    Advice please.

    A few weeks ago I used the forum to sell a barrel and included bank details for the buyer to pay me. So Far, despite numerous PMs and a hand written reminder the buyer has not paid .The tracking number confirms that it was delivered. Where do I go from here? Advice please.

    Name and shame , I say.

    If you have taken all reasonable steps to no avail - time to name the culprit

    Probably two options;
    If you shipped it the mail order form would have the address and details of the buyer. Lodge a claim with small claims court although this might not be worth it.
    Name the user on here, someone may know them personally.

    Just a note, but if you didn't do a s43a mail order form, I wouldn't pursue this matter in any legal capacity. The punishment for contravening Section 43a of the Arms Act is up to 6 months prison and up to $10,000 fine.

    Probably best in future you receive payment before shipping unless you personally know the buyer.

    We're a pretty trusting bunch overall but occasionally some lowlife will abuse the trust. I had an equivalent situation with a stock. Sent it off before he paid then he went to ground. A minimal amount of detective work on a distinctive name ended up revealing his work address. Called the number and he in fact answered, about five seconds of shocked silence after I told him who was ringing.. Paid that night.

    Taught me a lesson to send only after payment.

    Name and shame time. You have played nice to no avail - out the person and let his friends on here know what he has done

    I got burnt once by a fella named Andrew Davis aka Drewski. I paid and never got the package then he vanished after some bullshit excuses. Like to say I learnt my lesson but I'd be lying, no troubles since but I do try and check out the person I'm dealing with the best I can. Hope you get some resolution Gary. Just name him so someone can help you out

    @garyp if you pm me some details my offer to try help still stands. As I hadn't heard any more from you I assumed the matter had been sorted.
