simtec ecu messed up big time

I recently sold a Mines ecu for a v1 wrx, but my wife wrongly posted a simtec ecu i was waiting to get fitted by Mr Forrest, (Andy will have all our corespondance from the last few weeks), i contacted the buyer, he said he bought it to sell on & his buyer had been & collected it, he gave me a contact number which i phoned, the guy didn't want to return the ecu & wanted to speak to the guy i sold it to. I later got a text saying he refused to return it & got told to Fu*k off. The ecu was shipped to Ireland.
Could i ask if anyone sees this ecu for sale or is asked to map it please get in touch. Its a 4 plug simtec with serial number E1S96.0405
I have contacted as many suppliers & mappers of Simtec as i could find to keep an eye out for this ecu,(thanks for the replies chaps) is there a way of getting it blocked by Simtec.
Any chance i could ask the admin could sticky this post for a while.
Cheers
Mark

Re: simtec ecu messed up big time

need to get in touch with steve simpson asap, if the person doesn;t have the code to access it they have to go back to him to get a full reset code.

Re: simtec ecu messed up big time

As far as the guy using the ecu or getting it mapped, think that all sewn up now thanks to some very helpful people. I have tried the lads number all day but there is no answer, i have left several messages, basically letting him know the unit in its current state of map will not be suitable for his car & it has been flagged by all mappers suppliers & Simtec, so has gained nothing, & that i;m still willing to give him what he wanted in the first place. TBH i think he'll try to sell it on to some poor sod.
