    I’m still awaiting payment from a member of the V8 Buick forum. Sold him some 1969 rear marker lights outside of eBay, had to because I wasn’t set up to ship to Australia. The guy contacted me and was happy to pay the shipping and price. I shipped promptly via USPS and supplied him with tracking info and the cost of shipping. After that communication has been very quiet. It’s shameful that someone would do that to another enthusiast. His name is Greg Naris of Dolls Point Australia, if anyone knows him please let him know he has unfinished business. His user name looks to be greg123, beware selling. Thanks!!

    He ran me around in circles on a set of 67 scoops I had. Asked for any that were broken, sent him pics, then he Ghosted me. Weeks later he PM'd saying he wanted them, then didn't hear from him, then he replied he couldn't buy them. Told him never to bother me again for parts. Told me he was in Sydney.

    Unless you know them personally and trust them, always get your money up front. MHO

    To me, the "contributor" designation with their user name, whatever the contribution level, designates someone who can be trusted.

    Oh wait, mine says that. Never mind.:rolleyes:

    Shipped over a week ago, tracking shows it was delivered last Wednesday. Just want to make sure the joker never finishes his project and nobody will deal with him.

    I know when I ship over seas it sometimes takes weeks to get there. Even though it says delivered.

    Sorry this happened to you. It's common practice to never ever ship something before payment has been sent. Paypal will refund their money if you never send the item, but nothing protects you from the reverse situation. Alternatively you can use ebay and just have them pay the cost.

    Had to make an international call. Left a message with a woman and within 5 minutes, I got paid. Just beware with this guy.

    I know, he originally won it on eBay. I wasn’t offering international shipping though, so I cancelled his order and relisted. Then he messaged me to send and I agreed if this next bid cycle didn’t come up with any bidders. Has a good eBay rating also.

    I got extremely lucky with my dealings on V8. I purchased some parts for my Wildcat from Tom Telesco, and was so pleased with what I received. I sent a cheque this week to Bill Burton for lifters and rods and received a message today that he has already sent the parts. I am so privileged on this site to be on this site and consider you all my friends. Thank you all!

    Some of us, hell MOST of us, in Australia, New Zealand and elsewhere are stand-up payers and contributors.
    I've had nothing but great dealings with members here, and all have been happy to ship to me. Which I am truly grateful for. Let's not kill every kangaroo just cos one gave ya a kick in the nuts!!

    Sorry didn’t mean to offend anybody but there are members here that prefer not to ship overseas or Canada.
