Good luck on the recovery/prosecution.

Since the product retails for over $500, its a Felony Theft in most States. And based on his description of the product "Got it from an ex-girlfriend", Detectives have a witness to interview as to how he acquired it.

Hopefully if someone else Offered or Buy It Now it is with intentions of helping nab the perp. If they send money intending to buy from this guy. He can easily not send the item and rip them off too! Something for you guys wanting a deal to think about. Good luck with getting justice.

If you click on his name in eBay is that a picture of him on the left side of the screen?

Hopefully the law won't work slowly on this one..

Oh yeah, and another detail about the kit, when sombody buys something at a hobby shop, especially a 500 dollar kit, it tends to stir up conversation between hobbyshop employees and the buyer, wheather it be in the isle, or at the cash register, this attracts attention, and obviously a 500 dollar kit isn't something to go in and get out of a hobby shop for. If nobody talked to the buyer about a newer '09, well, he probably swipped it. Also, hobbyshops do keep track of their merchendise, if something was recorded to be there, is not there anymore, and has no record of it being paid for, it was stolen.

Froboy, if that was you who purchased it, let's hope that you can get to the theif and open up a can of-



If you weren't, well,
All the best of luck to you.
yes it was purchased by a "cotsio143" for $400. you should contact ebay and see if they can help

Since the XRay cars are serialized, the either Xray or their distributor may have records of the car being sent out to the HobbyPLEX, so the hobby shop would not necessarily have to write numbers down to prove ownership.

As a patron of the HobbyPLEX, I sure hope the cops get this thief. It is a pretty amazing hobby shop and racing facility with a very knowledgeable staff. Sucks that stuff like this happens to them.

Shouldn't you contact this seller and inform him he is about to become a felon for recieving stolen merchandise? That should back him off from paying and now the guy is stuck with it and you have his info from ebay a visit from the local police should wrap things up quickly.
