Unhappy Scam

I sold an original 32 Ford hood to Robert Powers, Camarostocker@yahoo.com. I advertised as needing work on hood tops, sides are excellent. He received and said not happy. I said send back, he did not and put in a claim with credit card and PayPal . 4 months later they decide in his favor. I am out my $550 and my hood!!
Wow, what a scam to get free parts.
when he told me tops were no good I offered to send him half his money back or return hood for full refund. I will post the texts, and now he tells me to f.... off. Hood was returned!

Yes make some noise! and appeal the decision! Call the sheriff in his town. Certainly you have paperwork confirming your claim.

You should definitely get your parts back.
I have heard of this type of scam being used by slime balls.
PayPal and other credit card companies should change their
policy and make the scammer return the part, before giving
the money back to them...

This is one reason that I like a check or money order for payment. I can always wait until a check clears before shipping the part.

Had the same thing happen to me 5 or 6 years ago. Guy got a full refund and kept all the parts. Same deal, paypal. Except i got charged for the return postage and recieved a empty box.

I keep a eye out for this guy all the time because he burned another guy for some model T parts at the same time

And i also offered a full refund , just return me the parts....


karma will get them, but in the mean time how many more people will be victims till they get caught

He can change his name, email address but usually not his mailing address. Please tell us the address you sent the hood to. Might help keep him from burning someone else.

I would rant and rave at EBAY/PayPal and the buyer. If no satisfaction, I would take a quick vacation to the address the hood was delivered to and talk face to face. Hopefully without violence.

I am aware of a similar experience , strangely enough someone called the persons utility company and ordered the electric to be disconnected and the water to be finalized their gas to be turned off, the mail was re-routed to Japan. the funds were never recovered and the parts were not returned but in the winter time it was a bad thing to happen , must be what they call karma ?

What amazed me is some clerk from a credit card company decides in his favor “not as represented “ PayPal and I both emailed him to send it back! No answer! Enjoy your new hood! The price was right ��

Have you called this Robert Powers guy (479 644-719) and had a talk? What is his attitude in this matter?
