Default Do not trust transactions by Smashmouth

On 4/3 I PM'ed smashmouth about an item he was selling. Here is a link to the thread-
http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...1-8th-off.html

Within minutes he accepted my offer and accepted my Paypal payment. Then as you can see from the thread, he accepted payment from two other people, one that is listed on the thread and another who PM'ed me telling me he had paid for the item . I had to PM smash mouth a couple of times to see if he had sent the item and to make sure that he did not sell it to the others. After slowly responding, he indicated that the item was indeed shipped out. All the while I had been PM'ing with one of the other buyers who was telling me that smash mouth had told him that I was "bugging" and the item was still available. This was after smash mouth confirmed with me that the item had shipped.
At this time-4/13 I have not received the item nor has smash mouth replied to my PM or email in several days.
This seller is a scammer and not to be trusted.

posting his user name with zero feedback doesn't really help. he just did a hit and run. post his real name, address, and paypal acct (email). if that's allowable? obviously this POS is a scammer. no protection for them.

Sounds like he needed a little more money than what the parts were worth. sell it to multiple people get their money and run.

Sent him the money and never got anything. I sent him a few PM and no response. This guy is a scammer and needs to be kicked off of rctech.

I'm not sure if posting his paypal account and other info is allowable. If it is,I will be happy to do so.
Who do I ask about this?

I also Paid for the Balancer . I did not know at the time he had said he shipped out for MKL days before . Glad I posted that I paid for on the link to the tire balancer . I just felt something shady was going on so I wanted to put out there that I sent this guy money . The Pay pal account is Under a Girls name Britany Something . I looked up the name And No info except some Model in California and I don't think she needs a few bucks . He told me he was sorry for this and his wife has cancer BS sorry I'm sure . The last I herd from was I will send u a refund That was days ago and no reply to nothing now . He is Defiantly a scammer in my book !

The elite member status doesn't tell you anything about a person. Some one could start an account buy the elite membership and could start selling right away. They could take peoples money right away and run.

and of course Smashmouth

The POS is like herpes, you think he's gone and BAM there he is again irritating you.

If anyone wants to read up on his past bad deals. Search the feedback forum for those names. The names won't show up in a 'member search' because they're all banned.
