    Source is caught?!

    I used to get my stuff from a reliable source in Europe. Last time I had contacted him before ten days to get the stuff ready and he replied to me. Then, I paid through Western Union but he never got the money and never replied to me since then. It is 5 days since I paid him and I emailed him 4 times but no reply! Is it possible that he got caught?

    I still can get my money back since he didn't get them but not sure whether I should wait for more few days before that.

    it's possible, but you can't know for sure yet. Be patient, but if you're worried take the money out. If he is ok, tell him the story and send the money through again (granted he has a legit excuse for taking so long, and doesn't sound shady).

    At least the money is still there. So he didnt rip you off. Bro I have waited any where from 5days to the longest 7 weeks to get gear. It may take alittle more time.

    Thanks, I just was worried because he is a reliable source and didn't want to lose it. I had thought he got caught or something because it was unsual to delay it for more than two days.

    See I see it totally different. If communication is there than he wouldnt be flooded with emails. It doesnt take but 30seconds to check your email especially if you know that your "business" relies on this. Even if you are sick, your kid is sick, your dog is sick, etc there arent too many excuses as to why you cant take 30 seconds out of your day when people have lots of money riding on your ass. Too often I think sources take full advantage of the fact that they have you by the balls with your money and therefore can take as much time as needed to reply and ship. Too many people get scammed lately for me to just sit back patiently and wait for days and weeks without a response but then again I try not to deal with deadbeat sources so I havent had to deal with this in quite sometime. Although I did once wait 2 months for some ICN's a couple years ago which chapped my ass nicely.

    You are absolutely right. If anyone of you guys was in my situation, I'm sure you would have done the same thing too.
    As I said, he used to reply to emails within few hours and ship me the next day after I pay and that was the reason I thought he got caught.
    If am a source and start getting emails from a customer who has been with for long time, I'd reply and ask him to wait for few days. If you are a source and stop doing business with everybody then, you are the loser!

    I still stand behind my statement. Sources dont hire full-time customer service reps to deal with paranoid customers trying to obtain illegal items. Respect them and their time, and im sure they would do the same to you.

    Well, the respect should be mutual, not only from one side. Specially when you are his customer for long time, not one month or two. When you promise your customers to update them with information about their orders by some deadline, you should do so regardless of what items you are dealing with.

    I have no problem with that and agree. But it would aggravate me if my email acct was flooded with emails that are unneccessary.

    you were worried about him not going to WU to pick up funds in the 5 days you gave him though. You need to have more respect for his safety. Im sure he has plenty to lose (risk) just by taking your business. I have no clue who this is, but generally, they cannot go pick up funds 10x/day at the drop of a hat. Let him do his thing, cover his ass (as much as possible-if he is smart), and he will deliver. He did deliever, correct?

    You are right. My concern was NOT about the money pickup. As I said, he is a reliable source and once he picks the money, he sends the order within one or two days at most. My concern was that I didn't hear from him at all and I thought he was caught. Nothing easier than configuring auto email reply telling your customers that you are busy and it would take more few days to process the order. This way, no one will flood you by emails.

    I understand that but look at the most popular and reliable sources. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX- not needed, Vette., etc They all have excellent customer service and turnaround which makes people trust their products, and their money. And if anything goes wrong they make d*mn sure they resolve it with extras. I dont think twice about sending my money to any of the above mentioned sources because of their track record and solid communication. All it would take is to have a good chunk of change in Evocash or be scammed a time or two to make you a little edgy when dealing with non communicating sources. I guess I'm a bit anal when it comes to AAS/Supples hell I for one wont deal with AR-R because of that ridiculous $10 shipping fee. I know it doesnt cost $10 to ship and no other research company I deal with has a stupid fee like that. If you need to make more money then make up for it in product cost dont hide it until check out.
