I saw this seller had been posting online for several days after completing sales.

This made me think the seller was trying to make a cash grab before junking his rcgroups account. It wouldn't be the first time someone who had be registered for a while 'ditched a bunch of buyers' at the same time.

If there's a legitimate medical problem, that sucks, but don't use a 'supposed' medical problem 4 days after a sale to claim to be a reason why you couldn't ship earlier.

Time for the seller to just refund the money, as has been requested by me through PMs, and via paypal.
It's a shame we don't think,(me included) to do this before we make a deal....I only buy from folks with at least a 35 TR,and I'm just too trusting,still.Following you statement might save us all some problems.You are right to notify Paypal.Good luck.

Sad if the daughter story is true, but if not he should have picked a more original BS story.

What next, a loser family member figured out ALL of his passwords?

I received my refund also. Not sure what to think about Sharon. He did not hesitate to refund my account. Thank's Nethole for the heads up.

5 days?? Stuff happens.. I mean you could at least wait a week. I know it sucks but seriously.. Life happens guys. By all means, file the paypal claim, I would just wait a few before jumping to calling people scammers. At least he refunded your money quick, I mean he didnt scam you if you got your money back that fast.

Sharonx is a great trader, we all have lives outside of rcgroups and stuff happens. Some people just haveore patients than others.
I just waited over 3 weeks on an item to be shipped because the seller was going through personal problems, stuff happens.
I guess having kids teaches you patients.

I got the item I bought...no problems. I asked Sharonx about the issue and he said his daughter was in the hosp. But all was good with the sale. I trusted him and let it go.....got my item at a great price.

Sorry bout your luck....if you hadent asked for the refund....you might have gotten a great deal on some great stuff at good prices!
