    Really? I have an email from you stating it was YOUR mistake. I never asked for 18ft. You have no business on this boards if you are going to treat others this way. Why don't you provide tracking from the ORIGINAL shipment you scumbag? You won't because you don't have it.

    I say - back to original plan.
    1. Contact his coach and University
    2. Contact admins of TT and ask them to ban him from doing business here.

    Unless tracking info is provided.
    Also, i own 2 businesses and also have a full time job. Any package that i send through my business accounts is being tracked automatically and tracking is available as soon as it is logged to USPS system. Also, all packages are automatically insured up to $100.
    And besides, where is the package? Are you telling me that Canadian postal service lost 2 packages in a row??? COME ON! What are odds of that happening? Or do you think you are the only smart one here?
    I wanted to think that you are a good person and just made a mistake by being irresponsible but, after reading your replies.....Man.....It is just so pathetic.
    I mean, think about it - you are putting your good name and reputation on the line over lousy $100(or less)??? Is this what your good name is worth to you?
    I give you my word, that , IF, only IF, God forbid, something like that ever happened and i was in your place, i swear, i would pay the guy double the money just to protect my name and reputation.
    But, that is me. Different people have different values in life. To me, my name and reputation is worth more than money. To some, their good name is worth just lousy $100.
    PATHETIC and SAD.

    . I am happy people read my post thoroughly this time.
    . Back to case with Harry, you made a lot of firm conclusions after getting info from Harry, but none from me. This is called one-side judgement. A judge can't do the right job if he/she doesn't listen to both sides. I've never said Harry was right or wrong, it wasn't the purpose of my post. Listenning to one-side evidences then made the conclusions, that meant that you assumed Harry was right and I am wrong from beginning. Otherwise you at least asked me if Harry's statement was correct before you came up with some conclusions. That was what i called "a court without justices"

    Canada Post did not offer tracking with the method that I chose. Express shipping was the only choice with tracking, but was extremely expensive. I have already lost one racquet, and it looks like I have lost 2 racquets, which is a very unlikely situation. I am still willing to pay Andrew back for his loss. After I sent the 2nd racquet, no communincation was done on his part to say if he had or had not received the racquet. If he had simply sent me an e-mail saying he has not received his racquet, I would have gladly sent him the money. It makes no sense for me to make up these stories of me sending racquets that are getting lost in shipment, and in the end for me pay for the racquet.

    On the oversea tracking matter ONLY, I agree with kirster123. I did shipped few times oversea without tracking for saving-money purpose. One happened horribly. I took me 6 wks or more. I have to refund since i couldn't prove i shipped. 2 days later, the buyer received the racket and refund back. If the buyer say never got the racket, i hell know. Those who don't know about this, should come to usps and ask. Attention folks! Don't assume things from your OWN knowledge and come up with conclusions.

    As I said earlier it's now been three weeks since you ‘resent’ another racket and I still haven't seen it

    here are the facts

    - I sent you 3 emails to follow up whether you sent your racket with no reply (yet you were definitely online active on these forums during that time)
    - I sent you a threatening email and started this thread finally there was a response saying you were busy and the rackets been sent
    - You were not able to provide a tracking number or copy of a receipt
    - I get an email from you telling me you’ve received my racket, and somehow the post office called you regarding a package that that is not tracked saying it’s been lost and you’ve sent another one exactly the same condition
    - Again no tracking provided
    - 3 weeks after that still no racket..

    and again I stress it's not until people start tarnishing your reputation that you make a show...

    what do you suggest is fair outcome to this?

    . Kirbster123, you don't have tracking, it is your fault as I did. You should refund by now. Late if at182 get the racket, he will refund and keep the racket or just return the racket. It is my opinion and it was my own experience. The only difference is i communicated very often so the buyer always felt secure.

    Our fiend Kirby claims that Canada Post called him to tell him the parcel was lost. (No doubt a first in the history of a national postal service.) When asked to provide a tracking number for the shipment(s), Kirby responded that tracking was not available for the level of service he selected. (That latter claim seems to be true. I took a look at the Canada Post website and services with tracking are very expensive on international shipments.)

    However, how would the Canada Post be able to determine a parcel is lost if there in no tracking number, and therefore, no way to trace the parcel's status? Do they have clairvoyant postal workers on staff to monitor untraceable parcels up there in Canada? Do these psychic postman somehow envision that a parcel is marooned on a deserted Pacific isle and then immediately dial up the sender of the tracking-less shipment to inform him of his parcel's sad end? I never before realized the incredible level of service the Canadian Postal Service provides to our dear neighbors to the North. I am mightily impressed, indeed.

