I've experienced the exact same problem with Nelson back in 2016 and had to post here for Nelson to pay me.
Carlo still has not been paid, for those of you who know Nelson please contact him to make payment to Carlo.
: As many of you that know me, I am very straight forward, fair and
: honest. I always attempt to help whenever I can in the
: community, and my passion for this hobby has grown over the
: years from all the people I have interacted with and also met in
: person. The commonality of this collecting "virus"
: brings us all together and we might be a small group in
: comparison to other hobbies, yet I feel we are much stronger and
: true to the passion than various other hobbies.
: I have had an issue that I have been trying to have resolved for
: the last several months, and after many excuses, lies, etc...I
: had no choice but to bring this out publicly...
: I will let you judge the situation and what the "buyer",
: Nelson Tang, has done, and listen to any suggestions you might
: Keep in mind, I have met Nelson in person, and have bought, sold,
: traded with him before, with the knowledge of the fact that he
: is not the most "timely" person to pay, which I am
: sure many of you know, but being "late" on payment is
: not the same thing as lying about it....
: So let's get started...
: I sold Nelson two watches at the end of November 2018, and also
: shipped both to him without payment, since I had
: "thought" I knew him, as a fellow collector and
: friend. He advised me that he was going to wire funds the
: following week, which I assumed would happen, since that is what
: he promised. Week went by, and I followed up, and he said he was
: traveling and would send it that week.
: After several more attempts and no answers back, he replies back on
: 01/22, that he was "hospitalized" and was now back on
: his feet, will take care of the wire in a day or two....ok,
: fine...things happen in life, I get it...
: Again, days go by, no funds transferred, after several attempts to
: get a hold of him, he finally replies back on 02/01 that he was
: taking care of it on "Monday" and will send in two
: parts, due to some "online limit"....
: I can go on and on with this same scenario...ALSO keep in mind that
: throughout this fiasco, I had advised him several times that he
: should send my things back if he did not want them or didn't
: have the funds for them...
: I called him last week on the phone, and I think he accidentally
: picked up his phone, and he said he was at the "bank"
: making the wire as we spoke, since sending via PayPal was going
: to cost him too much, and he preferred to wire.... guess
: what...no funds yet...
: I apologize if I bored you guys, but hoping I can get some advice
: or help with dealing with this situation. Of course I need the
: funds or my watches back, but what bothers me the most with this
: situation isn't the money as much as the lies and also taking
: advantage of people like this.
