    You have to keep in mind how many new accounts are made on a daily basis and how many new ads are posted everyday, that's a lot of work for any website host. I have learned to "flag" these ads and you bet that in the next 6-12 hours, if its a bogus ad, the people at RJ will remove the ad.
    ajk is not a schoolyard lawyer, he has been a member of this forum for some time and we all get a little defensive when people come on here trying to tell the guys on the website how to do their jobs.
    If you really feel you can do a better job, feel free to start up your own website and have a go at it.

    well the old saying 2 sides....it would be very hard to police every ad placed and thats a fact, but if its your business and you own and control a website then you might think about hiring a few more people to weed this type out. I know how this guy feels, several years ago i purchased a KB short block from a guy in New York for $5K, when it got here it was a chevy 283 engine block, went through all the crap to try and get my money back but never happened, at that time i did not know about the forum. anybody want a 283 block........$5K plus shipping. It would be a judgement call by racingjunk but when they see ads posted for a $50K john deere tractor for $5K or a 70 SS Chevelle in mint condition for $6500.00 might be a big flag with those prices and a new member, by the way in my case i did contact racing junk and they had other complaints against my seller but they said nothing they could do. Really I blame myself, if a deal sounds to good to be true......well shame on me.

    I feel for you, unless he screwed someone else prior to you how would anyone know he was a thief? Not trying to start anything here, just think it is impossible for RJ to police. Maybe the OP knows the dude is a crook, RJ does not, and I am not sure how they can

    my thoughts

    Two sided sword,with out the internet we do not even get the chance to buy and sell at this level, but now the opportunities open up for the good and the bad folks to do "busniess", its sucks but true. I have been burned by internet scams and bad deals, but I have been burned by local speed shops too, so its still Buyer beware !!!!!!!
    Do you home work, talk to the other party, get pictures, descriptions,honor payments, check them out on other sites, its not fool proof but it may help.....Good Luck !!!!!!!!!!!
