    I wouldn't spend that much online again! I will only buy small ticket items from now on...if the savings are definitely worth it and also after doing my research more thoroughly!

    It really is not worth the hassle!

    No actually, the next day after the authorities spoke to him, he sent me an email giving me some bullshit story about how his suppliers screwed the pooch. He then came out and asked if I would like a refund. WTF??? IF????? Hell Yeah! I told him to refund my money immediately! He did after a couple of more days. Asshole!

    I say, good job brother! I know there is some risk of internet shopping. I've been shopping on ebay for 8 years now and have only been screwed once. Got my money back though. It's a royal pain in the ass when someone tries to fuck with your money and time.
    Would I make any internet purchase of +$1000.00 from a private individual, definately not now! But I always use a separate charge card for these kinds of sales. Better the crooks try to make off with the banks money than with my own. The big banks can go without their $2600 for months; I could not. I need to pay for stuff like...rent! Plus, the banks seem to take a little more action when it's their money that's been jacked! Again, great job!!

    I have no trust in any one selling on line. If it's too far for me to go see I don't buy it.Shop at home.Unless it's a well known company.

    Or some big ass JL Audio Speakers...but they are either blown or its just a list. I saw some guy actually bid on a list. I let him know and he was really grateful and retracted his bid. He got lucky because I saw his bid and notified him. But think about it...how many actually notice it? It is some small fine print buried in the 4 page description.

    UPDATE: I just got a call from Hanover Park Police Department. It seems that there are three more victims of this scam with the Caprio Motorsports on Ebay. The LEO informed me that I was the only one lucky enough to get my money back. Man, I feel good about that. What was that about Karma.

    BTW, Got my Ford 9" EATON POSI, 3.70 gears, Aluminum housing, drain plug, etc...coming this week. It should be installed and ready to go by next Monday.

    He thought he was gonna get $2668+ that easily? He must be DEE DEE DEE!
    So did you end up gettin ur money back from Paypal, I work there so I hope all was returned. The way it works is we would bring his account negative if he didnt have the money and put a limitation on his account so he couldnt use it till the negative balance was paid. Then if left unpaid he would end up going to collections and if it goes further than that well sucks to be him

    I got scammed once by a auto parts website during the holiday season. They took orders sent a couple emails but never sent any goods. I waited 2 weeks and after another week of trying to contact them I called my credit card company and they said they would refund me and go after them. I got my money and never heard another word from it.

    None at all. The car feels a little slower though. It could just be me though. I think I need to drive it some more before I make a decision as to how good it seems.
