Chris Goodwin posted a reply on the "parts for sale " forum saying he had the part I was looking for, a door moulding, and that it was in good shape. After a few questions I sent him the money by paypal. No part was delivered. He also didn't answer any emails sent to him. Obviously running a scam.

We agreed that i would purchase a thermostat housing from him, i asked if he could send it overnight mail he agreed, i paid for the item and shipping 1 week ago, thermostat housing never arrived.asked me to message him if it does not arrive, i have sent 2 more messages and he does not answer, even though he has come into the forum.

His reply on 3/31/06: "yes, i will get to it tonight i have to work an double in a few minutes! so please send the money through paypal and i will get that stuff out to you asap. thanks chris"

His reply on 4/5/06 when I asked status: "i havent been i muskegon in a couple of days the wife said that she sent all the stuff that i need out? will you give me your address to make sure she sent it to the right place. thanks chris"

My reply to that on 4/5/06: "Sure....

Josh Studrawa

If she hasn't, I may need to get it overnighted from someone else, so if you can please verify for me."

No response to that, so I send on 4/7/06: "Any verification from the wife?"

No response, so on 4/10/06 I ask: "Hey man, I haven't received anything yet, can you verify HOW it was sent and WHEN?

If I don't get it in a couple days, I'll need to buy it overnight from a remanufacturer. I can't have my car down this long, it's costing me daily."

He replies to that on 4/10/06: "you should have it by now, i have the # at work in my box i will run there reall quick and make sure it is there. will right yopu back soon"

I wait a day and a half, so on 4/11/06 I file a paypal dispute and send this to him: "Just to let you know, I have filed a dispute with Paypal for non-receipt of goods.

I hold no ill-will, but I will not pay for goods I never got. If they do reach me, I will at that time gladly pay you (odd thing is, I still want the transaction to go thru as we discussed).

If you find it is simply because you have been too busy to send them yet, them please be mindful of this when making a deal with someone.

My point is that I thought I would have my car running by now and I have yet to even get my parts. I am just disappointed more than anything.

Take care,


So on 4/21/06 I get this from paypal (since he never bothered to respond to paypal, I had to wait the full 10 days): "We have completed our investigation of this case. We attempted to process a refund from the seller's account to your account. Unfortunately, the seller's account does not contain the funds necessary to cover this refund. We were able to recover $0.00 USD. We have taken action against the seller and are working to recover the remainder of your refund. We will contact you when we have more information. No further action is required of you at this time."

What irritates me the most is that he knew I needed the brakes to get the car running and I was paying for a rental.. daily. Then the "wife" excuse got me worried. Plus on 4/1/06, I wish I had read this thread about him taking 10 days to ship a part....


Them's the facts, backed up by PM's if anyone wants access to my account here to verify.


04-25-2006, 08:13 PM
same thing happened here. except now he said item was returned to him and that he would be sending a refund, that was 6 days ago.. i got the same result with paypal also..
Shocked this board actually does not ban him

04-25-2006, 10:08 PM
coupecorona aka chris goodwin

i sent him money by paypal on april 1st. never got the money or the parts. seems like he is a scam artist as there are other complaints against him.

I was looking for a set of heads for my sc and i posted an add here , Chris contacted me said he had a set for 225 shipped to nova scotia canada, wow what a deal , then he asked for a cheque or western union, hahahaha :confused: Then I happenend to find the good seller , bad seller list on here . thank you SCCOA . I don't know if he is a scam or just having problems with shipping , but at this point it looks like a scam . He has'nt come on to defend his reputation either.

This is the info on him
Chris Goodwin

485 Glen Oaks Dr
Muskegon, MI 49442-7328
(231) 777-2240
This info is correct since i called and spoke to a woman there verifing it. he was not home.. i called his cell with no answer. I have cousins that live about 45 minutes away from him. I work as a process server for pcs..one of the officers got all this info for me.. they think if everyone ripped off by him was to report him to the locale sheriff, its still considered internet fraud and punishable.(which seems to be atleast 4 people) they will send someone to his home and investigate the matter.. or my cousins can pay a visit to his home.
Still shocked he is not banned by the people that run this forum

04-27-2006, 04:02 PM
What is the number for the local sheriff? I will gladly call.

04-27-2006, 11:24 PM
Well guys he got me to evidently, only 10 bucks though. He gave me an address of 147 Patterson Muskegon, MI 49442 but anywho lists
Goodwin, Chris 485 Glen Oaks Dr Muskegon, MI 49442 231-777-2240 The addresses are a couple of miles apart. Any body local to there?
I guess we all learned a valuable lesson to check this forum first. Catch you later, Bob.

05-03-2006, 03:12 PM
I had a semi local guy try to screw me outta $300 for some seats on another forum, To make a long story short, I sent him a money order and he was to ship me two 35th anniversary camero seats for my s-10. after two months and countless emails i decided to pay him a visit. After all he was less than 100 miles from home. When I got there I realized that he had moved. I used a site that I use regullarly for work to locate the guy and found a new address about 9 miles from the old one. Imagine the look on his face when I hit his door. There I was, driving my dads Mercury Grand Marquis, wearing very nice dress clothes with my ruger 45 on my hip and my NC Special Investigtor badge on my belt. For some reason he didn't argue with me and refunded my money on the spot along with an additional $100 for my travel and time. The site i refered to which has been very accurate for me in the past is www.zabasearch.com. About 90% of the time it will pull up a good address for the person you are looking for and its free. Thats my story!!

