Looking for a LOSER!

Well, I’ll say it, I have my moments of stupidity…or something just gets the best of me, that I’m so exited, everything I should have done ends up by the waste side.

My attempt to save money (I mean 100’s of dollars, if all went as planned) got the best of me, this time!!!  I’d come across a dude (“Jay” he said) from online, who seemed like a cool dude.  He said his grandfather had passed about a year ago, and he’d inherited a number of properties, spanning from Bowling Green, KY, to Middle Tennessee.  I had mentioned how I was having car problems, and he said the best option would be to actually just get a whole new engine, for my head gasket problem.  He said he could get me a great deal, because he knew a buddy who owned (or managed) a parts company, on an engine for me, and that he knew another guy who just wanted to earn a little extra money, and swap them out for me for $300.  Well, that was going to equal a total of $795, in all, which was MUCH better than the minimum of $1,200 I’d been quoted.  I’d met the dude, after we’d talked, gave him $495 for the engine and fan assembly (right around Labor Day), but still haven’t seen my parts!

I did have a phone number for him, of which, apparently, is no longer his.  Story of my life! 

I’d emailed him, he says the guy who has my parts supposedly called me at least 10 times, during business hours…yet, if a local number called me that many times, I would’ve responded, ESPECIALLY, if they’d dared to leave me a message (which they never did).  He then told me to leave my car, with the keys in it, in a Walmart parking lot, and to wire the guy who was going to fix it half of the $300…I may be foolish, at times, but I am no idiot!  Obviously, I wasn’t falling for that, so he then told me the guy who has the parts will deliver them to me.  Nope, never got them.  He said he was there at a time when my roommate says she was home (I was out of town on Christmas Eve, when he said dude was going to deliver them), but no attempts were made.

Now, my emails are undeliverable!!

What I do know about him (or what he told me):

Name: Jay (Scott, possibly – he said his father is Nick Scott, Jr. from Scott Enterprises.  Looking at their website, he looks far too young to be his father.  When I asked about it, he said the web page was 10 years old.  Then, when I did further research, there was a biography about how this guy has 4 kids…”Jay” said he was an only child.  RED FLAG, I know!)

Occupation:  Has a number of properties he owns around the area, but that he was going to be working for HCA, as a Radiologist of sorts, I think.  When I did email him once, a “Sam Coles” responded back saying she/he was from Century 21, yet I can’t seem to find anything on them, either.

Origins:  “Jay” says he was born and raised in the Erie, PA area.

Health:  Did I mention he happened to say he has lung cancer?  Oh yes, he apparently had a gallbladder removal, which ended up saying he had spots on his lungs, which he said turned out to be cancerous.  He said he would be relocating back to Erie, to stay with his family, because he didn’t know anyone here, for treatments.  Honestly, his text messaging and knowledge about the rental business and things seem to corroborate his stories.  He did show me fresh scars from his procedure.

My Trip Home

Well, I made it safely to Grand Blanc, Michigan (home of the Buick Open).  After SEVERAL hours on the road, you’d think I’d made a trip around the world, however, I did pass through Miami, Lima, and Boston. 🙂 I really don’t know why I constantly complain about Ohio being the most boring state, I do more driving in Kentucky…wasn’t sure I was ever gonna get out of that state! The snow wasn’t really evident until the last quarter of Ohio, and then in MI, where there was a detour, and, for some reason, they can’t put the detour signs up properly in Detroit, so I was lost a good hour or so!   It’s been great thus far.  I got home, my mom made me some tomato soup and grilled cheese, and we just chatted.  Got to see my dogs, Champ and Casey, and man, they are getting so old!  The oldest, he’d be 12 in May, probably won’t make it until his next birthday, according to my mother, and even the youngest one, he’s 8, isn’t getting around that well either.  Casey, the youngest one, still thinks he’s a lap dog (he’s a 100 something pound dog), and came to wake me up this morning…in my bed!  Usually, I wouldn’t mind it, except, I’m on in inflatable mattress, and it apparently has a slight leak in it, and he put me closer to the ground lol.  He didn’t care though, he just wagged his tail, waiting for some attention!  Both dogs like to talk in their old age now, the oldest goes outside, and tells the world of his troubles with all his barking, the youngest one grunts and moans ALL the time, but it’s a good type my mom says.

She’s Moving South!

My best friend/suite-mate from college, Sheila, is moving to Louisville today, and I’m really excited!  She’s been living in Chicago, paying WAY too much in rent, and decided she wanted to be closer to ME! Not really, but I believe what I want anyways. 🙂  I’m just glad she’s only gonna be 3 hours away, and then maybe, JUST MAYBE, our friends from college will venture south to visit, because EVERYONE just LOVES Sheila!!!! If not, hopefully, I’ll be able to attend Dan and Brenda’s wedding in March, where the majority, if not all, will be in attendence.
