      Were these products sold without recieving payment?

      that just doesnt sound like a good idea…

      I have dealt with John before and I don’t get the idea he would send out product without payment first, unless it was an exchange. From my modest intelligence and reading comprehension skills, the title would tell me he received payment for the items before sending them out.

      He probably sent out the items and then got a charge back from the credit card company because of fraudulent use of a credit card, stolen credit card or something along those lines. In the end, he got screwed…..it’s tough enough to keep a business afloat in the karting industry with honest customers.

      That’s messed up if you can’t afford it don’t try and scheme people to get what you want. I work hard so I can afford to buy. Good luck trying to bring them to justice.
