Default Matt Gendron, and his bounced check and phone number changing.

I had no where else to put this.

I agreed to sell the perfect 1jz out of my car to pay rent.

Who does that? Sells the engine in their car to pay bills? Money is super tight.

Anyways Synergy (Kyle) has been brokering the deal, so there was no way to give this random kid a bad rating.

Kyle has been good about communication until after Saturday, now he is ducking my phone calls.

Matt Gendron (603)-361-5895 has just changed his phone number on me, besides having the super shady VM of "The person has not setup the mailbox, goodbye".

It was working at 9:47am this morning, and now it's not working. Go ahead, call it.

I asked Kyle to be a sport and help me out, but now both of these guys are ducking me.

Now this puts me in an awkward position.

I know his Bank Routing number, I have witness accounts, I know his name, and more importantly, his old phone number totally verifying the guys identity.

I'm pretty sure with all this info I will have no problem locating him with help from the Manchester police, since passing a bad check over state lines becomes a criminal matter.

I needed to put this in the air for my own account as well as to warn anyone about to do business with him.

If anyone is reading this and knows Matt, telling him to fess up before this gets out of hand would be the smartest thing to do.

One way or another it's getting handled.

Thanks for your time,

Nick

Kyle has been pretty hard to get a hold of lately. I shot him a message to find out whats going on. He's at work and wont answer the phone during the day, and yesterday I know he was out for his birthday. I heard from him over text and he is saying call the cops himself.


The staff here does take accusations of fraud very seriously. We do have a business sponsor and review section, and Itrader... but this doesn't really apply per say because Kyle knew someone and told him about your deal. Not him directly. If Matt has a 240one account it would be against him. Moved to business review for right now since it's an oddball.

Always feel free to notify a staff member if you have trouble, we are here to help. This goes to anyone when a deal goes sour.

Thanks Kurt, I appreciate the assistance.

Based on my research about interstate NSF checks this is serious. I wouldn't have done it otherwise as all of my interactions with One members have been great.

Kyle was/is a good kid, he was upfront and straight with me on every phone conversation.

I don't want to say "Guilty by association" because of his friend. I have been in a similar situation. You just want to help someone out, then it blows up in your face.

I'm looking speaking with the Manchester PD next, i'll keep you posted.

Thanks again.

Happy Birthday my man! I hope it was a good one.

As long as he co-operates, everything will be fine.

You are not a scammer. I know you wanted to help. Thanks for the help.

EDIT: That is the same number that was shut off, so I don't know how I could call him..

Maybe he should just call me.

This is a good reason for never accepting checks.

Either that or: you're paying me and not coming to get your stuff until after this check clears.

I personally think it's retarded when someone PMs me to buy something and they give me an offer and put "cash" next to it. Of course cash, wtf else are you going to pay me in? You want me to get out my hand credit card swiper I store in my garage? Groupons? Gold doubloons? 7-legged spider drawings?

Bring me cash. If you can afford what you're buying, then just pay me for it with currency. Putting "cash" at the end of your lowball offer does not make it any less than a lowball offer than it already is. Don't try to offer me some western union, I'll send you a check crap like we're in some 3rd world country.
