thanks Julian, I don't know what to say, I simply hit reply when responding to your emails and I used the same email addy with UPS.
Regardless, I too am glad this is getting resolved and I am fulfilling your order.

Regards,

Todd

Will email you in a while. Dealing with a malware issue that has my email send ability hosed up at the moment. Kinda explains why others have not received messages I've sent.

Thanks,

Well since I paid with PayPal and through "friends" and family I'm screwed.

For those carbon lovers out there....there is a possibility that Mark Arsenal, the founder of Fatlace and the guy that brought RWB to the US may bring this next!

Todd,
An update on mine would be appreciated. You had said it would ship early this week.

Are there others also waiting on items from Todd? Has anyone been in touch with him? Has anyone received anything from him lately?

I've been patient with the delays in receiving two carbon hoods, but he's suddenly gone radio silent. No response from messages left on his helion.com, gmail, and voicemail. I have a credit card chargeback option available, but would much prefer for this to have a happy ending.

Todd, you were logged into pelican just a few hours ago. What's going on?

Nick,

Bear with me. I too would like to see a happy outcome for all parties.
I owe you and several others a call and a status update. I'll reach out as soon as I have a moment to clear my head.

I'm traveling for day job at the moment and trying to keep a handle on the back orders. It's a challenge.
I haven't gone radio silent on purpose.
I'll get back to everyone as soon as I can.

Thank you for your patience,

Todd

Glad you're alive! I'm understanding of just about everything, except silence. Send me an update asap please.

Todd,
I would also appreciate an update. My patience with this is coming to an end. Our last communication by text was that the hood would ship last week. I've texted you and have gotten no update. Communication is key but follow through on your promises is even more important.

If I were you, I'd get your money back from the credit card company and then have Todd ship COD.

^ This.

It took me 5 months to get my deposit back after being told initially it'd be a few days. This was with near weekly ignored phone calls and emails from me to Todd.

It wasn't till I told him I would share my story with the forum that he replied, and even then, I was given excuse after excuse from him losing a contract for Singer, to having his ID stolen, to having his employee being ill then leaving - the BS never ends

He was quick and prompt to reply to every phone call and email prior to sending payment. After payment? 2+ weeks to reply back with some other excuse.

Strongly advise all buyers if you can initiate a PayPal or credit card chargeback to do so. It's not his first time doing this.

I think there are two parties at fault here: One of them is Todd, and his failings have been laid out in explicit detail.

The other, however, is Pelican themselves. Pelican REFUSES to allow other vendors to hawk their stuff on this site via threads, and many such threads get shut down. I know, because someone started a thread on my rebuildable piston squirters and all I did was respond, and the thread was subsequently removed because it felt salesy in the opinion of Pelican.

By not encouraging outside vendors to pay for a vendor account (Like over at Rennlist), Pelican allows some of these fly by night folks to slip through the cracks and burn customers rather than making them full fledged vendors who are accountable to Pelican.

Rennlist has many faults, but one of their successes is closely monitoring sales activity. There, if you are selling something - even stuff you made yourself in your garage, you are a VENDOR, plain and simple. And Internet Brands will yank your stuff if you get too many complaints. Its not a huge amount of protection, but its better than the ZERO protection and accountability that Pelican provides by allowing black marketers to flourish within threads with titles that don't provoke further inspection by moderators.

Pelican needs to step up and patrol this. It's not possible to submit every last item to a Pelican buyer for review and inclusion into the online catalog. But they can regulate small, cottage industry sellers like Todd.

Still waiting for my hood

I did get a text message with a picture that "mine" was crated and ready to ship last Friday. Messaged him Monday on shipping statues.. Nothing replied as of yet.
