Sorry to hear that.

I hate buying things from catalogs.

I hate anything but cash and carry.

Here is a link to a list of scams that craigslist warn their users about. Hopefully this will help you guys from getting scammed in the future...

I'll be more than happy to send my brother over there as he drives to the grandparent's house in San Diego once a month.

Dang dude! That sux... well lesson learned, eh?! I hope this helps the rest of our gearhead brothers on the forums to keep an eye out for scammers. Great job on letting us in on your horrible experience. Now we can avoid that lame a$$ **** (EvoRacer619)

Hey, if anyone else ever gets scammed let us in so we know what and/or who to look out for. Agreed?!

Thanks, I like your avatar too. Yeah, your right... I suppose it would just get out of hand and some ppl might just take advantage of the process and cry wolf. It's sad tho... to see fellow forum brothers (and/or sisters) getting taken advantage of. I guess you just gotta watch your six on every private party deal you make.

Well, it sounds to me that you're a Noob............You gotta pay first and then receive the item.......If you're calling someone a noob, check if you're not .

And to jus24112:

Make sure mods see this, and if he's still on EvoM have them do something about it

If only seller will shipped through C.O.D. then there won't be any problem on the buyer being SCAMMED. But it's the safest way for the buyer. Even Paypal is not safe, talking through some bad experiences with them. The only bad side about C.O.D. is when the buyer refuse to accept the merchandise then the seller is obligated to pay for the shipping.

This is the reason why i only do CODs. It's safer for both the buyer and the seller.
