Where does Steve's message end? Is his message "I didn't skip town and I'll do whatever it takes to make it right, I'll be calling you within the next few days, talk to you soon"

and yours is the rest?

If so, its your opinion that Steve stole money from you via ebay?

Wow.

Here's hoping he got hacked. Never do anything through western union or money orders Etc. Those are all the scams. Did you try to contact him through his bobcat website or repair website. Via phone number? Same phone number on both. The phone number for the eBay seller on your link is different.

I don't know why the 1st link came up as page one but that is his bobcat snowblower page

A white pages search comes back all matching name and addres for the number on his repair pages. The number on the eBay sellers page comes back to Kingston ny instead of Poughkeepsie ny

Im having issues with Steve too. First I purchased a manual from his web page beginning of Nov. I waited till December and started calling leaving messages. He did call back and said he was having phone problems and would send it out. A week later it came, ok not a big deal. I then ordered a belt from his page Dec. Again waiting, Jan. started calling again. He called back a week or so later and said yes I have it right here, I'll send it out. It's been around 4 weeks since he replied so far. I reported his paypal so thats why he is probably done with paypal.

Sad, but Ive heard from a couple people I know that he was getting a little "slow" to respond, but they got their stuff... Im sure there were more and hence the Paypal issue.

never send money via money orders or western union unless they are family or trusted friends. not calling the guy a thief but most crooks ask for money sent that way.
hopefully the guy will come through.

He was a longstanding Guru and Parts Master of the mighty Bob-caT... he may have fallen on hard times or ?
To be honest, I might have done the same, having known his longstanding place with these machines as "Mr. Bob-caT", and having done prior business, plus having spoken with him on a couple occasions about these machines.

sorry guys guess i wasn't to clear i need some stuff for my 7hp bobcat i called steve looking for the parts he said he had them. he asked if i could send him the money western union because he might be selling his bussiness it had nothing to do with seeing anything on ebay i bought stuff off him for 5years belts etc just called him and he sent it thats all he took my money and shut off his phone i saw he was selling still on ebay with stuff he never had trying to rip off more people the only way to contact him was to send out email through ebay on a machine he was selling for 1200.00 dollars i told him i was reporting him to ebay and that was the reply i got through ebay he said he never left town but he did an two days later all his stuff dissapeared from ebay and he is no longer a register user i did this so no one else lost money i sent it western union in good faith because i bought off him all the time he decided for what reason i dont know burned me an who knows who else i wanted to get him off ebay if some one bought his stuff they would have gotten burnt too hope this clears some stuff up i was just looking out for the rest of u

Well, that was a little hard to follow, but from what I'm able to understand, it seems you got taken by a guy you trusted because you have been doing business with him for quite a while.

I hope things get sorted out for you.

this was the emial i got back after telling steve i was going to report him to ebay the only way to get awhole of him was to ask a question on ebay on the machine he was selling for 1200.00 in hpe he would responed an he did but it was a big lie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, that's enough of that.
Autumn, your warning about the seller has been given.
Now you are just repeating yourself.
Also, no one can understand you because you refuse to use punctuation, which is highly annoying.

If you hear more from him, feel free to start a new thread.
Please use commas and periods next time.

Thread closed.
