Default Do not sell to sctcal44, scam artist

I sold him a Kyosho SC-R not long ago. After he recieved it, he sent me a PM. He claimed that I said it had SP2 hubs on it, but it came with stock hubs. He decided to file a Paypal claim, and wanted to send it back. It seemed odd to me, the hubs are $8.50, and sending the truck back would cost at least $25-$35 out of his pocket. I also couldn't figure why he believed they were the stock hubs. I went through it with Paypal, and tried to explain all of this. They decided it was best if he sent the truck back for a refund. I totaly disagreed, but it's Paypal, you have to play by their rules or you don't play at all. So the truck got back to me today, with $32 in postage, because of an $8 part. I opened the box, and found out why he wanted to send it back so bad. First thing I noticed, I sent the original box with it, that was missing. It had stock tires, as well as a full set of Bar Codes when I sent it to him. The Bar Codes are not in the box. Then I looked the truck over, the Velvet shocks are gone, replaced with plastic. There is chassis damage as well. In fact, as I look it over, there's a strong possibilty that it is not the same truck I sent. I contacted Paypal, and they filed an appeal on my behalf. I just know I am going to lose the appeal, Paypal never sides with sellers. I sold him the truck for $160, and now I have a truck that I would be lucky to sell for $50, if I could sell it at all. Worst part is, it's not my truck, it is a friends. Do not sell to this scum bag!!! I'm going to give Paypal a chance, but if they screw me I don't know what to do. Only good news, the original owner of this truck (two owners ago) was a police officer. Don't know what he can do, but maybe he can help out.

I don't care if he knows or not. I dare him to say something to me about it. Anyway, Paypal got back to me today, turns out they do have a heart. I got a partial refund. Honestly I still will lose a little, but if can sell whatever it is that this guy sent back, I will break even.
