    Default Trade gone bad

    OK, so I traded my tudor for a couple of watches. The other guy said these watches where 2836 and 9015, both BP watches and bought from torro bravo. They turned up and they are low beat dhgate level crap! I asked him wtf and he came out with 5 different excuses. He asked how does he resolve this situation. I said Either we send them back to each other, or I send his back and he buys mine. He came up with a 3rd option, that I keep his and he buys mine. That was over a week ago. He hasn't received mine yet, its Xmas after all. But he said he will pay me "in a few days"
    I pointed out that if he had bought it the normal way I would of been paid and he would still be waiting for the watch, he acknowledges this.
    But still refuses to pay, as of just now he will pay Monday or Tuesday.

    I've messaged a mod last week but not had a reply yet.
    Any ideas folks.

    That doesn't sound good. I think that you now have to wait for the mods to get back to you. This is always a bad time of year for trying to resolve issues like this and just like us, the mods have their own lives outside of RG.
    My only other advice is to keep 'talking' to this guy and keep up a dialogue. It won't necessarily do much to help the situation but you need to get as much info as you can. (i.e. when he says he received the watch – if he ever does).
    Can you track the watch from your end?
    It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right. (W.C.)

    Yeah it's tracked, and I'll know when it gets delivered. This has put me off trading on here. The watches he tried to Palm off are shocking. One of them loses an hour a day! It's quite telling that he doesn't want them back! But if he pays me I'll send them back, they're hatefull things and I don't want them near me LoL!
    It's the abuse of trust that's the worse part, they've been a member since *2018 I think it is. So they should know that this thing we do here between ourselves is based on trust, and this person is abusing my trust. Not nice :/

    Is there a proper form to fill in when doing this, a support ticket process kind of thing. I booted the laptop up to look on the proper site but couldn't find anything.


    *I checked, it's actually 2014.

    There are no forms just a PM to one of the mods. Did this guy have any feedback?
    I must admit I've never traded and only bought and sold. It must be a great leap of faith that:-
    a) The second party will send his/her watch(es) as agreed
    b) That the items have been described accurately by the other party.

    I don't think that this kind of dishonesty is restricted to RG. I recall that on another forum a package was received with nothing in it.
    Of course the sender insisted that the item was sent and suggested theft in transit. The buyer's view was that the packaging had not been tampered with... and so it went on.

    I do hope you get the funds and all is resolved amicably, though I don’t think that I’d waste my hard earned cash on paying postage to send his watches back. What would happen if they got lost in transit? Another can of worms. If he is happy for you to keep them and you have it in writing, why bother.
    It is a fine thing to be honest, but it is also very important to be right. (W.C.)

    By trading I meant in general, buy, sell swap etc etc etc.
    I agree wholeheartedly. With what you said Pal. The empty box is what I'm expecting next! Just be my luck.
    As for feedback I'll have to have a look. I use tapa as it's easier than navigating the forum on the small screen. I have very little use for a computer these days. In fact I've only recently discovered the whole itrader thing. I bought a watch last week and was asked to leave feedback using it, didn't know it existed till then, so no I didn't check it. I just checked he had been a longstanding member, and he had been a member since 2014 so felt safe enough.

    And here I am at 10:15pm still waiting......
    His excuse for not sending it is that he is out of the house. Don't know about everyone else but I can send money to PayPal easier from my phone than from my computer.

    Before we did the trade I sent u pictures and video of the watches u already received.
    U agreed with everything, after u received the package u didn't want them anymore.
    Your package hasn't arrived yet.
    I was advised in this forum, that I should send the watch back to u once it arrives, we agreed on a trade, u have agreed whit everything and now u don't want.

    I never stopped replying u, never blocked u.

    So thats what I am going to do, once your package reach is destination is going back to u.

    I will post the tracking number here, for everyone to see. U also chared our whatsapp conversation, whitout even advice me that u would do that.

    All our conversation will be in this thread for now and forward, I'm am not a scammer, and I will do what I was advised to do.

    Your package hasn't arrived yet. U can also check u have the tracking.

    Regards

    I agreed to 2 watches that where a 2836 and a 9015 movement, two watches that you claimed were bought from Torro. Yet as soon as you realised I could see through your attempted scam you said I could keep them!

    This is the biggest reply I've had from you since I called you out!

    I asked you to send my watch back when you receive it but you insisted on keeping it. Then dragged your feet paying, as you agreed to do.

    And at no point in this thread are you mentioned until I tagged you last night. After, again you didn't do something you said you would.

    Tell me, what am I supposed to think? You say your watches are good and from Torro yet you don't want them back. Then you say you will pay me then you don't. If it looks like a scam and feels like a scam what am I supposed to call it?
