    Got screwed buying an engine

    So i purchased an engine from a guy on ebay with alot of feedback and great customer service. Paid him the money and shipped my old engine. Now its been 2 weeks with no email responses and his cell phone is disconnected. I filed a claim with paypal to get my money back which is looking promising so far, but now I need a new/used engine with carbs and stator. Basicly the whole damn thing.


    Help?

I emailed four times with no response but the emails were read (AOL tells you if they were read). I then called his phone which was disconnected. Once I heard that... i filed claims with paypal for all three transactions I had with him. His website was www.catchawavejetski.com and he is located in Florida.

    18th NW Terr
    Cape Corral

    That is the address I sent my engine to.
    Do a Google search on the company name, you may find alternate phone numbers and addresses. Also, don't forget to do a Whois search, here is GoDaddy's results:
