frags4u- not a good gamble

I purchased a light from frags4u (different name) last July, and it never came. After months of hassel, he admitted it never got shipped, and sayed he'd return my money. So far he's paid $25 of the $190, and that was a couple months ago. Just be aware.

Had trouble with him in the past too... Mine was eventually resolved (got full refund) but only after aggressively pursuing it, getting paypal and credit card company involved, etc.
In a gesture of good will, I advised him to be prompt when shipping out goods and to maintain a good level of communication with his buyers.... I guess he never took that advise to heart at all... I definitely do not recommend dealing with him.

Agreed. Besides, it's not just about refunding payments... it's about wasted time time and effort, not to mention the aggravation of having to chase someone around because they don't even bother to give you a simple tracking number...
It all comes down to 'customer service' and I hate to say it, but this guy fell very short in that department. I even went as far as advising him about the importance of clear and constant communication, specially when making amends...
but it now seems like it was more of an exercise in futility.

By the way, it's now been 11 months since I paid Frags4u the $190, and no contact or refund. Surely he's found a job by now.

Even if he hasnt found a job... What is with the mentally that he sees this as your problem... Send the product or the cashh Frags.... Otherwise it is FRAUD plain and simple!

Wow, almost a year! Dude if I were her you'd have cops banging down your door. Hey I understand how things can happen, I bought something from someone and it took me two weeks longer than expected to pay him, but you can bet your butt I called him and let him know the whole time what was going on, even offered to pay interest which he refused. Did you ever even have the light?
