just a heads up to all.

Thank God I don't think he lurks here but maybe the Mods may want to check.

There is a guy from Quincy Michigan that is taking people to the cleaners. His name is Mike Flinchum. He got me on HCS for 600 bucks and many others on Totally Yamaha. His handle on HCS is General-lee and black on blue on totally Yamaha. You can check my post in the HCS feedback section for more info....

The police are looking for him as we speak.When they get done the Feds will be getting him for mail fraud...He mandated postal money orders only.Refused Paypal and had many excuses why....Should have been my 1st clue.

Please be careful people and lets catch this TOOL

Yeah, I know of a guy like that from my area. He's 19 now and he recently bought a $8500 truck with a check that bounced, with some one elses checkbook... among other things. He bought an 06 rev 440 same way. He is in jail now.

I have had information saying that his wife is paying everyone back. ....I will believe it when I see it and I will post here if it happens. He is said to have mental issues, excuse or not I'm glad I didn't run into him and kick the crap out of him.

I went to this ad and posted my own. I explained what happened and that I would think twice about doing anything with him. My post was flagged and it was gone by the end of the day.

Now I see he has been flagged and removed

I have bought and sold hundreds of items online. I have had some issues but nothing like this.....I personally talked with this guy and he seemed like a heck of a guy...He walked the walk and talked the talk. He had all kinds of reasons why not taking Paypal and they seemed legit.

The moral is even us schooled at the scams can be had by someone with something new. I still don't take paypal personally but I have feedback to back up my reputation.

Too often, we lose sight of life's simple pleasures. Remember, when someone annoys you it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown BUT, it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and bitch-slap the mothereffer upside the head...

***UPDATE***I GOT PAID

The Police contacted his wife. She must be in charge of babysetting this a-hole. The police gave her until the 28th to pay everyone that got screwed.





I called Tuesday and talked with his wife. I will say in the 2 conversations I had with her there was no sense of remorse. No, I'm sorry whatsoever. The very brief letter I received today with my payment had a apology.
I am square with them except for warning the world every chance I get to not deal with this crook. He has ads on Craigslist (Grand Rapids)at this very time for snowmobile repair. As far as I'm concerned it should be constantly flagged. Or he should be banned. I doubt very much any lesson has been learned.
I do not know her plan for paying back people but it appears to be as people call. So if you have not been paid I would call. I will say that I had a local Colbwater Michigan resident email me that knows the family. He said that he has seen Mike and he did not get hurt on his dirt bike as we were told. He had nothing good to say about Sarah as well and said Mike suffers from being Bi-Polar.
Again I would like to thank MrSled, tyler440, and all that have helped on Totallyamana. I will not forget this and have learned a valuable lesson. I should have did Paypal or picked up myself.

Please Help me guys! Mike sold me a set of pipes, head, clutches, and an airbox for 590.00. I had bought a set of pipes from him last year and even though it took a while to get them, I did get them. Like you said I had a lengthy conversation with him and he seemed like a good guy. He asked for postal money order but I sent him a cashiers check from my bank, which I have a recipt for! I have left Voicemails, texts, sent his wife a message on Facebook, and no response! I need Somebody to call me ASAP with some Numbers to get what I paid for or my money back!!! Please help me!! 1-701-305-0561
