Default Any of you guys know "06 Scooby" aka Robert Bell of Peoria, AZ?

I bought a VF22 off of him in August for $500 shipped, and he hasn't sent me the turbo nor has he returned my money. He said he was selling for a friend, he gave the money to his friend, and his friend screwed him by not giving him the turbo. Actually, his friend screwed me. Assuming there ever really was a friend.

I'm appealing to you SWICers since, during our e-mail communications in which he assured me he'd make good on this deal, he said he is well known amongst SWICers and they'd vouch for his character. So, is this guy a jerk off deadbeat, or is he a decent guy? Seeing as how I have neither my turbo nor my refund, I'm heavily leaning toward jerk off deadbeat.

Anyway, the guy hasn't logged on to nabisco since he stole my money from me, so I guess the legacy he wants to leave on this board after 1000+ posts is that he's a douchebag thief.

Of course, if he winds up getting me my turbo or my refund, I'll take this back and delete this thread. But until then, I'm leaving it up since he did tell me to check with you guys to verfiy his character.

If you've got any tips on how to get a hold of him (he's stopped responding to my e-mails) I'd appreciate a PM. Or if any of you know him, I'd appreciate it if you'd let him know that this is the nabisco legacy he's leaving if he doesn't make good on our deal.

Thanks.

BTW, here's a link to the VF22 sale thread.

I know the guy personally and he isn't like that, I'll try to get a hold of him and let you know.

So, I looked up old posts and saw his phone number in a couple of threads. Called it. Apparently no longer his. Unless he's Mexican and really good at pretending he's not really Robert Bell.

So now I guess I have to resort to whatever legal action is possible due to this worthless sack of crap absconding with my funds. Karma's a bitch, Robert Bell of Peoria AZ. Until you make this right, you'll get yours.

I dont personally know him, but best of luck to you in getting your money back man!

I bought his stock rear sway bar, which he claimed was 20mm. Turned out to be 17mm. I had no problems communicating with him or meeting up with him to return it and get $$ back. Granted, it was only about $40 I think, but he was cool. Maybe he took up heroin after that.

^^^i remember that
he bought my 20mm rear sway and he got confused thinking that 02's were bigger than 20mm and he thought the 06's came with 20mm

though i made it clear the size of the sway so i dont know how you get that messed up

He took them out of my car and never saw him after that..I would TRY AND TRY to get ahold of him and when I would he would give me some dumb excuse...After time I told him to make me payments and he agreed which he never did...SO like 4 months after all that I told him to keep them since he needs them more then me...IMHO...He is a scumbag for doing such a thing...I even gave him the "friend" deal $500 for BRAND NEW STI SEATS!!!!

David,

Sorry for all the hassles, this will be the last time i will try to help out a friend thats for sure, my friend (justin) will not return my phone calls at this point, So i'm responsible to refund your money since you did deposit it into my account, I am truly sorry for the hassle this is putting you thru, i went thru the EXACT same thing over a motorola Q a few months back, you have my WORD that i will get you your money back, look at my history on nasioc and even ask the guys in SWIC, this is not how I do business. Regards

Bobby
That was an e-mail he sent to me a while ago. Any of you guys know who this Justin guy is? Is he imaginary? Is he someone Bobby's throwing under the bus?

So much for letters of recommendation for him from the guys in SWIC.

I dont know about a Justin as I didnt hang out with him, but I know that someone that is friends with him has a vf22 now and got it around the same time he was selling the one in the other thread, posted in there sticking up for him even.....

--edit--

I just realized that you dont know me from Adam, and I have a vf22 as well, so here I searched to find my install thread so you didnt think that someone is me
