You know what? I am surprised those that might be close enough haven't just driven to his store, walked in with your invoice in question and just started taking things off his shelves.

Haha, that would work. What would he do? Call the cops?

"Hey these guys are taking things from my store!"
"Did they pay for them?"
"Well...yes"
"Bye"

If you've got an invoice, and he can't prove he actually shipped stuff to you, I don't think he'd have much of a case, police or no.

But as it has previously been pointed out, badmouthing TDZ is not what this thread is for - it would best be left to another thread, so that this may stay unlocked for people to add pertinent information.

Good point. Jokes laid aside.

What was the ultimate resolution of these complaints? Did everyone get their stuff, or refunds?

Lower rating ships or pays first, myself included.

He got away with it. Its the cold,hard truth. The PD or other authorities have bigger fish to fry then people stealing toy soldiers through the mail. Sad but true. All the reports, all the complaints.....absolutely nothing. Someone PLEASE prove me wrong. Show me this guy was taken to court, paid a fine, was charged with a crime, ANYTHING.
Thats why you must be very careful on who you deal with.

He got away with some, not with others.
Honestly, I think only the ones who deogged him even AFTER filing all their complaints are the ones who saw resolutions...again... I *THINK*...

I know that I got my issue resolved after going to the police, FBI AND Postal Service. He never had to be contacted by any of them. Once I showed him that *I* had contacted them, he miraculously and coincidentally returned from a FIFTEEN(!!!) day vacation, "found" my misplaced package in "the mall's mail room" and got it sent out to me.

Never again. From now on, my business goes to ORCLORD, CHAOS ORC or The Warstore (with the 1st two being my top 2 choices in no particular order).

Think about it. He got away with it. He paid no penalties and was only out of (some) of the orders he was already paid for. He even opened a new store. Where is justice?

It's really too bad, and I don't think the guy who won the Dark Angels box has ever posted here again...leading me to believe it was a false post all along.

What is this Orclord you speak of? Tell me! I must know...
Trading Guidelines:
1. Lower rating ships first - even if I am purchasing.
2. If you agree to buy something, you have 72hrs. in which to pay. If payment is not received in 72hrs., I will automatically post a Non-Payment/Backout thread.
3. Refs are left upon positive receipt of goods, NEVER beforehand!
4. I accept Paypal & USPS money orders and charge for shipping AT COST. I make no profit from it.
5. I trade NIB/new models at retail.

Orclord is a regular poster here and owns http://www.jlminiatures.com/

I knew that he did painting, didn't know he did an online store.

Interesting........

Direct quote from the above referenced website:

We also have open gaming tables, and our local miniature hobby shop
(located in the back of Aardvark Tattoos studio) where you can also find
a wide selection of Warhammer miniatures, lessons, and painting supplies.
... and EASY to deal with.

They don't have much of a choice when it comes to being brick and mortar, you don't get a lot of positive inflow from reference's pissing people off.

Please stay on topic. While I know Tim appreciates the references, this really isn't the most appropriate place for it. :-)

He dragged by own name through the mud in more ways than one before giving me a refund, but never followed through on sending me the minis i'd ordered regardless to 'make good'...but thats an issue i've already beat to death, buried, and laid flowers on its grave.

Justice apparently doesn't live wherever he does, or it would've caught up with him a long time ago.

Looks like datadep5 & i were right after all, if thats the case. Imagine that.
