    Nobby, it is good that he is talking to you, lets take that as a positive. However, if he is out of work he must have all the time in the world to be making prop stuff?

    Are there any members living close to him that can help out, i.e. collect the stuff, or he can ship it inside the us (less cost), then you send them the money to ship to the UK? Sending him more money, although I see where you are coming from, is still a bad idea. Maybe another alternative is to pay a courier such as DHL to collect from his address, if it falls through and you loose your money at least he did not have it?

    Also, what is he making for you and is it coming finished? I have been reading the other threads and can't keep up lol.

    Nobby, can you PM me the contact information you have for Rimshot please? I need to make it available to the member's that he's screwing over at Mercs.

    Thanks man, I hope you get your stuff!

    Well, positive that he's FINALLY talking to you. However, the whole I've given up here and Mercs that's why I don;t check the boards or PM's anymore, is a load of hogwash and makes him a thief and a contract breacher. I'm sure he was great in the old days however, in the last year he hasn't been at all. He's been a con artist.

    So basically, he took peoples money they spent from props and shipping and spent it on his own personal needs and "floated" the existing orders with ne wincoming orders. However, when word got out that he was hosing people, new orders stopped coming, leaving the last batch of customers and you as well Nobby up the creek...

    Maybe if you offer to go pick it up yourself...

    So wait, he's broke and lives with his parents? How old is this guy? And I must admit Nobby, sending him MORE money is a bad idea.

    I was considering getting it for you but it's 4 hrs. each way I live in the Chicago suburbs. Honestly I would not send him anymore money, actually I'd get the authorites involved if it's a significant sum of money. PM me if you need any further assistance, I'd be happy to try and help you with forwarding any info to the police if you have trouble doing it on your own.

    If he can give you the size and weight of the package , you can print and mail a shipping label off usps.com send it to him ,and then you are at least sure that he isnt getting any more of your money .

    You can even do a UPS call tag. They will go to his door and pick it up. That way you don't need to worry about him not having the time to go to the post office. Or some other lame reason. good luck..

    Yeah, I've already requested these details from him.
    But with it being Thanksgiving weekend, I haven't heard back from him yet.

    I've also had a very generous offer from another member here to go pick up my stuff and send it to me (at my own expense of course).

    Rimshot last said to me that he'd let me know on Monday or Tuesday about the 'deal' he has yet to finalise, but I'll keep you guys posted on any developments.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support you have shown me in this matter.

    cheers guys.

    Reminds me of my dealings with JB buying a Vader helmet and getting ripped off. Excuse after excuse. I hate the feeling and suffer with you man!

    He was selling the Proton Pack to pay for my shipping, but seeing as it did not sell I'm now back in the same situation I was in a week ago.

    I'm going to try to get hold of him today and see what he says.
    If I don't get appropriate answers then I'll send Ernie a PM.

    cheers guys

    Re: Anyone have contact details for Rimshot?

    Transcript of a conversation I've just had with him on Yahoo messenger:

    (I had previously asked him if Ernie could pick my stuff up for me)

    Andrew Robinson: Hi Mark, if you let me know his address, I can ship the items to him if thats how you would like to handle it. Shipping them within the U.S. would be much much cheaper than sending them overseas.

    nobbynobby40: No, this guy lives 15 minutes away from you. He would then ship straight to me. It's going to cost me more money, but at this rate I'm never going to get my stuff.

    Andrew Robinson: My parents would not want a stranger coming here. They are very private people. In fact after you called that time, I got interogated as to how you got their phone number. I had to explain it was on my paypal account, and they made me change it. My shipping it to him would be the best option

    nobbynobby40: Well if you had shipped to me as you had promised, and I paid for, we wouldn't be in this predicament.

    nobbynobby40: Surely you can tell your parents to expect someone to come pick this stuff up if I give you his details

    nobbynobby40: All you need is to have it ready for collection. He would not come into your home. Just take my stuff and leave

    Andrew Robinson: Let me discuss it with my parents and see what they say. I will get back with you

    nobbynobby40: Ok. Please do.

    Andrew Robinson is typing...

    Andrew Robinson: I have to go now, but will get back to you with an answer as soon as I can

    nobbynobby40: Thank you, I would appreciate a quick reply

    END TRANSCRIPT


    Something seems very fishy here. Why won't he let anyone come to his house???????????

    I'll post more as soon as I have it.

    Latest:

    Andrew Robinson: I talked to my mother, and she said I would need to discuss it with my father. He gets home from work in about 7 hours, so I will have an answer sometime after that.

    Re: Anyone have contact details for Rimshot?

    Just as an FYI. We've banned Rimshot over at on the Mercs site in lieu of all this. We've got his contact info on file for anyone who's gotten screwed over by him.

    I'm glad your making *some* headway with him Nobby. I hope it works out for everyone who's still waiting on gear.
