Just a heads up, beware who you send money to using f/f, if they rip you off, you have no recourse. Sadly, some folks on this site are thieves. There’s no need to comment, it’s just a warning.
I paid for a scope and didn’t get it. It’s his duty to make me whole and file a claim. He knows I didn’t get it and refuses to refund my money. In court he’d lose 100% of the time. Im sorry that you’re wrong.
You couldn’t be more wrong. He changed carriers on his own. Like I said, he said he was filing a claim. If he did, he has my money, Fed Ex money, and I have no money and no scope. That’s a thief.Well this is FAR different that calling the seller a thief. If seller used tracking, which they sure should have, then what does it show? Did some carrier screw it up and lose it? Here is where insurance comes in. If it was me? I would put insurance on as part of the sale, if I was selling. If I was buying from a private party? I would again want insurance unless the cost was so little I really did not care if they lost it. Now when buying online from retail? You are correct, it is up to the seller to make sure you get what you pay for. This is why I only use a Credit card for this kind of buying. Many here promote the deals available on the auctions if you send a Postal Money Order. I have long warned against this for just this reason. As for a transaction between 2 people here? Sorry but no. If you chose to give him money trusting some common carrier or the USPS with no insurance? Well you took a risk and this time lost. Some common sense needs to be used when trusting either the common carriers or the USPS. They are far from perfect. Assuming the carrier did lose this, you really want some guy to just take the hit since you decided you did not want insurance?

Holster your ignorance. You’re playing expert when you haven’t a clue. This incident happened in February, and he hasn’t responded in months. Go on knowing nothing but acting like you do. He’s been given every opportunity. He should have refunded me, and gone after the Shipper. That’s how it works. His issue is with the Shipper.OK, I'm done with this, you clearly do not want to hear anything. I know I would be sure to never do a deal with you here. Hopefully if he did file a claim he (seller) will get paid, and then can refund your money. Don't know how long it takes for a claim to go through the hoops. Doubt it is anything like just doing a charge back on a credit card.
They said it’s friends/family so they won’t do anything, and to never use that option for goods/services.Also one thing I’ve learned with PayPal, they side with the seller almost 100% of the time if they have a tracking number showing it was in fact shipped and delivered.
True, but most folks these days require it for online forum sales to avoid the fees.They said it’s friends/family so they won’t do anything, and to never use that option for goods/services.
