    Got took for $25K from a guy in Marlow Ok.

    I am a 100% disabled Viet Nam vet.I get a monthly check from YOU the people.I humbly apologize for believing a guy from Marlow OK.and buying a car sight unseen from him.
    He's got a good line of bull and being an old guy,I expect that people are going to be honest w/me.

    The guy advertises here so be careful and have someone look at any vehicle from him.

    sorry to hear that but why did you not get a "LOT" of close up pictures of the car before you paid him, I have purchased a few cars on this site (okay 2) and i asked for a lot of detailed pictures so i had a good idea what i was buying.

    If you have any doubt at all there are services you can use to check the car out and get a legitimate appraisal, its money well spent...

    First, let me thank you for your service to our country. You said he advertise
    on Racing Junk. Can you give us his user name? I hate to hear of anyone being
    being taken by a person who falsely describes what they are selling.

    I can't (now) believe that I did that either.Yes I'm an old fool especially for (still)believing that a mans word is his bond.

    His RJ name is da34guy.He's from Marlowe OK. he told me that the paint was gr8 but failed to mention that there were about 100,000 little bubbles in said paint,He also failed to mention that due to someone installing the wrong parts the doors would NOT lock.There was also a short & the battery would die after 3 days,The control bushings are rotted,the "cold" A/C isn't,the upholstery is next to trash.My fault for believing him?definitely.

    There's no fool like an old fool is true in my case.A mans word,A mans handshake ain't worth a darn anymore.

    That guy is all over the Internet. First step toward resolution is to document exactly how he scammed you, go to every other site he posts on, and make his life a living hell.

    I'm not too far from Marlow, OK and have several friends who live there and I'm in Marlow occasionally! Do you have a name of this person? I'm also a Vietnam era vet! You can PM me if you like.
