View Full Version : RIPPED OFF BY A FILES MEMBER

Fellow FAL FILES member TRANSAM 79 has stolen $425.00 dollars from me.
Gerry list a G3 kit for sale here in the market place at the end of October. I posted a "take it" and sent a Pm to him for payment instructions. I promptly paid by Postal Money order as requested within 5 days and have been wait since. I sent two emails in November asking for shipping details with no response from Gerry. I had no contact with Gerry for a full month. On December 3rd I received an email from Gerry where he explained that his computer had been broken and he was not able to respond to my earlier emails. Gerry stated that he would ship on Friday December 5th and provide tracking info. How a broken computer prevented him from shipping the G3 kit is confusing to me as my shipping address was on the money order and on the letter sent with the money order.Why he needed two more days to ship my kit is also confusing but so be it. It has now been seven days since Gerry promised to ship and no kit, no response to my two emails this week. I have sent email via the files and his personal email with no answer. It is sad when anyone steals and worse when one member here steals from another member. My next step is going to be to file a criminal complaint against Gerry (Transam 79) on Monday.

I am at the point that I don't care what's up with him. He has had my money, my shipping address, my email ( both file and personal) and my phone number for over a month. His only action to date was on the 3rd when he stated that he would ship on the 5th -last Friday which he did not do. If he was having any problems other than a broken computer which had no effect on his ability to ship my kit he should have picked up the phone or let me know on the 3rd when he emailed me.. I do not believe I am asking for anything that is not reasonable.

Transam 79's rating is great. It is as if maybe something has happened to him and then a scammer got ahold of his handle to rip off File members. And to keep it going, the scammer uses lame stalling ploys to net in a few more bad deals. It happens.

Does anyone live near Transam 79 to see what his story is?

I don't know the guy personally.

Definitely not going to make any excuses for sloppy shipping.
Its something I'm really focused on when its my duty to deliver.

HOWEVER.

The guy has been on this board for a really long time.
First I've ever heard of such a thing in his context.

I can think of several ways the thing could have gotten sideways that do not include the elements of larceny or deceit.

May I suggest that you send a PAPER LETTER to him reminding him of what is agreed, and what is expected?

That way:


if he has ongoing issues with records on his computer, or
lost your address, or
lost contact with you through no fault of yours, or
thought he shipped it, or
delegated shipping to somebody who did not execute, or
got sick, or
got drunk, or
the cat ate his homework

Then maybe a paper letter will accomplish what electronic communication has failed to accomplish.

At least that's what I'd do before I went all 5-0 on him.

Lot of guys on this board aren't as young as they used to be. Myself included. I felt like a flaming asshat when I got dinged for being a non-paying bidder by a seller on Gunbroker. I was SURE I had paid. Remembered buying the money order... the whole nine yards. Searched heaven and earth, and finally found the damn envelope, with the money order in it, in the glove box of my car. WTF?!!!

I had driven to the post office, bought a money order, put it in a stamped, sealed envelope, and then "mailed it" by carrying it out to my car and putting it in the glove box instead of putting it in the freaking mail slot right next to where I had filled out all the information on the Money Order.

That's some stupid shit right there.

My bad.

I bought an AK kit from Gerry in Sept, took a bit to ship, but I received it as advertised within a reasonable amount of time (2 weeks IIRC). Seems to take a little longer that typical for him to ship and reply commo, but he has always come through to my knowledge.

Seems there are a few folks waiting on parts and/or commo and haven't heard from him since early Nov. So something's up, but I wouldn't jump to conclusions just yet. Gerry can be a bit slow, but I never took him for being dishonest. YMMV

I will send a letter in addition to the messages left on his home phone. However on the 3rd when he emailed me about his Friday shipping plan he made no mention of needing my address again.

Give him one last chance he hooked me up when I was new if memory serves me correct or pointed me In the right direction. I am trying to remember. But I say long term guy or one year. We all deserve a chance to make things right. Heck I just lost my PC total crash! I have a friend that recovers info for living and he is having a hard time getting my info. I even backed it up, to bad I backed up the virus that killed my PC. Pictures and video of my son I can never get back. I have the video of my sons first steps on his first birthday on there. I would pay a lot to have that info. All my firearms info is on there. Years of transactions who I sold things to. Scary to think how we have come to rely on stupid computers to hold our info!

