For what it's worth....Don't sell to Jeff aka FSTRNHM (close enough) on the site. Jeff has owed me money for a big brake kit a sold him over a year ago. He moved, stayed off the site, yada yada yada. I don't go on the site much these days but jumped on for old time sake and......what do you know, but Jeff has posted a question on some Koni yellows he bought. I contacted Jeff through the site and he assured me he is "very sorry, would never stiff me, I'm a good guy, blah blah blah" Well it's a month later and Jeff hasn't sent a dime and is again no longer on the site. If you read this Jeff, I suggest you stop buying new parts for your car until you pay for the parts you already have from people you made a commitment to. If you are selling stuff through the site I suggest not dealing with Jeff or get cach in hand before you send out your parts. I was dumb enough to trust a buyer to send the money at the same time I sent out the parts.

That sucks. Come on, Jeff. Pay the man. If you have money to buy other stuff, you shouldn't be stiffing members on the board. That's called stealing and wouldn't look good on your record.

I'll move the thread to the appropriate section.

I believe this might be the first post of it's type since I joined almost 7 years ago. Ditto what Dave said - please pay the man. I thought this was a friendly place and that ain't friendly. Didn't Jeff move to Cali?

Unintentionally shirking your financial obligations makes you a deadbeat. Purposefully bailing on those same obligations makes you a thief. I'm kind of putting FSTRNHM(Jeff) in the latter category.

To be fair though, there really isn't a valid excuse for this. First off, you should never agree to buy something from a fellow member without having the ability and/or intention to pay. Secondly, if misfortune should befall you and you can't pay... you put the shit back in the f*cking box and send it back.

Thankfully, Jim is in a financial situation where he can afford to shrug the whole matter off. But what if Jim had been selling the BBK due to financial hardship of his own? It would take an already unfunny situation to a whole new level.

Sometimes being a man means swallowing that bitter pill known as pride. Either pay the man or return his goods.

UPDATE: No word or money from Jeff. He will bail on the site for months laying low until he thinks the storm has blown over. I will never see a dime.......My Z is up for sale, I bought a factory five Cobra, so I will most likely spend even less time on the Z sites than usual. If Jeff pop up on here again....tell him I said Hi....and he still owes me money. Z!o:
