    What happened is:I posted that I'd take his CRK Umnamzaan FS on the 29th of August and agreed to sell to me.So the next day,I sent him a MO (from the Post Office) for $310 and it get there by the end of the week(Sept 4).On the 5th, he tells me that he's waiting for my MO to clear - I guess he didn't cash it at the post office and instead deposited it.While waiting for the MO to clear,I send him a few emails to make sure the pivot is tighten before he ships.I don't hear from him until the 10th,Saturday when he emails me that he doesn't have work today and is going to the PO.

    To Cut to the Chase,I've tried emailing him last night and a month ago, and have yet to get a response from him as to whether it shipped or not.If did get shipped, it should of arrived by now in Canada and if it was seized I didn't get a Customs notice in the mail yet.

    At the Present moment,It seems like I got scammed.??? I wouldn't of dealt with him if he had a negative feedback rating.His profile says that his last visit was 09-18-2011 08:33 AM. Of all the people,I've dealt with on bladeforums I've never have experienced this lack of communication.

    Does anybody,know how I can contact him?

    You are jumping the gun a bit on how long it can take to clear customs. I have, in the last month, had a package from New York to Canada in under a week, while I this week got a package sent almost 5 weeks ago from Texas long before the new York package was sent. The lack of communication is concerning however.


    I just re-read your post and would like some clarification. Did he say he sent it Oct 10, or did you mean Sept 10? Sept 10 changes things.

    CLAK,Not Oct 10 But Sept 10.

    Here's what he exactly wrote,"Hello sir, no work today and IM heading to the PO.. I will have all ur info later..."

    I remember that Umnun, and the lack of communication from the seller. Don't know if this matters, but he had posted it before at a higher asking price and had several "I'll take it's", even a few in his user profile.

    I was just looking at his FS posts for the umnumzaan and was surprised that Matt had it FS for over 2 1/2 months before agreeing to sell it to me.

    In some of his post in the threads,he mentions not doing well financially and another, moving. Then there's him being really insistent on MO only payment.Seems he really needed dough fast also,when I was sending out the MO he kind of want me to send it priority or express next day;Kind of something like that.

    Take a look at his profile too, according to his visitor messages he had other buyers willing to pay a higher asking price.

    The lack of any pics is a little worrisome and the fact he hasnt logged on here for a month. Hope he didnt decide to make
    a few bucks before he skipped out of this place for good.

    I worry when they can't spell, it's seems like a small detail, but it just seems to me that when someone doesn't care about something as simple as spelling they tend not to care about other things too and they tend to have a lack of integrity. I hope you get your knife.

    What about run-on sentences? Do they provide any indication of integrity, or lack thereof?

    Guys, lets not resort to personally attacking him but I sure hope there's a reasonable explanation.Again,I wouldn't a dealt with Matt if I thought it would end badly.He had 41 transactions of them a 100% feedback rating, and with some of the better known members than myself.

    So it doesn't really sound like him to leave me out in the cold.

    Check my mailbox again this week hoping it would arrive but it hasn't.Same goes for my email,no response.Even called his cell phone but got a person which claimed not to be Matt so I'm not sure if he trying to avoid me or what.Also tried his home phone but that has been disconnected.

    right now,It sure seems like he just took my money and skipped town.

    A bump for this thread because it hasn't been resolved. Matt (trimcut123) was on BFs as recently as 01-05-12, although it doesnt' appear that he posted or anything. He probably checked his PMs. Also, my guess is that Matt was & is financially strapped. However, that is no excuse. I admittedly, had good transactions with Matt, but I know that that hasn't always been the case with others.

    Im sorry to hear this. Shortly after recieving your funds and mailing out your knife with DC Number I had moved out of state. IT was not about the money. I gave you a abetter deal than was offered by others, I was simply changing jobs and getting ready to move. I was without computer or internet for a while, as well as changing phone plans a few months later. I now have a different working email with my wife and have moved out of state. I hope you had recieved your knife at some point. I have not ever had a deal gone wrong and have the rep to show. Please tell me you have recieved it. Im sorry i hadnt got on here sooner to contact you. Since then Ive relocated, married changed careers had a baby girl. And have been so busy raising a family and saving for a house. Once again hope everything is resolved and glad to be able to check back in, hello to all... Till next time . I am working out of town from the fam for the next week. If im able I will check in then. I hope the Post system has taken care of this by now. Ive never came remotely close to a problem like this .
    Sincerely
    Matt Bodnar
