So yeah as it turns out i sent that person money too, but they actually sent me the injectors. The ones that you came and picked up from me, where the injectors that you go scammed on in the first place. Small world. I never really paid attention to the thread becasue i recieved my injectors. I paid through paypal though.

What kind of MO? Postal? Go though the post office for mail fraud. If other then contact the MO company and proceed with legal action from there now that you have an address and contact info.

sixshooter,

You, my man, are so friggin' full of win it's not even funny.

You get the rocket propelled chainsaw launcher award this month.



That's just how cool you are.

Thanks man!




On a happy note. I met rharris yesterday. Fellow Houstonian, fellow Aggie, and fellow Miata MANIAC. Really nice guy, and hooked me up bigtime.

I was just about to let all this go and move on with the build finally, but now that I have this scammer's number....

This is all I have on him.

For a scammer he's pretty slick. He either double sells real parts, or really does his homework. He can answer specific questions about parts, and sounds nice enough.

I still can't believe I got scammed as I'm usually very wary. I wouldn't even buy from one of our own forum vendors when he couldn't send me better pics.

This guy set everything up well, and then just dropped off the planet.

My mistake was sending a money order in my haste to get payment to a seller with a fast moving part and a fair price. Paypal had a couple of hundred in limbo while they authorized an account and made the transfer, and SO and I had sworn off allowing payments to hit credit card.

Don't be like me...I feel like **** and my budget is already tight enough. Worst part is that what was a well planned build ended up waiting on this douchenozzle.

**** the scammers.
What kind of injectors do you need? I have some I bought WAYYY back and they are just sitting til my build starts (long time from now). PM me for more info.

rharris took care of me.

Above he said he actually bought the injectors he gave me from this very scammer. Apparently he took two (or more) payments, and only sent out one set of parts.

Thanks for the offer.

18psi may still be looking.

People who are caught scamming should be hung by their *****, or something equally sadistically painful.

Completely fair necropost. No harm in bringing this to the attention of the people again.

Good luck :(

What sort of info do you have on him... What is his paypal address? Any phone numbers listed? Give us something to work with. Also depending on how long ago you got scammed paypal can get you your money back, file a dispute.
