Ben, you owe me $70 for the thermostat housing and cover I sent back in September (!) of last year.

I understand things come up in life that are of more importance, and I've been understanding, but now you're blatantly ignoring me. The latest email I sent was last Friday the 29th. You've posted here as recently as the 30th.

Just send me the $70 you owe me. If you need my PayPal address, send me a PM.
Ain't irony a bitch?

Get Mozilla Firefox, that way you can not only fix your spelling, but learn how to spell in the process.

Swimmingly.

How would you suggest this be handled? Keep in mind, this has been going on since September of last year.

I just wondered. There was a lot of comments flying around, but nothing from you.

Have you tried the phone?

Unfortunately he's already said he's going to pay last month, do you think he'll suddenly change his mind if Pat calls him? I'm sure that post above is only one of many reminders. It looks fairly clear even from the post above that Pat has contacted him and Ben acknowledged the need for payment, yet payment still has not been made. I'd be interested to hear Ben's side, however, its hard to tell if he's seen the thread since he has his last login date blocked.

My thoughts are that a forum mod should be one of the few people on the forum you don't exactly have to worry about bad business transactions. Is that unrealistic?

I only suggested the phone because it wasn't mentioned and I've seen email/pm fail. No assumptions on my part.

Had I had his number, or knew where he worked, I would have called before posting this. Since I know neither, this is my last resort.

And Brad's right, I have every PM and email promising some form of payment since December. Without looking through all the correspondence, I'd guess he's promised to send parts, pay for shipping on another item as payment, or just flat out reimburse me 8 times now.

I guess this is what I get for trusting another member here and shipping them parts when there was little to no incentive for me to do so, other than wanting someone to have a matching set of powdercoated pieces.

Who knows whether he's seen this thread. The bigger questions is: If he has, does he care?
