Re: ARMed&bangin __ ripped me off..
Yea, be cautious with this guy. Sure. Whatever. I do not have proof that it was sent off. You know this.
What went wrong with this deal:
1. You didn't test it. As you said...if you would have tested it all of this would not have happened...or would it? You said to ship it back to you b/c you were gonna sell it to someone broken. When you took it out of your car, if it were working properly, why were the wiring so crudely cut that it took a solder gun to get it back together? To me, it seems like it crapped out on you and you didn't care about mutilating the wiring harness b/c you no longer had a need for it. What you did have a need for was another HU...then low and behold, there's a guy on here wanting to trade the Clarion dvd player for an alpine. Hmmm...sounds like a solution to your problems.
2. Genie didn't get tracking info.
I am seriously done with this all. I can't prove anything, just as you can't. I don't make a killing on my for sale threads, so if these faulty accusations hurt my sales any, so be it. I will always have my repeat customers who paid for an item and got what they paid for (or more) in a quick manner.
Oh, and one last thing...the day I initially tried to hook up the HU for my wife's first ever competition and it didn't work, I posted the story on my team's site. If that were not true, why would I have gone through the trouble of saying so to my teammates? I can't post the URL because it's a restricted site for team members only, but here's my words copied from there (initially posted on Feb 21) and posted here:
Installed the tweets. Installed the HU...powered it up to find out that it's junk. I think I ended up trading my 7" touchscreen for a nonworking Alpine 7897 and a set of 6.5 Infinity Kappas. I initially thought I had possibly not wired something right. But I took another Alpine HU, and plugged it into the wire harness I had just spliced in....it worked. I took the junk one, plugged it in again, and NOTHING. Well, not really nothing. It powers on, reads CDs, and acts like it's playing, but there's no output. I contacted the dude who traded it to me, to see if there's any "trick" to get it to play, or "did you just trade me some junk?" Waiting on a reply. If I got scammed, this will be a first. I checked his refs and all, and everything seemed to be on the up and up. I am pissed though.
