Default How soon is too soon to think you've been conned?

I purchased a rear deck lid off of a rj member and since he has recieved payment I've recieved no more messages or replies. Maybe something has kept him from the computer. I don't know. I don't want to jump to any conclusions too soon but how much time should I allow to pass before I become upset.

I would expect a typically reputable seller to keep good contact, provide info about shipping costs and insurance and make sure that delivery is confirmed. At a minimum to reduce liability.

Failure to respond is indeed a red flag, and concern is warranted. I would recommend websearching the seller's name, phone number etc to see if anything is out there on him. Also full disclosure on this Forum could lead to additional information.

He has your money and thus a responsibility. Failure to keep contact should appropriately lead to action on your part.

Excuses are cheap and abundant these days.

I'm not real sure how to go about getting in contact. I really don't have much info. His rj username is SexyTransAm (#178796). That is the name used in the ad I purchased. Ad #1951051. I do have an email address
([email protected]) from one of his messages to send the money to him. I paid using paypal. I have never recived money only sent it a few times so not really sure how that part of it works. I just know I sent it to his email and paypal sent me an email that said it had cleared.

Whats up new guy? Give these guys some info to go on about how long it's been, and other specifics. Be specific in all your postings or you won't get a right or accurate response. JMO
