Buyer done a runner...what to do?

Someone bought from me on this thread http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/498229/fs-ps3-games-inc-fifa-and-brand-new

Paid £3 upfront...sent item via recorded...then meant to be £3 paid on arrival. (yes i know its not a huge amount but its not the point)

The item has arrived but still no payment. The item was sent on 13th Oct.

Tried contacting them on the thread and also by private message but when I send a pm it says the user has decided they don't want to be contacted by pm.

How can this be allowed on this site as a lot of trade is done via pm and allowing users to not receive pms is an easy escape route.

I just wondered what people would do? I dont know whether to give negative feedback as the person may just be on holiday or hospital etc (doesnt look like theyve used the site since they bought from me) and then they will leave counter negative feedback, which will be unfair and wont look good for me.

Other users have traded with the user but with no problems!

What to do?

No gerb I know your reading isn't the best as you are still in 6th form so excused for being a moron...read the op and I've already said it's not about the money.

Good plan...my £100 quidco from o2 today should cover the cost. Money is not an issue when it comes to giving pain.

What lesson? To trust no one.

No trades would go on if that was the case and having no feedback, people with more always want you to post first.

Done that with other users with no problems.

Aside from all the non-help m8... id personally give it a little longer, at least until they have logged in next. If after that they still have not paid what is owed (no matter how much it is coz thats not the point) id get in contact with a mod to PM the buyer. Banning them would be last resort so lets hope they are just away for a few days or something.

You should have followed the fs/ft trading advice in order to continue discussions when the member might not be available on this forum to take your PM. We can't stress this enough.

Yeah was thinking that...don't wanna be too hasty.

Just doesn't look like they will ever log in again.

Have some rep for the help and for the fact I feel sorry for you as a Pompey fan :)

understood but it's just as easy to ignore a phone call or email or death threat...what other options are there other than that?

Report your thread and cut out the last piece of nonsense with regards to threats. That's an incredibly silly statement to make.
