Is Shaun the owner of the bike shop, or just a sales person?

I believe he trades as an independent at their facility.

Pretty sure that is just a RCR trick to try and buypass Consumer Protection Act.

What business will have a dodgy guy operating from there premises so long?

Also the fact that they stamped the book shows that they are involved.

RCR is as dodgy as they come. I won't spend any money there other than something on the shelve.

Wonder how much he paid the oomie for the bike?

As a 2nd hand car dealer they will not sell or do anything without knowing everything. Really don't believe he would not have known it is Code 3

It takes all types.
I have bought 3 bikes on this forum over the years.
All the bikes were unseen from members I dont know.
No problems at all, just lucky I guess.

It would be interesting to hear the Oomie's version of the story.......

Clearly the Oomie took Shaun for a ride with code 3 bike , but nowhere in this story do I hear about Shaun taking action against the "Oomie"  :patch:
This is in itself is weird, for a "professional" to buy in a code 3 bike but do nothing against the seller, but rather try to sell the bike on to unsuspecting new buyers

Why don't Shaun name and shame the Oomie?   :pot:

Because Shaun bought a very cheap code 3 and sold it on for big profit.

I wonder if there ever was 'n "oomie"
Seems he knows a lot of buyers from George, wonder if it's George the town or just another person named George?

I wonder if there's a BMW mechanic in Heidelberg that can service BMW's so good that the dealer can put two stamps in service book for it

Maybe another smelling rat

@Rouxman I know you for many years and if ever there was a straight shooter and honest guy who would sell something perfect rather at a loss to accommodate someone else it would be you.

Pity you have to be taken for a ride on your good nature and this guy is not a friend end of story. You are not the first and judging by other stories wont be the last. Get your money back by all means possible and move away from this toxic situation/person as quick as possible.

As ek kan help in enige way ou pel laat weet

Pierre............die joke is dat mense nie hulle huiswerk doen nie.  Hulle is te donners lui om selfs net 'n Google search te doen.
Hulle sien advertensie op hul favourite Facebook groepie en weet nie van beter nie en gaan koop  die bike blind.

Ek en jy is wake-up genoeg maar die volgende ou is naief en dink nie verder nie, en val vir die sales talk ( aka as sales bullshit) en koop
omdat die ou so 'n "nice guy" is.
As jy naief is, dan gaan jy in "trap" inloop en jou gat sien en geld verloor

Mense is skaam om te erken dat hulle ge"bullshit" was  en hou hul monde.  Dit is soortgelyk aan verkragtings. As die victims hul
monde hou, dra hulle by dat daar nog slagoffers gaan wees.  Die verskil is dat die mense jou bankrekening "rape"
Mense moet praat en die inligting deel. Dis tot voordeel van almal.

Baie Sterkte @Rouxman. Hoop die nonsens is gou uitgesort en jy kry al jou geld sommer gou terug!
Is die Shaun persoon op de forum?
As Shaun enige self respek gehad het sou die storie al klaar gewees het.

Was die ou van George Saterdag by jou?

Goeie naand almal,

Baie dankie vir die sentimente en ondersteuning.

Ek sal nou maar sien wat die week gaan op lewer. Dis nou ń bietjie van ń catch 22.

Ek is nie bereid om die fiets te verkoop nie. Ek myslef sal nie meer as R30-35k betaal weetende wat ek nou weet maar ook net as ek bereid is om ń punt te vat met die gedagte dat ek n kaans staan dat dit ń dud is en dalk die bike sal moet verkoop as parte as dit flop.

Shaun hoop op die verkoop van die fiets om my geld terug te gee en ek s not on my watch.

So sy enigste opsie is ń refund. Daarna kan hy maak wat hy wil. Ek hoop net dat die fiets teen daai tyd al genoeg populariteid bereik het dat dit maar eerder as parte verkoop word.

Dat ek actually my geld gaan terug kry dink ek is wishfull thinking.

Oor die laaste 15jaar het ek nou al so 16/17 bikes gehad. Party nuut, ander gebruik. Ek is redelik vertroud met die fietse en diens ook my ouer bikes self. Ek is vr van ń master mechanic af maar is gemaklik met die spanners.

Bonop dit vertrou ek mense moeilik.

Met die fiets was dit die een keer wat ek besluit het om iemand meer te vertrou as gewoonlik.

