this may seem too simple, but have been in contact with the seller these past 6 months and demanded that he either send you the ammo or your money? or tried other avenues, contact the moderator of the forum, file a police complaint? rather then trying to get a third party involved
honestly, nvolving a private third party that has "no dog in the fight" may not fair well for that third party. as he,
like you, has no clue what this guy will do or is capable of doing when he is "cornered" so to speak.
even if I lived in the same neighborhood as this seller, I certainly wouldn't put on shinny armor for someone I don't know personally and gallop off to the rescue. things usually go south for the person being a knight in shinny armor
Good question, and yes, several times. He always promises and never delivers.
I have no reason to believe that this guy is doing anything nefarious or has ill intent, these 1000 rounds are the remainder of a larger transaction (he previously sent a 1919, tripod, and half the ammo). The transaction originated here on the boards and the post is still un-edited and up.
That's a fair point, and I don't intend to hide anything from anyone and will be upfront. Some people are comfortable with these situations, some aren't.
Good point though, I'll reach out to Rory.
In the past, I have seen transactions go south on other boards (never here) and involving local LEOs never really works well unless it amounts to felony dollars....and even then they don't really lift a finger.
It's just barely above the amount I would consider filing small claims over, but I wanted to see if this was an option first. I would prefer to pay a person than court and serving fees.
Anyways, thanks for reading guys.
