    Need General Grievous

    I have been trying to get in touch with General Grievous, Wayne, for the past 11 days and have not heard a word from him. I have tried emailing him, and sending him PM's. I have seen that he has been on the board but has chosen not to respond to my PM's.

    Does anyone know how to get in touch with him?

    Not sure what happened to him. He sold a bunch of things in the CH and I sent him a PM asking about it - never heard back.

    Hope everything is ok...

    Well I have opened up a Paypal dispute with him, maybe that will get his attention.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    I think he is a bit of a flake. He agreed to buy some stuff from me. He claimed he sent me a MO, but I never got one. Then he said he was going to paypal me right away. That never happened. I PM'd him a couple of times and he never responded after that.

    Yeah I sent him a PM with receipt so I will know if he reads it or not. And if he doesn't get back to me then I am going to go ahead and escalate to a claim with Paypal. I mean it is getting close to 2 weeks since I sent payment to him. Who can't ship something out in 2 weeks?

    Re: Need General Grievous

    I had a bit of a problem with him in the past too. I purchased an item from him, he didn't answer to PMs, e-mails, etc, and I then filed a PayPal dispute against him; got my money back, and so on.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    Well Grievous responded to me. Apparently he has injured himself, but the package is in the mail (but the tracking number is at his work). So we shall see if it arrives.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    I ordered something from him a couple of months back when he had his heart attack. It did get here, a little later than I would have hoped, understandably so but it did get here. Don't worry, Wayne will follow through!

    Re: Need General Grievous

    I haven't been around because 2 weekends ago I was helping a friend finish up a house he was building(he's a contractor). There was a large steel sewer pipe that was left in the front yard and the Builder wanted it put into the Dumpster.
    The thing was too heavy to carry so we had to hook it to the back of a truck and drag it to the dumpster. As we were trying to get it into the Dumpster it bounced back and Crushed my Right Hand. I'm right handed of course.
    So I can't work and it takes me forever to type. I'm having a hard time getting everything boxed one handed.
    I'm not making excusses, just letting you know why I haven't been around.
    Everyone who bought something from me rest assured your stuff is being shipped and I will update with tracking #'s. it may take a few days to get it all sorted and the rest shipped. I'm not out to rip anyone off.
    And I'm not a flake!
    Foxbatkllr, Sometimes Life gets in the way of our Hobbys. Did I send a Money Order? Yes. Where it ended up I don't know but was able to get my money back since it never cashed. I was going to paypal but again life happened. I should have PMed. I'm sorry.

    GCNgamer128, I don't remember this but with all that has happened lately that doesn't surprise me.

    But like I said, I'm not out to rip anyone off.
    Besides I wouldn't have sold the stuff I did if it weren't a necessity.
    Bubba fett, jon, PM sent.

    Wayne, glad to hear that you're ok. I know you have had some rough times lately. Hope the hand gets better soon.

    If not I know that they makes these robotic hands that loo totally real... Oh wait, that's a movie.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    Like I said in PM.
    I don't know what happened to it. Going to Germany from the US who can say.
    But I sent out the other one I had to replace it.
    Hopefully this one shows up.

    Let me know when it arrives.
    Wayne

    According to the US post office, they said 5-10 days. It is in a padded envelope so I don't know if that takes longer or not.
    But rest assured it is on the way. And this is the second one I sent. I have no more and it has cost me more to buy the 2 originally and ship them to germany than I sold the one for. More than likely you'll end up with 2.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    if i ever get 2 i'll send one back, as i only need one.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    ok,nothing arrived, and imo, nothing ever will. i have imported thousands of boxes and nothing ever got lost. and i don't see how 2 packages/envelopes would get lost from the same sender.

