This wasn't Pete Sinkevich of S-Werks fame(infamy) perchance? I've choked on
all the promises of refunds and checks-in-the-mail. My 500$ is ether unless
I get down to southern CT.

Two well-known "citizens" of the S-Car List have done similar things to me.
I drove 100 miles to meet up with a guy to buy something - no show. You
believe that? He stopped answering his cell phone and didn't reply to my
email for weeks. He sold it to somebody else - for more money I'm sure.
Same as what happened to your son - no discussion, no acknowledgment of the
violation of ethics.
My second problem was with a very high-profile guy who kept $700 of mine for
almost 2 years before he could deliver the part. It was supposed to be in
my hands within 2-3 weeks. He didn't acknowledge my requests to refund my
money and put me at the top of the list when he could finally produce the
part. It got ugly - but it was all off-list.
Makes you wonder....