    To at182: Based on the terrible communication, the lack of tracking numbers, or receipts, for shipments real, or imagined, and Kirby's prior dealings here (e.g., with Azurri), I regret to inform you that, in all probability, you've been scammed, mate. And although it seems more likely than not that Kirby didn't actually ship anything, we still hold out a shred of hope that Kirby, as is his pattern, blew off shipping the racket for several weeks, then finally did ship it at some point and it is merely a little tardy in arriving in Oz. But, frankly, it isn't looking so good and I'm not getting a warm fuzzy feeling that you are ever going to receive the racket.

    Perhaps, if you contact the Division of Clairvoyant Parcel Locators of the Canadian Postal Service, they can telepathically provide you with the GPS coordinates of your lost racket. Or, maybe, they will call you if you summon them with your thoughts. :)

    The public flogging Kirby Mendes has taken via this thread has, at least, enticed him to finally respond to you in some fashion. I hope he is swift enough to see the value in sending you a paypal payment to reimburse you for the racket (plus shipping) that you sent him in trade for the now much discussed racket of unknown whereabouts. By doing so, he could remove some of the tarnish that clings to his name at present. (Lest he become a permanent inductee in the TW Classifieds Rogues Gallery inhabited by the likes of Charles Nyugen, Trevor Neumann, et al.)

    to have a tracking number for an international (europe, asia) package the size of a racquet using canada post costs more than the racquet itself. it's prohibitively expensive. since most deals are done including shipping and buyers don't usually want to pay more for tracking that leaves regular post as pretty much the only option. i have only shipped racquets twice this way but i make it very clear that as soon as i leave the box at the post office i'm not responsible. i'll scan the receipt and email it to the buyer but don't bother me after that.

    and WRT canada post calling to say they lost a package? if they did that all the time they would go broke from all of the 1-800 fees they would have to pay. some unionized lazy bugger is going to take the time to search for a package that doesn't have tracking, find the senders telephone number, and call to say sorry? that's the best one i've heard. EVER.

    kirby's bull about having a ventire one account and the post office contacting him is exactly that - bull. all venture one does is allow you to save 5% on shipping costs when they scan your card. you still get the same service level as any other person who uses canada post. it's just a little cheaper with venture one. i've had racquets lost by canada post when i have used my venture one card. no one ever called me to say it was lost. you have to call with a tracking number and if they can't find it they refund your money.

    in fact, venture one only allows you to save on international express post and courier - the only 2 methods that have tracking. the post office won't even scan your card for a discount on regular post international shipment. so if they never scan your card how are they going to know you sent an international package.

    i've had a venture one card for years. here is the program in case anyone wants to check it out. http://www.canadapost.ca/business/intsol/sb/ventureone/benefits-e.asp

    and while canada post is pretty bad, even they will not lose 2 items sent from the same person to the same address.

    PURE BS.

    Based on posts #67 and #68 my gut feeling was correct. Kirby is not telling the truth.

    Kirby, send him reimbursement for his racquet (fair market value) since you've no intention (nor did you ever) of sending him what you agreed upon nearly 6 weeks ago.

    God this is pathetic when someone tries to lie and scam only to get caught up in their web of deceit.

    So, did you refund him the money yet????
    I am sorry but, i do not believe one word you are saying. You are lying out of your ***.
    As many posters here stated - IF there is no tracking, how does Post office know package is lost? And do you think they have nothing else to do but, call everyone who's package is lost???? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
    You must really think that people here are idiots or something.
    Even Tennis2001 says that you should refund by now.
    I am telling you, after reading your lame responses, i want to contact your University and coach myself and just tell them what is going on so they know.
    Refund the money and stop this nonsense.

    . Whatever i called, maybe it is inappropriate, but i did provide the true pictures and never lied or made up things, "$185 for a brand new AG100". Think careful before typing. Distorting the truth is harmful and God won't accept it (according to the bible)
    . Since my last responses, i haven't used any uneducated words but you still keep doing so: GARBAGE, FREAK... Your communication only survives ONLINE. I guess you don't have a spouse, that's why you don't know how to control your language, unless your spouse is the same type.
    . Stop saying "I don't, I won't sell or buy from you". If i am not wrong, I have never had any transaction with you before. Lucky me!
    . Remember I already listed my references up, and will do every 2-3 days instead of others in "small group" do. I am very confident or even don't worry with what people think about me so you shouldn't worry about that as well.
    . Last, no uneducated words i have used so far!

