Work VS-XX wheels and BC RACING BR COILOVER for SALE

rim offset are not what he posted it's about +20mm not 14mm as originally stated in his FS thread
rim set was rebarelled and he didn't mention
front tires are not 60% as stated in his original ad - tire shop measured 40% at best

the last 2 issues are not big deal, but the offset is. since i'll be putting it in a Z33, the offset would require me to run a spacer. if i would have known, i wouldn't have bought the rims. i only found out when i got home, i know i should have checked, that's my fault for trusting and giving him the benefit of the doubt. he seemed like a nice dude. i only checked for curb rash and hurried home. got excited too quick, but i guess lesson learned. i offered a solution - 2 things A. either return the rim or B. he gets me a spacer. The reply i got was it's not his fault. well, i'll deal with it... i just hope i don't run into him anywhere. i hate dishonest people and if it's an honest mistake, correct it. i gave you the chance do what's right. i made a mistake of trusting the seller and didn't check for all this until i got home. oh well, i'll get some spacers and deal with it. you'll get what's coming, one way or the other.

STAY AWAY FROM user TBOX!!!! email bradfordlacross@yahoo.com

I bought a set of Rays from him, he shipped them and they where damaged. I sent him messages and spoke with UPS to file a claim. UPS agreed to pay to fix the damages. and TBOX kept all the money and will not respond to any form of contact. total BS.
Just a freindly warning to avoid him.

Thats bull right there. Either ups or the seller is responsible depending on the damages done to the wheels. Sorry to hear that he's trying to stick it to you. Hit him back with pay pal.

yea, it just sucks that i couldn't really do anything... ups was responsible - they paid the SELLER (it's how they do things...) the funds to fix the product and he, in turn was supposed to transfer the money to me so i could get the wheels repaired. i called him like 2 months after and he answered the phone, then pretended like he couldn't hear me.. just an all around bad time dealing with him. never again. just wanted to warn others.

Did you pay via paypal? If you did you should definitely dispute the charge... might be too late by now though.

I tried to dispute it, but it was too late - by the time UPS "investegated" the damages done to the wheels and then sent him the check, it was too late. I'm over it now. Just pi$$e$ me off that the world still has people in it like that. Oh well. Karma will bite him in the a$$ eventually.

Default Jmbeebe0722 use caution

Contacted this seller Jmbeebe0722 thru the classified to buy a set of mats. I noticed he was a new member but the product looked good and he was able to text me pictures. We agreed upon the price for the item plus shipping so I mailed him out his check. I no sooner got back from the post office mailing his money and he texts me back that he wanted to cancel the sale as he found someone local. I stated I had already mailed his payment and he said okay. I good faith I tried to call him and he couldn't even return the call. Then I noticed that ther is a posting on the forum from another member boasting what a great set of mats he just purchased from guy.

Used extreme caution if you choose to deal with this guy as you are apt to send payment for an item and he will sell it to some one else. Now it will interesting to see if he returns my check.

no offense but that doesn't seem all that bad, yes it was wrong of him to sell it to someone else but he found it less of a hassle to sell locally then ship it, and you are not even sure if he has cashed the cheq or he has just thrown it out or not. i would have been more patient till you heard back about the cheq before going and calling someone out, once again i understand it was not right of him to sell to someone else

Doesn't really sound like a scam as much as just hurt feelings. You didn't mention if the buyer was infact local to him. If you are worried about the check you should go to the bank and place a stop payment on it. There might be a fee but this is exactly why 99% of people on the forum use paypal if not buying something in person.

EDIT: The buyer was 11 miles away from the seller... sorry but I don't think that had malicious intent, just bad timing.

ZedDominator - zdominator2009@gmail.com

Purchased a set of nismo wheels from this member. After a month without a tracking number provided, paypal issued me a full refund, thank god. By all means, please avoid this seller. I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone else.

I'd like to add vitinvictor1 to this list. He's since taken down his sale thread of his evo r 3 piece lip. I paid his asking price of $135+fees on Sunday January 20th and he said he would ship out on the following day. He was unable due to personal issues, so I understood and was patient. Each successive day was another excuse as to why he couldn't ship out. Then he did not reply to my text that I sent on January 26th asking if he was able to ship until I had voiced my displeasure on his sale thread. He says he will ship the lip, so I give him the benefit of the doubt.

Today at 0555 he texts me saying 'shipping to las Vegas is $70... can't loss all because I'm selling it to buy a new bumper..... Sorry' at this point I am Fed up and all him to refund my money I sent in full, which is $141. He sends $136. I request he send the remaining $5 and tell him that I am displeased and that I am over the whole transaction. He sends me a text saying 'Wtf wrongs with you I don't have top stole your money!! You think I would like to get an enemy for 3 or 4 dollars!!??? Come on!!!! I send the money you said!!!! And I say you sorry for cannot send it so whatever with you then.' I wanted the $5 for the principle of it, not because I need the money.

Buyer beware of member vitinvictor1. Worst transaction I have ever had. Very unprofessional and deceitful.
