Scammer!! Beware of Joe aka "j824"
 
Well,
I guess that we learn from our mistakes, but I didn't think that I would get ripped off from someone on this board. He sold me a deck that he said he had in his mom's car, and only took it out because she didn't know how to use it...*no-no* But really the deck wasn't working properly. I should have known when he said he had no receipt and got it from his buddy's shop. I hope that people on this board read this before dealing with him if he ever posts on here... Really sucks after spending the money on the deck and to get the deck installed professionally and then finding out I have a radio that cuts out every few minutes. Just be warned, I guess I should watch for these guys with few posts, and selling stuff. Can't trust anyone anymore. *uzi* Now I am out money and a deck in my car!!! Sometimes the money that you think you save buying it used is not worth saving as it costs you more in the long run!

What a piece of shit. Sorry to hear pal. Listen I feel for ya and sorry you had to deal with a prick piece of shit like that so maybe I can help. Now I know this isnt your first choice and by far its not the best deck in the world but I know it works. I will give it to. Free of charge. Just so at least you have music and when you find what your looking you can pop in your new one. Let me know here is what it looks like

So wait, have you tried to contact this guy?

Eurostyle 02-02-2008 01:31 AM

^^^Yes, this is the big question!? Did he not want to give you $$$ back? whats the full story...We really need to know all details before we can tell anything...From what we know so far, it could have been installed by some kid at Best Buy, causing the problem (or something along those lines)...

A.K.A. Blackout 02-02-2008 11:10 AM

I have contacted him a few times telling him that the deck was not working, and he just kept telling me that he would get back to me, but never did. As for the install, I had a friend of mine do it at best buy as he installed the same deck in my BMW and it is a faulty deck. Unfortunately I met this guy by my work downtown, so the only info I have is his cell and first name. (yeah kinda shadey). As for you George, you are a great guy!... I appreciate your offer a, but I think I have a work around for now. I took a older deck that I had given to my dad and put it in the car for now. I am going to try and see if I can get this deck fixed as I have another friend that works at an audio shop. If this was my BMW... I would have been really pissed off as I don't like hardly anyone touching the car as it is...

Post his first name and cell number .. maybe someone can get his address for you.

hypno_nls1 02-02-2008 11:14 AM

yo you gotta find this guy and smash him, cant let a man rip you off like that. Teach him a lesson so he dont try to play around like that again.

A.K.A. Blackout 02-02-2008 11:22 AM

As for posting his name and number... I honestly don't want anyone to go after him... you never know these guys and what issues will happen after if i do that. I would love to meet up with and tell him what I really think of crap like this, but for now I will see what I can do to get it fixed. As well, i will never get my money back from getting the deck install...

Who knows buddy, talk to him first.

Best Buy installers do nothing but hack jobs, its very well possible the installer messed up the radio.

A.K.A. Blackout 02-02-2008 01:47 PM

^^^ Umm... this one guy is a friend of mine that has been doing it for a while, and I am pretty positive that it wasn't him that killed the deck. I will keep everyone posted, as I have already spoken to himon Thursday and I have pm's multiple times with no response.

A.K.A. Blackout 02-03-2008 09:38 AM

Well it has been 4 days since you said you would get back to me... the deck is in my car, and yes I have the same deck in my BMW and it is in storage. That is great that you are checking with your friend, but should that really be my issue. Hard to believe that the installer did it as it is just the radio that is not working...