I dealt with Gerry a few times. He was a little slow at shipping but i got my stuff. When my computer is broken I go to the local library to use one of theirs to read email and do buisness. People change look at Gunsmith Tony and I'm sure that there are a few other here that went to the Dark Side over the years.:uhoh::fal:

A little slow is two weeks. A month is BS. If his health is good enough to take pictures, post a for sale ad and accept money then it is good enough to ship the item. A broken computer excuse is just that an excuse. He has my address to ship to. Its on the letter that went with the payment and its on the envelope. He has blown his second chance when he did not ship on the 5th. he also has my phone number but I am sure his cell phone battery is dead . Excuses don't change the facts. If you are to busy to ship items then do not list them for sale and take money.

I am not commenting on this particular instance, but I can't understand why people don't ship stuff out right away. When I sell something in the MP, the item is usually in the mail the day after I get the money, unless it's on a Friday. In any case, I always try to communicate with the buyer if it is going to take longer than a couple of days to ship. That's just courtesy.

I have dealt with him before with no problems. Sure, he has been a little slow to ship, but it's happened to me also. Just last week I comitted to buying something here and told BLue Monster I was shipping him out some wood to work on. Then I had a job get delayed and another kicked off early, and a week of 14 hour days, and it took me a few days to get my MO mailed out and Rich's package still hasn't made it out.

The only reason I am concerned this time is that Gerry isn't comunicating, which is not like him. I am not worried that I am getting screwed over, just concerned for a fellow 'filer. Ok, it probably also helps that I am not waiting for these parts to get a project finished, so I am in no hurry.....

He's always been slow to communicate/ship but not a month. I too have
bought stuff from him here.

You could always have the local constabulary do a welfare check. I had a
guy have a heart attack and was in the hospital for a month, his BIL was
checking to see if he had mail and called me.

Send him a certified letter and make sure you get a return receipt mail to you when he signs for the letter. Detail your expectations and include copies of all your communications with him. Inform him that if he fails to respond by a specific date, your next action is to move forward with a criminal complaint against him.

I don't care what's up with him. He has had my money,

this is the crux of the biscuit, in all cases of failure to perform. Valid excuses include coma and death. Not "life is tough, woe is me".

10 calendar days or 7 business days, door to door for payment, and door to door for delivery, or there is a breach. And I consider that generous.

My comprehension is very good. Current actions carry way more weight than old history. Read Gerry's ad for re drilled issy lowers. Currently screwing three more members here who sent him money in the same time frame that I did. So to keep the record straight TRANSAM 79 IS CURRENTLY HOLDING MONEY FROM FOUR PEOPLE THAT HE HAS NOT RETURNED ANY CONTACT EMAILS IN A MONTH
AND HE HAS NOT SHIPPED ANY PARTS. Bernie Maddoff was a great guy right up to the point he was not. Then everybody got screwed. Read Marks post about shipping times.

I received a phone call from Gerry very late in the night. He went thru all of the excuses I expected from working a lot to internet problems and his car was broke .Explained how he was a good guy and that I had nothing to worry about he would get my parts shipped. When I asked why he did not answer any emails or return any phone calls in the past month his excuse was the his computer was broken. How this stopped him from shipping and prevented him from returning phone messages was not answered. When I asked about the Dec 3 email with a Dec 5 ship date promise he stated that he had to work on his Jeep.
I wonder if he used the money I and the other members here sent him for parts to pay for the Jeep parts? I again stated my intention of filing criminal charges in the matter and he stated that he would definitely get my parts out if I would not file charges. When Asked to confirm my shipping address so that we would not have any more problems his answer was :no problem I have your letter right here" A letter that has both of my email addresses, shipping address and my cell phone number on it. So much for any claim of not being able to contact me.
I find it very telling that only after I send a email promising legal action that Gerry has time to contact me and again promise shipment with tracking information before he went to work today at 11:00 am. A promise by the way that he has broken as it is now 11:30 in NH and no tracking information was sent. He past actions do not change his present ones. When I mentioned the people who were also looking for the Izzy lowers to him his answer was that he needed to "start working on them". Parts he listed for sale as done and ready to go. As I stated before if you do not have time to ship items in a timely manor (SEE GUNPLUMBER'S POST) Then you should not have the time to lay out the parts, take pictures and post a for sale ad. The motion that it takes weeks and weeks to ship items that you have been paid for is A LOAD OF CRAP. Anyone who thinks that is crazy. No one here would go to a store and pay for a new TV and then sit back and wait a month for the store to show up with it. If Brownells did not ship your parts in a month you I am sure the order would be cancelled and a refund demanded. Some people need to put on big boy pants and grow up. If you cannot ship it don't sell it period.

