Need advice! Sold a turbo! Now being threatened!

Ok! So here is the deal! I sold a guy on here a turbo! I didn't notice but he had never even made a post on here! He just contacted me through pm! He pays me and I send him the turbo! Everything goes good!

So nearly a month later, which was yesterday, he texts me at 2 o'clock in the morning and said the turbo was junk and he wanted his money back!

I pulled the turbo off in perfect working condition and swapped to an 03 turbo! I put the seals on the 04 wrapped in plastic and sit it in my shop! It only had 114k on it anyway!

Now he is threatening to post buyer beware on here and start a PayPal claim! I really don't have a problem giving him his money back but I am about scared of the deal now with all these threats! His first post on here is in the for sale section on here urgently wanting a turbo and threatening me!

Here is my problems with the deal!
It has been a month since he bought it and this is the first I heard!
He said it ran great for 10 minutes before it started screeching!
I don't know what been done to the turbo but it was perfect when it left here!
Now the guy is threatening me on here in his very first post! Just doesn't sit to well with me!

I don't live far from Adrian and he told me he would take it, but I am scared to give the guy his money back until I get the turbo since the deal has been so bad!

Just don't know what to do!

Thats a crappy deal there. Hopefully all works out well. I agree with you and would want the turbo back before refunding the money. Maybe something was done to the turbo before he installed it. I can see him sittin on it for a month before gettin around to install it but also could have done somethin to it in the meantime.

He told me it had shaft play now! He didn't say anything about the shaft play before installing it! I would have never installed it if the shaft play was bad! That what makes me wonder!

Aren't you supposed to put some clean oil in the inlet when you install? Maybe he didn't do that.

If it was in good working order when it left you and he found a problem when he received it, that was the time to call attention to it. Or if you didn't fulfill the terms of the agreement. If he found shaft play and installed it anyway, then it's his fault. It's called buyer beware. It sounds like you were making a good faith deal with someone who screwed up and wants someone else to pay for it. I say, let him complain. You cant please everyone.

My buddy had the opposite happen to him. He traded a 2002 mustang gt convertible to a guy for a 1995 cobra. The deal was this guy would bring all parts and install at my buddy's house. He did that part but after he got the convertible, he just couldn't seem to make it out. When my buddy called him on it, all he wanted to do was complain about the car he got and how if he was unhappy he could sue if he wanted.

Bottom line is this; people, when they can get away with it will be total turds if it benefits them. They have no integrity nor compassion for anyone other than those who they can benefit from. The real test is what you do for those who can do nothing for you.


Wishin I was fishin.

I'd get the turbo back before refunding the money. People can be funny. Make sure your not getting the old turbo which he replaced yours with. He may have taken it apart to clean yours as well and damaged something in the process or may have even dropped it. Always sell things as is where is and get it in writing or e-mail confirmation as to acceptance of the terms in the future. Good luck

It didn't have shaft play when it left here! He didn't mention it when he got it! After he installed it and ran it 10 minutes he heard a noise, they took the air filter off and said the shaf had a lot of play! Like I said I was gonna give him are fund anyway because Adrian told me he could use it! But note since he posted that in the for sale section! I am having second thoughts! Especially since his first post ever on here is threatening me!

You have two options: either keep his money if you believe that the turbo was servicable when you shipped it and he did something to it (intentionally or unintentionally), or refund his money AFTER he returns the turbo. Absolutely DO NOT give him his money back until you have the turbo on your hands. And I mean physically in your hands. Don't rely on a tracking number as proof that it was shipped back to you.

I agree, he could ship you a brick...

As far as paypal is concerned once he files a claim,they will make him send the turbo back before refunding money.Now here's the bad part they don't go by you saying the turbo arrived they go by a delivery confirmation, so he could send you a weighted box and get away with it.Paypal= good for buyer bad for seller.
