187chamcham, is Joshua Chamness beware of this guy,
He puts a wanted add up for a double cab,so i happen to be working on a Turkis 1962 double cab i got from dmonger from Kansas i got here on the site.So I contacted 187chamcham and told him i have the 62 double cab for sale,but wont be ready for a few week because,i was in the middle of putting new rockers and a new cargo floor,i even put new hoops on the truck,so i sent pics to him and he was like ok i like it i want it,,So we Agreed on a price,He PAYPALS me a deposit at $500,i finished the bus up,as far as we agreed on.But he was short $2500,I was like ok well just pay when you get it in a few weeks,he agreed to that,and paid the rest in cash,come to find out he picks the bus up on 10/14/16 and shows up with cash,2 sealed envelopes wich i thought where at 5k each and a ziplock bag of cash was the rest,wich i didn't count,((my fault)),i just trusted the guy,i rote him a bill of sale and did not keep a copy,my bad there,
So i buy a 1959 impala with the cash and give that guy the 2 sealed envelopes,and hes like these only have 4k each,Thats when i went to contact Joshua Chamness 187chamcham and hes was at work and said he will call me later,never no call,
Ive sent TEXT messages,call and call,sent a email..nothing,now he has my number blocked,
that's a total of $4500 that Joshua Chamness is at fault,,i know i never counted the cash and will suck up the 2k but we agreed on the $2500,and for the simple fact he is hiding from me and deleting all of his adds here on the samba and deleting people and his name on Instagram,that tells me this is one shady guy,he cant get away with what i worked my ass off on,for him

the double cab was sold with a bill of sale to me only ,,so there is no title,
and i sold it to Josh Chamness aka 187chamcham that way..
lets all pull together and get this guy out of the Volkswagen scene,
i have a few people that have found his new address i will be posting pics,

Joshua Chamness
Lancaster, CA 93536
ANY HELP TO GET RID OF THIS GUY WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED,

Andre,

Sorry to hear of your troubles, but when dealing in cash I would always be counting money. Not only that, but I would be meeting at a bank to have them verify the amount. Sealed envelopes that you didn't open?

Come on..

This all seems very strange to me,the seller didn't count the money? and how long did it take to realize you were short ?and your saying ur selling to a person you have never met or had any dealings with ?and you released the vehicle to the buyer claiming he still owes you money with out any type of signed agreement?As i being an attorney none of this ads up,I've seen this type of scams before of people claiming they still owe them money and released the vehicle without a future payment owed with out signatures.Why didn't you count the money when you received the money on the spot in front of the buyer? thats a normal way to do business right? Sounds like one of the dime a dozen scammer here.Buyer and sellers beware of these things.

ya I get what your saying..but I just trusted the guy..and felt he was a honest straight up guy..if anyone knows me I would never do any one like that.however I'm at fault for not counting the funds and will stand bie that..however we just had a man to man verbal agreement on the 2500..that's a straight deal..I will eat the 2k ..but fuck this guy for even avoiding me..I'm a straight guy and been here in the scene for a long time.

No don't know the guy i read the majority of these post,with you being in the game for a while you need to be on the top of your game especially with your transactions Sorry lesson learned here. A third party like a bank should always be kept in mind so there are bank notes involved and no hard feelings or miss trusts.

Sounds like you made the worst mistake you could have made. ALWAYS COUNT THE MONEY FIRST!!! NEVER TRUST ANYONE!!! This seems like one of those who's right ,who's wrong situations. I've done business with him before, and never had any problems. Hopefully you guys can get this thing worked out.

This sounds like a crazy transaction. The seller not counting the money just sounds impractical especially when dealing with large sums of money. I am also from the same town and have dealt with him before. I however, have never had a problem like the guy above me said. Always has been a nice guy and is very helpful. Sucks he has been removed from the site. Posting up that you know people, that know where he lives however can be incriminating and also doesnt sound like the smart thing to do. Kind of like not counting the money when the transaction was being made. Thats just my opinion. Hope it gets figured out.

Thats just to prove he can not hide,and no it doesn't suck he got removed from here,,this kid is a thief,a bad person,a disgrace to the VW scene,like i said before, i will eat the 2k..but the 2500 that we shook on and agreed on is just down right a dirty sketchy move,come on man where all grown adults,Why am I blocked from his phone?why did he delete his 15 adds here? why is his Instagram account down?I emailed him,nothing, This guy is hiding out!IDONT GET ALL THAT.
THATS JUST SHADY

After reading all these replys and interesting story we all have to remember one thing "THERE IS ALWAYS THREE SIDE'S TO THE STORY" your side his side and then the truth.. Usually there is a reason someone is blocked if that's the case.. I'm wondering why the buyer was blocked from here.. Has there been other complaints about him? Has anyone else heard his side? Seems like you have been in this " scene" for awhile and obviously must know better maybe this is just a case of who know who and has the pull... Either way fact of the matter is buy and sell at your own risk.. me personally would be more mad at myself.. 1,2,3 strikes ..

Admin comments:
The buyer is free to send me his side of the story and explain why he has not paid the additional $2500 due for the vehicle.

I did email him about the ban. He replied but offered no explanation.

Note: He can't post his side here since he is banned.
Update: He emailed me with an explanation, which I asked for further clarification with both the buyer and seller.

Funny how there's two "first time" posters basically defending the buyer.... ironically... the seller sold a blue-ish 1962... and one of the new posters has a similar username. Hmmm.... is it all a coincidence? I mean who really makes their first post as a third party in a feedback thread?
see above^^ 19BLUE62 + Busgirl57

Sorry to hear you got the short end of the stick Andre.
