I ordered a nitrous kit from this guy, said he worked at a shop in FL, but i searched for his number area code and it's up north, forgot the state. Then he told me he was staying up at the state where the number was from (I never asked why his number didn't match a FL area code) and he gave me bunch of different numbers of people who supposedly were responsible for shipping the kit.

He maintained contact with me for a while, sometimes disappearing, but then replying to an e-mail or phone call. Does anyone have more info on this guy? It's been about 3 months, I paid him $400 via paypal (according to him it was his friend's account).

I usually have no problems on this site, but this guy is really pissing me off. His name is Eric McInnis. I'm a student, and $400 is a pretty large amount for me.

watch-out ppl.

Isn't this the guy that stole a member credit card info and start purchasing other items with it?

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

Why not trace his name and get a valid address and confront him **** thats what i do :3_steam: Sorry to say this but its just another example of the Fukn people that we have here livn with us. Anyway if you filed a paypal thingy why not call paypal and figure out something they should have his address and real name and account number so they can freeze them so we cant use them anymore until its fixed.

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

Definately, I ran into that problem before, just google him and confront him. He'll probably say he's someone else. Go to the police department and file a dispute. If that don't work, do what I would do, beat his ace and spend a night in the cell. Trust me, you'll feel better afterwards. Or, call your bank that is associated with your paypal account and file a claim for the money taken out for the kit. This should get you your money back.

I just paid pinktuscani03, $1100.00 for her Motegi DPK's and wing. Don't think that I don't know what to do if I get ripped off. I'm not saying I'd go 1/2 way around the country and find her, but I got my connections to get my money back...

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

his number is (360) 710-6414
i googled him, and there are a shitload of Eric McInnis's... i'm searching. i even got a company that traces people's numbers and finds their address, but they refunded my money saying they couldn't trace the number (maybe they don't do cell phones)...
It's weird, because sometimes he comes back and communicates with me, but for the past 3 weeks he disappeared again.

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

this is the reason why i only buy from reputable long time sellers or established companies. sorry i dont have anything helpful to add, but there were 2 red flags (at least to me) in your 1st post. #1 the number didnt match his location and #2 it wasnt his name on the paypal account. at least you know what to look out for in the future and i hope it doesnt affect your desire to mod..

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

yup, i found it weird too, but he explained both...
he said he didn't have paypal, and he said he was travelling when I asked about his number. He communicated for a very long time, so I my doubt was overcome by how helpful/communicative he was.
Either way, i'm going to make a big effort to find this guy and confront him, one way or another.

PM CarrRyanE, him and a bunch of other guys in the daily work thread found some chick that scammed a few guys out of money. They might be able to find this guy too.

Re: mainetiburonracer- beware, any info?

Oh yeah, any more to that story?
Yes, there is more to the story... but I deleted the thread they were using to coordinate their information. Needless to say I was very impressed how quickly those guys tracked her down to get their money back. They're like friggin bloodhounds

Go onto their daily work threads (here's today's: http://www.newtiburon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=92805) and get them to help.
