Default online fraud

i've been comprehensively ripped-off by a member of diyAudio. i contacted him through the forum regarding a malfunctioning piece of equipment and he agreed to repair it. i shipped it to him in norway. some time later he told me the work was finished and i sent him some hundreds of euros. since then i've heard nothing. no further contact, no response to email etc, and of course no repaired equipment. i recognise of course that "caveat emptor" applies in situations like this, nevertheless i'm wondering if diyAudio has a policy about fraudulent activity. should a warning be published or something like that?

boydk yes it is indeed RM. i read the other thread and the modus operandi seems identical. 300 euros and the theft of equipment - i think this is something that the police should investigate, especially since its apparently not an isolated incident and has been going on for some time. i have a an address, a phone number, an email string, and postal receipts etc. but i'm unsure how to proceed.

If this fraud is proven to have taken place, this member should be banned from the forums.

The Police wont investigate unless you go to them and report the crime. Gather all your conversation / bank receipts / receipts you had with him, in digital and print format and head to them.

Even the address you have used to send the item to.

What a shame one person spoils it for the rest.
I have sold a few items on DIYAUDIO without any problems.
Some items have been worldwide.

boydk - RM contacted me by email yesterday saying he "will be able to ship late this week", but since i've had a number of similar assurances over the last 3-4 months i'm not holding my breath in anticipation...
