Previous post of this where under WTB 9300 under Vector02. Thats my buddy who origonaly posted for me. This is all under the intentions of buying a 9300 and living in bliss. Thinking I would have a laptop by now I registered in hopes to receive one by now but thats why we are here right now.
OK.....here are the emails that set everything up.
Just to let you know....Im Jeff.....and Shawn is the seller.
I've got a spare 9300 for sale/trade,
Pentium M 1.6
1gb ram (512 x 2)
256 6800 go video
I'll consider anything entertaining as a trade, prefferably PSP, pocket PC, ipod or the like.
What do you want for it? I will offer 1200 shipped. Let me know if
thats good for you.
That is actually a little higher than I thought I could get, with shipping it sounds fair to me. What payment method do you prefer? Where are you located?
Yeah....I was just thinking thats a little high. What hd do you have.
I am down anyways. You think you could get me 2 day on that shipping?
I can send you a money order tomorrow next day.
Some pics would be great too.
Sorry...call me if you get a chance at 555-555-5555 or I can call you.
Let me know
To be honest, I feel 1200 is just a bit too high for it not to be absolutely new, I'd feel more comfortable at 1100. (just don't want to feel bad later) It has the 6 cell battery and a/c power supply.
I can't ship today, I could possibly go out of my way later this week and ship it (I do have to ship some dvd's tomorrow) I will need at least half payment before shipping. I can also get some pics later this week for sure.
I have paypal if you're in a rush but a money order is fine too.
Let me know what you think,
I will send you paypal payment of 575 today if you can ship it
overnight this week. 50 bucks for the rush and shipping on it. It is
brand new too. Tight.....we will need to transfer warrenty info
Sounds good to me, Jeff. This is my main paypal, I will email confirmation of payment when recieved.
Payment sent bro. I know its used but are there any scratches and how
long of a warrenty do you have?
Recieved, NO scratches or blemishes. 2 years extended, let me know if you have any more Q's!
Yeah....whats your # so I can call you. Just for my peace of mind.
Due to bad past experiences with fraud, I do not give out personal info. (I was cleaned out, my bank and paypal, long story). Not that it would help, I work such long hours I doubt you'd be up once I got home! Let me know if there is something else I can do.
Then call me please! I dont care what time you get off. This is just
nerve racking sents its not through ebay ya know. Besides.....Im not
asking for you CC # or SS # so your really not at risk for fraud. You
can even #66 me and call me caller unknown. I really dont care. At
this point I am the one who has extended myself buy paying you alot of
cash so please call me at 555-555-5555. Thats my personal cell phone
so you can get me anytime.
Thanks alot Shawn,
p.s. You will be able to ship overnight tomorrow right?
Calm down! You're freakin out! Besides the fact that I've been preached at by my lawyer and bank for the ways I like to do business (online) I truly dislike using a phone. I know this may sound weird (it usually does) but that's just me and I will not apologize or give a reason for it. (well, I do have anxiety) I would like to ask you what in the world talking to me will do?
I will ship as soon as I get a chance to pick it up, and I will send the tracking #. Have a beer brother!
Sorry to "freak out" on you buddy and I will have me a beer. Just
excited about getting it. Are you gonna get a chance to pick it up and
ship tomorrow? Also, when this is all said and done how do you suppose
we transfer the warrenty info over to me?
Im drinkin 2 for ya.
Hole day goes by with no responce.
Hey buddy....whats the update?
Im kinda in the dark on when you are shipping it because you never
told me when your gonna do it. Said you had some DVDs to ship but
thats it. Sents this is our only form of commuication it would be
great if you could respond quickly. If I seem jumpy its because I am.
We email back and forth 17 times on monday but today on tuesday I get
no email at all. Maybe your just busy but please take the time to let
me know whats going on.
Drinkin some beers,
Another day goes by
I was off work Monday and had a pc at my disposal the whole day, please relax. I need to drive up to the lake to pick up the notebook (along with a Nikon), I'm hoping to use my next day off to do so. I will keep you updated, I'm off to lunch finally...
BTW, there is an email below I didn't ever recieve, that's a little wierd.
Thx for the reply. My nerves are calm now. Sorry to keep asking
though. When is your next day off?
