Hey Guys,

Ok I have a problem, im sure you remember when I lost a few hundred $$ with Northeast Auto Inc, and fellow board member Nemises came to the rescue having a ton of the parts i needed to finish my car, alot of interior parts, exterior parts, finishing touches parts and a full set of 944 Turbo brakes and suspension, with all the parts to fit them to my car, basically a TON of parts..

The reason that I actually trusted this guy, is we have worked together for many years with decals, both for him personally and company, some decal trades were done through the company I work at, so I had reason to trust him..

He claimed to ship the parts many weeks ago, and now they are 4 weeks over due (claimed 10 weeks to arrive, and now it has been 14) he had emailed me after 9 weeks saying they should soon arrive, since then he has ignored all my emails, not returned a single phone call (I made many and left many messages) his cell seems to be always turned off..

Does anyone know this guy personally?

The stakes: $1000!

SparkY

I think there are people here in the states who are also anxious to hear from Nemmy or learn more about his real identity.

They will probably post in this thread. . .perhaps if you shared what contact information you have (by PM), someone could give you a hand getting his attention.

Good luck. . .

Hey morghen,

I wish I did, but as I said, I actually really trusted this guy.. looks to be almost $1400 lost between my two last attempts on parts..

I just tried to give call him again, and no luck.. to be fair, if he does turn out good, I will post here right away and let everyone know..

But 14 weeks later, it looks to be a very slim chance of that happening!

Yeah, he owes my friend some phone dials.. :-/ Maybe he will come around and get stuff dealt with. Looking doubtful now though.

Yeah, seems he has disappeared a few months ago, and has more than a few people looking for him, here, rennlist, and pelican.


I hope the best. And I hope Nemesis isn't who we hate to think he is.

Hey Mark,
you know that I understand how pissed off you are, and I`m sure you followed my previous thread here about this criminal.

I started one on Rennlist too and more victims came forward. Heres a few links:

http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/showthread.php?t=366212
http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/showthread.php?t=338585

Some people think he`s in Michigan, some say California, some think hospital, others the grave, or more likely jail IMO.

Personally I think I`m wasting time and stress trying to locate this Ahole but realize you have lost considerably more.

Why don`t you post all the details you have on him here, others may be able to add to it. This thief has generated a lot of bad karma and if anyone is able to pay him a visit, I for one am happy to chip in for a baseball bat.

Roger

i'm realy sorry for you guys...i almost payed for a complete 931 engine to Nemesis...then i realised its too damn far away and i could be buying anything or nothing for my money. And the US specs 931 sucks. Its best to buy used parts in person...or at least buy from closer sources that you can(in an event of fraud) go visit with a few friends.

As i told to sparky i have a source for 924/944 and maby 968 parts here in EUROPE that has been supplying me for the last 3 years and EVERY singe deal went just sweet. It is true the prices are not so cheap as in the US but then again...its worth it.

PS: Raceboy i have a snailshell, if you want it PM me.

I'm from Michigan. I don't have any confirmed plans in the immediate future to come to Europe, but there is a slight possibility I may be there in October.

Regarding the undercurrent suggestion that Nemesis = My924gtc (aka Mark Johnston), I am fairly certain they are two different people. I live near Mark, I know him personally, and I am fairly confident that Nemesis is different crook altogether.

I'm basing that opinion on some of the cars and projects Nemesis discussed which I know for a fact Mr. Johnston doesn't have. Also, if you read thru the posts, you see that the so-called Sid from Hausbrauen and Mr Johnston are actually one and the same, whereas the language, personality, writing style, etc. of Nemesis are completely different. Mark could never help himself with respect to keeping quiet once he got a burr under his saddle. Nemesis displayed a different approach altogether when under attack.

I could be wrong, but that's just my dollar-point-oh-two.

What seems so weird is that Nemesis and I were doing that crank pulley deal with Dave, and 3/4 of the way through it, he disappeared. So who knows what happend.
