On Oct 20th 2007, i have looked online in a car forum and decided to purchase an intake from this seller on this web site below. http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=3497954
However, I paid $93 to his account and he promised me he would send it on monday Oct 22nd. Then after i have paid the money, i requested for tracking number from him since he said he would ship it through Fedex. He did not reply at all. Until Oct 29th morning , he sent me a message saying that the box is still back at the fedex next to his house due to the wrong shipping address. And then he asked me for the correct address. But then i decided for a full refund i asked him for a full refund back. He did not reply again .later on, he told me the item was sent back out again. I do not want the item from this seller anymore because i simply do not trust him. I want the full refund. And i again asked him for tracking number since he said it is shipped out again.He is just full of s***. He keeps avoiding me. I truely beleive he may be a fraudulent because he never wants to provide me a tracking number. So now i would like to have full refund of $93 back . And yesterday i have made another vwvortex account to talk with him and i asked him if the item is still for sale. And he replies yes. He obviously try to scam again. And i had all my conversation save on my computer. So i called paypal and they are in process contacting police and finding out where this guy lives and i have also sent all my conversation with all the evidence to paypal. I also filed a claim in paypal and i will eventually get my money back. But i just want to share with you guys do not buy from this guy or even talk with him. Because he is a scammer.Below is the conversation with me and him before and after the transaction. And also the conversation of me using another user name to trick him about this item. If anyone know any info with this guy, please let me know and help the forum to become a safer place to buy ! Thanks