05-04-2006, 01:48 PM
Kuda, have you moved on this at all? Did you call the sheriff? If so, do you have the number?

05-05-2006, 02:34 AM
He stated he had a great 94 crankshaft for $85 shipped. When he sent me his contact info I sent him the paypal payment. I have gotten similar email responses that others have recieved from him about working, shipping problems and it should be there any day. This has delayed my move to NY as my cleaned and painted engine sits on my kitchen floor instead of in My Bird. Lets do whatever we can to put a stop to this guy and get our hard earned money back!!!

05-05-2006, 09:30 AM
OKay, the 231-777-2240 is disconnected.

The 231-767-8362 was answered by a young lady who said Chris was not available, but she'd let him know I called.

05-05-2006, 09:34 AM
Okay, now we're getting somewhere....

"Hi, this is Josh again, sorry to bother you. I'm trying to send Chris an crank sensor for a Supercoupe and I didn't get his zip code. I have 485 Great Oaks..."

"Oh no, that's wrong. It's 147 Patterson, 49442."

"Oh, thanks! That's Muskegon?"


"Thanks, take care!"

His address....

Chris Goodwin (who knows about the last name)
147 Patterson
Muskegon MI 49442

Calling local sheriff now. Local sheriff forwarded me to the Detective Bureau, where I left a message. Will post more when I get more info.

So refund my money. I don't need the moulding I had bought and paid for from you. I got it from someone else. So send me back my $35.

05-08-2006, 04:52 PM

I haven't received anything as of 5/15/06.

I figure I'll give him thru Friday then call the detectives again.

05-21-2006, 09:03 PM
i was waiting for the banked overtime i put away so the money will be sent out to you guys this week. sorry i havent got back to you.

05-22-2006, 10:10 AM

Still no money from him! Almost 2 months now.


Gerry Rider
05-22-2006, 12:39 PM
I see he's back on the parts for sale forum trying to unload some stuff. Still haven't gotten my money back.

05-23-2006, 07:46 PM
first of all how are you, and i love how everyone has to put there two cents in to get more stuff started. i am not a person to steal or rob people as i said before. J studrawa his check was out on monday, jeffery matko injectors are out on friday and garry riders is out on wensday. i am making the effort into paying these guys back

05-24-2006, 08:14 PM
what no one else have anything to say? garry yours was out this morning you should be recieving it soon. i am doing my best to get them out as soon as i can. just wondering if the admin has anyhting to say also, sence everyone has to put in there two cents.

05-26-2006, 03:56 PM
lowflying90 i have your injectors they will be out on monday, my driver is running alittle late. so they will be out first thing monday morning.

05-30-2006, 10:46 AM

I don't have much to say except that...

1. I received a check from Stephanie on Friday. I will bring it to the bank tonight via the atm.

2. I take exception to the "we don't need the police, we can handle this like me" line. In NO WAY did you handle yourself like a man. The proverbial "man" is strong, honorable, and follows thru on his word. A "man" would have notified people that a product would ship late. A "man" would have not ignored emails, PM's, and even the dispute notices from Paypal. A "man" would have taken care of the situation long before the authorities had to be called, a "man" doesn't need to be threatened with punishment to do the right thing.

So I see one side of this situation being handled like men. We waited. We contacted. We waited. We posted. We waited. Then finally we were forced to call the police, which I did not want to do.

I do thank you for making things right (well, when the check goes thru) but please don't try to get indignant or self-righteous. Say sorry, make it right, and let it all fall into the past.

05-30-2006, 09:29 PM
as i wrote on here plenty of times, i was not going to argue on the internet about what was going on over and over again. i said i did not know where my parts are and nothing was going to happen until i got my parts back! i understand were you guys are coming from but also i did not want to get ripped off nieghter. i was saying sorry simply to appoligize for the long wait.

evryone else your check will be out soon.

05-31-2006, 10:25 AM
were my injectors shipped out yet?

06-03-2006, 10:38 AM
alright i recevied the injectors and one of them is bad, the little screen in the bottom looks like it is bent in. i am goin to see in anyone has one laying arounf this weekend and if i cant i will send you your money on monday.

garry you should have yours any day now. everyone else your money is coming.

06-05-2006, 10:08 PM
just send them to me and give me $5 back. i'd be fine with that.

i just need them asap.


06-07-2006, 07:16 PM
i will have them shipped out on thursday when and if i get out early enough. i have been out of town for the last couple of days and i have to be back in at 430 thats why i cant have them shipped right away. plus i need to fing out what you want to do do about the bad inj.

06-08-2006, 10:15 AM
it's been 3 MONTHS NOW. just send them out. it's not that difficult. give me a $5 refund inside the package and end this ordeal already. either that or give me a full refund. at this point i don't care any more. give me my money or parts.

06-13-2006, 02:28 PM
i will send the money out tuesday

06-16-2006, 10:38 PM
it's friday. haven't got anything as of yet. i will post back if and when i do.


Gerry Rider
06-17-2006, 08:30 AM
Are you going to refund my $35 ??? I thought for a while this whole thing was going honest, but maybe not.

06-23-2006, 10:27 PM
i've had about enough of this. still no money. i'm going to be contacting the sheriff or filing mail fraud shortly.


06-27-2006, 04:24 PM
