Graveyard Skulls-I can't get my shipment from them!

8203 22
RESOLVED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I received my shipment. Please read the last post for the solution.

August 21, placed an order for a single un-assembled Lindsey skull from the Graveyard Skulls website. (original design, not the new style)

Order was paid with PayPal on that date.

The website did say that it would take 2-3 weeks to ship the order and that was reasonable.

On the September 16, I sent an email as I had not received the skull or even a tracking number and received an almost immediate response from Joel via email that 'your order was shipped, let me find the tracking number'.

Everything was fine up until this point. I understand we all get busy this time of year and that late August may have been a little late in the season to order, but this was for an UN-Assembled kit, just in the box.

Unfortunately, the emails from GYS continued to promise that it had been shipped and 'I will get you a shipping number in a couple of hours'.

on Septemrber 30 the email thread was below...

You should have it by Wednesday the latest. I will pull the receipt and get the tracking number pulled that way. Because of the time; I went ahead and assembled it for you and did the alignment. After Halloween, I will mail you out another unassembled so you can assemble that one – no charge.

Do you have a tracking number, or an approximate date I can expect to receive it?

Sorry for the bit of thread Necromancy here. I wish I would have seen this 2-3 years ago. Thinking about it now it would have been good to have a more public conversation to either get my order on the ball or serve as a warning to others. I bought a R&P skull and some parts to upgrade the eye kits so I could better control the colors of the eyes in the Summer of '11 which I never received. This despite a close to 200 emails back and forth with Joel dating all the way to July of 2013... Guess it's too late now.

I wish I had done the same as of today my order is 3 years old I have tried continuously to have this resolved via phone and email and been given enough excesses and promises to fill a presidential election.
I shoudl have made this a very public issue when it was 6 months old but i took the word of bob and joel.

I am sorry for the problems you had and apparently continue to have. Please don't put me in the same category as Joel. I am also still waiting for resolution from Joel. My part in the business was only design, technical support and providing routines. I never had any control over production, assembly, sales or shipping of products and no way to check up on it as I was kept in the dark on those matters as much as all the customers. I am quite sure that I, personally, never made any promises to you or anyone else regarding the shipping of your products or fulfilling your orders, as I never knew myself what was happening. I was there because my designs were being used, and to provide technical support to those who needed it, which I did a lot of. For free.

I understand that you are rightfully upset. I don't know the circumstances of your particular situation, but unfortunately, you are not alone. If there is anything that I can do to help you, please let me know, however, I have no control over anything Joel does or ever did. I can not make him keep his word if he has told you things that he did not follow through on. I just wanted to clarify my role in the defunct company, and to extend my sympathy to anyone who has had or still has unresolved issues. I am right there with you.

I feel very badly that I was involved in a company that treated customers this way. I did not know that going in, and throughout the entire time, I had no control over any of those parts of the business.

I hope to clear that up and not be dragged down into the dirt, as I do want to be someone that has good things to offer to this community, and it is unfortunate that I got connected to something that gives me a black eye.
