Questions?? scammer

I traded someone named Curt Peters([email protected])(rcjunky_02) My new Traxxas Jato3.3 with a carbon fiber kit to replace some of the plastic looks really nice for a HPI BAJA 5b, good deal you would think so but no, He has the JATO and I have nothing he didnt send me the BAJA its been two weeks since I've heard from him and I figure he was a nice guy to deal with but no, If anyone knowa him all I want it the BAJA or my JATO back its not too much to ask for, I figure I would post this cause there's so many honest people out there that gets shafted in the end from a bad deal, He lives in Kamloops, British Columbia. I have talked to a few people and told me there's more people that scam then are honest, and thats what this guy is, I wouldn't be ding this if the deal went good. The sad part is he's making the website and B.C. look bad I dont know if I would ever trust someone to buy or sell anything again on the R/C websites, All I want if someone knows him is to send me the BAJA 5b as he promissed or send back the JATO 3.3 thats all but I guess thats too much to ask for, it sound like he wants everything and dosent want to pay for anything.

Default scam

the address he gave me is for the shipping depo all I know is his name and email address is Curt Peters ([email protected]) if that his name all I know is that he lives in Kamloops B.C. I have sent him emails at lease 6x's a day. People that scam others is not right, I am hoping someone knows him and tells him to send either the Jato back or the Baja I wont get mad just want what belongs to me, I don't know his age or what he looks like I just want to get either back, I should have thought about it but I got to happy when he told me that jato and $250.00. People said that the jato's worth $300.US, but in Canada its $500.-$600. and then the carbon fiber kit was another $200.CND it all adds up when you put all the numbers together. It sucks also knowing that someone you thought you could trust could do something like this. All I can do is hope someone knows this person and lets him know and others that read this hopefully don't go threw this. who knows where it is, I have been looking at Kijiji, cragslist and ebay to see if it shows up, every person dose something different to there R/C to make it there's and I made it different with the carbon fiber kit to give it a little edge, thanks for any help that comes along hopefully he sends it back scamms have to stop, people have to start trusting people, everyone works for a living and buy things to make them happy. Thanks to everyone that helps.

I did threw the police in Oakville where I live in Canada and threw the RCMP hopefully the guy send me either the Jato or the Baja, if they catch him I'll press charges, this guy can either come clean and return the Jato or send me the Baja and I'll cancel the report well see what happends. there's been too many scamms in the world over this and others if one person can be caught and it goes on the news it may help more people realize that its a criminal offence and the police dosen't put up with it. I was reading about what happends in the U.S.A and the FBI come to the person's house and take everything they have plus a heavy fine and jail time when there caught, something they should do everywhere.
