Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

Anyone ever done business w/ this guy before? I purchased a couple items about two weeks ago. Got a confirmation e-mail and I called and e-mailed back to find out when the item would ship....And the phone was disconnected today and two days have past since my e-mail.
Just wondered if I got scammed out of $98 or they are really just that slow and noncommunicative? Please tell me I'm just impatient after ten days.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

maybe a call to the city where he's located at, to the chamber of commerce or the better business bureau and see if they have heard of him or reports on him. Good luck to you..

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

I bought a coil from him a couple of months ago. It took him a few days to get his stock in and he e-mailed me about the delay and then again when it was shipped. Don't know what could be going on now.

The e-mail I recieved was in the format of an invoice. It explained the items would ship via UPS but their was no tracking info.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

Well, I keep trying to call and fax # and one ph# is disconnected. Other number has a full voice box. No return on e-mail after several days and no return of voice message and no package arrival. He has an ad in Western & Eastern thats why I tried him. Maybe vacation, but I'd expect some kind of voice recorded message or web site posting explaining this.

Anyone around that area have any info. I 'm not slandering because I know sometimes health fails and business can get ruined but I would expect some type of communication after two weeks????

He has been around for a long time. I've seen the ads, but never purchased from him.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

I have bought from Ron's Detectors several times and he has always been a good guy to deal with I am sure there is a good reason for the delay. Probably on vacation or something.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

I just bought a prizm II from him about five days ago, so he is still in business and seemed to be a great guy. His store is on Dover road in Clarksville on top of the hill on your left just past Kroger.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

Ok, well I found this guys personal # and debaited calling. So I called with all intentions of asking if this was connected to the MD store...Which it was and it was disconnected.

Well I just gotta check my statement to see if I got charged.

Re: Ron's Detectors in Tenn Question?

I called my cc company and it turns out I was not charged. Shortly after I recieved this e-mail....

Hi Chico Rico,
No your order has not shipped, i am very sorry, but been out with an illness, and on top of it business has turned bad. I am forced to have to close it down on the hobby side.
But many thanks for wanting to do business with me.
Ron


That sucks. Poor guy gets sick and then a weak economy takes half of the business.
Thanks for all your replies and help.
