On April 21st Tristan Esteph posted the :takeit: on three comics I was selling.

I closed the thread on April 22nd and send him the invoice the same day.

After not receiving an answer, I sent him a reminder on May 7th

He contacted me on May 10th, apologizing for the delay and stating he would pay the day after, May 11th.

He did not pay and he contacted me again on May 14th asking me if I still have the comics.

The same day, May 14th, I tell him that I still have the comics and I am still waiting for the payment.

Still no answer, so on May 15th I send him another reminder, asking for payment within 24h.

Still no answer from him, so I sent him a new PM on May 18th informing him that if payment is not sent by May 22nd, I will nominate him for the probation list.

He did not answer my new PM and he did not pay.

:facepalm:  Getting tired of seeing deadbeats on the boards.  Let’s see if @Tristan Esteph has some plausible explanation for treating you like a chump.  Think your write-up is more than enough to have him added.

I think he's really young if I'm not mistaken.  Always seemed like a tire kicker to me than a real buyer. 

Sorry to hear you're stuck @marmat

Sounds like he did more than kick a tire.  It would be nice to hear his account.  He was pretty active here with his last visit showing this last Saturday.  

Good luck @marmat

He finally read the PM nominating him for the PL. Still no payment and no answer whatsoever.

It seems he does not care.

Sure does, put him on the list dang it.

Yet he's still very active on Instagram, asking about prices for books, etc.

And he had a post recently talking about getting outbid on something after he bid 3K.

I have 0 faith that he will step up and complete the transaction.

I only hope this will help other boardies not to deal with him.

Let me know when its 72 hrs since your PM notification and I will add him.

Yep, I called him out on it.  He says he's going to take care of @marmat but I doubt that will ever happen.

Salt in wounds - he just reacted to posts in this thread.  :frown:

I am not sure what to make of the "likes" either, I hope he does not think this is the Honour Roll or something. Losing the confidence of this community is a mistake not easily fixed unless you step up quickly to make things right.

Sending over the payment now . Sorry for the delay on the payment.  I'm 16 and yeah I know this took way longer than it needed to take . I over spent on ebay at the end of last month and have been working on that the last few weeks .

It’s good you are making it right.  Communication is key, just remember that in the future.  Going dark and ignoring messages is never the way to go.  If you needed more time to pay just ask and most people are ok giving some leeway.
