Classified complaint

I have purchased a number of items from Forum members both on this board and others with always perfect outcomes, with one exception.
An item bought on this Forum was correctly descibed as "Used and in good condition", the picture was of the new item (I have done this myself as a lot easier to cut and paste a web picture).
The item is a little more than Used, but I can live with that, a part however is missing and I have contacted the gentleman via his personal email and a Private Message with no response for two weeks. He has not been active on the Forum.
I am reluctant to call him at his place of work, which I know from the shipping label.
The part missing is actually important to the functionality of the item.

What would you do ? It was $ 95, so no fortune.

Re: Classified complaint

Call the guy and give him a chance to make it right. Maybe he broke his fingers in a terrible bolwing accident and he can't type.

Re: Classified complaint

If you dont hear anything from him... let people know who it is so they dont buy something else from him.
