True. But I don't see how scamming people can be justified because of growing up.

I understand that bit and agree with you there. But I wasn't trying to justify it in any way. There is no justifying. All there can be if someone fucks someone over, is the fucked stay fucked by the fuckee, or the fuckee steps up and makes things right with the fucked, and possibly an apology. Which, for whatever reason drove them to do so, is pretty rare.
Once that happens, it's sort of... it's hard to explain. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve a raft of shit, but he got that. Nor does he deserve to be trusted again, and he made that bed... and only time and him doing the right thing from here on out will have people trusting him in the future.
I'm also not trying to insinuate that you were viciously attacking the buy, btw. I just... maybe it's my age. I try to have a really... impartial perspective to this stuff. It's funny, even as I read the ridiculous insults being hurled at gravik prior to him coming clean, the moronic videos people making about him here and in other threads... I sit here shaking my head. Not because I feel for gravik or because I'm against the dude who got fucked, but because it's SO not the way to handle these things. Think about it for a moment. Say someone fucks someone over on a forum transaction... people are hoping that the fuckee comes around and steps up, right? To my mind, the last thing that will make that happen will be people calling him a stupid cunt, threats (not that there were any here, just saying generally as we see in the interweb world)... usually the only thing that will make someone come around is if they have SOME modicum of morals buried somewhere in their body, and facts and mature pressure. Which by and large Chris Jobe provided.
Imagine if you had a face to face transaction gone bad, and you're trying to convince the dude to do the right thing, but sitting there off to the side is this peanut gallery of (well meaning, granted, I know this) people hollering at the guy "DO THE RIGHT THING FUCK TWAT!! YOUR MOM'S A WHORE!! I'M GOING TO BEAT YOUR FACE WITH A GENERIC GARDEN RAKE, PUSSY! THEN I'M GOING TO RAPE YOUR BEAGLE!!"
... chances are, that's not helping things out. At all. It's just people smelling blood, and too many people.. buy into that.
+1 although not happy with how you originally handled it, glad to see you came to your sense and apologized in the end.
I think he meant that sending the parts on Monday is the right thing to do?
