Scam Artist Mike Setzer, "Tigermike" loose!! Hickory, N.C.


I bought a Moki 180 Engine from Mike 21 days ago so far nothing!
I had one e-mail from him, saying it was shipped by FedX after about 10 e-mails, that was 14 days ago. No tracking numbers nothing!
Communication with Mike is impossible,e-mails a waste of time!

Apparently he sold a Heli and another Engine the same day and those guys have yet to receive their items also.

I have since filed with Paypal, as have two of the other buyers

So fellow's put this guy on your watch list!

Same as above... bought a Saito .62 engine from him two weeks ago. Said it was on its way via Fedx... never heard from him again. I have a claim through paypal.

This is the first time I got scammed here. I have to admit, I thought I was being careful watching peoples feedback and all, but I got taken.

Still, most of the people here are very honest and watch out for each others back. Goes to show you, you can't be too careful these days.

Has a fair bit of good feedback previously.
Last online activity looks like on the 18th.

Hope everything is OK!

Maybe he'll tell you "the truth", like his family has been dropping like flies, or something like that.

You got that right!

I think they are coming out of the sewers and cracks in the floor selling stuff!

And they supposably have good feedback or (bogus)

Getting very hard to trust anyone.

DAD:

I finally got my motor, it was the other poor buyer that didn't get the radio.

That was quite an experience, he sure took his time shipping!

Now here I go again!!

I did a white pages search for Mike Setzer in Hickory, N.C. There was no listing of anyone by that name in Hickory. There were several in the surrounding area...I can email you a copy of the search if you are interested.

Sure send it to me.

I did some checking too Matt, the Noth Carolina West Hickory Aero Modelers Club (WRAMS)

the Vice President just happens to be Shea SETZER (relative?) or same guy just different first name?

Maybe someone in that Club could check this out for us, or if MIKE SETZER is in that Club have a talk with him to make things RIGHT!!

Just found out Mike, Shea, same GUY!!
