A few weeks ago, I made a deal with a GTG member of this board. He has had multiple great deals, etc. Had to ask a few times for a tracking number after I paid for the bat, but nothing major. I got the tracking number and the bat made it out to my city. Labor Day weekend, it was updated by UPS as an open package with no contents. Of course, they threw away the box. Supposedly, UPS conducted an "investigation" and agreed to pay the claim. Of course, they issue the refund to the sender. Why they do it this way is beyond me, but I digress. In any event, I requested a refund of $300 as the bat UPS stole was a Synergy CNT+ with a receipt. I have tried contacting the seller with no luck. He hasn't been online in over a week. So now what? I am going to be giving him a call tomorrow (I tracked down a number through my contacts with him). What else should I do? I have tried keeping it off the board to this point as he is a pretty well-respected member, and I don't want to drag his name through the mud over a potential misunderstanding. But I really need to get a refund or even some sort of communication. What say you?
