- Had one good transaction, and then sent money for wheels as a second transaction. It's been 2 months and I haven't received a refund or the wheels. Claims he has no time to ship. - Karl Schuttler (freixenet)

- He took my money for what he claimed were mint parts. 'minty vario covers' (original thread for reference http://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/read.php?2,2918933,2918933#msg-2918933). He didn't send the parts. I e-mailed him. He said he'd send the parts. He didn't. I opened a PayPal dispute just before the 45 day claim period was up. He still didn't send the parts. I escallated the dispute to a claim after giving him a week. He finally sent the parts. I get them 2 months later and they are anything buy mint. One of two covers will work. The second cover is trash. Buyer Beware. - sk8bones
- Bought an A3 flywheel off him in Sept '11. Said his motor went missing and refunded my money. PM's me 3 days later saying his neighbor stole the motor and he got it back. Said I could still have the flywheel if I wanted. So I paypal'd him at the same address as I did before. He e-mails me the next day saying to paypal him under a new paypal e-mail address because his account is under review from paypal because someone has a claim out on him. He says he can't refund me because his account is locked. Refused to communicate further. I can't cancel the payment because I sent as personal payment by accident instead of for services. Do not buy from this kid. Very shady. - Shobeaker
- I Bought an A3 motor from him and was told I was going to get tracking info on it the next day. I waited a week no emails or anything so I filed a claim on him and got a nasty reply saying I was trying to scam him. He decided to get a new Paypal and, when I won the claim I was only refunded half of my money! Deal with him at your own risk. - Puch_man78

- Made lots of posts about different things for sale. Had pictures etc. Sent him a partial payment for a part. Said he would get back to me the next day with a shipping quote and never did. Two weeks later I'm filing a paypal claim. He's been talking to people I know about other parts he has "for sale" just yesterday which would put him still talking to others but not responding to me at 2 weeks. I sent multiple emails, made a very cordial post trying to get in touch with him on MA and waited very patiently. NOTHING. People in SF say they aren't familiar with him. He's continuing to log into MA but still not responding to me. DO NOT send Nick Ebert any money. If you do certainly do not send it as a gift, send it as payment for goods so you have recourse - imthepilot

- Beware of this guy. I Listed a request for some Tomos parts and he PMd me right away. Had a few day long conversation via PM and ironed out details. Sent him a Postal Money Order to cover cost. Only sent MO because of the low price for the random parts. Received confirmation of receipt of payment and have spent 2 months trying to get the parts. No longer acknowledges emails, PMs or phone calls. Payed another seller for the parts after waiting 7 weeks with no response to any attempted contact. All I want is my money back. - Kevin Carl
- I can't believe I just got here to put this guy's name on the list and he's already here. Fuckin' A. Same deal, I spent a while conversing back and forth with him and he assured me over the phone that he was a "stand up guy" and wasn't going to screw me over. That should have been the first warning sign. He also "didn't have a camera" so he couldn't take a picture of the engine he was selling me (even though he has two pictures in his profile), warning sign number two. Finally he doesn't do paypal because he was "screwed over" in the past and therefore only takes money orders. In any case, he sent me the engine, but it was completely seized, rusted, and useless. He said it was in good condition and came off a running bike... honestly, if he was planning on fucking me over like this, why even spend the money to ship the engine? This guy is really a piece of work. All I want is my money back. - Joseph Gummer
- Yep, this guy is a sham. Told me he had a rear wheel for an AMF roadmaster, wanted $50 for it. Would only take money order. Talked to him on the phone, insisted that we should stay in touch cause he runs a moped shop too. "Ya know, so if we ever need parts we can call each other!". Sent him a money order, took a while for me to see anything in the mail. So i emailed him, inquired as to whether or not he sent the part, and he told me he had just received the money order that day, and would ship the wheel out. Never got the wheel. Have been sending reminder emails every week or so and he does not respond. Anyone still got his number? I'd love to call him and annoy him regularly.

- Bought a v1 motor from him. I asked him if it had a needle bearing or brass bushing. He told me needle bearing. I received the motor and it had a brass bushing and it had been damaged in shipping due to quite possibly, the worst packaging job on the face of the planet. It had been wrapped in one single layer of the most thin bubble wrap you can find. Cylinder studs had not been removed so they were bent. Fan stuff was floating around in the box so the fan items were cracked/broken. I asked for a $50 refund to replace all of the broken parts, he offered me $20 (if you can find a used, in good shape v1 fan for $20 let me know!) which I accepted because I was tired of dealing with him. Good communication skills but absolutely lacking in the shipping/packaging department. - Ryan N.

