Default Buyer Beware Chad Pyland Florida

Posting a Buyer Beware of Chad Pyland in Florida - I made the mistake of buying a complete Bravo One Transom assembly from him on Facebookmarketplace.com - I paid him $1,150.00 (to his wife Stephanie Pyland via Pay Pal) on December 16, 2020 - initially he stated he packed it up and shipped it on Dec. 16, 2020 and that he'd update me with a tracking number. Dec 29, 2020 I messaged him to see if there were any updates. Jan 4, 2021 he messaged me back stating he'd get me everything needed to track my package, Jan 5, 2021 after I re-messaged him for the update, he stated I would receive the package by Friday Jan 8, 2021, Jan 11 - 13th I continued to request a tracking number as I had not received any delivery or tracking information from him. Jan 14th I get picture of a tracking number When I ran the number it stated the label was generated Jan 14th! When I received the box Jan 20th the only item in the box was the inner mounting plate. Jan 22 I requested an update - he said he'd provide the shipping numbers when he got back to the office - Jan 26 I requested an update, Jan 27 Chad advised I'd have everything in hand by the end of the week. Feb 1 2021 still nothing, Feb 3, 2021 I received a box with only 2 outdrive trim rams - As of today Feb 10, 2021 I have not received a honest/simple response to any questions regarding the timely shipping of the items I paid in full on Dec 16th!!!!!! I have all the 'messenger' communications from the Facebookmarketplace.com forum to back-up my claims


Sorry for LONG thread, but I just wanted illustrate the timeline and challenges of dealing with guy.


Buyer Beware

Did you pay his wife with the "Gift" option on Paypal, or the "Goods and Services"?

I am hearing PayPal is acting like marketplace is a third party sale and will not do anything.

Unfortunately I sent payment as 'family/friend' - my bad and my lesson for the future - I googled him and found out that he has a hay/grain company in Florida and the Yelp review I read was very similar to my situation - so I did the next best thing and added my own Yelp review of my experience with this guy - I'm OK with the 'Life Lesson', but I didn't want anyone else to get 'ripped' by this guy.
Be Safe out there and hopefully we can ALL get back out on the water to reduce some of the CRAZY stress we've been going through LOL!

Stay tuned for the "death in the family" defense.

NEVER send Paypal friend/family to someone you don't know and don't trust 100%.
