    Help and advice needed: Scammed on hukd?

    I think I've just been scammed on hukd. I paid for killzone 2 on good friday and the seller promised to post item the next day on saturday. Unfortunately, it's Thursday today and I still have not received the game. I've dropped the seller a PM but they have not gotten back to me yet...what should I do?

    Smeagol when did you send the PM

    You are very quick to assume you have been scammed here, try not to make accusations, and go about the right mehtod of establishing what has happened...just advice, if you have been "scammed" it will be made clear but this member does look trust worthy and has good feedback myabe wait and contact a mod?

    A bit hasty really, have you phoned him, or emailed him?
    IF he sent Sat, could be a genuine reason he did not, unless he posted before 12, it probably would not of gone until Tues.
    Sat, it should of arrived Tues, if he posted Tues,should of been Weds, we are only talking a couple of days, could be a hold up, a backlog of post from Easter, a tad hasty to jump in shouting scam!

    Smeagol when did you send the PM

    It states in the thread that it is being sent 1st class recorded. PM the op and request the tracking no. you can then input it in the royal mail site and it will tell you what is going on.
    To be honest its still early days yet especially with bank holidays slowing the postal services

    the member has not been on since 14 so might not have got it, they have god feedback and there inbox might be full

    looking at the advice of other members, he may not have got your message, give it a couple more days, bank holidays can play havock with mail....chin up it will get sorted

    Just remember this is a holiday week and many people are busy doing things ,I would have waited till early next week before making any assumptions,

    remember the postal service is slightly slower as they have just caught up on Easter etc

    Since when?

    As it was Easter, if he sent saturday then good chance it wouldn't have picked up until Tuesday because of Bank Holiday. Then it can take 1-3 days for Royal Mail. Obviously you cant do much unless you have OP telephone number but I've had a problem on here where I bought something, it didn't arrive etc. Turns out one of my neighbours picked up 'while you were out' note and forgot to give it to me.
