Hey everyone. I'm still quite new here, with only a few posts, but I must say that from what I saw of the site, there's a great community here, something which is unfortunately rare nowadays. I'm interested in your opinion about a bit of an awkward situation that happened/is still happening to me in connection with engage757, whom I guess most of you know better than I do. I stumbled into this site back in December when I was looking to buy my first 7-string. I found a thread by engage that had an Ibanez which looked just perfect, so I contacted him - he seemed like a cool guy, and we concluded the deal pretty quickly. I sent him all the money in advance, including a hefty shipping cost, but he promised that if there's anything left over, he'll send it back, so I was like OK, there's an ocean between us, who knows how much they charge for it? The first few times when I asked him later about the shipping cost after he sent the guitar, he came up with an excuse for why he couldn't tell yet. After that, he evaded answering this particular question at all. It all started to seem a little eerie after a while, so I asked him to be honest with me. He then wrote me a mail in which he said how I shouldn't question his honesty, how he went way beyond by disassembling the guitar and sending it as a gift (for which I thanked him properly earlier), he was just about to move, and so on. I thought maybe I was impatient and a bit harsh, so I apologized. He didn't reply. The guitar arrived (it is a fine axe BTW, it was packed carefully, and didn't have a scratch on it - I love it), and I saw the papers that came with it. As it turned out, the shipping cost was less than what I sent. I waited for a while, but got no word from engage. Later I sent him two further mails (not even mentioning this whole money business in the first one), and I waited again. Didn't receive an answer. Over a week ago, I sent him a polite PM here, still not mentioning the shipping thing, just trying to contact him. More than a month had passed since my last mail. By this point, I wasn't surprised when I got no answer. I did not want to make this public, but I was out of options, so I sent him a negative iTrader feedback, thinking maybe that would make him at least answer me. The only thing I got was a negative comment on my feedback about how I harassed(!) and threatened (wtf?) him over shipping costs I allegedly already agreed to (I didn't, but I guess that's obvious from what I wrote so far). So I opened this thread. I guess engage himself will pop by, telling his version of the story, which is fine by me. I can prove my point through screenshots and photos if needed. I personally don't want any beef with him, I just wish to resolve this situation peacefully. Please share your thoughts if you'd like to.
