    Does anyone know Vinkus on ebay?

    he won a plant of mine on there....and no contact, no payment....no idea what i should do. i dont want to file a complaint unless they are clearly not going to pay for the item. so does anyone know if he goes by another name on any of the CP forums?

    Did you email him an invoice through ebay? Sometimes personal emails can get bounced as spam. In any case I don't know him.

    This summer I had a guy order some succulents from me and they held the box of plants at his PO for over a month with repeated notes and delivery attempts but he never picked it up or was home. He did pay though he vanished after that. His PO returned the dead plants to me finally two months later. Four or five months later I still haven't heard from the guy. I still have his box of shriveled up plants just incase. You just never know, maybe the person died or got sent to Iraq or abducted by aliens...? lol

    Not sure if Andy will get mad about the subject matter of this thread or not so it might not be up long! lol

    It is customary to wait a few days. I would make a good faith attempt to contact him again and let him know that, unless payment is received within "x" number of days, the item will be re-listed at the very least; whether you file a complaint is another issue.

    There's always hunting him down like a dog . . .

    Makes it easy to understand why many sellers have a note on the bottom "If item not paid for in XX days, it will be re-listed". Also explains why some sellers act shocked when they receive payment from me within minutes of winning an auction. Seems simple enough > I want it > I bid > I win > I pay > I receive it quickly. Not a difficult process ...
    All the best,

    I'm the same way Ron. I always pay right away after winning an auction. It seems like a very difficult concept for some. I just had a buyer purchase an item, both their shipping address and telephone number are for McDonalds in TX. I've filed a claim to get my fees back. No contact, no payment. It's been almost three weeks.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    I have an email address, probably the same one you have. I'll PM you. I've personally never had any issues with him, but it has been awhile since I've had any dealings.
