I hope this isn't in any way out of line, if so, please let me know and I will remove this thread.
I recently made my first classifieds purchase. I purchased a Gillette Slim Adjustable from Dex (Stubblefield). Dex was a pleasure to deal with and has been nothing but kind to me, however something outside of his control has caused a problem. The razor was mailed to me, the mailman delivered it, but placed the box in the entranceway of my apartment building under the mailboxes since it did not fit in my mailbox. I came home after checking tracking, expecting my razor to be there, but when I got there it was gone. I spoke directly with my mail carrier the next morning and he confirmed that he had delivered it, I also had two of my neighbors (who are both very trustworthy) tell me that they did in fact see the box in the entranceway with my name on it.
Anyway, my razor has been stolen, plain and simple. So, I am calling around to all of the pawn shops and antique stores in my area to have them keep an eye out for anyone trying to sell this razor as these aren't a normal find around here (neither are DE's or straights in general at that). I know many of you take a look on the 'bay for razors at least once a day. So here's what I'm asking, if any of you happen to be on the 'bay and have an extra moment, keep an eye out for any Gillette Slim Adjustable razors that are listed near Rock Island, Illinois 61201 USA. Some surrounding cities include: Milan, IL., Davenport, IA., Moline, IL., East Moline, IL., and Silvis IL. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this and anyone who keeps an eye out for me.
Again I want to emphasize that this is in no way meant to reflect on Dex's reputation and it was in no way at all his fault. In fact when Dex heard what had happened he offered to send me a super speed for free, but as I feel that he should not have to take a loss in any way to try and make up for something someone else did that was totally out of his control I told him I could not take it from him for free.
