Default Scam Alert Matthew Barrett

Well it looks like Matthew Barrett aka perfect regulator aka mag mountz and what ever other company names he is using is taking money and not shipping the products I have mouths-of text and failed promises of the product has been shipped! Beware of this scammer. I will be posting this on all RC sites, Roban helicopters and sending it to all RC clubs In the AZ area.

I almost placed a order with them for some blade lights until i realized it said back order or whatever it said.. I don't like to order unless its a in stock item.

You are right but I bank appear to see it on my view is it a sub directory?

He's right. I didn't even know there was a scammer alert forum, and I've been on here 10 years.

I primarily use the New Posts option and read them when they show up even in the Scammer forum.

Luckily I've not been scammed even by a couple of first time sellers I took a chance on here.

That is all i do, unless i'm looking for something. I hit the "new posts" every time.. I wish all the sites i went to had it, far i know only this one and traxxas sites have it.

Sad to hear. He did this a few years ago when going through some tough times, but rebounded and even designed some new products.

Yeah, I know. Didn't mean to sound like an a-hole.
I had just crashed my Chinook and wasn't feeling very happy.

Call him out in the RC Heli Hangouts FB group. That's what I had to do to get my discharger that I sent in for repair. He had it for over 6 months!! I made a post on FB, he sent one out within a week to replace it. Sucks it had to come to that, but I won't be ordering from him again.

That was the result of being called out on facebook in the RC heli hangout group last night.... The timing is no coincidence.

I have purchased a lot of MD-6 parts from him and never had an issue.

Always received the items very rapidly too.
