    Hi

    Two weeks ago here was post from VapeXhaleCloudIsLEGENDARY about selling Mobius Stereo Matrix (cant find that thread).
    I sent him PM and we make deal later via email. I paid with PayPal 520$ tor glass, case and shipping.
    Look what I got today

    Box that I received was light as feather, can that be proof that he didn't sent right one, and there wasn't case in it too.
    He sent me pictures of matrix and case in inbox.
    It was my last money, and I borrowed some for that peace, please what can I do now?
    Thanks

    I do hope he does the right thing, and fix this. I recognize that bong he sent you, as the one on the right here.

    Ten days ago i made a deal with Vapevoice. A straight up trade for my pax for his Glassblowers FC bubbler. I sent my pax Dec 15th and due to complications he sent his december 20th. He told me nothing was wrong at all with the bubbler. I received the bubbler broken on christmas eve. it was broken specificallyy where the mouthpiece connects to. It seemed to be shipped well with lots of peanuts and bubble wrap. Only a small dent on side of shipping box.Also he neglected to even send me the mouthpiece. My last classified transaction was with Vapevoice and it was an extremely easy and fast process, i dont know what happened this time...Now im paxless and with a broken bub w/ no mouthpiece

    Whoa! There was nothing wrong with that bubbler when it was sent. The mouthpiece was missed by my wife when she packed the box. Simple to fix but, I moved and my things just arrived via the movers today. Your negative post is unwarranted and unappreciated. I have done multiple trades here and never had an issue. The box had insurance on it and you can put in a claim with USPS. The mouthpiece will be mailed the moment it is unpacked. I am sorry for your misfortune, but the bubbler was spotless when it left here and she packed it bomb proof.

    I just deleted 25 posts from this thread. The purpose of this thread is to make other FC members aware of a bad experience in the Classifieds. It is not for problem resolution or general discussion. Unfortunately, the link in the opening post to the old thread where this was spelled out got broken. (It's fixed now.)

    From this point on, the rules are:
    • This thread is for transaction feedback posts only! It is not a discussion thread. If you don't have a bad transaction to report, don't post!
    • The only exception is that the reported party can make one post to respond. All other interactions must be taken elsewhere.
    • YOU MUST WAIT 30 DAYS AND HAVE TAKEN ALL REASONABLE STEPS TO RESOLVE THE ISSUE BEFORE REPORTING!

    Comments: I sent him the item and he claims to never received it. I think he did, I shipped it via UPS postage and never had a problem before. Seller may be taking advantage cause I didnt provide tracking.

    Just this statement alone shows he is not being truthful. He did not use UPS according to his own words. He used USPS supposedly, in a regular envelope with 3 stamps. Quite negligent considering the contents. Two weeks later I have not received the item and he still has my money. Yet I'm the scammer? Please be careful when dealing with him.

    Ugh, I hate to do this but I feel I have no choice at this point:

    Trade with: @exit

    Item: Her Jet Water Pipe for my SSV

    Payment: Straight trade

    Shipping: I shipped to her on December 18, 2013.

    Rating: 0/5

    Comments: I'll explain the entire story since there were faults originally on my side. The communications for this trade started in late November. I was in finals and my friend was in possession of my vape. I didn't get the vape shipped off until December 18th, but I did get it shipped off then and provided a tracking number for exit to follow. I confirmed with her personally that it had arrived.

    When this item was supposedly first shipped, there was an error on my part. I was having the item shipped to my friend in the US since I'm in Canada. I provided the wrong zip code and apparently the itme was returned for re-sending. Exit said I would be provided with a tracking number this time so I could follow it.

    It has been a month since the zip code correction has happened. There have been no signs of the Jet. I was never provided with a tracking number, so there is very little I can do to even monitor it. As of now, the JET is still MIA and I have next to no ability to do anything about this. Furthermore, Exit has not responded to the numerous PMs I've been sending over the last 3 weeks. Absolute silent treatment despite other posts around this site.

    As of now, I feel like I've been scammed out of my SSV. I would still love for this problem to be fixed...I'm not happy that I don't have my SSV anymore. But it doesn't seem like there is much to be done except warn others.

    UPDATE (3/31/14): Got in contact with the person but besides a single message exchange, still no progress. Silence on her end again over the last 2 weeks, even though she is now aware and has acknowledged the problem.

