I ordered a juke box and Coke machine from him last week and only received the Coke machine. I've tried reaching him in email and phone and he is not answering. Didn't know if others have had similar trouble with him in the past. I'll keep trying and will post up my results as soon as I have something.

Thanks!

Larry seems to be a good guy..I placed an order in fall...His storage was flooded, and he was having a heck of a time finding some stuff. He did ship everything ordered and even a couple of extras for the wait.

I gotta agree with the fella's on this one, caz the coupla Dio items I've ordered from him came in a timely fashion. He seems to be a pretty straight up guy from the one time I spoke with him.

Apparently something is happening at Larry G Scale, as his phone mailbox is full and I have not received any emails from him yet. Interesting.

Could be on a trip or vacation....I suspect he did not charge you for what he didn't ship ?

Trying to think in the positive here and you'll get your stuff. Will you let me know when you receive the jukebox? I need one for a planned diorama. Does it light up?

I had intended on making it light up and play music if it was hollow. It really depends on the piece though, as it could be a solid piece of either wood, plastic, or metal.

Hopefully I'll get the chance to see. :rolleyes:

It will be solid....Most of Larrys goodies are well cast, then painted...

Hello Folks,

 

This is in response to Allen Manley DRAKE69'S ignorant and unwarranted attack on my business. Yesterday I was doing some item google searches and came across this forum and this topic thread.

 

I would think someone classified as an "Avid Poster" to this forum would have some general knowledge of how an online credit card transaction works but apparently not.

 

Allen Manley WAS NEVER charged for the Juke Box he ordered. That is the only fact revelant to this reply, however here is the timeline of events.

 

 

Allen Manley indeed placed an order in my store on 3/21/12 for 1 Diecast Coke Machine and 1 Juke Box, and his credit card was automatically "AUTHORIZED" for the full amount 29.85........When I saw the order, and knowing that the Juke Boxes had been discontinued and were no longer available, I processed the order on my end, which completed the credit card transaction the next day 3/22/12, and resulted in the ONLY charge to Allen Manleys credit card, for 1 Coke Machine and s/h via USPS.....total 20.90.............Attached are both the final order and the payment sheet.

 

I am not sure why Allens follow up and apology were deleted from this forum, but I am sure it was an honest mistake.

 

My sincere thanks to all the gentlemen who backed me up. I appreciate your kind words.

I have to agree . Larry is a good place to do business . I do ask before I order mostly . A hangover from the old days and Snail Mail . He does what he says in a timely manner . He lets you know about unavailable items . Any luck on the Chipper/Shredder yet Larry ?

   Thanx ....

I don't wish to stir this anymore than it already has been, but Mr. Drake may wish to not have his address and other personal info posted on the Internet as it is in atleast the paypal link. I didnt check the other link. In todays time you can never be to careful

Agreed. I think we can all tell by the testimonials posted above that Larry G Scale is a good person to do business with, and while I understand Larry's frustration, the personal and financial details should be kept private.

Folks,

 

I happened into this thread by accident and well beyond it when it started. I quickly responded.......with regard to the following feedback:

Point well taken as to the ADDRESS ONLY - I will re-add the pages with blackened address......The prices are from the website and could not be construed as personal information by any means as they are clearly in the public domain. With regard the Mr Manley's name.....with nearly 500 posts to this forum, all of which draw attention to his full name and user id, using his name also could not be construed by any reasonable person to be be divulging personal information.....As to the address AGREED. I would respectfully debate whether it could be considered a big deal, but agree it serves no purpose being there....the attached pages however, completed / supported my response in the first place, so I will repost with blackened address.

 

In fairness to Mr Manley, his comments were obviously PRIOR to receiving his credit card statement, and therefore I find no fault with his posts. It's his complete lack of follow up to this day, and his apparent willingness to "let an unwarranted attack on my business stand" to which I take exception.

 

Once again folks I appreciate the kind words. Thank you all.
