Default trade gone bad, need help

I need help in the Union Gap, Washington state area.I did a trade with a guy named Rick howard, he went by the name dethlok on here. I sent him a brand new Kyosho str for a used losi 8 and OS vspek, that I never recieved. If anyone knows him or will see him out racing my str somewhere, I will pay a reward for the return of my truck.

After I did not recieve the losi like I was promised, we spoke on the phone a few times, everything seemed good, like I would recieve my stuff, and then he disconnected his phone, and wont return my emails.

I dont want anyone to get in trouble, but if they can return my str, Ill gladly pay a reward, thanks.

Don't worry about getting anyone in trouble. People bring trouble upon themselves by doing stupid things like this. Call his hometown police.

Where are you located ? I am in Ellensburg, Wa. That's approx 30 north of Union Gap. If you email me, I can provide you with the 2 LHS numbers and the local track. They should know of this guy. The area isn't that big.

Thanx ... I'll wait for an email to see if we can get this figured out. Personally, these trade deals scare the hell outta me.

Good luck T Lawrence. I guess there are thiefs everywhere. Even in the great hobby of RC. It will definatly pay off to call the police in his town. Hopefully the address you sent it to was his. It's funny he's dumb enough to think no one may try to track him down te the address. This GEEK will get what's comin to him
