plumbloco

looks like I got burned. sent this dude a money order 3 weeks ago, said he would ship out 2nd day air, that was 3 weeks ago. this is the last pm I sent

Dennis, 2nd day sure takes along time. I talked to blaze1,he suggested pm"ing you again. dude I just want my parts or sendMY 440.00 BUCKS back ! Have alittle pride in your word as a man. The post office told me that this is mail fraud, I'm just waiting for the post office so that I can fax a copy of the cashed money order to your local athorities.Then at that point I can file theft charges. Sure hope I don't have too, just send the parts or money.

Looks like you're not the only one with issues.

Sounds like there is some hope though. Good luck.

PM, call and email him as often as you can.
I've dealt with him several times. He's not the most reliable but he will make good on the deal.
He doesn't have internet access at home, he retrieves he emails from a library computer.

I've dealt with him a couple times on several big $$ items. He's got some personal issues, but makes good on transactions nonetheless. What parts did you get from him? *edit* just searched.... Keep trying to contact him, you never know.

This guy has done this to other people. Including other people on the board, and all we can manage is a handful of replies saying keep waiting? It's been a month and a half... somebody has got to be able to dig up a phone number on this guy!

The last time I had an issue with him he was in jail for 30 days. His GF sent my parts.
I'm sorry you're getting the shaft from him.

Glad to hear that Mike. And Bender, some of us(at least me) gave Mike contact #s and not false hope.

Any word from him?

I think it's time to tag all of his sales posts with warnings.

Sorry I couldn't help out a little better but it's a 3hr drive to his place, if he's even there anymore. I apologize to everyone who I recommended doing business with him. I tried calling & PM's too....... Nothing here.......

When I had my troubles with him his name showed up on a board that sells antique plumbing fixtures. I gathered that he was involed with some remodel projects in the area and possibly some new construction too. I wish I could pass on the info that I dug up but I deleted it. Arrest records are public record and these small towns will sometimes give the info over the phone. Convictions are public record too. You will be surprised what a tweaker will say when he gets arrested or convicted

well since my dealings with him were done previous to this forum ( bad sellers, etc... )

/forum/axles-tires-wheels-sale/366895-dana-35-spline-parts.html

Upwards of 8 axles and several $1000s of dollars. dude flaked.
over 6monthes i waited and continued to contact this person with what
i had for contact info

pricing changed drastically, what he said he would do CHANGED. took the
guy by his word, told me one thing next time i talked with him it
was something different. Claimed he didnt tell me that when i called
him on his lie, etc....

LC H spoke up for him, and i feel he had a good dealing with this person
and at no time was responsible for this POS.
