Alright, so i've been dealing with this guy to post for me on craigslist for some time now, but all of a sudden, he stopped posting and the $35 i paid him for the last posting seems to be gone. This guy wont reply my msges or tell me anything. I opened up a dispute on paypal to get my money back and he simply threatened to escalate the dispute and that he will win if he do that, so basically take my money and nothing will happen. I closed that dispute because he promised to post my ad the same day. Paid him on the 9th of August and today is now 28th, and still nothing. Besides, if he is not going to post my ads, why not return my money. Below are the Instand messages we exchanged, so you all can see that am not making anything up. And in all fairness, he's been a great guy to deal with, until now. All i need is my refund. sizzorkay(8/9/2009 9:30:30 AM): hey, payment sent, so you can start tomorrow, i have new text ads we can try, each comes with its own title, so whenever you get online, let me know so i can send it over to you sizzorkay (8/9/2009 10:28:18 PM): hey, wrote u earlier, do not post anything until you get the new text ads, thats important, the image ad you've been using are no good anymore sizzorkay (8/11/2009 3:31:58 PM): dude, whats going on? sizzorkay (8/12/2009 11:30:02 AM): listen, send me my money back if you know you can not post, dont have time waiting on you over and over, so refund my money to me. Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:45:44 PM): hello whats going on? I had to relocate my office because of a few breakins and lost all connection to the internet as things were getting situated. I wouldn't have the dispute opened like that because if I escalate it, I will win. sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:22 PM): Did u even hear what you are saying, if you escalate it u will win sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:28 PM): u forgot its my money? sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:33 PM): wow Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:36 PM): We can either drop this or I will win Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:38 PM): up to you sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:40 PM): go ahead, escalate it Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:46:42 PM): ok sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:46:54 PM): u dont have to, its my money, so return it, simply as that sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:02 PM): i paid u for a service u did not provide sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:09 PM): its as simple as that sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:16 PM): no arguement there Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:47:42 PM): I can issue you a refund within 7-10 business days. If thats unacceptable to you, then I will escalate it. Up to YOU to drop the dispute. If not, like I stated, I will go ahead and escalate it. Not a smart move on your part, but its all up to you sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:47:56 PM): dude, do u even think at all Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:00 PM): lol sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:06 PM): you are threatening me after you have my money? sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:08 PM): wow Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:12 PM): wow sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:18 PM): there is something called reliability sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:24 PM): if u know u cant do what i paid for sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:27 PM): you should have let me know sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:51 PM): as i've said, no need for arguement, i paid for something i did not get then you are threatening to sit on my money Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:56 PM): It wasn't that at all, please reread what I wrote above sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:48:59 PM): go ahead, $35 wont kill me, Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:48:59 PM): We had to quickly move our office Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:01 PM): immediately Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:49:24 PM): Why do you think I'm just now responding to you?

I have to get the ads ready for you. I missed a great deal of time and it fucked me up all around but I had no choice. We almost got everything taken from us. The last thing I like to do is be a week out of work. If you want to work with me on this, then drop the dispute and we will continue like normal and then no hard feelings whatsoever. sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:04 PM): looks who is talking about hard feelings, u the one who let me down, not the other way around sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:11 PM): will drop, but be ready to post sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:13 PM): thats that Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:52:19 PM): OK sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:52:49 PM): what email should i send the ad to Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:52:55 PM): firstname.lastname@example.org sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:54:22 PM): sent Craigslist Postings (8/14/2009 2:54:55 PM): thanks sizzorkay (8/14/2009 2:55:00 PM): np sizzorkay (8/17/2009 12:37:47 PM): hey, i really do hope you can start posting today, this delay is becoming unbearable an, so pls, try to come thru sizzorkay (8/17/2009 1:54:17 PM): hey Craigslist Postings (8/17/2009 1:54:23 PM): hey sizzorkay (8/17/2009 1:54:49 PM): man why do u kept ignoring my msges? this isn't how bizz is supposed to work, is it sizzorkay (8/17/2009 1:54:54 PM): been sending u msges with no reply Craigslist Postings (8/17/2009 1:54:57 PM): ignoring you?

A few others said the same thing. I will be starting today sizzorkay (8/17/2009 1:55:47 PM): k sizzorkay (8/17/2009 8:37:39 PM): 8:37 pm and i see no posts, oh well sizzorkay (8/17/2009 8:37:47 PM): do it whenever u want to, wont ask again sizzorkay (8/20/2009 3:15:01 PM): hey Craigslist Postings (8/20/2009 3:17:32 PM): hey sizzorkay (8/20/2009 3:17:52 PM): so whats going on, no ads yet Craigslist Postings (8/20/2009 3:18:30 PM): They will be posted soon here. I'm just extremly backed up at the moment but will be getting to them no later than tomorrow sizzorkay (8/20/2009 3:18:42 PM): k sizzorkay (8/24/2009 10:36:14 AM): hey man, so you kept telling me you will post today, tomorrow, still nothing, paid you since on the 9th, today is 24th, this kind of delay is wrong, if you can not post, just give me my money back coz am sick of this waiting game, its either you deliver or refund what i paid you, this is going way too long. sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:01 PM): dude where have u been Craigslist Postings (8/24/2009 9:45:18 PM): here working sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:32 PM): so whats up with my ads, sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:48 PM): paid for this thing since 9th, u know wat the date is now sizzorkay (8/24/2009 9:45:58 PM): if u can not do it, it shouldnt be hard to refund my money sizzorkay (8/28/2009 12:53:30 AM): dude, i can not believe u gon do this to me man, what a shame, atleast reply msges, this isn't how to treat someone after taking their money. Not fair, but its $35, you can keep it, hopefully ppl on bhw will know how unreliable you have been, you dont take money from ppl and not do what you are paid for. So basically those are the msges i exchanged with this guy, and you can see him threatening to escalate the dispute and win, someone with common sense wont say that, afterall, its my money. So, from the 9th of August till 28th, i think i've waited enough on this guy.
