The reason I ask is I recently purchased a used deck from him and have had difficulty with shipping (ups seems to have lost the package). I have tried texting but haven't heard anything for a few days and starting to wonder if ill ever see the deck or my money again. He has been honest so far (as far as I know anyway) but the deck was paid for over a month ago. Just curious if anyone knew him personally or have ever had any dealings with him. It's just not my business to make loans.

overstreet31, If I'm thinking of the right person he came off to me as a sketchy dude. I would be hesitant to say you're getting your money back.

But then again I could have the wrong face associated with the username.

hate hearing this kind of stuff about fellow wakeskaters... but the way it usually goes is, if it seems sketchy.. its probably sketchy... whats sad to me is that fact that some one would compromise their integrity of a few hundred dollars.... is that all your worth as a person??? hope you get your money or your deck bro.

Yeah it's not looking good for either. Been two months since he said he shipped the deck and still nothing. And I believe it has been over a week since he claims to have sent a refund check(not too sure about it though.). His stories he told just never matched up. So just a heads up to everyone on here, don't buy anything from winch4fun unless you just want to make a donation to his bank account. His cell # is 830-220-0788 in case you see something posted on Craigslist. I'm pretty sure it is the San Antonio Texas area (marble falls maybe?) and his name is Rudy Isner. BUYER BEWARE!

Edit: he still has the board posted for sale on Craigslist dated 7/14/13 even though I paid for the deck on 6/1/13.

Looks like it's been deleted now. What board was it?

This is a real bummer. It's why I'm a bit sketched by long distance craigslist transactions. I know of one other close call that was averted, strictly by chance and connections on here. I feel lucky to have never lost money that way.

I guess it's just a price you pay for as many transactions as I have done over craigslist I was bound to have found one. Just hate it was for a skate and not for one of the many random things I buy off that site. I am really lucky it hasn't happened before.

miller, no sweat on your back bud. It could have happened to anyone at anytime. Just a chance we all take purchasing something long distance.

As it turns out, If I would have done a little research prior to and known the guys name, I would have seen a couple old (2008) threads on here regarding the same guy. Apparently his old username was eviiil and had a few complaints on some other forums as well.

I actually got a text someone claiming to be his ex-girlfriend that claims she has the deck and was holding it because she was mad at him. Now if only I can get the deck. I really hope it pans out for my sake and for winch4fun's. I would like for him to be able to clear his name and me also get my skate.
