Can Anybody Contact Impending Doom?
« on: September 10, 2020, 10:07:27 AM »
Hey BR, fam. I hate writing this, but I don't know what else to do.

I sent Impending Doom $115 for a NIB 900 Global ball back on June 4th, and he still hasn't shipped it. He gave a few reasons as to why (didn't get a chance to visit his storage bin, problems with his kids), and I've been patient with him - pandemics are hard and I understand everybody's got their stuff to handle. But 3+ months is a bit much.

I tried PMing him multiple times, but to no avail. I sent him an email earlier today in hopes of getting a response, but at this point I'm feeling like I was had. If anybody knows him, or has a phone number I can use to directly contact Doom, that would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: changed 5+ months to 3+, because I struggle with counting.

Well itís only been 3 months if you sent payment June 4.....but that is waaaaay too long. He just posted in the Motiv VIP thread on September 1 so heís been around. Hope this gets resolved.

You're right - it's only 3 months. And math is my strong suit, lol

Yeah itís all good. 3 weeks is too long let alone 3 months. He was on here last night according to his profile in the last active part. Any way for you to recover the payment and move on?

Hate for it to be dealt with this way, but maybe starting posting in the threads he is posting in and ask for him for contact/replies.

Could it be that Impending Doom is having BIG PROBLEMS? He was an 'every day' poster here and suddenly NOTHING .. I think that's quite unusual!

Using noodles June 4th date - Doom has posted 57 times on here since Noodle paid him. If you have time to post on here 57 times - you have plenty of time to ship one ball - so I wouldnít buy that excuse.

Yíall are way to soft on a regular poster stiffing someone. If you donít have time to ship a ball you have time to issue a refund, unless youíre a deadbeat.  And after 3 months with no response to PM or email the deadbeat label has been confirmed. The surprising thing was the OP waiting 3 months before calling them out.

Hopefully it was paid with PayPal goods and services and not friends and family so a claim can be filed.  Never send f&f.

I am surprised. The guy was a regular on this forum with 6,000 + posts. I had no dealings with him, but from reading his posts, I thought that he was OK and knew the sport pretty well.

Lets be honest though.  He chose "IMPENDING DOOM" as a screen name for a reason.  A generally positive guy and someone who is happy in life and trustworthy probably isnt picking that kind of screen name.  But I could be wrong.  In fact, I hope I am wrong.  What this site needs is a seller and buyer rating like Ebay does.  That would probably help take some of the risk away.  For the most part we all get along and want to help each other out from a bowling standpoint.  But at the end of the day, how many people would trust me with more than $100.00 if you have never actually met me before?  I am in no way suggesting Noodle messed up because he didnt.  Impending Doom needs to be held accountable.  I hope and pray that he comes on here, swallows his pride, and owes up to what he did.
