Well what seemed to be a simple trade turned into a nightmare.
Mastersonics posted up looking to trade his tow mirrors for standard mirrors.
Here is the thread.
In post number 25 you can see he says deal pending, and the next post is from the forum member who also sent him mirrors.
After making tentative deal on the foum me and Charles Spoke on the phone Monday the week of the trade. I believe this was August 12th. I remember this because I was going away on vacation August 17th. Well Anyways we made the deal Monday, and given my busy work schedule I did not get them out until Friday but not an issue. Well apparently that wed he made a deal with [MENTION=131084]RajunCajun84[/MENTION] for the same swap. Difference was his mirrors had white caps vs my black and Charles wanted them more so he went back on our deal without saying anything. Had he said anything I could have not shipped mine out.
Well my plan was this. I see a guy wanting to trade tow mirrors for regular mirrors. I actually have tow mirrors on my truck but had a friend who wanted them. As I was going away for a week come the end of that week I figured I could send my stock mirrors to Charles, give my tow mirrors to my buddy that week so he could use them for a haul, and then when I got back from vacation I would have the new tow mirrors waiting. It was too good to be true apparently.
Charles traded with the other gentlemen and kept telling me he never got my mirrors. I was bothered by this and after a little research into the post office it turns out he wasn't trying to screw me (other than the initial deal gone wrong) the mirrors were at the post office. He was not home so the PO kept them and left a notice. They are still there today in fact.
Well I told charles this and he told me that I was full of BS and my story had changed etc etc.
Well no it hadn't. I was back home and had to buy new tow mirrors as my swap failed miserably. The only changes in the story were the fact that the deal I made with him trying to help him out, which conviently helped me as well went wrong and I was simply left down the $60 I paid to priority mail them with insurance to PR
. With how apologetic Charles was the first day the this all came up I thought he would be kind enough to pay for these, he wasn't but o well. We argued and nothing was accomplished.
I have since then tried asking Charles to simply refund me my $60 and send the mirrors back. At first it appeared as we would do this but then he had no desire to pay me the shipping back but I told him I was done and just send them back so I can move on. He said he was done too and ok. Gota love people being mad at you, because you are mad they can't stand up to their word and created this mess. Well two weeks later still no mirrors and I have texted charles the last few days asking if my mirrors are coming back or not.
He finally responds today saying this will be our last communication and to listen up because he never got my mirrors.
This is true, you never got them. But I have made you well away they are sitting at the PO with your name on them and all you need to do is go pick them up and send them back. But he has refused to do so.
I have been rather impatient throughout the whole process but there should never have been a issue.
This is what happens when you make two trades or 1 set of mirrors: Solution... only make 1 honest trade.
What a waste of my time but I hope nobody does business with this guy. Zero sense of self responsibility or respect.
