Well POA valve that Randy sold me was no good but he just blew me off.
Said there must be something wrong with a/c system on my truck.

My advice: don't do business with this person (if he's ever reinstated to the forum).

He is permanently banned

Watch out for Randy Lucero anywhere else you see him. Since his banishing I have had more people than I can count, first curious what happened, then spilling out their complaints as well as others bad issues other members have had. If anyone else is curious why he was banned, all I'll say is ask around you will soon get a good picture of who he was and how he treated people. A bad actor. I'm sorry he screwed you over on the POA valve. I wish I had smelled this rat sooner.

I only wish that most of these folks would had come forward when the incidents happened. It may had saved others from having problems. We have a handful of people defending this users actions. He did have good relationships with some. What they need to understand is we have many folks who did not. If this applies to you, be grateful you are not one of the ones that did not.

Damn, I consider myself lucky. I hate to hear this, about ANYONE on this board, but you just really never know.

I purchased a column from him and had no issues with the transaction. He had even sent me his cell number and we communicated a few times about the wire covers for the tilt columns. I guess I am now wondering if my column is what it is supposed to be on the inside?? These post about him don't really explain if he just didn't follow through on sales or if he was selling rebuilt stuff that wasn't.

I think your column is probably fine. I don't think Randy is a bad person.
He did sell some bad parts but maybe unintentional.
I just have a problem with sellers who won't take a return when the
buyer is willing pay return shipping.

Maybe it's time to lock this thread and move on ?

Thank you. I think you are right. I had the shop pull the column open this morning as they were about to paint it. The wiring is bad on the turn signal switch (bare wires) so that will have to be replaced, but otherwise it looked good.

bold emphasis mine. if this was truly important to you, should have installed trader ratings a long time ago..

bantering with me over who is going to ask Josh who I have personally never seen post here is just a waste of time..

in the mean time more and more of your loyal paying members are getting bamboozled..

and some that may be on the fence of trading fairly or not may fall to the better side to maintain good reviews..

there really is absolutely no good reason not to activate it immediately and encourage your membership to use it.

We had a rating system in place for years. It was abused and taken out. Maybe it is time to look into it with the upgrade. Why wouldn't it be important to me? I am the one who ends up mediating most bad deals. However, I can not do that if I am unaware there is a bad deal.

We have a review area, reported posts and feedback. I truly do apologize if that is not what you feel works. Most times it does, many more times than the seller rep ratings ever did previously.

Discussing? Because you do not agree with what is said does not qualify it as banter. I would think the quote here is though? I can assure you Josh is a real human person. He works full time, runs the site and if you look on his profile, does post. Unfortunatly it is not as often as when the site was small.

I really do appreciate your thoughts and ideas. You should probably sign up for staff when we request again.

Thanks and rest assured we do have the communities best interest at heart. Even the members that enjoy to stir the pot every now and then.

This is an unfortunate. I didn't know the guy personally and I never bought anything from him, but he did lend me a hand on a small project with nothing in return from my end besides a thank you. He treated me well, but I guess on the business end it was different.

Randy wasn't all bad. In fact, he was a very helpful poster on the message board. He brought services and good parts to the board that helped a lot of members. He went beyond just selling the part. I have heard all that, too. But he wasn't all good either. He messed up

I bought one of his wiper delay switches. Doesn't work and he won't return email messages. Glad it was a low buck purchase.

Someone once told me a whole lot of atta boys get erased by one oh S**t!

I bought a short tilt from him. I have not installed it yet (probably a year away). I hope I have no problems but it is what it is. I am sure it will be just fine (I hope).

Re: Randy500
 
I have met Randy, I have bought parts from Randy, Randy has bought parts from me. Do I trust Randy, not as far as I could throw him.

I think he feeds on the gullible folks who may have questions. I have seen his communication with others and it seemed a little different than his communication with me.

Its really funny to me what people that don't know you will tell you about someone else.

Re: Randy500
 
Interesting, not sure how I missed this thread after so many months. But very early on my membership here I bought a tilt shorten column from him. It arrived pretty quick and was boxed very well. It would have had to fallen out of an airplane to get busted up (I do exaggerate a bit). Nothing screamed at me that it was poorly put together or packed.

After installing it a few months later, the only problem I had with it was in one direction a turn signal would not cancel. I do remember asking him what could be the problem and how to "adjust or fix it". I did not get anything helpful at all from him. He did reply to my PMs but no real help was provided. It was like "why are you bothering me?" I eventually got it working after taking the wheel off and watching what the mechanism was doing (or actually not doing) and adjusting it and was happy to move on.

Now fast forward to today, I now have a new problem: when I am braking (brake on) and I turn on the right turn signal my fuse blows that drives the Brake/Running/Dash/Dome lights. The worst part, I am not sure how long I been driving with no brake lights (I hardly drive at night).

So I try to see if Randy500 can help me at all but he is banned.... I feel a bit lost now.

You might want to talk to Vette over on the electrical side and see if he can help you with that issue.

Rich72C10 01-21-2021 12:05 PM

Re: Randy500
 
Thank you Rickysnickers - I did start a thread because I was so confused at first, I thought for sure I did something silly myself. Right now I have it stabilized but no telling how long that will last. I do for see pulling the wheel and the signal mech out in my (hopefully distant) future.

If it wouldn't have been for his "door assembly" thread I would have never got my doors back together. I will admit though I never bought anything from him, or dealt with him on any matter.
