I have dealt with Andrew Thompson before.. The name is appropriate ATM...
He'll sport with your ATM car once he has the number..For example
a) quadrupling the prices quoted once the card number is sent
b) 3 to 4 times the post saying "Post and packing"
c) putting VAT on the post
d) putting VAT on export out of EU zone...

Then abusive and threatening emails and refusal to refund even when fax is in hand saying "send it back I'll refund the card"..and postal receipts show delivery back.

Andrew Thompson ran several spoof names on ebay---all to same place place in Whitam, Essex---because his feedback got so many brutally negative comments..
.Naturally every single unhappy customer were all "numpties" or something ...
Credit card companies and banks did nothing.

Andrew Thompson and ATM in its various guises (ATM or ATM Sport) are notorious in the Cosworth world in UK....so this is guy and anybody associated with ATM or if he finds a co-conspirator in this side, should be avoided.

See ya Thompson, bye!

I would happily be your US agent. Please send me all the products on net 30 terms and I will have my agent contact you regarding payment as soon as possible. I assume a cashier's check will be okay, it will be issued from the Royal Bank of Nigeria as that is where all my money is after my 6th cousin twice removed won the lottery but then died suddenly and turns out I was the only living kin.

Nice move threatening John with legal action for "internet slander" then immediately slandering John on another webpage with no context. You sound like a great business to work with. thumbs down

Oh I got the right parts, I din't say anyhing about that--too bad for all the nice buts you have you are still unable to read very well..Shitty schools in Essex?
They didn'yt teach you anyhing about tactics or law either..did they.
And I do not copy your parts any more than you copy Ford's parts.
(duh! Again how stupid are you?)

Tip on tactics:
Don't make implied threats in email or online like this you sent (I mean how fucking dumb are you, Thompson? a 9" diff fall off a shelf and ding you in the head?
Hasn't it occured to you that I might still have the correspondence and receipt showing the jack up prices and VAT on post and VAT on export? Not very bright there Thompson, really.)

Please feel free to call at my office when you come to the UK next time and we will see if you have the balls to say anything to my face ,

That's implied threat.

Next, one thing that we share with you thieving English scum is the foundations of our laws..
It is such a shame more fraudsters and con-artists don't at least make some minimal effort to familiarize themselves with a few basics---aside from the ones they intentionally choose to violate like mail fraud, bait-and-switch, mislabeling, claiming VAT and pocketing it (tsk tsk tsk Inland Revenue ought to have a visit) and that is this:
In "Defamation" actions, there's a simple phrase: The Truth is the ultimate defense...


Think---if you can manage that, you dimwitted wanker, you know that you ran several concurrent ID on Ebay because you're a thieving bastard and feedback would get bad and so you'd close the account..
That is the truth and is provable.

You know that on all the UK forums if there is a feedback part that you're there as one of the bad guys..I know this because I have read things there, matched with my experience so its true..Hell I have even found people on Swedish forums saying "seems like suspicious character", and "Seems like the typical English scammer" and I have even spoken with and helped out a couple of guys there in getting the parts they needed...It helps being fluent in more than one language...
These things are true and provable.

You came here and first violated this forums rules.
You did not post under your full correct name Andrew Thompson, a cardinal violation.
You did not did not provide your correct full location, a second violation....YOUR address, not the shop address in Whitham. Your address.

Your first post under a fictitious name and no location was an attempt to sell stuff.. Not a forum rule violation but a normal Internet courtesy violation...

And when you get a response appropriate to who you are you instantly resort to bullying threats of legal action here and ominous threats in email..

You respond to people saying anything with your normal abusive language...exactly as you have done as far as I can tell forever...

All these things are consistent and are a pattern of behavior.

All true and all provable...

Its is 47 minutes since I emailed you to forward whatever lawyers you have been in contact with here in the US within 20 minutes... Your response was "LOL"..
A brilliant answer...showing how serious you are.

Let's keep this simple:
Fuck off and look elsewhere to sell your stuff... There is effectively zero market for it, its a waste of time. US Merkur people are all broke ass dreamers except an exceedingly rare few who are uninterested in really good bits, they want 10 x 18 wheels and carbon-fiber "angry eyes grilles".

Your attitude has been noted..
Go away.

Re: ATM
I have to agree about their prices.
Bought from them three times, first two was Ok but I asked them to never send without sending a final invoice, and the next order they send anyway and since they have the credit card number they just charge whatever the fuck they wanted. They give me some prices on some boring bits and then
a) nearly quadrupled their prices over their quotes
b) charge 4 times for Parcelforce sending the things to the US according to Parcelforce web site
c) charged VAT on all this inflated prices for export to the USA after previously correctly no charging VAT on export to Non EU country. And added the VAT to the parcelforce charges!
d) and this is the pisser: fucked about with returns and crediting my card back for over a year
e) never did credit the £250 deposit on a thickwall diff when I demanded it back when they showed themselves to be dishonest cowboys.

They charged like £45 for a used intermediate plate between the gearbox and block, I had ordered 4wd, they sent 2wd, They cost around £12.80 new.
charged £27 for used scaper seals for top on 41mm Bilstein struts, new around £4 according to Gartrac
Charged some stupid price for a 4wd LHD turbo heatsheils which just ahppened to be a rhd 2wd.
Some stupid price for a fuel rail and pressure regulator as GpA which was a standard bit soldered up.

Their excuse after stonewalling and lying like the sacks of crap they are was "Well we really don't have to credit you anything as that business has ceased trading"
To which I asked wot the fook is the difference? Same name, same address and same phone numbers!!!???
"That was ATM, this is ATM Sport Ltd"

As to prices "parts are worth whatever a person is willing to pay for them.."

I sorta tried to remind the bastard that I was willing to pay the quoted prices for the correct parts and the correct Postal charges.

Great fuck as person around for over a year and then say Who us? I'm not the same Andy Thompson you talked to at the same number last year....

And this geezer Lee Pain is obviously a close friend or close associate who is constantly on the RSOC board listing ATM bits on the normal non-trader section, and writes me a note saying I'm some sorta lying scum and threatening me with legal action when I made a comment about their trading practices, can't get to private messages there or I'd post it here.
I say fine, if your fucking useless fucking Courts would actually do anything, maybe I'd get me thickwall diff or my £250 back.

Never did get the thickwall diff case or a refund...

Same shit now..The guy is pathological, or psychopathological.

Its a shame cause if he didn't fuck with people and lie (calling bone stock road car parts "Group N" and non-homologated parts Group A, and didn't jerk around with post he could have sold a lot more stuff...a LOT more. But like a lot of greedy scum he's too stupid to be smart.
