    I have received an offer from him for one of my domains and it was accepted. See here. But it was more than 10 days ago. I am trying to get in touch but PM is full. Last activity shows 4th May. I don't know anything about him. Can you help? :confused:

    Hes a top guy so doubt hes done a runner - will be a real reason why hes not been in touch.

    Hope all is ok with him!

    Thanks, guys!

    @accelerator: PM received, cheers! Checking it now.

    @rob: I don't doubt him, I would not think that an established member would do something like that for 50 quid. I also hope that he's OK, as he hasn't been around for a while.

    Need your advice

    The situation is getting a bit strange now. I know that he was online last week, even posted in the "wanted" section. I have sent 3 PMs and an email - no reply whatsoever. And this is going on for almost 3 weeks...

    I just want to understand what's wrong. I would be easy to put a negative and forget about it. This is not about 50 quid, this is about understanding what went wrong. He is an established member with very good feedback so I don't want to jump into conclusions.

    What would you do in this case? :confused:

    Over a £50 sale and 3 ignored PM's i'd give up too, it just isn't worth chasing any further.

    Without mentioning names I dealt with an established member on here who has great fedback and a few thousand posts etc, I kept PM'ing and 1 e-mail and no response, he was active on here just didn't acknowledge our deal.

    I just put it on the back burner and waited for him to come to me which never happened, I would just you wait for Grandin to come to you.

    We all have personal issues to deal with and sometimes they get in the way of business.

    Good luck and take it easy !

    Thanks for your replies! Appreciated.

    This is exactly what I think and so not stamping with a "negative".

    I had an email from Lee at the end of last week saying he'd just been overseas. I didn't hear anything else from him, but did mention this thread in my reply. I'm sure he will be in contact soon.

    Cheers, mate! I am glad he is OK. The rest can (most probably) be sorted when he's back.

    theres a couple other slow repliers on here who have been on for years and with a good reputation. I imagine some people must have kids and work stressed 60 hour+ weeks with angry partners shouting GET OFF THAT BLOODY PC!!

    i just send 2 or 3 pm's a few days apart and if I dont hear back so be it :/
