Trepidhelp Ripped Me Off

Well, spoke with Paypal again today, and good ol' TrepidHelp only has $105 in his account. So, the BS story he is giving about PayPal not giving up the funds is a load is crap!!!

TrepidHelp(Frank), at this point, all I can say is that your a little G-Dog, dirtbag ****! Thanks for ripping off $245 from a guy who is trying to support his wife and 9 month old son. Like I said before, its not everyday I can treat myself. So I decide to do something nice for my car, and I get ripped off by a dirtbag SOB like yourself. Thanks Frank. I hope your fellin' good.

Frank, one thing to note, it will come back and get you one way or another. I believe in karma, and your loaded with bad karma.

About PayPal, they are a national(maybe international) business. I just can't believe the fact that they would take my money for no reason. I don't want to hear that F'in story.

Randy and all DI.Net moderators, I vote to ban this little crook. He does not deserve to belong to such a great organization such as DI.Net. He is a crook and if you look, he is also ripping off another member of ours.

Frank, I'm no gangster, I'm not going to hunt you down, but just think of what your doing. If your a man, than man up and give me my damn money.

For all DI.Net members, here is a pic of Frank and one of his cars. It has a tag numbers, so if we have any friendly smokies out there, run it and bust 'em. I found them on his Yahoo photo album:

This probably would have been better if you e-mailed a moderator or Randy directly.

My advice would be to collect as much information and records that you can and present them to the authorities in your state and his. It should be easy enough to prove that he promised a product and failed to deliver after you paid for it.

to make a long story short, sent TrepidHelp $350 via Paypal. After a month of nothing, he told me that PayPal was holding his funds. I told him no deal, so he agreed to no deal; said he contacted PayPal. Talked to PayPal today, he received the funds and they recovered what was left for me, which was $105.

So, no rims for me and he made out with $245. PayPal is "investigating". Whatever that is worth. I trusted someone, too much obviously, and got burned. I just won't be buying anything unsecured like that again. Even though I thought PayPal offered me security.......it sucks, I'm not loaded with money to burn. I just wish there was something I could do.

Well to be quite honest, I would simply have his IP located right back to his mother's house. Or whoever else he is living off of. I haven't the slightest clue as to why this kid is throwing something up, as if someone from Baltimore would actually know what it means. Either way, I know first hand how easy kids like that get caught.

Titleist,
Sorry it had to happen to you, but don't count yourself out yet man.

well Mav, when you've received no response to emails and PM's.....plus it been almost 2 months for me. He told me PayPal wasn't giving up his money. I talk to PayPal, they tell me he's received the money and there is only $105 in his account. So, he DID receive my money and HAS already spent some.

OR, he owed some chump from a previous PayPal scam of his, and when my money hit his account, it went to pay off that debt. Maybe thats why his account was on hold.

Bottom line, the kid has offered no response and seems to have abandoned the issue.

Thanks Mav. BTW, have you seen TrepidHelp even attempt to defend himself yet? Just try getting ripped off by some punk and tell me how you feel. Not to be dick, but believe, I am valid. I am a professional, have a wife and kid, came from a strong family background. Its just hard for a person of my caliber to put up with **** like this. Like said before, the money IS one thing, but getting ripped off hurts the most......
