Thumbs down Moron Deadbeat Sellers-This Time It's jfrankmotors

How about this one.....I need a lower dash for my '70 280S. Found one in Indiana a couple of weeks back on the Ebay classifieds. $80 with no shipping posted. Four or more emails and a couple of phone calls we agreed on the listed price plus $40 to cover the shipping. Said he would send a Paypal invoice to finish the transaction. Nothing ever came. Another phone call, left message, no response. Yesterday, 3/12, I see the same dash from the same seller on Ebay auction site for $150 plus $25 something for shipping. Of course I contacted him about our original agreement and he thanked me for 'my offer' and said it was against Ebay policy to conduct a sale outside blah blah blah. I sent an email reminding him of our original agreement and he said he might sell it for a discount if it didn't sell in the next 90 days......WTF?! So, if you have an opportunity to deal with jfrankmotors in Indianapolis, please think twice as the guy is just not a straight shooter.
Rant Over, Thank You for Listening

Sadly, a person's word is of little value these days. I am always surprised when a transaction is smooth, not when it's bad. I've come to expect someone will try and screw me over.

Sucks, but at least you were not out of any money in this case.

I went to check out his website to see if it was this guy I had heard was notoriously bad in Indy... it wasn't the same guy, but the website did try to install a virus on my computer.