You know if your gonna beable to ship it so I can get it before the
weekend? Come on now...throw me a bone here.
Im in tx...where are you again?
I'm trying my best, I'm over in Georgia. Is the weather as bad as it is here, over there?
Weather is fine considering we had a hurricane right on the coast.
Come on now bro. Just let me know when you getting off work, when you
think you can ship it, if you'll get it to me before this weekend. I
swear I will stop asking questions if you just answer that.
Three days go by.
Keep in mind he was suppost to ship it overnight and he as given me NO clue on when he was gonna ship it.
Uhhhhhhh......are you there? Its sunday and I guess your gonna ship
tomorrow. Let me know about that tracking info.
Gave him 575.00 on Monday...and Sunday now...he still hasnt shipped.
And so on.....
Sorry I didn't catch this before, I'm hoping to get it out this week, let me know if you have any other questions.
Come on now bud.....you know Im being patient. In a week you havent
been able to get to the lake house to pick it up. All I want to know
is when your next day is off so I can know when you might beable to
Put down a case and a half,
On the other hand bro......if you cant ship it quick like. I just want
my money back. I could of ordered from Dell and got it by now. I know
you check your mail so just let me know what you want to do.
I can ship it this weekend but you're making me nervous acting so anxious to get it without full payment... I'm not sure If I can ship it without full payment, sorry. Something just doesn't feel right, I hope you're not up to no good! Maybe it's just my paranoia, talk to you soon.
Really Shawn...If I would have know you where gonna hold on to it for
over a week before shipping I would have gone with some one else. I
feel your legit by looking at your paypal creditials. You've been with
paypal for 4+ years, you have 11 verifiyed happy buyers, but for some
reason you are just dragging your feet. You actually think Im gonna
send you more money after you have held on to 575.00 of my cash for
over a week with out shipping the Dell 9300. And really...whats the
point in paying 50.00 for overnight shippin when you cant get it off
until a week and a half later? Remember...you saw my post on
notebookforums....I didnt look for you, you emailed me with the offer.
Then I promply payed you in good faith you could ship soon. Really you
look like the shady one here. Dude....this is the biggest puchase I
have ever made over the net. I have actually lost sleep over this. You
only reply to your email every 2-3 days. Do you have pics? Where in
Georgia do you live? When are you getting off to ship it? Did you get
it from your lake house along with your camera? You have not been able
to answer ANY of my questions in multiple emails. Here is the deal. No
I will not send you anymore money for obvious reasons. Either ship the
item on or by fri the 29th of July or I expect a full refund of the
575.00. I've got a hundred other folks that would love to sell me
there 9300 in a timely manner.
If you think im not legit .....how do you think it makes me feel when
you are scared to give your personal phone number out because you got
"cleaned out" once. What does that have to do with me? Im sorry you're
paranoid but Im REALLY paranoid with you. Feel free to call me at
555-555-5555. I wont bite and I wont steal your identity.
The only other option we have at this point is to work it out through
www.escrow.com. You send them the laptop...I send them payment and we
receive everything through them so both parties are secured.
If you have any question DONT hesitate to ask because I respond back
to my email in a very quick manner. If you need some one to verify my
legitimacy on notebookforums PM Vector02! By the way....are you even a
member of notebookforums?
At this point I was furious and I just decided to put a claim on his paypal account. He was not repsonding so I had to do some research to get his other email but I did and these are his responses.

Just refund the full amount to me and I will pull the hold off your account.
575.00 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tell paypal that you want to send the
money back to me so they will let you use your account.
That's the problem, I can't use my paypal account nor do I have enough money in there for the refund. (I'm sure paypal has informed you?)
I don't know what needs to be done but you did it and I expect you to fix it quickly. After I can use my account again we'll work something out to your satisfaction, you have my word. (you've seen my paypal past, I'M NOT DISHONEST) and I didn't do anything for you to cause me such problems, this medicine is NOT a joking manner...
If you want the hold taken off I want either my cash or the laptop
tomorrow morning. The ball is in your court. You can easily remedy
this situation by shipping the laptop over night. As soon as I power
it on I will email you on it and unlock your account. Whats it gonna
be. I cant believe you already spent the money. You need to respond to
paypal to get the ball rolling.
