Well I read the whole thread and didn't see the scammer I just dealt with recently so this one should be added as well.

eBay name: squeezinteg
Item: Spoon Sports reservoir covers (alleged to be authentic)

I should have known better by just looking at the $7.83 price. I asked the seller if it was legit and of course he said yes. It didn't arrive in actual Spoon Sports packaging like he said it was. I compared it against, after it arrived, a photo of the same item at ICBMotorsport and the font was totally different. The patch that is sewed on was completely different. His response about the packaging was that Spoon has changed their packaging. I demanded a refund and shipped the item back. I got my money back and left negative feedback. His response to leaving negative feedback is below.

Dear b18c-inside,

Was that negative really necessary? I responded to all of your request
professionally and promptly. You are nobody to say that my products are
"fake". We are an authorized Spoon dealer so you can take your weak ass car
thats probably 99.9% filled with fake China parts and get spanked by a SOHC
non vtec. Grow up and don't be a nuisance to society.

-squeezinteg

Yeah he's real professional...lol!

Seller: Vinvestors

I paid him 75 for 3 interior panels and 100 for a sideskirt, with 30 shipping, and then another 25 in shipping when he asked for it.

All interior panels either had broken tabs or surfaces scuffed enough where they are unusable in a car. He mentioned he would send me the best panels he had, but junk parts are junk parts. I didn't ask for panels with broken tabs that look terrible.

The sideskirt he claimed "had a few grease marks that will wipe off, otherwise good paint condition", but when I received it had one of 3 lower mounting tabs snapped, and the paint was awful. A lot of paint missing in very visible locations, as well as scrapes and chips everywhere. Also completely unusable. When asked for a refund he finally agreed, but has yet to send a refund. It has been weeks since then, and even after some 6 reminders to refund me for the sideskirt, he continually says he reminded his partner to pay me, refund is coming etc etc yet no payment received.

This guy is a scammer with junk parts. Do not buy from him, and definitely don't be as stupid as I was to trust someone enough to gift them payment. You will most definitely not be happy with parts you receive, and will certainly want your money back, so ALWAYS use payment for goods or services. The sad thing is I could have gotten a decent condition side skirt on ebay for the price I paid to this scammer.

Edit 3/13/2014: Finally refunded 100 bucks after I sent a paypal request. What a hassle this has been...

So in about October I bought Ksport Kontrol Pros from Bebe101. I drove up shortly after and met up with him brought the coilovers home. A couple weeks later I decided to put them on my car and found it extremely difficult. 3 of the four had been seized and required a torch to get undone, all done by a mechanic. The top hats weren't lining up with the holes and after some modification got them on my car. Or so I thought. After driving I noticed the front shocks must've blown because the car was bouncing and shaking. I took them off the car and back to a local mechanic who said I would need 4 brand new shocks. Not what I wanted to hear. Sent him many texts and got little to no responses.

texts about availability and condition



knew they were going to be used but didn't expect to be this bad


got ahold of him and tried working it out.





once again nothing stating that shocks or threads were seized.

he agreed to do a refund less than whatI paid for the coilovers and he gave me a time period because he was busy, which I can understand. I also said I would ship him back the parts.



So after all this its been about 3 weeks with no responses back.

Anyone who pays through PayPal and got a bad deal, just send a request for a refund through PayPal and once you get it send the parts back to the seller.

I know getting scammed or a bad deal or whatever really sucks but I have dealt with it to. Never send the money as a gift using PayPal or you will have no buyer protection. And if you’re a honest buyer and feel like you have been done wrong than get your money back and send the parts back.

And think of it as a lesson learned and move on. You will be out of shipping money but it’s better than losing all your money and having parts you can or don’t want on your car.

And of course add your post in here to help with other people thinking of buying from someone on this list.

Remember to always give people Reputation points with "COMMENTS" or it does not count for good information and threads
