I posted an ad on the wtb board for a handcrafted 6.5 hzrdus yellow driver shaft.  Carolina Golfer ERAS responded saying he had one.  He offered me a price and I responded, “If this is a 6.5 handcrafted, you have a deal”.  So I paid the price plus shipping but received the standard non-handcrafted shaft (which I already owned).  Now the seller has gone completely incommunicado.  I paid using Venmo (he said he didn’t have a pp account).  What should I do?  Do I have any recourse?  Any help would be so appreciated.

I would check with Vebno to see what their policy is and I would add his username to your post. And invite him to this thread to explain himself.

Thanks.  Added username.  Also Venmo apparently doesn’t offer any sort of protection.  This is probably why he doesn’t use PayPal.

Not a good sign that there's a note in his profile stating "Delete this account", updated May 12.

You've gotta appreciate that he only wanted to screw you over part way...I mean, why did he send anything at all if his plan was to use Venmo to avoid recourse and then delete his GWRX account?

The mind of a thief is such a fascinating study...for me, of course, but probably less so for you (I've been cheated like this before and did not find it fascinating at all).

You know, I did think of that.  I had to ask him for a tracking number a couple days after I paid him.  He said he mailed it but they returned it to him because he got my address wrong.  But the next day he gave me a tracking number so I don’t know.

Truer words hath never been spoken.  I really wish I’d read venmo’s information page.  I’ll never use that service again.

Doubtful. Wanting his account deleted leads me to believe he’s going to gho5t the OP and run off with the money.
