Hi All,

Anyone here know this seller or live close by ?

Paid for these turbos...funds have cleared and seller has gone incommunicado. Hasn't responded to my calls, sms's or voice mails.

I hope he's all right because I don't want to believe that this was a scam.

Anybody within reach please let me know.

Cheers

Got several of my US friends to call...same state of affairs....no response just his voicemail.

At this point I tend to believe that he thinks he's made away with my funds. It's most unfortunate but we'll see what happens.

If anybody here lives within this address area

403 Heritage Cir
Streator Illinois
61364

Please give me a shout so we can check up on him at home.

Cheers

Hi,

No news from any member here?

It's most unfortunate that this has happened here....I guess no matter how old you are you learn everyday.

I've initiated a dispute ticket with PayPal....lets see if there's hope that the funds can be retrieved. Will keep you all posted.

Cheers

Quick Update

PayPal decided in my favor and has issued a refund for the full amount....A result !!!

Please be careful people......not everyone is what they seem to be. I've learnt my lesson.....all the same, how does one do business without trust ?

In 2007 I bought my E34 M5 Touring sight unseen and was sending my intermediary all the cash to complete the purchase. I had never met him before and everything was based on trust. needless to say that we're very good friends now and I visit him whenever I'm in the UK.

We learn every day.

Thanks to all those that reached out trying to help....I really appreciate it.
