Exclamation Avoid Him @ All Costs!!!!

I've had ENOUGH!!...I have been patient and friendly as possible but NOW that i've seen this

Fan on ebay

AND


Complaint


I realized this is nothing new!...He screwed me outta $350 or so that may not sound like much to most folks but i'm a disabled full-time college student so I have next to NOTHING when it comes to money, and now another person has been robbed of $400. I've emailed him AND his wife politely and kindly several times, I used to call and i've been getting the silent treatment the entire time. Ive had MORE then enough!...I wanted to say something earlier, but after I saw that complaint against him for doing exactly what he did to me I couldnt keep my yap shut. I Will not sit quietly while he does this to someone else! Do NOT do business with him.

I know your probably reading this Merlin...and until your start doing RIGHT by people u'll reap what u sow. Just remember that.

We need an Indian Peoples Court....

It just wouldn't sit right with me ripping folks off....? Yes there is another side to the story, but it seems we never get that side...? Thats why we need an Indian Peoples Court....

O lol thanks for the replies yall...but thats not me on the ebay. It was that complaint that prompted me to post this on the net. He took me for a hawk tail and like $350 bucks...he's been paid in full for over 2 years now. I was always very nice, patient and understanding for his situation....he said he had a death in the fam, or he JUST had a baby and was busy...it was ALWAYS somethin ya know?...but I saw that complaint on ebay and actually i've recieved a message from someone in canada that he took them for $420 too, its just NUTS!...I sent him an email, a nice one asking for my fan because my sister will be down that way next month....and NO Response back from him. He's gone through owno, 2 or 3 phone numbers, he took his website down...he and his wife WERE on myspace but they disappeared off there as well...So I just felt the need to warn people about him. He can go to as many Meetings as he wants...but he'll never redeem himself for what he's done to people...it seriously sucks that u can't have ANY faith or trust in your own people.

You know, since his name is "Merlin," its probably a real let down that your item or refund didn't magically appear! J/K

LOL Naw its not about the fan on ebay, I started trying to do business with MERLIN JAMES of Winslow, AZ several years ago....He's been paid in full for over 2 years now. I was patient and understanding, because he said there was a death in his familiy, THEN he had a baby and was too busy or some such thing....he ceased ALL communication shortly after recieving my feathers to work on. So basically I got screwed over for a hawk tail AND my money...The fan on ebay is what prompted me to say HELL with THIS And Call him out...I don't want him stealing from anyone else.

The man that bid on the fan, is someone else not me.
and it WAS merlin that put that fan on ebay...He claims that whoever put in the bid only sent maybe half the money, but From what i'm hearing in reality he sent merlin $500 canadian.

LOL...thanks for your replies everyone, but I'm Not the one who bid on the ebay fan...I'm just ONE of apparently many people he's screwed over, and i'm here to warn everyone NOT to do business with him is all. No matter what he says...He told me all sorts o' bs about being from a good family very much involved in the NAC and he has nothing but the best thoughts and prayers into each of his works blah blah blah...he seems sincere but he's NOT!...I just don't want him stealing any of you good folks money.

My two pennies ...

I always thought that giving or receiving of items such as feathers should be conducted face to face. And of course, in my understanding, eagle feathers (maybe other feathers) should not be paid for with money. They are either given or sometime traded, but not sold. Just my two pennies ...

Your story sounds like mine just with different players. I am glad that you are telling us about this Merlin James. You say it has been 2 years... wow. Yep this sounds so familiar. All I can say is that I feel for you.



P.S... Jeff Walsh (aye_how_ er_007) you stole $300.00 from me. You owe me either a matching set of sticks or my money back!!

Lightbulb Geez!

Its the same ole tune...But the real rugged part of it is the basic fact that folks take full advantage of others? Yeah we all know that, but why? How the heck do people sleep at night knowing they ripped someone off? hey i'm no angel, I make my mistakes and will certainly make more....But c'mon....? Now even if there is a flip side to this coin more then likely we won't hear it? hey is it our business to know? Are we just nosey gossipy folks any old way? Naw! Keep em pouring in...Cause eventually there will be yet again another "Jack and the Beanstalk story...." Just remeber that Giant fell....Stay tuned....

I hope you all get your stuff that you ordered. I think it will work out in the end.

Coming from the other side - a person who gets swamped with orders and requests - I can tell you how hard it is to catch up with all orders when you get overrun.

I recently finished a jingle dress that was ordered just about 3 years ago. They didn't give me money up front, but gave me the jingles and a couple kilos of beads. For a variety of reasons it just didn't work out to make it in a timely manner. Being an "artiste", you have to be in the right frame of mind, as well as other factors leaning in your favor.

But when I got the 'bug' to finally make it, I got it done in record time, and the day they picked it up just happened to be the gal's birthday. So it all came out in the wash.

I still have a couple orders from a LONG WAYZ back. I never forget about them and know I'll get to them eventually. I also have over $1000 of items made delivered to people and not paid for, and people 'reserving' my time for an order and then I never hear from them.

The arrangement that seems to work out best is to get 1/2 the payment up front, then 1/2 on delivery. That way the maker gets enough for supplies, and the orderer is invested too. And the maker has some motivation to get it done.

Even right now I'm making some graduation ribbon shirts and of course, they didn't bring me the supplies until the last minute. People forget that I work full time +, and have a life! Oh sorry, had to vent.

Lightbulb Of course I I understand....

.....Getting swamped, BUT! What about someone who PROMISES something? Says they will have a FINISHED PRODUCT at a particular place and ZZZZZZZ! Nada! Nothing! Say this happens 2 or 3 times? Thats the "kicker" people.....If your swamped well say i'm swamped and you'll get it when you get it, But don't pull weak and promise something and then you don't come through.....Then you drop off the radar and develop amnesia or something? Thats WEAK! Real weak....That pisses people off.....That creates a bad situaton....Why then would someone want something from someone who treated em like that? Just give em the money back and be on your merry way....
