Default Banditvxl22 warning

I purchased 2 chassis from the rctech member called Banditvxl22 I paid on the 2nd and it's now almost 2 weeks since I paid and still hasn't shipped. He has 2 PayPal accounts the first one is [email protected] he said that his wife account and then he has this account [email protected] which if you google it is a landscaping business located in 4105 Ferndale Dr Port Arthur, TX 77642-2547 with phone number (409) 460-4891 but he used this phone number for my deal 5129436672
I just open a Paypal case against him so hopefully, I can get back some of the 235 dollars I sent to him
Here is another member that got screw by him.

Did you open a PayPal case against him? that will probably be the only way of seeing some of that money back.
Another member on here Google the number and got this link

To be honest i messed , with the format change on here i gotta log on from a PC to see peoples feedback. I dont log on much or buy or sell anything anymore but this was a specific thing I needed. My feedback speaks for itself. After hagling on price (on his cell ) he asked that pay as friend. I did not have time to get to my PC so I went for it. DISCLAIMER -- I am not blaming rctech, just saying why i couldn't check this guy out. Its my fault and I deserve it. thank god it was only 55 but the truth is tech has more of these parasites than ever before and for some reason the old school members are almost gone, WHY???

He tried that pay as a friend thing with me his reasoning being the PayPal fee, I told him I would take care of the fee but I am paying as a product/service I never had to open a claim with PayPal directly so hopefully I am able to get some of my money, 235 is kinda a bitch to lose completely. I have to wait until October 5 for his responds according to PayPal

He tried to get me. Sent me pictures via email asking for paypal personal. Then asked to add 3% because I would pay personal. Said he lived in Wisconsin but gave me a Texas phone number. Red flags everywhere. Plus he has no history of posting anywhere.

The only reason I sent him money was because I did a google search of the photos he sent and didn't get any results so I figure they were legit, I was on the mobile version of this site when I sent payment so I didn't notice his feedback count until I already had sent payment.

Well Hopefully the Mods chime in. Given he has been on 2 days ago, I figure perhaps he is being shady. Red Flag #1 = new member and a non poster!!!!

I mainly just started the thread to hopefully prevent anyone from sending him any money or falling for his scam and to post new ways to contact them.

He sent me a PM about a wanted ad I had placed for Sanwa receivers. I asked him what model they were and for pics. He asked me to text him for that information and gave me a number(sorry I deleted the message so I can not supply the number). I then told him to get bent. If he can not supply me with a model number and he had no feedback and no real posts scammer.
