I couldn't make a transaction without photos. Esp 3500 bucks.

But like most who try to scam they end up sending the product. Esp after 370 gets involved.

Let's stop accusing the guy just yet and have Darkjak confirm it and I think he still has the paypal option. If memory serve, I did communicate with him on the Brakes sale and seems legit. Sometimes, we need to just wait it out a bit and not let our expectation of instant gratification trumps the delay that is reality.

I agree somewhat. Right now it just looks suspicious, but still can be explained. Life gets hectic sometimes, and things happen. He needs to contact the buyer and put his mind at ease. If he ends up trying to run a scam, WOW will have him wishing he hadn't soon enough.

I wouldn't be expected to wait if I spent 3500 dollars is all i'm trying to say! This isn't no 100 dollar part. This is big money!

For the record, I've only sent half so far $1800. I was going to send the other half as soon as I got pics but that still hasn't happened yet of course.
It hasn't been a full week quite yet. Sometimes, like Chuck says, you get caught up in life.

Everybody can get caught up In life 1800 dollars later. I just think its insanely rude to NOT answer or respond to a person who has SENT you money. Especially this amount. Ots ridiculous. His onyl excuse woild have to be tjat he ended up in tje hospital after a roll over. It does not take more then 2 minutes to respond. This is why this seems like you've been played.

Alright, maybe i should chime in since I bought the brake system from him

I'm not here to stir the pot, but I can tell you this. He was very responsive in terms of communication and pictures for the brakes sale.

Though his way of communicating through private messages may seem unprofessional, (u, ppl, lol, etc) his shipment arrived, along with countless pictures through emails.

I see he is in vegas? Not sure why he is not responding but I would assume he is caught up in his life.

I really hope he gets everything right for the buyer (pictures, communication, etc).

At the end of the day, I would suggest the buyer to wait for his reply and if the communication is not happening, then refund it though paypal.

Caught up with life? LMFFFFFFFFAAAOOO!! It takes 1 MINUTE to respond. Hahahahhaha.

I hope his got some SERIOUS excuse. If not, then he went about his way the wrong way. Causing the buyer to many worries he should have never even dealt with. I bet you his got the money though.

I'm just saying, I really wish he has an excuse for not replying his PM.

But again, he did not scam me so I can vouch that he was a legit seller.

I wish the buyer gets the kit

good practiceswould be to send what I call a hey how are ya? letter/notice just to state the latest action i.e. money received or status updates etc...... takes maybe 2 mins even in email after you get the paypal email saying "hey you got money"

hospital, jail, or dead are the only three excuses not to be responding by now. i hope none of those are the reason, but $1800 is no small change for me...

Hope this works out for you, DarkJak. Personally, I wouldn't pay without any photos.

+1 on asking for detailed pictures, this is totally offtopic from this thread but I once impulsively bought the item that i wanted and later got surprised for the condition, even tho it was told "fixed" but i was expecting a little better condition. but oh well its too late to regret my ignorance. haha

Any headway on this. Hoping this guy gets digitally crucified if he's using this as a scam. Still hope he pulls through though.
