Default Suppose I got beat on this one....

So sometime back I had bought some blue sparkle wrap off a seller from Ebay. Never had a bad dealing with the guy personally. Seems though ( which I recently discovered ) he was notorious for not sending the wrap out, or sending out the wrong item, giving grief, not giving refunds or sending the right item,etc... Ebay booted him. I happened across an ad on CL and realized it was him, not realizing all of this information and decided to get enough wrap to do a bass drum to match my Tempro Orange Sparkle toms. Well two weeks has gone by with no wrap, gave me a run around, because I was foolish enough to send money via the family / friends option I can't get the resolution center behind me. Though the lady did say she was gonna put in for a credit and give my story with it, but no guarantee. I dunno what has me more upset. The fact that I was dumb enough to send the money that, or that I was dumb enough to get taken.

Jay,

Look at it this way...we all make mistakes. The best we can do is try to learn from them. I hope you're not out too much!

We are too trusting but 99% of deals go good , well close to that any ways.

The same seller as the Santa Fe ad has an one in the Nashville craigslist. $69 seems like a cheap price and looks great too. Paypal fee would be about $2 at that price.
Hopefully the seller honors the deal and makes it right. If not I hope he doesn't remain nameless.
I believe that Ardrummer has used that type of wrap with success, but I'm not sure who he purchased from.

Jay,

I believe I've bought wrap from that same guy on CL just a couple months ago. If it is the same guy, the wrap is not a glossy, hard plastic wrap; it's that soft vinyl, sparkle fabric you can buy at craft stores for a few dollars a yard. The seller contacted me quickly to let me know the green sparkle which I had ordered was out of stock. He told me he would refund my order or substitute silver sparkle. Since I was just rewrapping a set of MIC orphans for one of my students, the color really didn't matter so I settled for the silver. When the wrap arrived, I was surprised that it was indeed the green sparkle I had asked for, but I was disappointed that is was that shiny, vinyl fabric we've all seen on eBay and CL.

In hindsight, I should have just ordered one of the nice economy wraps from Walopus. Let us know how your situation works out.

Mike
