I purchased 2 leather straps (april 11/08) from an ebayer that sold Atlas Guitar straps. Everything seemed fine but after a month (May 12/08) I emailed them to say I still hadn't got them. They told me that they would send out some more straps right away. (May 14/08)

By now the person (I am assuming a "she") is no longer a registered member of ebay, so I sent an email asking why and she replied that they took too much in fees, and she is just using her website to sell.

So over 2 months have passed now, and I still havent got my straps so I send another email (June 16/08) asking where they are. This time I get no reply for OVER a month, but I finally get a reply saying that her mother has been sick and that she has kinda lost her head. (July 21/08)

A week later she emails saying that they are almost done making the straps and that she is going send them back out to me the next day. (July 28/08)

I send out multiple emails asking for some confirmation that she has actually sent them to no reply, on August 15, 2008 I ask for my money back.

On August 19th I issue an ultimatium that I am going to take my story to all the Guitar forums I can find so that their product is boycotted and noone else gets ripped off.

August 29/08 Someone replies from the same account to say that the lady I was talking to is very sick, and they are trying to find someone to make the straps.

I replied to them that it has been 4 months, I call bullshit in a bunch of their lies, and tell them I am taking the story to the web.


I am creating webpage that is going to detail every email we had back and forth (will have it finished tonite)

IF you want to send an email to them asking where my straps are their email is on their site. http://www.atlasguitarstrap.com/servlet/Service

I havent heard anything from them in over a week now, but if I DO recieve my straps I will take everything back.

I have asked for my moneys back lots and they pretend they never heard that part.

Does she make any kind of other shit? A woman on Ebay did that same crap to my girlfriend for some stuff she ordered.

Yeah I payed thru paypal.. To late to dispute.. Its been 5 months.

I think she must have because her ebay store was "beltbucklesandmore"



You should of taking action after atleast a month, which would have been a common sense move.

I would still go to Paypal about it tho.

Also how much did you pay?
#8
Yeah but after a month she just said that she was going to send out some more straps. It seemed legit with good communication until after paypal wouldnt let me do anything.

$70 bucks I paid. Not much I know, but I dont like being screwed out of ANY money

Something similar has happened to me!

I bought 2 reading tix off ebay for £410. No send. No refund. happened too long ago for paypal to help, or even for ebay to remember the transaction.

Now the mission is finding out where the guy lives so i can take it to court.

Its a lame situation, and i understand your annoyance.

that sucks. good luck...
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

yeah that does really suck. Try to report her to Ebay reguardless of the fact that she isnt a member anymore, report her to PayPal, and where ever else you can.


Watch you go through all that and you find out that she was really sick with some bizarre disease where she would loose her memory.

Too soon....

Well now someone replied back to me that what I am doing is slander and

"They were planning on sending out the straps but now why should they?"

Uhhh because I paid money for them, and what you are doing is illegal!!
#26
agreed. it's not slander if it's true.

haha, nice (the google thing, not the fact you've got no strap ).

Just typed Atlas Guitar Strap into Google and obviously their site came up, clicked on it and it's 'temporarily unavailable' - looks like they've done a runner.

A similar thing happened to my aunt.
She somehow found the woman's phone number, rang her up, and explained that her brother was a solicitor and he's more than happy to speak to her if she wants.

She got her package via Express Post a day later, even though she only paid for regular.
Just pull out the big guns and tell her you'll sue.