I can attest this statement is false. I recently bought a Champion 6 packer clays thrower. The day I bought it "in store" here at a major sports store in Tulsa, I ordered the "wobbler" optional unit. I had checked before going down to Tulsa that I could have ordered the wobbler unit on Amazon and had it delivery free in two days to my door. The thrower I was able to save mucho dineiro on it at this store. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, and to let them make another buck to boot and let them order it for me. After weekly calls and put-offs, I went back to store, and they finally admitted "We don't know WTF is going on. Got my money back and ordered it from Amazon, now $20 higher, and had it delivered free in 2 days.

Shit happens

Dishonest buyers/sellers are not a little deal. Nor are their apologists. That you don't consider it a big deal, is something that others should consider when choosing to do business with you.

Sure, in the perspective of one's entire life-time, an internet transaction is not of the same consequence as other life-experiences might be.

But this is here, and now, and it doesn't matter if it is $1 or $1000 - one is either dealing in good faith, or they are not.

He has made three shipping promises and broken three shipping promises. How many chances do you think he should get?? Your entitled to your opinion but I think that I have been way more than fair in waiting as long as I have. You got your money back and bought the item some where else. I don't have the money or the kit. I am making the trip to Chicago tomorrow the file the complaint.

The US attorney that I talked to told that the product purchased really did not Mattter to him just the fact that postal money order was sent thru the US mail and that no product was shiped. Theft is theft to quote him. If it was a firearm It would be a much bigger deal but it is just a RIFLE parts kit. FYI assault rifles Are select fire weapons not semi-automatic sport rifles .

Very true. We do have some of the stupidest laws and Elected officials is the county. However I was not even questioned about "rifle parts kit." He did not seem to care what it was only that it would be an easy conviction. I guess its a good thing to have a relative who is an FBI agent.

Got another late night call from Gerry last night (12:45AM)
I gave me a tracking number. I repeated the number back twice and he stated the I had it right. He then explained that he might not have put the mag release parts in the box but would ship them asap (right)if they were not with the kit. Great more delays. FYI the tracking number supplied comes back invalid. The US attorney filled out all the required paper work and I signed my statement today. He is holding it until Friday for me to give Gerry this last chance that he might have copied the tracking number wrong on the kit is on the way. If not Friday is the point of no return for me.

USPS tracking numbers will always come back as invalid until the first scanning at the sorting center.

Perhaps put in a way more comprehensible:


You haul your package down to the local post office
You pay for Priority Mail shipping
The machine at the counter generates a tracking number
You would think that the number would be "live" in the USPS tracking system at that very moment

You would be wrong in making that assumption


The clerk chucks your package in one of the bins behind the counter
The bins get hauled to the local sorting center - which may be far-off, depending on where this happens.
Package may not be scanned for a few hours at the local sorting center
When package finally does get scanned at the sorting center, only THEN does the USPS tracking number become "live" in the USPS online tracking system.
Best advice on figuring when is the outside-limit on when a USPS tracking number will become live in the tracking system is: give it 48 hours for the package to make it to the sorting center, and get scanned into the system.

Criticism sent!

You guys seem to be a little selective in piling on Transam and encouraging djfin with this thread. There is another thread with numerous complaints about another longtime FAL member (name withheld) not shipping stuff that was promised. Several folks had money on the line for 6-8 months and the thread postings mostly covered for the seller. This thread is just the opposite? And yes I have a dog in that fight. This month it will be 23 months waiting with at least a dozen promises of "I'm doing it now and it will be shipped next week".

Based on members recomendations I continue to wait. But what I see here is a member in good standing beaten down by a mob mentaliy. Give it a rest!

I'm rootin' for transam79, but he'll have to get his crap in one sock ricky tick.

Criticism sent!

You guys seem to be a little selective in piling on Transam and encouraging djfin with this thread. There is another thread with numerous complaints about another longtime FAL member (name withheld) not shipping stuff that was promised. Several folks had money on the line for 6-8 months and the thread postings mostly covered for the seller. This thread is just the opposite? And yes I have a dog in that fight. This month it will be 23 months waiting with at least a dozen promises of "I'm doing it now and it will be shipped next week".

