Anyone near Ontario, California?

Just got screwed over by some punk in Ontario Califonia.

Sent him nearly $1 for some parts and now hes not responding to phone calls or emails and sent me a bogus tracking number.

I bought, 1970 GTO endura bumper, core support, lower valance, grilles, headlight buckets, dash clock and side blinkers from him.

ebay has become very good about this scam practice- if you bought thru ebay and/or paid with paypal you should be able to recoup your money-

Well, since you sent him nearly a dollar, you didn't do too bad. I mean, the most you can be "out" is 99 cents.... Seems like a pretty cheap price for all of that stuff!!

How did you pay? hopefully with paypal - they operate heavily in the buyers favour and it shouldn't be a problem getting your money back. The only issue is they can't pull the money unless it's in his paypal account... and if he's changed that as well, it might be tough.

They won't put him in "overdraft" so to speak (as it would put paypal out money). The way I understand it though is as soon as funds are in the account they will take it. Problem is a smart scammer will just stop using the account and open another...

Contact both Paypal and Ebay right away. You won't know until you try.

Please keep us posted. I for one would like to know how effective their ability to resolve this is ---- sorry it happened to you.

ebay is pretty diligent with the whole new ID thing and will pursue the person no matter how many times he changed his name- also ebay offers buyer protection where ebay pays the dispute and then they go after them- file a claim!!!!!! ASAP
