Yup, the credit crunch. How did you pay?

You really think all those people scammed you? It seems more likely to me that there is a problem with the postal services.

The warning is probably too late, as several of these users already have left ebay...and do not respond to ebay messages or direct email...

The irritating ting, me beeing patient, believing the sellers the first 2-3 months, then it is suddenly too late to complain...

Hi Arne,

Do you have his information? You should try contacting the postal service or the police in his area since he is engaging in international fraud. As long as he took the money there should be a link to him.

Who is the latest scammer ?

Name names..


It is not only traders who try to scam. Some buyers also try.
I sent 2 fully working pairs of B&O speakers to Turkey (with tracking). The guy said both pairs were not working and he wanted a refund. He started the Ebay/Paypal dispute process which froze funds in my account. I offered, through the dispute channels, a full refund IF he returned the speakers. He refused saying he was so disgusted he had "thrown them away".
Needless to say, he did not get a refund but did leave negative feedback and I had funds frozen for several weeks.
