    BEWARE OF A KELVIN DEDMON IN IL.

    here is the deal;;this guy contacted me about buying a set of new diamond pistons i had on RJ for sale;;i informed him i was selling pistons because i wanted to go with higher comp pistons..he informed me he had what i needed so i told him if he wanted we would trade pistons.he said he would check to be sure his pistons would work for me..he got back hold of me a few days later saying his would be right for me and we exchanged addresses.i sent my pistons to him on or about dec 12th[give or take a day or two]..waited 2 1/2 weeks and no pistons .called him and he informed me his pistons he was tradng me was wrong size so he said he would just buy mine.i droped price down for him $100.00 because i'd seen a set on RJ i needed for $100.00 less then what i wanted for mine.thought i'd help him out that way.all i wanted was a set of pistons i could use.he said he would send money that day..that was 3 days before christmas;;as of today i have not seen any money for my pistons..i've called him 3 times in the last week and half and he doesn't answer his phone..i get answer machine saying it is unique motorsports;;i left 3 messages asking if he has sent money yet for pistons and if so when it was sent and if not then when will he be sending money;;have got no return calls from him..STARTING TO FEEL I'VE BEEN SCAMED;;you guys think i'm jumping the gun here..if so i'll delite this warning?

    I know Kevin (not Kelvin) personally, and called him using the number you posted.

    Amazingly he picked up on the 4th ring. Not sure how I got through so easily when you didn't.

    I told him about this thread and how to reply to it.

    He said he's not screwing you, and you should already have your money.

    I would imagine he'll be responding shortly.

    Glad it's been resolved.

    I didn't figure Kevin would be trying to screw anyone.

    This guy (Kevin Dedmon) is "flighty". I advertized an RV here and told him he had to purchase through ebay. He got a little pissy because someone else looked at it and wanted to buy it but I told him if he wanted it to bid on ebay. Well he won the bid over the person who had already looked at it and was willing to buy it. Kevin won the RV by 100. ($8000.) when he came to look at it he didn't like the blemishes I had warned about or the small bathroom I had good pictures of. He didn't take it and wanted his money back, I followed my wife's advice and gave it to him and even though he ruined a legitimate buyer for me because the buyer purchased a different one. He didn't offer any compensation for the trouble he cause and doesn't care. I hope you think hard about dealing with this temperamental idiot. He is trouble.
