Avarice - I've been a member since 1992 on dswartz unofficial legend forum (old school), Legend forum (pre-andrew), Legend forum (post-kenny), Darran's acuralegend.com forum and now the new acura-legend forum. I've been posting longer then you have your drivers license....another words I'll not going anywhere.

Hey guys. I ve been periodically reading your forum, and I felt like sharing this experience I had with ebay and basically expose the guy that scammed me, and even ask for some help from you guys. A few days ago, I won an auction on ebay for a set of 19 inch wheels and tires. As you can tell by the name I am from Greece, asked the seller to ship to a freight company I know in NY. I made the payment via western union, and all correspondence with the seller was good, courteous and everything. But when he collected the money, he cancelled his email, and the tel he has on ebay records is wrong (if only I had checked this before...!) In any case, I am thinking that if he did it once, he might do it again, so consider this a warning to all of you out there, there is a bogus wheel seller. I do have his name, it is S. Almasri, and he lives in Charlotte NC. If any of you out there live around that area, and know of any BIG people I can hire for *cough* collectors (!! hehehe) pls contact me via email or on this board :-D, I do have his address too (he needed the real data to collect the western union!) His telephone number is unlisted, but am trying to get some info on that issue. As you realize by the "going rate" this is a scam of about $1450 bucks...so any help will be appreciated...

THIS IS WHY IM REACHING OUT FOR HELP!!! Any suggestions on how to buy something from someone out of state via email/telephone?

I contacted the seller and he was willing to scan & email me his drivers license upon request. He also offered to send the wheels via UPS C.O.D at my cost. All in all he seems like a stand up guy. Hopefully, this senario can benefit others buying expensive stuff off the net.

Thank you for the offers, you guys are the best!!!!

let me know if you found anyone yet to go check it out. Darrith used to keep list of houston members for a meet last summer, but that never panned out. We should all meet up at UH's parking lot by the stadium or something.
