    Cessnapilot is still roping people in with his "WTBs"
    He was looking for a custom about a week ago.
    Their were plenty of respondents.
    He also admitted he was having your git repaired.
    As far as contacting the authorities, I would not waste the time.
    "This dog has no teeth".
    This is a ploy many people started to use during the housing boom.
    Agree on a price, then, renegotiate at closing.
    If you let him push you around he will only try to do it to someone else.
    On other forums they "Black ball" unscrupulous buyers or sellers.
    I think they should do the same here.

    On another note:
    He is not going to turn you in to the authorities (It is a civil matter not criminal.)
    The amount in question will prevent him from sueing you. (Attorneys prices being what they are)
    Unless he has nothing better to do, I would simply not address his rants.
    But, be sure to post them in this forum.

    it's funny you said that about renegotiating the price... the kid did that when he bought it. first he lowballed me and I refused then he said a higher number and i accepted then he came back lower again amd i agreed to "help him get a great guitar". I agree about blackballing people but iirc we have banned members amd they pop up under aliases a lot.

    Cessnapilot has been scoring free stuff in threads and trying to make deals with alot of members here. He needs to be banned immediately. Ben will not be the last seller here to get screwed over by him.

    Id be surprised if someone who sells alot here hasnt read this thread yet. The title should be changed to "AVOID CESSNAPILOT" and made a sticky at the top of the forum.

    Crazy shite.. I would just start ignoring any future emails, pm's. Sorry this is still draging on man.. Go through all his posts and print out anything and everything you can just in case, which i believe is unlikely that they try any type of legal action.. He has not keep his word on anything he has said, at least from what I have read. If he is 18, you have no obligation to deal with the Dad. I would put it out of your mind and not even think about it again. Best of luck.

    Good advice!! Dig into those emails and threads and save everything. I'd copy and paste and save. Then print later if necessary.

    I hadn't seen any of those threads at all since I have been so busy. I actually hadn't been on the site in a long time since school is taking up what little time dealing with my parents doesn't consume.

    He said he was keeping it so that is the end of the story... even if he tries to edit the thread and remove that the mods can always show what he said;

    Teame asked him in the one thread



    and he replied:

    The kid hasn't contacted me in a long time it's his parents that have dealt with the whole thing. I think he might be underaged and if that's the case he lied to me from day one. Either way they told me they were keeping the guitar and he posted it on a public forum that he was keeping it so they can huff and puff all they want I can easily block all contact and have the police put a no contact order on them.

    He wanted to buy a guitar from me on here. I told him no...I was not selling to him (thanks for the warnings guys). He also told me the r6 was being repaired and was being paid for by Ben! Looks like that was a crock-o-shit. He should be banned. Dumb kid with not a clue in the world.

    he asked me about repair costs and i told him no because EMS won't refund any money without having the guitar inspected.... I have that conversation in my pm's too. Don't these people realize that every single communication between us is being saved and in a way that is unalterable. if they tried to "prosecute" me, as they have threatened, i can just show them all their emails and pm's along with these threads where the kid is doing this stuff.

    I think you've done all you can / should Ben. I wouldn't even respond to them any further.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about being sued internationally.

    I had a former pickup winder steal a Gibson from me along with several hundred dollars, he lives two states away, I'm an attorney, and I wouldn't dream of wasting the time or money involved in attempting to recover my $1500. Kiddo's dad is blowing smoke up your ass.

    Basically they didn't even fill out the damage reports at the Post Office, which was the first thing I told them to do, and after, it seems to me, the kid tries to trade and sell it they try to threaten me. My college roommate passed the bar a few years back and is practicing now, business law, so I'm not really worried.

    It's pretty amazing to me that Cessnapilot is even still posting here. I guess if you bury your head in the sand, everything else does disappear.

    Don't put any more into it Ben, that's my opinion for what it's worth. Best of luck to you.

    This was a long sad thread to read for so many reasons. I came into it basically hoping for some sweet photos of Historics and OTPG PAFs. Wow. I didn't expect all this.

    Ben, my best wishes are with you for all the various drama in your life right now, mostly your parents as it sounds like the other problem is going away.

    my parents and my pregnant wife are my biggest concerns followed closely by grad school and dealing with the vultures that swoop in any time a family member gets sick. This drama is way down on my give a shit list. Between my dad's mood swings and spiraling mental decline, my mothers brain problems, and my wife and I dealing with not only immigration but insurance companies and the like this guy and his family are a biting gnat. I tried to help them but in the end their deciet and inaction in resolving the problem makes me not really care one way or the other about them.

    Looks like the mods handled the cursing. I hope no one sells to him. Ben should leave negative feedback so people know...I've had a couple folks PM me for the story.
