Jay,
I just sent this to Chuck and SGRIM as I was called out publicly as having two name which is BS. I also asked for help from everyone when Mike screwed me and received none.

Sent to: Chuck Leeper & SGRIM

Chuck

I asked for your help and the other mods on this site last year when Mike screwed me. You told me to PM Mike which I can post those PM attempts where he said what’s wrong with the box and I’ll give you a refund for the piece he didn’t send. I resold the AC box he sent me for a loss and waited for the refund he promised for the pillar and moved on

I Never ever brought this public and also nothing ever happened to make it right. I posted what happen to me the other day when I saw two other guys having the same issue. One seems to be a David Staines

Now you accused me of having two user names so I ask why am I being associated with David Staines publicly. Looking that name up he has posted on Mike seller post, NOT Me

As a admin / Owner I’m sure you have access to user names, email addresses and IP address to prove David Staines posts did not come from my IP,

Please revise you statement on my review page as David Staines is not me. Please look at my PMs on June 4th when I asked David Staines what happened with Mike and giving him my experience getting screwed by Mike.

Thanks a lot
The dual name deal was not initiated by me.
I've deleted the post.

I can also vouch for having a very positive transaction with Mike recently.
Remember, you can't please everyone, all of the time.

I appreciate the support on Mike's character but lets let the two of them work it out.

I’m sure Mike has had a lot of great transactions mine wasn’t. I received a cracked AC / Heater box not the pictured box and I didn’t receive a the drivers pillar plastic and was promised a refund for it.

I get it things happen but I Never received the refund Mike said he was sending and he throws FUs around here like he is King Shit.
Like I said I had moved on and I won’t be sending any PMs to Mike so if Shane doesn’t see fit to do anything it will stay as is and the Scammer wins.

I’m sure the guys standing up for Mike would saying differently if they had several hundred dollars stolen from them.

Jay, How can this be worked out privately when one side says FU a/hole all the time. I also had great experiences with Mike, but there was that time when he suffered his tragedies where I didn’t hear from him for weeks. Only after following up with PM’s many, many times, did I hear back & even after that it took a while to get the things I had already paid for. No one wants to get shafted. I know several have from the “true scammers” who have actually screwed people on the site. I’m not saying Mike is in anyway like that. But someone needs to intervene. It does seem as if Mike does say he will pay these two guys off in the PM’s they submitted here. I defended Mike in the past to someone who in fact was blaming him for something that didn’t seem to happen. But these guys have evidence in the PM’s they posted. And why be rude to newer members who are interested in these cars. Parts are much harder to find these days. We are all looking to do the same thing. Sometimes we have to get over our pride & do the right thing.

Mike,

I've said it before, and I'm on your side here.

However, In these two cases, the path of least resistance behooves you to maintain your great standing in the community.

This is all over, what, $400 in total?

Fix it Mike. Just fucking fix it. These guys WILL NOT relent. They've proven it. Doesn't matter if they are telling the absolute truth, are wrong, mistaken, ill informed and/or lying.

No one will think less of you, principles be damned. This crap needs to get finished. These guys are going to continually chase you relentlessly here. They have ABSOLUTELY nothing to loose, and you have a sterling reputation to uphold.

Do you REALLY need to die on this hill? I understand your position, but .........

Oh, and I DISAGREE with these two needle dicks continuous bitching/whining/sniveling.

They can say they tried to fix it privately all day long. Something tells me they took the wrong initial approach.

So here we are.

WAIT! Just how old is he :unsure:

While I'm here I'm just a random sporadic posting Buick guy, bought from Mike about 5 times and received some really nice stuff as described, timely with no BS. He's been selling alot lately, maybe he got overwhelmed? It's been nice that he's been here so long offering us some top notch parts for sale but I'd be bitching too if I was on the wrong end of a "screeching seagull" of a deal so idk. I tend to lean towards something Grumpy said here years ago if u put something up for sale it oughta be in a box ready to ship beforehand.

It's unfortunate but I do like any thread where TurboTGuy drops the thesaurus on our dumb asses :D

Not trying to be ugly, they may not have went about the way we would have but we ALL NEED TO LOOK AT THE BOTTOM LINE...

IF what I am reading right Mike owes these two guys a refund. AM I WRONG? I like Mike as much as anyone but he has been acting like a vendor here for long as I can remember. If people have proof of payment for products they didn't receive that is a problem. Like Jay said, we MUCH RATHER you guys work it out. We don't want to have to get involved... Chuck works his butt off to keep things rolling smoothly, looks to me both sides are not following what he asked. So we are here, MIKE post whatever proof you have that you have. You said I don't know the whole story so put it out for all to see, LET'S END THIS NOW or I will......

Chuck & Shane have my Private PMs from last year and recently asking for direction and Mike’s refund PM again from last year and the PayPal dispute I tried. I think a year is probably enough time to try to work a dispute out with no response before posting here?

I paid a little over $324 ($180 + shipping) for cracked AC Box and no pillar plastic (not the box in his post) after Mike FU’d me I painted and advertised the box correctly and resold it for about half what I paid.

I’ve never asked for the difference I asked about the refund for a the part or the part itself I didn’t receive, apparently per Mike thats worth $25 as he said he would be refunding that amount. I Posted here when I saw two others members getting the same treatment I received.
I wish I hadn’t all the bitching isn’t worth the Money.

I’m not a new guy I’ve had several GNs and always one in the garage since 89 now rebuilding one from storage.
Mike was a weird welcome back to the community.

I dont understand why you guys think David Staines is GN86N. They dont share any IP addresses. If David Staines is anybody on this board and not a real person, he's T- Type Tim. They do share IPs.

I'm not here to bash on anyone, a lot of people has had good purchases by Mike, but my advise to NEVER do Friends & Family, because even if everything's legit, and the post man messes up, you order blue and get red, there's no guarantee what so ever. Not to mention you have to pay a fee to send to Friends & Family. To send you pay 1.5% + .49 cents, if you do as purchase, you pay no fee's, but the seller looses 2.8% + .49 cents. So to send $450 I'll pay $457.19 , now if he wants me to pay the fee's I'll pay $463.54, sooooo I'll pay $6.35 more to insure I'm getting what I paid for. Unless you want to fight the seller for the fee's, which is against PayPal rules and regulations to charge more than advertised to cover fee's, or to ask for fee's to be paid by the buyer.

It appears the other party doesnt want to participate here. That speaks volumes.

Im going to wait until Monday and see if this is resolved. Ill start handing out vacations then.

Another note, Ive been contacted by two other members with stories that pretty much sound the same.

Please dont use friends and family to send money. Its not worth it and causes these kinds of issues.

I think Im going to make that a rule to sell here. Its the only shred of recourse sellers have.

I reached out to Mike last night in a final attempt to end this. I only asked for money he said he would refund for the part not received. No response yet but I’ll post here if there is.

I agree, DON'T send Friends & Family...It's the same as sending cash in the mail, the only difference is , you have to pay an extra fee to send it.
