This is pretty interesting. Lots of members and vendors (including Status Gruppe) vouched for Spook in that thread.

If OP didn't have a sale agreement in writing (the Uniform Commercial Code/Statute of Frauds requires a sale of this amount to be in writing), its pretty unlikely the situation can be solved equitably.

I appreciate the heads up as I'm a newbie to the m3 community. It's unfortunate that there are people taking advantage of the automotive community in such a negative way for their own benefit. It's unfortunate you were put in that situation instead of just trusting a person recommended by a friend.

I know we all have to be careful but he did take the guys word for it, which should mean something. I come from the classic bmw 2002 community and most( I mean all my encounters) with the 2002 owners and people I've dealt with have been very pleasant, smooth and easy. The community really comes together to help each other out. I hope we continue to point out those who aren't contributing positively to have a better, trusting community of enthusiasts.

He contacted me about purchasing one of his cars also. After doing some research and finding a spotty history I decided not to continue communication with him. It is pretty weird though that he had vendors vouching for him. Business must be bad to throw credibility down the drain.

Or maybe things aren't black and white. Maybe Spook was an upstanding member of the community 95% of the time, but something happen to him or something happened to the deal?

After reading the entirety of the other post linked, it seems like something went off the rails for the guy (potentially) and he got in a bind, then things just snowballed. Happens to good people. Managing it is all in the response and handling. Sounds like that was a failure here.

I had 12 people text or PM me their own similar stories about Spook shortly after this thread went up.

This is nothing new. His antics have been this way since before I even joined this forum. Sometimes, things are black and white and people are just scummy and out for their own gain.

Fair enough. Obviously, my reading was just based on these two posts.

I was pretty sure there was more background given the *seemingly* quick ban.

That was one of the best reads I've had on Jalopnik...
