Anybody had experience with this seller? I see he has been on TS for a long time, but never any feedback. He contacted me about one of my own ads via email, and provided detailed pictures of the items he had. I decided to buy a few turbo parts from him after a phone conversation, since the vibe was good. I'll let you all know how my transaction with him goes after I receive the parts, but he seems like a good dude.

Update: everything arrived as promised, shipped via UPS. I would definitely do business with Al again, great seller! 8)

I purchased 4 German EFI plenum's from AL. The packing was very bad. 2 of the oil filler necks cam broken and one of the alternator straps was missing all together.

He would not respond to any emails after the sale.

The cost after the sale was another $100 to replace the broken and missing parts.

Buyers beware.

I've never done business with this guy and he's trying to run a scam. Here's an email I received from him and he has an account on this site.
His email [email protected]


Joe Bence Wed Oct 28, 2015 3:13 pm

Very possible an most likely that is not him sending that out but a hacker/scammer that has hacked his Email account, pretty common scam.

Yes, this.

I have seen this same type of email a bunch of times recently so it must be going around.

Al's a good guy, and that message was/is a virus going around. I got the exact same message (other than name changes) from a different VW guy who was hit with the virus, so it is NOT Al who is sending it. Al wouldn't ask you for anything, even a glass of water, even if his feet were on fire. Al is good people, I've known him personally through our VW hobby for going on 30 years now.
