1.otaining monies by deception, police will arrest but probably wont get anything right away,
2small claims court as a concerned group effort again though will also cost to do,
3rd option pay him polite visit as a group and come away with parts and cash all being well not saying beat him up or hurt him in anyway but the fact that 3/4 people turn up might push him in right direction

only issue with that is has anyone of you met or seen him

We could do with a phone number. As John has said that might help if we can talk to him.

The name I have is Steven Drain.
Similar to Austen Mclean.
Both sound like Porn Stars.

Well the cheque was for the Austen name. It was signed just it bounced.

The bank just basically returned it saying "it bounced".

I got in touch with this chap and he apologised, said he would "sort it out".

On a later occasion he offered to swap the xtr cranks and headset. I said no and wanted the sum of money that was originally agreed.

Then it went quiet for a week. Then I chased him and he said he was working on it.

Then quiet ever since.

I fear that this will be the last of this incident. I really doubt unles youve paid by paypal we will never see this money/items.

Sad thing is this kills the trust element of trading with members on retrobike. I'm used to sending stuff on delivery of payment (pretty much)

In this case I sent his cheque to the bank with item to him. Bad decision on my part.
