    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?
