  Information
Name:
   Nikol Okhotskiy
Email Address:
   5xb2b-3758143417@sale.craigslist.org
Telephone:
   916-340-5755
The phone number that is used on craigslist is 916-340-5755 and Nikol Okhotskiy is the name that is seen when he calls you back. He posted an ad for an HTC ONE S phone that was listed for $300. I met a Ukranian man at the Starbucks in Arden Mall. He told me everything was in perfect condition and the phone did still look brand new. He seemed to know a lot about phones but he left out the fact that the phone was defective and does not fully charge. The reason why I am posting this is because he refuses to give me back my money and he has a number of posts on here.I have listed them below. If you have had a similar experience with this man or if you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you.
