Thumbs down Warning - Bad Deal with True R/C Racing

Over a month ago I purchased the Warpspeed that he was selling: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...ight=Warpspeed

I received the car (missing a few parts, but small enough not to matter), but the promised bodies and motor cooler were not included in the package.

He apparently forgot to pack the bodies, and claimed he shipped the cooler to another person by mistake. During this time, I was always able to contact him and he stated he was getting the cooler back from the person he shipped it to and would send it along with the bodies to me this past Monday (6/7). Well, itís a week later, and I still have no tracking #'s, or parts.

Currently, he is not responding to IM, Email, or PM (I have seen him logged in here). Be warned if you are planning on dealing with this Kid. My patience has run out with him.

Regards,
Jimmy

Default Laws

State law does allow you to go after the parents as long as he lives under their roof. He is their responsibility until he moves out or attains his 18th birthday, which in this case he may not?

Guys, do not worry. I have talked to Ariel on the phone, and you will have your stuff ASAP. He sent the package out last week. The reason he hasn't contacted you or returned your e-mails is because, like I said in the PM I sent you, he has been having trouble getting online. He hasn't even been on RCTech in over almost 2 weeks. There are many other people that can give him great feedback from past experiences. There were just a few mistakes here. Once again, he appologizes for this, but in the mean time, just have some patience. I know him and he will never rip anyone off.

And saying that just because he is a kid that you should never deal with him shows ignorance on your side speedxl. Most kids are more responsible traders on these forums anyways.

UPDATE:

Thanks to everyone from the Florida section as well as Kevin for the information and help.

I just returned from a weekend trip today and the items indeed had arrived.

Regards,
Jimmy
