bad review for a board member : (

Postby Audacity Racing » Fri Dec 23, 2005 3:09 am

:cry:

i ordered some parts from AGENT SMITH a few weeks ago. he said they were shipped last week and still no sign. he will not answer pm's, emails, or even phone calls. i'm not the only person who he seems to have duped either. he made false claims that conflicted with themselves... things like, "i'm wating on yoru money... got the stuff all boxed up and ready to go!" but then when the money gets there "i'll get this boxed up soon and mail it out when it's ready." he also made claims to myself and lanos2001 that he would give us tracking numbers for our orders because he shipped them. we have yet to see a part or a tracking number.




i unfortunately felt this was something everyone on the board should know. if my merchandise and nick's shows up then i will formally appologize and delete the post.


also, the reason i'm making a big deal from this is that i paid $100 for the stuff i'm supposed to be receiving... a large chunk of money :evil:

yeah what kenny said. he told me as well that he received the package back b/c of bad handwriting on the address. :roll: they would not have taken the package if they couldn't read it. luckily i was only out $20. but the fact that he STOLE money means an ass whoopin if i were to see him face to face.

guys, if you used paypal, you could try to get it back. If paypal doesn't refund your money and you used a credit card via paypal. File a claim with your credit card company and they will refund your money.

Hmmm... looks like he's one of those scam artists. I wonder if it's Aveo04 back with a different name. Anybody remembers that guy? Check if the ip addresses are the same. If so, ban him.

i have written a letter promising legal action if i don't recieve money or goods. i've also filed a dispute with the money-order company and paypal. still no word from him... though the paypal dispute resolution should get his attention quickly... seeing as how it will hurt his internet business if he doesn't fix it.


the legal action is for two seperate amounts for 500 dollars, one for stealing $105 dollars if goods aren't delivered, and the other for breaking a contract. i kept the amounts to 500 each to keep them in small claims court in the state of tennessee.



the letter was mailed by courier yesterday, and should arrive sometime this next week. it is signature required... by him... for it to be recieved. photo id required. this way he can't say he never recieved the legal notice.

ok, i emailed agent smith yesterday to inform him just briefly that he had 10 days to respond to me before the action would take place from paypal as well as myself...



i got a response



Robert,
I still don't have my parts and still have heard nothing from you for two
weeks. I've seen you on the forum since then, so I know you aren't
incapacitated.

--
please do not lie to me, ive not posted or logged onto daewootech since i
left for vacation on the 18th.

--

I've called and you do not answer. I've emailed and you do not respond.
I've pm'd on daewootech and nothing there either.

--
as i stated before, do not lie to me. i can pull my cell phone logs from my
phone AND on cingular's website and prove you otherwise.

--


Here is the deal... I have filed a formal complaint with Paypal as well as
the money-order company.

--
the money order company wont get into a civil matter. if youre going to play
lawyer, do some research. IANAL...

--

I have a letter ready to send to you which states that I will be suing you
for the amount of $500 over loss of my money/property, as well as $500 for
breach of contract (all the private messages you have sent to me have been
logged and stand as a contract). That puts you in a position to loose $1000
plus legal fees if I do not receive my parts that I ordered from you. On top
of that, Paypal with mar your Ebay store with a black mark as a non-shipping
seller and you will loose customers.

--
lose is the word you are looking for. and for suing me for more than you
paid? do not make me laugh sir, as you will be laughed out of court if you
attempt to do so. my cousin is a business attourney, and should you sue me,
she will be representing me.

--


I encourage you to get back to me and straighten this out.

--
when you send childish threats as your initial point of contact with me, can
you blame me for 'avoiding' you (which im not, hence this email)?

--


If you try to once again dodge me, I will tell you this as well. If i do not
get a response from you by January 10, 2006, I will be sending a courier to
your residence to hand deliver your summons for court. If that doesn't get
your attention I will press charges on the grounds of theft and then a
police officer will deliver to you a court summons, and possibly a warrant.
If you dodge that, you would be in contempt of court and would then be
placed on a fugitive listing. Based on the fact that I have all your
personal info like address, phone number, etc, I don't think it would be
hard for a bounty to be made upon you.

