So just that. I bought some headlights from him for $120 shipped and he said they were in great condition, that "he felt he didn't need them." Well I got them and they were all busted to [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] and silicone everywhere. The worst part is that the actual lights point directly down. You can't even see with them. I wouldn't have cared what condition they were in if I could acutally see the damn road, but to some people, screwing others over for money, doesn't bother them.

The best part of this is the fact that he edited his description after I paid him the money to make it look legit on his part. Here is the link:

Now why would he edit his description after I paid him?! UNLESS it was to say "sold." But he didn't do that. He changed it around.

So to sum it up, don't buy from this douchebag. If enough people convince me to, I'll post his addy and information, but until then, PM me for it if you want it.

I hope so. I just don't want anyone else getting screwed like I did. I have been buying and selling off the internet for years now and this is the first incident I've ever had. The guy was a total jerk about it too. Oh well.

That blows.
I was calm compared to my wife. She was ready to kill someone, but I knew that it was going to have to happen sometime or another.

I might just try taking the clear lens off them and putting them on the stock headlight housing.

Just wanted to let you know, that I just confirmed that his Buy/Sell and PM rights have been revoked.

Good Luck in the future with any new purchases and sorry things went this way for you. It's very unfortunate that people stoop to that level.....

I hate do bring up a dead thread, but I never knew about this thread so I could never really defend myself...All I really have to say though is that I've been buying and selling off FF for a while and never had a problem and I even had more compliments and this was my first complaint. I tried to get the money back from the guy I bought them off ebay from but to no avail (I lost the paypal complaint), im pretty sure his s/n got kicked off or something.
I only edited my sale thread to put "SOLD" in the title
as you can see it says:
"Last edited by golden305pervert on 06-15-2006 at 08:03 AM"
and at the same time i had put
"These were just sold.
-Thanks for looking everyone!"

No you didn't put sold in the first post. You made an indivual post that they were sold and then the thread was eventually closed. Anyone can look at the thread and see that. Its all fishy on your part that the first post was edited after I paid you. Everyone, look at the thread and see that he is lying and see how fishy it looks.

He went back after I paid him and edited the description. He should have put "sold" in the first post, then nothing would have looked out of place for him. But either way he scammed me on the lights.

Look, I understand your side of the story very well...and if I were you i'd be just as mad, but you're not see my side at all...If I gave you the refund then I have useless light and im out the money that I used to ship and the money I used to by the lights from the guy on e-bay....and then, I dont even have the money anymore, Im a student and spent it on 2 books and tuition is comming soon, etc. Dude, weighing all the options i'd rather get booted off of FF rather than face no being to take a class for monetary issues. Im not even gunna talk about the lights anymore cuz we've already diputed enough and im holding my ground and you yours. I know you proly wont believe me when I say this Eric but I wasnt looking for drama like this or to scam anyone.

Is that what happens when you've given up on disputing and just sold someone lame lights?

College might be a better channel after all, a good lesson to learn, don't screw people.
