    Well I thought I would post this for some laughs (or empathy). I had a guy deliver 3 year seasoned (35% on MM :mad:)) red oak but i planned on this happening and it was a good deal for 2 cords.

    So after he offloads the wood i go inside to get the cash to pay him. He leaves and then I notice my fiskers is gone!

    Anyone else have a theft issue before with the wood providers? Of course this was a CL deal and he will not return my calls.

    If it were me, I would find the fiskars some where else a few days later.

    Check craigslist. If it's there, call and set up a "meeting place " to buy your fiskars back. (heh heh!)::-)

    The way I read it is that the guy was paid, then left, then lost duck found the axe missing. Is that right?

    Whats popular aroung here is getting on Craigslist and writing bad reviews about sellers. Wood dealer bashing.

    Always write the license plate down.

    Well a $50 dollar axe for 2 cords of wood sounds like a good deal to me. Although being stolen from is never a good feeling

    I'd rather give someone $20,then have them steal $1. I hate a thief!

    I always have the money in my pocket and never leave anyone I don't know alone, I don't trust anyone.

    $125/cord for oak? That's a great deal! Call him and tell him to drop off 2 more loads and you'll have another axe for him!

    I would leave a message on his phone that says you will call the police it the ax is not returned in 24hrs. Not much trouble tracking a phone number or CL add to a person.

    That's what we did.

    A couple years ago we had 4 horse saddles stolen from the tack room of our shed. We filed a police report and started watching craigslist daily. Sure enough about 3 weeks later there they were. DW called the cops to let them know we found them. A detective stopped by the house and set up a sting. He posed as DW's boyfriend and they went to the guy's house to buy a saddle for "their daughter." They had identifiable markings on the underside. BUSTED!! :)
