Bonsai stole my Lap 3

Back in early Feb, I sent Bonsai my Lap3 UC. We had agreed on a price and I said I would give him his money back if it didn't work out for him. It sounded like he would paypal the day that I put it in the mail. In an effort to be a good guy, I put it in the USPS, with tracking number, 2/13. Long story shorter, he has not responded to me, emails, PMs or the threads, in weeks AND HAS YET TO GIVE ME ANY MONEY or send the UC back to me. It's been a month and half!! He came off as "stand up" when he wanted my UC and even in his Ethanol thread....but it appears he's NOT!

It's been a couple weeks since responded to his "Boosting Ethanol over 10%" thread he started, or the "Lap 3 Questions" thread he found me on.

All I want is the money, or my UC back so I can sell it to someone who will pay for it!!

Indeed. You would think I'd learned. I got screwed a few times on a Dodge Stealth forum over a few years. Thankfully this is not "life-changing" money huge. Just shitty that people will do this. I would be embarrassed and ashamed.

Some people do not have a conscience or any sense of shame. These same people are usually sociopaths. They cannot feel like real people.

Let's see if this gets his attention. If not he's definitely a sociopath.

The character you mention is an idiot and a would-be comedian...I blocked him after a day of seeing his tripe. Sounds like you should have!

Is he from the Seattle area?

No he's down in Arkansas, I believe. I have his address, obviously. I don't want to accuse Bonsai of ripping me off, but he hasn't gotten back to me in a few weeks, even when I addressed him in his thread.

Just trying to get attention. I'll be happy to apologize if/when he steps up.

He's probably lurking under a different alias.
