basically I'm sure many of you guys have experienced some issues with getting your order and/or money back from Tripwire who ran the t8og forums and "tactical customs" online shop. I originally payed him $300 flat for an item after which about probably 4 weeks or so he was getting an increasingly bad rap from everyone and the online shop shut down due to difficulties of whatever sort..
Well I filed a PayPal dispute and "won"... they didn't get me all my money back all I got back was $17.95 which was all that was in Tim Elder (Tripwire) account at the time.
Since then he has been telling me constantly that "payments have been sent" and "will be sent" and all excuses that you can think of to delay in hopes of (I guess) me forgetting that he still has $282.05 of my money..
So he owed me $282.05 up until today.. when I got a money order in the mail..
$282.05 money order? nope..
$200 money order? nope..
$25 WHAT THE HELL
Not once did he tell me he was only sending TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS. Now he owes $257.05!
on the left of the money order where it says 'memo' it says "Partial payment for t8og items" so I figure he is meaning to pay the rest back but holy crap when????.. I won't be living in my house in 6 months I'm shipping off for Army basic!
This just turned even more ridiculous than it already was..which I didn't think was possible. ...will update post w/ his reply email (he tends to avoid those too unless I keep nagging him)
UPDATE 1/29Finally got the rest of my money, leaving this thread up though.
