Toadie, did you read any of the post before you type? They both said they tried to claim through paypal and got nothing.


Guess I didnt. I'm surprised, I received a full refund before via paypal where I never got the item.

And you probably got it all handled within a month or two of the sale. Like on Ebay, I didn't get my part, filed a claim, and got money back. I filed my claim within 30 days of the sale.

By the time these guys realized they were scammed, it was months later, and way too late to be covered by a Paypal claim.

I would contact everyone in the GP find out for sure who didn't get it. Collect a list of all their contact info and amounts paid, have them email you proof of money sent if you can, and head on down to the court. Taking from one person is not bad in the courts eyes, but when they see a few people, they get mad lol. I've literally seen the fbi get involved on 6 people losing money on a gp. They would deduct money from income and  from his financial institutions. In some states he can be charged with grand larceny and face serious fines and jail time, it's gone beyond buyer beware. I remember after lepore finally received his I contacted him about purchasing parts, he said he could have a 3 week turn around time.

the problem is, I don't think everyone that participated in the GP was listed, when I went to drop my deposit off in person to him, he said there were about 11 people interested. But there were not that many that posted up they were interested at that time

Finding them all might be an issue

Well, I'm one of those people....I haven't been on here for a while 'cause I moved and finally gettin' settled in. I gave Josh a deposit for a rear extended spoiler over a year ago, and he hasn't tried to contact me once to let me know what he's up to. Everytime I contacted him, I got the "just a little longer" excuse. I'd like to know what's up as well....

I think we have a fair start:

CSDISME
BOHO
ZACTEK
SILVERARROW89 (not sure if he ever got his part)

There is a substantial amount of money in deposits here just from the 4 members listed. I have $450 in, and Boho has over $1000 if I remember right. Personally I think the next step is pretty clear. This is simply too much to walk away from.

You would think Bernie Madeoff should have been arrested earlier too.

I read somewhere (?) he has paypal waiting for money to be deposited in his account so they can redistribute it,
to it's rightful owners,

Paypal's has to think of themselves and they don't want to kill the(cash)cow.

I say screw paypal..

lets eat steak!

That's great to hear.:D  He should seriously take a minute and send a text, make a call, drop a note, or whatever to every person he owes parts to and give them a heads up on what is happening and an estimated date they can expect their parts or offer them a refund.

i wouldn't let up until the parts were in my hands. promises promises.

i bet a judgement against him and subsequent garnishment of his bank account would be a good motivating factor.

You guys aware that if this is all true this guy could be facing wirefraud charges because of the fact that the interstate commerce over the internet could be considered fraudulent if he doesn't deliver the parts or refund your money.  The forum posts can actually be used as evidence.  You need to contact the state attorney in Mn and file charges against him as a group.  One of you individuals need to contact that office with the total amount of money and the list of individuals owed, and all correspondence between you guys.

Good luck, dont let him get away with it.

Man I'm sorry to hear about all this and I really hope everyone either gets their parts or their money back. Just a little tip on Paypal, a few months ago I talked to paypal about refunding money and they told me that unless you buy the item off e-bay and go through the e-bay checkout process you ARE NOT covered by their buyer protection policy. This simple means that if you send anyone money, buy off a business, a website sale or your mother in law in Budapest its a transaction outside of e-bay, you are on your own and they will not process the claim for you. Maybe I understood it incorrectly and you can call Paypal to verify but from what I remember if you are not buying and paying through the e-bay syatem you might as well be sending cash in an envelope.

i believe this is 100% correct. although, i think they are willing to help out but will not refund you any money unless the person has funds in their paypal account.

i honestly cant believe this matter hasn't been brought to the authorities...
