This is not a complant. I just need to contact this guy. I posted here for maximum veiws (didn't know where else to).

I want to know if anyone knows "piranhafreak" personally. Or, has someway to get ahold of him besides PM's and email, maybe a phone number (they could call). Reason being....I PP'd him some money for a heli Weds. Jan 6th, (more than just a few bucks)....he said he might not get it in the mail untill Fri. Jan.8th. and would send me a tracking number. He PM'd me Sat.Jan.9th and said he hadn't been feeling well and would get it in the mail that day, Sat. That was the last I heard from him. I have sent him PM's that have gone unread...emails (I don't know if they were read or not....and I've heard nothing. there has been no activity (that I can find) since the morning of the 9th on here,HF,or RCG.

I am trying to find out from someone (maybe a family member for example) if he's out of town, in the hospital, deceased, or whatever. And if my purchase made it to the Post office. I realize it hasn't had time to get here yet.

He has quite alot of "positive" feedback on here. I can not find "anything" to the contrary. So, I tend to beleive something is wrong, and that I didn't get burned. Not knowing is making me a little crazy.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Bill

I feel yer pain, bro-

I finally got what I ordered and hope you do too; but I agree it's exasperating as hell when sellers take your money and don't communicate. Fortunately what I pd wasn't a large sum, like for a heli.

Anything over a pair of used blades, and I insist on speaking to the buyer and having his phone no.

Best of luck for a good outcome.

Man, that is a major +1 !!!

I think I have bought/sold from-to some good guys on here, but when there is
little to no communication, I have no desire to deal w. them again!

A simple acknowledgement from buyer/seller during the process goes
a looong way!

Gologo, you nailed it exactly.

Flyextreme, we're with ya, bud. I and I'm sure others will keep our eyes peeled (btw, I sent you a pm with some ideas).

What REALLY kills me is: you got a pm in to a seller; you can see he's online, cuz it says "Online Now"; it's flashing a big red "PM" on the home screen, and they won't even open the freakin pm????!!!!

I mean, WTF's up with that??? Good luck bro we're with ya

How can this guy have so much "positive" feedback. Did he just start doing this to people. I know things happen...but,this just feels funny. I think/hope I will get my heli (I don't even really want it at this point) it's sorta tanted...isn't it supposed to bring you pleasure? I promise that my feedback for this guy will be honest.

And what's worse is....I didn't even heed my own rule of talking on the phone before a purchase this big...that's my bad. I was in a hurry to make the buy before I went to work that day.

I do have his phone number now though..

Peace out, Bill

I finallt contacted "piranhafreak"
I finally got in touch with "piranhafreak" by phone. I believe his story. I won't go into much detail, but at this point, I'm satisfied he's an honest guy that just had string of things going on that kept him from contacting me...one thing being...his internet is down. And, some other situations that prevented him from being able to use another computer to contact me.

I have to assume "some" resposibility by not getting a phone number before the purchase...."don't make a big purchase in a hurry"...like while trying to leave the house to get to work on time.

I would like to believe I'm "not" gullible...just fair in giving him the benefit of the doubt. This incident did seem to be "out of caracter" for this guy.

Peace-out, Bill

Were my internet down so I couldn't email/pm, I'd go to a library- but whatever. The proof will be in the pudding... hope what you get meets your expectations.

They still have those?

Bet they don't use the old card file using the Dewey Decimal System.

Glad you got it worked out, Flyextreme.

Well just to clear everything up ill post this i did speak to Flyextreme and i am %100 percent to blame i had a series of event left one job,Both my father and i were in the hospital,wifes grand mother died,I started a new job,intertnet has been down ect really no lie any way i know there is still no excuse for shipping late but the heli was shipped wensday. I also gave a partial refund of $20 for the inconvience was not asked i just felt it was the least i could do So heli is shipped with refund and if that doesnt satisfy Flyextreme i will do what ever needed to make this right as i told him on the phone so i do take full blame but the heli has been sent priorty mail hope that clears anything up so that i can still sell in the future but if this messed that up i understand as well but so far my feedback speaks for its self

Thanks and i apoligize to anyone that i have inconvienced

Chris

P.S. JUST AN UPDATE TO ALL HELI WAS RECIVED AND BUYER IS HAPPY THANKS

CHRIS

Well stuff does happen and everybody should realize that and when you can't contact a seller it makes the buyer a little worried but it seems like you both have kept a level head about it and you have tried to explained what happened and have tried to make up for it so I say it should be all good now.Wishing you some better luck piranhafreak sounds like you need it

Fly it ! Crash it ! Rebuild it ! Repeat as needed !! Everett
