i'm airing a grievance right now and not sure how to proceed:
i purchased an engine and trans from a respected senior member on the forums here. (I'll keep his name out for now out of respect for his rep here.)
the transaction occurred over a month ago. (around 6/22)
i (right now feeling stupidly) deposited the money to his account.
He claims to have put the engine and trans on a pallet and it was on its way.
I've repeatedly asked him for a pic or image of some sort of the shipping manifest so I can track it.
I've received excuses like: (paraphrased)
"I'm out of town on vacation.
"I'm out of town for my son's birthday."
"Work has been crazy busy."
"I gave the shipping company the wrong phone address/ph# for the receiving party."
I've texted him and called a few times over the last month and I want to believe him, but he has not given me much reason to believe him now.
I've asked for shipping info or my money back tonight.
I'm hoping I get a response soon because nothing has arrived as of today.
I'm frustrated beyond expletives right now.
