This member contacted me about trading his #19S for my new TA51. I said sure.
Email communication was so so with him, but not a big deal to feel concerned.
Then I received an email stating that he will ship his mount after I ship mine with some sort of tracking. This nerved me a bit for several reasons. First he never mentioned his screen name so I could checkout his feedback (he could have easily checked mine @ +102). Secondly, he initiated the trade!
I sent him and email saying I was a bit taken back at first and that I needed his screen name to check his feedback (a whopping +1). He replies with his screen name and signs the email as:
Andy SXXXX, TSgt, USAF
Security Forces Supervisor
He never did that before.
Being the person I am, I go ahead and send the mount USPS Priority w/ DC figuring he is .mil and holds honor to high regard. Well I was wrong, here is what he sent me today:
I know the feeling about lossing something in the mail. I wanted to get back to you and let you know. I had someone trade me yesterday the mount for mine locally. When your package gets here I'll return ship it back to you via confirmation #. Sorry I couldn't do business with you but I didn't realize it would go so quick. Hopefully, we will be able to do business in the future.
Sure he is being polite, but he re-nigged on a deal, period! This trade agreement has been going on for a week and all the sudden the mount get traded locally. I call bullshit! He knew he made a deal with me. Military or not, he needs a -1 next to his name, even if I get my mount back. If I do not get my mount back I want him banned for down right theft.
