10lbsofboost fucked me over

this guy had a post up about selling a turbo kit. I asked him if i could buy it for 700$ and he said yes. he agreed and we went through paypal and when i recieved the package it was a fucking camera i have the guys address and shit but he wont respond someone please help get my money back and fuck this guy up


i paid 800 for that damn kit ani used paypal what can i do cause i have to rent a car to ride down there he sent me a diy mani that had to be put together

Sounds like paypal won’t be able to do anything about it. All paypal is gonna do is request a tracking number if indeed he really did send the turbo kit. Just post his personal info that way nobody else gets ripped off by him. I think that was his intent… :mad:

Sorry to hear about it like this… i originally wanted to post all my findings the day i pulled out of the transaction so that this wouldnt happen to other members… but then again i didnt wanna be an idiot for flaming someone who is completely legit…

heres the link:


ill post details of my findings when i get home from work… itll take a good 20 minutes… i gotta jam right now tho…

so keep posted…

Okay so here goes the story… typical day i came home from whereever i was at and first thing i did was check out g2ic… as we all know owns us… okay so im browsing the for sale forum… and i see what ive been destined to do for ages at a price way more than reasonable… and come across this sellers listing… turbo kit with all the goodies premodded for the DA… of course on impulse i respond tellin him i want it… i then email him tellin him ill give him a downpayment showin how serious i am… and here begins the email strings…

unfortunately i only have his replies since i never save anything i send… but when he replies you could already tell what i sent…

Yes, this kit includes eveything. Oil lines, piping. What kind of car do you have? I have the downpipe but if you dont have an integra it wont fit. The injectors will be in a plastic bag. Im still debating if i want to put in 2 boxes or one big box the piping will have to be in their on boxes. I will make special boxes for them. So you should recieve everything in good shape. Thanks

okay… sounds good. hope the kit comes with all the turbo crap that you
needed to run it on your car ie gaskets clamps n what not…

esp the 7psi spring and chip cuz im not ready for 11 yet


when can it be sent out
should i send the remainder of the money to your provided hotmail address?

*****#6 (at this point im buyers remorse starts to kick in… i spent the last 3 hours contemplating what ill be doing and bragging to all my friends what deal i just scored on g2ic… people start gettin jealous and what not but others start asking questions that make me rethink the whole ordeal… and this is where my real train of thought kicks in… since i already sent $200 bucks off…

i start looking into who this guy is because when i emailed him… his email is From : tony carter <boosted@combogods.com> … well he gave me a paypal address linked to “tonioluv@hotmail.com” with the paypal registered name as “Tony Walls”… i also notice his paypal is unverified… so im thinkin uhhh shit what did i just get myself into???

i then start lookin into his g2ic history since he had 0 transaction feedback… and realize hes only been a member since jan… well lookin into all his previous posts i try to recreate a storyline…

-he joins in jan

-has turbo problems from jan-april… then mid april starts experiencing problems with his “setup”

-he asks questions but provides little feedback as of whats really going on with his pride and joy…

-the topics he covers are really vague and he spends little time describing his situation since hes only setting up a scenario…

-april 24th he posts on someone elses thread about buying some car parts… (but never checks back in)

-apprx 3 hours later he posts hes gonna part his whole car and sell the turbo kit… MO: FS turbo kit from 93ls and more (http://g2ic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=119736)

-in his first “turbo sale” thread he answers only questions related to high dollar items… but avoids questions regarding dinky shit like starters and lips…

-he’s prolly gettin annoyed with the questions and emails regarding the dinky shit i just mentioned… so he ends his parting his car thread with “sold the whole car today”

-few days later he stages yet another thread this time listing just the turbo kit… mo: fs turbo kit from 93LS (http://g2ic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120363)

-he also sets up another thread for $300 motegi rims MO: FS 17" motegi wheels

-he realizes his turbo thread isnt gettin much attention so he starts yet another one on may 5th called Fs:mo Turbo Kit $1000 Shipped (http://g2ic.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120641)

-problem with that is he created a userid on apr 19th “teamgen2” (http://g2ic.com/forums/search.php?searchid=480880) in florida - he only posted 6 times… all to stage himself as a customer… his 5th post was to our turbo thread… he(the scammer userid #2) offers himself $1200… but ironcally… (scammer userid #1) doesnt respond DUH! oh… and check out scammer userid #2 4th post… (http://g2ic.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1126276#post1126276)… he flames someone else for being an idiot and buying from a scammer… how exciting

-well back to the story… i see his $1000 shipped ad and email him as soon as i see it… (the next day)

-may 5th he posts his link to his turbo pics…(http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/828463)

-upon investigation into his cardomain site… i realize hes only been a member there since apr 24th 2005… which is the SAME day he decides to part his car on g2ic… BUT his cardomain page was last updated APRIL 30th… during the same time he was trying to get someone to buy his turbo quick…

  • his closing statement on cardomain was “Broz car, one day his will be turboed…then we will rip the scene together…MUUUHHHAHAHAHA” BUT if hes selling his car… then how could this be possible especially after april 25th… the day he wants to sell it… when the site was updated april 30th…

so he catches my reply to his ad on may 6th and closes his deal… no more posts ever from him on g2ic…

… and we continue with the emails…


Sent : Friday, May 6, 2005 7:04 PM

Yea his not going to buy it until I sell the kit but its pretty much sold. Dont worry a friend and I put it on so I will be able to take everything off.

