    Interesting homepage indicated in the business card.

    Is it true, as said there, that the moderators and admintrators here collect dinky toys? If so, how about some photos? ;) :D

    What did the guy do? Aside having a lot of girlie photos on the page.

    I wired him money for a GT40 gearbox ZF box
    Never delivered goods. Never had the transmission

    He sent a £7900 check to refund the money because he didn't know how to wire the funds
    Then cancelled the check

    More of the story on the gt40 forum where he was banned ALSO !!

    Well, after having looked at the GT40 thread, what is the instant reason to pick up this matter from 2012 (!) here and now?

    "Pete" was banned there for this reason ....... : "Pete, you have violated forum rules with the posting of a nude woman to your profile." :D

    He was quite active in the #0834 thread, insulting one and all, with his
    "superior knowledge"......

    I'm not sure if I have any Dinky's, as my collection is Ferrari specific....more Bburgao, Hot Wheels, Brumm, Best, and others.....

    If he actually got to Tom S., that's enough to Black List him in all of North America, for me..... including Texas, where we know handle to "handle such things"......

    Not QUITE FerrariChat.com, but certainly a mimic of all of Rob's work, here.

    Important warning, and of interest to everyone who reads the 0384 thread. This guy is bad news. Now he's got a name.

    Did you speak to him at Retromobile, Tom?

    OK, that brings up bad memories, fully understandable.

    Makes me think of the Luxembourg guy, against whom I have an enforcable title in Germany (since then he avoids fairs here ...). No, stop, Bernhard, think of last weekend and the blast with the Maranello, first time in this year, that was GREAT. And then my wife, and her fabulous home made pizza, all on the same day ... :D

    Cheers, Bernhard ;)

    Missed him by minutes. Clearly was trying to find the scum bag.

    He was eating free food in some VIP lounge, talking nonsense to RM Sotherby people, who told me about this bizzare character. Max Vito trying to sell a fake 375 in South America and a SWB replica project
