I'm not sure if I'm supposed to post this here or not, but I just want everyone to know and possibly warn you of my situation.

I have opened a dispute with Paypal for a refund from this seller because I have not recieved my items.

He gave me 4 expected delivery dates and the items still did not come.

My wife has lost over $300 worth of work pay because she had to take those days off to be home for the delivery. Now my family cannot afford to take another day off to recieve these items whether he sends them out today or not.

This seller did not even have the courtesy to tell me the items were not shipped... I had to ask him every time.

I have an email of him agreeing that if he cannot send the items out on 10-25-2006, that he would give me a refund. Needless to say, the items were not shipped out.

Buyer's beware.

Do not buy from this dishonest scammer.

Well, needless to say, this person did not follow through on his word AGAIN... he didn't refund my money yesterday as promised.

His excuse for not sending the money and corals is because he doesn't have time. Why would he offer services if he doesn't have time?

There are others who are having problems with this user... He should be banned from selling on these boards.

Below is our communication on the resolution center on paypal.

This person never refunded my money. I had to file a claim with paypal. Luckily Paypal refunded my money... hopefully they have better luck collecting from this scammer than I did.

Hopefully Reefcentral has the interest of their users and bans this scammer.

Sorry about posting the messages.. I had the community in my best interest when I did that!
