There’s too many holes in his excuses for me to accept the fact that his failure to respond was because of an injury. One of MANY examples is the fact that he posted, not that he was auto logged on but that he posted a comment on a thread...... "I had a similar rod with metal ferrules and they were supposed to have made the rod very stiff and not a very easy to sell because of that fact. " This post was on April 10th..... 24 days after Sam says he made payment. Sam says he made numerous attempts to see what was going on with the delay of shipment on and before April 10th. There are other holes in his excuses as well, but you only need one to sink a ship. Scott from one prior serviceman to another I thank you for your service. However if you really want to clear your name, you should PM the mods some sort of proof. Otherwise I'm afraid, you have discredited yourself far beyond repair on this forum. IMHO.
