I HATE to post this but the owner of rcCHUTE of Sherwood Oregon, James Thomas, is not replying to ANY of my status requests.
History:
Dec 15: 2012 Placed order at rcCHUTE.com
Dec 16, Jan 3 & 8: sent emails to rc.jumpinjack@gmail.com
Jan 11: contacted James by Phone,702-675-1249, and he said he would refund the $195 paid.
Jan 15 & 30: sent more emails; NO REPLY
Jan 30 thru Feb 20: called 8 times and sent more emails. AGAIN NO REPLY

When I spoke to James on Jan 11, he advised he was behind due to personal problems and would refund the $195. On the phone he sounded like a good guy and upstanding fellow.

Does anyone know if he is OK and still in business?

The web site, rcCHUTE.com, is still active; as it was on Dec 15, when the order was placed.

Thanks in advance for any info you might have on Jim.

This hobby is WAY too expensive!!

I hate to hear this and it is becoming more common all the time. It is better to stick to the proven web sites that have been around for awhile until the new site is a proven entity.

I wouldn't deal with a business that had an owner who corresponding with hotmail, gmail, google mail....red flag.

Screw him. Call the police in his town and file a report. If you paid by paypal, file a dispute and get your cash back. If you paid with Visa, file a claim and let them invesitgate as well. Don't deal with him from here on out.

Call the cops...It's fraud.

I literally never use the word literally right.

I don't know where he lives now. I believe he was moving when I got him on the phone Jan 11.

Name is James Thomas, URL is rcChute.com, email is rc.jumpinjack@gmail.com, Cell Phone is 702-675-1249, web site ID's location as Sherwood, Oregon.

Anyone have dealings with Jim.

I'd like to get his address so I can send a letter.

Thanks in advance for any information you can share.

Update on RCchute: Got in contact with Jim today, Feb 28, 2013
I contacted Jim by phone today and he sys he has been involved in a move the last 2 months and has not done much on the business or emails. He appologized and said he'd review the orders and get mine out in a week.

I knew after talking to him that he was involved in some life altering event that took up his time from the business.

I'm looking forward to getting the RC Parachute.

I would have filed a claim with my CC company already. It's unethical (and may be illegal) to charge your credit card until the items are ready to ship.
