View Full Version : JD from East Coast Custom Enclosures SCAMMED ME!

05-12-2008, 08:09 PM
Maybe this will make him refund me but I doubt it. Here's the background to the story:


Well, JD STILL hasn't refunded me my money and my dispute with Paypal was set to end tomorrow. I had called and e-mailed JD multiple times throughout this dispute to try and settle it without Paypal having to do anything and without tarnishing he reputation, but it seems as if he does not care. After my previous e-mails he FINALLY gets back to me today saying "The funds are going into my account today and I will send them to you the second they clear." I don't know how long it should take for them to clear, but if he assured paypal and me that he would pay by the 12th shouldn't he have started this process a couple of days ago to ensure I would have it today? Better yet, why didn't he just immediately refund me the money I paid him for something I didn't order?

Anyways, I think the process of clearing money into Paypal takesat least a day and my dispute ends tomorrow so I decided to escalate the dispute to a claim only to receive a slap to the face by Paypal saying,

"We have completed our investigation of this case. No further action is required by you at this time. We have denied this claim. As stated in our User Agreement, PayPalís Buyer Complaint Policy only applies to the shipment of goods, not to disputes about the attributes or quality of the goods received. We have noted your claim in the seller's record. The seller's account privileges will be limited if excessive complaints are received"

So it looks like JD gets a slap on the wrist by Paypal and I get screwed out of 300 bucks and stuck with a f*cking 8.5 cubic foot cat house that will inevitably end up at the dump because its completely useless to me.

It just ***** that this guy acts like such a good dude telling me I'll be refunded and that I'll have a free box built for me only to find out that he was simply procrastinating until he could finish ripping me off.

If I get my money now I will be EXTREMELY shocked, so as of now I will say DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THIS GUY! If he clears this up, then I still won't do business with him, but I will let bygones be bygones.

I know JD is liked and respected here, but this has been BY FAR the worst transaction I have EVER been involved in. NO customer service, NO communication, NO product that I would EVER present as my work, and NO refund.

Just to emphasize it:


05-12-2008, 08:13 PM
not to laugh but that is exactly what happened to me, escalated it and got the immediately. Paypal is the biggest **** hole i have ever used. Cant they just tell you they are not going to do **** instead of going through the problem of you having to click the claim button. **** paypal

and fyi to anymore scammers paypal cant use forum evidence because they tried that one and they got sued in court because of it.

So ya volstitan908 manned up and payed i hope you get what you need bro

05-12-2008, 08:16 PM
I know that now, but it ***** I'm getting screwed from JD building a ****** product that wasn't anything close to what I ordered and I'm still paying for it.

05-12-2008, 08:17 PM
I just realized I posted this in the classifieds. Sorry, I am just riled up, I didn't pay attention. If someone would move it that would be great. Once again, sorry.

05-12-2008, 08:21 PM
why not learn how to build your own - save money and hassle..

05-12-2008, 08:22 PM
wow dude......for $300 you could have had one of my enclosures plus a chunk of the shipping

05-12-2008, 08:29 PM
I know, I know. I'm in college and don't have time to build a box. I could this summer, but I just elected to say **** the hassle and have one built only to get screwed.

Does he work for the business or is it a one-man show?

05-12-2008, 08:33 PM

Is that really his myspace? Because i thought that that's Mark Potts' Myspace :confused:

Edit: Is JD and Mark Potts the same?

05-12-2008, 08:39 PM
JD is a completely different dude from Mark Potts. I think JD runs his own business where he is a one man show. I had heard a lot of good about his work so I said F it I'll try him out, but DON'T!!!!

05-12-2008, 08:41 PM
nvm, i'm retarded. Good luck with everything

05-12-2008, 08:46 PM
Thanks, man. I thought quite a few people here knew JD personally?

05-12-2008, 08:47 PM

he used to be over there a lot posting up build logs. They all look nice, I don't know what happened with yours though

05-12-2008, 08:49 PM
I am really shocked to see this. I have talked to him on several occasions. Has always seemed like a very good dude. Im curious to see how this turns out.

BTW, he is a one man show to my knowledge.

05-12-2008, 08:52 PM
sounds like potts to me............

05-12-2008, 08:54 PM
I dont think it is even close to being fair to throw him in with Potts. Mark scammed 10+ people on like 3 or 4 different occasions. This is one case...

05-12-2008, 08:55 PM
yea, he is a one man show. He has stated that before

05-12-2008, 08:55 PM
I'll probably post this on caraudiojunkyard then. Thanks.

05-13-2008, 12:04 AM
Still no money. That son of *****.

05-13-2008, 12:07 AM
where does he live if you don't mind posting here

05-13-2008, 12:08 AM
reece, post this on caf.com, he has a big as_s thread on his enclosures there in the f/s section. and while my box wasn't nearly as bad as yours was, i will never do anymore business with him myself nor recommend him to anyone either.

05-13-2008, 12:19 AM

05-13-2008, 12:23 AM
Yeah, I wouldn't either. NO ONE BUY FROM THIS TOOL.

05-13-2008, 12:31 AM

05-13-2008, 12:37 AM

05-13-2008, 03:14 AM
Thanks, man.

05-13-2008, 02:44 PM
Just so people know.

05-14-2008, 08:46 PM
Well, after being promised for the 3rd time that I would receive my refund I still haven't seen my money back.

05-23-2008, 12:54 PM
Yeah, I still have no money.

05-23-2008, 01:01 PM
I was gonna get him to build my box. He does seem pretty legit though.

05-23-2008, 05:03 PM
got my 2nd box in from him today. nothing wrong with it. waiting for ups to come so i can install my sub. took about 2 weeks to deliver.

05-27-2008, 03:38 PM
Some of those guys on CAF seem like total cocksuckers. I joined that forum just to make a few posts in defense of you. Good luck with this case. :)

05-29-2008, 06:30 PM
That Quiet Vette guy is dense.

06-05-2008, 10:45 PM
Yeah most of them seem like tools. Shockingly, I haven't even received a partial refund.

06-05-2008, 10:47 PM

06-05-2008, 10:57 PM
Is it all carpeted ?Maybe you could sell it to a pet store or Petco or a fancy cat hotel.Leave the sub[s] out and they could play hide and seek between the slot-ports!!!!!!!!!!!Good-Luck...

06-13-2008, 04:16 PM

Check the new **** they've said. I appreciate your support Brian and Jesse, but this guy can't be dealt with. He needs to open his eyes and take JD's nuts out of his mouth.

06-17-2008, 12:45 PM

06-26-2008, 10:43 AM
Remind me never to do business on CAF. Those idiots pretty much defend scamming.

OP, you're a bad buyer...... how dare you demand the product you paid for! :rolleyes:
