It's a simple "reverse-shipment" scam. My dad (who worked for the USPS) told me about it. I asked becuase one of my friends were frauded over CL, and shipped an iPod to Nigeria, only to get a bunch of BS addresses to send more money (they "overpayed through paypal") via Western Union Money Order, till I got an address in New York.... Anyway.

Basically, you have abunch of crap "sent" to a legitimate address, but its usually set up as a "change of address" so when the USPS recieves it, and processes it, they look it up, and it should say the person, or address, is no longer valid to that address. So in the computer it is written up as a Redirect, and thus shipped to whatever "new" address the "previous adressee" now resides. Pretty clever way of doing it, and very hard to pinpoint, as it could go to another "redirected" address.

Or, there could be someone at that residence, who basically picks up the packages/money and "drop-ships/forwards" the packages/moneys.

And judging by the length of time these issues have been going on, I'm willing to bet the former.


Cindy, you say you SENT him packages (the shocks) and never recieved anything back? Have his address?

Anyone send him (from here or T-M) a MO/Check, etc?

Post up addresses, I'm sure the Postmaster general would love to investigate. Mail Fraud is a BIG DEAL in the U.S. The P-M G will get a lot more involved than an attourney, its free, and they tend to really like handing out punishments.

She can't publicly post his address. It is unprofessional and against the rules of the forum.. If you all want to discuss his where abouts then I suggest you do it over PM.

The rule is set in place because if she gave you his address and say you decided to go and beat him up or kill him, well in that case we are all accessories and that would bring problems to the forum.

Understandable. I can file a suit as soon as I find out what county he is in. Not to mention if he is in the country on a work visa and/or applying for a green card, it can seriously affect his status.

You can go beat him up, but that is only temporary, getting him into the legal system or deported is permanent.

I do not wish any physical harm to the man, I just want what we all want. Our parts or our money back.

I have had this happen to me before with a set of wheels I bought in South Carolina. The guy gave me the run around, so eventually some of my friends and I took a trip to S.C. and I got my wheels.

I wasn't saying you wanted to harm him but in the event you get into a scuffle with him and Hirt him the whoever gave you the address is half responsible along with the staff that let it happen so we have to step in for the best interest of our forum.

I understand. Power of the pen is far greater than the power of the sword. I was merely stating that I have had this happen before. I can not make any ground legally without some idea of his geographically location.

Nothing yet. I did find out that he was in Lee County Florida. He also goes back and forth to Mexico for half of the year. I did send him an email to [email protected] and to [email protected] telling him that I was going to file a suit against him in Lee County. I also told him that because the total dollar amount of the parts is over a thousand dollars it would be considered grand theft, which, is a Felony. No word yet, but we shall see. I will be waiting to hear back from the circuit court of Lee County.
Anyone else hear anything? I would say the jerk split town. He probably has a 6 month work visa. I will see what I can do about getting that revoked.

Thanks Woody. I will see what all we can file against this guy. Possibly not allow his visa to get renewed. I will try and post a picture of him. If you go to his profile and search threads that he has started there is one about having no traction. On that thread is a video of him burning his tires. You can clearly see his face.

well,no activity on his end since 4-18-11 so obviously we aint getting any parts, those that held off on paypal claims should now file them, those that did already should be getting close to getting their money back and those that paid via gift( like me) are screwed. i say eff him and his whole family,if my convict kid brother wasnt already doin a stint in the pen, i'd send him down there to collect, he'd find him and take our money outta his ass.

All associated parties need to send me a PM with the title "IRVIN" with the dollar ammount they sent, name (if you choose, S/N's will work), method of payment, and any pertinent information regarding him, including addresses, e-mails, etc.

Time I come back out of "hiding"
