I take it that site admins here don't get involved to help with situations like this?

I PM'd Rick several months back, and he apparently asked Ben to make the situation right. However, Rick can't force someone to do something they don't want to do.

Maybe not, but he could take away his moderator role and hand it over to someone who is more ethically grounded.

I had 2 business transactions with Ben, in both of which he hooked me up big time... I think both were a little over a year ago. There's always a second side to stories like this, and whatever is happening with him, I hope this is taken care of to the satisfaction of all.

Sold a turbo to Ben a while ago. I'm sure there's an explanation for this, but I wouldn't mind hearing it...

I agree with Dopple on this and not really going to get involved but it seem like some part of this story doesn't seem right and unfortunately without Ben's side of the story no one can really assume anything. That and it just seems weird cause Ben's always been a stand-up guy and has helped me out many times and even hooked me up plenty of times.
