I cant belive , more people cant see how wrong the way you guys are treating this guy is.  I only hope that if I ever have a deal that goes south on the other side of the world . That someone over there would step up and help a fellow BMXer out. This is disturbing sad

Fack...if anyone was seriously able to help I am sure they would...this is just what happens with public call out threads all the time.

Re: Anyone actually live near/visit former member Dirty Habits?

If there was an easy solution it would have presented itself already. I don't know Dirty or where he lives..,so what do you want me to find out, track him down and solve this??? Is that the right way??? If resolution is found everyone here will be happy etc. it's not like it's a site full of complete aholes...

Re: Anyone actually live near/visit former member Dirty Habits?

It just seems that Dirty was here for a long time and did alot of deals on here . He has buds on here and you know who you are. Give Dirty a call and ask him to contact this guy. big_smile

Re: Anyone actually live near/visit former member Dirty Habits?

I honestly don know if he did have a lot of buds here. A lot of people knew who he was and interacted with him but he seemed to be a guy who flew on the solo side most of the time, but I dot know him so I can't say that for sure.

I never saw him on an SD ride, only saw that he'd post pix of riding the day before all of us rode. I've been on here since 2008 and never met him in person.

We rarely interacted on here and when we did, we usually had a clash of opinions. We'd even joke about agreeing w/each other on the rare occasion it happened.

I've no opinion of him other than I found the bold type annoying as hell, and the phase he went through w/the giant smiley face signature caused me to turn off pix in my sig line.

I don't know if he was a good guy, a bad guy, misunderstood, a genius, I know nothing of him.

I don't know why he was banned.

I do hope you get your money back.

Just because someone interacts with a guy on a internet forum does not mean that they know him. Even if both parties have been here for a long time, even if they had a buyer/seller relationship. If I had any way to contact him I would, and I am sure that the other members here would do the same. The OP seems to have Dirtys info. And like I said before, he should call the proper authorities. At this point that seems to be all that can be done.


If that fails call this guy,


Who's the black private d!ck
That's a sex machine to all the chicks?
SHAFT!
Ya damn right!

Who is the man that would risk his neck
For his brother man?
SHAFT!
Can you dig it?

Who's the cat that won't cop out
When there's danger all about?
SHAFT!
Right On!

They say this cat Shaft is a bad mother
SHUT YOUR MOUTH!
I'm talkin' 'bout Shaft.
THEN WE CAN DIG IT!

He's a complicated man
But no one understands him but his woman
JOHN SHAFT!

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  lol

Did you manage to catch up with him, please do let me know?

I met a LOT of people at the show (lots of them I've met for the first time) but didn't see Dirty Habits. What is his real name anyway? There were literally a thousand people at the show. Finding the guy who types like this would be darn near impossible.

This is what you should do. You have his address, right? Call the San Diego police and file a police report. Tell them what transpired and also give them his address, full name, phone number, etc. You may not get your money back, but at least they will have his name on their record.

Also, I hate to say this, but part of it is your mistake as well. You need to evaluate the situation and decide if it is worth sending back merchandise to someone several continents away, outside paypal's buyer protection policy, to a bold / italics typing guy sporting a neck hickey who goes by the alias "Dirty Habits" in Chicano Park across the Pacific. Now ask yourself..... why did you trust someone so easily? Not to mention that he has been banned for a short period of time prior to his perma-ban, which should've been a red flag. Sorry and good luck..... sad

He bought a part off of me, and paid withan account
registered to some woman. Ship to address was to a woman.
I thought it was a bit shady, but it was only twenty bucks.

That just says he has a sugar momma that supports his expensive habits. That or he lives at home with his mother and she funds them...

Re: Anyone actually live near/visit former member Dirty Habits?

Sorry man wish I could help as I actually dealt with him personally when we traded mags.
That was at least a year ago so I do not have his number anymore. I dont know him well enough to say that he is the kind of guy to pull some shady stuff, but thats what it looks like right now.. but again, who knows.
When we traded info and met up, there was nothing shady at all, just traded and that was it. I hope you can recover your cash.

Definitely appreciate the support here, I got that feeling about him as soon as there was an issue with the items in questions, which were purchased using a BIN on this site.

But given his feedback I just didn't feel the need to be overly cautious. He had a tonne of positives, which just goes to show, feedback isn't everything.

The police in El Cajon are emailing me updates after I got in contact with them. Hopefully something comes of their investigation.

Real name is Frank from what I can make out. Other people on here know, but they're not talking it seems. But the police will soon find more, or bust the woman whose shipping address he uses for mail fraud. I spoke with her initially, and she seemed genuinely concerned about the deal.

I agree part of this is my fault - the feedback won me over though. That and that the refund deal was partly brokered by a mod here after some disagreement with 'Frank', so I felt reasonably confident that it would go through OK. He was actually in contact too, right up until the ban.

The dumb thing about that guy though is that he posted pics of his workplace, himself etc. on the site. That and he's basically hung some woman he knows out to dry by using her address.

Regardless of what happens, I doubt she'll appreciate a mail fraud charge much, and then pass that on to him. Hell hath no fury, and all that...

Thanks to all the guys who've wished me well with this, I really do appreciate this. It definitely restores a bit of my faith in the community.

The police never do anything.  I have seen 100 of these threads.  I wish that there was something bad that happens to scammers, but they are always scot free.

PLUS 1000...if you harass him at his place of employment...this will most likely work.  Nobody want to look like a dbag at work

This gets my vote.  Hey let's all call. lol


LOL Pathetic is having to get a new account because you are afraid of your wife...  Your turn kitten balls.  smile

Getting your wife to beg for cheap Hutch grips for your "bday" is pathetic when you are too cheap to pay the going rate

If you are OK with your actions why the concerted effort to hide what happened?

Don't screw over those you tell your secrets...its not talkin shit if it's TRUE.
