Default RANT- christoph

On the 1st of july i purchased a set of 3 stud 10mm spacers/bolts off christoph on here, he was paid and said he'd send out the item on the 2nd of july.



I had nothing come for over a month! On the 2nd july he messaged me saying he hadn't got a chance to send them before his holiday so would send them out that day.


2 weeks later and still nothing! im pretty hacked off tbh! They didnt cost alot but i haven't been able to drive my car without them! He reads my messages/comes online but no replies.

Ive dealt with some amazing traders on here who have been helpful throughout the whole process! He has been the exact oposite.

I cant even claim back my money due to shutting my paypal account. Buying off him has cost me 1 1/2 months insurance and the orginal price of the parts!

Pissed off.

Rant over.

I do wish people would check the forum sections properly before going off on one!!

That being said, I hope you get this sorted asap.

Well you left yourself open and vulnerable to being scammed by closing your paypal account. Doing that has like insured you as much as sending him cash in the post or paying by paypal gift.

Have you even tried to re-open your account?

He's been online and posting around since this thread was posted, it would be decent of him to come on here and maybe explain himself....

It seems pretty obvious that he's trying it on tbh mate, if you have de-activated your PayPal then there's little chance that you can get your money back tbh

All you can really do now is send a link to this thread on every for sale thread he makes from now on, and put other people off from buying off him..... and that hopefully might kick his arse into gear to pay you back

I have had a message back, with proof that the money has been refunded via paypal.

You now need to get in touch with paypal and re-open your account to be able to claim back the refund
