Don't buy from this guy...

Sold me a TWM shift knob and described it as "perfect", "like new", "scratch free".
When I received the box I noticed right away that everything was loose inside. No packing material whatsoever. Just the knob and 6 or 7 metal pieces banging into each other in the original TWM box. Of course the knob got damaged and there were numerous scratches, dings and marks (maybe they were already there).
Sent him a few pictures and told him I want to return it or at least partial refund. He blamed it on USPS and told me he would file an insurance claim. I told him it was his fault for not wrapping the knob. Didn't hear from him after that. Almost 2 weeks and 10 texts with no reply.

So I filed a Paypal claim and in the process of returning it. Paying top dollar for a TWM knob expecting MINT, you see where I'm coming from.

I was surprised that he would just flat out ignore me. Maybe he's just a kid.

Gotta love PayPal's Buyer Protection. I once purchased a set of Volks (described like-new condition, etc) and they were probably the worst set of wheels I have ever seen in person. One of the wheels had been damaged, and "repaired" except it was 19x9.9 instead of 19x9.5 lol. None of that was even disclosed to me by the seller.Needless to say, PayPal sided with me and I received my $2200 back.

Anyways OP, glad to hear you filed a claim. Looks like he left you a negative iTrader score? You should contact a moderator to fix that. Not cool