--
i just contacted the local police department regarding this. i encourage you
to not have someone deliver the papers, but rather send them certified mail
VIA the USPS.

oh, and im not worried about going to jail. i have several friends on the
force that will more than happily assist me with this matter, should it come
to that.

--


I heavily encourage you to get back to me.


I am giving you a warning now. You have 10 days to figure this out. Tracking
numbers are not enough either. If i do not have sufficient proof that the
packages have been sent, be it by physical delivery or a postal service
confirmation based on package size and weight, I will pursue my legal
options to the fullest extend.

--
so youre telling me, that a tracking number which documents weight, size,
ect ect is not sufficient enough, but yet you want a physical delivery
conformation?? wtfh is that? i just called fedex, and theyve never heard of
that. you might be referring to a signature verification of a delivery, but
thats the closest i can get at...


either way heres the deal:

the parts were sent on the 18th. the intake mani, the tb, the lights and 2
tire bolts, correct?

ive got the tracking number at my apt. that is all the proof i have. youre
more than welcome to send your delivery guy to inspect the daewoo in my
parking lot. he will find its void of the parts you want. hell, he can tow
the whole bloody car, i have literally no more use for it.

i have no reason to lie to you, or attempt to cheat you out of a petty
ammount of money. if the post office lost the parts, i will replace them
free of charge. i do have hookups who can get me what i need.

however, i am not happy with your business practices. allow me to share some
of my years of experience at running a business with you...

when someone owes you money, you contact them first by phone. you ask them
politely 'hey, im not sure if you realize it, but you have an outstanding
debt with me and id like to get it resolved'.

if that doesnt work, you take it a step further and send them a letter
and/or email stating what the phone call said.

you do not send them ONE email threatening to sue them if they dont contact
you back.

paypal will not mar with ebay on this one, since ebay OWNS paypal and this
transaction had NOTHING to do with ebay. also, since you seem to think fin
addict and me are related, i guess it wouldnt hurt to point out that fin
addict has 100% positive feedback on ebay, due to ME selling for them. if i
went to court, that would help boost my character with the courts and show
them i dont rip people off.

also, im not affiliated with fin addict anymore, as the store owners owe ME
money. youre more than welcome to say all the nasty stuff you want about
them, but it in no way will come back on me. for the record, i dont own an
ebay store.

again, i apoligize since i know im being an ass, but had you sent a nice
email stating the point you had to make, i wouldnt have been an ass. i am
more than willing to get you the parts, but you have to give me time sir.

after i contact the post office monday (yes, i will go out of my bloody way
on my vacation to check on this), i will know what happened to the parts. if
they were delivered, i will start a claim process and email you the claim #
since you have made it clear the parts werent delivered.

if the parts were lost, i will start a claims process as well.

if, and only IF, the parts were delivered and the post office confirms this,
i will make sure that you have the parts you bought from me by the 10th. i
do have friends that can hook me up with daewoo stuff like that.

if they were lost, like i said, ill email you the claim # (and the tracking
#) and get back to you when its resolved. you cant honestly expect me to
replace parts that were lost in the mail.

ifyou do and sue me, you will most certainly be laughed out of court.


again, i hate to be an ass.. well not really, i had a tiff with the gf...
but dont make your first email to me be a rude one. i was never rude with
you.

im sorry my vacation does not permit me to log onto daewootech every day,
but honestly man i have a life. i sold some other parts to people on that
forum (3 others to be exact) and you're the only one thats said he didnt get
his stuff.

but, im not a complete asshole. i will make sure you get your shit like you
paid for, one way or the other. you've seen the feedback on fin-addict on
ebay, 100%. im not a thief or con artist and i take great offence that you
bunch me with rifraf like that.

like i said though, i will make sure you get your shit, but please drop the
asinine legal shit. im not a con man or petty thief, i have much better
things to do...

-Robert Camacho



couple things here...

1. your phone does not have a voicemail setup currently. i have my phone records which indicate 22 calls to you, all of which were un-answered covering 7 days.


2. Lanos2001, NICK DURRETE, did not recieve his stuff either


3. you told me you had an ebay store... i'll find the pm if need be.


4. your local law enforcement has no bearing on internet transactions regarding commerce. the fact of that is that it lies within the state's power as it is justified as an "interstate" transaction.