Ek wou glad nie ja s sonder om die NaTIS te sien nie maar toe Shaun vir my s dat hy my ń geld terug waarborg gee, daar is ń winkel, hy het gemeng met dieselfde groepe as ek en met die gedagte dat hy ń vriend is, het ek gedink dat daar nie ń manier is dat hy my sal bevark nie.

As hy maar net ges het nadat ek hom ten minste twee keer gevra het of die NaTIS wys of dit ń kode 3 is, dat hy nie eintlik weet nie want hy het dit nog nie gesien nie, was dit ń hele ander storie.

Die beste wat ek nou voor kan hoop is bewus making dat mense uit dit leer en ook lig loop met Shaun.

Die George ou het nog glad nie in kontak gekom met my nie.

Ek hou jul op hoogte.

Dis n moeiliek een.

Ek glo nie hy het meer die geld om n refund te doen nie..
Om die sale van die fiets te briek, beteken dat jy jou geld terug, ook briek.

Ek verstaan wat jy bedoel, deur nie die fiets aan iemand anders te wil verkoop nie. Jou morele waardes is reg.

Maar daai morele waardes gaan jou R80 000 kos.

Catch 22 soos jy se.

Ai man, sterkte  8) :thumleft:

Hy het egter nooit gese, ek sal jou refund, sodra ek eers die fiets weer n keer verkoop het nie! So sy mielie. As dit ek was, en hy se bring die bike, ek gee jou geld op die spot terug, het ek dit gedoen. Dan gee ek nie om wat hy verder met die bike doen, of wie hom weer koop nie. Maar nes jy, moet hy my ook nie betrek by die verkoop nie, want soos jy gese het, dan word jy deel vd scam/scheme.

Sterkte Roux-man.   :thumleft:

Ek het die man gekontak via "messenger" op marketplace en gevra in watter toestand die fiets is.  Hy het teruggekom en soek my tel nr om te praat oor die fiets. 
Ek wil egter nie my nr gee nie, wetende ek gaan hom k@k gee wanneer hy my kontak en dit gaan moontlik die verkoop van die bike belemmer, dit gaan terselfde tyd jou kanse om jou geld terug te kry, belemmer.    Soos jy se, 'n catch 22 situasie.   :patch:

Ek kan nog steeds nie glo die man doen dit aan sy "vriend" nie.   :eek7: :eek7: :eek7:

Jammer om hiervan te hoor. Ja/nee wragtig - dat jou vriend so iets an jou kan doen (maar ek het ook al sulke "vriende" gehad). Ek neem aan julle het nie die afgelope naweek saam gebraai nie  :imaposer: - ek spot maar dit is 'n ernstige saak.

Wat se jou regspersoon? Belemmer dit nie jou saak dat jy besit van die fiets behou nie? Ek praat nou van 'n regsperspektief - ek meen - jy het die fiets gekoop, daarvoor betaal, dit is in jou naam geregistreer en jy het die fiets by jou. So al wat jy het is wat hy vir jou gese het - dis goed dat jy iets in skrif het. Sal dit nie beter wees om iets op skrif op te stel en die fiets by hulle gaan aflewer en hom daardie dokument laat teken nie? As jou regspersoon 'n dokument kan opstel wat se jy besorg die fiets terug aan hulle omdat x.y.z ens en hy teken daarvoor en dat hy x dae het om jou geld terug te betaal - dan is die onus op hom om die saak reg te stel. As jy die fiets behou dan is dit moeiliker want dit beteken (in my kop in elk geval) dat dit vir jou aanvaarbaar is. Hy hoef eintlik niks te doen nie want al wat jy het is wat hy vir jou gese het - maar jy is gelukkig om die fiets te behou.

Ek is nie 'n regspersoon nie - ek dink maar net harduit  :imaposer:

Sterkte - ek hoop jy kry jou geld terug. Ek het maar R20 000 so 15 jaar terug aan 'n sogenaamde "vriend" verloor - maar R80 000 - ai.
Ja/Nee

Ek sien ivm die vorige situasie van die Willowmore tebakel probeer hy homself nog verdedig, in die proses het hy net vir hom 'n groter gat gegrou. die dat hy die comments afgeskakel het op facebook.

Jammer om van jou situasie te hoor. Ek dink in die geval as jy enige geld gaan terugkry sal dit 'n wen wees.
