BEWARE efj44astro Deal going bad..

Post by MSS-Dave » Sat Sep 03, 2011 1:39 pm

Hi All....

Had to post this due to a unfortunate situation. I sent a EFJ5100ES P25 radio that needed a firmware reflash to Steve, efj44astro with him receiving it on July 9th. He told me he was waiting on some files from EFJ and then he would ship back. Since then, spotty responses to e-mail the last being on Aug. 23rd stating it was done, packed up and ready to ship. I sent the radio, prepaid the programming and included Priority Mail shipping label for return. Told him 2 weeks ago if it wasn't or couldn't be done, just send the radio and the $$ back to me and I woould move on. Today is Sept. 3 and nothing. Steve advertises on this board as Viking Two Way LLC and solicits business to program and repair radios and scanners.

I've been more than patient in not blowing up his phone and e-mail because I'm a tech too and crap happens. He seems to be doing this as a business so I am going to start treating it as a business deal gone bad. He has my P25 radio, cash and a shipping label.

I recommend using caution if you are thinking of using the services he advertises in his posts here on this board.

I'll revise the post if you will take the time to make this right Steve.....

At least I got a "reply" from spam. Still nothing at all from the scammer.....

I have been trying to get him to return two EFJ5100 radios for over a year now. I have sent him several certified letters, which he did indeed receive, but no response. I have considered filing a mail fraud complaint, but I am not sure if USPS will listen after a year. Worth a shot in your case.
