    That sucks dude. Sorry to hear about that. My advice would be to learn from it though. I won't ever buy anything from anyone on line unless they're on eBay or going through PayPal, or both. At least that way you have some recourse if they try and crap out on you. You can file complaints, get your money back, etc. I wouldn't ever send money for something via Moneygram, Western Union, whatever.

    Still though, that sucks ass man. Hope you can find a cheap tranny. LS trannies are usually cheap, but don't be tempted by that, the gear ratios suck, especially if you plan on pairing it with an H22. I'd say hold out for another B16 or Type R tranny.

    'there has been a misunderstanding, so to clear it up his username is 'kitchens' and not in any way referring to William Kitchens, who goes by the username Civicious...

    i've requested that he paste his side of the story not saying this isn't true, but there's a lot of bad "buyers" out there as well, and its only fair)

    Also, please define "moneygram". What service did you use?

    i'm not pointing fingers or accusing. just want to hear both sides before i go banning someone.

    westernunion is a REALLY bad idea though....
    its the number 2 guideline on craigslist.

    Ok heres the story! I didn't scam anyone! My father died (true story) so we were out a car and funds for a while. Then i left the country for a week and a half. . . but not for a funeral! I was out of the country fighting! My brother broke my phone while i was gone and i didn't have the money to fix it. So i was short a phone too! Due to no car, no phone, I lost my job. So i have been trying to sell my shit so i could pay him back, if i ever found him again! heres the thing, I thought you saw my shit on Craigslist. not hondaswap! I never even thought of looking for you on here! i have had tons of people call me for my things. I just try to sell things not keep track of who buys things from who? Since my phone was dead you should have sent me a message via hondaswap! not go on here and fucking call me a scammer! That was wrong of you, of course i can see why you are mad. But like i said you should have sent me a message! Im short on funds right now, i cant send the tranny until i sell something on one of my threads! Like i said, no job.

    so he sent you money for a transmission, but you don't have the money to send it?


    sounds like a scammer to me.

    I call bullshit too. Its amazing how many reasons you have for the bullshit you are putting this guy through. You dont take your wallet when you go out of town? Giving him his shit that he paid for.
