    Now to show how quickly thing's can get blown way out of proportion :!:

    Some of you know ''Goomba'' he had a carb for sale i responded to his ad we reached a price he sent the carb the day he sent it i mailed him the money. A week later he still had not recieved the money,We stayed in constant contact with each other,I was worried and so was he. This was very reasonable on both side's. Well finally today he called me and left a message and i returned his call he recieved the money today. Now here is the tricky part, My money has been floating around the state of Tennesse for 5 day's i live in Virginia, Our mail goes to Ronoke, Virginia not Tennesse for postmarking. I think this might be some of the cause for some of the people having difference's on here. Thank God we stayed in contact with each other and got it worked out. I was ready to send the carb back to him on friday in which we had agreed that was the cut off day. Thank you Tony for believing in me that i had sent it to you.

    Mark you are right the whole thing was real weard. I just keep thinking you would not mess me over. I did call my BUDDY Shawn AKA Pink to vent about it and like he said things have a way of working out...and they did. Mark your a class act anytime you want to buy my stuff it's yours.. :wink: Thanks Goomba

    You could have just Ask me Goomba I would have eased your mind. I been on here a decade and know the regulars pretty well and would have no issues sending any of my stuff (and I have) to the regulars including Mark. We have a real solid base membership on this site and have been accused many times of being really close knit..you regulars know what I am saying here....scammers can't stand it when the boys get fired up..my job is easy when that stuff starts up cause the regulars take care of business and do such a good job of it I kick back and just read and smile until they ask me to do something. I have always said I work for the core members.Just like today bone hit me up with a Text on this scammer stuff and it got taken care off. I have several regulars cell #'s and they have mine...so yeah I guess that makes us the crew. Lol

    hell i would trust Merk with my life. Well in actuality i did 3 yrs ago when i moved down here. so if Mark says he will do something have no fear it will be done. And from what i know of the regulars i feel the same about them. we have seen the good and bad of each others lives on here

    Obviously the event was over and he was ticked off because he and his buddies had planned the whole weekend.

    Good deal, fellas.

    Goomba is a great guy to buy stuff from. I bust his chops all the time because he gives stuff away!! Fact is, he isn't in it for the money and simply just likes to help the next guy out because somewhere along the line, someone helped him.

    Shawn, That's how we got it done we both remained calm,Did not get excited, Talked all the way thru untill it was completed. If more people would do like myself and Tony did there would be alot less trouble with deal's on here :!: :!:
