Title: Is it just me or does it seem like the scammers are getting out of control?
Post by: HarrisFD on November 03, 2017, 03:54:50 PM
Messaged the vendor "427 King" on the obvious ,  no response.

I've seen several complaints about other "prominent" vendors' shady practices lately (Made in USA stickers over "made in taiwan labels", continuously out of stock on a part so they can sell  "house" version,  advertising high quality part and sending crap, etc)

Between that and all of the scam cars out there, it's really discouraging.

He is misinformed...that looks like a Firebird style square bar.

I'd believe that if he took listing down or corrected it after I messaged him on the fact that its a firebird bar and not a camaro.

427 King is a member on all the sites and has an enormous amount of parts. He has some great cars also. His knowledge is vast. I have purchased a couple things in the past and they were fine. Could have just been a quick over site with thousands of parts for sale at any given time. Danny

Hey Danny, how you been? Long time no post.

As usual, buyer beware, do the research.

I was on Ebay and bidded on some parts that were modified to the point of no repair. My bids were rejected and I wondered what they based their value on. Must have been this vendors store.
