I have to share this because I still can't believe what I'm seeing ... Some of you might remember that I purchased my '97 LC off of EBay . You might also remember the ordeal that it became ...

Tonite I got on the web with a co-worker . I said , 'hey , lets look up the dealership that I bought my LC off of ' . I went to EBAy's site and placed the dealerships name in the search engine , and got nothing . Not too surprising sice only a few months ago when I did that , I discovered the owner had been suspended from EBay .

Next I placed the dealerships name into google.ca . Here's the page that came up :

When you get down towards the 'The Arrest , The "****BERG" INDICTMENT"' you'll see the owners name '************* ", the alleged owner of *B* Motors . Turns out that according to Interpol , he's part of one of the worlds largest ecstasy smuggling crime organizations . Seems he used car-sales proceeds to launder money .

And to think I ate lunch with the guy , spent a few days with him and his Turkish brothers , and have a number of friendly 5x7 glossy's to prove it !

Just goes to show you .. buyer beware --- of seller !

Cheers ,

Tyler

Tyler,
Glad to hear from you again! Think about this - If you have some 5 X 7's the Gov't probably has some too featuring you.

Woody , I bought a used b-flat cornet in grade eight *G* . Never followed up on the previous owner though .... all I know is the poor thing was dented so bad all over , it looked like rather 'crinkled' :)

Gee , maybe I shouldn't have traded in those tires so quickly .. :p

Interesting to look back at the situation as it played out , now that I have this information . For instance , I took their secretary out for lunch while I was down in Houston , and she went on and on about this guy she was falling for . She'd meet him on weekends on his farm , yadda yadda . BUT the interesting pc of info there is he was DEA !!! So was she also an agent , or was she an unwitting pipeline of intel back to the Dept. ? Lots to reflect on ... 8)

Peace , Tyler
