Thumbs down KobraKye - Beware, Dishonest member

We sent our only samples of the Dimisa Quad tips to this customer (Name: Dan Kye) who agreed to test them for us and send back feedback in exchange for the free set of tips.

Since then, we have not been able to get in contact with him, sending multiple PMs, emails, etc.

Beware this dishonest member. If anyone can help us get a hold of him, that would be appreciated. He owes us $200 or a very, very detailed review/apology.

We've had a similiar experience with this member...

After filling his order exactly as he requested, sending numerous PM's and emails to keep him updated, and going out of our way to make special arrangements to better suit his needs....this customer ended up filing a claim with the Better Business Bureau as he didn't feel he was obligated to pay the flatrate shipping charges that are clearly outlined on our site, and that he was informed of from the get-go. Needless to say, we haven't heard a peep from him since, and the BBB basically laughed at his claim.

Sorry to hear about your unfortunate situation with this 'up-standing' member of the community. He's been blacklisted from our site...I recommend other vendors do the same. PM Jason or myself if we can be of further assistance.

He's in LA so it's not like we can't go pay him a visit, just trying to solve this amicably. Just called and I think I spoke to his father or brother who told me I could not contact him directly but that I'd have to wait for a call back... What is this crap?

Just got a hold of a family member. Good story. Can't share it. But he's not available. The family member is going to look through his room for the tips.

But, judging from the story, my "beware" comments still apply - perhaps now more than ever.

My guess is he engaged in some kind of mass scamming and got in trouble.
