Default Don't want BEWARE of this guy

rctrader rc_trader

Russell Lagesse
Madison Heights,MI

We traded trucks I got no tracking#. after asking countless times in emails,pm's and phone calls for it. I told him that I was going to fill out a parcel return to have my truck returned to me. WOW!!! I GOT A CALL. I got a sob story I think don't know for sure. Gut feeling said to do the recall but I didn't. Over 2 wks. and I still have no truck and my shows delivered. He says he doesn't have it and that the truck he sent me is in TX. How does it get in TX with my address on it? 25-30 emails, don't know how many pm's and about 8 phone calls.
I hate posting this but the honest people should be aware. I'm not saying he is dishonest but there are just to many variables and loop holes. Limited to no response at times and not being a man about his word(tracking #that I didn't get). This is the second time I got burned on rcuniverse.

Trust your gut and do a Parcel Return or Recall if you have any doubt about who your dealing with.

This is why I use FedEx (w/ an account) when trading. Literally a 3 minute phone call and the package can be back on the way to me. I don't have to deal with Post Office hassle.

bummer deal! do they have trader ratings over on the other forum?

I usually give a link to my eBay sellers account to give confidence as well.

what goes around comes around on both ends.

A scammer with the name Russell deserves the most severe punishment available
