winks online is SHADY!!!!
Saturday, March 12, 2005 12:34 PM
i relize all of u have seen this before and ur probly gonna see it again , cause i know chris isnt gonna send me my wide body , or my money , seeing how he doesnt like to respond to emails , [as some of u know ] and now he wont respond to ims...i relize this is going to be blocked or deleted or some other way the moderaters have to save chris's reputation , but chris is a liar he always says itll be in the mail the next day and guess whut , it never is, he admits its done and that its ready to be shipped but he is to damn lazy to hope in his lil car and drive to the post office put a stamp on it and send it out . its been 7 months since ive order this damn thing , there is no reason this would take 7 months , it shouldnt have took 7 weeks , and ill probly be waiting like 7 years for him to send it so im telling everyone on here that winks online is just about the shadiest company ive ever done bussiness with and DO NOT BUY FROM HIM !!!!

Of course he will be nice, till you buy something from him. Then once he gets annoyed of you asking when your product will get there, he ignores you. I have some nice IMs saved between him and I, where I caught him in a lie and him treating me like @!#$ b/c I wanted my money back. I was promised a product in 2 weeks, and after waiting 2 months for I was the ass for wanting my money back.

I ended up having to go through my credit card to get my money back, it was a huge headache. IMO he has poor customer service, and does not respect the money other people give him; honestly I almost can compare him to Exploited, just not as bad.

hey zeke sorry your still having that problem. Its a shame that someone can't do what there suppose to do. And as with the converstaion above ^^^^ it justs shows how much of an ass and a bullsh"t company he runs. I'm sorry its not a company its a joke. He probably runs it out of his parents house and only keeps a few products in a garage. There are alot of options out there that you can do to resolve this matter. You have my email address so send me a message of the latest and i'll see what can be done. As everyone on here who will read this why can't he reply to peoples emails and calls. Why can't he ship out products when supposed to, why does he take peoples money. But he has time to come on here and post replys on others topics but he can't reply to emails from customers.

That leaves a bad taste in my mouth, who would openly try and get business like that?

Theres no excuse for 7 months but...

I wouldnt read too much into an AIM conversation. It kind of sounds like he was just being/honest jacking around. it doesnt sound like he was trying to forceanything onto him.

Yea i've never ordered from Winks because all I ever hear is bad things coming from him. Theres so many things i've ordered in the past and i've never gone through him and never had a problem. Try: Aplusperformance, GravanaTuning, Highrevmotorsports, or CarCustoms.....I've never heard anything bad from any of them and Ive recieved all my orders on time and had great customer service. Jason, Jim, Karo...all good guys my hat goes off to you!

wink is just like all the other teeny businesses on this site. ben, jason, etc. he falls behind like everyone else does. think about how busy you are, then add trying to run an online business on top of that. thats how these guys are. its been a long time no ones arguing that, but i have confidence he'll come through

if he's that busy of a person then he shouldn't be running a business also if thats what you call it. Come on chris 7 months plus i have some friends that haven't gotten there products either. Why does people still take up for this guy. 7 months is way to long the confidence of him coming through went out the building at the beginning of 2 months.

As of late, I just think that he got himself tied up with his lambo door GP that went sour. The only personal complaint I have with him is when we were looking at body kits, he was more than willing to take my money for a preorder on the urethane drift kit that was being made, that now is no longer in production.

Please.. I am very flattered but only the man himself, Marshal Mathers, is really worthy of the name SHADY..

ohh yes, I also remember it not being a 7 month wait, first off.. then i also remember telling you i had (HAD) absolutly HAD to get this dash done before i started any more fiberglass pieces.. (full custom dash been in the works for a year and a half as a side project) and you agreed to go on and pay and get it when it came.. said you were in no rush, etc. I am not here to prove anything... You guys just freak out over the @!#$ that I TELL YOU WILL TAKE A WHILE TO MAKE.. I dont just pick up the phone and order the stuff i make myself. I pretty much warn everyone if something is out of stock such as shaved fillers, and i make sure EVERYONE is WELL aware that there is a big wait before ordering widebody panels.. I WILL have your panels out before 5pm tomorow with a tracking number on this thread. Half the guys talking trash on this thread have never done business with me, the other half have done business with me and they have no reason at all to say anything bad about winks or me or whatever b/c I have always taken care of them. Seems like trying to offer some unique parts, going out of my way and all this for the jbody comunity has just done more bad than good so I wouldnt expect many more custom parts in the near future..

the way i see it.. me break my back and my wallet just for you guys to get upset isnt right. I warn everyone about the widebody panels and if someone backs out after so long before they get theirs i refund their money right there on the spot of them notifying me. I wish for once someone would back me up here.. no one reading this wants to admit to a good experience?

this sort of topic was beaten to death with the last thread... if you want to resolve something, get ahold of Chris and work something out. end of discussion.
