Review updated:

We purchased an i7 CPU from this "company" through ebay. The guy claimed to have the part, said it would be fast shipping, all the good stuff. We purchased the item and immediately sent him an email asking to expedite the order because the parts were needed for a repair. Needless to say this guy never wrote back... We tried several times, sending numerous emails and still this perpetrator ignores all emails and avoids all contact... We then obtained a phone number oh this guy through eBay, and tried to give him a call... We called many times, left many messages and still no response.. Then I paid for a personal investigation on this guy (in which I was able to obtain all personal information on him including his phone number and where he lives) and I tried calling another number, he did not answer neither. Several days later, I sent a last email informing him that I will then go the next step and contact Paypal and eBay and notify them of fraud charges... Here is a copy and paste of his response:

"I appologize, I have been quite sick and haven't been in the office this
week. Your item should have gone out already (I've got an employee there
but apparently things haven't been shipped). The scan doesnt always
update online. But if it hasn't ill ship it out USPS Express for free
($18 overnight service). Fair enough?"

The email came several hours after I informed him of the scam charges that were coming... I replied back to him and he never responded... It has come to our conclusion that this guy in fact does not have the parts he claims to have and is simply stalling to either acquire the parts or try to pass the time so a chargeback is not possible. Here is just some of the information I have to identify this person:

Entity Number:C3440767
Date Filed:12/20/2011
Entity Address:926 KIRK COURT
Entity City, State, Zip:RIPON CA 95366
Agent for Service of Process:JARED VAN NIEUWENHUYZEN
Agent Address:926 KIRK COURT
Agent City, State, Zip:RIPON CA 95366

This is the free information that was obtained at: http://kepler.sos.ca.gov/cbs.aspx

Ultimately, I will get the money back that we paid him because we already filed the dispute with eBay and have already spoken with Paypal. But unfortunately for this criminal, he cost us a lot of money considering that this part was a very expensive part that was for business and not personal use. He caused us days of downtime that I have documented in full throughout the days (hundreds of dollars a day, going into a few thousands of dollars), we lost a customer and a repair order (which adds to the damage caused). Everything about this case has been documented in full, from the phone calls, to the messages, even how long it takes him to respond and refund our money. Primarily, because we will be filing a suit to retrieve the money we lost due to damages. Not only can we afford it, but any amount of money that is spent to pursue a criminal such as this individual is worth every penny simply to give him the same inconvenience he has given us.

In conclusion, I can only warn anyone who is considering purchasing from CENTRAL VALLEY COMPUTER PARTS, INC, or doing any type of business with this so called company, to STAY VERY FAR AWAY FROM HIM. This is not a company you are dealing with, this is an individual by name of "Jared VanNieuwenhuyzen" who is only out to get your money and you will also have to go the extra mile to get your money back, the same way we did. The only difference is most people cannot afford to go to the extends that we can, so for this reason I can only share our experience and warn the community that this guy is a fraud, a criminal and he won't even give you the respect of responding. Save your money and stay far from Central Valley Computer Parts, Inc. - THIS IS NOT A LEGITIMATE BUSINESS OR COMPANY!

    I am confused about this issue. You purchase an item, then after the purchase and payment, you decided to change the shipping terms? Was this a Buy Now item? Make an offer item?

    Lets walk thru the options.
    1. You won an item on auction, the shipping was set and it said fast shipping but gave you no opportunity to ask for expressed shipping. In this case, you win and immediately ask for expedited shipping (and you are willing to pay the extra). So the expectation would be that the seller is responsive (within 12-24hrs). Your complaint is that the seller was not responsive in order to change the order to match your requirements.

    In this case, if the seller is not immediately responsive, then you have the option to cancel the order and are at the mercy of the seller to do so. According to the eBay terms, there is no scam no fraud here. If the seller however does not ship or decided to ship without first contacting you that would be a different issue. Or if the part is offered with a refund, then logic says if he can't expedite the shipping your basically going to do an immediate return.

    Thus in case #1 the only scam would be if the seller fails to ship in the time frame allowed by the auction, Or if the seller claimed he shipped the item and actually did not ship it.

    #2 You did a Buy now. This is a bit different than #1 as sometimes you can leave a note for the seller. If the seller doesn't like the terms he can cancel the order. Otherwise, he/she will reply back to you and arrange to complete the order. Again the same situation applies above if the seller does not say in his listing that he will amend the order after payment. Of course, if the seller has a return policy then the buyer is immediately invoking the return policy if the order can not be amended. In all these cases this is not a scam. In fact, in all these cases the buyer is hoping that the seller extends "goodwill" to the buyer.

    #3 You did a make offer and in the offer, you requested expedited shipping. Then in this case, if the seller does not contact you the offer should be rejected. If the seller accepts but fails to follow thru then that is not acceptable. You could call it a scam if this is the seller's mode of operation.

    I have looked over the seller's account, He has 2 negative feedback (none match yours) and around 12 neutral (one matches your description, where they wanted a different shipping arrangement but the seller stuck to what they were bound to by the auction terms). This leads me to believe that eBay sided with the seller and that your expectations while they make perfect business sense would require the seller to extend your goodwill by ignoring the contractural obligations after the sale. As you aptly say, based upon the verbiage of the listing it would seem very reasonable for the seller to want to do this. However to call this a scam is dishonest and acting like a bully who is demanding someone accept their version of a contract or the other party is a bad person or a scammer.
