Scammer WARNING!! "Garage.east"
So far he's ripped off myself and at least 2 other members here on this board. No one should buy from him. He has a good story. He gives u his cell number so u think he's legit, he'll tell to send payment, then never sends tracking numbers or products he promises. He even posts in his ad that he preferrs local pick up.
hey admin, can we ban this guy and make sure he doesn't join under a different name?
here's a post for reference where he's screwed a bunch of us.
Me for $425, another guy for $825, and more.
and feel free to fuk with his cell# 315-209-3272
and email for payola:
anyone else, post your experiences with this ass.

Something may have happened with him given that he isn't even responding to the paypal claims. You guys will get your money back if he doesn't.

I'd remove his cell and e-mail info - I understand you're mad but anything could have happened on his end. It's not clear that he's scammed you guys yet.

If he put that he prefers local pickup, that means he actually has the products and was willing to sell them in person for cash.

Unless you have evidence that he really is ignoring you (picked up then hungup the phone, recent flaky correspondence), he could've died for all we know/death in the family/house burned down.

Edit: he hasn't even logged in since 3/29

Yeah, I have to agree with burnout... I wouldn't necessarily say he's a scammer yet. It always sucks when you feel like you've been taken, and worse yet, you have to fight to get your money back. But you don't have definitive proof yet that he's a scammer. Only that he's gone completely silent. Maybe the guy's been in a car accident, had a death in his family and is out of town/the country....or worse yet, he died.

He's already been banned, but by doing that, you've effectively removed one form of communications he has with you. Fortunately, you have his phone number...

Hope this works out for the best. In the meantime, take a deep breath.

I will post my experience...bought a set of heads from me and apparently he did this with money that was scammed from you. I am sorry to hear

The plot thickens...

As long as he doesn't respond to the PayPal claims within 30 days (?) you guys will get your money back, regardless of what happened to him. If he was a true scammer, I would think he'd fight the PayPal claim, making it harder for you to get your money back.

Garage.East is banned until this is reconciled. And don't wait the full 30 days - charge it back to your credit cards. PayPal does very little to help those who use their system and haven't bought off eBay. If you end up getting the parts (unlikely), then send him a money order and call it a day.

That sucks, hope to see this issue resolved for you guys.

keithk831 04-09-2011 08:22 PM

Anyone in Central NY care to pay him a visit? IDRVSLO has his address...

IDRVSLO 04-09-2011 09:45 PM

Indeed I do, that will not be revealed until this is resolved completely.

Burnout and Invar... u have a good point, but it just smells real fishy. i guess i'm also a pessimist when it comes to stuff like this. i grew up in city, and had to deal with shady characters plenty of times. i gave him ample time to respond before jumping to conclusions as well. This guy appears to be good at what he does, and the best ones make you believe they are totally legit. Lets see what happens. i'll remove his personal info for now.

rapture 04-10-2011 08:13 AM

i say you guys drown his ass in old tranny fluid !!! ewwwwughghghg worst stufff ever!

Wouldn't it make more sense to allow him the ability to make posts (and monitor them) until he is proven to be unscrupulous? :confused:

Good luck guys. Free bump.

micmicmotorbike 04-10-2011 08:44 PM

Sounds like this douche is really a scammer. another member here received payment via different paypal email, but same name. sounds real strange.
what a waste this guy is.

Leonardo 04-10-2011 09:38 PM

I banned him on NASIOC as well. Didn't want members there getting bitten as well.

Now, I'm watching to see he don't register under another SN and recommend the same be done here.