Well i dont have anyway of taking any more pics. The only pic I have is the one on the site. Plus i already put the kit was sold on the website because u sent money. The other reason i havent taken the kit off is because i dont have any room to store it and i dont want anything to get damanged laying around because i live with 3 other people. My name is antonio walls. The address on paypal is correct.The only way to get it verified is for me to add a bank account. And that takes a few days. I dont have time for all that. I understand what you mean, but this is by far no way a scam i need to get this kit sold ASAP so i can give the car to this guy that wants it. So if you want to send a money order out to verify who i am and my address here it is…

make the money order out to…

*****#10 (knowing that it takes 3 days for money to go through from my checkings on paypal… and the fact that its a weekend gives me so much time to think… its already sunday and im shittin bricks tryin to figure out what to do as i fool him into thinkin ill send a money order monday…)

Just checking on things. Havent heard from you. I assume your still interested because the 200 dollars you sent went through on paypal. Let me know when you going to send the remainder. I have the kit off and ready to be shipped. Just waiting on you. Thanks again.

Are you sending the remaining amount through paypal or money order?


Sent : Monday, May 9, 2005 10:17 PM

Just call me. I understand where you are coming from. You have my address and my phone number. I dont think i would give you my real name, address, and paypal account if i was trying to scam you. The address i gave you to send the money order matches my paypal account. LIke said I have the kit off of the car. I have no reason to keep the kit or screw you in anyway. My paypal address is comfirmed. This is the only thing i have sold over the net so i dont have any vouches. If i sell this kit to you, you will be my first vouche. LOL.You can even give me your phone number and i can call you if you cant call me. This is the only way i can verify who i am. I cant wait a week to get verified because i have other things i have to do with the money i get from the kit. I was hoping to have the kit shipped out by tomorrow. Just call me and we can talk about it over the phone. Like i said i have everything off the car and ready to go. Just call me so we can talk. Thanx.

314-249-8530 ask for antonio.

-since paypal told me to fuck off and there wasnt enough evidence to suggest fraud… i had to do things myself…

  • i spent most of monday morning deleting my credit cards linked to paypal until i only had the check card that i left … the required one minimum… and then i went to the bank and withdrew all my money… and closed my checkings and savings… what a fucking hassle…

  • the teller explained to me how the funds were supposed to clear any given moment that morning… and i basically told her to shut up and get my money out before it happens…

  • well this didnt come at no cost unfortunately… i had authorized an online credit card payment… and that bounced back after the account closed costing me $28 bucks… luckily the only bounce…

  • i also quickly refunded a g2ic members paypal payment he sent me for something i was selling so his money wouldnt get caught up in a closed account…

well i after the whole closing accounts ordeal i ended up with a $3.50 balance in my paypal accnt linked to a closed checkings… they wont let me withdraw it or send it to anyone without adding a bank account, but im afraid if i do… they deduct madd fees out of it for bouncing the $200

so i ended up opening another checkings, savings, and paypal… thank god paypal is stupid and gay… since i just changed the email on my old account and linked my new account to the same email i was using…

all in all it cost me about $31.50 to save my $200…

sorry bout the format… took me a good 40 minutes to recall everything citing info from various sources…

maybe someone should pay attention to good hinters like this when participating in online transactions…

sorry bout our fellow g2icers experiences… but shit happens… i got screwed too…

I looked up the IP address on the user “teamgen2”, and it does not match 10lbsofboost. The IP address does originate from Tampa, FL…so this user is legit (or could be a friend of seller )…

so anyone out to bust a mission on this foo yet??? the address and number are posted… have your homegrl call him up sayin she got the number from a friend or something… meet up and cap that foo in the nuts… after demanding our monies back…

I was just checking out some tegs on ebay and came across this guy that lives in MO and has every single part that was selling on here on his car. :corn:

Auction # 4558792422

Good find!!! Keep us updated if anything happens in the near future. :corn:

:werd: I want to know whats happens to this guy.I know this is that scam artist 10lbsofbullshit

i sent an email to the current bidder of the auction.

I actually just wanted to bid on the car for the hell of it :giggle: but then again if it isn’t him then I am screwed :bawl:

the pics match the cardomain website exactly

i’ve also emailed the seller.

JDMHonda and Ronron, use this to report him as well.

there was a bid of 14,999.99 (upto the limit which you dont have to get verified with…) by some anonymous ebay user… so that no one would get ripped off… but not to worry… word is… that the user who bid on the car is a guy that has an address and number that resembles himself most definately… haha oh but dont check the previous userid cuz that would really give it away huh… :giggle:

aye i have the biggest feelin this motherfucker used our fellow g2icers monies to buy all his bullshit in his previous feedback…

at least we know the suspect wears a size 12 shoe… it only makes it easier for the FBI to trace his papertrail since he probably used paypal to pay for half that shit… and shipping addresses and what not…

okay i submitted my half to the feds. linkin all info pertaining to this thread and more… so please dont talk about any stupid crimes on this thread now… sorry for bein a snitch but this fucker deserves to die in hell. :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth: :open_mouth:

here is what the ebay seller of the car wrote back to me:

Item: Acura : Integra (4558792422)
This message was sent while the listing was active.
ls-tboosted is the seller.
yea thats the same car. I acutally bought the car from that guy. He works at a perfomance shop. He sold the turbo kit he had on it to somebody and he gave me a good deal on the car and a new turbo kit from his shop. Im selling it now because I have an ss camaro and i cant afford two fast cars.

and you gotta love the top bidders name:

and on a side note…ls-tboosted is his user name since March 11, 2005…hmmmm
