Technically it was a sale, not a trade.
I’ve had to do 3 call out threads in 17 years… all of them were old members we all know.
Not fun.

I Bought a Sperry Stockholm Syndrome for 313.00 that arrived 1/10.
I explained that I was upgrading and not to send if it had any issues… I asked two times, stressing that it had to be “ perfect”.
Upon opening I immediately knew I’d been misled.
The poster was obviously stored in a tube.
Not stored in a tube for a while and it’s been flat for months…. It’s the curliest poster ever.
Like fighting a big flopping fish to get the ends down - curly.

I wrote back “ There’s no way this poster was flat a week ago. WTF? “
Upseeker “ Misunderstanding… I didn’t say it was flat “

Me “ I wouldn’t have purchased if I didn’t know it wasn’t in mint condition. You’ve been here almost as long as I have, of course I didn’t ask if it had been in a tube for 11 years.”

Upseeker. “ How about a refund of $100.”
Me “ Too generous… 50 is fine.”

3 days later…
Me “ Checking in…. “
Upseeker “ All good about to unplug for a month. Seriously. Peace “ :?

5 days later
Me “ It’s not all good here. Please send the 50. I want to put this whole thing to bed”

7 days later I send a PayPal request and resent my PayPal address.
9 days later Upseeker “ I returned the 50 but you don’t have a PayPal account. “

12 days later
Me “ I’ve had the same PayPal account for 18 years… did you see the request?”

13 days later ( Monday ) He reads the message.
16 days later ( Today ) …… Nothing.

DMB related screen name. Shocking.

This is pretty lame.

TJBU is one of the kindest, well known and best established traders on this site. Going on what, 18 years now?

Upseeker, make it right. He even gave you a cheaper out before you vanished. Cmon.

So there it is …
Carl is a shady liar and a thief.
No concept of integrity. Just money.
I’ll bump this thread as he posts his damaged prints and tries to swindle members.
