That was some good reading, Bull

I especially liked the older thread where the guy was on the forum talking smack and lying like a dog about HIS dealings with the other members ...

Too bad you can't put a flag with a link to those kind of stories on someones eBay auctions...


That'd jack that clown up.

It kind or reminds me of that lying weasel Nate Cooper at the "Ol' parts Mine"...He got exposed on here and at the HAMB and hasn't been seen since. I keep looking for him, just so I can drag out some of those old threads......

edit in...I just went and looked at the guys eBay page..He must be doing something right, with a 98.5% rating over a 2055 score.

Is this the same guy? All of the locations and stuff match what's in that web forum.

i don't know mike. i didn't check into it that much as members of z28 are pretty good and reliable people, as are ours. Besides. i frikken HATE ebay. when i tried to sell my camaro on it there is NO live customer service. somebody in australia hyjacked my sale and as hard as i tried to get them to straighten it out i pretty much just had to let the auction expire. ebay should be smoked. alot of those hi ratings he got i can not explain to you.

i have posted it here on this board, mainly so that if anybody here has had any dealings with him i would like for them to tell us what they think of this person. any time somebody will represent something as NOS and then get a repop, or send a sub par home repair they are asking for it. as FANTASTIC as my OER console was for my 72 camaro, it still isn't NOS, ie it still needed to have the wires put in for the rear light. there is always that probability that it won't just snap right in. people don't have time to mess around. stock is stock. good as new means just that, not some cracked-out amatur attempt to fix something. you know this, i just got into my usual "rant mode".
if other people on this board can verify that he is a schmuck, then we will know. there HAS to be members on site that have dealt with this dude. hell, maybe they'll back him up.

I just look at everthing..You know, I grab the whole pail of trash and dump it all out and look for the good and bad.

Those guys at the z28 board all seemed straight up, reasonable folks, and the way that ebay guy sounded like a big jerk to them is what made me go look at his ebay page. I expected a whole string of negative feedback. I was dissapointed...

I did see that all of his auction descriptions are private...that's a sign thete there is a snake in the grass somewhere..

He showed up on FTE about the same time. The exposure here was passed on to there. He has not been back as far as I know.

GM Restoration Parts: Warning

To: 57chevy67olds
From: eBay Customer Support
Subject: Re: DB90012 Your recent email to eBay's Trust and Safety Department (KMM269388011V65852L0KM)

e-bay and what they are
this i got from eBay after months of
posting to customer support
read there e-mail to me below







------------------------------------------------------------
Dear William,

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to250123047162 . As I read through
your email, I found out that you haven't received the item you paid for.
I understand and feel how this concerns you and want to responsively
address your concern in this matter.

William, I would like to give you as much assistance as possible to help
you resolve the situation. However, eBay cannot get involved in the
actual transaction between buyers and sellers. eBay's role is simply to
provide a place for buyers and sellers to trade. We have no control over
whether a buyer or seller follows through and completes a particular
transaction.


when you sign up for eBay they never tell you this do they ?

Of course they tell you that......it's buried in the hundreds of disclaimers they tell you to read. You know, the stuff that everybody scrolls to the bottom of (without reading) and then clicks on "I accept the terms and conditions...yada,yada, yada"

The only thing they are strong on is helping with people who sell stolen goods.

The only way to protect yourself from slimeballs I know of is using an online escrow service like www.escrow.com.. If it's an expensive item it might be wise, and if they guy won't use it walk away.

They hold your money until you get the product and approve it for a small fee.

I sold a camaro part to this guy and he paid my asking price right away without haggling, so my dealing with him was positive. He seems to have a major attitude roblem though.

The gentleman's (?) name is question is Glenn, and yes he has quite the reputation on NastyZ28, I've dealt with him a few times, and have never been burned, but it's the fact he states his parts are NOS and they are repops (70-73 front spoiler brackets) and (clear seatbelt hooks) come to mind at the moment.

Glenn knows how to word things and work the system, if ya don't know any better you're happy and give the guy positive feedback.

Just an FYI, he doesn't go by gm_restoration_parts anymore, there was a big fiasco on NastyZ28, he now goes by Mid-Georgia_camaro I believe.

While I have no problem with him selling parts, the front spoiler brackets could of been had for $20 by the place he is/was getting them from (repops), he was selling them for $70 or $80 stating they were NOS.

I am GM_Restoration_Parts - Glenn

I happened to stumble upon this thread. As was shown previosly, my feedback speaks for itself. I am not sure how many of you buy/sell parts, I am sure all of us have bought or sold something used before...well, I happen to buy and sell hundreds of parts a month. You cannot please everyone and my tolerance for stupid people has got to be less and less as I get older. There are people who buy parts from EBAY without reading the ad or they just glance at pictures and expect a perfect used part each time. If you look at my item descriptions they are pretty generic. "Part is used and in good condition. Please look at the pictures and ask questions before you bid." I am not perfect I will admit that, but I do try hard to make my customers happy as I like repeat business. I have also bought MANY parts, especially from NastyZ28 members. I never try to talk them down, I pay asking price. I then take the time to clean the parts up, paint them if needed, make repairs to them and list them on EBAY. I have had many people scam me on that site and only rarely posted about it. There are always 3 sides to EVERY STORY. His side, your side and what actually happened. Thanks for letting me vent!

VR

Glenn

I also stumbled onto this thread. Having dealt w/eBay as both a buyer and seller, I'm familiar w/the ins and out's. Descriptions being 'generic' is one thing. Descriptions being deceptive or untrue are quite another.

What I did not see adressed is the charge of selling repop parts as "NOS". Authentic NOS parts deserve a much higher price than do repop parts, in most every case. It is MY opinion that if a part is advertised as NOS, it should not be a new reproduction part. And that knowingly selling a repop part as NOS is deception, plain and simple.
