TONY707 is a BAD SELLER!

I bought a pair of D44 flat top chevy knuckles from him. I paid him via PayPal on 4/14 and he kindly agreed to help me out and press the ball joints in the one knuckle since I didn't have the press cups readily available to me. He said he would ship them out monday or tuesday.

I live in SoCal and he is in NorCal and still nothing yet.

Hes not located in Napa, CA by chance is he? In my honda days there was a guy on our board with a similar screen name and if so i know where his parents live. However, that tony was a stand up guy so i have my doubts that it is indeed the same guy

I have zero reason to beleive he is not a stand up guy.....I am just not getting the normal 'warm and fuzzies' that one does with another Pirate guy when making a purchase.

A past post says he is from Santa Rosa, 95409

Still waiting....

I sent a PM 48 hours ago requesting a tracking number and the address to which the item was shipped.

Still no word.

You started a bad seller thread 9 days after you paid him. There was labor to be done, packing, and shipping. I don't know anything about this tony guy, but if someone started a bad sellers thread 9 days after paying me I would be in no hurry to appease or address him.

I think 9 days with no communication is plenty of time to give the guy.

XJCracker, please do not bump this more than once daily.

thats ridiclous .... its one thing to communicate that you havent had time to pack / labor etc .... but 9 days is plenty of time imo ... especially since this guy has had issues selling before

I alerted the admin on that board and made them aware of the situation and they removed the post.

Unfortunately not. He fell off 'the grid' and he blocked my number with Verizon. I call occasionally from other phones but I get nothing.

There is a special place in hell for people like this....
