    I will tell you that the deal wasn't right from the beginning. As a Noob he wanted me to ship a M/O at the same time as he sent his bat. Then I get reports that he was selling this bat on Craigslist or used the pictures from a Craigslist add. We had great communication in the beginning and then he drops from the face of the earth. He sends me a PM on the 25th of June stating "Good News bat shipped out today." I ask him for a tracking number so that I could ship out his M/O, no luck with any replies for that request. I call him and he answers and tells me he was busy with leagues that he will send the number to me later. Well later comes and to no avail...no tracking number. I call on a separate occasion and his roommate answers the phone and tells me that they boxed up a Demarini and my Flex and mailed them out already. His buddy tells me that Trantula aka Tommy Capone is at a tourney in Connecticutt for a week and will pass a message to him when he gets home. I've left PM's, personal messages on his profile page, called left messages with his machine and his roommate. This is just a warning to all who may deal with him. To this point it seems that neither party has sent anything so I can't give him negative feedback.

    He got many board bros hopes up when he advertised this bat and said that he could possibly get some more for the other bros. Maybe he sent it parcel post or maybe he had a sick boy/girlfriend but I think it's a common courtesy just at least tell me he didn't ship the bat. He said he was in the Navy which tells me he had some type of integrity but I may be wrong here. Again sorry for the long rant but BUYERS/TRADERS be careful.:eek:

    My question there is for how long:rolleyes:

    Seriously, have you contacted the MO company? Verify if that bish has been cashed and what their protocol is for potential fraud... eg will they stop payment on it and allow you to recollect if necessary ;)

    i dont think he has sent the MO yet since he has gotten no proof that the bat has shipped....i could have misread though.

    Personally, I thought the whole thread was a joke from the very beginning. I mean a $170 OG Flex in great shape? C'mon. I seriously thought a member had created an AE and was toying with the Easton hoes. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you ReyII but when the dude advertised the bat as an OG the proceeded to describe it as an 08, then back tracked on his description, you should have known something wasn't right. The fact that you did not ship the MO tells me you kinda had doubts.

    [ He sends me a PM on the 25th of June.

    His buddy tells me that Trantula aka Tommy Capone is at a tourney in Connecticutt for a week.

    I was in constant contact with him from the 25th thru the 30th so I don't believe he was at a tourney. I am out a few bucks from this guy as well.

    Also the 25th was the day he sent me pics of the demarini he is supposed to be selling me so I don't see how his roomate said that they packaged them and put them in the mail. He didn't recieve my M.O. until the 30th.

    You might want to start a thread about him. I sent you the pm with his number so blow that thing up. If you have any problems, I have a few friends in NY that will stop by no matter where it is.;)
