    A member in this forum offered a PC of leather he had left over from his car and I was in need for a small pc.
    So I offered him an exchange for a new uncut folding ignition Key for his car he got the Key a week later but I got no leather.so I contacted him and he told me it must be lost in the mail and he would send a new pc.but sadly nothing ever came.and now no more answers to my pm,s.it is not the key I am mad about I got lots of them it is the trust I lost in this man,I can expect this on E bay but not in this Forum where we help each other out the best we can,this very sad and I thought it would never happen here.

    that's never good.
    you should invite him to your thread tell his side of the story, and might put pressure to fulfill the agreement.
    Things happen sometimes out of our control.

    Postal service isn't exactly fast these days; why are you certain the leather is not in the delivery chain?

    What is the leather going to be use for, what color, and how big of a piece do you need? I ask because I have some bits and pieces of leather left when I did my interior a few years ago.

    Too bad. I have a few persons on fchat I will not buy from or deal with either but the overwhelming majority of us are honest. I too have a piece of black leather you can have if it serves your need. How big?

    I have had very good luck with our members. Sorry to hear of your experience. Do you want to name them so we can all watch out for them. It may prompt him/her to follow thru.

    Yes, this is really too bad. Have dealt with members here from all over the country (and Canada) and never once a bad experience. Hell, I even disagreed on a political thread with one our own (Hannibal 308). Somehow mentioned my desire to fly left seat in a Lear 35 and his response was to extend an invitation for me to take a ride in his vintage fighter aircraft. How absolutely cool is that? Incredible how we come together to support one another when tragedy strikes. Don’t let this small incident take away from this amazing group of individuals.

    If you've really been taken advantage of, it's incredibly disappointing to hear. I've had so many great transactions with other members here that I can't even remember them all.

    Very sorry for your bad experience... but we all should keep one thing in mind... The 308 world is a very small, most of us know who is who and dishonest people don't get to far

    Thankfully these episodes are rare. I have bought and sold items w many on f-chat. I purchased a tool roll from a regular poster in the 308/Mondial sections. The photo had a Ferrari emblem placed in the center of the roll. I didn’t think much of it. When the roll arrived it had a significant burn mark (hidden in the photo by the emblem). It happens. On one occasion, I had an f-chatter contact me after I accidentally sent him more items than promised. Most folks are good. :)
