Got ripped off by a Craigslist seller on a used Detroit Locker, been stewing about what to do about it ever since.
His story is not backed up by the evidence when I look at the damage inside the locker itself.
He claims he put an 8.8 in his XJ, then, not having any use for the D35 any longer he pulled the locker out & put it up for sale. His listing claims it's in "good condition" and "works awesome".
According to Eaton, the damage is consistent with driving some distance on a spacesaver spare. Looks like he blew up his pinion and took out the locker at that time.
He admits to taking the locker apart "to make sure everything was OK" before selling it, but now feels no responsibility when it's evident that everything is not OK.
I realize I'm only out $100 and should probably be the better man and just let it go... but I'm not feeling that charitable.
I'd like to let him become the next Charlie Wenzel (if you are not familiar, Google his name, it's worth the time), a cautionary tale for Craigslist sellers the world over who may be tempted to pass their junk off as useable parts.
Is anyone in the Willamette Valley area interested in helping me track this young man down so he can be made an example of? (Of course, I'd be willing to give him his broken locker back in exchange for my $100)
All I've got so far is his first name, cell #, the town he lives in and the town he works in. I may be able to pick him up on his commute home and get his physical address that way, haven't tried that yet.
