    Getting screwed by NOOB2VFRS

    Some of you might recall my "adventure" with my saddlebag. The bag fell off and got scratched up pretty badly. I posted the story on the forum and NOOB2VFRS (aka Nathan Rogers) said that he would fix the bag for a good price. As he was a member of the forum and previous experience with this type of thing was positive I agreed to send him the bag, along with a check of about $110.00 for the work and postage back. That was in July. After numerous attempts to get hold of him I finally got a response on September 14 that he was sorry and that he had been busy and he would ship it out that Tuesday. After almost a month of continued attempts to contact him I have heard nothing from him. Right now I feel like both my bag and my money have been stolen by him.

    I'm not sure whether some peer pressure would help, but I sure would appreciate it if I could get the help of the forum members to get my bag back. Don't even care about the money at this point. Was thinking that a bunch of PMs to him might shame him into returning the bag. Not sure what other recourse I have.

    Thanks for your help.

    Good Luck. Hopefully it will work out. Not knowing is the worst part.

    I'd also suggest that you edit the subject line and member name to change to the actual member: "NOOB2VFRS" (you missed the F)

    This might help others to find the member...

    Man, that is just not good Michael. I am sorry to hear of your trouble with this member. There is no excuse for that. He should have sent your bag back to you when he contacted you a month ago. The only excuse I could see being valid is that he is dead, in a coma, or incarcerated. Seeing as how he contacted on month ago, he must not really care. I do hope you get your bag back.

    Please do keep us updated. Bad services/scams need to be reported when they do happen.

    His name is Nathan Rogers and the address he gave me was:

    The zip is a digit off, should read 37602. Just incase anybody wants to see where it is. Or come for a weekend of riding and BBQ. You know, we could turn this into a good thing. Lots of great roads &......MMMMM, BBQ

    Too bad about the bags. Hopefully he gets these posts and it's all just a misunderstanding. If it's not, I'm not too far away in FL and we can get some vigilante justice!! Kidding, but that area is so close to the mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway that it might just beg for the trip.

    Hey stuff happens hope it gets resolved and all are happy.
    I agree the not knowing is the worst part, next time there is contact ask for a phone number that way you can get peice of mind or ask him to ship them back.

    RL may have gotten in the way but he should still contact you.

    for those asking

    "East,Tn. Im about 15 mins from Bristol...Plus Deals Gap is about 1 hr away..."

    Hi,
    it is good to see members who help a VFR guy, but...IMO Michel has to ask to his bank who "cashed" the check and where...
    Good Luck.

    Name/Address/Phone? You'd be surprised the power of other members "reaching" out. ;)

    If he own a house, Some one here have a business can put a lean on his house. Or better yet ride out there kindly ask him for the Bags back..............If not let me know I will send some of my connection down there. But it will not be pretty.

    Thanks to a member I have his work phone number. Think I scared the @#$% out of him when I got hold of him. Promised the bag was shipped. Waiting for the tracking #. I'll make his life hell at work now if nothing comes of it. He's probably still wondering how I got the phone number. I'll leave that member unnamed to protect the innocent.

    Your responses have been great and I appreciate the support. Definitely chose the right bike.
