Paypal ?

I sold a Yosh pipe to a guy on the Kawi board and without ever saying a word to me, no emails, no pm's he starts a dipute with paypal saying he never received the pipe.

I did all the tranaction thru paypal, shipping and all, they sent him and me a tracking number, the number (USPS) says something about being notified of shippment but thats it.

Anyway short of it is I shipped the pipe and now 14 days later he says he didn't get it.

I suspect he might still get it or might have it but you never know.

Do I have any recourse ?

Was the pipe shipped USPS Priority Mail? There is usually free delivery confirmation with that services. Go to usps.com and enter the tracking number to check status. Unfortunately, PayPal sides with the customer first -- my buddy dropped them after being boned for a similar situation. You may be able to put in a dispute depending on what you find out with the usps info. hth

No, it was shipped M mail whatever that is, I do have a tracking # but it doesn't show any information.

I'll be pissed if I end up loosing my money and the pipe..

This is a lesson I won't be forgetting soon.

I hope I'm wrong, but it may very well happen. That's what happened to the buddy of mine -- unfortunately, the piston kit went to Australia... otherwise the person would probably end up getting a knock on their front door. So now my buddy is out a few hundred dollars; expensive lesson. His brother had a similar situation happen, except the parcel was insured. The f'd up thing about is that the customer asked to have the customs declaration dollar amount lowered so that he wouldn't have to pay so much VAT. Now the brother is only going to get back what he declared on the customs forms.

Sorry to hear about it, Jamie... I don't think there is that much you can do, unless you know someone in their area. If the person is seen riding around with your pipe on (then again, they could have gotten a replacement), it's quite possible you got scammed.

They won't either... Your best bet is verify the guys address is correct and find him. You can also use the authorities and file a police report in his town.

For your best results, post where he lives and have someone who lives in his area pay him a... ahem.... visit.
