David Na->FI : thief

... and a stupid one at that.

I purchased a 2ZZ valve cover from him here: https://www.newcelica.org/forums/showthread.php?t=316333
He has only one positive feedback review, but he's been around since 2006, so he didn't seem like a newbie troll trying to scam a few easy bucks.

Initially, he seemed involved and answered questions. However, once I sent my payment, he promptly disappeared...

Unfortunately for him, he gave me his friend's PayPal address to receive the funds (without mentioning the fact to me), thinking that he would be able to cleanly get away with my money and let his friend take the fall.

I waited nearly three weeks without any answers from David, despite several PMs and emails. Then, my PayPal complaint brought swift justice. His "friend", who can't really be called as such now, did not appreciate having his financial reputation on the line and so dealt with him appropriately. Apparently, he had the cops force him to give up the cover, which caused him to get fired from his job.

Stealing doesn't pay, particularly when there are honest people out there ready to help out.

So don't buy anything from David Na->FI, if he ever returns.

he only had 12 post.

Buyer should always look out for those that don't post a lot. which they can be very shady and highly to steal your money.

Look at my feedback level... do you think I don't have any experience with buying on this forum?

It's unfortunate, but some scammers are harder to figure out.

So you got your valve cover, his friend is no longer a friend, and the guy lost his job and had a run-in with the cops?

Justice is best served cold.

It was me who gave him that positive feedback. For me everything went pretty well with him, he sent me a tracking number and my item came in like 3 days. Sorry if my positive rating i gave him made you purchase from him. But at least everything worked out for you!

Sorry, I don't have his full name (only David) because, as I stated before, he used his friend's PayPal address.

Hello all,
I'd just like to post some information for anyone out there to see regarding David NA->FI

I am a moderator on a local forum in Houston and David is kinda famous for being a scam artist, pissing people off and generally being a horrible mechanic. At one point there was a website dedicated to his debauchery at www.storiesaboutdavid.com, however the site appears to be down. He is now perminately banned from our site for his behavior. If you wish to see full details about his actions search DavidNA->FI on Houston-Imports.com or Houston240sx.com. You can also search David Suarez, which is his full name.

Spread the word.
