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.

so this saturn has failed me in two way the brakes seized up due to a factory recall issue and no airbags were deployed, i have a serious neck injury and it has progressively gotten worse through out the day and is continuing to get worse to the point where i can almost not move it.
perhaps he is injured though? I'm not sure


He was on here 1/23/09 at 9:56pm ET

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.

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..:nono: 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..

We need a thief thread that has all the names on the forum of possible fraudelent people.

Second anyone says P.O Box or COD. I say noooo way paypal is cool because, you will get your cash back.

If you do send money only send a Postal Money order written to the person's name only. They mess with you with a Postal MO then it's federal and even in Canada they will find you. The money orders are traceable through any bank. When you notify the authorites they will respond quickly.

Also, with Ebay. You don't have to pay any extra for Insurance on a package. It is the sellers responciblity to get your package to you. If it gets lost they have to refund the cash.

I already went through this with paypal. Lady sent my stuff, someone was intercepting my US postal packages and opening them and deciding what to keep and what to send back, but I was not getting my packages... long story.

Anyway, I filed with paypal about a package I never recieved and the sender said I did not pay for Insurance. Paypal said I don't have to pay insurance the seller does and is responcible for the package if it is lost. Long story short I got my money back. Lady got nothing. That is the bad thing about using USPS anyway. I alway use FedEx with direct signature so there are no mistakes. No signature no package. Even though FedEx will drop off packages with DS without the signature, but if they do they have to replace the package if lost.
