Rawgarage

Nothing but headache dealing with this dude. Started by talking through text, I specifically asked for 5 lug conversion hubs for an s13, paid him on oct 4. 2 weeks went by with no package, claims the box fell apart, 1.5 weeks go by I get just the front hubs, which are off an s14 and won’t work, claims he got a new phone and didn’t see I needed conversion hubs. Rear hubs are nowhere to be found. Talked to him to get me a refund because I’m tired of dealing with this, wants me to send the hubs back then refund me. My answer is refund first then I send them back since I waited a month already, received half my shipment, and the wrong hubs. So, I just want my money back and will gladly send the wrong items back to him. He refuses and stopped responding. So opened a PayPal claim, just wanted to share my experience since he seems like a good seller, but seems like I got the bad end of the deal here. Very frustrating waiting for a month for the wrong parts. Done with this fool.

Yup, he's a fucking flake. He posts in my WTB threads, and so I text him. Every reply from him takes forever. His response was that he's working. I'm like okay, no big deal. This continues on, and all I was waiting for, were the pictures of the items I was going to buy. Promises to send them that night, but he ended up never doing so. I just gave up after a final text, to which he didn't even reply. Waste of my time.

Unfortunately, I have nothing positive to add to this thread.

In my experience, he held my money for over a month and never shipped what I'd purchased. Contacted RawGarage weekly to see when the wheels were going to be shipped, only to receive what I can now assume are complete BS, fabricated excuses as they never shipped on the days he promised they'd be shipped by. About a month into the whole ordeal, they stopped replying altogether, so I had to go through PayPal to get the funds back (I actually lost money due to conversion rate being different from USD to CAD when PayPal ultimately refunded). Pretty sure this seller lists items that they don't actually own themselves, takes payment and then never ships if they can't get it. I'd hate for other people to have to go through the same thing, so please be weary if RawGarage tries to sell you something. If mods see this and would like proof, or require any sort of additional information, please don't hesitate to PM me.

I have all the proof too, he sent me a tracking # that never worked. Because of him I missed a track event. It’s up to PayPal now. Mods should revoke his selling privileges.

Being that I was only a potential buyer and didn't actually get screwed over by him, beside him wasting my time, I can't really report him. But, you guys actually got scammed. You guys should PM an admin and report his ass. We don't need guys like that on here.

Took him a good month to mail my item, too.

At first he was quick to reply and all seemed smooth and then 2 weeks later and no package. Finally I got him to respond and he made up some crap about the address not being correct and told me he'd mail it the next day. (He asked for the address again but I literally copied and pasted the same one as before.)

Fast forward a week later still no tracking number. He claimed he mailed it a few days prior and was out of town, but once I finally received the package about 2 weeks later it showed the actual postage date to be long after when he claimed to have already had sent it. Only after I told him I would be contacting paypal for a refund did he start seeming to actually make progress.

Dude should be banned from the marketplace for sure. I am lucky I even got my package.

Here is my experience... He replied to one of my WTB threads and sent him money for an SR20 wiring harness.

Aug 8th - Payment sent for harness via PayPal
Aug 11th - Not a word from him regarding shipping, ask for an update and get no response
Aug 13th - Ask again for an update, tells me he'll ship it Aug 17th on his day off and asks if I want more parts...
Aug 18th - Ask for tracking number, no response
Aug 20th - Ask for tracking number, no response
Aug 21th - Ask for tracking number, tells me its been shipped, but won't give me tracking information, making excuses why there isn't tracking on PayPal
Aug 25th - Ask for tracking number, no response
Aug 26th - Demand refund or I'll open a PayPal claim, tells me it must have been lost by USPS, won't refund me since he "can't lose the part and the sale too"

PayPal claim opened Aug 26th, he didn't respond to the case and let it run the full two weeks, PayPal refunded my money on Sept 15th

Horrible seller, should be banned from selling here for sure

James is a reseller, so sometimes he’s actually got an item ready to go, or he knows of a source, and let’s you know he has it. He’ll get your money, then goes and buys from the source at a lower cost. A lot of times you’ll get what you’re asking for, but I wouldn’t expect to get something right away, unless it’s something he has listed under his own post. Delay with his supplier equates to delay for you.

Business works I different ways. I’m way too familiar with it in big business manufacturing.

Don;t sell an item you do not have in your possession. Simple.

These are not custom built parts, big business or manufacturing so none of that applies to used car parts sale. That is a horrendous business if you are dealing with used parts sales. Simple. And one should not have to open any Paypal dispute to get funds back.

If he doesn't have the item, do not post to sell.

Fuck that, if you have something for sale post that it’s available now or that it will be delayed ahead of time in the post. Too much of this going on with Zilvia, mods need to be watching this more. Standard shipping time for any company is 2-3 days, anything after that I expect a tracking number and I expect my customers to ask me for the same type of handling.

Yeah, I don't agree with it, and that's why I've chosen not to do business with him anymore. Up to admin to have these rules listed up, or suffer consequences.

I have what you need, text me 4204206969

Luckily I haven’t ever purchased anything from him. I texted him on two separate occasions (months apart) and he has never gotten back to me.

This guy is one of those Instagram entrepreneurs. Buy something from somewhere for a given price. Then you guys get to pay his Jamaican two step price mark up.

He does not get to use any of the excuses that come with manufacturing since he doesn’t do anything to the parts. “Inspecting parts” doesn’t count either since he doesn’t provide a report that you might get with buying some rebuilt injectors.

Maybe sign up his phone number on a gay tinder account or something.

glad to see more and more people using paypal the right way and not sending via family and friends. the 4% is really chump change when it comes to piece of mind. hit this asshole where it hurts; in the wallet.

if you provide enough proof (which isnt hard), paypal will side with you and refund your money. enough calims against him and PP will shut his acct down.

keep it up zilvia!

^^^ Same, I've purchased a few small things from him over the years and never had a issue. I actually got a sunroof shade from him fairly recently. Always takes a super long time to ship but I can't say I've had a bad experience.
