    paid for a set of dainese elbow and knee/shinguards from him 2 weeks ago and still no product.


    Due to a few folks vouching for him, I wait for word until wednesday, then update this thread. I hope this will be resolved satisfactorily.

    Hey Man,
    He is well known around here for being a straight up guy. I think he is out of town right now at the Snowshoe race, and there is no signal up there at all, which could explain his lack of communication. I don't want to make excuses or anything, I just wanted to tell you that I am betting he will take care of it
    ASAP.

    I'll vouch for Chuck, he is a standup guy. Like Jeremy said, he's been at snowshoe for a few days which would probably explain his lack of recent contact.

    If I were you, I would wait more than 3 days of no contact (and make certain the items were infact not shipped) before smearing in a scam thread. Not saying it's right, but I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt

    So how many times in the last 2 weeks have you called him to ask where they are?

    Yes, I made a mistake and mis-shipped the pads. I did communicate however as soon as I received your private message. The pads have been delivered now and I want to say I am sorry for the delay. thanks Chuck

    Thanks for all the peeps who have my back, but I guess I will just say that If anyone buys
    anything from me that is sent by mail in the future please realize I have successfully shipped about 200 items between ebay and ride forums but, I have messed up a couple times so there is about 1 in 100 chance that I could mess up again and you may have to wait a couple weeks for me to straighten it out. But, even though I am not perfect on shipment time, I can say I am perfect in that every single transaction I have ever made has arrived! So I am not a scam artist or nor would I intentionally try and rip someone off. Now can someone else please scam someone so that this post will move off the mainpage... hahaha

    i received the pads today, but after 26 days from payment on august 15th. If you are a potential future buyer, keep that in mind.

    Dude, give it a rest! Chuck explained himself, and apologized. $hit happens, he didn't do anything to be shady, he made a mistake.

    because you may be friends with him or think he's an honest guy, i'm reporting that it took nearly 4 weeks to get product, nothing more. draw whatever conclusion you wish.

    isn't it the whole point of this forum? report problems with a transaction? there was a problem, i reported it. it got resolved. case closed.

    2 transactions with metal dude. Nothing but a great seller. Prompt shipping, products as described, fair prices.

    would do business again
