How to deal with Online scam?

So I bought a rear lower tie bar for my prelude 01 from this guy: xtrememotor4race

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...em320234487598

I went to one of the local shop today to put it on and we both clearly see that the tie bar does not fit my prelude. I just sent an email to them but i want to know what else can I do if they won't refund it.

Item descriptions: Rear Lower Tie Strut Bar for Honda Prelude 92-01 ( Fit All Kind of Models )--------and it does not fit my prelude 01 ( it's not like my prelude is special and unique kind of prelude)

This is a ****ing scam!!!.

Their return policy is final!

not saying that you did anything wrong, but you're first clue should have been that they are claiming one part fits 2 totally different cars. the only thing the 4th and 5th gens have in common are the motor mount locatons and the engines on some trim levels. (and shift knobs on the base models). so unless it's an engine part or a shift knob, if it says fits 92-01 prelude, it's a bull**** part. same thing if they say it fits 97-02 prelude, they obviously didn't do their homework so i wouldn't buy a part from them.

just some things i look out for. but i hope you can get your money back, and i hope those f-uc-kers rot.

Actually much of the suspension componantry for the fourth and fifth gens have the same part numbers, ie, springs and shocks, exhaust...

Nice pull, Brash. When I had my run-in with that ass on ebay, I contacted paypal, and they opened a dispute. They try to contact the seller. If they don't respond in 30 days, you get a refund in full, granted you send the part back to the seller.

Good idea Jesse.

I saw a whole list with pics of interchangble fourth and fifth gen parts, but can't find it for the life of me. I'll get back to here when I do. Not that it's on topic or anything.

I looked at that sellers auction almost bought a set of them too. Do a dispute through paypal...hopefully you used it. If you did you will get your money back. Don't stop their though, start reporting all the auctions he lists for preludes.

that sucks bro, they got me with the same type scam I bought a front strut and it says it fits 92-01 prelude... and I tried every way to put it on and it didn't fit.. seller didn't do sht about it, ebay did nothing. I asked to return it.. went thru the hassel of taking pictures and etc, and it cost half of the amount to return it. So I ended up keeping it, and its sitting in my garage.

Anyone want a strut that fits 92-96 prelude? lol
