    Silviabuilder aka Lucas Adkins, Fraud, Still no refund almst 1 year...

    Guys!...

    This has gone way to far...

    I purchased a set of Seats from him in November of 02'.....

    I recieved them...in August of '03 after waiting for that long....

    The seats came in missing a passenger side seat....

    I've trying to get a refund from this kid for almost a year now!!....

    He has been selling items on here for a while now and still he says he has no money.....

    He even said he filed a complaint with UPS....and that they declined it.....when I talked to them....they told me....they issued him a refund.....

    So he made 500 off me for the seats, never recieved the entire item I paid and waited for and now.....He made another 500 off me from UPS......which is MY REFUND.....

    Something has to be done about this.....

    Any ideas......

    PS. He stopped replying to me weeks ago.....lil Twirp......

    Can someone park this.....

    hopefully the guy who got ripped off called the cops and the fbi. don't most people call the cops when someone has taken money from them?

    does he have your money?
    did you get everything you paid for?

    sounds like fraud (among other things) to me. now your biggest problem is that this has dragged on for so long. call the cops. if he's out of state, call the fbi too. if anything (money, parts, correspondence) was sent by US mail, contact the fraud division of the postal service.

    i was frauded for $480 over ebay. the guy was in canada. that fool thought that i wouldnt be able to find out who he was or where he lived(all i had was his name and a fake address). but they say you can find ANYTHING over the internet with enough patience. well with all the info i had gathered i called several gov't agencies to report the fraud-fbi,a few online fraud agencies, and his local police department. And guess what, about 3 weeks later, i get an email back from the his local canadian PD, they had him in custody and wanted me to send him all the emails i had with him and anything else they could use to prosecute him. apparently, he had been frauding alot of other people, but i was the only one who was able to provide enough info to fine and arrest him. felt really good finding out he got arressted. and as far as i know, he's spending a couple of years in sale-sucker. i would try perhaps reporting it to the fbi, your local police dept, and his local police dept. im sure all those agencies have some kind of internet/technology fraud department or they can refer you to one. although my only concern with that is, that its been so long since the incident has happened, not sure what they authorities might say. or just visit his house, hehehe

    I definately think you can call the cops. Call them up ask for an e-mail address and a USPS address e-mail/ mail them the info you have. It is a crime in this country to take money from people using deceptive practices.

    quit wasting time and call the cops. for all the time you have spent posting on this you could have filed a report by now. and frankly, it's your last shot at getting your money back.

    mirakle- you say "i've been defrauded," not "i've been frauded." just a tip.

    Interstate commerce is a federal offense- contact the FBI. Also, if you know the city where he lives, get in touch with the local police department there. They can hunt him down for you.

    Did you pay via credit card? I do this as a safety net for all online transactions; that way if someone attempts to defraud me I can deny payment and let the CC company's lawyers go into battle.

    Lucas Adkins was formerly posting as Bond James Bond wasn't he?

    I really wish the administrators of this site would block these repeat scammers from posting items for sale here. Can't they compare IPs to check if its the same as the prior one?
