I ordered one of the books and paid $64 for it after communicating with Glenn on Dec. 28. So far I have received NOTHING - and Glenn is not answering my e-mails.

So BEWARE - this might be a scam! What a sad thing...

I tried the phone number: no answer and no answering machine. So I sent him an e-mail and asked him to deal with your problem.

Glenn's sold a number of items here previously, and while I don't have any personal experience with him, I'd tend to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. I hope this can be resolved quickly.

Glenn has just responded by e-mail, and we were able to talk on the phone. I believe it was all due to some e-mail problems in Glenn's end, so we should be getting things resolved soon.

Thanks for the help Joe, Ronnie and Richard.

I've had the same problem. I paid for a book in December, and haven't seen it.

I've sent around 10 emails, sent a PM on this board (which is unread), and even tried calling on the phone - no response.

I did a deal started at the beginning of December last year just after Christmas sent e-mails and got no response.was waiting for my 45 days to file a compliant with EBay and just before the dead line I received the book in the mail. Funny thing was it was stamped two days after I ordered it. Must be the Postal Service.

Don't give up the ship yet also If it does arrive please post so we know.

I regret taking this action, since Glenn is a friend, however due to repeated complaints, both on this Forum and in private e-mails to me about people ordering items that haven't been received even months later, I have asked Glenn not to sell anything else on the Forum. Glenn's a great guy, but he just doesn't seem to be able to get to the post office as often as he should.

I bought some gaffed coins from Glenn in December, received them in January. Shipping took a little longer than I expected, but I received everything I had ordered (plus a bonus that I hadn't ordered).

That's understandable, but he's reading the PM's I've sent him, and choosing not to respond. I'd understand if his emails were in some way broken, but the fact that he's read my PM's and chosen to ignore them, is disappointing.

I paid for my book nearly 3 months ago.

Glenn: unless your planning on retiring to Bermuda with my US$87, I'd like it back.

I've just spoken with Glenn and he's assured me that everything will be sorted out shortly and everyone who has ordered something will receive it.

Glenn wrote to me 3 weeks ago promising to refund my money.

Still no joy.

Lol.

It's at the stage where I know I'll never see that money again, and the only thing I can do now is laugh.

It's a shame that the money didn't come through 2 weeks ago - since the time I sent the money across (now many, many moons ago) the movement in the exchange rate means I could have actually profited from the refund.

You have learned a valuable lesson in what happens when the man with money meets the man with "experience."

The man with the "experience" gets the money and the man with the money gets the "experience." :D

LOL...not sure.

SOL...absolutely!

More months have passed and Glenn has still not returned my money and is not responding to my emails.

I'm still holding out that he might, one day, do the right thing.

Anyone heard from Glenn?

I'm still waiting for my refund. He seems to just be ignoring my emails now.
