Dont Get Scammed

Hey guys, i just wanted to share my experience with you all. I was Scammed by this guy named Christopher Maxilom currently lives in CA. He got me out of $1,000 Posing as a VIS Racing Rep, Which after speaking with the director of sales Fred V. Come to find out really works for Essential Motorsports which has enough bad reviews and scamming stories to keep you reading and empty a bag of popcorn

It was all over a Carbon Fiber Hood for a LCI E92. So with this being said be weary of the so called vendors. Learned my lesson and moved on

The story ofcourse is much deeper and detailed ( Save me the backlash ) but with the legal actions currently pending i cant speak on too much.

Man that sucks. This is why I'm afraid to buying on the forums or not from a website.

if you paid with a credit card, you can have them backcharge it - as long as it's been less than 90 days.

Yup If you paid with credit card then contact your company. If you paid by debit card call your back and dispute your charge. This happens to me twice and both times my bank immediately reimbursed me then investigated the charges.

You should delete this post ASAP then, if there actually is "legal action" this will come back and bite you in the ass. Or at least repost with substantial proof to support this claim.

I always take posts like this with a grain of salt because it could be untrue and someone just trying to slander, or more to the story(one-sided). Especially considering it's from an account with 0 rep and ~70 posts.

Regardless this post should probably be deleted by the mods as there is personal information and unsubstantiated claims.

Then let it bite me in the ass if i am lying/liar. I have a lawyer and i know what i can and cant do. Lastly i wouldn't care to waste my time and effort in slandering someones name nor typing this up just for my health. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and i have received yours, Thank you sir.

P.S. Rep or no rep i'm a human being and shouldn't be judged off a digit. Everyone on this forum starts out with "0" Rep, Meaning at one point someone probably could say the same about you...1click* Just made you 233 rep. Good day sir