    Listen, i do not know who you are and after communicating with you, i am really glad that i do not know you.
    But you should stop acting like you are. It will get you nowhere in the best case scenario.
    If you ask my opinion about you - i would say that you are annoying, extremely boring and anal. But that is just my opinion.
    As for this threat - you should really stop playing your games. I am just giving you a good(in my opinion) advice and expressing my opinion.
    If you think, that you are really smart(which you may be, highly unlikely though) and will continue to play your stupid(IMO) games without consequences......Well...think again.
    In a day or two someone will complain to moderator, then someone else will as well. And guess what is going to happen? Do you really need it?

    Thought my last response was the last but... Look like your thread/threat this time sound "so angry", that made me come back. And sound like your heart was beating horribly and your brain was thinking aggressively. Psychologically speaking, you seem to belong to Type A behavior/personality which is described as hostility, competitiveness, time urgency, multi-tasking, insecure about their status & feeling driven. Type A individuals are often described as "stress junkies", and tend to coronary heart disease. Hope u learn something from this.

    Now i am certain, that you need to seek professional medical help ASAP. I hope you find a good psychiatric facility around where you reside, so they can help you. Because you really need to seek professional medical help immediately.
    God, i hope you are not married...

    You are very patient person.
    I would take action by now.
    You have all the info man. It is up to you what to do.
    I would at least get him out of this site so he does not rub other people.

    All,

    Thanks to all who have given advice and helped with the matter, just wanted to let all of you know that it took a while but Kirby honored his word and paid a fair replacement cost of the racket plus the cost of my racket shipping cost.

    Note to myself - do the necessary homework next time and check references...

    Thanks guys without the assistance of the TT board I doubt I'd be any closer to a resolution that when I'd started. It's the good community here that makes the system work.

    I can only hope kirbster learns from this experience as well.

    Hey guys, I know this thread has been dead for awhile, but I'm currently dealing with another guy named "Kirby mendes" under username "elahn.pogue"

    He is from boca raton, fl. I'm just wondering if anyone has any info of a possible connection and I do hope they are not the same person.

    Last we heard, Kirby still resides outside Toronto in daddy's house and is/was attending college a a smallish private college in PA.

    I would be very careful of anyone named Kirby Mendes. Good chance it is the same kid.

    EDIT: After a little digging, 99.99999999999999999999% chance it is our old fiend Kirby. He apparently is no longer at St Francis U but coincidentally he had a teammate at St Francis named, wait for it, Elahn Pogue.

    DON'T DO THE DEAL !!!!!!!!!!!

    EDIT2: It is Kirby. He is in Boca all right. Now attends Florida Atlantic. Probably got booted from St Francis.

    PFChang please post the email he is using now. elahn.pogue@hotmail.com ?

    Yeah that is it. I have to say I was a bit suspicious. He was a bit lacking in communication and on the day he was supposed to ship. I emailed him awhile back today saying that I'd like to work with him (before I knew he was this Kirby) but I have yet to hear from him. I guess I'll see what he says and go from there. It's kinda sad but I could use the racket he was gonna trade me lol:)

    Under no circumstances do a trade with Kirby.

    And if you do, don't come crying to me when he rips you off. :)

    The only reason the OP in this thread got his money back was because I gave him Kirby's dad's email address so Kirby knew if he didn't refund the OP, there would be hell to pay with Daddio.

    He never did. Did you read the thread?

    Kirby told him he shipped it (without tracking) but that the Canadian PO later called him and told him they had lost the package. :)

    Then Kirby told him he shipped a replacement to make up for the first "lost" racket. That one was also "lost."

    Anthony the Aussie (a very nice man) finally got a refund, but only after I gave him Kirby's dad's email address and phone number and Anthony threatened to contact his dad. When Kirby knew daddy was about to get involved, he issued a payment for the racket he received in the unfulfilled trade.

    He then came back to rip off a few other guys here and I finally said "enough" and emailed his dad. Suddenly, everyone received refunds and apologies. Funny how that works. :)

    He also did stuff like post phoney references for himself. And he once charged a guy extra for shipping to Canada even though he lives in Canada. He even went so far as to create a phony USPS tracking number. A real piece of work that one.

    This kid (21?) is a serial liar and about half a dozen people here had bad experiences with him under his various user names. I have no doubt he is here under some other name so if you are dealing with someone with a Markham, Ontario or Boca Raton, FL address be extra careful.

    I have noticed that scamming seemed to be way down this year. I think people are being a little smarter in their dealings and the would-be scammers see what happens to other scammers here and figure it isn't worth the grief. There were a couple of incidents where someone got ripped off (that whole Johnny5 thing for one) but for the most part, it seems that things were better this year.
