Funny. I thought I recognized this guy. He came onto the 1800 Group on Yahoo a couple of years ago, like a stormtrooper. His name on the list was iamtheonlyone. He ticked off a whole lot of people and was arguing and promising all kinds of fancy mods for the 1800 that he was going to manufacture, like a custom front crossmember. The guy was a complete troll. I had never seen such a bunch of verbal animosity on that site before he showed up. He was finally persuaded to leave. I wondered what had had happened to him.

It wasn't "iamtheonlyone" it was "iamtheonlyrealone."

One wonders: real one what?

Keep it civil, on topic, no talk about other sellers. USE PMs for that and start a new thread.

Emailed a few different people with the hope of reaching someone who actually reads it and sees what's going on. Sent links and all the other info I can find.

I so wished this guy was not a scammer. My amazon could really use some of his stuff eventually.

There's a huge profit margin when the cost of goods sold = $0.

I've learned that the BBB doesn't really hold much sway as it used to.

To OP--if you are serious about taking legal action against this guy (which I assume you are, if you've been consulting with an attorney), keep in mind that this latest promise by Robert to pay you may be an attempt to string you along until you are outside the statute of limitations. Are you planning to sue him in Oklahoma or in your home state? Statutes of limitations vary from state to state and between different claims. My recollection is that this guy has been ripping people off for a long time--some of the earliest victims may need to move quickly on this if it is not too late already.

Wow. Thanks for the warning. There should be a thread which lists people to avoid buying from because they're scammers.... Like a Black List or something...

And comment posted on bangshift article.

Contacted the writer of the Bangshift article, there's nothing he can really do at this point. He appreciated the info, but has no control or feedback on the situation.
