^This is a working number that is his when he was talking to me pior to 1st round of payments.

Pretty much all I know about him, made this just cause Ill prob get yelled at later for talking in the FS section about this subject. Its pretty much been 1 week since the last time I spoken with him as well. I thought id give time cause i was sure he answer, im wrong. Now its just frustrating.

Pic reference that he removed after it said SOLD.

Has anyone met this guy in person at meets or anything?
Lost complete contact with him after sending round 1 of payments. I saw him logg on once after he was sent some money but neglected phone calls prior to 1/1/08 and ignored 1 PM that was sent prior to 1/1/08. Still to this date ignoring phone calls and not returning messages.

Call the cops and say internet fraud... then take him to court and then he will go to prision... easy as that....
:hahano:

buyer: hey mister police officer, i can't get in touch with this guy about a car that i haven't finished paying for.

cop: silence...click...beep, beep, beep, beep, beep...

recording: if you'd like to make a call, please hang up and try again.

the buyer doesn't have a leg to stand on until he has finished paying for the car. the seller doesn't have to do shit until the car is paid for.

if the car was paid for in full, this would be a legitimate cry for help.

Unless you have some sort of sales contract, receipt of down payment, etc - this is going to be tough on.

I really had a bad vibe on this entire "sell a car in 4 days" from the get go.

I belive it was 3500. what sucks I dont have his accual address to "find him"
I already tried to trace the address but im assuming hes paying rent somewhere so thats why its untracable cuz the house name or w/e he lives in is under the leaser name.
Even the cell number i cant trace back ethier, I think its somewhat new and wasnt updated yet cause its giving me an address else where (another city) under a different name.
Im assuming the Mods on here cant trace back an IP address could they? from somebody that hasnt been on since the 1st?

I really didnt think he screw us over after buying and paying other members here for parts n ect. Owell, if anyone from his area should blow up his phone, see if he answers. He said he usually screens his calls so he told me leave a message and ill get back to you. Might not pick up to any number he doesnt reconize.

Oh ya also got the name to his wife I belive as well its
Sara Troche

updated 1st post for her name.

ya. i agree with him. you should have never sent any kind of money if that guy was in that big of a hurry. lol. thats not always a good sign. i mean it would be awesome to get stuff done in 4 days. but if you are buying a car out of state that always doesnt happen so easy :p even when buyin a car on ebay they say not to send money that you cant track...

hope things get better though, all sellers arent assholes anyways. i got a good deal when i bought my rumble bee outright.

Another thing - all those pictures you're showing are on his photobucket account. You may want to save those and rehost them just so YOU have control of them. Otherwise, once he deletes them, you're SOL. Not that the photos can help you any (other than verification of the condition of the car at time of sale), but as I said before - you need to have a sales contract and some other documentation in place.

I swear, we REALLY need a "How to purchase things 101" thread made explaining how to do things correctly without setting yourself up. Time and time again I see all these private sales go sour because everyone is so eager to send cash to a random Joe. This is why you don't make huge purchases over the web unless its a verified business.

The ONLY time I would make a vehicle purchase over the web thats not local, is if I fly there myself to see the car in person, purchase, do necessary paperwork, and load it up on a truck to ship back. Just tossing someone $3500 without any sales contract is pretty much going to be considered a gift.

i was reading that add again AZN and when shawn said

"STILL HERE. Sorry NO trades i need CASH in 4 days or less."


that is just asking for bad news there lol.


I bought my truck recently off ebay from a guy in Michigan, 5 hrs away. it took a month to even get the insurance set up and the loan for the truck, all the paperwork. for one bc his title was an MI title and they dont have the same regulations for vehicles there as PA has. i did vehicle checks to make sure of proper maintenance etc. bc the fact that he was selling an 05 rumble bee for 20k with only 1,200 miles was a bit fishy too.. but in general.

that guy was very patient with me, he didnt even ask for any type of deposit on the truck. i went up twice to test drive it before i even gave him the cash for it. so i knew everything was real. sometimes you get lucky i guess, i ended up being friends with him after all that too and he still keeps in contact to see how the truck is :p.


but if you ever buy a vehicle that isnt at a dealership again. i think you should take your time :p ... lol dont send cash :p

he could easily lie and say that he never received the money even though you said you sent it on a message.

^What AD do you speak of?

Uhh well I personally woulda done things different and accually have the shippers have it picked up before accually paying the deal. I wasnt there every step of the way when she did it.

She basically was given the information so she could do a wire transfer =/
In which of doing so, this is how we obtained the name of Sara Troche. She also told me when she was calling before I think she said she picked up once when trying to reach Shawn.

And yes I do have all the pictures saved for whatever it may count to.

Just look up his username and see which posts he made. That way you can see who sold him stuff, and get his address that way. Good luck man
