    Homebrewed components undelivered orders

    The purpose of this thread is to compile a list of unfulfilled orders by Dan at Homebrewed components. If your order has been outstanding for more than 1 month (the lead time posted on his site) then I'd like to get your info. I do not take getting scammed lightly and I'm sure many others out there feel the same way. I'll let this thread go for 2 weeks. At that time I will send the list to the Escondido police department's investigation unit. This should hold some weight because he is looking at felony grand theft easily.

    For confidentiality you should PM me your info unless you want it out in the open in this thread.

    The info you should send me is:

    Name
    Address
    Phone #
    Order #
    Order description
    Order date
    Total order price

    For public record keeping I think each user that PMs me their info should also simply post their outstanding balance so we can have a tally for all to see. Please keep this thread on track with only order info.

    I had a problem with my order. I must have received it just before whatever happened happened. The ring didn't fit the crank properly. It was just a little off. I told him which crank I had and he chose which interface to make. He would not take it back or fix it, even though I offered to pay shipping both ways. I would have thought he would be interested in finding out where the mistake was made. But he wasn't.

    Edit: I sent him pictures of my crank before I ordered it. He was very nice during the buying process. But, after the purchase, he was an ass.

    I'm sure those that now know that this is going on, won't order. The problem is that people were ordering from someone who had pretty good CS, and made a great product, then it's like he just dissapeared.

    Had an address change in August and actually heard back from him on 8/30:

    "Wow Sorry Jason, that’s an old one. No problem, I should have some stock I can steal from so I should get that out today to the new addy. Sorry again about that, Dan"

    All followup emails go no where and no product shipped

    My guess is that law enforcement isnt going to care much. Dan will just tell them he is behind on filling orders.

    Maybe, but, considering this is more than a few orders... over the internet and he is still taking orders? I think there is enough evidence with unresponded emails and his youtube offroading adventures that proves he has had plenty of time to at least take some action. Isn't internet fraud a federal crime? He even charged me sales tax, which, did he send that to the state? Tax fraud as well?

    I think in California, grand theft is over $400. I am sure we are over that point now. I'm not even sure how much it takes for internet fraud to become a felony.

    Here is my order info. I did receive an email in June to an early product status inquiry (with an excuse for the delay) but no further responses to my subsequent emails. At the very least someone should be able to shut his order site down.

    That's insane. While I too never received my ring, an email stating it's been shipped and never delivered would put me through the roof.

    Anyone that has not received there product that was supposed to ship via USPS can file a mail fraud claim as well....

    Also, if you paid via Paypal; Call the fraud department and ask to speak with Chris he is working to escalate the issue with in the Paypal ranks.

    Wow. What a mess. I see a lot of folks coming out of the woodwork to post here. The more that jump on board, the more likely something - anything - will happen with this.

    3+ pages and a few thousand dollars from people that are being ripped off and the list continues to grow. I wonder how many more there are that will never find this thread?

    It just goes to show, even though the other thread exists detailing the issues HBC has with delivering a product, ppl are still ordering. And, losing their money.

    Removing my items from the list. Check out his Facebook page, he's had some setbacks and has stopped taking orders and is working to fulfill his orders.

    Someone (semi) local needs to compile this info and take it to the prosecutors office in his jurisdiction. There is enough outstanding orders in here alone to warrant a felony charge. If they do some digging, you know more will be uncovered. We're just a small portion of his overall "business".

    At least now when people Google "Homebrewed Components" this cautionary tale shows up in the results (at least for me). I wish he would at least respond. I can deal with waiting longer than the promised lead times as long as I know he's working on getting all of our orders delivered. I've checked his activity on this forum and he hasn't posted anything since last year, which makes me thing he really is AWOL. Daniel Wilcox, if you're listening ... LET US KNOW YOU ARE STILL ALIVE!

    UPDATE

    He has provided updates on his FB page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Homebrewed-Components

    When I placed my order in October, I'm pretty sure he had the lead times listed as 8 wks. Now it's 12 so at some point between now and then he's at least logged on to make that change.

    I'll give you a bump just for the "Ouch" factor. I hope something comes of this more for your sake than mine now. Thats some coin padding Dan's pockets.

    Update - posted recently on Facebook by Homebrewed Components:
    hi guys, sorry for slacking on the updates. Here's a status update. For starters, i am no longer taking orders. the site is still up, but i disabled the ability to checkout. I'll fix it soon to make it more obvious that it is closed.
    Secondly, yes, old orders are still being made. in fact, they're ALL just about done. up to the last order. Since there weren't many orders after the last batch, it made more sense to finish everything since that worked better with my anodizer's timeline anyways.
    here's the "ready for anno rack".


    Response from HBC owner in the comment feed:
    [name withheld], i would like to keep making certain things that are not offered by others, but most stuff will be cut from the store i would assume. As it stands, i plan on getting a job after everything is shipped. If and when i reopen, it will be part time.
