I don't know if the guy was trying to scam me or is just an irresponsible seller.
I saw that he posted an AQ1200D for sale here in the classifieds. So I offered to buy it. PM's were exchanged and I had to wait a few days to deposit some money that I could send to him through PayPal. I asked that he send more pictures of the amp, which he did, so I felt that everything was alright and I sent payment.
After waiting a few days and not receiving any PM's about tracking info, I contact him again on here and on his gmail account. He then tells me that he didn't accept payment and didn't want to do a transaction through PayPal. I became cautious here as there is no way for me to tell if he accepted a payment or not.
I opened a dispute on PayPal hoping this would make him refund the payment and also make things appear better for me in case of a claim investigation.
He then said that he never wanted to sell the amp. ??? Wtf, so I emailed him again and then he escalated it to a claim. It says it was escalated to a claim because he said he shipped the amp. Then he posts a message on the dispute message saying that he sold the amp face to face in his state and that he told me he was doing so. (Which he never did, and if I had not contacted him about the amp, I doubt he would have ever responded to me.)
We will see how this pans out. Looks like based on his messages I will get my money back after the investigation, but I have a lot of evidence ready to be submitted.
LONG STORY SHORT: Magnatus has been very unclear and hard to reach at times creating all kinds of headaches for me.
My first transaction on ca.com didn't go well. I have bought/sold on forums before but not car audio equipment. And don't confuse this person with Magnus, I haven't bought from him but he has a ton of references on here. Similar name so please don't confuse it.