5. my brother is also an attorney. as far as the money goes, those are both the amounts legal by the state of tennessee in order to provide necesariy provisions to justify a court battle. i was assured by my lawyer as well as the TN state DA's office that this would hold up under circumstances if lead to be crimnal as well as civil.


6. i have had 6 packages, delivered from all parts of the country to my residence, all sent after december 18th, one of which was on upsp priority with expected delivery of 7-12 days.



look, the only reason i am an ass is because i don't have tons of money to throw around, and these were things that i was treating myself to. when i don't hear anything from you or get the stuff... i immediately worry. i did call, i'll mail you a copy of my phone bill clearly stating that i called the number you gave me on daewootech, 24 times totalling some 19.7 minutes (not that time matters).

you told myself and nick that you would get us our tracking numbers on the 17th of december, is it then a lie that you mailed them out that day too seeing as how you just emailed me stating it was on the 18th? these kind of discrepancies are what made me email you in the first place. i have emailed you before on your other email (the one provided at daewootech) and did not get a response there either. this is why i went to fin addict and got your email from there, which obviously worked.


i don't think i am in the wrong here. i am NOT the only member to have a claim against you as far as not recieving merchandise, so once again you've made a false claim. i only got in a fit because of the discrepancies, your timely vacation that left us in the dark, and the apparant lack of merchandise.

thank you for getting back to me. i hope you can see my point that from my perspective, things look fishy, and 100 bucks is a lot. i appologize for making you upset about this, but clearly i'm ahead of you there.


if you would like a scan of my phone bill, i would gladly send it to you.





regards,

kenny cornett







efrain will dig through and get me the last time agent smith logged on if i request it, but it was on christmas day. myself and nick have had several conversations about agent smith and we would always remark how he was never online. i sent nick a pm the instant i saw agent smith on december 25 with huge red letters. efrain could verify that as well, so agent smith was indeed here.


there are tons of fishy claims... let's name some:

1. shipping date discrepancies...
agent smith wrote:yep. monies arrived. packin everything up :)
- DECEMBER 15TH
i asked for an expected delivery:
prolly not till next week. fastest option at this point would be USPS, since fedex doesnt deliver on sat or sun (they will for a big price increase). through usps, should take 3-5 days, so id say wedensday next week you should have it.
- DECEMBER 15TH
i asked for a tracking number:
agent smith wrote:you got it sir. im still cleaning out my teg right now, and the reciept is in the center console. when the matinence is done, i will pm it to you :)

damn my keyboard is dirty now...
- DECEMBER 17TH

that was the last message i got from him until i emailed his last night


i know you can schedule a pickup... but they do not schedule 3 days in advance like that, and he wouldn't have his tracking numbers in the car if he had scheduled in advace for pickup.


discrepancies over price:

i asked him for his front hub and lug bolts:
agent smith wrote:i can include all that no problem.

you said you sent the MO out last sunday, right? if you didnt, you can paypal me the money now.
- DECEMBER 10TH
i asked him if 25 dollars added to the price would be enough:
still not here. yeah you aid 25 for those parts. if you want em, paypal to daewoolanos2000_sport@yahoo.com


ill take pix of my woo later today and send em to you so you can point out the bolts you want

i explained that the bolts were just the lug bolts and i only needed two:
agent smith wrote:yeah ill send you 2. just paypal me 27$ and ill send em when i get your MO.


does anyone else see the cost increase? luckily i was able to get ahold of the hub on my own and paid him 5 dollars for the lugs. since that time, nick has sent me two lugs, free of charge, from a similar distance, that arrived in 3 days flat, not 15+.




i really do hate to be a jerk to some people, but i do feel justified. agent smith made bogus claims on the yahoo group of having a 2.2L lanos, which we all know is still a unicorn here in the states (no one has seen one... only rumors).

i'm not out to get him, i just want my money or stuff, and i know that nick feels the same (though he's only out 20 bucks). also, nick is just a few hours drive from san antonio, it shouldn't take you 15 days to walk that far, let alone carry a small box with a shifter.

-sorry if i mispelled your name nick :lol:





like i said in the first post, when this gets resolved, i'll clean it all up onmy end, but feel as though i am clearly doing nothing wrong and agent smith is the one who has the problem.
