    I had a feeling that was coming...

    We may be calling his bluff.... :banghead:

    I would start calling the local police and pressing fraud charges against him. He may become a little more "cooperative"...

    Also post on his facebook page about the run around he's giving you and see what happens... :finga:


    If he does respond, then we need to get the axle out of his hands ASAP.... (If in fact he still does have it...)

    I don't trust anything the guy tells you, until we get the axle...

    Don't let him stall you until the clock runs out on your recourse. Start prosecuting asap, then if he follows through, you can always drop the charges.... Don't miss out on your window of opportunity...

    Since this is between states and countries, the FBI or other federal authority may be able to help...

    DO THIS!!!! ▲▲▲▲▲▲▲

    Don't give this guy any more time. IF you must give him more time, at least text him to tell him you're contacting authorities tomorrow if you don't hear from him...then do it.

    I don't threaten people...when I give them an ultimatum and they don't respond, I follow through on my ultimatum.

    His name is Jeff Elliott and he lives in sycamore Illinois the police said give him one more week to make good and then they will deal with it. This is a picture of his car if it loads properly. He got it off a guy named mark who was really nice and even called Jeff and try ed to help me out.

    I'm guessing if the police said they would take care of it after a week, you should not post his address until you have given them time to do so. Even then, if some wacko were to hurt this scammer it could blow back on you. My son is a deputy sheriff and he advises against folks taking action on their own, 'cause many times it turns out worse for them.

    Sometimes we have to just learn from our mistakes and move on. If a seller won't take PayPal or cash at delivery, I've learned look elsewhere.

    Just sayin'

          Well I have been in touch with the cops. It seems like a slow process. Is there anybody willing to go to this guy's door and try to pick up my rear end for me? I will pay all shipping fees it will just take someone's time.

          I am only 2? hours from this place... there has got to be someone willing to stop and pick it up but will be hard if the "seller/scammer" doesn't show up or won't communicate a time to pick it up.
