    Ryan, he dealt with different people differently and you were only going by your experience...not much else can honestly be said.

    Bob is going to just keep doing what he does and leave it at that.

    I just want to make sure people know he will not be getting any more Wilson brakes and probably should not be taking orders for them if he still is.

    Not quite, my problems first started in late 2009. Same story, pay for parts and not received for weeks. Finally, got all the parts, but screwed me out of the 10% discount ($1000.00 ++), felt lucky I got the parts. Also, ended up paying more for some parts than quoted.

    He was on ebay for a few weeks ago, do not remember his ID.

    For all the people that feel sorry for him, don't, because he will not change and he will go on doing this same scam.

    I went round and round with Eric and his lies.

    The problem with Eric is that there are a bunch of guys who will stand up for him and defend him as a good dude who is having some rough times. We all have rough times but most of us do not turn into thiefs...

    Perfectly willing to admit that I defended Eric for too long. My mistake and I kick myself for it. All I can do is learn...

    That said, I would like to keep this thread specific to the folks that have bad deals at the moment.

    thanks,

    Just to update, I spoke to Eric about a week and a half ago. Supposedly he is in the process of selling one of his cars, and when the deal goes through he will be paying people back/shipping parts. I only half believe him, it seems like the right thing to do but also like an easy excuse. (I really do want to believe him because it means I might be getting my order) Any one know if this is actually Eric's car?

    he said he is selling this...

    I wouldn't hold your breath thou. I send Eric a polite Email reminding him that he still owes me $2000 and giving him my bank details so he can organize a refund. That was a week ago. Still haven't heard anything from him thou.

    Hi Ryan,

    Now that it's clear that Eric has ripped some people off and hasn't tried to refund them. It's nearly two years now since Eric billed my credit card. Could we now move this thread to the main board, where other common thieves, scammers and conmen get revealed? It's very well hidden here, and Eric is still taking peoples money.

    Cheers

    Ed

    No, I try to reserve the main forum for on topic threads.

    In any case, this thread is well read and well indexed on every search engine imaginable. If someone is looking for feedback, they will find it.

    Further, due to these issues Eric is no longer on this forum. As such, he won't be taking anyone's money from it.

    Yes Ryan - still waiting. Close on two years now. I don't think he ever intends to refund me but I'll never forget it and one day when I'm desperate for money I'll pay him a visit and ask for my money back face to face. It costs me about $700 to fly to Colorado and back. He owes me $2000. Simple math really.

    Thanks for your concern and if and when I get my money back you'll be the first to know.

    Cheers

    Curious... How many people are still out money and parts?

    I've noticed Eric Riley (Riley Auto Parts) has been trying to login using different usernames. We are going to take car of that... Obviously.

    got an email from Eric a few days ago saying I would be receiving the rest of my order this week. But as of this moment still owed.... we will see what happens
     
  27. Is Riley still questionable? I need a set of his Model A on a '32 frame rear subrails. They are on that auction site, but I'm very hesitant to pull the trigger because of his rep.

  29. It's 97.3%, but pretty good recently. I think I'll call him Monday before I buy on the bay.

    Well, while he's probably always gonna be questionable, I think he's tried to make most things right from what I've been reading. I'd say if you use that auction site you should be pretty safe, especially if you use that auction site's uh, "pay buddy" system to pay him. If he doesn't deliver, they'll put him in a world of hurt and you'll get your money back...
