OK, I sold my stall/converter 10/17. I get a text tonight from the guy, says the stall is cracked at the snout. It was not when I had it. I told him it was insured through Fedex for more then he paid, so to go to Fedex, they will want to inspect everything, including the box. Then he says that the box is not damaged, and the crack is small, and I may have missed it. Then asks for me to send him the money, and they will send me the converter back. As many scams like this I have seen, I am very wary. I actually don't even have the oney to send him right now, this is my slow season.
I was tempted to close the PP account, to keep him from getting the money back. However, that will make me look guilty of something. What shoudl I do? Is he likely going to win and get his money back through paypal? The thing was in great condition when I had it, and I inspected the whole thing on arrival. I'm not trying to scam, I just don't want to be scammed.
I don't know, I guess he just decided to get it installed. Fedex is going to tell him no, because of how long it has been. And I just got a $130 ticket today, first one in 5 years. I got some bad Karma or something going on. Maybe I'll just sell the heads and intake and let the car sit, pay this f*cker, pay the ticket, have Christmas, and figure out the car next year.
Something sounds fishy indeed... Why did he wait sooooo long to inspect it??? Why doesn't he want to file a claim with FedEx??? Because the shipping box didn't have any damages? I would contact FedEx myself and file a claim anyways... have FedEx rep pick up the box w/shipping material and TQ Converter, he prob dropped it and is trying to lay the blame on you or FedEx... oh yeah, something ain't right here...
He said the crack is small and they only noticed it trying to install it. Said the box is not damaged. I think something is wrong here as well. The member I bought it from is a respected member, like a Deerslayer or 08crewcab, over on the GTO forums. I have contacted him, but I trust the seller. And I know I inspected the snout. I would have seen it. I always inspect my stuff as soon as I see it.
