    Buyer Beware Jimmy Hoffa (Patric Miller)

    Jimmy Hoffa agreed to sell me this Blowsion Girdle Bolt Kit (http://www.pwctoday.com/showthread.php?t=461863) for $90 including shipping via USPS small box flat rate. 5 days after Paypaling the funds, he contacts me and says he needs another $17 to ship it. I told him its only $6.80 to ship via USPS small flat rate box, which is what was agreed upon. After going back and forth he finally ships the item as previously agreed. I receive the item and there are no washers with it and one of bolts has been replaced with a used carbon steel one that is not even the correct thread. Additionally, one of the lower bolts is galled internally and the longer bolts will not thread cleanly into it. I was able to clean up the lower bolt and make it functional. Keep in mind this was advertised as new. I sent numerous texts and he finally replies after I threaten to leave negative feedback. His response was " You got it for half price, No further contact permitted, bye." New from Blowsion this is a $100 item, which is who I should have purchased it from. Now I have to special order a replacement bolt just to make this "new" kit functional. Lesson learned. I see he has a lot of items posted for sale on this forum. Buyer beware, he does not represent his items fairly, and definitely isn't concerned with making anything right. BTW, his profile says he is 60yrs old, judging from his actions and speak, I'd say he is some young punk kid.

    Re: Buyer Beware Jimmy Hoffa (Patric Miller)

    Here is a picture of the correct bolt and the one that was included. The thing that really chaps me, is that I specifically asked about the 6th bolt, because it wasn't in the pictures.

    Oh, I'm fully aware of the price....I couldn't get ahold of Blowsion that week, because they were at the Word Finals and the next week was Surf Jam. I wanted to get my ski back together and thought I could get the bolt kit here in a few days and save $15...boy was I wrong!

    First off he has no idea what he is doing, and secondly, he is not willing to fix his own damn errors....
    And that about says it all....

    Re: Buyer Beware Jimmy Hoffa (Patric Miller)

    Nice....bait and switch. What a bunch of crap. Thanks for letting everyone know. I had my eye on a few items he had listed here over the past few months. No longer interested....
    2001 Superjet; R&D, Blowsion, UMI, Riva, Wetwolf, Ocean Pro.

    1987 650sx: Mariner, UMI, Neo Designes, R&D, Jetsports, Renthal, Hydro-Turf, Skat-Trak, Reworked stock pipe, 40mm carb, Wetwolf F/S cone.

    1986 JS300; lots of mods, fast for a 300...I think

    1987 X2: Rips pretty good and has some 80's flare.
