about a month ago i was looking for a motor for my Honda scooter. I was having trouble finding one, but then someone contacted me on a message board named sandiegoscooters and said he had the motor, plus all the other parts i needed. He said he owned a shop called "Point Loma Scooters" We were emailing each other back and forth and everything was good, but then i googled him and i found 4 or 5 bad reviews on him, and it swayed me and i told him i was going to find a different motor. Then the next day, i found one on e-bay from twowheelhelp. I emailed him and asked him if he had all the other parts i needed. I got a response from Mike Lala and he said he had everything i needed. So Then i called him to ask a few questions and he answered the phone "Point Loma Scooters" So this threw me off a little bit, because Eric (sandiegoscooters on the message board) had said he owned point loma scooters. So i asked the man on the phone if he knew Eric Dutra. He said he had never heard of him, So i told him the story, and he still said he had ever heard of him. So then the deal went through on ebay and i got my invoice and it said send payment to Eric Dutra. So it appeared to me he had lied saying he had never heard of him. I told him i would be 5 dollars extra for a tracking number and insurance. He said that was fine. So i paypalled him the money on a Saturday. So on the following tuesday (The day his shop opens after the weekend) He called me to make sure he included everything i needed. Then he sent me a usps tracking number. Everything looked good. But after a couple days i started getting worried because the tracking number never changed. A week went by and i was starting to get really worried, but then i talked to some people and they said that usps uses confirmation numbers and it wouldn't change until my package had already showed up. Well yesterday my motor showed up (mailed from Eric Dutra), everything looked good, i checked the usps number and sure enough it changed to saying it had been delivered. Today i worked with the motor, cleaned it up and got it started. It ran good, and i have no complaints with the motor. Only complaints i really have are that i asked for a tracking number and instead got a confirmation number. (Which i think is pretty minor) and that he lied about not knowing Eric Dutra. I don't know if Eric and Mike are two different people but i know at the very least they work together. But I really don't care because the motor showed up and was perfectly as described. So all in all i was paranoid for nothing and i had a good experience with him.
