Angry Bum deal by murpheymichael

Murpheymichael put up for sale four 1.5" spacers for $100 plus shipping of $11. Seemed like a good deal, so on 3/10 I sent him $111.00 to his PayPal account. He was prompt with shipping BUT he failed to properly package the parcel, consequently the flimsy box burst open in transit and the lug nuts, which where part of the deal, fell out. I sent him a PM on 3/19 making him aware of the situation and asking him to work with me to resolve the issue. He PMd back saying that he had included 24 nuts, not just 20, but nothing about a remedy. I wrote back offering a compromise , but heard nothing. I waited 24 hours for his answer, checked to make sure he had visited the forum after I sent the PM and then sent another PM. Again, I check to see if he had visited the forum after I sent the second message and he had. Other than his initial response, I've heard nothing and it's quite evident I won't.

Transactions on this forum are principally based on trust and respect for fellow forum members. Murpheymike is ignoring me and hoping that this will just go away. I'm filing a complaint with PayPal hoping that he'll respond to me through PayPal mediation. In the meantime, beware of this guy and keep his sketchy attitude and lack of respect in mind should he ever offer anything else to us for sale.

Just read a PM from murpheymichael. Again, offered nothing but a brush-off. If he won't honor his contract with me, I'll pursue my claim through PayPal and hope we can reach a settlement.

Wouldn't it easier to just get some lug nuts? How many are you missing?

That's not the point. The guy poorly packaged the items and JeepJorge did not receive what he paid for. And is further inconvenienced by having to go out and buy the lug nuts.

I wish. It's the vaunted USPS which murpheymike used to ship the box.

Have you ever seen how the carriers treat the boxes? Lol! I ship stuff every day and pack darn good and they still manage to rip the boxes open. Anyhow, it seems it'd be easier to get the lugnuts instead of spending all this time complaining about it. I know it sucks, but life is short. Also, what makes the lug nuts special? The spacers on my rig use standard 1/2-20 acorn nuts. Just asking.
