    John,
    I stayed at a Holiday Inn a few weeks ago.

    The photos of 301100 show a 1/6 scale SUV inside of a red 911.
    I would like to purchase this. Geoff, is that yours?

    Definitely a scam. You don't want to buy a car on Rhode Island Ave in DC :-).

    FYI, this is a scam. VIN (and pictures) matches with a car which was for sale at a different place...

    1969 911T scam?

    Hey guys,

    Appreciate any info on the following:

    Does anybody know about this unrestored 1969 911T, ViN 119121225, light ivory, original engine nr 6195728? The car was on auction on ebay until today with no reserve. Im the lucky winner.

    Sold by Brad Revelli in walnut creek CA.

    I m a bit worried after a quick google search of his name. It comes up with only scam reports.

    Very much appreciate any info you might have on car and seller!

    Thanks for the help

    Brad Revelli Auto Sales

    United States
    Brad Revelli sold me a Corvette on E-Bay. He said that it was a sale with Papers from a Lien Sale.
    He forgot to say that it was a sale to someone else, and that he did not even own the Automobile, or could not come up with paperwork that would allow a Transfer of Ownership.
    He Stole $4, 100.00 from me.
    I have been informed by the California DMV that the Automobile has been sold to someone other than whose Information was on the Lien Sale Papers. That Person was a Daniel Burgess, whom I later found out was Brad Revelli's Partner in his Apartment.
    A complete Scam- He knows the rules in E-Bays Protection Policy, so he Communicates well for over thirty days, saying that he can take care of this, and take CARE OF THAT. After the thirty days tht E-Bay and Pay-Pal are supposed to Protect the Buyer, You cannot make a claim. Even the $500.00 Paid through Pay-Pal would not be Refunded because Pay-Pal contended that it was a "VIRTUAL TRANSFER". Please explain this to me.
    I am Seventy Years old, and on Social Security. Had to borrow the money to pay this. Now am really struggling to Pay back the person who Borrowed me the Money.
    Brad Revelli and Daniel Burgess in Walnut Creek, CA., are both FRAUD ARTISTS in my BOOK.
    I have not received a Penny Back, and I cannot afford to go from Minnesota to California to SUE.

    Brad Revelli Auto Sales Complaints - Fraud
    Brad Revelli Auto Sales

    Fraud

    Company information:
    Walnut Creek, California
    United States

    Brad Revelli did the exact same thing to me on a 1979 VW SuperBeetle I bought from him on e-bay. Only I actually received a title from him. He told me it was never put in his name. The title was from NY & listed to the original owner. I found a California license plate in the trunk when we were restoring it. California DMV verified that the vehicle had been registered in California in 2000 but hasnt been registered since 2002. But said that Brad Revelli was not the registered owner on title. It too was Daniel Burgess.
    He refused to answer us about the California title & where it was, or that he did not even own the Automobile, or could not come up with paperwork that would allow a Transfer of Ownership.
    He has stolen $5, 500.00 from me which is what I now have into the cars prior to learning this.
    So the NY title of the original owner is absolutely no good & not relevant at all. It had since been titled to this same Daniel Burgess, Brad Revelli's Partner in his Apartment.
    A complete Scam- You are right...He does know how to manipulate E-Bays rules to get around the Protection Policy. He promises makes alot of promises to stall the thirty days. After the thirty days that E-Bay and Pay-Pal are supposed to Protect the Buyer, You cannot make a claim. Pay-Pal gave me the same answer for my deposit. I do not know what "Virtual Transfer is either. I am on disability & that is why we got a car on ebay to fix up ourselves. Now I still have no car. I too borrowed the money & it has been over a year.
    Brad Revelli and Daniel Burgess in Walnut Creek, CA., have done this to many. All you have to do is pull up Brads name. Sue him in your state or see if we can file a class action suit nationwide. I plan on trying for criminal charges as well. I am in Arizona, so I am a little bit closer.
    I have not received a Penny Back, and I cannot afford to go from Minnesota to California to SUE.

    I have worked with Brad for years. He is honest and reliable. I google searched him to find his most recent contact information and was sad to see this spam thread is still the first hit. Note that this is just a personal campaign by one person to smear Brad. The second comment above simply copies and pastes the first complaint, changing some facts to make it look different - but note that the person forgot to change certain facts - claiming that he lives in Arizona, yet has no money to go from MN to CA to sue. I've received better written responses in my spam e-mail folder

    Does it really matter that I cut & paste similar topics rather than completely rewrite them? Come on, semantics. I assure you, this is not
    one person trying to smear Brads name. This is yet another person that got screwed over by this eBay car scam he has going on. And if he is such a great honest guy, why don't you ask him what the hell he stuck us all with. I'm sure if he is the guy you think he is, he'll be totally upfront, and I'm sure he'll be able to quickly give you a reasonable explanation for it as well as a simple resolution on how all of us can title our vehicles. I only pray you prove us all a bunch of brad hating assholes by posting back with the fix. I will not only thank u, but I would make a public apology to brad and spend the next year advocating his name. Deal?
