    Sandstorm?? Have I been trolled?

    Just wondering if anyone knows personally, or has had any transactions with Sandstorm. I recently made a purchase from him For Sale: Travla C134 CarPC and have yet to receive the product, any notice of shipment, or even a e-mail or PM. Yesterday I started the dispute resolution process through PayPal, hopefully this can be resolved. Thanks!

    From the guys attitude on the sale thread, I'm not sure why you even bought it from him. Since you sent the payment on the 14th, I would say you've been had.

    UPDATE: Well I finally received an email last night from Sandstorm, and apparently my package had been shipped since Tuesday, and he gave me a USPS shipping confirmation number. I went on their site to track it and it says it was processed and left their Dallas, TX facility on 28 Nov. I'm not familiar with USPS tracking info, so I'm not sure if that means it was just shipped on the 28th, or if that was it's last stop. Either way I'm glad it's coming!

    EDIT: His reason for not contacting me was that he "lost my e-mail address," even though I sent him numerous ones, even one two days before I filed with PayPal telling him if he didn't write back I was gonna start the dispute resolution process. Not to mention he could refer back to the PayPal transaction and get it from there.

    BULL**** about losting your email address. You send him money thru paypay. All he has to do is login to paypal and retrieve it from there.

    Until what you bought is in your hand, you are not there yet.
    He could send you a package with cheap porn videos to sastify paypal requirement "package sent and here is the tracking number."
    If possible, video tape the package while opening it. If the postman still around, that even better. It doesn't do much but at least, there is something to prove that he isn't send me what i bought.

    If they sent anything other then the items you requested and paid for, its mail fraud, have the post office, or postal carrier watch you open it.

    something similar happened to me, i sent the guy the money (upwards from $200 bucks) and he just went quiet... so i posted a thread on the 18th of october i think, well still no response from him but ill be dammned if that box didnt show up a couple weeks later with a postmark of the 18th of oct. Good luck on this, hopefuly you get what you paid for and not a box of sand.
    It works!!

    Almost all of the time too!
