Bad Trade with Bentley 61
« on: March 14, 2008, 09:20:52 am »
I really didn't want to have to do this.  I recently (3-4 weeks ago) did a trade with Bentley 61, swapping a 1/72 Lancaster complete kit for a resin Flanker forward fuselage + some missiles.  He has received the kit (I used recorded delivery, and they say it has been delivered), but I have seen nothing of the promised parts, although he lives in England as well.  I sincerely hope that there is an innocent explanation for this, but I would caution everyone to be careful in trades with this member until it is resolved.
  Obviously, if it turns out I am over-reacting, I will post a huge apology, so please, prove me wrong!!

Hi deathjester, I take it you've tried to contact him via PM?

    Is your recorded delivery as unreliable as the USPS Delivery Confirmation?

Well, we'll just have to see what happens!  Recorded Delivery is usually pretty precise - either it's delivered, or it's not, and they leave you a little form to tell you they tried.

Sounds like they've modelled themselves on Lee Evan's ParcelForce sketch!

I had a similar problem with Bentley... except that I well received the decals he sent to me while he never received the big package I send to him...
Maybe a problem with his post office or Royal Mail (but in my case I won't be surprise if the problem came from french Poste, as usual  ;D) ??

Whatever, he send me the decals even before he got the package, so I think there is no problem in having a deal with Ben. That's probably nothing, I hope so ;)

Anyway, good luck!
