It's enough to send chills down ones spine. I would wager that he did not make that payment at all.

And, having bought many things from Mafioso I can testify to his unimpeachable integrity. He also routinely delivers far beyond expectations.

I think so too. If his bank is not the author of the 'document', some interesting possibilities regarding the man's intentions arise. I'm not sure about the law here but in the US, there's something like mail fraud. If the doc is a fake and sent to entice me to send the 401, pending payment, I'm not sure if our electronic communications act covers this kind of thing.

I just think it was a breathtaking nerve to try what I suspect and then still have the gall to slag me off with a forum mod.

I can just hope that my bank will stay on the case and that they will be able to get some kind of answers from this person's bank regarding the authenticity of what he sent.

Cheers

I am happy to also vouch for Gert (gbyleveldt) in the "recommended seller" category.

Another tip, obvious I know, but it saves unecesssary trips...ask for good / close-up photographs of items you are interested in.

I've recently sold to and bought from "Metalmilitia" once again.  A fine, upstanding, no-nonsense guy.  Always a pleasure to deal with someone who's keen to help. Thanks "Metalmilitia"

I have recently bought some speakers from Rakabos and I can recommend him highly.  Easy to deal with and very accommodating.  A good experience overall.

I'm glad to see that you are pushing for results and explanations, rather than just being happy you didn't lose the 401 and leaving the matter at that.

I would like to commend and thank dotVIBE (Eric).
The Marantz PM-84 I bought did not satisfy my taste and he had no issue giving me a full refund on the unit.

Just shows the integrity of the members on this forum.

I bought a NAD CD player from PAPPA3, we missed each other on phone calls on several occasions, so never actually spoke to each other, yet everything went smooth and I'm very happy with the CD player.   :)

Thanks
Leon

First time I buy something directly from a forum member, I can honestly recommend Doogle(Barry). Very nice and interesting guy with a great passion for the hobby.

Ps, his speakers(whole system rather) is even nicer! Haha! Absolutely worth just going there.
Thanx for having us.
