Warning

Post by rjbinns »

I didn't want to have to do this but i thought i should warn you all about buying things from 'whitey123'.

Around the start of May i sent him payment for a pair of paddles and everything seemed alright, he was going to send them out as soon as the payment reached him. I checked when he received the payment and was told they would be sent out the next day but 1-2 weeks after that there were still no sign of them. I decided I had waited long enough and asked for my money back and was told that he would send it to me but yet again to no avail.
Around 6 weeks on now and i am still without money or paddles.

So basically I have decided that enough is enough and it is time to name and shame and warn others about this.
I warned Jamie (whitey123) that i was prepared to do this if he did not send me the money back while i was away in the Alps for 2 weeks but still he ignored my messages and has not refunded me. In fact he has not replied to any of my messages since May 26th.

E-mail Mark R. However, I suspect he will want to distance himself from getting personally invovled citing the sticky at start of thread. Hope it gets sorted.

I understand the name and shame rj but please make it clear your beef is with whitey123. My user name is Whitey1, and I was surprised when another name so similar was allowed about a year ago, and now I would hate any confusion. This is a reputational matter and I'd like to make it clear I have no connection whatsoever with the apparent miscreant of this thread. Hope you get resolution rj. Alan

Yep no worries Alan that is quite suprising that so similar names were allowed.

Just to make it clear this is to do with 'whitey123' not 'Whitey1'

There is, I suppose, an outside chance that something unfortunate has happened to the bloke - unlikely I know (and it doesn't look to be the case in your instance) but it must happen from time to time. It would explain a lack of replies...

A true outdoor person would not do such a thing! People like that really boil my piss as you can loss your trust in human nature.

I would get some advice then take him to the small claims court. You will be able to get him for costs too. Citizens advice is a very good starting point. I hope you get it resolved soon.

What a nobber! I was thinking of making him an offer for those paddles, glad I didn't now.

I found an email address for him if it any use to you, even if it just another means of hassling him to give you your money back. it is whiteyhasafro@hotmail.co.uk.

Good luck getting this sorted,

Denzil

This sort of deviancy can get sales sections on forums closed down and nobody wants that. Hope you get this sorted out.

I feel your pain, this reminds me of my dealings with a person on this forum....now long gone, when i purchased a boat off him. Got my money but never sent me the pick up address, took me months to get in contact with him, then another couple of months of wrangling waiting for a refund, then actually getting the address from him, to find out he'd stiffed the holder of said boat aswell, who was not aware of it being sold and was the going to sell it to get back the money he was owed.........the story is a long one and brings back painful memories, more to do with my stupidity to actually trust someone from this forum.

I was going name and shame...i still could.

Son, one day you will make a girl very happy for a short period of time. Then she'll leave you and be with new men who are ten times better than you could ever hope to be.

These men are called kayakers.

I think you mean Jamie12345?

On his thread 'For Sale', in the photos of the drysuit you can see the name 'Whitey' painted on the wall. You also mentioned his name was Jamie in the first post.
