That really sucks guy. I havent been scammed yet, but I think if I was I would take a little road trip. The cost of the roadtrip would probably outweigh the cost of the RC stuff, but its the point. Has anyone done this and confronted a person that scammed them? Just curious...

I agree, I'd be doing something about it. It's time he learns a lesson and grows up.

A confrontation like that just happened opening day at my local track.A friend of mine got ripped off nearly 3 years ago after buying a Revo on the Traxxas forum.Turns out,the scammer shows up at our track a few weeks ago.He lives in the next state over from us and my friend happened to remember the guy's name over the past few years.Before the day was done,there was a confrontation on the matter.The guy admitted to scamming and gave a sob story.But when it was all said and done,my buddy left that night with all the money he was owed plus about 3 years worth of interest.

Well the mistake you made is pretty obvious,seeing as he has 0 feedback and you have 4+ you would have had seniority over the deal so he should have shipped to you first.
