    It's absolutely relevant, I hope u didn't take anything I said as meaning different. I was just blown away that the link from here took me to another thread, that took me to another and another, and he's still allowed to conduct business. (Not mod bashing, they do fine) Yes everybody is entitled to a screw up, were only human. It's what you do after said screw up that defines your character.

    On Blade Forums, I'd imagine they do. Why wouldn't they?

    Too many good makers out there to gamble on one where you have to play the odds to win .

    Yeeeeah, if a guy on the other end of a deal outside the US starts spouting trash like "I'm not beholden to US Law*", I would put that guy on blast to the extreme, and make sure everyone was made aware of what a scumwad thing that is. That's essentially a statement of "I could totally defraud you and there's nothing you could do about it so stop irritating me or that's exactly what I'll do." That doesn't fly with me. Why is this guy still allowed to sell knives here again? I missed that part.

    It didn't fly with me either, which is why I posted the GBU thread, rather than just leave negative feedback.

    As for why he is allowed to sell knives here... that's above my pay grade. @Boru13 was directly involved here, so he's well aware of the situation. If Kosa is still allowed to sell knives here, I assume there is a reason. If I had to throw down a random guess, it would be that Boru's threat was (paraphrased) "Your sale threads are locked until this is sorted out. Pay up in one week or you're permanently banned." And it would be an issue to then ban him anyway after he does pay within a week? That's just my guess, and not based on anything factual.

    I have it on good authority that @19-3ben deserves fully all the trouble he's seen here. He kicks puppies. That being said, I'm glad to hear that this was resolved. Nobody likes puppies anyway.

    So where's the tracking? Forget all the payment/refund logistics, you still haven't given anyone any indication that you actually shipped the knife. 80% of your issues with this transaction could have been resolved with a ten second copy/paste of a tracking #.

    I'm not sure how you can justify not having money for a refund on a knife you never sent to the buyer.

    Sucks that this guy keeps screwing over good members here, or anyone anywhere really. Doing such things certainly won't help help with mental issues. Seriously, get some help.

    Just curious, do you only get depressed and stop communicating when you've failed to deliver knives or when you're asked to refund someone's money or do you get depressed and stop communicating when you take their money too?

    You seem to be suffering from very selective depression and communication issues, you should get some help with that and stop stealing from people while you're at it. You'll feel a lot better if you do.

    @Kosa_PL Are you following the thread? There are some really good questions here, and I'd be interested to get your take on them.

    Well, he's exhibiting the typical problems and litany of excuses that will lead to a complete and total default on any and all customers in the States, especially that "US laws do not apply to him". That alone would trigger me to NEVER consider business with him.
    If I were site admin, I'd consider a permanent ban on him just to prevent future screwings.
    That said, I know some of you guys just "want to believe" that YOU won't be the one he starts defaulting on, so you'll light your Benjamins on fire trying to get them to him as quick as you can.
    ...And then you'll show up here, wondering how it all happened...
