I did my part but he kept coming up with excuses on why he couldn't send me the scan copy. He finally sent me a blank .gif the next day!?!?! I stayed on top of him and after delay after delay I had the post office stop delivery just in time. All he had do was give me the MO receipt scan or even the numbers so I could check on the MO and he couldn't do so over the course of 2 1/2 days. Turns out he never sent it because it should have arrived before he could cancel it and I never got it. I mainly lurk around here and I sent a note of warning to UN Inspector, but his deal seemed to work out alright so I let it go and chalked it up to lessons learned. I think my story would have turned out similar if I hadn't been able to stop the delivery. BTW, are you sure you are dealing with the right person. I dug deeper and realized too late I was NOT dealing with Jeff Newport but some guy named Jeremy Oliver "a friend of Jeff's brother". I think things are not always as they seem.
matt u didnt even wait 2 days before u freaked out and got the item sent back, which i said i was going to refuse it anyway, it takes awhile sometimes for online tracking to show up. no harm no foul. neither one of us are out anything.
also my current deal with lawson, is alright, he offered a counter deal, which im thinking about, if i dont do it, his lappy is packed and will be waiting for ups to pick it up. hell i will even post pics of all that also, I have no time right now because of 2 events that happend in the past 2 weeks,.so between those and kids wife etc.. im really stressed.
