    Have sold quite a few items like this though, and everyone have been treated correctly.
    Caveat Emptor; let the buyer beware.

    Always be sure that you're not the one put in a position where they can lose money unless you have faith in the reputation of the person you're doing business with.

    I have had no luck finding him guys. I made a run to Springfield, where he lives and couldn't find his work place. I've left multiple messages on his phone and had no reply.

    It worries me that he hasn't called. I'll keep tryin' !!!!

    I hate to do this...

    But hellrider77 has wasted my time.

    He agreed to buy a Duncan Distortion from me and said that he'd sent the Money Order for it via the mail.

    A month later I still haven't gotten the MO so I PM him asking if he'd forgotten to send it or if it might've gotten lost. I don't get a reply so a week later I PM him AND email him telling him the deal's off.

    He responds telling me that he hasn't responded to my PM's because he no longer has a user account here and couldn't get my PMs.

    Thats a load of crap. Look at post #103 and check the registry. His account is working just fine and he logged in on the 15th of this month.

    So that's one count for lying and one for wasting my time.

    I do not think I will be dealing with him again and I'd advise against it to others.

    Update on this, I have e-mailed him, contacted PayPal with a fraud claim, and AIM'd him. One day I got this reply:

    DevilTiger01: hey
    DevilTiger01: i want to know where those ****ing mustang pups are bud

    mranderson169: yea...man i havent sent them yet
    mranderson169: i can still send them
    DevilTiger01: no, you will send them or i'll be contacting the authorities
    mranderson169: ha ha ha
    mranderson169: contacting the authorities
    mranderson169: ha ha ha h
    mranderson169: they will tell you dont be such a dumbass when sending out money
    DevilTiger01: just send the pickup
    mranderson169: its petty theft if anything
    mranderson169: they will tell you use retail next time
    mranderson169: ok
    DevilTiger01: thank you
    mranderson169: thats all you had to say...you didnt have to threaten
    DevilTiger01: i wouldnt care but it was for a friend

    DevilTiger01: okay cool thanks
    Session Close (mranderson169): Fri Nov 25 1717 2005


    So obviously I thought this pickup was going to be here and it never came. I messaged him a few more times with concerns and he said it'd be here by Thursday. Never was.

    I had to explain to my friend that his $20.00 bucks for his birthday was stolen and he couldn't get the pickup for his 1960's Fender Mustang that his father gave him. This is one of the worst guitar transactions ever and I hope PayPal nails this *******.

    Hey Pinto79, did everything work out with JB_From_Hell? I just send off a MO for a Dimebucker, and since we agreed to the trade I've had no communication with him, and it's been a little over a week. I'm just concerned, because he won't reply to PM's or emails. Any help would be appreciated...

    Ok, seriously, this is complete bull****.

    If you'd read the above posts, you'd see that yes, he did get his guitar.

    I sent you back a pm the other day confirming our trade, and when you sent me the one saying you'd sent the money order, I sent one back saying that i'd send the dime when I got it. And about 5 minutes ago, I sent another one saying I'm going out of town today, and will send the dime regardless of whether the m.o. gets here today or not.

    You mailed the m.o. monday. Today is wednesday. Relax.

    Sorry JB_From_Hell, you're right I need to relax, although after we agreed to the trade I didn't here from you for almost a week. You should've at least kept in touch, but I was quick to post in the bade trader thread, my humble apology.

    I hate to do this but... I'd avoid dusklose, he said he wanted a pup I had for sale. He said he sent a money order. I mailed him back after a week and told him I never recieved it. He mails me back saying he's sorry he didn't have the money. I told him he should have just been honest from the beginning. Then he mails me back saying it was his brother who was using his id saying he didn't want it. He tells me he wants and the check is in the mail. Again no check comes. He goes thru a big story of how the usps says they get lost all the time. A new check is in the mail. This one never comes either. I mail him again and he writes back saying "I guess it wasn't meant to be." He aslo said he would send me a scan of the check stub but it went through the wash. That surprised me because I was sure his dog ate it.

I sent out 1 money order, and he didnt recieve so i sent a second one which aparently he didnt recieve either....i never said usps loses them all the time...but they say "it happens". and if he doesnt recieve 2 moneyorders, obviously it wasnt meant to be, and i couldnt get my money back for the second one because of my stub being Washed...my dog doesnt go into my pants so he really cant eat it...plus i've never seen my dog eat paper...so i'm in the hole 50$ and i'm getting blamed for not paying...

    Dusklose, what happen to the first money order you said you sent out? Then 7 days later you told me you didn't send it out because you had to admit you just didn't have the money. I asked you why you just didn't tell me that from the beginning? Then you came back with the story of how it was your brother who used your ID and said you didn't want it, and that you really do want it and another check is in the mail. That check never came either. All in all I waited a month for 2 checks that never arrived? Come on! You should have quit after you told me you didn't have the money and I would not have cared. I understand what its like to be in school and trying to scrape money together. I just didn't like being jerked around for a month.

    Avoid Hellrider77 like the plague, Im the top Super moderator on Ultimate-guitar.com and has scammed at least 3 people so far buying and selling. I keep getting constant complaints about him. The worse thing is UG is mostly populated by kids who have little to no money and its very heartbreaking hearing some of the storys.
