Update on my dealing with "imballin2day" for everyone

I wanted to start a new thread to clear the air here...

After almost 2 months of waiting I finally received my long overdue refund. The money cleared an hour ago.

As I stated in the other thread, I do believe that Golan is an honest guy and I did see thruth in what he was saying to me. The problem that I had was lack of communication on his part. All the signs of a scammer were there: great comunication until the money was sent. Once the money was sent it was like pulling teeth trying to get a response. The item was no longer available for sale which raises questions of whether it was ever available, and lastly the initial refund was declined by PayPal.
The truths here are that the wheel does exist, Golan was out of town and had problems with his blackberry limiting his emails (still no excuse if youre posting up on the boards, sorry just being honest), and the denied refund was a mess up on PayPal's end taking money from the wrong account.

Golan has asked me to make a thread to help re-store faith in his name on the boards, and that is what this thread is meant to do. While some of the words spoken do not go with the theme of restoring someones name; I will not lie and say things did not happen. I will not say that I wasnt worried my money would not be returned.

In the end, it may have taken some time but I did receive a full refund. I will chock this up to a learning experience as should everyone else. I was lucky enough that Golan is an honest person and did the right thing, while a different type of person may have taken advantage of my trusting nature.

Thank you again to the members of M3 forum and E90 forum for your concerns and kind words. And thank you Golan for being an honest person and returning the money despite the complications

I bought my V1 from him. Before sealing the deal, he would respond almost instantaneously, afterwards, it took a long time to hear from him even though I would still see him make posts on this forum.

I got the product from him fine and it was in good shape, but it didn't come with the straight cord, as per the inventory list on the instruction manual. I asked him for it, but I've never heard back from him. I figure it wasn't worth the effort since I wasn't planning on using it.

That's my experience with him FWIW.

Based on the discussion in this thread (http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=319262) it appears that there hasn't been a refund. There was more than a little vigilante action directed at imballin2day in the referenced thread. imballin2day was shown as banned a few days ago shortly after the most heated exchanges (in the referenced thread).
