Default Waiting for shipment

I'm interested in your opinions

How long should a buyer wait after payment has been made for shipment to occur? What is your recommendation on the appropriate action to take against a deabeat seller?

Just for reference - my situation is:

Payment sent 10 days ago. Seller said it would ship on day 3, after contacting the seller - was told they were too busy to get it shipped, would ship on day 6. Since day 7, seller has not responded to buyer inquiries, but has logged onto RC Tech daily.

It's way too long without contact, if he's loging in and not responding to PM or E-Mail it Don't look good! Send two more e-mail one requesting a phone # and seckond telling them they will get bad feed back and you will involve the cops and postal service! Get on them! Good luck! I hate scamers!

There may have been a good reason for the first delay. You are now way past what is reasonable without a good explanation. It's time to proceed with action.

I have a sneeky suspicion that the person you are dealing with is Chad. I've had this feeling ever since he popped up. Everything he does has Chad stamped all over it.

I HOPE you paid with PayPal, if you did file a complaint.

I have filed a formal complaint with the Internet Crimes Division of the FBI. If you or anyone else has been victimized by this criminal, please send me a PM, and I will refer the FBI to the volume of fraudulent activity perpetuated by this criminal. I am also in the process of filing a mail fraud claim with the USPS.

Edited to add:

Fraudulent seller used the following information:

Screen Name: rustlerbasher09
Name: Dusten Slocum
Location: Eugene, OR
Paypal: [email protected]

Well,now it all is making sense.This kid is a well known scammer on many r/c sites.He has ripped alot of people off.If the rest of his victims also file with the ic3,they should have more than enough to nail him to the wall.Here are a couple older threads about the same kid.He used to go under the name "revobasher2008"
