    >Warning< Scam artists abound!

    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Rob, and i am the proprietor of Dinosaur Four Motorcycle Services. I am posting to let fellow cycle enthusiasts know of a scam artist named Peter Muller, associated with FederalMoto US. He contacted me last year, to build a custom cycle for him / teach him how to build. He brought his cycle over and I instructed him over the course of 14 months (based on his time available) and completed his cycle. A week before pickup, still waiting for payment, i had an acute arthritis attack in my spine, and was hobbled, i called and asked for payment, and he said he was coming over to pay, and showed up with no money, begged me to let him put it in a show, and he would bring it right back, promising on our friendship, blah blah blah, manipulating and finally strong armed me. He took it and never paid, he owes me $11,650.

    He is a greedy scam artist, manipulative and dishonorable and not to be trusted.

    Here is a picture of his bike in my shop, a showroom quality build i am very proud of. (dude in pic is scumbag Peter Muller)

    Thank for listening!
    Cheers!

    Personal vendetta stories as a first post are usually NOT my cup of tea, but...

    I googled your shop and it looks like you're nearby in Lombard, IL. Maybe I can use your services someday.
    And I know how getting ripped off feels like.

    I googled your alleged perpetrator on linkedin. This sounds like him...

    You should IMMEDIATELY file a police report and a lien on the bike.

    Far more important than a scam advisory.

    Why you let him take the bike is ABSOLUTELY beyond me. No pay, no bike. PERIOD.

    I think he implied he forcibly took it...

    Excellent advice that I'm sure he's started on already.

    Yep, thats his pic.

    JCW, I supposed i could of physically stopped him (altercation) but, i could just barely walk, and yes, i thought he was my friend, and should not of trusted him....... a big mistake on my part, i know, i'm the dummy. His friends and associates said i should go to the forums to tell the truth, i am not expecting any recompense from him, but, i just didn't want anyone to have to go through / feel this from him again, if i can save one person from this idiot, then my post was worth it.

    Thanks!
    Cheers!
    Rob

    A classic hipster pic of his latest build/monstrosity on instagram with the bike builder glancing elsewhere too cool to look at the camera.

    God I vomited in my mouth a little...

    Leave that to us. That bike is CRAP.

    I like your workshop and YOUR bike, what I can see of it...

    That's all. I'm done. Best of luck to you.
