First thing you had to do is contact a administrator on this site, with the name of the seller and a link to the ad and contact paypal to chancel the payment. Do you contacted the seller about this and what was his reaction?

Most packages are sent with a tracking number, do you have that? It would be handy.

People how commit fraud will be banned. We will however give the seller the opportunity to correct his misstake or give the money back, if the seller does not respond, he will banned.

Ask your self, do you really want to be banned from this site for a few pounds?

As Paul says really.

Give the member a reasonable amount of time to either reply, send items or explain.

If no joy report member to admin on here & explain why.

Report email address to PayPal.

Then Ford Power will decide if the member should be banned & hopefully PayPal will sort your money.

after waiting for a month for a lockset i feel i have to name and shame the seller.

24vstav has been banned from Ford Power due to complaints from other members.

His for sale posts have also been deleted until the complaints have been resolved.

Anyone including the person in question can see this part of the site so detailing your actions is not going to help you resolve this Yorevol.

A proof of postage or tracking is the only way to prove something has been posted etc.
If it don't turn up then they refund you & then they claim from the parcel company or royal mail.

Wish you had this system a few years ago, would have saved me hundreds of pounds and the loss of my wiring loom, two instument panels, fuse boxes, yeah you know who you are, And, a lot of members on here think the sun shines out of your bottom, Alas, a lot of time has past but karma is a bitch, I will meet you at a show sometime.
Rant over.

Much water has gone under the bridge since all this happened to me, no point in dwelling too much on it, My car would have been on the road a few years ago had this person made good on his promises, alas he ripped me off hugely I it knocked me for six and I lost all interest in the car for at least two years after. But on the upside, that's me got back into it now and the XR's coming on a treat.
So, a lesson for all, there are people that will rip you off, be careful, use Paypal if you can, meet the person if possible, none of this would have worked for me as the person lives at the other end of the UK from me, I thought I had done my home work because everybody had nothing but good to say about the guy, maybe he just does not like Scotsmen? He taught me a valuable lesson. so if you see a Scotsman at one of the shows knocking the crap out of one of your well respected members, don't get involved, He had it coming!!
Merry Christmas,
George.

Yes all resolved, thank you Dave, have PMed you also.
Yes folks, sometimes things work out, sometimes don't, use Paypal and if the worst happens at least you'll get your cash back.
