As ive already done my research on this particular member, I know that Communication between himself and buyers is quite limited as i know of his work arrangements. I have been very patient with Saxplee and i have almost waited a Month for my Wind deflectors to turn up. And to be honest, this is Unacceptable.

On the 15th of November, i sent payment to Saxplee's Email address and payed him VIA paypal in full as "PAYMENT" (See Attachment Screenshot)

I then sent him an Private message straight away to let him know.

At this point. I start to become on edge, as he only replies when i message him first. as a Seller, i would expect him to give me most up to date information ive payed money and been very patient.

Give me the service i have payed for.

it goes on....

I message im frequently after this and SUPRISE no answer, aware that he often works away and doesnt have access to messages, i begin to dig deeper, i find that he is online pretty much everyday, checking from his last login date. i become worried. message him again stating that i can see his activity... nothing.

So after his reply on the 26th of November, i have heard NOTHING onwards. This is Appalling. i have been waiting up to a month for this item. and get next to no response.


I then find that his For Sale thread is still active, and to my suprise... i write on this thread asking where my wind deflectors are. and i am ignored.

He just merely rights "bump" and doesnt even acknowledge that ive been attempting to contact him.


This is Absolutely Rude.

Almost a month has gone by. i am willing to go through legal action, it seems alot for £30 payment for a bit of plastic.

But after this, that is the next step.


I hope and can get some assistance with this matter.

If you paid the charge then its unlikely it was as goods
I wouldnt waste my time waiting for a response I would get straight onto paypal and see if you can open a dispute
this will of course depend on what you sent the payment as. because if it was a gift you are screwed.

What's the status of this?

Saxplee - you need to deal with this. This is the second suspected scammer thread raised about you.

You have PM - please don't ignore it like the one you ignored from Simon on the 13th...

Now you have them back in your possession.

You should issue a refund ASAP.

Then start your claim with Royal Mail to claim back your losses afterwards.

But you got the money for a 4-2-1 manifold waiting, why not get the cash you claim to have waiting for one and pay this guy back.

Imo i think you never sent them, you crashed your car and wanted a corsa or something but now you got/getting another Saxo you want to keep all these items. Which of corse is understandable but you can not mess people around.

Pics of wind deflectors?
Pics of damaged box with stamp/sticker/proof of posting?
Otherwise this is a scam!

As mentioned above, you claim to have cash to get a manifold

You can't have it both ways.

I had problems with this lad, I was going to get some dials from him so asked for his number. He gave me his number but said I am transferring my number as i got a new phone. I was unable to go collect the dials so sent a text message to the lad explaining i had to work.

It got to mid day and I received a high rate phone call from a totally different number asking where i was and do i want the dials or what?

IIrc he had issues with another member on the forum too as he was "working away" but he works at Mc Donalds?

So now you're online saxplee can you post photos if the above? Packaging, etc?

That will help people believe you.
