    I paid for an audi engine on Friday 10 January 2014, to Darren Peters exactly the same details as given by Paul above. No delivery, no nothing. How is it possible for this guy to continuous scamming people and get away with this? I am a single parent with a disabled child and now without my money and still no engine.
