    beware brunell-999

    just a word of warning to beware of this conman on this site to all those using the classifieds section. & b4 anyone starts its not about the money thats a pittance its the principle.
    this individual wanted some once fired Privi brass 243 i had for sale price was agreed 22 then it started but giving the benefit of the doubt i proceeded he was only willing to pay half now & half upon receipt ( should have listened to my gut then) but i posted it off to him only to get a message yesterday stating that " brass received i have put them in tumbler for 1 hr but 25 of the 100 are too dirty for me to use, im not paying you |& want my full 11 back "
    my reply was please return all of them for a full refund then this was not acceptable he wants to return 25 keep the rest & get full refund even tho i checked the cases b4 they left me & the ones he says are too dirty are unlike any i sent him when posted, all this aside its not the money its the principle now i cant get any money or my brass bk from this conman so please all be aware of this individual & his conduct & in my opinion avoid at all costs he lives in Sidcup in Kent by the way so some of you might know him personally but the one person i know who dose has now also warned me about him. just thought id let you all know i have all messages for admin to see & advised him i will be advising them of his conduct. We all trust the integrity of those selling on this site & i have not had many problems over the years buying & selling stuff on here but it seems not all are as honorable as the majority of SD members.
    LET HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE & PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE!

    Very sorry to hear that - fortunately such episodes on this Site are few and far between.

    If it helps, and you'd like some Norma 243 brass to replace the ones that have gone missing, just PM me your address.
    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Refund him nothing until all the brass has been returned. If he is unwilling to do that is his choice.
    I have bought and sold scopes,rifles and equipment in this forum without a single issue. A pity some are not so lucky.

    After 1hr in a tumbler would anyone expect 100 empties to be spotless and how can brass be to dirty surely it just needs longer guy sounds like a d#ck

    Don't like these trials by SD posts much but I have to say that this sounds like premeditated fraud to me. Since when did you only pay 50% for a purchase before delivery? Why he expects a full refund without returning the goods is beyond me .

    I bought 243 brass from you before and no issues with how dirty it was!

    Maybe he should use some fresh media.

    Sorry to here thar I have sold and purchased a lot off of here with no troubles at all. Maybe if he is that worried he should have bought new.

    sad day fella,

    i have some once once fired here as Willie says you need only ask,

    ps: they will be dirty as I think firing them makes them dirty, and may need cleaning a bit before you reload them to get them dirty again

    sold and purchased loads on here without any issues,


    strange

    he claims he only has a tikka 308 and 6.5/55?
