Default Scammer!

Just warning everyone that DTM_Motorsports is a scammer. I bought tires off him about a month ago and still havent received them. I emailed him about it and he answered about 2 weeks ago and said he was out of state and he will ship them tomorrow. after that I havent heard from him. I only payed 50 bucks but still, I am 15 so that 50 goes a long way. I filed a claim with paypal. I see that mark04 is his friend on his profile, do you know him personally? If you do would you be willing to see whats up?

Sorry bout your bad luck, but that is why I only buy from hobby shops and retail stores(AMAIN etc). Yes ebay has been good with some but there is always that chance. I have not heard of the company ur talking about so I would check into more options before purchasing anything rc related from other than the dealers.

you should be able to get your money back with paypal, I have done it for a ebay purchase. I would give him a week to respond to the dispute.

yea, paypal sucks imo. i got scammed in December by "KAMBO13" and he did a partial refund after all the people he scammed got together and were contacting the police and he refunded mostly everyone and gave me partial refund and paypal said that was good enough even tho i never received the product

I've used a CC with PayPal for not-so-sure purchases. If PayPal doesn't resolve it, file the claim with the CC company.

I'm sorry, but I don't actually know him. The "friends" thing here is kinda like Myspace... maybe not as silly though. If I remember correctly, we're "friends" because we live in the same general area and figured we might cross paths at the local track.

Basically, you know him better than I do.

Mark, do you know who he is? (real name?) I'm just wondering if it is anyone we know from the track.

I don't know his name and we've never even exchanged PMs. I think there's a "visitor message" in my profile somewhere that says "Howdy neighbor", but that's all.

Okay, so you're gonna be surprised by this... what a coincidence. I sometimes search our (Dallas) Craigslist for R/C stuff. I ran across a listing for a Mugen MBX5 Prospec with an RB WS7 in Richardson.

Now then, DTM_Motorsports' signature states that he has a Mugen MBX5 Prospec with an RB WS7, and he lives in Richardson. If you look at his avatar:


and compare it to the pic in the Craigslist ad:


There's your man...
http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/bar/1107086479.html

@ rgrassey: Don't tell him that I sent you. It's strictly a coincidence that I saw the ad and put 2 + 2 together. I wasn't searching for him in any manner.

Thats sorry man. I don't understand a f'in thief. I'll see if I can get him to come to JCG if you want and I'll see if I can get your tires.
