    Chris Goodwin .... coupeCorona

    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.

    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....

    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,

    Josh"

    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....

    http://www.sccoa.com/forums/showthread.php?t=75595

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

    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 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

    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!!

    Kuda, have you moved on this at all? Did you call the sheriff? If so, do you have the number?

    Angry I got taken too

    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!!!

    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.

    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?"

    "Yep."

    "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.
