    Resolution

    I've never had an issue that wasn't resolved. As with all dealings between two people, there's always the possibility of miscommunication, contention of facts or some other confusion. I've found my dealings with any fellow HF members to always end with some agreeable resolution. Hopefully, the same will happen with you.

    I have been in contact with the seller and because of the medical/cash issues of the seller I am going to take the hit and not pursue a return of my $$ my way of putting a little $ in the Karma bank.
    I am sorry this happened to you.

    Personally this leaves a bad taste in mouth. To have something misrepresented, and the transaction not made right for whatever the reason, doesn't sit right with me.

    Unfortunately not naming names leave it open to being a guessing game with who you had the transaction with.

    Years ago i had a transaction go sour with a misrepresented item (not on hammock forums) and after months of back and forth and a LOT of reasons why from the seller as to why money not coming forward. I finally never got my $ back. They were banned. I never pursued legal action but i chalked it up to lesson learned.

    If you feel this transaction is resolved then good.
    If the Moderators feel the transaction is resolved, then i will have pause for thought the next time i post "i'll take it"

    The above comment by angrysparrow backing up the buyer or even the seller says a lot. I have had no problems. Good Karma is beautiful thing. It will all work out.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    DIY misrepresentation

    So now I am interested- do you have this piece of DIY gear that you don't want? What is it? Is it for sale? =)

    This purchase has in NO way discouraged me from buying from the FOR SALE threads on here . This is a great site ! The Mods truly do an amazing job and make this an enjoyable place to hang out ...As I stated I am not perusing the seller for a refund he obviously needs the $ He knows how I feel about this and I am pretty sure this will not happen again from the seller. I am in no way trying to vilify this person which is why I will not post his name in this thread ..Although his name has been given to the proper people on HF

    A little search, and I could take an educated guess as to who, but if you were lied to about the product, it would make me suspect the reason behind it, being financial or not, could also be a lie. Makes me not want to purchase from this person, and having issues to deal with. Just my .02

    As Mr.Tattoo stated, he did PM the mods with details. We're looking into it. This seller won't be an issue again.

    That is too funny, but my thinking exactly. If you misrepresent on a public forum (or lie), then it's pretty much there for anyone to see for perpetuity. Once you've lost your reputation, it's hard to get it back again.

    While I've bought a few things on this forum, I'm hesitant to ever do so again without thoroughly knowing and trusting the person. We all like to think that the HF community is a family, but really, it's largely a collection of strangers. That's all well and good for discussing hammocks, but when it comes to buying stuff from total strangers, caveat emptor!

    bummer this happened to you, but it is not all a loss. alot of us admire the cloth you are cut from you make a fine example as a fellow hanger.

    Sorry to hear about the negative purchase, but I am glad that I did a quick search for future reference.
