    Jason Castellano scammer still at large

    I apologize if this thread is in the wrong area, feel free to move it but this is just to warn my fellow subie friends. I had a post up looking for an ets exhaust, On Jan 20th 2016 a phone number from miami florida contacted me and said he had the exhaust, sent me pictures and wanted 800 shipped to me in massachusetts. He called me on the phone and said his name was David (seemingly nice man) I talked him down and we agreed on a settled price of 650$, A week later(jan 27,2016) I sent him the money via google wallet and it said the money was sent to a Jason Castellano out of Miami florida so I was like wtf I thought this guys name was david. He uses legit registered cell phone numbers to make his scams more believable. I typed his name in google with the subsearch scammer, numerous records of him came up, to include over 10 years of scamming online car parts buyers like you and me. He immediately blocked my phone number, Google Wallet was contacted by me and they are doing an investigation because all accounts are supposed to have proper background checks done on them. I also called the Miami/Dade police economics divsions as well as filed a complaint on the fbi website ( Ic3.gov ). I only post this to warn you guys as I do not want to see anyone fall for the scam. Shame on me for not doing more research but it is what it is. His current name on Nasioc is Da1mScoob.

    That sucks man thanks for the heads up. And of course he's a Nasioc member literally the worst forum ever created. Great information but a bunch of jerks and trolls. Hope it all works out for you

    Damn that sucks dude! I don't know how Google wallet works but whenever buying online like that I prefer to Paypal with "goods and services" option to protect myself in these kind of situations. Worth the 3% fee.

    I'm surprised Google Wallet doesn't have buyer protection similar to Paypal's service. Hopefully this guy gets his ass thrown in jail. Though if he's been running a scam for 10 years, that's pretty concerning.

    Paypal is no angel either. I sold a guy a Corvette C5 Hurst short throw shifter listed on ebay as " as is, no returns accepted", and after getting it, the buyer goes through the return process, sends me back garbage in a box and tells paypal that he returned it and here is the tracking number. Guess who they sided with...

    I googled it, and found out I got lucky that I only got beat on a hundred dollar part. Scammers regularly take advantage of the return process to steal all kinds of expensive items.

    I sell using paypal right now for my watch parts.. It's been so bad with people doing this, we only allow paypal gift.. So now the problem shifted from protecting buyer, to now the seller can run with the money. It's not fun..
