    Nov 25, 2009, 9:07 AM - Anyone have contact details for Rimshot? #1

    Hi all,

    Does anyone here have (non-PM) contact details for Rimshot?
    Maybe a phone number or direct email address?

    He still owes me a lot of armor and a helmet (all of which were paid for months ago!!)

    He's not answering PM's and I've not heard from him for over a month, so if anyone has any idea how i can get hold of him I'd be glad to hear from you.

    cheers guys

    his AIM screen name is SnareDrummer415

    I think he lives in Indiana somewhere

    I purchased something from him years ago and had no issues, but as we know people and situations change. I'll dig through some of my old records and see what I can come up with.

    You have been more than patient with him in this, I hope everything works out for you.

    I didn't find anything in my archived emails, and I was using a different account here at the time (that I stopped using long enough that I couldn't post with it anymore so had to re register with a new name) I'll see if I can find anything on the old account, if I can get into it even...

    I was able to get into my old account and find the PMs from back in '04!

    Don't know if this is still the case, but he wouldn't take paypal then, only Money Orders so I have his mailing address. I used his name and city to look up his phone number on Whitepages.com the address listed on whitepages.com is the same one he had given me in 04 so it should still be current, as should his phone number. I'll shoot you a PM with all the info I have.

    He's just sent me an email and said not to waste my money calling!! Something to hide I wonder?
    He still has not explained why he hasn't sent my stuff.
    I think I'll give him a call anyway!

    Definately call him anyway, if he's not willing to give you an explanation, maybe his mom is, or will get on his case to get him to.

    Tell em your going to get the authorities involved, you have his home number so obviously you can find his home address; I am sure that would lite a fire under his *****.

    Funny that he can answer emails and IM's but, he can't check his PM's here and at Merc's and doesn't check the threads or talk to his customers...

    If there's more folks that need his contact info, just let me know. If enough people start calling his house I'm sure SOMETHING will get done.

    Hmm...Rimshot was one of the first members I bought stuff from when I first started here, couple different time even. He was great to deal with, and is obviously a long time member. I think I even bought some armor, maybe 6 months ago. I would say I have had at least 3 transactions with him, never any problems. Wonder what happened with him

    He will move

    Seriously, I hope this gets sorted for all members, this sort of behavior sucks, we are supposed to be a community here.

    Thing is Nobby's issues with him started more than 6 months ago...

    I hear what you are saying though. I bought a belt from him back in 04, no issues and quick turn around...

    Thanks guys for your support.

    I've spoken to him and the situation's like this:

    He's all but given up both here and on the mercs site, which is why he doesn't answer PM's. He's not been here since October, not sure about mercs.

    He's out of work and owes mommy and daddy money. He's spent all that I gave him.

    A sale of a large prop (maybe the one up his a** ) fell through and he was going to use this money to pay for shipping the rest of my stuff.

    Someone else (possibly his imaginary friend ) may be buying from him next week and he's going to let me know. Just like he promised me over a month ago - then.... nothing.

    So, basically all I'm getting is bullsh*t


    I've been doing a lot of thinking and I find myself in a position I do not like in the slightest. However, if his sale (if it even exists) falls through again I think I'm gonna send him the money so he can ship my kit to me.
    I would do this because if I don't, I fear I won't ever see the the really important bits of my costume (helmet, flak vest and armor). So I end up spending a little more to prevent myself losing a great deal of money.

    this situation sucks big time
