Volcom887 (Ian Archer) Scammer
I purchased an engine bay and dash harness from his 95 SE Zenki partout. After many PM's and texts back and forth he told me that both harnesses were in good and in working order with no missing/damaged plugs, so I grabbe'em. It cost me $150 for both and shipping took a month. Getting in contact with him was a pain and I got a few BS answers as to why he hadnt shipped it out.
A month passes and I finally received the harnesses. After closer inspection, I came to the conclusion that the engine bay harness is unusable. Here are few pics to illustrate what kind of mess Ian threw at me.
I sent him text after text, PM after PM with no response. A few weeks pass and he finally finds the courtesy to respond. He claims that family troubles kept him from responding back. OK, well, I can understand that. Life can get in the way. I was willing to give him some slack because of it. He then says the only thing wrong with the harness was missing turn signal plugs and that he coulnt find a way to rectify the situation.
I then suggested half a refund. I was keeping the dash harness so i think its fair to get half back.
After many unanswered texts and PM's i started to threaten to a negetive iTrader feedback. Still no response, so I left negetive feedback. A while passes and he responded within the iTrader that the turn signals were the only thing missing and that he wouldnt refund me for 10 minutes of repair work.
Just take a look at the pics and you'll see that it would take considerable time to repair the damage. My question is if he knew the turn signals were gone, then why did he claim that the harness was good and not missing anything?
Stay away from this guy. He's a douche.
