18/12/08 | 11:42 PM snaringamerica: 3 dozen Sleepy Creek #1.75 FS
I am selling 3 dozen #1.75's for my dad. He wants to retool with MB 550's. The traps are all in excellent condition, short chains, mid chain swivels, and kept waxed and dyed. He is asking $90/dz plus shipping. I will take care of the shipping for him, he is kind of shipping illiterate, lol. Shipping will cost $13.00 for up to 2 dozen shipped in large flat rate boxes. PM if interested.
PM's That were exchanged.........

Your traps did go out yesterday.UPS stopped and they were ready so they are on the way
22/12/08 | 01:06 PM snaringamerica: Sleepy Creek Traps
ok, it looks like we might have a problem, but nothing we can't iron out pretty easily.
I called my dad today to see if he got the traps together to ship and he said he doesn't have 2 dozen sleepy creeks, what he does have is #1.75 BMI's and #2 Montgomery square jaw dogless that he will be able to send. he can make up a mix of the two types but I'm not sure how many of each. I promise you that you will get a fair deal on this and I apologize for this mix up.
22/12/08 | 01:58 PM Ric: Sleepy Creek Traps
I'll take the sleepy creek and fill it out with the montgomery's.
To say I'm happy with this turn would certainly not be accurate.You seem to be trying though.So do what you think is right and we will see how it works out
22/12/08 | 02:17 PM snaringamerica: Sleepy Creek Traps
I will do it personally. and from now on I will make sure I have anything he wants listed in hand before listing.
23/12/08 | 10:52 PM Ric: Sleepy Creek Traps
I would appreciate an indication of what is happening on your end
23/12/08 | 11:27 PM snaringamerica: Sleepy Creek Traps
I will ship tomorrow, I have to go to my dads in the morning to get the traps. I think he said he has all sleepy and monty traps for you. sorry for the lack of communication, trapperman is working kind of slow, I think we are in for an anual x-mas shutdown, lol.
24/12/08 | 10:04 AM Ric: Sleepy Creek Traps
Your traps were delivered yesterday have you looked at them?
24/12/08 | 10:29 AM snaringamerica: Sleepy Creek Traps
Yes I got them yesterday, they look awesome, I know m dad will be very happy.
30/12/08 | 11:29 PM Ric: Sleepy Creek Traps
You said you would have the traps out on the 24th.That is 4 working days for the post office,if you used priority mail as you stated you would.More than enough time for them to get here from where you are.If there is a problem we need to get this resolved.If there was some other change I would appreciate being informed.I have done everything as I had stated I would and I expect to be treated in the same manner as you have been.
You have not indicated how you intended to resolve the difference between what you advertised and what you intended to substitute or given any indication of tracking information as you stated you would.The lack of communication in this matter is not instilling any confidence that this transaction is heading towards a equitable conclusion
30/12/08 | 11:38 PM snaringamerica: Sleepy Creek Traps
first of all, The traps were not mine to begin with and you knew that from day one. I only advertized what I was told to advertize.
second, I had a hard time catching up with my dad to get the box to ship out. My dad has a new girlfriend and a new family, lol. I finally caught up with him on saturday afternoon so I couldn't ship till monday.
Finally, the traps did go out and you should have them very soon.
I don't know what is in the box I just know that he said that he was very fair with you and he gave you more than your money worth.
02/01/09 | 03:06 PM Ric: Sleepy Creek Traps
OK, Mike your package arived today.And yes we do have a problem.
There is not a sleepy creek trap in the bunch.
22 1.75 BMI
2 #2 round jaw montgomery
Some PA "Cable Restraints"
A pair of neoprene gloves.
We are not even in the ballpark here
I would appreciate a call at 440-647-2533
