  • Ebay Casualty

    I have been buying and selling on Ebay for many years now. Have seen my share of people get ripped off. Well, it became my turn.
    I tried to buy a set of Chevy heads for my new car for Fathers Day. They never came. I am out $616.15
    Ebay covers only $200 and of that they take a $25 fee.
    Makes me sick.
    Never send payment other then Paypal. I do prefer Paypal , but the guy I was getting robbed from prefered a nice easy money order.
    Many alarm bells were ringing in my head when I did this deal, but I had too many other things on my mind and had grown complacent over the years of many easy Ebay transactions.
    I pefer not to answer questions concerning my bad deal other then offer advice for those that have little experience. I am angry at myself for bidding with 'blinders' on. I am angry that I am the victim. I am angry that my money was wasted.
    I am one PISSED OFF MARINE. I wish I could find my robber.

            PM sent Dave. God forbid I locate. Being in the same state, I will make a roadtrip.

                He could resolve them personally....by going to the guy and having a civilised chat over tea and scones ;)

                  I cannot self incriminate. I am not above the law but would like to think my tenure will afford me a little asswhooping. 18 years as a US Marine, heads will look the other way for me if I need it.
                  The reality of it is I will never have the time or he will never be found. But thanks for letting me vent here a little in the forums and all of the support.
                  Perhaps he will be brought to justice. I am going to persue this as far as I can within reason.

                    Actually, this can work out. I had a guy pull something similar on me, but mine was only $300 for a Clarion Pro Audio head unit. I was able to locate the guy since he lived in a small town and the 3rd number I called was a cousin of his. I pretended to be someone I'm not(But not a cop, I would never impersonate an officer.) and told the guy his cousin was using his name to fraud people. He really wasn't but that was enough to piss the guy off and he told me how to find him. Amazingly enough, all it took was 1 phone call out of the blue (I didn't even threaten him with physical violence) and I had my deck within a week.

                        Hey now, think of it this way...

                        at least your not being pissed on. :/
                        Also, at least you are getting SOMETHING back from ebay.

                          I called 411 and asked for his number. The reply I get: " At the customers request, this number is private and therefor nonpublished".
                          One step closer.... the possible confirmation that he does in fact live were he said he did.
                          Now then, I am going to add to my story. The same day I published my NEGATIVE FEEDBACK on ebay so did another guy. He was buying nearly the same thing. This poor guy paid $1100... and then another NEGATIVE FEEDBACK pops up from 3 days ago for another car part. Now prior to all this he was a normal Ebayer, then suddenly 3 bad feedbacks in 3 days. For me , he is guilty as charged regardless of whether or not he is incapacitated and unable to reply.

                              Can you not simply contact your local constabulary and press fraud charges?
