Just heard from Sleeth. He's asking me for commitments now. I'm thinkin' that's a good sign (he's sweating now), but I believe that he's just searching for a way to trip me up and get out of the situation. I really believe this guy is a criminal and even if I do ship the carbs to him COD, he'll make some kind of claim that I've done something to the carbs to ruin them just to get my money back.

At this point, I believe I'm going to pack the carburetors up and send them to Patrick James (Pro Systems) for an itemized evaluation of their condition. At the very least they'll both need new throttle plate assemblies and brobably metering blocks. It's hard to believe that sand blasting hasn't ruined them. If he felt the need to abrasive blast carburetor parts he should have known to use baking soda (even that isn't real smart). Anyway, the results, along with the original ad, and the entire email string will then be forwarded to his probation officer. His current activities are almost certainly a violation of any probation conditions.

I've gotten to the point where I'd rather eat the monetary loss and let his probation officer take care of things.

After you notify his probation officer, send him a soap on a rope with a little carb stamped in the soap.

Scorp, your suggestions always make the situation a little easier to tolerate.

BEWARE! Sleeth has a 69 items for sale on EBay listed under the name USACONSIGNMENTS. This time he has a 100% feedback rating with 67 items. I really don't know how he keeps hacking their system with new names and feedback ratings, but beware.

If you look close you will see that all those feedbacks are where he bought from someone else , not a one is where he sold to someone

How is your progress in chasing him? Could you give us an update of what you can legally share?