    UPDATE (5/01/14): No contact AT ALL since the previous update. Total silence. I've given up on this trade.

    As far as I'm concerned, @exit is a thief. At the very least, she is someone who gives 0 fucks about completing her end of the bargain. Over half a year since this transaction happened and I never received my part of the trade OR any compensation for it. That is in addition to the worst communication I've ever had in any kind of online interaction.

    Avoid this user like the plague. I really can't say anything nicer. Terrible communication, never received my part of the trade, and actively ignores private messages despite checking into this site. There has been more than enough time to fix this problem and yet NOTHING.

    UPDATE (6/28/14): Just an FYI, the user is posting actively again in classifieds, but has chosen not to make this trade right since March. Be careful before doing anything with this user. Seriously, I lost my SSV to her.

    Before I start, I'd like to say that I was ultimately able to resolve the issue with this seller, but it did take over a month of headaches.

    Seller: Mrmrmrmr

    I had purchased a SSV from this seller and the next day he said he had a family emergency and couldn't ship. Throughout the rest of the week, he made repeated promises to ship, but never did. The fourth time, I didn't hear back from him the day he said he was supposed to send it, and when I messaged him about it the next day, I didn't get a response within 24 hours.

    A week had gone by since I sent him the payment, so I went to PayPal with a dispute. He immediately contacted me on my personal email and told me he'd ship as soon as I dropped the dispute. Once dropped, a dispute can't be reopened, so he could've just not sent the package and I'd have no mode of recourse, so I didn't.

    He continued asking me to drop the claim and essentially tried hustling me. He waited till the last minute to respond to the dispute, which had been escalated to a claim, generating a shipping label for PayPal, but still didn't ship anything for weeks. I'd already gotten another SSV by this point and just wanted my money back.

    After some more waiting and bickering, we finally reached a compromise. Again, he tried to get me to cancel the claim before he shipped, and I essentially had to lie and say I'd drop it once I saw activity on the tracking number. I instead opted to wait until I received the package and verified it's contents, which were as described.

    I'm satisfied with the item I received, but completely dissatisfied with what I had to go through to get it.

    Just saw this post above so I would like to respond.
    Shortly after Jambi sent me the money for the ssv my father had some life threatening medical issues that I won't get into to but as I said this was life and death. I am the sole caretaker of him and that took up much of my time. I do admit I could of have handled this better however I was extremely stressed out and dealing with many different obstacles thrown at me including financial problems. I was away from all Internet for several days and was unable to contact the buyer. I got no notice of a claim being filed and had I gotten one would have tried my hardest to resolve all problems. We worked out a deal and I shipped out the trade we decided on. I was in no way trying to "hustle" anyone as that is in no way who I am. The buyer has taken several things out of context and made me out to be the bad guy. I'd like to say that my dad is much more important to me then making a sale. Again I regret handling it the way I did , simply put family always comes first and I put everything else in my life at that time on hold to care for him.

    This is my last and final hope to get some fair and honest help.
    Member 420democrat
    He sold me an Indica that he stated he bought at the Denver Show. He sold it to me stating that the warranty would be honored by the company. When I received the unit it would not heat up. I contacted him I wanted to return it or exchange it for a working unit. He told me
    "You have the unit and a warranty paper nothing shady about contacting, the warranty is in your vaporization guide and a model number under the usb."
    I explained to 420democrat that it did not sound honest and I wasn't sure they would honor the warranty.
    I asked him to send me his original receipt then I will contact the company. I stated that if you do not have that than you are not being honest about any of this. You said you had 3 of these units so switch this out with a working one. I don't want my money. I just want a working vape."
    I have had to file a complaint with Paypal. I recieved this from 420democrat today:
    " I certainly did contact paypal and provided our conversations, insured mailing reciepts and a reciept of my unit to ensure the claim will end in my favor. Your who took it upon yourself to escalate the situation when from the beginning I insisted if your unit was not functioning to use what you had at hand for a replacement and if that route didn't work I would assist you. I've been nothing but fair the whole time. There was a very simple solution from the beginning that you didn't want to do and now find yourself doing it anyways."
    Well I have emailed Indica and asked them to make a statement on F.C to help clear up what the company standard is.
    Hopefully this will convince 420democrat to do the right thing.
