    So anways, in four years on the boards you guys have been virtually perfect and I've had basically zero issues with any credit card issues which has been a real source of pride for me on my internet accounts.

    That said, I'd like to send out a HUGE thanks to the gentleman from South San Francisco thats now driving around with a (basically) free set of Ford GT supercar cams from me.

    I'm not naming names because I don't know if it was a stolen card or if he's just taking advantage of a shipping mistake on our part but the guy got a free set of cams and he won't answer his phones and although we managed to bill out $300.00 to the card he has also filed a claim with his card company about the charges we did manage to put through.

    I charge $418.00 for these cams, that makes COST $380.00.

    I make $38.00 on a set of those cams with the pricing we give you guys.

    I'll now have to sell $3800.00 in parts just to recoup the lost cost of those cams. :cuss:

    Seriously, If you're going to rip someone off why not go after someone who's not here to help you and is charging full retail on this stuff.

    This appears to be the first time we've had an actual case of credit card fraud in four years so it shouldn't affect the way I take care of you guys at all, I just really hope the guy that got the cams reads this and understands what this kind of thing could mean to everyone here if it continues.

    Although he may not care anyways :nonono:

    I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the 99.99% of you guys that are straight up honest hard working individuals and to let you know that I'm planning on being here for a long time to come and I'll continue to do my best for you guys on anything you need :beer:

    +1, it's really nice to have a dealer parts hookup, especially for those parts that dealers really gouge on. it's too bad there are douchebags out there that pull crap like this.

    If I knew his real name matched the one he gave me I'd be REALLY tempted to post it.

    He may have been using the name off a stolen card though so I can't.

    We'll see what happens, maybe I'll give you guys his shipping address :bash: :thumbsup:

    Steve that really blows, but don't worry something will eventually catch up to this guy and he'll probably get turned into chum for it :banana:

    As much as I appreciate the thought I'd rather just have you guys keep buying parts from me. :beer:

    It's not so much the loss of money that bothers me, it's the fact that someone felt the need to take advantage of me/us in this way.

    I do everything I can to make the dealings with you guys smooth, easy and troublefree and some idiot comes along and takes advantage of our policies.

    I'm not going anywhere and we're absulutely NOT going to let one jerk ruin things for everyone.

    We just signed up for another year on SVTP and we'll probably continue on as long as you guys keep coming to us for parts.

    You guys are the best, it's truly a pleasure working with you guys on a daily basis. :rockon:

    ya, it sucks for the people that actually get up for work every day to go somewhere that they probably hate going to just to make an honest days pay to be able to buy parts for our cars. Here comes this a**hole who decides he is better then everyone and tries to get parts for free. I hope when he installs these parts they go in wrong and he severly damages his motor!!!
