This guy played me for $35.00, claimed the Post Office “lost the item”. Now it seems there are others having the same type of problems. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS CLOWN!!!!

I hope he hasn’t ripped me off , as I just sent him a payment 5 days ago and haven’t heard from him since !

I started a dispute for the transactions on Paypal. Hopefully they get the money back.

Damn it, jackasses like this guy really ruin it for decent people. I guess I will have to stick with Ebay where the feedback system makes the process legit. Too bad LJ couldn’t have a system to weed out the criminals.

I thought his posts kind of smelled to start with.

If you sent this clown money, you should start a dispute right now with Paypal. Not sure how long it will take to get the money back, but the more complaints that are filed should mean it gets action sooner than later.

cr1, no, it is linked directly to my bank account. Never had to file a dispute, so let’s see how it works. It is not the amount of money that makes me mad, it is the damn trust he just took away. I will never use this site again to buy something, and that is too bad.

Paratrooper I’m sorry to hear you have had this problem. I’m a professional Clown and I would hope you wouldn’t think that a Clown is a bad person.

Deputy, you are right, I chose the wrong slur for this guy. I have nothing against clowns. Thanks for pointing out my faux pas.

My experiance

I tried to buy some chisels he had for sale. I checked his profile and his web site first. Then I posted a reply and sent a PM. No answer – no reply, so I figured already sold – just too busy to say so which seemed odd to me. So when he posted some more interesting things for sale, I passed.

I started my PayPal claim against him about an hour and a half ago. Not waiting around any longer to see if he responds .

Woodworkers selling on a forum are overall very honest, so it’s a shame there is a guy like this out there.
