Buyer Beware

Fellow Samba.com forum and classified buyer/seller members:

I've owned 20+ VWs and 2 Porsche 911s through the years (1st VW was a '69 Squareback while in the service at age 17 in CA). Got the bug (literally) early -- my father had a company car back in the 60s which was a European spec '63 w/semaphores and sun roof rag top (my Dad worked at the NY office for a German-based import/export firm based in Hamburg--parking lot was full of an array of unusual VW cars).

I've only be part of the Samba VW Classified community for a few years. I've made purchases totaling over $14K during this time. All purchases were great EXCEPT for one--specifically, from "Caravelle C."

"Caravelle C" resides outside of Munich, Germany. He had a Porsche G50 transmission for sale last June 2018 on this site. We negotiated back/forth and came up with a deal satisfactorily for both of us. Final payment was made in August 2018--I still don't have the G50. I'm long past initiating a PayPal complaint (did try) as well as a credit card fraud complaint (also tried). Fortunately, my bank--a credit union is willing to work with me.

"Caravell C" had lots of posts and had bought and sold items on the Samba site--so he seemed legit. He didn't give me a "once in a life deal" either for the G50--probably a little low by US pricing but by no means cheap. I'm also part German--paternal Grandfather and maternal Grandmother--so naturally trusted "a German" (they did make good cars over there). Well, turned out "Caravelle C" is a "Bad German." Dozens of e-mails, as many phone calls and a registered letter--nothing. He seemed to be playing me, seemingly knowing when the PayPal claim period had lapsed as well as the timely filing of a credit card fraud complaint.

On me, I'm a good guy. I'm one of those people you'd never notice in a crowd. Like many, served several post 9-11 tours in Iraq and Afghanistan (time in both places). Came back from Afghan II a bit worse for wear. I have to take a cocktail of medicine every night to keep pain and the occasional bad dream at bay. As a result, suffer severe nausea almost every day which makes having a full-time job difficult (like morning sickness). Nonetheless, do work and have a modest VA disability pension. For what its worth, earned two Bronze Stars "over there."

If "Caravelle C" did this to me, he'll do it to you too... .

I am still working through a fraud complaint, will update the Samba community as this matter progresses.

Of note, "Caravelle c" (e-mail: [email protected]) name is Friedrich Schlampp in the event he seeks to create a new account on this site or another. He is not a fair trader and clearly has committed a fraud.
