FYI,

Mike Bonin has taken money from me and not delivered a custom made purpleheart body conditioning hammer.

This jacka s s took $50.00 from me on 06/22/2009 and told me that it would be 4-6 weeks until I have seen the product. It is the end of August and no product sent. He will not respond to emails sent.

I filed a paypal complaint at the beginning of August and he finally responded saying that he would not finish the work until I ended the claim. I ended it thinking I would get my product.

No such luck from this thief.

It seems to my ignorance that once I close a paypal claim I cannot reopen it and this thief has walked away and taken my hard earned money.

I just wanted EVERYONE to know what a scumbag this person is.

I received no updates as to the status of the product. I had to file a paypal complaint to get him to tell to be patient. Wonderful communication sklills and business practices from this man who claims to be a martial arts teacher.

Sorry but over 2 months to wait for a little piece of wood is nuts.

He seems to be totally unable to comprehend my being upset that its been 8 weeks and no product, no refund and no explanation.

I have no recourse but to inform EVERYONE to never purchase anything from this loser.

his ebay account is here (http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270336046744&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT).

Clicking on the link provided shows he still has a seller rating of 100%.

Is this because you retracted the paypal complaint?

Sorry - fairly ignorant on ebay since I've lurked but never bought.

Dale,

Can you provide a link to his school?

In the new EBay, you only have 30 days from payment to do a rating. This guy has 10 positive ratings out of 19 purchases, the others probably waited too long, waiting for him to ship a product that he never ships.

He claims in his listing that he has 983 of these available to ship!
