Hello,

I admittedly goofed it seems.

I mailed off an item (not real expensive, but still) to someone on Astromart before receiving payment.

I have since not heard anything from them including the promised payment. I have tried many e-mails and left a message on their cell.

I am reluctant to rate them low since they can turn around and rap my rating that I have builtup over time. Their rating is only a single purchase.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for reading.

Don't worry about what they might do as far as rating is concerned. You just have to state what happened and that is all that matters. If they leave you a bad rating, you can them comment on that rating explaining your previous rating for the transaction.

My take on this would be how much time are we talking......Given as you say it was relatively inexpensive and that there are a few situations however unlikely but do from time to time occur that can explain your inability to contact them, I would give it at least a couple weeks before going further other than perhaps some additional attempts to contact. Keep your cool too....On the outside chance it is a legit situation the buyer will be appreciative of your understanding when he is able to contact you. But after two weeks?
