    Just need to vent/ask questions.
    On one of the truck forums I frequent I made a deal through PM with another member. We made a trade on parts, me paying shipping both ways. My end of the deal shipped out around 1/12, sent the person the the ups tracking number when it shipped. He has recieved the shipment and verified it through PM. All I have gotten from him is excuses as to why his end of the deal has not shipped. I told the guy I was not in a hurry for the shipment, to me that meant get it shipped out in a couple/few days not weeks. I figured once I provided a tracking number, mine would get shipped out soon- good faith type of thing. Tonight I sent a pm asking him if he is gonna screw me or not....I'd rather just know. I guess I'm the sucker in this case.
    So what would you do? I have the PMs, would you post the correspondence to warn other members?
    Right now, just disappointed

    It might have been a mistake, I ship ALOT with UPS and have very good rates. So I do/did not mind paying the shipping. The member is a young guy per his profile, plus sent me pics of his end of the trade. Prolly got took on this deal, atleast thats the way it looks.Live and learn!
