Default buyers beware, he is at it again!!

I bought from this guy awhile back and he is back with a somewhat new name http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/muster95123/ He used to be mustman or mustman95 if I remember correctly. Screwed me over on my purchase and ended up having his old account closed by ebay!!

sticky the thread if you can.

yeah the pictures he's using are all sourced elsewhere, the "open" diff he's selling, isn't even a picture of an open diff.

It's supposed to be a clear shot through there.. if it had a bar going across the axle holes it would be an open diff..

the guy uses pictures from other sources while the parts are still on the car, then takes forever to remove them after selling with the impression that they are already removed and ready to ship.

He has at least 3 different accounts on ebay. I bought from him, but was lucky enough to get my money back. Buyer Beware!

So i told him that there was no such thing and to stop with the misinformation. I got a rather snappy/nasty email back telling me to mind my own business. The email was immediately followed by an apology and saying that he did some research and found that the MSM is indeed a 4.10 rear gear lol.

he might be some sort of uneducated doucher, but he does have +160 feedback on ebay, with tons and tons of miata parts showing sold to satisfied people

from what I see, I'm not convinced he's a scammer, as much as a guy who should understand what reserve auctions are.

And thats next for me cause i dont want to have a turbo then blow my rear end and have no money to afford a rear end...LOANS!!! Lol my course is only 400$ a year its an apprentice so i get paid and its 3 years so i pay 1200$ for 3 years, and each year they give you a grand for completing it so i make 1800$ to take it plus all the money i make hello begi kit this winter

I spoke to him on the phone this morning...he said he made a mistake on the gearing..thats why he removed it from e-bay. So we talked for a bit and he said it is in his car right now..he wanted to try it out and see if it feels good for his S/C miata...but if I wanted to purchase it he would remove it and sell it to me...just paypal him a deposit and he will hold it for me Thanks for the heads up..something is fishy Sounds like alot of work..install then remove 2 days later.......Hmmmmm
