Bad/Unhonest Seller - ToyHunter

I had been talking to toyhunter (brett) for about 6 days about his toyota for sale and we agree'd on a a price of $5000 cash for his truck. I live down in santa barbara (so cal) and the truck was all the way up in medford oregon (650 miles). So I told him I was going to be driving all the way across the state to go pick up his truck and we agreed on satuday around 4pm. I rent a car and my friend and I start driving up north. He calls me when im up to san fransico to confirm I was on my way and I said yes.
He was fully aware of the trouble and distance I was going through to buy the truck. About 3 hours later and after about 500 miles of driving I get a text from him saying he just SOLD IT TO SOMEONE ELSE for $5500!! He doesent even call just a text message and then he wont even answer my phone calls to explain himself or try to work somthing out with me. So here I am up in northern california tottaly screwed by this guy after I had rented a truck, had my friend take work off to go up with me, and spent over $100 in gas. So round trip I ended up driving 1000 miles and spent $200 in gas+cost of rental for nothing. This is just such a shady and unhonest thing to do to someone and I want other members to be aware of this guys ethics. Ive been trying to call him for the last 3 days so i can at least talk to him about it but he will not answer or return any calls. Here is the link to his ad and his phone #
(541) 326-7086

/forum/vehicles-trailers-sale/583799-89-toy-pickup-straight-axle-sale-trade.html

I think that he should refund me the $ I wasted on gas and a apology .

I agree, that's a bunch of BS!!! He definitely owes you money for gas at the very least & maybe the rental too.

What is it coming to these days???? I mean, it used to be your reputation was everything. And standing behind your word was worth even more than that. I couldn't sleep at night knowing I just did this to someone.

dude the same thing happened to me and all anyone on the site i was on said was "If it wasn't in writing and you didn't pay anything it's your fault" but i say screw that if you drive up there to have a little "talk", you have a place to stay in sac overnight, and i'll ride shotgun upthere with you cause people like this need to get stomped to realise what a fucktard he is. i hope you get something outta this guy. and i agree when did someone rep. go the way of the wind

WOW!!!!

I'm mad for you

I never did like Oregon anyway - you can't pump your own gas.

Good luck on finding a better rig!

What a jerk. Email or PM him this thread and tell him to do the righteous thing and reimburse you or look out if he is ever on any trails in the future.

Not cool at all. He should be giving you that extra 5 skins he sold it for to make up for your gas and time. I just dont get the way some people think.
