Unhappy Trouble with a vendor on this site

One of the vendors in the business classified area (wolfdancer) had a thread offering lace redwood blanks.
I sent a reply on the thread about it, got a pm with the amount a couple of days later, and paid that evening through Paypal.
I never heard that payment was received, so I contacted him asking if he got the payment on 3/2.
On 3/2 he replied that he got payment fine, and was sending out on 3/3 with other items for other people.
Since then, I have sent a few pm's, and went to his site, and called three times, leaving messages each time. I have always asked if something was wrong, which you can see by going back to the original threads. These threads are locked, so I cannot change anything, or inquire any more through them
From 3/12 to 3/18, he was never online under his handle, and is not responding to pms.
In this same period, there are four other people who are also asking the same questions. Now there are six people with issues on communications or delivery of product.
As I had a conversation with some of the moderators late last week, I held off putting this thread online. All of the thread generated by the individual in question are locked.
Over the weekend, and yesterday, the person in question was still logging in, yet still no replies to pms, or phone calls.

I would like to great warn others that there might be issues with any transactions and communications with the above individual

My beef is not about the non-delivery, but is about not communicating with his customers. If he has some issues happening, then say so, without going into detail, and I would have gladly held off saying/doing anything about this.

Sincerely
Jerry Sambrook

I noticed that his classified was locked but I wonder how many members still visit the ad, read just the first post, not knowing about the problem, then fire off a PM with their order and paypal information? It would be a shame for others to lose their money this way!

Jerry, I don't think Rodney is having an easy go of things here is a link to a post he made a few days ago, but I think he meant the 23rd instead of the 3rd I am sorry

actually the post say the 3rd of APRIL. By my calendar that;s a week from Saturday. Be patient guys.

I know Rodney has had some problems come out of the blue in the past, this may just be another spat of life.

To keep this from getting nasty, the date WAS EDITED by Rodney, so all parties are saying what they believe to be true. Ground-rules were changed.

I'm sorry, but publicly starting this type of thread in the first place is - in just my opinion - in poor taste. Probably not what someone who is having a rough go of things wants to hear or see.

This is the real complaint I have. He does still come here, so why not respond to the pms that are sent?

Jerry, I have dealt with Rodney many times before and despite him going through some hard times he has ALWAYS come through for me.

I think all Jerry wanted was a little communication. He had made numerous attempts to find out what was going on and received nothing. Jerry is very fair and had exhausted every option before he posted here. He has every right to post a review that states his opinion of what took place and he did it well.
