Just joined the forum a few days ago and noticed the link to a set of TRD Anthracite wheels on Toyota Nation. I'd been looking for them for a while and contacted the seller. He didn't have paypal and after talking several times on the phone and trying to find a better solution I finally submitted to sending a deposit via Western Union. ($100) He agreed to ship the wheels and get me a tracking #. It smelled rotten from the word "Go" but I've been searching for these for so long that I let my better judgment take a back seat. Needless to say the tracking info never came. I did some searching and found that he has done this before.
So I just wanted to give everyone a heads up and hopefully save them from going through this.
He goes by Alex, Richard, etc Voorhies. He says he lives in Rocklin, or Menifee or somewhere in California but he's actually from San Diego. He's running scams on tons of forums with different names every day and only accepting payment through western union. He's very polite on the phone but sounds young. He rarely posts photos in his sale threads because he doesn't actually have the merchandise. He'll email you pics that he's gotten from google search. A little research can save you a lot of money and his sales are ALWAYS $500 or less.
