I received this message from Alex.
"Brandon Looking at the spread sheet, a little hard to follow what exactly you wanted? we offered to send you the refund for the difference a while ago, you then still haven't sent the parts out, acting like a hostage situation lol. We Just assume your busy, but we can and will send you that refund if you are to send back the extra parts you have to us. If not we really cant do much man, we have sent you little over $1,000 Of parts well over the amount you paid. We did this to hope to make it right by you as our first customer. But despite this it seems we didn't come to the same consensus. Like above, we can most definitely work to get you the $150 difference if you send the parts if not, like stated we can not do much."
I'll make it clear what I want right here in the public forum. I want a refund for the difference between the "Mach 1" and the "Mach 1 Elite". I want a refund for the deck I had to replace and the enclosure which was destroyed when the shitty, broken deck he originally sent cracked in half once I was finally able to get it to work. I don't want to front the money for returning his crappy Maytech components (half of which I should just throw away because they are toast). I want to receive the money it will take to ship this stuff back to him up front, because I trust him to not do good on his word to send me the refund once I've done my part of the deal. There is no reason to hold onto his garbage hubs and bootloader-less maytech vescs.
I also want him to stop lying to me and everyone else about the steps he's going to take to make things right. For... 4 months now he's been promising me the refund, a new enclosure, a replacement for the charging port which broke, and new belts. Before this thread, he would claim he shipped this stuff, but obviously he never did because he refused to provide a tracking number and it never showed up.
So I'm being as fair as possible, I will take the shit I'm going to return to him and get a quote for the shipping cost. Then it's very simple. $100 for the difference between the two models, $50 for the replacement deck, $50 for the replacement enclosure, plus whatever cost it is for me to ship his crap back to him.
Alex also keeps lying to me about being his first customer. However, when I originally talked to him about buying his complete, he told me I wasn't the first, that he had shipped a complete to another customer in Turkey.
