holy smokes..... it sounds like this guy just made $700.00 for nothing. but i hope it still works out for you.

but with zero feedback. and starting out trying to sell something with such a price tag, and the price, well it just sounds far too cheap! jeez, what a bummer, and such a crappy way to start the new year.... amd having it posted all over, i dunno, sounds like a scam. and maybe someone in texas could track this dude down for you? ive bought a few items form dudes with zero feedback, and lucky for me, its always worked out.... the scariest one was my Trex 600E, the guy posted it for $1000.00, its came with 3 8S packs, TP1010C and 210 balancer, all in all at least a 2500.00 package, i sent the money via paypal, and 3, weeks later, still didnt get a tracking#, nothing, and the guy had all kinds of good feedback! after 3 weeks i was getting REAL NERVOUS. well all in all it worked out fine, the guy was just real slow to get it taken apart and packed up...... maybe thats the same scenario in your case, we can hope!

good luck! and file that claim RIGHT NOW!

ginnz.

I sold my Rex's to get into an MJ.

I thought Santa was bringing me a Joker.

She (girlfriend) bought the wrong heli. Under the tree was a Trex600.

So the Trex600 was returned to the hobby shop.

I told her to leave the buying heli gear up to me although it was a VERY nice gesture.

Because I 'thought' a Joker was sitting under the tree, I decided to buy a backup one off RR from another member.

I shelled out $750 for this Joker v1 CX.

Sent paypal cash on Dec.6
Chase said he'd ship it out as soon as he could.
Dec.15 is when I last heard from him.

He's been online on RCG (today at 4pm where he's read my pm's) and he's read my emails since.

No response.

I just filed a claim via paypal but don't expect to see any of the funds back if he withdrew it already.

My woman is not happy.

What a way to start a new year.

The one good thing is that in my personal life, my girlfriend's father (her folks live in Ukrain) was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the operation was on Dec.22nd. It was successful, so we are grateful.

Plus I got into a large AP contract just after the Olympics at some of the venues and our family holiday time was awesome.

Gotta look at the positive's.

... But honey it was only $$$

At the very least if the guy is just plain lazy with shipping or something came up, he should let me know.

I really appreciate it Mark and Stan.

A google turned up a trail that's easy to follow for the person named Chase.

Let's see how it pans out.

Just let me say that the Joker looked like it had not been run or at lease very little.Stan and talk about getting it at that time the person would take 400.00. It is a very nice ship and you got a killer deal if it shows up. We will let you know what we find out.

Go to the media station and ask if they can help with finding this person, someone is sure to have seen him or know of him.

The rest will follow and he will get what he deserves..how stupid can this guy get, does he actually think he can take the money and run with his picture posted on the ad.

Bud, don't let go of your hope of a refund just yet. I had a similar situation last year on another forum. It took Paypal approx 30 days to put the money back in my account. Took a while, but it was worth it. This is why you only do paypal as a gift for folks that you know and trust. Had the funds been sent as a gift, you would be up $hits creek. Keep your chin up bud, it aint over yet

All helis and planes have an expiration date stamped on them...you only find it after you crash!!

If he (seller) is legit and was asking for $400 originally, he should own up to that and refund part of the $750 back to me.

Thanks again Mark & Stan for getting on this so quickly.

I wish I was there.

I feel sorry for what happened. It could be me. I was about to buy that heli and after discussing it with my wife I dicided not to. You can contact the local police that covers the area where the shop is located and file a complain with them. Also you can contact the FBI and file a complain with them. Check with paypal because if that guy has a premier account is easy to get more info about him. You have his picture and that is good in the sense that he could be tracked down. I don't know how the laws from Tx are, but that crime could be Petit Larceny(a misdeaminor)
Here is a link to file a complain and learn about Internet fraud. http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx
Good luck. I hope you recover your money or your heli.

Stan already was ahead of me.

He took all of Chase's contact info and both hobby shops, spoke with Chase's dad (who is not happy about the situation).

It looks like things will sort themselves out.

I'm looking for a full refund via paypal or a hefty discount since he was asking $400 locally to begin with.

Makes me smile to know that there's still good guy's out there.

I would be doing the same thing Stan is down there in TX if someone was getting shafted in my area.

Looks like what goes around comes around.

I've helped out folks in odd situations and I'm getting help now.

My last email to him :
Hey Chase

I tried to contact you via RR, RCG and email. You haven't responded back to me.

Luckily, I have friends in your area who also frequent your hobby shop.

It looks like the Joker was original up for $400 locally.

I don't know you or what you're up to, but your dad's been contacted about this situation.

I'd like one of two things.

Either a full refund, or send the Joker with a refund of $200.

That way you keep $550. $150 more than was locally advertised at Larry's.

Cheers and Happy New Year

Jesse

I contacted Chase via facebook, email, pm on RCG and told him I had someone contact his dad and to get the ball rolling.

He's been updating his facebook everyday talking about skiing and flying.

So I sent him a message there.

He finally replied and apologized for not replying back to me.

He will refund $150 back to be to compensate for the lack of communication and ship the heli out when he gets home.

Looks like this will be a happy ending.

I'm sure he responded to me right away because his dad had a talk with him.

Regardless of a good deal or not, the experience is not a pleasant one.

Thanks again for everything Stan
