Please be aware of Sukuk1 - this guy sells a lot of fog lights and steering wheels. All his pics seem to be the same ones. Some members have had successful transactions with him. But I have not. I have sent him two payments of $165 & $120 in US dollars. These are payments for a steering wheel and fog lights. I sent him the last payment of $120 on January 7th, 2015. To date, I have not seen or received any items. I have also been all but ignored too. I sent him a PM on February 13th, 2015. On February 22nd, he replied and said he would check on the status and get back with me the very next day. He never replied the next day and to date, I have not got a response from him. And, YES, he has visited the forum since I received this PM. His last visit to date was March 15th, 2015 (The date of this post but, after 12 hours after it was posted).

In all fairness, I sent him the first payment of $165 on October 6th, 2014 for a steering wheel. At my request, he held on to the payment for several months. I wanted him to wait on shipping the steering wheel so I could come up with the extra money for the fog lights and save on shipping. His communication was excellent up until I sent my last payment. And also in fairness, several other members also appear to have had successful transactions with him.

So, my advice is if you want to purchase something from him, most likely you will get what you pay for. But there is a chance you may not get what you paid for? It is up to you...

Even more bad news. Suzuk1 visited the forum after I made this post and sent him a PM. No reply to my post or my PM. YES, I am screwed!!!

Look at his profile: http://www.teamswift.net/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=30800

You can see that he has visited the forum since this post and he has not responded. I have also sent him several PMs asking for a reply. I have sent him a link to this thread. He has ignored them all. It is clear that he does not intend to reply or deliver my steering wheel and fog lights! I am out $285 :thwack:

Did you try opening a paypal claim?
I myself have bought a set of fog lights from him and one arrived damaged. I contacted him and he had a 2 replacement lenses (one for the damaged fog and one I requested for another damaged fog I had laying around) on their way for just the cost of shipping.

I don't trust anyone on this site who is only on Teamswift to sell parts. From what I have seen they only cause complications and have the highest prices anyways. They usually aren't contributing members and just want to make a buck and have no regard for this community.

Beach, you make a good point! Sadley, it is has been too long since I made the payment. The time limit to file a claim has long since passed. Suzuk1 has been on the forum today. It is clear he has no intentions of reply to my PMs or this thread

Come on Suzuk1, don't be shy! Talk up! There must be something going on with this guy? His PayPal account is no doubt locked up. This may be preventing him from refunding the money he owes? He visits the forum on daily basis, perhaps to check in? His communications were excellent up to February, but then things went silent...

I just want my money back or my parts shipped!

Please, Suzuk1, contact me via email outside this forum.

The email address to contact me at is: shimaze@gmail.com

We all go thru tough times at some point in our lives. It is how we work thru these times that is important. Please, do the right thing, speak up & make things right!

Thanks, Shimaze
