US$210 Down The Hole And No Pedal From www.oxfuzz.com

Post by MentalPatient » 18 Nov 2016, 05:30

After ordering a pedal from Canada that was shipped around July I think I've lost my money.

Paypal exchange rate makes it AU$300

I asked the builder for a tracking #, there was none as tracking is too much, $60-80.

Perhaps the builder think's I'm trying to scam a free 2nd pedal ?

I think once again I've been a victim of Australia Post. Perhaps if there was tracking there would have been less probability of it being lifted by a postal worker.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Tracking with Canada Post is really expensive. I recently purchased a pedal from there and he said, the same thing regarding noone wanting to pay for tracking and that it will be fine. Fortunately mine showed up in good time.

Hopefully the builder comes good with another.

I once purchased an item from Canada. Canadian post is expensive and slow. I had to put in a claim, which sent the seller into a rage. I trusted the seller and explained I had no option but to protect myself and once it arrived I could drop the claim. It arrived about six weeks later.

I hope your purchase ends much the same way. I'd put in a claim. If it's too late for Paypal, put one in with your credit card provider. Not sure if you make the time frames this time round though.

I did this with a PU builder in the US who was a bad businessman and a scammer.

If the seller can't provide you with a tracking number, there really is no proof that he ever sent it. The cost of tracking should be worn by the seller.

My Cave Pedals Grunt went all around Australia, had an extended holiday in NSW, then eventually made it to me,took about 4 weeks to go from Qld to SA lol

I hope you eventually see the pedal :)

My partner bought a bag from LA. Never arrived and the maker refunded her the money. Aus post couldn't answer what happened.
Turned out it got to Sydney and stayed there for a couple of months before being returned to sender because the stamps were a dollar short. :crazy:
The seller had a contact number on the package too.

Yup, and all the Aus Post employees got a bonus for delivering 95% of mail given to them......

Just too bad you were in the 5%

Well it's been a year almost to the day since my last contact with the seller.

I've also posted this in the feedback thread.

http://www.oxfuzz.com/Site/_BASS.html
Feedback: NEGATIVE, AVOID THIS SELLER, NEVER RECEIVED MY PEDAL

Pedal was sent without tracking or signature required.
The seller said "Nobody wants to pay $50 for postage"
Payment was a paypal send money, no big cartel shop or anything like that.
By the time I noticed something is wrong paypal's refund period had expired.
Contacted the seller and his first response was "Oh Really!"
I Sent another email and the seller replies with "I have sold thousands of these and only 2 or 3 have been lost"
Another reply was "I'm busy moving house and will get to building yours after I move"
A time frame was given but I never heard back.
Thousands, really!
