    You need to search before you buy. The Kenwood KVT-911DVD retails for $2400.

    Also, getting him back is stupid. He frauded you, call his local police department and tell them, also research the product b/c that would have been a red-flag there.

    BTW, good luck dealing with him.

    Damn I got burned in the past too, it sucks. Use paypal with there money back garuntee which is 3 dollars. You can also report him to the ifcc but they usually do shit about it anyway...

    Has anyone ever used escrow.com? Is it as soon as the stuff is delivered, the person gets there money or am i allowed to examine the products?

    BTW, you should roam through those baceball cards, there might be a mickey mantle rookie card :)

    escrow is good and legit- but its NOT cheap to use. its a good 10% plus 3% if using a credit card

    When someone does that, you can file a report but he gives a valid tracking # then it's really his word against yours and most of the time it gets thrown out of court. I F$CKING HATE SCAMMERS!!!!

    so you thought you were getting a stereo but he sent baseball cards? the whole point of cod is so you can inspect stuff before you buy it.

    somebody tried to rip me off for like 400 bucks for a widebody kit, i sent him the money and didn't get anything so after calling his police and my police deparments about 5 times my police finally got a detective and tracked the guy down, if they give you their adress then you can do this also, its just pretty time consuming (me about 2 months)
