I too am in the same boat.. Aberry scammed me for his Lux. That scumbag.

I actually contacted 6 or 7 of his relatives through Facebook explaining the situation and didn't get a single reply. Pathetic.

Some of you guys on here are traversing the very fine line between being a free man and being incarcerated.

You all DO realize internet threats and harassment are against the law, and often punishable with jail time and heavy fines, don't you?

Not at all sticking up for this guy who dealt Game a raw deal, but rather looking out for all of you guys here.

Please be careful the kinds of things you say and do on the internet, as they often can be left open to interpretation, and often not in your favor.

While your screen names may be anonymous on here, your IP addresses are not.
Have a safe and happy new year everyone.

Yeah all of the info has been found out on this kid already guys. The deal is over, I sold the lights yesterday and have gotten most of my money back now. Mike still denies he did anything wrong though, lolz.

Haha thanks. I've been a part of 60+ transactions through online forums and this wasn't my first scam unfortunately. In the end I only lost about $40 or so I can't even be that upset.

I think ordering some LCI tails from Tischer has helped too. Will be enjoying the peace of mind.

I know how shitty it can feel man. I've definitely been on the receiving end of both sides.

I've been sold deceptive crap that didn't meet my expectations through Amazon- one of them even including a bootleg version of Dre beats!

I contacted the seller, with of course no response, then I contacted Amazon, and not only did I get a monetary refund, but I kept the damn things and ripped them apart and threw them in the garbage lol.

Some buyers I sold to I had goofed up with as well. It was out of sheer ignorance, but I made it right and made it up to them by getting the parts they needed off of my car in one case for an intake, even meeting up and going to Home Depot with them to get the tools to get the stubborn part off my car for them, and in another case paypal'd the money the guy needed for the clamps he needed to install my performance exhaust.

People fail to realize, it's not always the sale that matters most, but the support you provide afterward in the event of the rare snag a buyer may encounter, and the type of service you provide from posting your product right up to the point of sale.

As a seller, for me personally, these are THE most important parts of my obligation, not the product itself.

Wow glad Amazon took care of that. How'd you know they were fakes?

Completely agree about the seller though. I sold a guy my Valentine radar to a member here, he received it and after a day it didn't work. No idea what happened but I paid for some of the repair bill to help him out.

Well mostly because the piece that was on the end where the plug went into the device was kind of a weird rubber.

I actually called Monster themselves and found out they were fake, there's a serial number on every one apparently- not to mention there was a video on YouTube that will show you how to spot a fake- so yeah it was unfortunate.

Game, you and I are a rare breed my friend. Believe it when I tell you though, what goes around comes around man- find happiness in knowing this.
Have a great New Years brother!

I watched a big special on 60 minutes I think about counterfeit items, specifically beats by dre and it was amazing. There are literally millions out there.

As for the LCI's. I would love some, but doubt I ever will. I personally can't stand cars where it's hard to tell what their signals are reading. My lights clearly indicate with my signals flashing yellow. If I get LCI lights I would want euros. Plus the coding plus the footwell module it would run me a grand. Don't have that kind of income to throw yet. If and when I do, it's going to an msport dual exhaust rear lol.

Just my 2 cents on LCI's.

It's amazing how many people try to make money by scamming others.

Thanks though, I am definitely a strong believe in karma.

You actually don't need the footwell module as long as it's coded properly.

Well I keep hearing that. So what's the point of spending an extra 300 for the module? Coding is still required regardless isn't it? Lol

Yeah coding is still required, but you can get that done for under $50 I'm sure.

Yea so I don't get the importance of buying that module if not needed. Well knowing it can be coded would make it a lot cheaper. I definitely want to do this at some point but they'll have to be Euro's.

Have you already ordered yours?