    All I know is that Both of them shipped!
    This is Exactly why I don't like Shipping Overseas.
    Besides, If I were the type of person who was going to sell something and Keep the money but not send anything, I don't think I'd waist my time with a $5 item.
    I don't know how long shipping to Germany takes. But I will tell you that since $3 shipping was paid, That was the cheapest shipping method.
    The Postal worker would not give me a Tracking/Del confirmation # for this envelope. He said that once it leaves the US they really can't keep track of it unless I wanted to send it Global Express(overnight) which would have cost me Close to $60.
    Not to mention you filed a Claim with paypal. And not having a tracking # to post with paypal you are 100% Guaranteed to get your money back.
    So I am out the Original cost of 2 Borden Connectors, Shipping for both connectors, and the money you paid for the Item(s). And I have no way of knowing if and when you get them.
    I've noticed people are QUICK to post threads Calling People out wanting to know where their Item is, but they Never follow up on the thread letting people know that they received the item in question.
    You could contact me via PM, but choose to keep this a Public matter when it should be private.
    It just to make me look bad.
    And I don't think it is right.
    But hey, I guess my opinion around here doesn't matter.

    Re: Need General Grievous

    I had someone ship something to me from Germany and he shipped it with the cheapest option and it took me 6 weeks to get my item! The box was nearly destroyed...

    I would trust Grevious over the postal service (not that I am trying to imply anything negative about him, since I don't know him)

    Just throwing out my 2 cents!

    i have sent you numerous pm's that you ignored, so you are kinda responsible yourself for this going public. you also ignored the first stage with paypal, you ignored them as well. i'm the last person to rip someone off, but gimme a break, a whole month to get an envelope over here? i only got responses from you posting in this thread, which didn't even get started by me. and as i told you before if something ever arrives i'll sent it back to you. and even if i get refund, it's no good to me because paypal will hit me with fees as well.

    sorry to hear that. but you are talking about a BOX! the item in question in my deal was "shipped" in an envelope, and that does not take longer than 2 weeks the most, and that if it's slow. the average time is 3-5 days. i get recorded shows on dvd's from the states and they take 5 days like clockwork, each and every week. and not one got lost in 4 years.

    The reason I didn't respond to paypal was because it gave me 3 options.
    Refund your money, post a tracking # to prove it had been shipped, or to provide proof I'd already given you a refund.
    So there was NOTHING I could respond to.
    I guess I should have just given you a refund since your going to get one anyway.
    In Fact, that is what I will do. I will tell paypal to give you a refund!
    For All your Trouble and since you had to wait so long.
    When I bought an Item here on The Dented Helmet that I didn't get right away, I waited 3 months before calling the person in Question out. and it was over $125.00.
    And another item I bought on another forum, that I paid $400 for, I waited a Year and a couple of months before I finally got a refund.
    I've been a member here for almost 3 years now and I think if I were really a Bad person I wouldn't still be here.

    Look at this:
    http://ircalc.usps.gov/IntlMailServi...1&P=0&O=8&sd=1
    Both items were shipped first class mail international. The only thing that shows delivery within 5 days is Express mail. and I wasn't about to spend $25 to ship a $5 item when we agreed on $3 shipping. They Told me 5-10 "Business" days, so weekends don't count.
    I don't know if you buy you dvd's from a company or individual, but that may make a difference if it is a company. Do they ship them for $3? And via First Class International? or do they send them Express?

    By the way, Refund sent. This should COMPLETE our transaction. Enjoy your free Borden Connectors.

    not that it is any of your business, i get them from a RELIABLE individual, shipping cost is $3.60 and sent air mail, not express. sent without protection and none got lost OR damaged in transit. and yeah, they all arrive within 5 days. and there is nothing to enjoy here for free. cause i don't have your stuff, and like i said if i ever get it, i'll sent it back to you and it won't take 4 weeks. i wouldn't want anything from you attached to my costume anymore, you cost me nothing but time and money. and i don't like to be kept for stupid. your "first" one had 4 weeks to arrive and your "second" 2 weeks!!! and both get lost, ....
    end of story and end of responses.
