this was the last thing i wanted to do but he has left me no choice but to share this with all of you and i hope you all decide to never put yourself in my situation.
take this as a warning--- DO NOT DEAL WITH COREY STINSON FROM SMALLJOES.COM AND HERES WHY!!!!!!!
i have been collecting gijoes ever since i was 4 years old and recently i came into some money problems so i decided to sell a huge bulk of my collection. so i contacted a few gijoe sellers and asked if they would be interested in buying my collection, corey stinson from smalljoes.com decided he was interested and we came to a deal within a couple of emails that we were both happy with. and here is what the deal was.
i was to send him my collection and he had a full list of what was included and when he recieved the items he was to send me a $1400 money order, a few items in trade and he was also to pay for the shipping to him. that was our agreement.
so i package everything up in bubble wrap and foam pieces to the amount of 13 big boxes and he gave me his fed ex account number to send it under, and so it was sent. the deal was as soon as he recieved the items from me that he would send my stuff off right away. he sent me an email saying he recieved my items and he would go through it right away and then get right back to me. weeks went by and no response from him, then he said it would be soon. then more weeks went by and still nothing. i kept sending him nice emails making sure to watch what i say and still no response from him. so then i decide it is time to go and see the police, they give me some advice and i proceed and then he finally responds to me saying that he just recieved the bill from fedex for over $800 for the shipping and he calculated that it should only cost around $400 so he would take that amount off what he owed me. i said NO WAY that was not our agreement. so i call fed ex and after being on the phone with them almost 2 hours i get them to reduce the bill to around $400. so i email him back and no response from him again. weeks go by again with me sending him an email or 2 everyday and finally he responds saying that he sent me partial payment and he would not be paying me the $525 difference that fedex over charged him. i explained to him AGAIN that i took care of it and he doesnt seem to care.
i DID recieve the partial payment from him and the trade items but he still owes me a tiny bit over $525 cash and will not return my emails or phone calls. i have called fedex again to confirm that they gave him the credit for the extra shipping and they did way back on november 15th.
so this is a warning from me to all of you to not deal with smalljoes.com because this being my first experience with him and not a good one. it has been over 3 months and he still owes me money. i have talked to lawyers about this and showed them all of the emails and they say that it is very clear that he owes me and i should preceed to court with him but i keep giving him the benefit of the doubt and i am hoping that he will come through on this and be a man. if not i WILL take him to court.
i have also contated the better business bureau and they have contacted him but he is not responding to them either, so what does that tell you.
