Post Rodrunner- Wheres my money?

Hey everybody, I just wanted to post up a message telling a little story.

Once upon a time there was this nice guy. He liked to go on hotrodders.com because he likes hotrods and there is a lot of nice people there where he could learn a lot. He had a shift kit in his garage that he wanted to get rid of, so he posted a message saying if anybody wanted it, give him a holler. Here comes somebody whos interested (not saying any names) who goes by the name of....well, lets just say RODRUNNER. He gives me, er him his address and they both agree on $10 for the shift kit and $18 for shipping/handling to ship it from CA to VA or something. So this nice guy ships the shft kit, and as soon as the not-so-nice guy gets it he sends the nice guy an email. In this email he says something along the lines of "hey i got the shift kit, thanks a lot. I'll definately send the $28 check to you. Don't worry about it, you'll get the money." Well, about a month later still no check in the nice guys mail box. Well, i'll just send this not so nice guy (who we'll just call RODRUNNER for the time being)an email. Sounds like a good idea right? Wrong, such an email doesn't even exist anymore. Now heres a delima. The nice guy is without a shift kit OR money. What did this nice guy do to deserve this kind of treatment? RODRUNNER???? HUH? PUNK!

Too bad you can't trust no one in these days... They don't trust you enough to send the money first and you don't trust them enough to send the parts first...

Unfortunately that sort of thing happens alot these days. Hell, I sent a certain engine builder, name witheld, $800.00 for a set of heads that were supposed to be 9.5:1 compression. Turns out after we checked, they were 7.8:1 heads. Told me to put them on and I'd be happy, but sorry, no returns. I was pi##ed! Too bad on your end, usually car guys are the most trustworthy people I know, especially with car stuff. I say the guy's an spineless a..hole who needs to learn what goes around comes around. Too bad he doesn't live next door to ya. Good luck.

Alright. Heres a long story made short on how people like that get it back.
I was young(dumb) bught a GOOD 427 off this guy for 1500 bucks. It was **** and I got screwed.
Years later. My friend loses 500 bucks at a theater. Returned wallet, no money. Im telling her about my engine story and how you never hear about it, but people like that always get theres.
An hour later. Im joking about a Harley Rodeo held at our fairgrounds with another girl I work with, when she tells me it was a blast. Only bad thing happened was Bob(guy that screwed me on the engine)his wifes pures got stolen. Had 1500 dollars in it! Tell me that wasnt the big guys way of tellin me I was right. We just usually never know.
Hes probably out testing the shift kit out and the cars overheated, cracked a head and hes done. You just wont hear about it,but it happens. HG

Sorry buddy but you can chalk that up to another lesson learned in life. Been there, done that. Unfortunately we (the good guys) tend to want to take people on their word, but I have seen it backfire too often. Now I agree with the others, money first then deliver part.

The first rule is to get the money first. Honor is not very prevalent in our society anymore. The old saying goes, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

Hmmm...seems to me there might be an IP address attached to that Nickname?

Could an administrator find out this kind of information Jon? Hypothetically of course.

Ok let me explain, I pay everyone I owe but with Christmas and my stupid job rearanging our pay schedule I had to go three weeks before I get my check and I haven't had the money! plus on top of all that my internet service provider screwed up my account and cancelled my service and haven't been able to email you. I'm sending this from my work. I'm sorry!!! I get paid this friday and was planning to send it to you then, But instead Santa brought me some Christmas money and I sent it out today. To all the other people on the board, Please don't think bad of me, I pride myself on my reputation. I think everyone one this board are great! but I don't want you to think I'm a deadbeat who don't pay his dues, I do!!! This is something that was beyond my control and I will take care of. I do not lie, cheat, steal or rip off anyone or anything!!! Please forgive me for not getting in touch wih you sooner! Again I'm sorry and you WILL get your money! It has been sent! I understand where your coming from and I would feel the same way if I was in your shoes. I didn't expect you to send it out before you received the money. Kinda wish you hadn't. all of this would have been avoided.
