    Default buyers beware

    Just saw this over on jeepforum -
    Apparently this guy has been scamming people - his name is "my1stnicejeep" but i'm sure he's changed it by now. He's out of PA and is selling items, taking the money and never shipping product.
    Here is a link to one of the threads -
    http://jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=614361

    Apparently he's been scamming people on Jeepspace as well as pirate4x4.com

    So be careful!

    There are asshats everywhere. My suggestion would be to talk with some others that have dealt with someone prior to buying from them, or maybe if here on MJ, check with someone that has been here a while to see how that person is prior to making a purchase or sale. Paypal is cool, they say they protect buyers and sellers, but i got screwed one time when I paid money and did not get product and even though I reported it to paypal, I never got crap.

    Scammers are everwhere you just got to make sure to research with whom you deal with

    In further reading of the thread provided by Crazyhorse6 here is the jerks mailing address based on a purchase someone made on that thread.
    Buyer beware is right.

    Yeah.. bad thing is, the guy actually posted up in a few tech threads. A few folks have talked to him on the phone and said he seems like a nice guy.

    Whatever the case, all his "For Sale" threads have been deleted from Jeepforum and he was "permabanned".

    Defiently be carefull there. ALot of people use "stock" photos, and in the description in tiny print it tells you what you are actually bidding on
