    Robert allen from st. Augustine, fla..... Aka southeren customs

    I have an ad posted on RJ, titled LS7 WANTED. This guy calls me and says he has one, that he pulled out of a 2009 Z06 wrecked, with 9k miles. He is a truck driver, supposedly for Swift Trucking, and he can drop it off near Cleveland Ohio next week. He only wanted $2500.00 for the motor ( $3500.00 w/ 6 speed). This was his price, not mine. I paid him $200.00 down payment with Pay pal immediately. He is a member here and had engines for sale, seemed like a decent guy who just wanted to get rid of some parts in a hurry. He continued to give me the run around about the engine. I paid him the deposit on Oct. 17th. Now maybe something happened...he sold the engine...he realized it's worth a lot more than $2500.00...I don't know and don't care. The point is....he contacted me, took the deposit, and needs to return it, or be tagged as a known scammer here and kicked off RJ. Anyone who has dealt with me knows that I'm fair in every deal, and I know $200.00 is not a lot. However...a thief is a thief....$200.00 or $200,000.00. If anyone else has dealt with this guy, let me know how it worked out. I don't see his ads here any more.

    Ad #182315732...2014 Corvette engine out of a wrecked corvette. This is the same guy, trying to scam somebody else, disguised as a new member.

    I've already done that. It seems they have adopted a new policy. Down payments are not eligible for disputing. Of course, I'm trying to get them to do something, but I don't have much hope for getting the $200.00 back. In fact....let me take this opportunity to apologize for supporting Paypal in discussions with other members, in the past. You guys were right Paypal sucks. It will be a cold day in Hell when I use them again.

    He's at it again! Same add as two years ago, nearly got me! He's been arrested but I'm not sure under what charges.Capture.jpg

    Also selling over facebook, corvette forum, yellow bullet and a few others.
