    Gun Safe Safewell 10-Gun A-Cat

    Hi everyone,

    I would appreciate some advice and I'm posting on this forum as it related.

    On the 9/8/19 I advertised and sold a gun safe through this forum and got paid $400 by DC into my bank account. I received a couple of private messages through this site from the buyer, anzac_mike who said he'd call me that weekend to arrange pick up. Since then, and despite multiple messages from me I've heard nothing. I've sent a message to admin of this site to ask if they will let me have the buyers email address or phone number but have not received a reply. I'm moving house in a couple of weeks so need the safe gone. I cannot return the funds as I do not have the buyers bank account details. I considering re-advertising the safe and if and when anzac_mike gets in touch I'll return his funds, however if anyone has a better idea I'm all ears!

    Cheers
    David

    Not acceptable, 'tho there may be an explanation. I have emblazoned this for you and hopefully one of the moderators will see it and come to your assistance.

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.

    Agree, could be a lot worse, Labour could formed a coalition with the NZ First and the Greens and we could have the most inept PM and government in history..... hang on......

    Yes, exactly - leaves you more concerned about his wellbeing than about his safe blocking your driveway or wherever it is.

    On the other hand, keep an eye out for suspicious transactions on the account you used, never know if it is a phishing thing, though does not sound like it.

    To be fair @anzac_mike may have had a issue that he cannot sort at the minute.

    Admin should make a temp sticky, with his username, and email directly as the funds have been transferred already.

    Shit happens every day, and usually when you think it won't, but money has changed hands, and as we are fit and proper, we should do what we can as a forum.
