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?
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?
Surely only someone who was too trusting at the fact the seller had been a forum member for 7 years with 1K+ posts and a decent amount of trading and marking items as sold etc would send PayPal gift!!
