Problem with deal with Bullet133 *Many Pictures*

Hello nation, I recently did a deal with Bullet133 for an Empire HPA for $75 shipped. Payment was sent Monday 9/24 and he still has not shipped the item.

We talked through e-mail on Tuesday 9/25 and he informed me that he would ship the tank the next day 9/26. Then Wednesday night he e-mailed me informing me that he wouldn't be able to ship the item until 10/1 and to text him.

I proceeded to text him and he informed me that his grandfather died late Tuesday night and he wouldn't be able to ship until the first of October. I'm not unreasonable and told him that would be fine.

The rest of our conversations were through text messages and I don't have a smart phone that I can upload the texts. I won't say what was said through texts since I can't provide the evidence to back it up but as of this posting the item has not been shipped to my knowledge. It was my mistake to talk to the seller through a means that I could not prove to a third party, I know that.

All relevant pictures are below. Please inform me if I missed something or messed up somewhere. Thanks.

PayPal payment was sent through regular PayPal (not gifted) and I have started a claim.

I apologize in advance for the large amount of pictures.

I wasn't sure if I should black out his name on the PayPal transaction so I did. Please let me know if I should post a PayPal picture with his name uncovered.

Just a note even without a smart phone you request a log of text messages from your cell provider.

Ah, thank you for that information I was not aware. Some technology I am good with and some I am not haha. If it comes down to that I will do it but I don't think it will. I just want my items or my money.

Sounds like he may be trying to stall you to get outside the window to file a PP claim. Go ahead and file the claim, you can always cancel it if/when you get the tank. Just don't cancel it before you have it in your possesion.

Thanks for the advice. I filed a claim last night just in case he was using stall tactics and will be escalating Monday if no reply is given.

You can also take pictures of your phone's screen to show what was said, and by whom. Easy to edit out phone numbers from pictures with paint.

This is probably the route I would take if it came down to it being needed. Thanks for the tip.

(as your screenshot shows) keep the paypal claim open until you are 100% satisfied. Once closed, you cannot reopen it.

If you are still unhappy with the transaction, make sure you leave the appropriate feedback. Let everyone know what kind of guy he is to deal with, and any potential problems they might encounter.
