    Scammer: unifiedracing (#61374) Buyers Beware!!!

    Hello all, I "bought" his 555 musi motor back on 6/14/2008 sending him a $500 deposite. He assured me I was the new owner and we agreed to work out the final payment/ shipping details in a couple of days. I sent him an additional $400 payment on 6/19/2008 with the intention of picking up the motor with a casheriers check for the balance on 6/21/2008. Once the weekend came he made up an excuse that he had to leave town and couldn't be there. I said ok, lets do it next weekend, which he agreed to. I was in contact with him almost daily and he assured me everything was ok and that I could come get the motor that next weekend. Well as the weekend approached he came up with the excuse that he didn't have the motor out of the car yet and couldn't find anyone to take it out, I stated that I wouldn't have a problem pulling the engine myself. That's when he said the motor had some metal shavings in the oil, so i couldn't come get it untill he figured out what was wrong with it. After about a weeks more of excuses/lies he finally sent me an e-mail saying the deal was dead and he was keeping the motor. (Sounds suspeciously to me like he was double dipping selling the motor to more than myself.) All the while he had the motor listed for sale of e-bay, which i found out later. Also he never updated the listing on here saying the motor was sold waiting for pickup hence the double-dipping! You guys have any suggestions? [/b]

    H2speeder, I cannot hand you $900 back. However, I do have an add on here for a 548 BBC. You can look at my ad. If you are interested, I would be willing to help you out. If you are interested, sent me a PM thru the forum or email me at shawn_pinkerton@yahoo.com. I hate to see anyone ripped off, especially a fellow racer.

    Well,Marcus messaged me back,claiming he doesn't know me or what I am talking about,this is tyipical.

    One thing you can do is call the Police in his neighborhood,maybe they can reason with him,before this goes much further.

    h2speeder, call here,I bet they can raise Marcus.

    Palisades Park Police Department
    275 Broad Ave Ste 1, Palisades Park, NJ 07650

    (201) 944-0900


    Of coarse h2speeder,you'll need proof of what you sent to Marcus,before they will go knocking on his door.

    If you get no satisfaction,you'll have to file internet fraud with him through the legal system,meaning take him to court.

    Since Marcus likes to travel,he'll have to TRAVEL to your neighborhood to go to court.
