Default add Ad #1627095 from Mike 2124 is a scam

Like an Idiot I fell for it. He now has $500 of mine and I have no Kart. Talked with him by phone, text and email for 2 days, but as soon as he got the money, now the Kart is ruined (he said via text) and won't call or return calls. Yet when I had a friend call, he said the kart was still available and that nothing was wrong with the Kart. Wanted him to make an offer, said he'd pay for shipping and that he was selling because he was getting deployed. All the same BS he fed me. :x :x :x :evil:

Lets see what happends when i call.

All I got was a Voicemail.

What method of payment did you send him? Cash, Check Charge?

I sent him a message asking what his bottom dollar was in cash, lets see if he replies. If you sent a check or money order you may have some legal action. Was he supposed to ship the cart to you or were you going to pick it up? Do you have his address or full name?

Check your PMs- There is info on how to pursue the seller and it doesnt require legal action.

If what
thecurti
says is true we have us a live one...

I just spoke to Seller on the phone, Says his name is Bill Hurter.
says the cart is in great shape, never wrecked and the engine only has 15 minutes of run time.

When I asked him particulars/specifics on the cart, he did not seem to really know much including the size of the engine, but he gauanatees its the all new and ready to go...

He told me that he needs to sell it before he enters the military next week. Says he'll take 600 bucks shipped. If I would send him a deposit of 300.00 he would ship the cart to me and then I could send him the balance after I received the cart.

I smell a fish.

I also did a quick search for Mr. Hurter on the internet, no home phone is listed.

A reverse phone search shows his cell was issued out of Tuscaloosa, Alamaba.

His address is
10965 Hwy 31
Evergreen, Al. 36401
205-210-6151
