This is one of those situations where the court of public opinion might be a very effective tool. One of our own has been ripped off, and looking out for each other is one of the things we do.

Let's say that 30 or 40 of us take three minutes out of the day, once a week, to call Alfredo and ask him to finish and deliver those two bumpers. Alfredo would literally be getting seven calls a day, every day, telling him to get the work done. He wouldn't be able to block the numbers--there would be too many of them. Even if he were to try, most of us have more than one number we can call from.

It would literally be easier to get out the welder and finish the dang bumpers than it would be to put up with that kind of onslaught of phone calls. I'll bet a quarter that it would take less than a month--fewer than four, three-minute calls from each of us--for Economan to have his bumpers.

What do y'all say? I'll make the first call, today. Economan, we will need to know your name so we know who to reference. Who's in? Let's go get this man his bumpers.

Alfredo's phone number: 619-288-0747
Alfredo's email: fcimetalwerks@gmail.com

Greetings economan. I've been following your story with sympathy and anger as I too have had your experience a few times with contractors. You have my support in how ever you decide to pursue compensation however my recommendation is to try to get reimbursed by the third parties involved. PayPal, ect. Don't bother trying collect directly from him. In fact I wouldn't even contact him any more. My experience with this type of guy is he doesn't have anything to collect from. Everything is borrowed and maybe in different names. He has way bigger issues chasing him. Your not the only one he is in trouble with. Could be legal, illegal, courts, debtors, anything. Probably stuff you don't want to get more involved with. You! getting back to your normal life is most important, and if your like me at all, this guy is living rent free in your head at the moment. You enjoying life and the people around you is way more important than this guy.

I was scammed by this guy too!

I don't usually post but figured it's best if I say something to help others from getting ripped off. He did the same to me. Stoped answering the phone after getting the money.

Sorry to hear that Will. I didn't have the money back then, but was thinking about it. Glad other projects came up before I sent $$$.

I've done this, for a fellow VW guy in New Mexico, that bought $800-$900 worth of 1960's original EMPI parts.

I showed up unannounced to the seller's address that I was given, firmly but politely told the guy what I was there for. He came back to the door 5 minutes later with three boxes of stuff and a sob story.

I interrupted him mid sentence, and told him "I got what I came for, see ya".

It's a lot tougher for some guys to deal face to face, they usually cave when they know they're in the wrong.

Hi there,
I am interested in your nerf bars. Do you have a picture of the ones you are selling?
Thank you for your time,
Eric
