Hey all- been trying to get a hold of TLobe00 since Dec 12 with no reply!? Anyone having the same issue?
Man..this isnt looking good.
Have you tried to message him on FB or other routes? I am sure he is around somewhere.
Hey Mullreel- Just found Tony's email in my PP account next to the paid invoice. Email sent and waiting for a status update.
Hey guys- Wanted some thoughts/opinions on how to handle this situation. I have been unsuccessful at reaching TLobe00 and have been trying to do so since Dec 19th in which he explained that he would have my girth belt out to me within the week. What concerns me is that Tony has indeed taken my $170 payment. Id appreciate any feedback from members and hopefully ...I'll get this resolved in a sane and timely manner.
Still no word.........turning GREEN
Hey guys- Just a quick update. I have sent Tony several messages via PM, email as well as FB. It is evident that he has been active on his FB account (Mar 3)only to completely ignore my attempts at reaching him. I do not enjoy labeling someone a thief or as being dishonest however, TLobe00's actions have left me no choice in judging his character. I do hope this member does surface very soon in order to save face to other board members as well as remedy this situation.
Alright guys- It appears that TLobe00..Tony is indeed a THIEF. Quite frankly for someone to visit this site (yesterday 2:36 PM) and simply snub and ignore my attempts at contacting him is absolutely cowardice. This is my 3rd year on this wonderful board and up until this point I have had 0 issues with anyone. Well now, TLobe00...I have an issue with you. I have an issue with the $170 that you have stolen from me....and this will not go unnoticed buddy.:thumbsup
Maybe try another member in ohio? I dunno what to tell you other then send someone after him...
I'm sorry you're having trouble. My dealings with him were great. Great product. It took a few months from what I recall but only a few. I'm sure he'll come through.
Mods- send him a PM or two? This is legitimate.
Cmon, TLobe00 (Tony), time to step up and handle the situation.
Yes...thanks guys. All Tony had to do was simply keep in contact? Keep me up to date.The last thing i wanna do is fry someones reputation.
Still no sign of TLobe00...
Tony- Sooner or later your gonna have to address this situation. Either send me the belt, or refund my money. Its not too late to save your reputation on this board. So far there are a few hundred members that know you are not only avoiding me, but that you have also had my money since November 14th. Lets handle this.
Wow. This surprises me. Ive met Tony and he even gave up his personal time to come as Jango to my kid's birthday party. Is it possible that he has real life issues, medical problems etc? I hate anyone on here (as long as I've been around) to be branded as "thief" if there could be some acceptable excuse. I hope you guys get this worked out......
Me too butterbean. Believe me..as i said before, the last thing i wanna do is fry someones credibility. I am sympathetic to life situations/crisis etc. i was truly hoping to facilitate some type of response privatley (thru pm) at this point, discuss the matter, remedy the situation and move forward. I tried numerous times to contact thru email and PM. On Nov 14 Tony explained he liked to get the belts out within 2 weeks of payment. Around Dec 2, Tony explained he would have it to me shortly after the Holiday. I did wait many weeks even after that until i attempted to contact him as to not be that "impatient member" banging down the artists door. I too hope he addresses this issue shortly as it is nearing the 5 month mark. Any help is welcome.
This was the last conversation which took place Dec 19th:
"Hey Tony- just checking on my belt...hope all is well.
"Hey there, sorry for the delay... I will have it out to you this weekend... of course with the holiday next week, you should have it hopefully next week then.
CRICKET, CRICKET, CRICKET CRICKET................
Alright, once AGAIN Tony TLobe00 was on this board 3/19 at 5:45pm yet again to completley ignore my attempts at collecting my $170 girth belt!!! UNBELIEVABLE TONY! How about...MAN UP and handle this situation. Just an FYI, I am not going anywhere. I will continue to post until you handle this.
Wow, this dude is a complete d-bag to continually log in and blow you off B. hopefully art or Scott will ban this a-hole.
Side note I'm almost ready to make those circuits, when I get a few up and running I will let you know. Should be in a couple of weeks.
Thanks for the support Jc. Yes, this is indeed getting rediculous.
Perhaps contact his garrison CO, see if anyone local to him can get you an explanation. Of course, be as courteous as you can in that message I suppose.
Attention: if anyone could help me out in the Ohio Garrison w/ regards to contacting Tony that would be much appreciated.
