    So basically I have a problem, I bought a few nemesis prime's from another board member here, problem is I havent received them and I sent him my payment on Dec. 23, he says he shipped them out after new years and since he lives in Australia, said it would take a while to get them, but I'm wondering how long is too long. I talked with paypal and they said they cant do anything since its been more than 45 days, so I'm at a bit of a loss here, anyone have any ideas what I should do? I've sent the guy another email a few days ago but it says he hasnt been on the boards in about a week.

    I think just wait another week, and if it doesn't try and find another place to purchase what you want. I know that isn't good advice, but its least I tried.

    Try to pm him, if that doesn't work contact an Admin, at least they may be able to scare him. Hopefully this is a shipping problem, not a scam.

    Did you look up his trade ref before dealing with him? If not and he scammed you then there's nothing you can do.

    Is it lobes? He seemed/seems on the level. If you don't get them and still want some, then try casefresh.com. They're also in Australia, but I got 2 shipped ot he U.S. for about $43 apiece, which is really cheap. I say give him time to respond, he always responded to me (if it's him, that is).

    If they were sent by surface mail, it can take up to 10 weeks to arrive from austrialia.

    Okay well thats good then, hopefully they just havent arrived yet. I've done business with other sellers in Australia but its never taken quite this long, although I guess it could be due to any number of reasons.
