Who for about a year has given me excuse after excuse and has yet to send my parts, I lost all hope in ever seeing them so all I have left is to shame the man and warn other's.

Just wondering how many members got taken.

That's just plain inexcusable and downright wrong. I try to buy out of forums and not on Craigslist or other classified outfits just because there is a sense of decorum and a trustworthy feeling, but when things like this happens, it's just wrong.
The seller needs to be banned. My .02 cents.

Not for long looks like he is trying to skip out and run away from law for not sending my parts or returning my money maybe when he sells his house for $895,000 he will have some cash to send my way. Whoever said crime doesn't pay was wrong. For what it's worth I filed a police report with local police department.

I had a similar problem on a race forum. I suggest posting ads on his local craigslist. I got my money back within two days that way. Seems these guys are too busy looking cool to take care of their business. Or, maybe that's how they get everything they have, by ripping people off. SHAME ON HIM!!! I bet he will be finding you to give you your money when people start calling him and telling him his business in on craigslist.

I attempted to contact him by the last cell phone number we have and that
number has been changed. You should contact your local police and advised
them of this situation.

I don't know what my local police depart can do?

I had a similar situation with a(ex) member here,your local police is where you should file the report and they will send it to where ever his address is,that is the way to proceed.
You also can Google internet crime and report it there.

I nominate Danberg1, I sent him a W126 fuel distributor and never got paid. He said he did not have paypal and mailed a money order. He gave me some BS that his wife copied the address wrong and would remail it, then never heard from him again. Such low life moochs on the boards.
