    Hello,

    Please contact David on [email protected] regarding your request. He is located in the UK and can arrange shipping. I purchased items from him and they arrived in TOP condition.

    I don't see the issue?? Just try speaking to the person before jumping into conclusion. If your in the US and he's in the UK, do you really want to talk to him on the phone? $$$ Always pay with a credit card through paypal. Not a debit card. That way if you encounter an issue, you skip Paypals shitty investigation and get your money back right away through your credit card company.

    Well another way I found out is someone from another country wants to buy something they give you FedEx account you ship it.... Account doesn't exist and they have part and FedEx comes after you for shipping .... This happened to me shipping a supercharger to Dubai.... The bill came to 700 dollars! Invoice said package weighed 80lbs! More like 8! Needless to say they won't get a cent from me!

    but i'm not born yesterday... (it's Italian saying that mean... I don't believe everything/everyone)
    so... I typed in google... the mail..
    [email protected]
    he sent pm on every motor forum... with the same message...
    I think it's an easy way to get money... and do not sending anything.

    so... stay away from this user.

    Ale

    i think there should be a limit of post counts, before people can sell items.. it works great in other forums.
