*NEGATIVE* Feedback of Forum Sellers Here
Quote | Reply
Just want to get one of these started. Since this is arguably more important than a positive sellers thread.

Leading the charge in the shittiest sellers on the forum is Ironmanjp. You can read about Jason Pretty here:

http://forum.slowtwitch.com/.../?page=unread#unread

He's an exceptionally dishonest seller and deserves to be placed at the top of this list.

Who else should everyone know about?

Oh. Also. Since he'll probably change his name soon, note the paypal account he uses is his wife's: Bethan Martin.

If he's smart (which hes not), he'll probably change that though too.

Hmm, I bought two items from ironmanjp, both arrived after quite a long time, but that's generally normal for me for stuff sent from Canada.

Yes, I did. Generally I will pay with friends/family if it is someone I have bought from before, maybe I will stop doing that.

I 100% agree with creating this kind of post. I will add my experience with terrible sellers and add "Hilltopper93" to the list. Here is a now closed thread after Slowman had to get involved along with this guys superiors in he Army.

Who - Ready4Launch (fka Jersey Quaker). Paypal address wayne.d.wicks@gmail.com.
What - $70 B70 Helix Wetsuit
When - For sale post 1/15/15. Paid 1/15/15. "Shipped" 1/20/15. Quit responding 3/2/15.

Sent funds via Paypal (same day) as a gift. It never showed up.

On 2/8 he said:
Quote:
"I'm trying to find the receipt with the USPS tracking. If it doesn't show up, I'll paypal you back."
On 3/2 he said:
Quote:
"Sorry -- just swamped with traveling and work. Look, I don't know what's gone wrong here. I went to send the suit originally from Palm Springs, CA while I was traveling, but didn't do it then. I sent it when I got back to Ventura, CA, which is when I sent you the message saying it was on its way. I sent the suit to the address you gave me. I don't know where the tracking info went; likely trashed it since it was USPS and I've never actually used the tracking info because I've never had a USPS problem."

He quit responding at that point.

I traded some zipp firecrest 808s for 404s with ironmanjp... the 808s arrived at his house Canada in 5 days... After much headache, I did get the 404s delivered but it took over a month. Lots of excuses and shady communications with the guy but he finally did ship the 404s. I thought maybe he was busy that month and couldn't ship the wheels but reading about this guy, I realize he's just a bad seller. I would definitely not do business with ironmanjp again.

Creyes (Carl Reyes) a member on the forum agreed to sell a Fenix 3 watch for $350. I sent the money via paypal, stupidly under the gift rather than purchase category. He responded once, apologizing for taking so long to mail the watch to me, and that is the last I have heard from him. I have left messages on his personal email, messaging through the forum, and left messages on his phone to no avail.

Buyer beware.

Most people ask for friends and family via PayPal and I usually have no issues doing this. I'm hoping that all the folk I interact with on this site are above board as I have had no issues thus far.
Then again there will always be a rotten apple in every bunch.

Trevor Wende, 20twende, sold me rollers that were missing parts. All parts were in the picture but a few parts were missing in the box. He ordered some parts from the manufacturer that I received, but he told me he had the other part, and he would send it to me. That was months ago, he has not sent the part, he is not replying to emails. I talked to the manufacturer who no longer has that part. So now I have totally useless rollers.

link pretty much says it all-at least from my point of view

http://forum.slowtwitch.com/.../?page=unread#unread

Buddy "bought" his BKool, paid on Dec 7th since then "nada" no responses after multiple attempts to find out what is going on-only response from Rob ( used2B-sub3 ) was that he was sick and would ship it the next day, of course it was pay-pal to a friend, as requested, so getting his money back will be a bit more difficult. AmEx will stand behind him, it's a shame a guy from the industry would ignore all attempts to rectify the situation-regardless buyer beware when it comes to Rob aka Used2B-sub3

From his for sale add which ironically the description has been changed to read just "SOLD"

Been another 10 days Rob-you logged in on the 29th...what's the deal-refund the money already...it is apparent you are not shipping anything...

I ended up measuring out the part and getting it 3d printed. So this guy is a thief but I don't expect him to do anything for me now. Moving on with my life...

For what it's worth, I recently purchased a pair of Zipp 404's and a Super 9 from Jason Pretty, ironmanjp (although this isn't the name he uses anymore). I'm in Arizona, he's in Eastern Canada. I paid by PayPal business (3% added), money transferred on a Tuesday, wheels shipped out that following Friday, and I got them about 7 days later. Everything was quick and in perfect condition. Every message I sent was answered within a few hours. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from him again. This isn't meant to discredit anyone else's experience, but just to share my own and provide updated information.

UPDATE Jan 19, 2017

Well who knows what ever happened to ROBERT DENNIS aka Used2B-sub3 he has not responded to multiple emails from my buddy who paid him in full on Dec 7-he did say he would ship it the same/next day-

He has not responded to American Express who has temporarily reimbursed the purchaser for the $300-who knows maybe something bad happened to ROBERT DENNIS the National Sales Manager for Populo/6KUat Aventon Bikes but he logged in on Dec 29th so he saw all the messages that were sent to him and did not respond.

https://www.linkedin.com/...bert-dennis-ba5b6217

Makes me wonder if Aventon Bikes know who they employ as their representatives, someone who has effectively stole $300 from a consumer in their industry-

Well AmEx has all his info including:
Aventon Bikes
18457 Railroad St
Industry, CA 91748
(866) 300-3311
Email: info@aventon.com


Why does this rub me so bad? Lack of ethics, is one reason-who risks ruining their reputation by stealing-fraud-especially if you are in the industry for $300?


Well it is now in American Expresses hands and they will deal with it-would love to be a fly on the wall when they call his last employer on LinkedIn Aventon Bikes-usually for $300 they just let it go, but when you provide them with all the information they claim they will go a step further-I hope they do!


Regards,
