    I think the lesson to learn here is that word-of-mouth references don't mean shit. If I'm going to send someone a $1k+ piece of equipment I better have some solid evidence that they're reputable (eBay, iTrader, whatever).

    It looks like it's only been about three weeks since the transactions... this seems a little soon to be jumping the gun on getting police involved and blasting someone in public like this.

    3 weeks? I've NEVER had something take 3 weeks to get to me. Besides, check the behavior of this guy. He has time to get on and call people childish names (without using punctuation, just as an added aggrivator) but no time to send a freakin' tracking number? We're not jumping the gun - I'd say this is justified.

    If someone called me a scammer in a public forum, i'd be pretty fucking ticked as well.

    Sometimes life happens. Important shit can come up. I'm not making excuses for LAMetalShop, but let's take a step back and let the involved parties sort it out among themselves.

    In private.

    Totally agreed. But what if you don't have an answer from your seller for 2 days in a row and the telephone number provided by him isn't working? You'll have to do whatever it takes to get a hold of him since he isn't responding.

    I'm with Adam on this one. His behavior is just as malicious as his lack of ethics. Plus, he's got a fairly tenuous grasp on the English language. Case in point..

    *Another member received the same bogus picture of a receipt/tracking number from this guy. This makes it official, in my eyes. NOBODY do business with this guy.

    Did you ever get a phone number? I would suggest calling the seller directly and seeing what the issue is.

    Trust me, that's been done. I wouldn't be making these claims if I wasn't certain. Everybody provided with a phone number has been provided with one that doesn't work, and he certainly doesn't call anybody when requested.

    It turns out that FedEx fucked up and instead of sending my guitar back to me like they said they would, they delivered it to the guy. This makes me sick. Anybody have any advice on this one?

    Legal action, dude. Call the cops and give them the story and his address.

    I guess a good lesson to come from this is to use an escrow service (not that I'm implying that this is in any way your fault) for high dollar items like this.
