25 days ago I msgd someone re: buying something they'd listed, offering the price they listed at. The next day, buyer responds positively and I immediately send payment which is confirmed with "I'll post (a couple days later) Monday"
A week goes buy and no items/contact so I PM a "no, issue, just a reminder if slipped your mind, still haven't received bits" - further 6 days until reply and very polite apologies with mitigation of xyz busy busy busy (again completely fine with me) and "I'll post this afternoon." I reply with "Thanks, no problem at all". Still nothing over a week later so three days ago I send "wanna just refund if easier?" and no response as yet. Historically active forum user and posted as frequently as 5 days ago. At what point do I post on this thread - think I'll try another PM and possibly reply (with subtle undertones of, ahem, the bits I've still not received) on the thread he last posted in before trying to get a response posting on here. Seem fair?
tl;dr - how long and many messages before I call someone out on this thread in a desperate attempt to get a response?
You were wrong to send money, should have made a gentleman's agreement.
(Sorry @Julian_Stock, couldn't resist. :) )
You're a gentleman to ask.
24 days is long enough. Call them out + PayPal dispute.
That's over three weeks to get an item to the Post Office. Ludicrous.
Unless they've been imprisoned or are in a coma, lack of communication and failing to post after that ammout of time isn't great. You didn't PayPal gift did you?
