Default mpb47553 SCAMMER...

i purchased and paid for a GTB/3.5 combo from mpb47553 almost 2 weeks ago and he has given me nothing but a bunch of stories since....finally after his stories he sends me a tracking number for USPS...

i have been in contact with other membershere who apparently purchased the same or other items he had listed and they have been scammed as well...nothing but lies and stories....then to top it all off he sends at least 2 of us THE SAME TRACKING NUMBER....now he doesnt answer messages....

the tracking number says that info has been sent in but no packages shipped yet....

i am sure the others will post here as well....

so basically i guess i am out a good amount of money here....some people just plain suck....

i knew i shouldnt have trusted this dude after seeing him post on another thread that he needed to take a loan out to pay his measly $1700.00 yr tax bll on his house....whiner...my phone bill is more than that a year....what a loser...:flami ng:

Default mpb47553 SCAMMER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i'm with ghost28....i also purchased the gtb3.5 combo and recieved the story after story. i got the tracking # that matches up with ghost28. either he mistakingly sent me or ghost28 the wrong #. This guy seems to be a scammer. it's the first time i've had a negitive transaction on this site, but there's a thief in every crowd. i've sent him countless pm's and emails and he answers at his convience. i know of one more person who purchased the same combo so hopefully he posts he also. we do not need these people on here. mpb47553 make this right

i have made about 20 successful and easy transactions through this site buying, selling and trading.....as a matter of fact since the date of this purchase with mpb47553 i have made deals with, paid for, and received all of the below merchandise....

LRP Pulsar 3
LRP 14A Power supply
2-AMB Transponders
Novak 13.5SS
Losi Lipo Charger

all of the above deals were made late last week and i have received everything in the mail already...still no sign of the speed control from mpb47553....

I hope he make this right....especially considering i got a story from him about a hobby shop that a family member owned closing down and there being ALOT more to sell....

Yeah, I got taken too, but you better understand that shoutin' and yellin' ain't gonna get it done--we've pretty much proven he's impervious to such "treatment". He's not going to do dick about us squawking here so it's time to move on to other actions.

Things like:

Have you filed a PayPal complaint? CONTACT ME BEFORE 'upgrading' to "claim"

Have you clicked the link under "report this listing" under the current e-Bay sale? (I have) Do this NOW while e-Bay can still do something about the listing and save somebody else from getting screwed.

Have you started to seek out info on the local (Loogootee, IN) police? And/or the FBI's online fraud division? I'm pretty tied up the next 3 days but you'd better bet I'll be on this like stink on poo come next week. One guy claiming he's been screwed doesn't merit much notice, but THREE guys (or more?) with a well orchestrated complaint will get them to look into it. He's established a pattern.

lmk what you propose. I'm all in for making this sorry SOB's life a living hell.

Make the claim NOW, you are giving him time to pull the money out or to send NOTHING.

I got my PayPal refund today. What a useless piece of crap--not that any of this matters as he's not signed on to RC Tech since Mar 5 (the day after he told me he was 2nd Day shipping my esc/motor to me).

I don't think he's a "scammer" as it seems everybody has been refunded, but what kind of moron completely destroys his reputation by selling stuff, never shipping it and then refunding three weeks later? Plus he wouldn't respond to pm's, wouldn't respond to an initial complaint with PayPal...he waited until I upgraded the complaint to a claim before he did anything about it.

At least I got my money back. This guy is as useless as a diet crouton. Thankfully it seems he has gone elsewhere to be a pain in the a$$.
