R/TDurango02 made the following purchases from me and promised to pay as soon as he could, here's the story on why to avoid him..
Stillen bumper cover-$200 (later sold on the forums for 250 apparently?, yet he has no money to reimburse me)
R/T rims- $500 (later sold on forums and advertised on craigslist, never got paid)
Fastman tb-$200 (presumably still on the vehicle, never got paid)...
Sale was made on November 16, 2008..It is now July 1st, no contact in nearly two months despite repeated attempts, now no phone line apparently?
This should be a lesson to everyone not to trust anyone you don't know.. Here are some pm's from him:
shortly after purchase not sure exact date-

Thanks for being understanding
I did my research and as I said, he sold two of these items on this very site after "purchasing" them and although he received payment for them, was unable to pay me for the initial purchase..
So here I am, almost 8 months later and still have not gotten a dollar from him..
For anyone who is wondering about why I didnt wait to get payment first, here's the story:
Dont know if any of you remember me having problems with my r/t durango for months, but eventually I gave up and traded it in for the ram I now have. Before I brought it to the dealer I stripped it took all my mods off (you know how that goes) and sold almost all of it right here on the parts for sale forum. Here was my issue- the local dodge dealer only gave me the weekend to get everything out and I didnt have replacement wheels to put on in order to be able to sell the r/t rims, so the buyer of the rims needed to trade me their stockers as part of the deal. Being that I had such a short time period and not many people would be able to drive that weekend to do the swap, I decided to take this deal where he would pay me ASAP and swap me his wheels. I figured it was better than nothing because had I not taken it, Id have to return the truck with the 20" r/ts on it and gotten nothing for them so I decided it was worth the wait for the cash. When R/Tdurango02 came to my house to swap the wheels, he decided he'd take the stillen bumper and fastman tb I had for sale as well, and again, I figured it was easier than shipping it and finding another buyer. I was told Id be paid by Feb the latest and I had Roy (if that's even his name) sign a contract with me with the totals on it and the date of purchase etc. Above you see the pms I received from him from Nov till now and he continues to push back payment until he essentially disappeared from the site...Like I said, his phone number is now canceled, he doesn't respond to pm's, hasnt posted on the forums, and still owes me $900...
