Angry I got ripped off by Jared from pelican parts

I did not want to post it but, I got ripped off. I sent him a 40 money order (walmart) for a used 914 2.0 muffler bracket....when after 2-3 weeks i email him to see if he shipped it, he says "I never got anything" i explain i sent a walmart money order and he replies "i specified postal money order"...so I figure i will just put in to walmart for a refund being it was lost, meanwhile I get a postal money order and send it out.....another 2weeks go by and nothing. I email him and he says no money yet...i am thinking something is wrong here so I look a bit deeper and low and behold the walmart order is cashed.....I tell him and he assures me that he knows nothing of it. meanwhile he finds my postal money order and says he is ending it tomorrow....that was January 27...where the heck is my part!! been 2 months and i am out $80. I figure I should share this soother learn by my mistake. I know that I won't be buying there if that is how the employees operate
Beware Jared fenton...aka jared@pelicanparts.com
I figure this will be deleted anyway because there is a big difference from buying from pelican and buying from someone "drawing a paycheck" from them, but I feel there isn't. I also gave oppurtunity via pm to fix this and no response so hence this thread

well he worked for pelican whilst he ripped me off...don't care who or where he is now. I want my part or my money, don't care where or who it comes from either.

And this is the guy that said Steve Stromberg was crooked and a thief. Kind of ironic.

I dont think either of them come here any more. After that big thread of bashing, it doesnt belong here.

don't know who steve stromberg is....But anyway I think that if guys post about another vender than I should do it in this case, shouldn't I? don't you want to know what venders are screwing people?

why not? because of the vender in question? I know what it's like to be screwed and I understand that, but for you to say it doesn't belong is hypocritical. I don't want to start a fight, all I want is my part or my $80 back...2 months......do I qualify to be mad yet? the truth is NOT bashing, it is the truth. I am just doing the same as the other examples on this board and I will follow the same steps they did to try to recover my $, afterall isn't that fair? you guys don't seem to think that the other thread was unfair did you, but now that it is a different vender it is different

aaron, I do not have any bad blood here, but I feel that if an EMPLOYEE of a company uses THAT COMPANIES website and THAT COMPANIES EMAIL, than that company is just as guilty and responsible as the guy who ripped me off. If you disagree, that is fine, but i have my opinion and you can have yours. no bad blood about that, but if this is the caliber of a companies employee, then how should I feel about that company....

I think you read my post wrong or I didnt say it right, I meant that the bashing that Jared and Steve were giving each other, it was drawn out and even got carried over to another forum. It was out of control.

No, They were just bashing each other, it should have been handled differently. Offline. I hope you get something out of all of this, I know I hate being taken for a ride.

Muffler hanger? $29.00? What a coincidence, I just by chance happen to need one of those. As soon as the club comes back, I will get a hold of him and get one shipped out. Thanks Sean.

sorry but i am not gonna get over it, when i suggested that on another thread, i got heavily criticized. the way i see it is that if this guy doesn't pay up or get my part to me, then pelican should.

Well, in all fairness to Pelican, if I had a Microsoft email address and I ripped you off for something, does that mean that Microsoft should make good on it? I know you wont ever meet Jared so the beating factor will never get to play through, but maybe someone will make good on it on behalf of 914 owners everywhere as a gesture of good faith. Just remember this and only buy from people you know or a friend of a friend. Check out the 914 Club and get to know the people and vendors there and learn from this. If Engman does in fact make these brackets, maybe I will buy one for you and have it shipped to you. I have sent Mark an Email so I will know later today. People get tired of dead horse issues, you made your point in the first post and it is quite damaging to Jared's reputation. Now just sit back and see what happens. That is all everyone is saying.
