I just want to say thank you to those I have dealt with on here that are on the up and up! I have bought a few things through eBay - that great used part marketplace most of use from time to time.
Until recently, I have never had a problem with anyone online, but lately, this one clown has taken up a lot of my time and all of my patience!
Some of you know the story - said he'd ship it out...didn't respond to my emails...until I started a dispute through paypal that froze his account. Hell...he CALLED then!Told me on the phone his girlfriend was supposed to ship it and just found it in her car. (1050 dominator - real easy to lose under the Mc Donald's wrappers). In his response through paypal, his reason was she lost the shipping slip. So...onto the carburetor itself.
The carb he sent me is in a 9375 box, but is actually an older (non screw-in air bleed carb with the raised lip around the venturis) 8082.
So upon FINALLY getting the carb (12 days after he received payment) it turns out to be mis-represented and the wrong freaking carb! I composed a fairly nice email and sent it to him explaining what he did was wrong, and that I would invoice him and upon receipt of the $ in my paypal account, I would ship him the carburetor. After no response (shock and awe) I sent him a text message (thanks for calling!) letting him know to check his email and his paypal - that he sent the wrong carb. He immediately responded that he was in there right then and to invoice him - and he thanked me for my understanding. My understanding is GONE!
Here in about 30 minutes, me the wife and little man are headed to Little Rock to look at buying a Tahoe. About an hour after that - I am buying another carb and if he's not come through with the $ by then...I'll let paypal settle it and freeze his account again.
Hey! Bob in South Carolina bought my old 496 through Travis on here. I just sold my old 1250 and Profiler intake to Jack. Is it so hard to tell the truth and NOT try and scam anyone?
Ok. I'm done ranting. For now.
