Default Just got scammed...

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1699609


wow i cant belive this...i tohught i would be getting gold stock bbs's in good condition but instead i recieve 2 spray painted rims they dont even have the center caps...there is overspray all over the rim...this guy is such a newb and i hope he gets his..../rant......sorry guys i just needed somewhere to vent and this has made me so so so so mad....im so close to just flying to flordia and kicking him in the balls How bout them diamondbacks?

UPDATE 5/7: So i hear i got a package at home looks like it might be the other wheels ...regardless there still spray painted

UPDATE 5/8: Well i got all four wheels..with the bbs center caps..sigh....im just gonna end up trying to sell them myself because i dont wanna deal with the hassle of having to send them back and deal with this douchenose trying to get my money back becasue he never signs on and suck the big one at communication...so there you go WRXSMY you got my money for crappy wheels that you sold me good job man...karma is a B***H and what comes around goes around....the rims are not damaged in anyway but could use a cleaning and coat of something else (maybe black?)...well thank god this has came to an end because im done dealing with this guy

Sorry to see this happen. I have been wanting to get a back-up set of goldies for my `05, or at least a 5th/spare, but have always been afraid to pull the trigger on out-of-state buys...

Hope things work out for you!

thats bull**** man

reminds me kinda of when i just got my OEM wrx 17's. supposedly perfect condition with no damage and he even just put "fresh paint" on just for me.

i get the wheels and two where nearly curbed the whole 360 degrees of the edge of teh wheel. to top it off his "fresh paint" was only to touch up the curbed areas to hide them better. oh ya, did i mention he painted the wheels completly filthy dirty then put them in his shippin containers wet....

good luck man, i just bit the bullet on mine and sanded my **** down and repainted them myself.
