Also, if he just had his debit card stolen or whatever, I bet he's got a ton of financial problems on his plate right now... I think if he was trying to rip you off he wouldn't have responded to this thread at all.

So then why wont he at least return the sway bar? If he cant pay for it, the only logical and ethical thing to do would be to send it back - not screw over a fellow SG member.

None of that is my issue troll. I have enough of my own problems to deal with. I either want the bar back or the payment.

And how about the three weeks my paypal account was frozen and I could not conduct any business online? That caused me to fall behind on my bills because I couldnt sell anything.

I understand your frustration... I was simply offering possible explanations, not making excuses.

I said I would try to contact him, and I am. I'm just trying to help. I know you've done a lot of good on here, and if I can help resolve this I will. Also, my name is Mark, not troll lol.

You should just tell him to mail the money order, I have a feeling that Gabe isn't going to give up the new paypal that easy...I wouldn't.

Steve, I know you got flamed pretty hard on here and I know crap happens, but you should give Gabe a call and send him the money. I think that's all everybody wants to see and I'm sure you guys can work it out. Sometimes an earnest live (not email or posted) apology is all that needs to be given, and money owed of course, to make things right.

WOAH This got exciting! LOL I was in fact busy with school. *UTI* and i have no job, which i stated, that is why i took so long. I only had enough money for gas and food. I had to do some side jobs, (fixing computers) in order to get the money. So yeah sucks not having a job. Everything Had been sorted out, and yes i even talked to Gabe on the phone when this happened. I guess patients and communications was a lack.

But remember my bank account was "hacked" for fraud charges, and so the bank took over to take care of that, so i wasn't able to do anything either. So no i was not a TROLL or Scamming anyone, just the situation took A LOT longer than i expected.

What ever had been said about me I fully understand where it cam from, but now it will be sorted out, I hope we can go back to normal.

And thanks for those who tried to help, and not think of me as a "TROLL".

Gabe, I was trying to help you. I don't know if steve got back to you because I talked to him or not... He's a grownup and makes his own decisions. The usefulness and sensibleness of my comment is irrelevant. My intentions were good, and middle-school grade name calling doesn't belong on this forum.

It's hard to just drop and forget what has happened. If you say you want to help this forum don't go around and backstab people in this forum. I guaranteed it will be hard to trust you as a reliable buyer from now on. That's just my opinion. Things like this shouldn't be avoided for that long and there is no excuses. There are many ways you could of contact Gabe and give him an update. Call, Text, Email, FB, SG,...etc.. If you have time to post on FB you have time to contact Gabe. Sorry, didn't mean to sound like a dick but its the truth.

As many times Gabe tries to help our platforms I been on here long enough to see many people screwing with him. But, he never gives up and shows what type of person he is.

I totally agree, sometimes i just forget to message him, but yeah I understand. as i mentioned communication lack. Yeah, theres always that trust thing for online, and technically it wasnt my fault, the only thing that made this worse was i had lack of communication and money. But thanks for staying on top of this situation, as i know if we do get an actual Scam or "troll" we have members to help.

This is what I mean by lack of communication. Steve you told me 2 days ago or was it three days ago you had the money and you were going to pay me. I gave you my paypal address. I havent received payment as of 9/23/2012 at 1:26pm eastern time. Paypal is rpotter@maine.rr.com
