I will confer with the FBI guys later on fraud and this guy knowingly witholding information for an inter-state sale.

I do think it is strange that if I ship this back to the seller and get a refund provided that:
1) The seller has his useless part back and is out no money (Net zero for transaction)
2) The buyer has no part, and is out $50 for shipping it back to the seller (net -$50)

How is that fair?
If Thomas doesn't refund, you should discuss this with Paypal. I suspect they don't appreciate people working-around their system and he'll most likely lose his account.

One more disturbing item is the fact that when the head arrived here, several cam cap bolts were missing. I wasn't too worried about the missing bolts themselves - more worried about the fact that missing bolts indicate that the cam caps had been removed and the seller would DEFINATELY have seen the damage. So, he saw the damage, and chose not to mention it.

Now he claims that the damage should have no effect on the cylinder head at all.

There are two possible scenarios:
1) Seller isn't smart enough to realize that a destroyed bearing makes a cylinder head unusable and sent it out without bad intent. However, he should make it right by refunding the money, now that he is informed of the fact that the cylinder head is junk, and it's condition was not properly represented.
2) Seller is purposely fraudulent, and won't refund because that would eat into his profit from selling defective equipment.

this assumes thomas doesnt live in parents basement, as college students don't typically have their own house to reside in.

He's in CA? Where in CA? I can pay a visit if not far.

I'm very persuasive

I don't think he should be allowed to have other for sale threads until this is resolved.

Seller refuses to return money. Waiting for a Paypal decision. I'm not sure why Paypal is taking so long.

Case Update:

PayPal boned me.

Quote from Paypal:
"After careful consideration, we're unable to decide this claim in your favor at this time.

The item is not in the same condition as when you received it."

Arghhhh! Seems like they are claiming that I did this damage somehow? What a bunch of morons!