ONCE AGAIN...TLobe00 active on the board AGAIN today at 12:02pm...lets do something about this please!
TLobe00 Update- ALright guys..Some promising news. Tony did contact me and will be getting the belt out to the post office tomorrow at his earliest convenience. It seems as if this situation may finish on a positive note. I will keep everyone updated.
Glad to hear it!!!
Man B I hope he's a man of his word! At least he finally got in contact, that's one step in the right direction!
yes me too ; )...Thanks Christy!
Hmm, that is odd that it says I logged in, I swear I have not been on this board since sometime in (I believe early) February (due to MANY real-life issues)
as for your belt, as per the PM I sent you, it should be out to you by this Friday I also PMed you the tracking number... now that everyone thinks I am a d-bag, I guess I can leave the girth belts to someone else, as no one will buy from me most likely... Guess I pulled a Crow on this one.
Also, please let me know if the girth belt meets your expectations or not, I really strive to deliver a great product.
And thanks to those who said that I would pull through with my promise of delivery
Hey Tony- Great to hear from you. Let me just begin by stating as I have numerous times throughout my countless emails/ Pm's to you that it was never my intention to defame your reputation on this board. When I initially contacted you November 12th 2012 it was due to your reputation as, and rightfully so, one of the "go-to" guys w/ respect to the quality of your product. As a result of our conversations between Nov. 12-14th I chose to purchase one of your girth belts. Without boring members w/ the already discussed details of this matter you replied to me with "I usually try to get these out within 2 weeks." As already stated, I contacted you on Dec 19th (four weeks later) just to "check on the belt situation" and your reply was, and I quote, "I will have it out to you this weekend"...I never heard from you again until This Monday. Now, as someone who works in customer service (which is by definition the provision of service before, during and after a purchase) quality and communication among other variables are extremely important. I do not doubt, and never have the quality of your product however, As your customer, I was not satisfied with the quality of your communication/ service. Again, as stated before, a simple 3-word update or email would have sufficed as most of us on this board do understand "life" does from time-to-time create unexpected circumstances of which I do hope yours has subsided and that you and your family are healthy.And, as your "activity" on this board, I can only speak of what was witnessed by myself and other members on the previous dates stated earlier in this thread?
Tony, I am indeed a man of my word. When I do receive your product on Friday, I will , as everyone else has (I'm sure) speak of its high quality. As a result of the positive note which this situation has ended upon, I am sure you will still conduct business as usual as your time permits. Although, I do hope that you will do so with a greater understanding of the customers’ needs as well as expectations on an accurate timeline.
As far as I'm concerned we are nearing the end of this issue and to me......all is good
Hate to bring this thread to the forefront yet again however, this order has yet to be satisfied and have had a few failed attempts at contacting Tony. Any insite from the community and/or TLobe00 himself would be appreciated.
You still haven't gotten your belt yet? *** man. I know I haven't been a vendor here long and I don't sell too many things, but I can't believe that it has been impossible for him to keep you updated on the status of your belt. When I sell a kit, I do not even give out my Paypal info to a customer until I have a kit completed, tested and packed up for them. This way they get it ASAP and I update each buyer with PMs about shipping info. If there is a delay I let them know as soon as I know there will be one and keep them updated on my progress. It's not that hard to let people know the status of their item, especially since they have already paid for it.
Agreed Jc:thumbsup..I did receive a belt after the initial issue we had however, it was WAY to small. He agreed to replace after I emailed him w/ photos etc The item was returned to him on April 13th (yes 6 months ago). haven't heard anything?I simply don't understand either.
Wow that is terrible
I have had the same exact thing happen to me by Dave Mondo a.k.a. Vader Dave. I gave him nearly $300 to make a Han Solo holster in February. He told me6-8 weeks, then a butt load of lies since then and I still have nothing. he spent the last 3 months not responding. I know he is still active in 501st so I am trying to get some help through my CO, but what can they do really?
Sorry to hear it bro and it sounds like this is happening more and more these days...
BTW: I've been referring to Vader Dave.
Well... Glad we can all vent together LOL!.. it's really unfortunate not to mention unethical...I am sure paths will cross and I look forward to this day ; ). Hopefully this works out for all of us however its looking grim.
You could have just added a belt to the armor you got from me and had it by now. ;)
I hope he resolves the situation asap. :/
Just an update incase members were wondering....still no Tlobe00. Love to see him at celebration ; )
We'll give him a Code Red.
