I'm pointing this out one more time. Infractions are being handed out to folks that can't follow what has already been mentioned once in this thread. The thread is here for updates and information for the folks that are actually impacted, anything else at this point is off-topic and is getting in the way of a resolution.

No more warnings, folks. Offending posts removed/infracted.

I'm pretty sure some of it was mine. Contacted by him yesterday via email about sending me a money order. But I've heard that before. So far I've avoided going legal as I suspect that would just shut him down and rule out ever getting the money back. If it gets to that point it will be worth doing I suppose just for revenge.

Good for you. I've gotten more emails with promises to pay with interest but nothing more. Of course I got the same promises a year ago.

I am shocked that in 6 pages, he hasn't made any effort to discuss this openly. Although, I am not surprised he isn't a sponsor any longer, I would have thought such a financial luxury would have been untenable long before now.

Chargebacks typically must get started early in the process. Pretty easy for a merchant to keep promising resolution until it is too late. Consumer law is not everything it is cracked up to be, particularly if the merchant knows how to work the system.

Can you tell me some important forum where we can take as well? So those affected can continue to work, not to cheat more.

I posted the law enforcement entities that you can contact several pages ago.

Random people on Internet forums aren't going to be able to help you very much with a real world solution - you'll need to either work it out with the company or use legal means to reach a resolution.

We are just keeping the communications here to protect our members and to encourage the vendor to continue making efforts to resolve the complaints/issues - but we have no authority or leverage to "do" anything.

I am sorry for bothering.
Legal means is dead end. I doubt a lot the efforts of the seller. Too much money, too long.

Not bothering at all. I'd love to help you if I could.

So you've contacted those agencies and they could not help you in your situation, or are you just assuming that legal means are a dead end?

I just assuming that legal means are a dead end. The only path is to prevent further cheating (So I want to know other forums where it sells)

I guess its ice cream business (Adam has them) is in ruin. How to act on the legal means against someone who only has debts, also from another country.

this post really concerns me since ive had issues getting my cams from him, out of a order of pistons and cams it took 5 months to get pistons after threatening to take my money back and still no cams. will have to see what he says in the morning, even emailed him back appologizing for some of that anger in my previous two emails but if i dont like what i hear ill have to run down to JAG pretty sure the army lawyers will help me for free if it needs to come to that. definitely will not purchase again though

especially since i wanted staggered kelford cams which he claims never showed up to his distributor after telling me it would be too easy to get them. so i changed it to any set of 272 cams since he said he could get them in a week, 2 weeks later and being told the items here being over nighted on a daily basis still nothing.

if he dosnt resolve mine though im pretty sure CID gets involved in fraud against Army service members, i know they are the ones who arrested a local business for selling a service member a car and never providing a title..............def not people i would want to be involved with

2. He notifies me a few days later his bank won't process the card because of an issue on his bank's side. Asks if I can pay by check. I do. He's a my350z sponsor with good feedback with an active posting history and other members say good things about him. On this basis I trusted him.

3. He cashes my check and orders the brakes from Japan. So far, so good. then a really strange thing happens - a week and half later three separate charges for $3,000 appear on my credit card from Z1.

4. I contact him, he says the bank must have finally processed the charge. This made no sense to me as it was processed as 3 separate charges totaling the original intended charge. He says he'll reverse them immediately. He has cashed my $9000 check and charged me $9,000 at this point. No product shipped as the brakes are on order from Japan.

5. Over the next 3 weeks 2 of the charges ($6,000 total) are finally reversed. I paid the $3000 charge left without realizing it (card I use for business travel with large monthly balances). So at this point, I'm out $9,000 in cash on the check and $3,000 in the credit card payment, or $12,000 total.

6. This starts a 1 month long effort to get the $3,000 charge reversed. I had to file with my credit card company and have them conference call him with me on the line to resolve it. Finally successful. Now I'm just out the $9,000 I paid him by check.


7. Throughout this time I am talking to him about the brakes and the $9,000 check he cashed and when I will get the brakes. Throughout this he comes clean on how his company was hit by fradulent charges from overseas buyers, his bank had frozen his charge accounts and his company is in dire financial straits, but he assures me he will pay me back no matter what. We agree to cancel the brake order and he will pay me back. He says he will start paying me weekly to pay me back. We are now in early 2011 at this point.

8. After several weeks I get a $1,000 money order from him to start the refund process. Another $1,000 follows about 2 months later. There is another payment back to me for another $750 around June of last year. Throughout this I am calling and emailing him asking for money back and I receive repeated assurances he is sending me another money order "this week" or "by Friday". Those never materialize. The refund back to me for the $9,000 is stalled at $2,750.

9. He still owes me over $6,000 for brakes never shipped. He went radio silent on me last June and I haven't seen any money since.

10. I traded emails with him this week. More of the same. He says he can't send anything now. He is finally getting his business back on solid footing, but his girlfriend has had medical problems for the past 2 months and he can't send me anything now with no commitment when he will.


So I'm really glad to hear he's just a really great stand-up guy with your order for a handful of dollars.

Joe

Again, I would recommend that folks with a problem seek out help via the legal options available and that I listed previously. Even if you have a verbal arrangement, I would make sure that I had it in writing and speak to legal counsel (or authorities and law enforcement). Trade crimes, fraud, credit card fraud, bank fraud, and some of the other alleged crimes are very serious, especially across state and international lines. Additionally, with multiple complainants, it becomes easier to threaten prosecution as a criminal enterprise if there is an ongoing pattern of repeated intent.
