I received this PM from a member of the Lotus Forum:

XSML RKT said:

Smoky has told me about how you brought COJ's activities and Lexus and Lambo forums to light.

I've also uncovered further similar activities on other forums. In light of that evidence, I've decided that I'm not likely to get my parts or a refund. So I've decided that enough is enough.

I'm investigating my legal options against COJ, and wonder if you could be of assistance. If you are member at Lexus or other forums where COJ's operating, and you know of members who have been, shall we say, mistreated by COJ, I'd ask that you forward my contact information to such individuals. I'm trying to assemble a list of such individuals, as well as their losses.

My contact info is:

Robert R. Sachs
Fenwick & West LLP
[email protected]
415 875 2410.

I know a number of you folks took my recommendation and sent money and/or parts and ordered from him. He is still up to his old tricks and has screwed folks out of money and parts at the Lotus Forum and is also trying to ply his trade on the Lamborghini forum. IMHO, he is a blight on the automotive community and I commend Mr. Sachs for his action. If any of you were screwed please follow the instructions above.

Bt the way COJ stands for CarbonOneJohn, the forum name he is using on the Lotus Forum.

Se sent me a pm just a few days ago because I was inquiring about a part he made in his original thread. Here is the pm...

Hi there how are you? My name is John and I'm the owner of Carbon One. I read that you were interested in a rear insert? If so, I'd be happy to help. If not, then I do apologize for this PM.

I'd also like to apologize for taking so long to respond. I have not been on here in quite some time. I was told that a few members were looking for these parts. I logged in and sure enough there were a few PMs so its safe to say I'll be restarting this product.

Again, if you are interested I'd be more then happy to give you a good price and can guarantee a part ready to ship with in 4 - 7 days. However if you are not interested or I misinterpreted what you said you were interested in, I do apologize and hope I have note wasted your time with this PM.

Please feel free to email me at [email protected] or give me a ring at 708 522 3017.

Thanks! Have a great morning and rest of the day!


I sent him an email to inquire, but then saw this post

He may be going by the name "spawnaero_john" on the Lexus form. This is the email I got back from him a while ago but, it sounds like the same person:

Hey bud how are you? I saw earlier that you were interested in the CF interior and I wanted to let you know that we have a core exchange ready. In the core exchange you can get

The center console set (center, cup holder door, and ash tray lid)

As well as the 4 door / window controls.

The normal price for this is $1200 but we are offering them right now for only $750 plus your interior. We would send you an interior modified and then once you receive ours you send us yours back.

Let me know what you think bud!

WOW I am amazed at how bad this Carbon 1 company is!! These guys open these little companies only to run them into the ground. What they forget sometime is that WE are forum users. WE are usually the biggest enthusiasts and WE talk and watch each others back. Look at the VIP AutoSalons rep after all the drama. They cant get away with this......and they wont
