Hi there Joe.
Sorry to learn and hear another person has been done in by this creep.
Would you please email me:
rk at rugkazbah.com
and at the least send me exactly what happened.
Or, and this would be far better, join with us to get Osman to make good on his promises and debts.
If we all join together this will be quite easy to do, separately he knows each of us will not be able to do much. This is why he keeps doing these dishonest things.
It is time to get him and make him aware he will not be able to act like this anymore and will have to satisfy all those he has cheated and lied to.
Thanks, we look forward to your reply.
I've had some bad experiences with him as well. Got a kelim that was...exaggerated by the photos, and he agreed to a return. When I sent it, the postal service returned it to me with a "no such address" notification.
While that was going on, bought another piece with "all natural dyes" that looked good in the photos, but any novice can tell has a synthetic, runny red. Didn't bother to try for a return on that one.
Do not deal with him.
