Beware of this buyer. Very strange individual. Says he'll buy something then give reasons paypal doesn't work. He sent some odd emails. So I asked if he was a scammer, and he blows up calling me all kinds of names. User profile name here and email profile name doesn't match his paypal name profile.

Here's the name linked in paypal:
Fairborz Maleknia

Moderator note:
This person has been the subject of some of the "Whine" threads on the site as people have noticed some Split Buses he was selling in the past that looked like very poor and/or quick "restorations". (quotes intentional)

If anyone else who is an actual buyer or has seen vehicles in person, feel free to report your findings.

As a general rule you should view all vehicles in person, from any seller, before purchasing. Or send someone you trust.

I have also seen a few messages from this buyer's emails through the site or that have been forwarded to me that most people would consider rude or offensive.

Please review the linked report above as well.

I felt the need to post this from my experience with this seller today. He's advertised a 1976 bus that is clearly not going to pass California smog with that carburetor installed and yet swears that he has a smog certificate in hand. Once I questioned him on it he became very rude and started using bad language. Seems like he is very much a person that would deceive buyer. I suggest you stay far away from this guy.

Wow, what can I say except that the post I made that's quoted above was done so long ago that I'm having a hard time remembering who this guy actually is. He says he has a current eBay auction with a smog certificate but when I posted my comment on this seller it was months ago. All I can say is read his posts and decide for yourself but always remember..... Let the buyer be ware.

PostPosted: Thu Oct 01, 2015 3:40 pm    Post subject: True picture of the 62 Turkis VW Bus here and on Ebay Reply with quote

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Volkswagen-Bus-Vanagon-BUS-/201437049800?vxp=mtr

Here are some pictures after flying cross country to close the deal:

https://sites.google.com/site/1962vwturkisbus/

I don't need to mention I didn't close the deal. Funnywise when I inspected the car, the seller suddenly and without any reason closed the car and put it back in the garage. I didn't even mention I won't close the deal, obviously looking a little closer triggered this.

I am just waiting a few days until Ebay dispute will be initiated. Nevertheless I received the following SMS from the seller lately:

"Can u read english asshole?
Inspect before u bid cock sucker "

Looks like he also lacks of some education and minimal behavior habits. My reply is: Disclose correctly and we don't have a problem. So you wasted my time.

I wish you would have just contacted me to do a pre-purchase inspection. I would have loved to meet this guy. It's funny because he does business at the same places I do and they all know what's going on with his shady business dealings. What goes around comes around, remember that.

The pics of your inspection don't show up for me.

The slideshow required Flash which many don't have anymore. Now it should work without it and show the pics.

That worked, thanks. Buyers need to be super careful these days because there are a lot of people who are looking to flip a bus for quick money and have no love for the sport.

Thank you, the photos are what I would expect after seeing several of his vehicles on this site and on eBay.

I believe he is "restoring" them as cheaply and quickly as possible to make money.
Buyers should decide if this fits their needs when purchasing and should inspect any vehicle in person whenever possible.
