I bought a set of FD-dowel S5 TII irons from this joker last year. I posted a WTB thread and he emailed me directly with his phone number. He sent my some photos that looked decent and I paid him a fair price shipped to me. As soon as he got them money, he fell off the face of the earth. I finally got confirmation that he had shipped them but he wouldn't give me a tracking number. After 2 weeks he "finds" the tracking number that was printed that day...
I ended up getting decent parts for a decent price, but the pain in the *** of having to constantly hound him
and the fear of getting scammed was not wort hit.

Best part of the story, I reverse-googled the photos he sent me and he stole them directly from RotaryResurrection.com!

Sounds par for the course.

Rxdash713b tried selling me a first gen dash. He seemed really fishy. I sent him this message, "You are new to the forum and have made zero posts. I wont buy anything from a new member."

Update. I had another bizarre, but successful I guess, transaction with Jamal.

recently I posted a WTB thread for FC 89-91 engine front counter weights. According to my measurements, these weights are 0.915" thickness. I should also note that I had plenty of 86-88 weights which are more common, and those are >1" thickness. I posted this information in my WTB thread.

Off the forum I get a message from Jamal offering s5 counterweights and asking if I want to buy, I tell him that I will with the usual deal that he has to send them to me first. I reiterate the thickness that needs to be confirmed. He assures me that they are correct. HE asks how many I need, I tell him I can use several and ask how many he has available, to which he just asks how many I need again, so I throw out 10. He then sends me pics of some in a stack. Some of the pics appear to be the thicker versions, so again I ask to confirm that they are all <1" thickness because some in the pics look questionable. But of course you can't tell a thing like that for sure from pics and he says they are right, so I tell him to send them. We agree that I'll pay a set amount once they arrive and I've inspected them, $25 each which is on the higher end of what I wanted to pay, but fair enough if they are all correct.

He sends them out the next day and sends tracking. The day they are to be delivered is a saturday, and he's already sent me emails that morning asking me if I have them and when I will pay. I reply that they haven't arrived, and I've left the shop for the weekend by mid afternoon.

By Monday mid-morning I have numerous more emails telling me 1) they should be delivered soon, 2) they have been delivered, (those were from later saturday) and 3) when will I pay for them. I get a couple more emails while I am still reading through other stuff that morning again asking for payment and telling me that he's checked his paypal and doesnt see a payment. So I open the box and immediately I can see that most of these are not what I need.

He's sent 9, not 10. I ask what happened and he said the 10th "must be in his car if the box didnt look like it was opened". Okay, whatever, I dont really care how many I get, but that's a pretty lame excuse.

Of the 9, 2 measure the correct thickness. 6 are the 86-88 >1" thickness that I cannot use and did not need, and of those 6, 1 looks like it came from the titanic. The last 1 is kind of an oddball in-between thickness that I'm unsure of, but I gave the benefit of the doubt on that one.

I asked him what the deal was with sending the wrong sizes and he really wouldn't give a straight answer. Later he mentioned something about having to estimate the thickness...even a simple measuring tape would have differentiated the ones I needed from the ones I didn't. I asked what he wanted to do about the wrong ones and he never really said for sure. In the middle of this he is also trying to sell me other random parts and sending me pics of those parts and telling me "dont send them back yet in case you want to buy more parts" which again really made no sense to me.

I wound up paying him for the 3 (2 correct and 1 questionable) plus shipping at the agreed prices, and that was the end of it. I decided not to buy any of the other parts he was offering just to be done with the deal for now. The 6 wrong weights are still sitting on my shelf abandoned.

This guy has been banned from the forum an incredible number of times under different names. Can his ip not be blocked completely?

It's easy enough to get around IP blocks, I did it for a number of years myself.
