Went and bought an item (Samsung Tocco Lite) which I had placed an offer on, then Mods locked the thread as the op had been flagrantly abusing the 'bump' facility. Basically, the op then PMd me to accept my offer and I paid via Paypal. All went quiet. I sent a few PMs - still nothing. Then emailed him direct and got a load of BS about item being collected by courier next day blah blah blah!. Sounded fishy. Then I located a previous thread in which the op was selling an Hitachi Hard Drive recently, and the buyer was also suspicious about delivery etc. He was given same BS as me about seriously ill/courier letting him down etc etc and in both cases we were refunded back via Paypal from the op.
Op has now placed 3 items for sale, although not currently active, and seems to be oddly enough having camera problems/courier problems/serious illness/lack of comms and then refunds??????? Cant put my finger on it, but why go to all the bother of listing, accepting offers and then NOT actually dispatching them? Not exactly a scam as he has always refunded (I think?)
