Anyone ever have any issues with Jim ? Story starts out I contacted him about working over a brand new never run hutzl 372 clone . He answered an was a very pleasant person to deal with, his YouTube channel is constantly having new content uploaded an the way his saws sound an run when completed seem to be of good quality... so he an I discussed shipping the saw to him ,the work that was involved in making it run better then stock sn so on sn so forth . I shipped the saw promptly to his home adress . He contacted me Jan 21 my saw had arived. Feb 7th he then contacted me my saw was done an he was uploading a video to his YouTube channel of it cutting ... all seems well I’m thinking at this point he had sent me pictures during the entire process showing the progress. PayPal payment was sent friends an family promptly the next day. Feb 8th at this point, I was figuring waiting a solid week anxiously awaiting to get my saw back. First week went by .... no saw I texted an first reply from him I received stated he was having trouble with a broke down vehicle in which he needed to transport the saw package to post office. Ok I understand things happen so I waited another week .... in which time I texted during receiving a message back from Jim from said Cj saws stating there was a billing error with in his bank account that resulted in some chain reaction overdraft fees, ..... ok at this point this is an issue on his part , has nothing to do with me my payment went through on the previously stated feb8th. So I text him asking where my saw is an he responds very quick to try an put blame on me! One of his texts and I quote” he asks me what I’m trying to pull here”! I texted back you have my saw and my money the saw was completed on the .7th of February an payment was promptly sent a day after!!!!! Seconds after that text the phone rings it’s Jim.... he gives me this sob story about how the banker is the only oerson that can straighten out his financial issue an to bear with him, in which time he clearly states my 230$ payment for the work done to my clone saw still resides within the PayPal account it was sent to , he states if he would have deposited it into his already overdrawn bsnk account my 230$ would be lost.... ok at this point I express how agitated I am an that I need my saw back within the next coming week. Ok so here we are a solid 3 weeks almost a month on the 8th of March an I STILL have yet to see my saw! I called him last night around 6pm eastern standard time an it goes right to voicemail... which is convienently not set up.... so I leave him a text stating he needs to contact me as soon as possible to verify the shipping progress of my saw. Where do I go from here guys? This guy seemed legit , an trustworthy now I’m starting to believe he scammed me?? Should I have done more research when looking for a rep able builder? Currently I’m out the cost of the saw plus 230$ for the work he performed along with shipping both ways! I’m beginning to think he spent my money an has no money to ship my saw back! If this is the case IF he would be man enough to answer his phone I would ask him to walk the package to the post office if his truck is truely broken down sn he has no money to pay to fix it an have my saw shipped COD at no cost to him what so ever but again he’s now dodging my phone calls! Any help would be greatly appriciated before legal action is taken which will be last an final resort.
