    BEWARE OF JAMES W. RYAN jimsprostreet

    BEWARE OF JAMES W. RYAN or jimsprostreet

    BEWARE OF This Guy !!!!! [email protected] or jimsprostreet on racing junk. James E. Ryan 1103 South Oak Av. Freeport Il. 61032. He Is A Real Peace Of Work...Sold Him $2,000.00 worth of engine parts and shipped it to him Fed Ex fright only to find out his check is no good. I took his check in good faith but should have gave it two weeks to clear (my fault)but I thought he was on the up and up. Just like all scammers he wont return phone calls or email. Just thought the rest of us buyers and sellers might stay away from this guy and dont TRUST ANYBODY like I did. If anybody knows were he is please let me know. This is my first time getting stiffed for this amount and dont know what to do to recoupe the $2,250.00 that I am out of. Thanks....

    Looks like you learned a hard lesson here....Never and I mean Never send parts before the check clears unless you know this person or are certain he is as good as his word.

    I learned that as a teenager while with my fathers business.

    I am sorry about what happened, turn it over to the police, post office and internet fraud division.

    Get your money back and post details about this person, we have a tendency to help those that have truly been scammed.

    Post his name, address, phone etc.

    A Very Special Thank You To All

    I just want to take the time to all of you who gave me great advice on how to recoupe my money back from the scam artist JAMES E. RYAN aka jimsprostreet, [email protected] Also want to thank the Freeport Police Dept for there fine job in finding him. A note to all: Dont ship till the check clears, Wait 30 days if it is a out of state check. Its a real shame that people do these things to other people, but with friends like I have found here on it makes it a little easy knowing they care and are willing to help. Again I want to say THANK YOU...
