itscard0lan scammed us!

Looks like we have a scammer among us. itscard0lan has taken over $500 from myself and @Milolotus for parts that were never shipped. No contact other than an occasional 'I'll ship it on saturday'

See thread here: https://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f95...ud-kit-468118/

Guy is still active and checking in here - he just logged in 3 days ago.


Anyone know Ricardo Myrie from Hempstead NY, 646-38seven-7331 [email protected]



For the mods, he has already posted his contact information publicly on the LotusTalk form. I can direct you to these posts.

I was able to obtain his address and a couple other telephone numbers for him through public data aggregators. I'm calling those numbers to put some pressure at best, but I'm not expecting much.

I'll place a dispute through PayPal but I'm sure that won't do much.

Thanks for the info. I did not send the funds as a gift so at least I'll receive my funds back.

How long has it been? seems odd that he would put his name, address and phone number out there and then scam someone.
Hopefully you can get this worked out, I had thought about getting those lowering cups myself

I paid him on April 28th. Not expecting Amazon levels of shipping, but approaching a month is too long. I agree, not the smartest if the intent is to scam. But who knows and life conditions change.



UPDATE. I did get an email from him an hour ago saying he unexpectedly went out of town and will ship them tomorrow. I guess we will see.

User has been banned from the board for one week.

Please Post any follows up here. That is, let us know if you hear from him, or he issues refunds, or anything like that.

PM me if anyone needs his email, since I don't think he will be able to PM, while he's on "vacation".

He hasn't responded to the PayPal dispute either, since PayPal gives the seller 30 days to make it right before issuing the refund.

Can't be but one yellow Evora with louvered back window running around in Hempstead. Would be a real shame if something happened to it.

Thanks, I sent him an email with a link to this thread. We'll see if that does anything

You going to make him an offer he can't refuse?

Drives a Prius (clearly knows nothing about cars).

Just going to point out that the crimes being suggested in this thread are more serious than the crimes that started the thread.

And to be clear, you are publicly announcing you're going to commit a crime.

This is why you should go to the police, provide the info / file a report, so nobody does anything stupid.
