Re: FS: Jurgens Germany Strap & Bracelet Collection

Beware - Buy with Caution:

I ordered a strap made from the darker leather of the upper flap of Swedish Holster #13. I requested that my strap be similar to the top 2 shown to the right of the holster with the dark brown or black stitching.

Several weeks later I received a strap made from the much lighter section of the holster. I sent Jurgen a scan of the strap. He told me that the upper, darker flap of Swedish Holster #13 was no longer available and after a few more weeks he agreed to make another strap from a different darker material as shown on their US Holster #14.

Several weeks later he sent me a strap made from the darker part of US Holster #14. However it was made similar to the scan posted to the right with the 2 screws below the lug connection.

I returned this strap on 08-14-17 via. USPS, the same as I returned the first strap. It cleared US Customs on 08-14-17 and asked for him to return my PayPal payment, no more straps.
He claims he never received the second strap and refuses to return my payment. I filed a PayPal claim, 09-25-17, which he has subsequently disputed because there was no proof of delivery.

A while back he posted this same ad for his straps again showing Swedish Holster #13. I sent him an email and suggested that he take down Holster #13 so that no one else ordered it. NO Cigar!

The fact that he is still advertising a material that he says is no longer in stock makes me say: "Beware"!
