Instead of buying more gear maybe you should repay the refund I gave you for the pickup you claimed didn't arrive (since you've since owned-up to the fact that it eventually did).

It's not the money. It's the principle. This shit shouldn't need explaining to you.

Was sniffing this on Tardme. A bit spendy and I missed the auction close by 2 minutes. Nekminnit, I'm replying to a text from Oleg and a notification pops up this is being offered for exactly the price I decided I'd pay. I pick it up Saturday morning just in time for an afternoon gig.

If I continue to be friends with Oleg, I'm going to need a bigger house. :rofl:

But two fine acoustics, a mandolin and an electric 12 will be very happy.

Do the right thing and pay the man back his money. He was more than honorable with you in the transaction.

Couldn't agree more. Either that or at the very least send the pickup back to Brian

Clearly he doesn't share your sense of decency. The moment the pickup arrived he should've PM'd to arrange repayment of the money he requested (requested because, as I think he put it: "You seem pretty well-off").

Fuck it. Tread carefully around this guy.

Would have thought the day it hit your hands Brian should of had the offer of it returned or the money paid for it straight away. Agree with Mini Forklift...... do the right thing and do not leave a top guy like Brian hanging. All the things he has done for fellow fourmites it should have been sorted quick smart IMO.
If Brian would like it returned I am sure there are a vast number of people that would be more than happy to keep it safe until his return. Myself being one of them.

Cheers Troy.

This was all quite some time ago and wouldn't have surfaced had I not recently learned that he'd reappeared under a new name. I'm not as arsed about the money as I am about alerting other forumites to his shenanigans. From the PM's I've had, I'm not alone in my experience.
