Default In the process of getting SCAMMED at cr.net by MAX_POWER

Wow, I can't believe this ****.

As all of you know, a few weeks ago I was selling a BEGi s4 tubular manifold + ss sg downpipe + support brace on here, cr.net, m.net, etc. Here is the listing:
https://www.miataturbo.net/miata-parts-sale-trade-5/fs-begi-s4-tubular-ss-manifold-ss-sg-downpipe-47686/

I was asking a VERY fair price of 750 shipped. Bought the stuff from speedf50, downpipe didn't work with my chinacharger, and I decided to sell it all.

So I get a lowball from this DIPSHIT named Max_Power aka Christos Adam, here is his profile:
http://clubroadster.net/vb_forum/member.php?u=17

offering me 650 shipped. I say hell no. He keeps pming me and finally goes up to 700 shipped. I say "ok how about 720 because paypal alone will take 20 bux for the transaction". he says no, then a week later says OK, I'll take it.

Recieve money, package it up, ship it to him.





Today, after a week or two, I get an email: "PAYPAL DISPUTE ESCALLATED TO CLAIM"

He opened up a claim, requesting 500 bux back, because I didn't include the:
1) intake with filter
2) 2 heat shields



WHAT THE ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never in any single one of the goddamn listings mentioned ANYTHING about any of that stuff. It lists whats included specifically and in full detail.

What a ******* scumbag



As everyone here knows, I have an excellent buyer/seller reputation on here, have never scammed or shorted anyone, and now this ******* wants to try to scam me out of 500

Well I'm going to provide all info for paypal, show them what a ******* scumbag he is, and if it comes to it, am going to be taking him to court. I will take this as far as It needs to go, but that ******* ******* isn't getting a penny from me.

Sorry, needed to vent

He is probably still trying to pay for that $500/plate restaraunt he bragged about going to awhile back.

I'd just close the account.

How for away from you does he live? That kind of thing would have me ready to jump in the car and look for his ***. I hate a thief. Hope you get it resolved and I hope that piece of **** gets what's coming to him.

He's only about 3-4 hours away. Trust me, if it comes to it....

And yes, this is ******* infuriating. I NEVER even remotely implied or mentioned that ANYTHING ELSE was included. He ACKNOWLEDGED that he's aware of what he's buying. Said that its kinda too much money for him and he's really "stretching the budget" for the items.

So now he wants me to pay him 3/4ths of the money back because he feels like he should have paid 200 bux for a 1200 dollar setup?

I expect this from overseas scammers.

Not someone 3 hours from me.

Well first.. i can kinda see the issue with the 2 heat shields as in this photo

http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g9...A/s4forweb.jpg

you have it shown in your cart, like your selling that. Easy mix up. The intake with filter, is just mind blowing. No were does your ad even show/mention intake, or filter. Plus $500 WTF is he smoking.

Did you at least already move the money to your checking account. I always immediately withdrawal the money to my checking and don't ship until it has posted in my account.

True, but nowhere in the title OR description OR any of the pm's that were exchanged do I mention anything about heat shields or intake.

That "shopping cart" pic was only to show people what this stuff costs new.

And I KNOW its not just a simple mix up, since he tried to knock the price down to lowball status like 5 times, and finally after seeing that I have lots of interest in these items and won't be selling to him he agreed to pay 720.

If I will be refunding ANY money to that ******* I WILL be getting my stuff back. No matter what. He's not about to try to get a 1100 brand new manifold+downpipe for 220.

So may get a chance to buy it yet

What a retard...

I specifically remember your thread said manifold and DP. Who the hell gets the idea of getting free stuff? I'm surprised he isn't trying to charge-back even more since you didn't include the car in your signature.

They only have authority to withdraw money to give back to the other party if it is sitting in your balance. They have 0 authority to withdrawal directly from your checking without your consent.
