Buyer beware!!!!

The guy that ripped me off recently is at it again. Apparently this guy has multiple accounts. He has everything that he ripped me off for relisted on ebay under another account. And also prefers not to use paypal now! Go figure since paypal got me my money back from him.

Please sticky this for a while so that it doesnt get lost in the threads and someone else gets ripped off.

? Why does he still have a 100% feedback rating ?

If he tried to rip you off can't you leave some bad feedback to warn others?

I guess that's why he has the multiple accounts. I'm glad you got your $$$ back Orbit Orange, same thing happened to me on another forum from a member/vendor and I was lucky enough to get my $$ back, others were not as fortunate.

Yep he uses multiple accounts and changes user id's. I reported his items and called eBay.

Write a question on the auction site stating he ripped you off and never shipped, it'll show up for everyone to read. Won't it?

I am pretty sure you have to voluntarily post questions as the seller.

That's true. It is up to the seller. When I sell an item I normally post every question asked about it for all other potential buyers to see.

I called ebay and let them know whats going on and that he uses differant account names. When I asked if they wanted to know all of them that I have found they said they didnt need them. Said they would probably start checking his IP address and any accounts related to it. That way even if he is using a differant email for each account, as long as he is using the same computer with each one they can tie the IP's together. I let them know about the paypal dispute I had also that was closed in my favor. So hopefully this little prick gets shutdown.

If you look at his feedback its all as a buyer not as the seller. So he must have just started trying to do this, or this is the first time he has used the latest account as a seller.

Here is the ebay auction back when I was dealing with him.

1970 pontiac gto endura enduro bumper front - eBay (item 200564242800 end time Jan-17-11 01:03:57 PST)


Differant user name. You can see its the same edura bumper, its just a differant picture of it. In this picture its laying on a ford truck in the latest ebay listing is a totally differant picture. In the newest listing if you look in the right side of the picture you can see the copper colored ford truck setting next to the lemans!

Are you sure that's the same guy? Anytime I see zero feedback, that is a show stopper.. Even low feedback. I feel good if the seller has 100 or more good sales. Got to watch scammers..

It's definitely the same guy. The truck gives it away and the white mark in the center of the bumper, between the openings where the grills go are identical in both photos. Also the white mark above the left (passenger side) inner headlight opening is the same in both photos.

I really hope they bust this guy. Scammers are one of the lowest forms of life, IMO.
