Default Do not buy from clinttredway

Gents,

Just a warning not to buy from a bloke called "clinttredway". Bought a TC7 off him in May. In addition to the rolling chassis, savox servo and various parts/springs, it was supposed to come with two shells and a spare carbon fibre chassis. After it arrived at my house a few weeks later (I live in Australia), the carbon fibre chassis and two shells were missing. I promptly followed this up only for him to tell me that one of the shells was unusable but he would send the chassis and second shell via mail with tracking number shortly. Several follow up messages throughout last month and still nothing. He was giving me excuses about his personal situation and after another two follow up messages in the past two weeks he still hasn't replied. DO NOT DEAL WITH HIM. I am going to try and get a partial refund from Paypal.

Mick

What day did you send him PP? The reason I ask, is he edited the add on "Last edited by clinttredway; 05-11-2016 at 03:19 PM." And I wonder if he removed the mention of the extra chassis after he sold it to you.

Hi Gents,

He didn't modify the ad after he sold it, everything advertised is what I thought I was buying. I purchased the TC7 in late May. The car was supposed to come with both the aluminum chassis and kit standard carbon fibre chassis. It only arrived with the aluminum chassis. The carbon fibre chassis is the one I'm waiting on, plus the new shell.

Mike

Cool thanks, I was just curious. Certainly go for a partial with a PP claim. Good luck and let us know what PP says.

It's hard to chime in if you don't know this thread is here, right?

Hard to say anything when you've been dishonest & not sent everything you had advertised. This has already happened, any chime will only be full of excuses. I've just had a new member offer me something at a rediculously low price & I've noticed they're doing the same with a new iPhone they claim to have. Yet they've only posted it on someone else's thread & not made one themself for it. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is - shame as I'd really like what's being offered.

Just an update gents, not long after I made that first post he sent me a photo claiming it was the receipt from the missing parts he sent. I'll believe it when it arrives at my door. And he's fully aware I made a thread on this forum because I told him, as well as a negative trader rating. I've got nothing to hide, just want people to be accountable for what they sell. Appreciate all the support so far.

Let's hope you get your stuff as promised on original thread. Now did he offer a reason for it being left out ? Just curious as to why it was not included in package. Good luck

Not really. He apologised and said he would send it and send me the tracking number. After hearing nothing I followed up and he gave a personal reason then I heard nothing again and sent more follow up messages until I finally took him to task.

Last update gents,

The shells and chassis finally showed up this week, which was surprising. He was supposed to send a new clear body but instead sent two used ones and the chassis, but I'm just happy to get what he originally promised. Regardless, this whole experience was incredibly frustrating and the way I was treated was disgusting. There's a myriad of lessons I learnt from this and I appreciate everyone's support on this thread. Always trade openly and honestly.

Mick
