bad seller

On nov 7th i made payment for a set of used headlights through paypal to user Saab9-3 here on skyroadster.com. He stiffed me. He has $260 and I received nothing. I contacted him many times for a tracking number or a refund and he has provided me with no info.

If anyone knows him or knows how to get a hold of him I know erie county sheriffs dept. wants to talk to him. I also filed with the ifcc which is a division of the fbi who settles problems like this. Just a warning to everyone out there be careful and paypal doens't guaranty anything... so know who your giving money too and get as much info as you can before you send any money over the net.

That's very unfortunate that there are people like this willing to stiff other fellow enthusiasts. I hope the matter is taken care of swiftly and you get your money returned.

Did you file a report with Paypal? I use Paypal all the time and have had to file a claim twice on people who took my money and dashed. Both times Paypal refunded my monies after they determined they were fraudulent sellers. Try filing a claim and see how it goes. If they are a verified seller , then they had to have a credit card or bank account on file. Paypal will reverse the transaction but speed is of the essence. If this guy does this for a living he will likely close whatever account he has with Paypal. Good luck.

A Google search for poooch1984 yeilds some pretty unpleasant results.

ASA AR2 w/ Bridgestone potenza RE50A Pole position: NEW LOW PRICE/accepting trades - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum

Hope it's not him and this still works out, but I wouldn't hold my breath, Homer.

Right away I am suspicious, whether he is legit or not..

Doesn't own a Sky, no avatar, no personal info, from Canada.. Bells are already going off in my head.. Then homer the poor guy sends this suspicious dude $260 "out of the USA"..And I bet to a PO box, not an address.. without some type of recourse, at a minimum I would use PP.. AND the biggie here, it happened in November 7th of 08?? what took you so long to post this?? apparently this guy has had issues and problems selling directly to others, some of the items finally showed up in others like our guy is claiming nothing.. Already this dude is tarnished in our community, I wouldn't buy a peanut from this guy.. In fact, perhaps he should be booted from our forum and banned.. If it can be proven he did rip off homer..

Finally I'll say he can still come here and read this thread without signing on, in other forums he has come in and attacked these buyers, this kid, he has brass balls, and no morals apparently..
