Scam Alert! Lux Wheels in Florida

Watch out for these guys, took my money on a set of Boxster mats.
They now appear to be accumulating a bunch of negative FB.

Beware!

Almost all great feedback and then within the last month, several people are not getting responses? Too weird. One person mentioned that the guy said he couldn't finish the sale because he got sick.

I'd say something happened to this guy that's out of his control that's keeping him from completing his transactions based on the pattern.

Doesn't make it any better for those who bought from him, but at least it doesn't appear to be a malicious scam.

If I remember correctly RandallNeighbour had a post about the guy where it had taken him some time to get his lights and turns out the guy had cancer, maybe he is not doing too well at the moment.

My brother in law would sell Harley's and Harley parts on E-bay. Well, he sold a bike and the guy put a nice down payment on a bike. My brother in law died when I say died I mean without warning fell over with a massive heart attack. My nephew tried everything to get on his dads e-bay to try to get ahold of the guy that left a deposit. Im pretty sure they would not grant him any access but I never followed up so I cant be sure. My point is the could have died or be in the hospital.

Have u contacted EBAY or PAYPAL to ask what is going on, they must have an emergency plan for situations like this.
Good luck and let us know what happens.

After I found the phone was disconnected, I filed a claim with pay-pal. What good that'll do, who knows!

One of the buyer said "Seller got sick. Couldn't finish the sale. Refund obtained. Neutral rating."

Probably something happens to him.

Given his very positive history, then a couple people saying he got sick and DID give a refund, and then a series of no responses, I would think the guy may be very ill or dead. All these people posting on Ebay about getting ripped off are pathetic, or maybe they did not read the history.

Paypal is pretty good about refunding your money and if not just contact your credit card company and they will do it for sure.

I had the same thing happen to me a few times on eBay where I sent the money and never received the item, contacted Paypal and they refunded my account in a few days, the 2nd time was more money and Paypal seem to drag their feet on that one and then I called my credit card company and cleared it up quite quickly.
Oh and if the guy is in the hospital or dead and nobody around to pay his bills, the nice people at the phone company will not blink and eye before cutting off the phone service.
But then again could be a . . . . scam

Sorry to hijack the thread, but if they're your carriage doors in the background of the Ducati pic, I'd like to see a picture of them, Doc. That's project number 1 for me, as soon as the weather breaks.
