Far as i'm concerned this has always been a trustworthy place to buy and sell. Would much rather do it on here than elsewhere. That's why I think any rip-off merchants should be called out and frozen out.

To clarify, only because the transaction happened on WhatsApp and not on Fuk.

I have been a FUK'er since 2006 and never had an issue with classifieds until now.

Mason aka MB has also been on here since 2005, that's why I didn't hesitate to pay him by bank transfer (he says he doesn't have paypal Puzzled )

I did give him the benefit of doubt but it's been a week since payment now and he very well knows I bought it as a Xmas gift and needed to receive ASAP.

Thanks to a helpful FUKer, I managed to find his Insta and contacted him on there. Last night he replies to my DM and says he has been busy, thinks his Mrs has posted the item but cannot be sure so he needs to check with her, etc etc…

Patiently waiting for him to get back to me…
Hopefully he will do the right thing and either confirm item was shipped OR refund

It takes 2 mins to log in here and say something, a week is out of order imo.

Having a job has fuck all to do with it.

He didn't have a job when he posted it up for sale, and no doubt was quick to take the cash. He's lost a job, not his limbs.

Why give him a break when he knows it was bought as a Christmas gift? If you are buying something and parting way with your cash - it’s not your problem that someone’s dog died. Out of courtesy he should have replied.

Takes less than a minute to send a PM.

If he has time to be checking his Instagram and replying to messages on there, then he has no excuse.

Exactly.
All I need from him is a quick response to tell me what is going on.
He is active on Instagram and does read his messages but stopped replying.

We exchanged close to 10 PMs on here and his replies were swift, until he got his payment…

As I said I did give him the benefit of doubt but he has been lying and this is not the first time he has done this.

So so pathetic, I'm actually embarrassed for him
