Toxzzic1 screwed me over for $675
I always found it hard to trust forums because you don't know where the users come from or what they are thinking but I wanted a cobra bumper and there was a deal, not one that seemed too good to be true mind you, that I decided to try my first forum deal. I made a payment to toxzzic1 for 675 in June. One month goes by and I hear he would locate the part meanwhile I'm asking for a tracking number that i never got. So after a month he finds the part never got shipped. So I file a paypal claim but suddenly his paypal gets locked and asked me to drop the claim (stupid me) not knowing I couldn't reopen it if he screws me over. Sure enough more excuses, the driver of fedex can't get to his house and the local fedex store won't accept the item.
So for the past week or so I say ok, I contact my friend that also lives in VA and that toxzzic1 should give the part to him and the shipping costs which he agrees. My friend and he make contact and were supposed to meet Tuesday and he gets called into work, so ok Saturday he's supposed to meet but the part is in his wife's car, and today my friend is supposed to meet and he says there's some kind of damages that he was supposed to PM me about but nothing.
Didn't want to bring it up like this but buyer beware, my first ever forum purchase and now I must contact a lawyer and see what can be done. I have been very patient and gave him numerous chances because I know anything above 300 is a felony charge and I have been trying to avoid that cause he has a wife and kids, but enough is enough this is going on 2 months and that's more then enough time to get a part even to Hawaii.
