Give it until 1, could still turn up yet.

Did you pay a lot for it?

there is a postal strike in certain parts of the country mate so it might be delayed a bit.

Unless it was Saturday delivery paid for it will probably turn up on Monday - you have to another premium for next day delivery on a Saturday

to send something on friday and expect it to arrive saturday is wishful thinking, it costs an extra £5 or something to guarantee it for saturday

An extra £2.20.

If he only said he would "try and post on friday", I'm not sure why you are getting so worried so soon?

Special Delivery on a Friday would arrive on a Monday, not Saturday. Unless you pay for Special Delivery with Saturday Delivery.

I'd be a bit upset if I told someone I'd try and post Friday and then at 11am on Saturday they were writing on forums about me being a possible scammer..... maybe you should remove his username from post #7 until you know?

+1, you haven't made allowances for any possible delays - I would be upset if you named me as a potential dodgy seller at 11.30 in the morning the day after I said I would try and post it!
Just maybe they haven't even been online today to see your emails, it's Saturday morning

Maybe, more likely you didn't want to draw attention to the fact you were advertising a different car stereo here and there at the same time, against the rules of both sites.

"This is my car cd player for sale,selling as im getting a new car which already has a stereo in it." Also sounds a bit fishy don't you think, saying that and buying a new car stereo on the same day?

I would stop digging now, before the sides of the hole fall in around you.. :)

Will update later to see if stereo turned up, still seems like the seller is messing me about, I have asked for the tracking number and all he says is that he can't get to it at the
moment,I wonder if he sent it at all

or maybe he is at work and its at home or at home and its at work?
its not due till 1, give him a chance
after that by all means say he's messed you about but it isn't even late yet
#25
So here is a update, only just now got the tracking number and it's not working, I them emailed the seller who then told me he called parcel force and they said there had been a mix up with the delivery, I'm betting he didn't post it untill today, would it be worth me calling parcel force myself??

If its been sent by Parcelforce and you have paid for Special Delivery, then i would have something to say about that

It wouldn't hurt

However if its the thread I read then he just said 'I will post ASAP'
You also said earlier he said he would try to post Friday, if he didn't actually say he would post friday then i think you are being unfair

Why don't you post a dispute over there if you are that worried about it?
#29
Think I will stick to eBay as I have 100% with over 300 feedbacks, also my feedback is good on here, guess you can't trust everyone !

I 100 % agree with tinks ......

If it's this thread, the guy has publically posted the tracking number in the thread, and said it's been posted today

http://www.avforums.com/forums/electrical-goods-classified-adverts/1064741-sale-pioneer-deh-p6800mp.html

It should be with you tomorrow, which is only one day later than you'd have received it if he had posted on Friday. Hardly looks like a scammer to me :?

TBH, I'm surprised that you haven't been pulled up for trying to deal via PM, going by posts #6, and #13 :roll:

Yet again another member who posts on a public forum and when he doesn't like the replies decides he is still right.

Have you told the person you bought off you started this thread and as good as told everyone on here that he had ripped you off, including naming him before you edited the thread?

Tinks advice was good, just because you didn't like it doesn't make it less so.
