That person claims to be in Australia... beyond the reach for most trades in my book - as well as the not so forward of sharing information.

International trade+ shaky feelings = PASS ON IT!

My belief is the guys a scammer. Latest add for trex 450 says willing to trade. When I asked what he was looking to trade for, he said "anything, cars, trucks, planes, helis, tanks, anything". Showed him what I had (which included a tx that goes for 200. used on ebay) and he passed. Okay fine, if you don't want it, you don't want it. I can live with that. What got me was he instantly dropped his price from 400. to 290. shipped (from Australia ) and asked "So what do you want to do, do you want it or not?" Little pushy and a little to eager for cash for a guy with 0 ratings. As shocking as you might find it, I passed

dude that radio is way over priced

i know its made in japan and its probably great but but i sell those sets from older (usually rc 10) buggies and cars with same or similar reciever and i sell for 40 to 60 bucks and you wonder why he didnt trade??????

should have offered something good

i do believe that he is phishing and it does seem a little fake but come on

thats like offering 20 bucks for a pound of silver even if it was fake noone would do it

also if anything just let him be i doubt anyone is dumb enough to fall for his stuff
notice how he never recieved trader rating for supposed sold heli

or anyone who has even come forward to say theu know him etc....
even if item is real and he was to ship i doubt that it is legitimate


id also like to point out on his behalf i have dealt with newbies sellers and have bought some high ticket items real cheap due to them being new

pay saftly like paypal will be best way if anyoneis intrested but id ask for a photo with the current newspaper with date visable just to avoid haveing to worry more about it




i have had similar issues what i usualy like to do is take a pic with my middle finger in the shot(not kidding)

if you dont trust him dont buy it
if you do trust him i have a bridge on the lower east side of manhatten id like to see if you have intrest in

That was just part of what i showed. Also showed 2 RC10s, multiple TXs, MANY parts, motors ect..... and told him to pick as much as he wanted. I had a feeling he was scamming, so I wanted to see how far he'd go.

makes a big difference
i had one dude offer me a rare engine in exchange for a airplane i had here a while back
it was running supposedly and he knew it was complete(sure) long and the slimy of it i ask for him to ship first when the guy had posted a tracking number i was confident enough to ship his on the fact i noticed he had 30 some odd feedback i actualy paid for shipping and insurance to tune of 52 bucks!
2 days later my package came the engine was not what had been sent to me in picture form still rare engine but this one was either the after or the parts he used to restore
i had an entire thread closed due to me being a bit angry and venting on here and found when i looked his feedback was all shill from last few weeks and he gots a permanent vacation for selling open rocker os and sending a os box empty (with postage paid through paypal for 3oz weight)

these are the worst situation here are some good ones
in last month ive order 10 items from here(have a good month can splurge)
3 items were not really as described but close enough
5 were great
im still waiting for one and my account have to be able to fund last on monday

this is average
ive sold 4 items off here in last month
i listed 3 on ebay so my buyers can feel protected(4 years 200 engines and zero bad feedback)200 actually came in today!!!!!!!
the 4 is from a sale listed here and picked up localy

all either buyers or sellers have to do is deal with persons in safe manor and we would be all good

this guy im sure will pop up again and get caught

one dude on here was recently tracked down and when confronted tried to attack a "buyer" unlucky for him the buyer was very prepard and entered the situation not only know the seller was shady but also actually counting on it

please look at other flames on bad seller you will see the posts of a local rcg guru that has the ability to navigate this site so well that he can get this guys ip and track actual location

i would have tried asking if he would accept a rtr or rtf usualy to test waters with traders but luckily i also have a contact in each state how buys items for me at a days notice

good luck finding what this guys deal is im sure its from a 56 card deck
