Mindblower Performance Chip SCAM FRAUD

I saw another member asking about it.

so i decided to do this post.



eBay's mindblower_performance is a TOTAL SCAM!

Ebay should be banning this guy.

I bought it and after I found out it would leave to engine damage, void my factory warrantee from my mechanic, I tired to get a refund.

this piece of work told me to f off unless I leave him + feedback first.


I FILE FOR a dispute through PayPal and with in a week I got my money back. I also filed for a item NOT as described through eBay, negative feedback and put 1 star on all his DSR!

this guy was so rude when I asked for my refund, cussed me out over email. I still have ugly emails me sent me.

He has a 100% money back guaranteed. You can help remove this guy from eBay.

Buy his product for 25$. When you get it in the mail, you can crack it open, see for yourself that its total garbage, post your own pictures, and return it to him.

I returned it first class with TRACKING for about 1.50$

I then contacted eBay and opened up an item not as described and with in a week and got my money back from PayPal when i gave paypal the tracking information.

Since sellers can not leave you negative feedback, he cant do anything.

after he told me to F off, I left him a negative feedback with all 1 dsr .

Right now eBay is ultra aggressive with feedbacks. Once he gets a couple more, he will be banned.

the key is

100% guaranteed refund through PayPal, just make sure you have a tracking number back to this guy.

-ship it back with tracking number from usps.
-leave negative feedback telling people to SEARCH online about this product. Don't leave a website or it will get removed by eBay since you cant have URL in the feedback
-leave all 1 DSR for his feedback.
-open an item not as described dispute through eBay. <---------- this step is the most important. Also make sure to close this dispute telling ebay that he did NOT resolve the issue.

he can only have 5-6 item not as described disputes through eBay and all his items will get lowered search status on eBay. he wont make any sales, and paying tons of fees. soon he will be gone.

also if he gets too many item not as described, he gets banned.

do your part. get this joker off the internet.

i am sorry but anyone believing that a little box with 2 wires can actually help your truck for 25 bucks when every other programmer or chip out there is 6 times that amount at least than you kinda get what you deserve. I am sorry this happened and the guy should be gone but he makes his money relying on not so smart people that don't realize you get what you pay for.

there are actually alot of these that DO work on gasser, they dont gain a lot of power but it helps out a little know for a diesel dont know if they would work, but that is the looks of a fooler box for dpf deletes, resistors have been used for years to fool electronics, i really dont think you got scammed at all you got what you paid for, if you wanted 50hp you should have bought a $300-$400 programmer,

Easy there, this guy got ripped off, kinda throwing salt in a wound.

And I HAVE bought things off eBay for way less than what they normally cost and even for $25 dollars that gave me about 30 horsepower. Mine was brand new and just as described. You can get better than thought of deals on there and if you've not done any research on diesel things then you don't always know.

Diesel-less at the moment

If that is Stage 6 I wonder what the next stage is. Seriously where is that supposed to be hooked up, at the MAP?

i said i was sorry he got ripped off, but we are all men here i think. We shouldn't get our feeling hurt that bad. Now if someone was selling a smarty or something for 500 bucks and ran away with his money then i would be all over doing what i can to help the guy out, but believing that this little box would do anything but maybe blow up the truck is just not smart. This is along the line of a electric supercharger, all these people hope for people that don't know much about vehicles to prey on and they get away with it. I have only been on this earth for 27 years but i do know that you do get what you pay for in auto parts 99.9% of the time

what i do think is wrong about the whole situation is i think it says 100% satisfaction guaranteed, and if you are not satisfied you should get your money back, plus the whole feedback situation. Now that issue is wrong, but him getting away with selling that plastic resistor box is just as bad as all the sham wow, and other crazy infomercials, or hell even penis enlargement pills. If they can put that on tv doubt they will stop this guy from selling the resistor box.
