    I just read HolyCannoli's thread about his dealings with you...you should be ashamed. :boid You take a fellow community member's hard earned cash and then send false promises of sending what appears to be a good product. All your half assed emails to him are in this broken ass english when after reading this thread clearly you have a better grasp on the language. I don't care what is happening in your personal life, there is no reason to treat people like this. You do nothing but make people skeptical of home grown businesses, the vast majority of which is honest small guys trying to get by.

    @disgruntled customers, post up here on his thread all the ways to get in touch with him and where to leave bad feedback. If we can't get you your money back at least we can tank his business.

    No idea huh? You accept payment, string people along for 6 months with false promises and it takes some guy on here to shame you into finally sending the boxes. You are almost assured to never get anymore business from anyone here, so you might want to take your own advice:deal

    This thread should stay alive as a warning, but the thread title should be changed to read konvoi is a scam

    I think "you've been konvoi'd" as suggested in his vendor thread is better than "corndogged":D

    the term "thief" comes to mind when reading the buying sucess history- not just an isolated instance
    also "BS" (how would that translate so he understands?)

    Guys...this is a professional crook. He knows how to postpone you indefinitely, sometimes showing cases with postage ready to be shipped etc. It's not going to happen, and even then you will receive some cases that will not fit or not finished. It's happening to people from Romania too. I was lucky to get my money back, but only because I took action immediately (only took 3 months).
    Again, my advice: make a formal complaint to the local police, if there are at least 2-3 persons the police will take action, especially he was under investigation (possibly convicted) for at least 2 other fraud cases.
    I'm sure we can also help with translations and other info (the inmates from Romania). Personally I'm tired to see foreign people being ripped-off by Romanians, and it's worse when it involves bikers, because we share this passion.

    Wow, Istvan seems to have a following.

    For what it's worth I bought a pair of cases about this time last year. He was backordered for holiday and they did come a bit late (and they did get buried with snow last Jan). He was responsive and this was shipping to USA.

    So I do not see a bad guy, perhaps the work load was too much to keep up with. My cases are cracking (top inside corners) so I need to email him to see what he suggests. But otherwise it was not a bad experience.

    My feeling at time was I would rather support the small guy. Sorry some folks had different luck.
