    I bought some cars from ChopperJeff here on the HAMB back in March of this year with the condition that he had a guy able to deliver them. It never happened. Jeff was then going to deliver them. It never happened. Jeff has now chosen to no longer answer my phone calls, e-mails, or PM's here on the HAMB and is no longer a HAMB member. He DID however, cash a money order for a couple thousand dollars that I sent him back in March.
    The cars I bought were a 1954 Ford pickup truck and a 1927 Dodge 3 window coupe.

    I cannot get to Minnesota right now with a new baby here. If anyone is close by and can pick up the cars I paid for and move them to a safe location, I will pay for the trouble and the truck can be yours for FREE. That's right, I will GIVE you the truck for FREE and pay the expenses of moving the coupe just to get back what I "bought" four months ago.

    I have all of Jeff's information, including address, phone numbers, e-mail, company name and address (he own's his own company with his brother). If you can help me with this, I would certainly appreciate it. I'm not sure what I've done to deserve this and would just like it to go away. I thought I'd try just getting my cars before filing charges with the police. Please PM me if you can help. Thanks.

    If I were closer I mos def help you out, and not even take the truck. It's just weak when something like this happens.

    Mound is part of the twin cities in St. Paul I believe.

    Actually, it's about 25 miles straight west of Minneapolis. Take 394 to Wayzata and then County 15 all the way around Lake Minnetonka to Mound. If I still lived down there, I'd help. There's gotta be a lot of HAMBer's in the west suburbs, it' kind of a hot bed of car enthusiasts.

    Lance got in touch with him but he was "unavailable" Friday. Talked on Monday and was still "unavailable". Haven't heard anything today yet.... so I'm betting that's not good news either.

    I think it plain sux that someone can't follow through on their deal. If I was closer, I'd already be there.

    I appreciate it. Towaholic is on the case. It's the "seller" that is the issue. He is at least accepting Lance's phone calls. That's more than he will do for me.

    Thanks. I'm hoping Lance is able to get them this week but I'm not optimistic after all of the B.S. and now complete silence to me from Jeff. Lance has tried twice already to pick them up and he's local and has a tow truck. It's not like we are putting this guy out any. Open a gate and it's done. Just like how it started with me. I already filed charges with the police locally as that is the beginning of the process to get Minnesota police involved if it becomes necessary. I have all of the documentation of the transaction along with proof payment and that it was cashed. I'll gladly post up his info here too then so that people know not to deal with this guy (I need to check with the mods first and make sure that's cool).

    Jeff's home address is in Bloomington Minn but his construction business is in Mound. I don't know which location has the cars because he won't accept my calls, e-mails, PM's or return my messages.
     
  21. Wow that sucks. I hope you get the cars you paid for.

    Good luck!
     
  22. Good luck man.

    I hate this kind of stuff. Uncle Scooby is a good guy and deserves to get what he paid for.

    If i can help you or lance, in any way to get the cars loaded let me know, i have thurs fri and saturdays off. Also have dually that could tow one down to your area. It would be a good reason to vist our son dart69 in illinios.

    Pm me....
     
  25. The fact that he won't answer you and is never available makes me think he's done something like sell one of them again, maybe even all of them. I hope that's not the case.

    Hey, send me his information when you get a chance. The more locals he has calling him all the time the better the chances are that he'll just get sick of it and the very least tell you whats going on.

    I live in Minneapolis and am very near Bloomington. If you send me his address I can drive by and see if the cars are there outside. Knowing exactly where they are might make this easier. I'm off work the next two days and would be willing to roll by.

    Sorry you're having so much trouble with this.

    Good luck man. That isn't cool at all. Not good for our economy and hobby to be ripping people off....
