    Be careful - xtremescubastore

    Hi all,
    in the previous days i have been scammed by xtremescubastore (Xtreme Scuba Dive Store | Advanced Technical Diving Center in Ventura CA). I have exchanged many emails with richard (email address: Richard ) for the purchasing of a MEG rebreather. After having received pictures and advices on the configuration from richard i decided to proceed with the payment of 8554.75$.
    Payment has been done via bank wire transfer. Details are:
    BANK NAME:
    PACIFIC CAPITAL BANK CORP.
    250 SOUTH MILLS ROAD VENTURA, CA 93003
    ROUTING#: 122220593
    BANK ACCOUNT#: 0100217496
    BANK ACCOUNT NAME: XS ENTERPRISES SWIFT CODE: SBBTUS66

    I have called the number (805)6442563 and there is an automatic responder, and after saying richard, you can leave voice message in the inbox.

    Of course after the payment the person stopped to reply to my emails.

    Please be careful in doing business with xtremescubastore.

    Now, i would like to have suggestion from you on how to proceed to try to get back my money. I'am from Italy so i do not know the way forward in US.
    Is there something i can do (e.g. write to the police or to the bank to block the bank account, identify the owner, remove or ask to close the store on the web to avoid other people buying online)...

    Please any suggestions are more than welcome also via PM.

    I kindly ask to the moderator to highlight this thread.

    Thanks!

    @chevie: thanks for the suggestion but unfortunately xtremescuba is not included in the dealers of ISC...at least not anymore.

    Any suggestion on how to get in contact with the police or the bank?

    Thanks Scott.

    I already sent an email for opening a report to ventura CA police and IC3.

    I just got confirmation from the police that a case has been opened. Hope to find a solution.

    If that is the case, Richard X needs to be blacklisted!!! What is his last name??

    I hate sh.t like that. We are a small community! Granted you can only hope that everybody is honest and helpful but it is sad when stuff like this happens.

    Hope it will turn out OK for you in the end!

    Richard Graff.

    Really bad news, for quite a while now.

    Chain & pad locks on the store front.

    Shop closed, unpaid employees, unpaid payroll taxes, customer tanks and other gear missing, etc. etc. etc.
