    Sourcer: BAD Trader!!!

    I cannot post this in the above section so I'm posting here. I hooked this guy up beyond belief and the POS vanished. He took my AMD A64 3400+, Shuttle AN50R and 1GB OCZ PC4200. Please avoid at all costs, its been well over two months and I have heard nothing. Save yourself from this guy. We did the sale at Driverheaven.net but I thought I should warn everyone since he is a member here also.

    Well, I thought the guy was great. We had many chats on MSN for months and he was a regular at DH. He told me of how badly he needed a PC so I did my best to help out. I sent him one week old parts which at the time were worth over $850 and I told him he can have it all for only $450. Not only that but I told him he only had to pay me $50 a week. Now I'm not sure about you guys but that is one hell of a deal that no one will ever return to me in a million years. He made one payment 3 weeks later and then vanished without a trace. I've sent multiple emails to all his adresses but no reply. Now there is no question that if the guy hasn't passed away he's definitely avoiding me. I'm not sure what I can do at this point. I do know he lives at indiana and theres another guy at DH that sold him a case and is in the same boat as me. I'll take any tips on how to deal with this but I fear the worst.
    Live and learn I guess
    Thanks

    @#$Dammit. Something like this should never happen to people like Nick. It's shitty because people build all this trust and want to continue having this great attitude and then get trolled for it. Man..

    Doubt that you'd want to pay more into this (legal fees, pursuing Small Claims Court, etc)...
    Off the top of my head, that would involve running down ISPs and IP addresses and the like. If you could at least get a full name (and/or spouse/gf's name, you could try to track him through the phone book, then get a reverse directory for a physical address, that sort of thing.

    I agree that it is unlikely you'll ever see the rest of the money, but if you were to post the details on as many forums with trade pages, and/or ask the moderators for their help, I'm pretty sure you could, at the very least, hamper his efforts to swindle others out of their money and/or hardware in the future.

    My sympathy for your losses, best wishes for the future of your quest, and appreciation for sharing this with us all so we can better protect ourselves in the future.
