Default Dont go to RCJUNKYARD for nothing ill explain why!

Hi everyone i WAS a member of rcjunkyard till i was banned. heres the story..... I had worked a deal with another member for a trade about 200 bucks worth of stuff for his mini hpi carsss 2 of them well we worked the deal and were gonna mail on the same day well i did my part and mailed my stuff on the date we agreed on and got the tracking number like agreed upon well 3 days later i get an email asking if i mailed yet i said yes and i gave you tracking number well he hadnt shipped yet. the next day i ask. his answer cant yet real busy next day no answer next day well i cant find box yet next im getting what did you send again come on man you know what i sent quit playing in the mean time im checking usps the box has arrived. i ask him you gonna send or what oh i did man just wait. you got a tracking number? no just wait it will get there. now let me tell you i have called this guy and he explained how sweet these cars are how they are ready to go minus tx and rx and they had hopped up orion motors and escs and so on you all know whats out there. well this saturday i get a little box and im thinking in my head how small is 1/18 scale. i open the box there is 1 car in peices an unnammed motor and no esc no motor no nothing and the frame is tweaked beyond repair. so heres how i get booted from rc junkyard which i think is a load of crap and if any of you are members the mod that booted me is richard please complain for me. i had posted a scammer alert for this member and i had astricked my cussing like this is f*&^ you know not really spelling it out and the mod gets on there and heres his post

so i mail him back and say thanks for the threat but someone just stole 200 dollars from me and dont you think you might cuss a little too if you were in my shoes. I had said that your threats dont do any good what are you gonna do for me one of your members stole from me your gonna ban me i said if thats what gets your stuff hard go ahead im not in the best mood to be threating me.

so his reply after not telling me to cuss is and i quote "Hey buddy you want to be a smart *** ...fine...

have a good life."

so how is this helping me? is this the way you run a site? is this the a mod is supposed to help someone? i think its plain wrong and childish!

Sorry to hear that you were scammed. Did you by chance ask for pictures of the items that you were going to get? I never buy anything from someone on one of these sites unless I have pics of what to expect beforehand. As I'm sure that you know, this site has had it's share of scammers working it as well. Unfortunately, there are no safeguards in this kind of trade like there is buying from eBay for example.

Sounds pretty odd that an administrator would ban you without warning. I've never been on that site, but unless you ignored the warnings from the admins I can't see why you would be banned. Although, mailing him back and saying "Thanks for the threat" IS a bit provocative. You might have pissed him off enough to ban you just for that.
