Back in early Dec a forum member (dennisbar) Dennis Barvin needed part for a 696. I had parts that he needed and Emailed him with the price. He agreed on the price and I quickly shipped them the next day. Well, 6 weeks have gone by and I have not received one cent from him. He has replied to a couple of my Emails requesting payment, but no check has ever arrived at my address. BEWARE if you deal with the guy in the future.

Sorry to hear he got you with "the check is in the mail" bit. I would ship only if the money has been sent via PayPal. That way everyone is protected. If he doesn't get his stuff he has recourse through PayPal. It is almost a red light these days if someone doesn't have an account.

Although I agree with the above post, I understand how this could happen. Trust is a difficult thing. Take it easy on the original poster....he tried to do something good by sending parts fast.

OK, maybe you guys are right, I should have used PayPal. So, I'm giving Dennis Barvin a second chance, as I sent a PayPal request for payment today (Jan 1. If he pays up quickly, I'll let you know.

you should post this on all the forums. Complete BS by that guy, and its things like this that make honest transactions more difficult.
