Another problem with the fordprobestore.co.uk website.
I have ordered a fiberglass sunroof. I have no other choice as all the Probe sunroofs tend to rust.
Ordered the sunroof on 9th march. Sunroof made on order.
Received it on 27th may.
Item was so poorly packaged that two corners were broken.
Seller refused me a partial refund and blame the transporter.
I think a better package would have allowed him to arrive safe at home...

you should be able to file an insurance claim with delivery service, if he purchased it, or maybe credit card purchase protection. i was tempted to purchase same thing, but wasn't willing to lose $300, based on complaints here. does anyone else make them?

Wish I had seen this thread BEFORE I spent 300 bucks on fordprobestore.co.uk.

He did respond to my email, but it's been over a month and no product has been delivered.

Still holding out hope, I'm desperate for that fiberglass roof.

I am sorry -but you are out the money. There was never any reconciliation for these members that got scammed and so chances are almost 100% that it would be the same for you.

I highly suggest -since it has not been too long for you -to start fraud filing immediately. Others likely lost their money due to the huge lapse of time. But since yours has been fairly recent -you have better ods of recouping. I would also contact some authoroities to see if something can be done to stop him. He has done a significant $$$ amount total to make it a major crime -if it could hold up that way in the legal system.

But for now -as a minimum -move forward very quickly with a claim to recoup your money. If you paid with PP or a credit card -they should be willing to help you. Good luck and keep us informed on status.

^^^ Keep in mind that this info may not be correct. My Whois still shows the address where I lived over 18 years ago. But still good detective work!

It may also be difficult to bring him to justice due to being out of country for those here in the US.

I know the feeling. i was desperate and gave him an order for the sunroof and he never produced it. he was stupid enough to claim he shipped it, but never produced the tracking no#. i disputed with credit card 6 months later and they refunded. he had the balls to complain to me, after the chargeback.