Im drinkin a beer in peace now,
Yes, I spent the money, that's the only reason I would sell it, I've got so many bills right now I can't even buy groceries bro, nothing shady about that. Put money IN my paypal? I thought I explained to you I need the little amount that's in there to buy medicine... I have $0 to put in and don't have a paycheck coming for at least a week. Even If I could get the money it would take 4-5 days for paypal to transfer it and I DO NOT have even 1 day, I hope you're not joking about my mother being ok because I assure you she won't be if I don't get her this medication.
I can't respond to paypal, it doesn't give me but 2 options, both which I can't do today or even this week.
I'm not sure what the hold is going to do for you, all it's doing is putting me in a very bad situation. I need you to be mature about this and take care of the major headache you've caused. And I DON'T have time to be checking my email like this, you've forced me to. I won't be able to check again for at least an hour...
Send the laptop overnight and this will be all over. Or do you even
have a laptop?
Jeff, you are hands down the most rude person I've ever had a transaction with, ever. I'm sorry to say that out of hundreds of transactions and years of experience I've never had the slightest problem and you seem to have fifty...
I'm not sure you understand though, I need the hold off today, you're being completely unreasonable. Do you realize that if I issue a refund, all you will get is $112? That beer still peaceful meow?
Like I asked you before, what does the hold do for you? I need that little bit of cash now and the first chance I'll have to ship is Saturday, and when I do ship it you will know. I will also expect full payment upon satisfaction, ofcourse.
The hold will come off when I get the laptop. Not a second before. If
you need the money that bad you should of shipped the laptop last week
and you would have another 575.00 of my hard earned money. You
shouldnt of started spending the money. Its not even yours to spend
until I get the laptop. I have held up my end of the bargin to the T
so get the laptop here fast and thats the only way your gonna touch
that paypal account. Besides....we can do this the hardway if you
like. I can wait it out cause paypal will get me my money and leave
you with a negative balance or you can solve this the easy way.
There's no need for your immature threats, I'll find a way to get the medication until I get a chance to pick up the lap and ship. Just make sure you have the money, I'm only giving you a day after delivery.
kewl with me. I will have you the money as soon as I get it. That is my word.
Thanks, that makes me feel a little better. I'll be in touch this weekend.
Ya know what.....after all you have put me threw I just want the money
back. No laptop cause I really dont trust you. Really....whos to say
you'll send me jacked up laptop...scratched up.....not working...not
even the right model...who knows. I do know that I can get a new one
with the money back. May takes some time but its all good. I can wait
it out. So go ahead and respond back to paypal whenever you get a
chance telling them I just want my money back cause thats what I told
Have a great day,
Hello...anyone there......please respond back to paypal so we can get
this ball rollin. Please dont drag this on. You've made it hard enough
Then 5 days later I get this email.
I just got to ship today, and I noticed you didn't have a confirmed address... I believe that puts me at risk even further so I hope you do have good intentions. If it is anything other than what was agreed on, I'll gladly take it back and give you a refund.
Fedex signature ground: trackin number
I hope we can come out of this on a positive note, I really don't like when there is a problem, it effects my day to day routine. But I do feel you were a rash with your actions, I truly do not have time to spend on the computer every day, it's gotten to the point where my days run together and I even miss weekends so next time try to contact the person before you freeze their account.
Anyways, please take care of the paypal problem the same day, I could really use that money. BTW, I'll go ahead and reply now that I can. (I wish they gave another option than they do, I don't like that days have passed and I couldn't say anything due to the limited choices)
Ok.....you shipped ground? I payed you to ship overnight! Didnt I make
that very clear. Oh well......when it gets here I am going to document
the laptop with fedex present and digital camera so everything is
square. After I have checked the laptop to the specs I have layed out
and everything is good to go then I will inform paypal of my
satisfaction. If the laptop is not exactly how it should be I will
ship back and inform paypal that I still want my money back.
You should be shipping me a
1.6 Pent M
1 gig RAM
WXVGA truelife screen
6800 go nvidia
I really hope this works out bro,
OK ...at this point....what the hell do I do. Do I ship it back without opening it or do I open it and see what it is knowing it might be a pile of CRAP. I can document it with a digi camera knowing that if its not how it was discribed paypal will probly still back me in getting my money back.
