Hey all,

I need some help contacting a board member here and wonder if any of you have a phone number or email address for him. One month ago we worked out a deal for a 7wt rod and reel, payment was sent to him on 03/17/2013. After multiple follow ups regarding the shipping date of the rod, Scott went silent. Last correspondence date was 04/03/2013, when he stated that I should receive the rod no later than Friday 04/05/2013. After the rod didn't show up on Friday I gave him a couple more days before following up hoping the rod just got held up in shipping somewhere. I followed up on the 9th, never heard back. Followed up on the 10th, sent the PM while he was on the forum reading a post, never heard back. Followed up last Friday the 12th, never heard back and finally made one last effort to contact him yesterday stating he had 24 hours to provide status or I'd have to pursue help from the board and a potential claim on Paypal.

It's been a month and I'm getting frustrated and frankly disappointed that a man's word wasn't kept on a deal. I've had so many successful transactions on this forum I guess it was my turn to get screwed on a one.

If any of you knows Scott Martin aka NewTyer1 phone number or contact information I would greatly appreciate your help. He was last on the board Sunday evening and I would guess that he's been reading my PMs as they stack up in his inbox.

Sam,

While I don’t know how to contact him, I would say you allowed ample time to pass and you should start contacting PayPal in regards to your transaction with him. Hope you get this resolved soon and in your favor!

I had a problem with him a couple of years ago, not over money owed. I haven't heard anything negative since then when I confronted him on this board. Maybe calling him out will get it done again.

Mayfly I have done a lot of things through paypal and you only have so long once you send the money so make sure you don't let that time go by our you won't get any help but if you do it in time they will get it worked out. They will freeze his account and he won't be able to do nothing with it. And then they send you your money up to 500$ don't know what you paid. Hope it all works out

Mayfly you need to act soon because there is a limit on how long after a transaction you can dispute it. If you sent money to him as a gift instead of for goods or services you will not be able to dispute the transaction. If you didn't then you are golden. The only way he would win is if he 1. Provided tracking numbers to paypal. 2.Required signature on delivery of the item to prove it was not lost. If he did not do both of those things you will win the dispute. If nothing else it will lock his account. I'm sorry that happened to you.

I remember there being an issue with him a while back taking stuff for free (someone was looking to donate it and he had a disabled vet story I think) and then turning around and selling it on some other forum and maybe on this one also. I guess it eventually got straightened out because as I remember it the thread was deleted so as to not sully his good name.

Just file a claim on PayPal. It sends him a message and allows both of you to work it out on PayPal. If he doesn't respond via PayPal after a week or 2, PayPal then refunds you the money. I've had to do it a few times. Only once did PayPal forcefully get the money back.

I'm new here but if someone is doing something like that isn't there a way we can keep him off the site. I mean he doesn't seem like the kind of person I would want to get to know let alone go fishing with or talk about fishing to. I know I don't even care what he has to say. I mean a man is only as good as his actions!!!
