he got me, but lucky enough, i was able to do a paypal reversal. a few other members on serious explorations were not so luck. he even closed one user account there, and opened another one but myself as well as a few members and mods caught him in the act

hope this saves someone from aggravation. mods, please move or delete if need be.

if he is, he will not use the same name i am sure. he changed it twice over on ef before being caught, but for the members he dooped, he used the same paypal addy. he had joined, then started looking over the wanted adds, and pm'd that person saying he had the parts, and we found out he would pull pictures off the net after googleing what the part was.

There are no need for 4 threads stating the same thing. It isn't going to help any.

i wasnt sure where to post it, so i put it in each for sale threads. if you want to delete it, you have the power to, but be warned, and do not cry if or tell others that may be scammed that you knew about him thats all. he manged to almost get away with $250 within 3 days (and thats all we know of so far) on ef.

He just scammed me for non existing parts too!

Have a claim dispute open with paypal right now over this. He gave a fake tracking # to them. He shipped something 2 days before I had contact with him to someone else, and used that tracking # as mine to show paypal.

I hate a thief worse than I hate politics....and that says a lot for me.

thats why you never buy from someone with a low post count, no iTrader feedback, and short time member.

if someone PM'ed me saying they had something i was looking for, joined the same month, and had 20 posts id just tell them to ---- off lol

It really sucks that people are scumbags and have the time to do this kind of **** on forums

I think there should be a sticky with all the names of the members who you shouldn't buy from. I know I have a name for the list.
