ABerry is a scammer, be warned. On Saturday (oct-6) I purchased his Luz h8 v3 bulb. He didn't have Paypal so he wanted me to wire transfer the money to him. Seemed pretty legit, called me a few time and everything seemed to be checking out.

I asked for a picture of his drivers license but he told me he had lost it at a bar. Instead he sent me a picture of his passport.

Well I wire him the money Saturday night. He was supposed to ship it via FedEx as soon as he picked up the money from western union. Didn't hear from him that night.

He msgs me the next day and says he was invited to a party and got caught up afterwards so he gave the package to his fiancé to send and was going to meet up with her to get the tracking number.

Haven't heard anything since Sunday night. The phone number I had for him is apparently a google voice account and he has now deactivated it. He's not reply to any PM's and I've tried reaching out to him trough his threads.

I think I've given it enough time to determine fully that this was a scam and that he had stolen money from me.

I know he has a couple of other things in the for sale section, please do not buy from this user...

If you have a picture of his passport it includes their social security info... You could build a case against such individual... If you just have a picture of the picture of the passport it's going to take a long time...

However if you have his existing google voice number you could file a complaint trough google services requesting assistance... Provide the dates of conversation, copy of wire transfer information, your state civil lawsuit, a police theft report case number... You may need legal help but its possible to trace back the identity of your scammer...


Or

It could be he is a legit guy with poor customer service...

So sorry OP. If I had lux and wanted to upgrade to something else like OSS I'd just give you my set. This shit is from pure scumbags and it sucks that there are people out there like that, especially doing business on this forum. Good luck

Kind of a weird story overall. If I was a scammer I think I'd scam someone out for a lot more then just a pair of lux angeleyes...

That is the thing. Sell relatively low-priced items but in quantity. Buyers may be less worried about shelling out $ versus $$$. Hence they get victims like OP.

Frickin' hate these scum bags!!!
