he wasn't a trader on here but is/was a trader on the ozzie forum .

Hi

I purchased the R34 Nismo sideskirts off him around the same time and had no problem with communication or delivery. I did however use Paypal for payment.

But now that you mention it he did not reply to a mail i sent him about something else a couple of months ago. May send another mail and see if he replies.

no i did but i forgot my old username and password .
only found out about him from the ozzie forum when i googled his name .
this is in no way anything to do with this forum its my own fault ive been ripped off and seems like a few other people have been ripped off as well with silvia bits and such .

no blame attached at all to gtroc its just a heads up to anyone who might be tempted with this .

Ok im guessing it will be too late to file a complaint with paypal however if you paid with paypal using a credit card then it would be worth contacting your card company.

Good Luck

It says this on his website

" Clients from countries such as the U.K, USA, New Zealand and even Europe "

his geography skills are obviously lacking....

pm me some details and I'll happily paste them into an email to the guy... as I have just emailed him asking about items in his shop and he took the bait - has responded:mad::eek::lamer:

Something like...well, first of all, before quoting me, would you explain why...!

Why has it taken you more than 8 months to post this up ?

Is there any answer from his shop when you call ?

I emailed him at 12pm and he just replied back, so he is obviously answering his emails.

hey guys, ive received an email from him today so will now wait and see what happens.

Date: Friday, August 28, 2009, 10:25 AM


hey, i honestly put thru payment weeks ago now , online.

i thought everything was ok till i got back today, i couldnt check my emails as i can only check them on my laptop. and have receievd about 4 from u just today alone

it is a public holiday here today, but i will go to my bank tomoro morning (hopefully theyre open until midday) and chase it up, its all on my bank statement so it shouldnt be a drama for them to see whats happend, the money hasnt bounced back so im not sure what the go is.

i swear to u on my life u will get ur money next week, have u still got the GTR? ill send u somethin for it.

thanks

well maybe GTROC rules the world
but i did get a similar message on the 7th june hopefully it'll be sorted this time.

cheers guys
