- The land of commies and socialists!
Oh how the times have changed. 10 years ago a couple of incidents like this would destroy this guy in the car world.Good lord!!! How in the holy hell is this guy still in business. Why are so many people supporting him?? I had a nearly identical experience as @Stangra. It was a nightmare for sure!
Before I placed my order IN JANUARY for an intercooler and flow mod for my 03 cobra, I asked him about how long it would be. He assured me "2 weeks and I will have it made and shipped out". I was excited. I paid the man $1399.00 plus $40 dollars for shipping. A few weeks go by, nothing. I message him and he tells me the usual lies. Says he's backed up and assured me it would be shipped out soon. We go back and forth for months with this. Then finally he tells me it's made, tested, boxed up and ready to ship, he just has to find it because he just moved shops. This is in July. 6 months after the original promise date. Again, I am excited. A damn month goes by and I don't hear anything. No product. No messages. So I reach out early august and am basically begging him at this point to just tell me the truth. If he can't make it happen, totally cool, just tell me and I will make other arrangements. I didn't hear anything from him (surprising, right. Haha) so I sent another message along the same lines, please tell me what's going on with my parts. I'm not a rich person and I can't afford to have this money tied up in parts I'm waiting on for months. I heard nothing back. Finally, in mid August he gets back to me saying "I'm so busy and I apologize". So I say cool, when is my intercooler going to be here. Now keep in mind he has already told me it's made, boxed and ready to ship. This a hole tells me "I'm pressure testing it right now, I will have it out in a week. This was in September. Hmmmm, real odd. Why is he pressure testing an intercooler that was already good to go. At this point I know he is lying to me. But still, I am trying to be understanding and support a small business. So I say, alright man, I will wait 2 more weeks. That's giving him the week he said it was going to be plus another week for some cushion. What do you know, 3 weeks go by and I hear nothing. No intercooler. And to add insult to injury, this guy posts a picture of an extremely expensive cnc table on his Facebook page. I'm thinking, oh OK, now I know where my money went. This guy is taking peoples money and buying a new shop and equipment with it. I would think it would be a higher priority for him to satisfy his orders instead of buying stuff with others peoples money. I am done at this point so I ask for a refund. He then gets back to me a week later and says he will refund me my money. I am a bit relieved at this point cuz it's finally over. 2 weeks go by and nothing. No refund. So again, I message him. He claims he already processed my refund. So I call my cc company. They tell me, no he has not processed any refund. More lies! Another 2 weeks go by and I message him again explaining to him what my cc company said. This is where it gets even worse which I didn't think was possible. At this point it's late November. A month after he told me he refunded my money. Absolutely unacceptable!! I am freaking out at this point cuz it seems he may be scamming me and keeping my money. I express to him my concerns. He then messages me with this arrogant attitude telling me he's not worried about it (well duh! It's not your money dick!) he was very condescending and tells me I don't know what I'm talking about and neither does my credit card company. Wow! Ok. I didn't realize I was in the wrong for being upset about waiting nearly a year for a product that I was told would be shipped out in 2 weeks. Man, I'm such jerk, right?! After this, the refund miraculously appears in my account, that is, with a catch. Stay with me.... Bet you didn't think it was gonna get worse! Ha!! It does. I got a refund for $1399. This guy kept the shipping fee. I am in absolute shock!!! Unfortunately, I am also a bit relieved cuz at least I got the 1400 hundo back. I sent him a message politely asking what the deal is. Why did I not get refunded the 40 bucks for the shipping. This was 3 weeks ago. He has since been on Facebook and ignored my message. This man stole my money. In the long run I basically paid this guy 40 bucks to put me through absolute hell for a year. Awesome!
For those of you that are supporting him still, I have one question, WHY?? He is a liar. He is a thief. I have proof of all of this if anyone needs to see it. Please stop supporting someone who is absolutely toxic to this community. I waited to post this because I thought he may come around and give me the rest of my money back but nope. So I am here sharing my experience so others don't get completely screwed by him.
In the end I'm just relieved I got most of my money back. Pretty sad, huh. This man stole from me and I am just going to have to let it go. Please, please stop supporting this business.
I think he is being kept afloat by deals with companies like Lethal and social media nut swingers.
If he continues screwing people like this he'll eventually go under.
