    UPDATE: I "bought" these from this guy and unfortunately found out I was being scammed. His phone number is 951-229-7306. He's from California and runs consistent scams on tons of forums. He uses different names but usually Voorhies as a last name. He only took me for $100 but admitted that he got another guy for $400 on the same day. For whatever reason he came clean to me and apologized. (That's not to say he refunded me) But I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

    DON'T SEND MONEY WESTERN UNION!

    AND... Remember what your momma told you.. If it sounds too good to be true... It usually is.

    Voorhies?

    Like Jason Voorhies? Like Jason Voorhies from the Friday the 13th films?

    That should have been a giveaway right there. Never buy anything from a guy named Voorhies.

    Well im fu**ed! I am the idiot who just got ripped off for 413.00 dollars. I got so excited yesterday after buying these wheels finally for my truck and jumped on impulse. What is worse is that my wife is really pissed at me. I have been wanting these wheels for a while and finally saved up the little bit I had to get these and now have to start all over. To the guy that ripped me off, GFY I am in the military and have lots of connections. You will get caught you little POS. I have served my country for many years now and this is what I get from scumbags like yourself that can't get a real mans job like everyone else on this forum and earn an honest living.

    I almost scammed by this guy too. I insisted that we use paypal and I was willing to wait til his paypal is back up again.

    Sorry to the guys that got scammed.

    espd, i would call the cops man, seriously. especially if the guy admitted it to john that he scammed him...see if you can get that message from john and take that to the cops. i'm sure there's a way to track this guy down with ISP #'s and stuff. Don't let him get away with it. And, thanks for serving our country! Good luck man.

    I don't think the cops are going to do much about online scams. Best bet is to get a few local members together and pay this kid and his family a visit.

    There has to be something that can be done? You have the phone number, can the police find out who and where the number is registered and proceed from there? This really pisses me off.

    He's probably using the money to help out a Nigerian prince who is in a tight spot. I got an email from him today too.

    What a low life douche cookie. I hate to see people get taken on an honest web site.

    Wait, he told you flat out that he ripped you off, and also that he ripped someone else off? How did he say it?
