Here's what has happened to me.

Jan 11 2010 my wife mailed a USPS money order to Ray from some cub cult shields and shanks. Ray was one of the few that replied to me on a WTB ad that I put on the Classified Ads here at Yesterdays Tractors. I had to email him on Jan 20 2010 asking him if he recieved payement. He returned my email the same day stating they had some bad weather and that he found some clamp ext bars that he'll throw in the same box. I returned the email say yeah throw them in there. That was on Jan 20.

Feb 4 I emailed him asking for a day when he plans on shipping my items. This is a copy/paste from his response

hello i emailed you a week ago or so and asked whens a good time to call and

need your phone # plz email back



I never NEVER NEVER recieved an email from him a week ago from that email. I emailed him right back stating I never recieved email from him and gave him my phone number. This might sound odd, I never NEVER recieved a phone call from him.
Feb 6 I sent him another email asking for a shipping day. No return email from him.

Feb 7 I sent him another email asking for shipping day. No return email from him

Feb 7 I sent him another email stating he has a few days to get back to me until I seek legal help.

Then I did a search on Koroleski on these forums. UH OH I should've done my homework. I think I can kiss that cash bye bye.

Feb 7 I sent my story to the ARENAC COUNTY INDEPENDENT. Which is a newspaper in Standish MI. I asked them for an email to the Standish Police Dept and to who there would deal with internet fraud. I will aslo be seeking legal advice from my laywer as well this week. I will keep all posted about what comes out of this.
What a sad sad day

That's the best thing anybody could do. Call Ray's local Police Dept and report him. If you don't hear anything back from them, I have MI State Police number for his area as well. Let me know if you need it. They will have more resources in the digital field. When I contacted Ray's ISP, they never had a report of him neither. But they are willing to work with local agencies.

anybody wanting to talk to Ray should call his number- 1-989-313-1841. He just posted some ads on craigslist-michigan-central michigan-Farm &Garden. Once you get there search for Standish and you'll find all the cub and JD H parts that you've probably already paid for still for sale! Oddly, he's not posting his name in his ads anymore....

I ordered and got what I wanted. However he spray painted the mud gaurd without cleaning it up. Painted right over the mud, grease, pits,holes, and dirt. Looked good in the pictures which is what I based my decision to purchase on. This guy needs to be banned from these classified adds. Does YTM have a mechanism for that?

Just an update.............

I recieved my items from Ray Koroleski today. All items were there and they were as he described to me.

Here is my take on all this. If you are wanting to buy something from Ray Koroleski and email him, he will communicate with you before you send payment. Once he recieves payment, all communication will cease no matter how many times you email, phone call, etc him. Takes him a little time to send items as well. Again I ask myself "would I do business with him again" and the answer to that is NO. This is my opinion about him and no one else's. There is way to much negative here on ytmag about him. I guess I have myself to blame a little for this as well. Do your research on people before sending payment.

Wow, I was getting ready to order a radiator and some seat parts from this guy when I saw this feedback. On January 4th He cashed my $150.00 check for some other parts I had ordered. Ten days later on Thursday January 14th I called to see what the status was on the shipment. He said the parts had gone out UPS on that Monday and I should be getting them that day. He said he was “out of town” but he would check later in the day and get back to me. About two hours later he called and said the package was sent back to his house because it smelled like gasoline. There was a carburetor in the shipment and thought that caused the problem.

He said he would re-ship it when he got home on Friday. He called that Friday and said he was going to let it air out and send it on the following Monday or Tuesday. He asked if I needed any bolts for rims since he had some and I said I was going to buy some. He said he would “throw them in the box free” to make up for my trouble. I received the shipment on the following Thursday and there was no smell from the carb.

The carb was pictured on the internet for several days not attached to a tractor. I have dealt with plenty of carbs and I really doubt a few extra days were going to get rid of a heavy gas smell. I felt all along that there was no problem with the shipment and that he wasn’t going to send it out until he was good and ready, but I wanted to not believe that. After seeing all the comments, I now have to think that really was the case.

I was lucky, I got my stuff but I had to get after him to get it. I’m going to pass on ordering the seat parts and rad. No sense taking a chance he will keep my money next time. Thanks for the alert.

Feb 9 I filed a complaint against Ray Koroleski at the Federal Bureau of Investigation's website (IC3 which stands for Internet Crime Complaint Center). Sent an email to Ray Koroleski stating what I did. No response from Ray. Imagine that.

I emailed Ray Koroleski's internet service provider (ISP). I stated to them that a customer of theirs was using their service to comit an internet crime. That same night I emailed Ray Koroleski and told him about the above. No reply from Ray. Imagine that.
Feb 10 I recieved an email from Rays ISP. The person sending the email was the owner of the ISP. He stated they take internet fraud very serious and was willing to help me in any way. Later on that day I called the owner of Rays ISP. We discussed this whole situation. I told him I was not the only one that is having serious problems with Ray Koroleski once payment was sent and in Rays pockets. He then gave me two local agencies to contact in Michigan.
Still on the same day as above, I recieved an email from Ray Koroleski at 2:26 pm CST. He told me items were shipped and gave me two UPS tracking numbers. So I get home from work and boogie over to UPS's website to check these tracking numbers out. Well, looks good, but UPS does not have possession of those packages yet. I will give it a few days, if nothing has changed, I will have to pickup where I left off.

I'll keep you all posted on this. Would I do business with Ray Koroleski again? The answer to that is NO. I just hope nobody else has issues with Ray like I have, but it's proably to late.

The last email I recieved was yesterday(2/8). I had asked if my front rims had been shipped yet and he stated he was sick. OK that is reasonable. I do have all emails, reciepts readily available. I did however talk to the attorney general about what steps to take if I felt I was a victim of mail fraud, and have a website to start with. The more people that have had this problem and step up towards this kind of behavior, the more likely it will end up being taken care of. I havent given up hope yet, at least get what I paid for. He did however say he "blew" one tire on the set of rims I bought and would refund SOME of my shipping cost. I told him that its ok and to just send the rims and tires as is. Hopefully it will help him in the long run because he obviously needs the money, but I just want to see something. If you guys need any more info or just wanna chat drop me an email and I can send my phone # or whatever. Take it easy and lets hope for good luck.

R.Mc when was the last time you talked with Ray Koroleski?

I would like to ask a favor of you as well. Please keep all documentation about your purchase from Ray Koroleski. That would include all emails, money order receipts, etc. It will help you in the long run. I plan on seeking a criminal suit against Ray Koroleski in the near future if he does not fulfill his end of this transaction. This is fraud, internet fraud and is a criminal action. I have every intention of following this till the end. Fraud is a serious criminal act and I will not tolerate it.
Monday Feb 8
I have contacted the USPS in St Louis MO about the USPS money order I sent Ray Koroleski. If I remember correctly, I am problably going to visit the Post Office that I purchased the money order from to find out if it was cashed. They charge a small fee for this. I will tack that onto the bill for Ray Koroleski. Also the mileage to the post office, the time I take off of work.
I have to take small steps at first, but I will prevail.

Well, youre not the only one. I had bought a set of front rims and tires for my JD H. He let me know he recieved money and would ship them this past weekend. Well I had emailed him back asking if they had been shipped but he was "sick". Im goona give him a few more days and see what happens, but this s*** is ridiculous.

I feel fortunate that I got something at least but what I got was a complete misrepresenation of the actual product. Can't the site somehow ban an individual with such a crappy track record as he? He's only going to continue preying on more honest souls such as ourselves. I noticed in the non-picture and picture classifieds that others are as peed as we are! Please stop this crooked man. He's giving this great and well respected classified site a bitter taste. Marc
