does anyone know where I can find forum member MEMMEZZ?

Heres the story. So I bought a used electronic steering wheel from member MEMMEZZ. He drives a red M3. I have my friend pick it up and once I get it I find out that he didnt include all I needed to install the steering wheel.

After a couple visits and consultations with performance technic I find out that im missing module b for the install. They tell me that I cant install the wheel without these missing parts. AND I cant buy these parts separately. Does anyone know where I can find this member? He has now stopped responding to my calls and texts.

He told me that he sent me all I needed and now im stuck with a wheel I paid for and cannot install. If anyone has the controller unit for the wheel id love to buy it. Or if anyone can tell me where I can find MEMMEZZ Id like to pay him a visit so I can return his wheel. Id hate to have to hire a lawyer oor such over something like this.

Now im wishing I just spent the extra money and bought it new. I just spent a bit on me and my gfs 2 yr anniversary and I was trying to save a little change.

Please let me know if theres anything I can do to resolve this. I just need the controller unit I believe. Or a refund. #TIA.

All I got was D and C. Performance Technic told me I need B also for the install. My mechanic said they cant get these parts separately and advised me to return the wheel or figure something out.

I called. My mechanic called. I can't get the part. I would have to buy a new kit they said.

My mechanic said "Welcome to the BMW WORLD." Ha.

I'm just used to dealing with honest forum members. So I gave this guy the B.O.D. (Benefit of the doubt).

Let's see what happens next.

He is the FBI, CIA, NSA of the m3 forum. Dude will find where he lives what he does. He hunted down a good scammer.

Awesome possum. I hope he can help find me justice. If not im not worried. Im sure something bad will happen to him or his car or home. God works in mysterious ways. Thats why im always a good person. Especially when no ones looking.

Even if he wouldve just picked up responded and tried to make me feel like hes not scamming me or being a terrible and dishonest seller maybe I wouldnt have to do all this extra posting. But hey! On a brighter note im omw to 7k posts like you know who! Lol

That's make that twice for the record. I'm waiting for the third time that he pops up to play whack a mole.

I just got a V1 version of this myself where the deal went sideways but the original owner of it was a stand up guy.

I'm reading this. Hold on.

Edit: Processing.....

Not to add fuel to the fire but don't you also need A - the retrofit harness? Send me the information I requested when you get a chance.

I sent the diagram to performance technic and they said I needed the controller unit but maybe they were busy and didn't notice that I only got C and D from seller.

I'm trying to resolve this on my own by searching for the other modules. It's not looking good. My mechanic wasn't joking around. Darnnit.

All he has to do is give me a refund and some sob story about how his dog ate his phone or etc. I could care less what the story is I just want my refund or the parts needed for install. My beautiful M3 is getting new shoes and new PSS michelin tires put on this week. new grills side grills (gloss black) (THANKS IND!)
And now I need to complete my mod session with the elect steering wheel. My gf found out I bought a used wheel so I could get her a nicer bag as an anniversary present and now she feels terrible... But this isn't her fault. but now Im really wishing I just kicked out the extra dough. It shouldve been installed already. Someone needs to give this guy a
