Default FORUM SCAMMER - na8psi/NAHookup

Anyone know this guy? His screen name on here is na8psi and his screen name on cr.net is NAhookup.

I sent him $500 paypal for his rims and tires, and he never sent them. Stopped replying to messages.....the whole sha-bang. Evidently, he has given a number of people problems when it comes to buying stuff from him, which I was told AFTER the fact happened.

Get me some info on this guy if you know any. I will find a way to get my money or my wheels from him when I come back from deployment

Thanks for the heads up, start by filling a paypal dispute. I've had the same trouble and called their local police department as well.

Tried it, but I sent the money to him via my personal account and found out you don't get the insurance if you don't send the money for goods purchased where someone has to pay the fee.

I still can file interstate fraud with the local police department, but I would like some info on this guy first.

This is not the first time someone has complained about na8psi with scamming them in the past month on here. His last excuse was that he had a death in the family, but that was over a week a go so he should of had time to clear things up by now.

Call his local Police Station...they'll go visit his house and ask him if he is alive...
That should wake him up a little....


DON'T go to your police department...they won't do ****.

Good grief.

I think he got away with a little more because the first person to call him out was on some free lug nuts. Everyone laughed...sorry you're not laughing.

$500 would be enough to warrant me being a bit psycho and going to someones house, if I could find their address. Thieves should be treated as in some other countries, hands removed, or severely beaten and jailed for extended periods of time. They don't learn and no one gets the idea when all they get is a slap on the wrist, if anything in the case of scammers like this. I ******* hate a thief. Hope you somehow get this resolved in your favor, at his expense.

na8psi went AWOL last week. I'm not sure it had anything to do with your transaction, but I know on the 12th said he wanted to get in on the miataturbo.net shirts and when I tried to reach out to get payment from him I have yet to hear back.

Like Shuiends mentioned, he did post something about a death in the family, so I'd like to see how this plays out before he's burned at the stake.

in this thread on the 12th he even mentions he has parts he still needs to ship....

Wow.

Well this isn't a set of lug nuts for 5 dollars, so he better have a damn good excuse this time.
Guess some people just don't take online transactions seriously these days.

It has been over a month and a half since he sold me a bum head AND promised a refund. I still have not received anything, including communications. Whenever he does post up, he keeps telling me he is searching for a replacement head when I have made it painfully obvious I want my money.

Dazed, I have a number, possibly an address if that would help, PM me.

Last time I heard from him was 2 or 3 weeks ago. Said he was out of town for "the week"
and my wheels had a scheduled pickup with UPS that friday with a 2 day priority shipping and he would get me the tracking number after they got picked up.

Well that never happened. That was 30 days after I paid for them.
I don't mind if he's taking his time, seeing that I'm out of country, but I can't move my miata to get it inspected and sold until it has new rubber under it. Also the fact that he isn't even attempting to communicate with me is getting under my skin.

He's the same one that scammed me over on CR. Granted, it was 15 bucks, but when I PM'd him about it, instead of a reply, he signed up as a member over there, "donating" $20. Naturally Tim Allen would do nothing about it. How about forwarding the money to me, ya ***.

I almost did business with him... Close call. I think at this point there is no redemption for him. Communication is too easy, and that's all it would have taken it seems.
