Another forum has this douchebag's address as his parents...?

Our shop is outside of town, but I drive a block away from "his" place a couple times a week - any more info on what happened to this tool, if anything?

Let me know if I can be of help.

i have an automotive repair business, i have a company mastercard, when ever i have a problem i call mastercard and they can block this person/business account till all is resolved, no money coming in from them {mastercard} every time the problem i had was resolved very quick, my 2 cents

I recently got ripped off by a member on this site. Is it ok to post his numerous usernames so people can see who he is and stay clear of this crook?
Thanks

You can file a claim in the YB.com Negative seller/buyer feedback section to alert others on the board

You should also file a claim with www.ripoffreport.com to make the alert more widespread. Please read that board as it has a lot of useful information.

Last you can file a claim with www.ic3.gov who works with the FBI and National White Collar Crime Center. Claims can be files on behalf of someone or as a group if needed.

When buying or selling anything please collect as much information from the person on the other end as possible. Things like home address (No PO boxes), phone number, full name and also check in the feedback section and with other members on their experiences. This will save a lot of headaches!!!

YB.com will not stand for the bullshit that has happened in a couple of instances. I will provide all information to the authorities. The buck stops at YB.com and we will not back down to any low life scumbag!!!!!
Thank you Monty for the info,This is a truly great site youv'e got going. I also want to apologize to you and other members for joining and venting over getting ripped off by Dominator engines. I only wanted to warn you and other members. I should have waited till I cooled down ! Thank You Monty again. SantafeGeorge

Howcare you getting ripped off? My dumb ass sent money to a business. I called the cops and was laughed wt. Why would i send money to someone i dont know? Crap...how can i argue with logic like that?
I live in jacksonville fl, if i could ever check or varify condition or availability of an item someone is selling, hit me up. Might save someone alot of heartburn. Joe
