well honestlly it is a new era of internet trade. the deal started out by him advertiseing the gears for sale BRAND NEW for 100$,then he gets the guys check and deposits it then writes him back saying their was a typo in the add and the real price is 125$. this is where it goes south,the buyer then tells him to refund his cash and the drama begins!
they give this guy a week or so to refund the money,meanwhile he posts something to the effect of "what ya gonna do about it? these threats arent helping"
the threats of beatings and insertion of gears into the guys body cavitys comince.
then a member of the site chimes in and makes it very clear that he needs to refund the money,very soon or else,in a very polite manner.
no dice the guy still doesnt carry through and is cocky.
so they let him know how serious they are by posting some info,ip addy etc,simple stuff .
the guy still doesnt get it and acts tough.
so they go a step further,they let him know they have his addy and his screen name on other boards,as well as ebay,guys got like 8 deals on ebay and 3 negatives and one nuetral.
still doesnt get it.
more threats of violence surface and charlie wenzel has his picture posted and photochopped with some ah intresting aditions,my fav is the looter one!
guy finally decides that maybe they are serious so he backs down a lil bit and decides to send the gears.
the original buyer then hears that they are used! he refuses shipment and more threats and photochopping,then they post pictures of him,his family,the bussiness where he works,his girlfreind,and I think his sister even made it.
they also leak his cell phone and he starts getting calls from all over(this thread has allmost a million views! so you can imagine how many calls he is getting!) and text messages to.
they post pictures of him getting stuck on the beach threaten and eventually do email mom n dad.
he sends a 7-11 money order(found out that that is not a safe way to get money from a buyer) when he was specificlly asked to send a postal.
he has posted an apology that sounds more like hes ticked that he got caught than sorry,and the buyer is waiting for the check to clear.
it doesnt sound so bad hear but keep in mind they posted pictures of his g-freind,threatened to call in false reports to the pd that he was carrying a firearm,they posted high school year book photos,they linked every other forum he was a member of to this thread,found out his phone number,even posted part of his ss number! there where quite a few people that are local to him that spoke up and said they knew him a couple comented about how his folks where good people and didnt deserve the son they have.
they even exposed the fact that he and some freinds stold some gas while driveing around in moms corvette with out permission. these guys OWNED
this guy over 125$.
hopefully the other scum on the net will read about it and think twice about scamming.
