Has anyone heard from user @tubeampking over the last few weeks? I paid him $275 of my dollars for an item that was never received or shipped to my knowledge, and he has not responded to any of my messages for the past few weeks. At this point I am counting it as a loss and trying to move on. I'm wondering if something happened to tubeampking. I have purchased a couple of things from him in the past, and he was great to deal with, so this is very disappointing. I paid for a Heathkit preamp on March 1st, and upon going through it, he told me he needed to replace a bad RCA jack on it. I told him no worries and to just keep me updated. I checked back about two weeks later, and he said he had the part and was going to do the work that night. I asked that he hold on shipping it for a few days since I was going to be out of town the next week. He responded and said that was fine. This was on March 14th, and I haven't heard from him since. He hasn't posted for a couple of weeks now, but he was online and active during the time I was sending him messages to ask about the status. He was actively ignoring my messages for a while. All I wanted was a status update, and it hasn't been until recently that I've tried to push him on it. Still nothing. So if anyone knows tubeampking or has any additional contact info for him, please PM me. I have tried emailing him at his paypal email address, but I still get no response. I'm really disappointed, and unless there is something else going on, at this point he has stolen $275 from me. I am a high school teacher, and that is a meaningful amount of cash to me. I wouldn't buy anything from him again at this point. I'll update if I ever hear from him. At this point I just want my money back.
