After 9 years of mostly great dealings on EB, I might have finally been stiffed on a buy here... Does anyone have had any recent dealings with MillerTime04 that went south? Or that went well?

I still want to give him the benefit of the doubt but he’s been AWOL for a week now with $460 and nothing to show for it (except a tracking no. that doesn’t even show a pickup).

Starting to worry...

Edit: Seems like he scammed a couple more people, so PLEASE BEWARE everyone! I did pay F&F as I had smooth dealings with him in the past. My fault, I guess. Live and learn and all that. Even though I still like to think of this place as different, especially for people that go way back...

Sometimes they are shitty with scans. I’ve had stuff delivered that never updated until after the delivery happened.


Also a week seems kind of premature for a callout IMO but best of luck dude. Hope everything works out :pint:

I've shipped several things of late that don't scan in until it gets to the city it's going to. Monday was also a holiday, so I'd give it some time. :pint:

Appreciate the remarks and as I said, I don’t want to loose hope in the guy (!) just yet, but:
  • - The package supposedly went out on 3 May
    - Millertime04 said UPS “can’t find it” now
    - up until a week ago Millertime04 responded very fast to every message I’ve sent.
    - 20 May he said, he would refund me by that week’s Friday
    - haven’t heard from him since
You tell me if this still sounds reasonable...

Dudes name is Millertime and he just had a three day weekend. Give him a week to nurse his hangover.

Yep, time for a call out. UPS is a whole lot less likely to "lose" something as compared to USPS. Time to file with PayPal unless you (gulp) paid using friends and family.

He's def had problems in the past and had pretty chitty Ebay feedback at one point IIRC. Unfortunately I'm getting old AF and can't recall the details.

Seems like he scammed a couple more people, so PLEASE BEWARE everyone! I did pay F&F as I had smooth dealings with him in the past. My fault, I guess. Live and learn and all that. Even though I still like to think of this place as different, especially for people that go way back...

Will hold out for a couple more days before I’ll start naming names. :evil:
