Guys i am pursuing a tranny for my vette..i called the seller and spoke to this mans wife and she gave him my # to call me back. Steve did call me back and told me about the tranny and we agreed on the price...during the conversation he said he would have to get his brother in law to strap the tranny to a pallet for shipping..this would cost $100.00 for this alone excluding shipping...hmmmmm..i said ok,hey lets face it some family members will not do anything for you unless you pay them ...right ??..i told Steve to send me his address on RJ..he did and the address came back in AZ..not MO...I called him back and ask him what was the deal...He advised me he moved to AZ from MO and they still have the same cell #'s from MO..He said this was the reason he said his Bother in law would have to send the tranny...This made sense...
This was Friday night..he called me back Saturday morning to confirm his last name for the money order..the number came up restricted..i guess he was calling from his home # ..ands thats cool i understand this....
Well i had all day Saturday and Sunday to think about the deal..i decided this morning that I WOULD HAVE TO PICK UP the tranny in person..i JUST COULD NOT send $2600 to a person 2,000 miles away that i did not know..
i sent him a message by RJ telling him this.....i told him that i would drive more than 1/2 way to MO to meet whomever had the tranny and pay for it in person (HIS AD STATED HE WOULD DO THIS)..that way we are all protected..i said i would send him a $100.00 deposit to show my good faith...
Below i made a copy of his ad..it did say I WILL MEET 1/2 WAY from MO.
I have got on here in the past and have stated " do not make it easy on scammers" go get your item...i am not saying anything on this deal is shady..i am just practicing what i am preaching..i cannot afford to lose $2600...
Please tell me your thoughts here.......READ BELOW AD
