He shipped it via ground which takes a little longer. This is also why you did not receive a tracking number. It also depends on where he is shipping from as compared to where you are located.

waht you expected me to overnight it or something....i'm paying the shipping so i shipped it ground which takes 7-10 days. relax you'll get it!!!!!!!!!!

It is possible that shipping got delayed somehow (storms, truck broke down etc). I got something shipped from Oregon to Maryland from ebay and it took a little longer than expected. try to be calm

ugh.. I hate scammers.. I got scammed by a guy in MD a few months ago for 250 bucks. I hope you used paypal, cuz I made the mistake of sending a M.O. and I havent heard from him since.

I am not making explanations for anyone, just simply stating things that I have learned when shipping/receiving things via the internet.

Right away, people run the frigging mouths. Let the guy have a chance to send it. Maybe it was on back order, and he was mislead himself, maybe he was drop shipping it from the company that makes it or that he gets it from. There could be a million reasons, but all you weenies are quick to assume that you got "SCAMMED" grow up. Another thing, I buy mostly all my parts from larger companies, or people I know. If you did get sucker in, maybe you deserved it for being gullable. I make sure I know the company or have at least heard of them. If you went thru paypal, no sweat. after a reasonable time frame you will get yor money back. I am sure paypal doesn't just refund people cause it is a few days late. I posted something on here last week for sale, but am thinking about not doing it anymore, cause all you whiney babies will cry if the mailman stops to dog someones mom and your package is late.

Might want to read the post. It was off this guys car so it was back ordered or dropped shipped. You might try to read the post before spouting off.

This is BS. I ship stuff ground all the time, and I get a tracking number each time.
The longest it takes for UPS to send ANYTHING ANYWHERE in the CONUS is 6 days.
I'm not taking sides here, just pointing out that ground orders also can be tracked.
Hope it works out for everyone.
