I sent this guy $57can for those aurora plug wires($40). he confirms delivery of my m.o. then starts making excuses for not sending them out right away, first he lost my addy, then he lost the wires(he said he found them), now he is just ignoring me on msn.

Any lower mainland guys wanna help me with this issue or am i gonna have to drive all the way out there to get my products. any help is apreciated.
thanks, Jesse

I had problems with him as well. He ordered stuff from a group buy I was doing and said he would send me the money. No money ever came. When the parts were ready to ship, he said he would ship the money. Again nothing came. Then he came up with reasons as to why he could not buy the parts right now.

Not a good experience as well.

I just sent him a $200 MO for some parts. Too bad this got posted 2 days after I sent him the MO.

IF you have the money order copy you can cancel it if it hasn't been cashed yet.

Hey listen, Im not scamming anyone. Yes i have recieved money from

thedad Wing 209$
gmjam1 wires 57$
midway scoop 50$

Iam sincerely sorry i have not been able to make estimated dates to shipping these parts out.
I've been tied up unfortunatley you may see this as an excuse but say and do what you must.
1.i've been needing to find a job asap along with a car, handle parts on my car, and any and everything i wish to not discuss that has delayed my transactions with you. If you are unhappy i'll send 10$back of the purchased price that you sent to me. The wing/wires/scoop are all ready to go. I tried my best to get them all ready said and done for a one time thing because i sold my car. Transportation is an issue and time to find time to get these products out to you.

As For LTLSU I told you i could have paid for the springs, but it would take a few weeks to gather the money to do so, as for the toe bars as well which i told you i would probably need an additional month to collect money to purchase these parts. Unfortunately i decided to not go ahead and repair the rust and siezed motor on my sprint, i'am not mechanically inclined, but would have wished that i would have been able to complete the project in my car. Im sorry if i have set you back some, im sure you will find a buyer, but that is no excuse as you fronted the money.

Im only human i make mistakes and i try my best to correct them when i can. On this note i dont appreciate having a thread produced to tell others Im a Scam/Fraudulant Seller. I've made good relations on this site and dont want it to gotto waste because someone needs to vent.
All shipping dates dont always go as planned. THERE ARE DELAYS!

PS: i did not lose the wires, i said i misplaced them, I told you i was doing renovations, and things were getting moved around. So please do not make claims that are not true.

I hope this does not effect the relations with other buyer/sellers. But I guess the damage has already been done unfortunately.

So i hope there aren't any hard feelings.

Sincerely Mike aka Schmikel (butt pudding)

Your right, you'll have to gotto your bank and give a reason as to why your canceling it, it can take up to 1-2weeks, depending on how quick they are.

Hey guys be a little patient with him.

He's workin his butt off, and tryin to strip the only set of wheels he had for your parts. he's not too mechanically inclined by his own admission but learnin.

I just msn'd him an asked him when he is goin to ship the parts he sold u guys. he told me he would hit the post office tomorrow. i will be seeing him on Sunday for some stuff i wanted.
and will see if i can help him with any shipments.

He's not a flake just tryin to survive with work an no car to drive.

Knuckles

OK, this looks Promising. Like Dad said, Feedback and updates are key, even if it is a Was busy today, did not get your part off would be a big help in the future to avoid these kinds of situations.. I feel much better now that I know the whole Picture.

gmjam1, how much time did you give him? Sometimes you jus can send stuff out immediately. I didn't jump on anybody's back here for takin a lil time with my packages. You just need to have a bit of patience.

1 and a half weeks ago? :shock: :o come on guys have some patience, I personally haven't delt with this member but 1.5 weeks ago isn't alot of time to get all choked up. If the guy works and he has no ride. he has to bus it everywhere, think about it. He has to leave extra early to get to work, he gets home later then usuall, Give him a break. It would be a differen't story if its been a few months. Hopefully he'll come thru for everyone.

I think this issue has been resolved enough that only feedback from people who have done business with Schmickel should be posted in this thread.

Thanks to all involved in getting this looked after in a timely fashion. Perhaps in the future both buying and selling parties can have better communication.

mike sent my parts out as he said he would and they came to me in the time he estimated. i had only one small hitch with our transaction (a misplaced and overlooked bracket which mike will send) and the parts were all in very good condition.

based on my dealings with schmikel, i'd say that he's quite dependable.

Hey, this guy is alright. I'd buy a turbo setup off him if I had the money. I would buy from again.

I recently had a deal with Mike and everything went well. He was quick to respond to any questions and always kept me informed as to what was going on. He's a great guy and I would definately do business with him again.
