I finally got mine back on Monday. Not through a refund though. Through a PayPal claim that I filed earlier last month.

He posted both of the below on rs25.com so I assume he's fine with us all knowing. I haven't heard from him since I first texted him over Christmas. He responded that night, but not since then.

281.650.1413

87w201cosworth@gmail.com

When I texted, he didn't respond through that number, but instead through one of those free text apps.

So you got money back from PP then, not from him? I did mine as a personal transaction so they won't cover it for me. Hindsight.

Correct. He did not personally refund me. Paypal pulled the funds from his account.

His name is Carlo Ramos and I am looking for him and going to his last known address this week. He has a car of mine that he sold to another member that I just found tonight. This is a huge mess and if I find him first you get the leftovers.

You want his last known address contact me since he has taken a lot of people in the last few months. Last I heard he was going to work for the DaVita Dialysis Center.

Good Hunting!

He has no family emergency. He was in Colorado training for his new job which is what he told me right at that time then disappeared right after. This guy is a thief and that's why he is reaching outside of Houston to sale parts. If you did not get what you paid for then you are more than likely done.

Also explain to me how a Hurricane affected him shipping to all these people when he lives in the Houston area. Excuse me for posting over and over to this thread but you need to understand how serious this is. Do not by from him since he is a thief. He stole my car and sold it to another member; how much more proof is needed.

Holy ****. Jack ass. Dude when I texted you at the number you posted on rs25.com, you replied to me via a third party texting app. What was your name on that app???? "S2kver02"

Nice try. What an idiot. Send me my money back. Now. Or I'm coming to Houston as well.

As I said above, here he is replying to me via S2kver02...

1 of 3:

From You car Sucks (S2KVER02) via textPlus group msg:
"I just got all the parts back I have sent and one only made it to the buyer. Pls confirm with your..."

2 of 3:

"...info as I'm working with PayPal about all the refunds. I apologize for this issue I never have any problems sending parts only this time"

Text back to..."

3 of 3:

"...chat OR reply "!leave" to exit


And then the conversation went on some more as he offered to return my money. So now we see he has joined this board under a new name.

How do you sleep *******? People work hard for their money. We have bills and responsibilities. What the hell makes you thinking just taking it is an okay thing to do? This **** ruins people's budgeting, creates stress, effects our lives. Make it right.

Confirming, from everything I can see on the Mod side (substantial) it's the same user.

The one account is banned, the other is in a two week TO so that you can continue to send PMs to get your money or parts.

If this person still owes you money or parts and does NOT make it right quickly, you should open a police report in his home town (Houston?).

I know Carlo personally and after I turned up the heat 24 hours ago he just out of the blue text me this morning. He told me that he is not avoiding me but never answered multiple text, voice mails or PM's in almost three months. He also tells me he lost his job but yet he was in Colorado before that in training and if he lost his job why is he just recently trying to buy everything he see's? He also told me the reason he got rid of my car was so he could pay for it (WTF). He said he did not sell it but traded the car for a rusted out piece of crap so he could sale the parts off of it then pay me for my car he gave away (Again WTF). So I should feel better that he gave my car away and did not sale it so he could get a junker to pay me (Would it have been easier to give me my car)? He also told me that everyone is going to get their money back but his account is frozen (Whatever). Oh and he did not want to talk to me because he wanted to have my money first from the crap car he traded for to sale parts from and remember he was not avoiding me. I used to call him a friend but he just fell to less than Pond Scum with me.

Yes he lives in the Houston city limits next to Spring Texas and yes I am sorry to have to write this about a person I considered a friend some time back and yes I am sorry for everyone he has done wrong. I am 51 years old and have a strong rating with Nasioc and I am a professional car builder and put trust in the wrong person and shame on me for that. I wish all well in their endeavors to retrieve what is owed to them but use your mind and not make any rash decisions that can't be changed.

Just went through a round of texting with Carlos. I asked again about the money to which he again replied with the closed PP account. I told him he could just send the parts of course as another option since I was happy to have paid for them in the first place. He actually went to far as to send me a picture of the intake setup I bought (but that hadnt seen until just now) and reminded me of the fender brace having cracked during removal. He offered to throw in the front strut bar for the hassle of all this and says he will ship next week...we will see.

I told him I'd be posting here to give him so credit for not ducking me and for still giving the impression he wants to fix things.

Well, alright gents. I have received my parts finally and they are already partially installed on the car. I don't know what to say about the seller as far as his uncalled for delays, but he has in fact made things generally right as far as our deal goes. I did not get the fender braces that apparently don't want to come off of his car, but he did send the front strut bar to make up for it. I am honestly tempted to buy from him again under some type of half up front half C.O.D. type deal as I think he genuinely wants to do the right thing but for whatever reason had some hangups. He has a number of parts I would love to have so we will see...

No.. dont ever buy from him again. You seem like a great guy with a lot of forgiveness. Please dont give a guy like him a second chance. He will likely just use your money to pay someone else back. Then you'll wait another 3 months for parts.

Its kind of like a drug addict to be honest. Thats what I see when I read through this thread. Just a bunch of lies and excuses because he doesnt want people to see who he truly is. He even has a seperate account to post with so he can "verify" his sale thread.. thats low, not to mention extremely deceitful.

Just out of curiosity is the front strut bar Carbon Fiber?

I would never buy anything from this individual. This person credibility isn't worth it. Reading the past post, I am concerns this person isn't banned. This reflects how NASIOC condones the actions of its members.

If you look more closely, you will see that both of his accounts are in fact now banned.
Banning is a last resort and doesn't solve anything for the people who are out parts or money, it just makes it impossible for the person to communicate through the forums any further should they choose to do so. Sometimes (rarely but it does happen), they will come back and make things right. If we ban them you still have to pursue outside means to get a resolution. That said, not being banned doesn't mean they can continue to sell here, if they fail to resolve the situation and make good to their buyer/seller(s) their days of selling on NASIOC are over (although we may depend on you to spot and report any new FS threads they post).
In cases like this one, where the person is a repeat offender and tries to hide behind multiple accounts, then yes a ban is in order.
And now I'm going to close this thread, since the person is banned and whatever resolution has taken place is probably it.
If any involved parties have an issue with the thread being closed please PM me or use the report button.
