What drives a 35+ year old Network Engineer with a family to rip off a 22 year old getting though college scrounging up money to fix up his truck?

I was ripped off by the active member 'rlith' on this board. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM HIM!

I attempted to purchase a 2nd gen center console from him in July. I paid $85 through PayPal...

Payment Sent (ID #70F62332S8818430U)

Name:
E Lithgow (The recipient of this payment is Verified)
Email:
[email protected]

Total Amount:
-$85.00 USD

Date:
Jul. 13, 2003

Subject:
Nyte's payment for center console...
Note:
Let me know when you ship it and if you have a tracking number. Package it carefully! -Nyte

Funding Type:
PayPal Funds
Funding Source:
$85.00 USD - PayPal Account


When I finally realized I wasn't going to get my center console I requested my money back from him and when that was ignored I put in a PayPal complaint. It was all too late...

PayPal's finest work.

So to this day I send rlith a payment reminder to get my money back at least once a week along with private messages and emails... all ignored... never a response. I gave him several chances to refund my money and now I just want to make sure no one gets ripped off by him again.

A$$hole.

Check Ebay.... IF he is a buyer on ebay look up his history. Find out if he bought anything from anybody and see if they will give you his contact info... Tell them he ripped you off, most sellers are willing to help people. You can look up his ebay user account with just his Email...

ill give my input. on another board im on, the admin recently banned a member who ripped someone off. he didnt just do it b/c someone said they were ripped off, he actually investigated it a bit and concluded it was indeed a scam(the member was a well known regular too). i think mods and admins should consider this. there is no reason to have scammers on a respected board.
Here is the thread that I found out he was selling the console on...

Date of posting the console for sale ... 07-03-2003

Date of PayPal transaction... 07-13-2003

Please do!

People are telling me and posting that he is responding to their PMs and emails about this but he is still ignoring all of mine.

I've talked to the guy a few times, didn't seem the type to do this... I'll remind him next time I talk to him, seeing as you're a local to me.