Based on members recomendations I continue to wait. But what I see here is a member in good standing beaten down by a mob mentaliy. Give it a rest!
First to keep things completely accurate Gerry is currently screwing several other members here with his IZZY lowers for sale were he also took money has not shipped and does not respond to emails. Second If you and anyone else are willing to accept being jerked off for 23 months to get what you paid for that is your right. Please do not try to tell me that I should accept your opinion that this is in any way acceptable . I have been in business for myself for over 30 years now. During that time I have lost all four of my Grandparents , My Father , My first wife , My son , A younger brother and a younger sister. None of these things had ANY EFFECT on the shipment of orders from me to people and Companies that PAID FOR THEM. If you do not have the time to ship paid for items then you should not take the time to lay them out, Take pictures and post for sale ads. Taking new orders when you cannot ship the orders you have now is stupid. If your personal life is so bad that you cannot ship paid for items stop selling. When it takes the promise of legal action to get a response to emails sent thru both the forum and personal email and to phone messages left on his answering machine then the seller has way to many problems to be posting for sale ads. If a seller states that he will not ship for an extended period up front and I still make the purchase I have no problem waiting for the Item. But when a seller here or anywhere tells me it will ship the same day or the day that they receive payment then I am well within reason to expect them to ship when promised. Many years ago I was told that if I was old enough to say Bullshit I was to old to be taking it. I have followed that advise for way to many years to change now. I have gave Gerry three chances to honor his word and he did not. On the off chance that he copied the tracking number wrong or cannot read I have delayed the filing of charges until Friday. His fourth chance to honor his word as he promised that the package had shipped and would arrive no later than Thursday.

1) he isn't talking about an experience with transam79.

2) he isn't telling you to not be bent, or that what is happening to you is acceptable.

3) He is telling other people here to quit the dogpile, because some of those same people have been carrying water for another member who DID go 23 months (and counting) on his own project...

I stopped pre-packing items so I wouldn't have to re-pack and address when payment never arrives. I quit shipping early for the same reason. Yeah, shit happens sometimes. Even I can be slow to ship due to a rough work schedule, but this is different. Too many excuses being bandied about.

I shipped a package I sold on ebay one time and even though it had gotten to the destination on time, I had entered a number wrong on the tracking number box, then tossed the receipt like a moron, so as far as ebay knew, I never shipped it. Thank God the buyer was honest.

Yeah, I'm one of the Izzy buyers and not at all happy about him going dark for more than a month. But I'm still hoping he comes through and retrieves his reputation somewhat. And does the same quality job that got him the high rating in the first place.

I certainly understand the OP's anger given the much larger amount of money involved and something that should be ready to go out the door, while my lower needs some work done first.

I have no need to "chill" Expecting to get what I paid for in a timely manor is a NORMAL BUSINESS PRACTICE. And as I am not the only member here who is trying to get Gerry to ship items that he took money more than a month ago to fact that he is an asshole and a liar has be proven. If he had any reasonable reason to delay shipping he could have emailed or called. I also try to give people the benefit of doubt. after the second lie all doubt is gone

Check out the post about the Izzy lowers. Three people getting "Fukked" now.
And just because Gerry finally shipped the kit does not change the fact that he did "kukked" me around for six weeks. I have zero respect for anyone who lies and or steals.

Doesn't make any difference if Paypal clears your bank. If the dishonest buyer requests a chargeback, Paypal will take your money back from your bank account. This is why I no longer accept Paypal if I am selling an item.

Thank you very much for you kind offer. As I have a small window to get this kit built before Christmas I called HKPARTS explained my problem and paid for UPS red label shipping of the missing parts. They were able to get them out the door yesterday and I have them in hand now. While shipping that fast is not the norm for them they were happy to help with my time frame problem. Sometimes is pays to be a long time customer. Did my fitting and welding last night and it is going to RDO for the park tomorrow. Paint Sunday and test fire Tuesday. Cutting it short but still it will be done.

Dishonest buyers/sellers are not a little deal. Nor are their apologists. That you don't consider it a big deal, is something that others should consider when choosing to do business with you.

Sure, in the perspective of one's entire life-time, an internet transaction is not of the same consequence as other life-experiences might be.

But this is here, and now, and it doesn't matter if it is $1 or $1000 - one is either dealing in good faith, or they are not.

While GP and I will butt heads like 2 rutting Big horn sheep politically, this is how business should be conducted no matter what. This is not a backorder problem like you would get with a bigger company. The parts were on hand and ready to package and ship. Yes, it really is that simple.~ss

When I see negative feedback on someone I don't just look at the red numbers, I usually read the details of the negative feedback, then read the reply or replies to the neg feedback and make my decision from there. In this case, if djfin got negative feedback I would simply look over it because TRANSAM 79 has nothing to support his side of the story. It appears that TRANSAM 79 is going through some kind of trouble but his past record looks very good so I would give him a second chance but he would have to make things right with djfin, and anything sold by TRANSAM 79 from this point would be shipped to buyer before payment was sent.

