Anybody know brandov2 AKA Brandon Peerce from mesa arizona? I sent him a postal Mo on 12/29 for a gv1 and sensor.He contacted me on 1/9 and said his wife had been sick and he hadn't got it mailed yet. I sent him a pm about a week later to see if he got it mailed, but he has not been online. I was hoping to get a phone number so I could contact him. Any help would be great, Everett

Dont know, but after reading many of these it seems, right after the transaction somebody gets sick! I am starting to get sick just reading of people getting sick. Everyone doing a transaction that goes sour seems to get sick all of a sudden. Could be Im never sick and just tired of sick people complaining about being sick. If your feeling sick dont sell or purchase anything please!!!!

Hey, I am near Mesa Az. Got an address or a phone number? How about any kind of real name?

I am a new user here but have feedback and some time on rcgroups and another heli site.

I hope his wife is okay as well but if its a scam, I will be pissed. Is he a new user here you said? Does he have an account with the same name on rcgroups or any other rc site you can search?

If you do a member search for branov2, there is no such person on RR.

So if there was a branov2 on RR that you bought stuff from I would say its likely youve been screwed.

Personaly I dont understand all the wheeling and dealing that goes on over there in them classified forums, its all dodgy if you ask me, I think buying second hand electronic heli components from complete strangers on an internet forum is just too risky.

Thanks to all that have responded.
Sorry about user name missing the d thanks brcg123 for bringing that to my attention.
The username is brandov2 his real name is Brandon peerce his I checked his feedback before I did the deal it was good what there was of it. It was only a small amount of money $40. If it had been a large sum I wouldn't have did the deal because of the lack of feedback.

AzHeliCrasher thanks for the offer,I think I will give it a little more time just in case the reason for the delay is serious in nature.
I might take you up on that in another week or so if I haven't heard from him. I like to give people all the rope they need to hang themselves.
I was just trying to get a phone number. I searched the Net white pages for his name but came up with nothing.

Thanks again all I will give it a little more time before the bashing begins
This is his last PM to me

If you look over all of his postings he looks like a decent person who has been around the hobby for a long time. I would just hang tight.

How long should a person have to "hang tight" for? sickness or not it dont take but a couple of seconds to keep someone informed. I myself after seeing all the scams here and other sites dont believe the i have a family member in the hospital etc stuff. Sorry if you advertise something for sale and someone sends you the money follow though with the deal. Dont take long to follow though.

I say this all the time: WHY DOESN'T EVERYBODY DEAL COD??????????
Ship the stuff UPS or USPS and deliver as a COD with approved funds only (cashiers check, money order, etc.). Buyer gets his stuff and the seller gets his money and neither party gets ripped off. I've done it this way my whole adult life.

Well in response to cod not everyone can be home to meet the mail man.
He could have left it in the box with the flag up with money for postage though.
