Randy at Groovy Game Gear stole my money.  Plain and simple.

I ordered a part and it was returned to Randy because of a bad address.
He has since kept my money and refuses to reply to my numerous emails.
Even a credit card charge back has not motivated him to respond.

The transaction was December 23, 2013, plenty of time for Randy to step up.

I hate to throw a member like Randy under the bus, but he has stolen from me, and his lack of response is very unprofessional.

I would recommend steering clear of him and his site.

I'm a member of another forum and we caught wind of the GGG drama. I had the same problem you had. These guys have gone south on us. Ladies and Gents, stay away from them.


Your issue is that you don't know your own address and got your money refunded? 


 :applaud:

Go run back to your other forum.

I'm a member of other forums as well, and I haven't had any problems with multiple orders from GGG. Ladies and Gents, ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- happens. I have a feeling if the OP had entered the correct address on the order, there would not have been an issue. I don't know what your problem was. Be specific?

I've never had a single problem with any of my Groovy Game Gear orders.  Any questions or concerns were addressed quickly by RandyT.

Ordered from GGG on Tuesday.  Package arrived on Saturday.  Order was complete.  Packing was very good.  Communication with Randy is always prompt.

BTW, I'm not a fanboy of any vendors. I can only speak to my experiences. I've only ever had issues with one regular seller here, and even then, I didn't feel it necessary to call him out because it was a specific incident, and not a case where I thought he was willfully ripping people off and I needed to save everyone's money. Over time, I've even got past my issue with him and have conducted other transactions without complains. Again, ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- happens. Get over it.

Insanity.   Groovy Game Gear has over 15000 happy customers, with more every day, and has shipped over 25,000 orders in our 12+ years doing this.  Of those, we have 3 small orders here that are the equivalent of a "dead letter" box at the post office.  They are the result of people providing us with bad contact info, coupled with improper addresses, or an international order where duties are required from the addressee and the item was never picked up.  We make several attempts to contact the individuals, and when this results in no response, there's little we can do but wait for those individuals to reach out to us again.  Everyone else in a similar situation has, and we take care of the situation quickly and appropriately.  But three have not.  Those orders are still sitting here, in the same packaging in which they were returned.  The contents were never returned to stock, because we do not own them.  They are waiting to be claimed.

Further, about a week ago, I again attempted to contact whom I thought the first individual might be, with the email address provided with his order to see if he was one of these, as well as indicating here that he should contact me via PM on this forum.  As of today, no response whatsoever, neither in email or in the form of a PM. 

After time passes, and the items go unclaimed, it is not possible for us to credit the accounts of those individuals, as we do not retain the credit card information for security reasons.  As we only accept credit card for payment, the individual always has recourse in a situation like this, they need only to exercise it.  But it is never necessary to have to go this route with us.  In the case of the three "ghosts" I have here, I really wish those individuals would have.  It vexes me every time I see them.

If anyone thinks they might be one of those, CONTACT ME, because I can't seem to contact YOU.  If you don't, my hands are unfortunately tied.

Details or it didn't happen.
IF there is any substance to those accusations, making them without providing any relevant supporting details does not help your case.

Btw, RandyT is technically a vendor, not a trader. I'm not sure these complaints belong in this thread. This thread would be more like I bought a PCB from member PL1, and he took my money and sent me a fake tracking number (which didn't happen, btw). Those are bad "traders".

Careful digitalmonkeyman, the last member who vocalized his displeasure with GGG wound up with a temporary ban...

No one is banned for expressing their opinion of a vendor good, bad, or indifferent. Bans here are few and only for violating the rules. Airing a dispute with a vendor for the benefit of other potential customers is not a violation of the rules.

While I agree that I've never been banned for a vendor opinion, I've had several vendor experience posts deleted without explanation.  Particularly when they've involved Ultimarc. 

Perhaps you weren't the one doing it, but it became so routine that BYOAC members can fend for themselves, so far as I'm concerned.
