    Joel Atkinson in Caledonia,Mi.

    Anyone on here know this guy.I had an aeromotive fuel pump on here for sale a while back.He emails me and asks If I would trade for a holley 350 dominator pump.I said cool.So since I ship from here at work I told him to go to the post office and give me the tracking number when he sends his pump out and after I got the tracking number I sent mine out.Well I start tracking the number after a couple days.It was due here on a saturday and never showed up.The tracking message sadi vacant address so it was being returned to sender.A few days later I call him and he said he got the pump back the day before.So I give him the address here at work and he said he'll go to ups and send it the next day.Cool I thought.Here it is almost 2 months later and no pump.He won't return my calls after I have left several messages.So If anyone knows him or where he's at tell him to call me at 512-627-6163 so he can man up and make this deal right.
    Or can I go to the authorities in Caledonia with the tracking numbers and file on him if this doesn't get resolved?

    Interesting possible scam I think.

    He sent the item or any item for that matter to a bogus address to get a legit tracking number, gave it to you so you would ship-you did. And then the USPS re-delivers back to him the item because he sent to a bogus address.

    So now he has your item and his.

    I think you need to gather every piece of documentation and contact the USPS immediately as this smells like mail fraud.

    Never seen anything written about this type of thing before.

    I'll caveat this because its fresh with a "just my humble opinion" sticker.

    Cowards often find courage behind a keyboard. If you want to get personal, look me in the eye when you say it, and be man enough to deal with the consequences.

    Bullying whiny little scammers everywhere. Don't like it? Just keep crying.

    I thought about contacting USPS but I don't know what they could do with just the tracking #.Thats all I have is my # and the one he gave me.

    Go ahead and contact the USPS with what you have, get on this guy like a "rat on a cheeto". If you don't he'll get away with it for sure.
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    bigs1975 i checked with the guys i know from Calidonia and they didn't know him. Sorry. I guess get your info together like scorp said and go after him. Give me more info on him. How old,where he races, what he drives, anything you can think of it might ring a bell with someone around here. Send it to me in a pm if you want.