- SHIPPING OVERCHARGING AND PRICE BENDING: Sold me Motobecane Malossy Variotop (original thread for reference http://www.mopedarmy.com/riders/demsin79/). He was selling it with extra weights for $160-165 shipped in US. Quoted me $32 for shipping to Canada and after negotiations we agreed on the total price of $190 (he wanted $200 at first!). He promised to refund the difference if the shipping was cheaper. He shipped it for $11.60 without tracking # and refused to refund the difference telling me that: “You live in Canada and that changed things.” So, it changed the price for the part and price for shipping? Simple calculation: starting price ($165) minus max for shipping in US (about $7) equals to $158 profit. For $190 shipped got profit of $178.4 – just ripped another 20 bucks off me for used variator (even with extra weights)! As for the part – it’s in good used condition, but not excellent as stated in description: it has a few scratches on cheeks and tool-marks from mounting-dismounting, shaft has a blue spot from overheating and the ID of bushing is well worn. Liar. People beware! - Matt S
- In Response To The Above Crap: I get an email from this guy saying he wants to buy the variotop + weights for $165 shipped. He explained he was in Canada. I said shipping would be an approx. amount because I looked it up on my phone quick. If anyone has ever shipped to Canada you know there are papers and shipping anything over 4lbs is expensive as hell. The amount I gave was a medium international flatrate box for $32.95 and shipping priority was ~$36. I shipped it as a parcel because it was cheaper @$12. The paypal fee was $8, so the shipping and fee was ~$20.
I have way to many good selling experiences to let one guy crying over $10 bring me down. Whatevs..I wont ship to Canada ever again because of this idiot.
I also marked the item as a gift instructed by him. I'm sure there is a gain by doing that and he wouldn't tell me what it is. If so then he really has nothing to complain about.
I just went onto the Canadian Customs site and it states there is a tax of $8.50. Just by me marking it as a gift he saved that money. He wouldn't tell you that though because that would mean I didn't rip him off at all. Go cry about $2.50 man, get a hobby. - Weak-Ends TJ
- In Response To The Above Nonsense You have an obvious problem with logic. I guess, I can call you an idiot too... You never refunded MY money. It doesn’t matter, $2.5 or $20… Taking money and not returning called "I didn't rip him off at all" from now on. You just proved with your own words that you don’t know what the honesty is. - Matt S
- Matt S, Explain how the customs tax works and tell everyone the money you saved and I'll refund you $2.50. You are butt hurt that you got a practically brand new variotop(I'm sure it is working seamlessly for you) w/weights for cheap. Look at all the emails between you and I. I still have them if you want me to show that we agreed on $190 shipped. Shipping it with tracking number like I said was $36, which I thought it would be $32+tax and I would have had to payed the extra. I know you would not pay the extra would you? You got it none the less cry baby. - Weak-Ends TJ
- Weak-Ends TJ, Ok, you want the explanation on customs tax? Here it is: when you get NEW goods from international destinations you might get charged by Canadian customs for applicable taxes (lots of exceptions here). In case when you buy USED things from private sellers (opposed to commercial vendors) buyer is not getting charged. But, as a rule, I ask ALL sellers from US to mark my parcels as a gift just in case (customs officers have bad days too). Prove me wrong on that one, if you are so good in searching Canada Customs site.
Next: we agreed on $190 total only because of $32 shipping. Prove me wrong on that one…
If you messed up with the quote – let the buyer know first (instead of assuming that I won’t pay an extra $, you’ve never asked), before making a decision to ship it the cheapest way possible and keeping extra $20.
As for Paypal fees BS – if you not satisfied with profit from your sale, incorporate all the extra fees in the starting price, don’t feed me with that crap after you messed up.
I won’t remove the bad feedback from here if you don’t refund all the difference you owe me. $20 will do. - Matt S
- Bought and sold many things with Andrew. Always a good buyer and seller. And if you pick up your shit in person, he might let you ride his Harley. - Seth Z.

- Amazing seller. He'll find you everything you need, pack it up to withstand any brutality and abuse involved in international shipping and all at a too good to be true price.

I can't say enough about Angelos customer service. Not only was everything shipped as discussed, priced reasonably, and packaged impeccably, but his after the sale service went far and beyond. This is definitely a guy you can trust. Great source for Garelli parts!
- Sold me a super good condition Magnum seat. Provided loads of good quality pictures that showed the exact quality. Was honest about a tiny tear, and a slight dent on the pan. He even went out of his way at WizBiz5 to track me down and deliver it to me. Also he did all of this for about half the price that people sell ratty magnum seats for.
