Yet another scammer alert!

Hey guys, posting on behalf of a friend. Spoilered for length.

If anyone knows him (he goes by TypeR on BC Rotary and West Coast Rotary) please pm me.

Thanks for any help!

Spoiler!

Well, standard operating procedure for calling out scammers on RS appears to be:

1. Post Full Name
2. Post contact phone number / address
3. Post picture of individual
4. Post RS username (if applicable)

From then on, RS patrol will constantly monitor the thread waiting for said scammer to appear in the thread and the screenshot it. Then have the scammer apologize and tell us all how the issue has been resolved.

Buyer beware, you gotta check thoroughly when you buy used parts really. I would buy used exhausts, wheels, never coils because you can't check it internally.

This. Obviously the guy who sold the coils is a massive shitbag, but your friend WAS given the chance to look them over before agreeing to buy... personally I would only buy things like coils from people I know, having seen them personally on their car (if used) first. It sucks but "caveat emptor" as they say, I once bought a TRD LSD for my Corolla that stopped locking after less than 5000km of light-moderate driving. It sucked, but it was also my fault for taking the seller on his word and not testing the breakaway points with a torque wrench, which is a proven method I would have discovered had I done my due diligence. Moral of the story is never buy used parts unless you've seen/used them on the seller's car or it is something "inspectable" for wear and such. Or inspect the shit out of them before you buy lol.

Yeah I don't know how I feel about this either.

It's one thing to buy a stolen/blacklisted phone, but I feel it's another to just having bought a lemon off of CL (or whatever listing site that was used).

Sure I feel for the OP's friend, it must stuck, but I feel equally annoyed at people who think buying at CL is like buying from a retail store; That the expectation is that you're getting brand new goods but for a second hand price; with an expectation of a return policy as well?

Anyways, I feel for the OP but CL and other listing sites have always been buyer beware. As long as it's not stolen goods (like the blacklisted phone), there's really nothing illegal with this particular transaction in question IMO other than it being a moral issue.

Just posting so that people don't deal with this guy in the future, that's all

Also at least I learned something, don't buy coils off craigslist Btw, friend says lesson learned. He's on our rotary club page and he seemed like a decent guy. He did check the coils for damage but you can't see anything internally (like was previously stated).