I'm not going to loose it over the cost of a dinner out. I know that crap happens in people's lives that can cause issues like this. My best friend died years ago from a cancerous brain tumor, but before anyone knew he was sick he exhibited very erratic behavior for a couple months. My dads Parkinson's onset was marked by a bunch of strange behaviors, forgetfulness, temper tantrums and deep depressions. I have had friends go off the deep end with relationship problems....Have I mentioned my friend who caught his wife, in his bed, in his house, with his brother? While his 2 kids were playing in their room not 15 feet away...

Or TRANSAM could have just turned into a douche. Who knows? Like I said, I will just move on and hope all is well with him. If it's a personal issue, hopefully he will show back up and make it right.

To keep the facts clear the RAT BASTARD IS FINE. HE MADE LOTS OF EXCUSES FOR WHY HE DID NOT SHIP PAID FOR PARTS BUT NONE INVOLVED ANY HEATH ISSUES. His past actions may have been ok but his current actions make him a thief period. He still owes me the missing parts from the kit I paid for.He is currently ripping off several members here on the IZZY lowers that he posted for sale at the same time as the G3 kit.

YOUR OPINION OF WHAT I HAVE A "DOG IN THE FIGHT" WITH IS JUST THAT IT IS ALSO INCORRECT. TWO OF THE PEOPLE THAT GERRY STOLE FROM IN THAT THREAD HAVE CONTACTED ME ASKING FROM MY HELP CONTACTING HIM AND HOW TO GET THE RAT TO SHIP TO PARTS THAT HE TOOK MONEY FOR. FYI YOU DON'T HAVE A "DOG IN THE FIGHT" IN THIS THREAD OR THE ONE WITH THE IZZY LOWERS AND YET YOU FEEL COMPELLED TO POST YOUR OPINION HERE. WHY??

From your last post it looks like you are losing it.
IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU HAVE LOST IT. IF YOU THINK THAT IT IS OK NOW THAT GERRY STOLE FROM ME JUST BECAUSE I WAS ABLE TO BUY THE PARTS THAT HE SHORTED ME AND A FEW WEEKS HAVE PAST YOU ARE NUTS. I AM NOT THE ONLY GUY GERRY HAS STOLEN FROM HERE - CHECK BIG50'S POST. GERRY STOLE FROM HIM IN THE PAST ALSO. I WILL RESPOND TO ALL POSTS STATING WHAT A GOOD GUY GERRY IS WITH THE FACTS. IF YOU DO NOT LIKE IT TO BAD.

Going from name calling to potential slander.
WHAT LAW SCHOOL DID YOU FLUNK OUT OF ?? CALLING GERRY A RAT BASTARD IS ACCURATE AND THE TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENCE TO SLANDER. FYI FOR A SLANDER SUIT TO PREVAIL GERRY WOULD HAVE TO SHOW THAT HE SUFFERED DAMAGE TO HIS REPUTATION . GOOD LUCK WITH THAT.LASTLY YES I AM OK .

Here, it's sunny outside. Step away from the 'puter. You made your point. Why continue to dig? If it's all jacked up, that will come out. Screaming ain't going to change dick.

So, the rifle is up and running and it's all good.
I tried to get you to focus on the positive results but:

You are still online here keeping this thread going about a few missing parts.
Somebody offered to send you the parts for free but you refused.

You dont' have a dog in the fight on the rewelded lowers, but are you making it yours.

From your last post it looks like you are losing it. Going from name calling to potential slander.

RU okay?

I for one am glad djfin is doing us all the favor of a heads-up on this guy. To me, anyone who holds up a guy like this as a number one great guy and hides his actions under the rug is complicit in his dishonesty.
In what world is this "all good?":rolleyes:

And before you say I "don't have a horse in this race," I'm here to tell you that every member of this forum who might ever buy anything in the Files marketplace has a horse in the race. When you take up for a guy who is repeatedly ripping people off, you give the entire forum a black eye.

As I stated before I will respond every time someone tries to post what a nice misunderstood guy Gerry is and that I should "let it go" "move on" etc. And for the record the fact that " it's all jacked up" came out a long time ago.

if you don't like it stop reading the posts and go away. You keep complaining about me "beating my drum" but yet you keep posting unwanted advise for me that upsets you when I am unwilling follow your advise. You have stated your opinion several times now go away. I have no interest in your opinion.
