Thumbs down WARNING!!!!!! Stay away from PlatinumPhou

i sent him a money order for a speed control probably about 4 weeks ago or more... and have yet to get it and i e-mailed him about it he told me it got sent back to him and i went and talked to my post office about it and they never got anything for me and now he refuses to reply to my e-mails for over a week now...
SO STAY AWAY FROM PHOU HE WILL RIP U OFF

Thanks,
D.C.

The good news is you sent him a Money Order. If you sent the mail order via regular mail or priority mail you can actually go to the Post Office and file a mail fraud claim. The post office takes these things VERY seriously and will go after him on your behalf.

Phou will make it Right for you. If you sent him the Money Order he will send Your Speed Controller. There was a Change of Ownership at the Hobby Store this Month and He has had a lot going on.

Well D.C. you probably should have stopped by your Local Hobby shop 1st, But I know Phou, and he'll take care of it, maybe he'll let you use his computer to check your e-mail too!!

Phou has had a lot on his plate of late, I've bought a bunch of stuff off him and had no problem, maybe try calling him at the store

Default excuses, excuses

Everyone that doesn't hold up their end of a deal always has "alot on their plate" or "i'm kinda short on money right now" or "I had to work late last night" or something else. If you are too busy to do business, then don't deceive people by trying.

just for the ppl that did stick up for him... saying he will make it right to me.. yeah well apparently you don't know him as good as you thought... he has talked to my hobbyshop guy and told him he had been trying to get w/ me and all this crap and he doesn't even reply to my 12 e-mails but he has talked to the hobbyshop guy and told him he would send it to his hobbyshop and still hasn't done that... so apparently he's not a good of a dude as you thought he was..

Thanks

Should have purchased from your local hobbyshop. I bought from Phou and got my stuff pretty quick. Its only a 2 hour drive smitty. Go up and pay him a visit. Just go race at Platnium rather that Fairmont next weekend.

Lot of headache to save a buck. Sucks!!

Phou!! Get this taken care of. You know you have his money. Send him the Damn ESC.
