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.

Nope because yesterday the log in showed either 9/10 or 9/11 as the last log on for him.

Still doesn't mean that the computer wasn't off until today.

Stop making excuses trying to possibly justify a 3 month delay.  Excuses followed by cutting off communication is somebody gaming the system and taking advantage of noodle's mistake of sending the money by friends and family.  If it was truly a mistake any decent person would own up to their error and return the money AND send the ball.

Noodlejester .. anxious to know how you did with the PHONE CALL?

Nothing yet. I sent a text assuming it's a cell phone number.

Thanks everybody for the help - it's greatly appreciated. Worst comes to worse, I got had for $115 and learned my lesson to never use Friends & Family on PayPal.

When you paid by PayPal, what was the source for PayPal?  I use a credit card so it will be protected by them too.

Hope he's doing okay and everything resolves itself. He's been invaluable in helping me with 900G equipment, layouts and the such. No idea how to contact him, though.

I had the same thing happen with him about 9 months ago, but he did eventually send the ball so I'M sure he will send it at some point. actually took about 3 months also
