Couple points I'd like to make...
In regards to the o.p., stark6935 was simply looking out for the best interests of the m5board community. We cannot ridicule anyone for alerting the board of a potential threat. There were very valid concerns he brought up regarding previous transaction issues with a business associate of Mr. #trends, but it should have been brought up in a different fashion. Fortunately, Maciej took the time to address these concerns and appropriately explain these discrepancies. Keep in mind, there are scammers on the buying end out there, and paypal's buyer protection program enables these types to rip off a seller very easily. Those who immediately assumed #trends was a scammer were wrong to crucify him so quickly. I commend Maciej's professionalism throughout this debacle, as he has set quite an example of how to conduct oneself when faced with such allegations. Simply posting the questions raised about #trends legitamacy would have been a much better way to address this, rather than jumping to "im 100% sure" conclusions. I'm happy to see a satisfied customer report, and I expect to see many more, myself included. As for the unnamed price-rigging seller, this is intolerable. Forums such as this are a wonderful means for regular jerks like myself to afford owning, modding, and maintaining expensive vehicles. This glutenous price jacking is a cancer to any enthusiast group and those individuals are not welcome in the marketplace. I can respect #trends not disclosing this individual, however, with so few sellers offering these euro goods, its not hard to speculate who the "azzhat" might be...
