kh1243- sounds like you had a really bad experience, however the E-Bay numbers don't reflect bad dealings: 400+ transactions & 100% positive feedback. Did you not submit a negative feedback based on your dealing with this seller? Just curious, as no negative feedbacks are listed.

Here are some BBB reports. They have an A+ rating (but that doesn't mean much http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/busine...ry?id=12123843).

Hi Neil

I saw the car on ebay, got all the information and photos, when it did not sell I negotiated direct with Daniel Schmitt & Co. I did complain to ebay but they said because I did not buy direct through them, they could do nothing.
Then I tried BBB and Attorney General, but all said they could do nothing, although we had a case to complain. Read my blog if you would like to know more. Also on rip off report.

Hi KH1243

Very lucky read your blog and comments as I was already making enquiries on this car. I too am in Australia. Very unusual interior, wrong console and radio, saddle seats and trims but ivy green interior....hmmm very suspicious. Like the colour though.

Did you manage to rid of the CSGT you bought ?

Hello Ray

Yes I stil have the car, have not done anything with it. A complete rip off.
Don't know where to start.!! When I bought the car they could not get it out of USA quick enough.

I would love to talk to you, or I can ring you. MY number is 0401656136.
Regards Kevin. Victoria
