Default Scammer - " Pug1off "

Dont normally do this but id like to warn members about this scammer - "Pug1off".

Please do not confuse this user with the company Pug1Off.

He has 50.00 off me for a ECU which he never correctly supplied. Despite numerous attempts to resolve the issue at the time of the sale he ignored all contact - NO correct ECU was supplied, no refund given.

I put it down to a bad experience but after another saxp member posted a thread about him claiming he had been scammed, another member from 106oc also came forward to complain. It appears I am not alone.

Since this thread was posted myself and the the other forum member have repeateadly messaged him. He doesnt respond but still logs on and posts in threads!

He has had ample opportunity to reply and do the right thing.

If you do read this "pug1off" i would like a full refund immediately. Maybe this public thread is what it takes to resolve the issue.

Yes i want to make that very clear this is an individual user not affiliated with the company "pug1off" in any way - just using the same username.

Pug1off is a company in Oxford mate, dunno if they are the same people though.

Pm Tom5190 (iirc)(red flatty cammed vts) he works for the company, and ask if it's the same person.

If there is an outstanding issue, it should be his priority to try and sort it.

If he can come onto the forum and post, he can also reply to PM's.

No excuse IMO.

Yeah, I know they do... Be a bit weird if not.

But if you read the whole message, you'd see that he comes on here and posts on other threads, so why can't he reply to a PM? Especially when he owes money or an item to someone or whatever.

Obviously something fucking dodgy, so don't try and defend him.
