I sold something cash on collection via eBay, and I wasn't in so another family member took the money and sorted it out for me.
I have just had a look at the money and it's made up of seriously bad fake notes - £20, £10 & £5, the glue of the hollogram is shiny and some purple ink of the £20 has run.
How rude is that!!
He got a bargain anyway with the item, I guess he's laughing all the way home.
Do I email him and say anything? I'd have forgiven one note of one denomination but it's seriously dodgy being all 3 notes in different denominations.

I don't have his details, only email address and eBay name.

Dont be silly... you must call the police as already said!
#4
Take him down, you have his details, and the notes, and the police's non-emergency number...

EDIT: shame about the lack of details, still you should take him down. Perhaps google his e-mail address to try and find out more about him?

Still report it.


How do you report something like this to the Police?
If I report it I'll probably lose the £35 won't I?
Do I report it to eBay as well as the police to stop others being conned?

you can get his details via ebay, and you lost the £35 anyway, unless you where gonna be daft enough and try and spend it, bad idea
#8
this is why i tell them to go cashmachine in front of me or i force them to wait till i deposit in bank.
#9
email him saying he left something at urs...wait for him to come back then BHAM!
#10
you have to have a bank card to open an ebay account as security dont you? So contact the police and they can approach ebay for the release of details.

They may be interested incase he has more fake currency, you may not get your money back but might get the goods returned.

Either that wait till he sells something arrange to meet, get hooded up and stove his head in. lol
#11
He drove about 4 hours to get here - or so he said. He has 12 feeback on eBay, 2 in last few months
He has an NTL world email address - isn't that an ISP one?

Hire a hitman. Simple.

Blame the family member for not checking the money in the first place, and demand they compensate you :)

to pick up a 35 quid item? that would cost more in petrol than the item
#15
My mum was the one who dealth with him - she said she was pleased our boiler man was in as the collector was rude, he just swanned in and whilst she was putting the dog in another room he just opened the door and wondered around the house looking for the office where the item was. Hmmmm.
#16
Let's face it the police are going to do nothing as he could say prove it was the money he gave you that was fake.

Personally firstly I'd threaten him with ebay and the police in the hope he replaces the money.

Once you involve the Ploice haven't you lost the money anyway?

After post #20 I'd be checking nowt is missing now too.

The item was worth a lot more. Seperately over £100 I just didn't have the ability to do it seperately myself.
I hate eBay more and more every day.

Yes it is an ISP email address.

Report it to police and they should be able to get all his details from virgin.

Def report him though

they cannot just knock on someones door and say we think you have counterfeit money
#25
just report him to the police and also to ebay,

"they cannot just knock on someones door and say we think you have counterfeit money"

why they heck not? what else are they going to say, mr blogs of 44 albert drive, sorry do you want a pen to note this down for later? sorry that was 44 alb.... no matter how they get the info they will go over and probably ask to enter first all nicely and then lay down the cards if they can, but if the OP is saying it was multiple fakes of differeing denominations its much more likly he was producing them himself not passing on off by accident so a search warrent sounds much more likley as thats serious crime.

I am sure the police will believe you he handed you the iffy money, its not like you print it yourself then show the cops to see if its good enough or not, however if they can be bothered to get the guys details from ebay or not is another matter.

care to name the buyer ?

Request contact details here,bear in mind he will get your telephone number too so BEFORE filling that in go to my ebay and (ahem) amend your telephone number first if you don't want him to have it.

His details might end up being false anyway so you can report him to Ebay for that.

best not yet.. just incase he's lurking
#29
I'll email him and see what he says though I don't like the fact he knows my address.
I will then report him to the police and eBay because it's a complete joke, I have never seen such bad fakes in my life, glue on the hollogram, ink run..

I've just had a thought, it was a laser printer with ink - lol, probably to print more fake money!!

I think I agree with sassie, it would have been different if you had spotted it at the time.

Wouldn't want him coming back when you're out and the boiler man isn't there either?

Lol, bless my mum, she didn't have her glasses on. They were on the table and I just had to look at them to know. At least it was only £35, still not the point though, that was going to pay for my haircut this afternoon!
#36
Go back into ebay, and go into sold items, then you will see the sale and somewhere on the right of the page you can click on order details, their address will be there (unless thats fake too) :-(

ide prefer messy hair than a knock at the door one dark night, if someone walks into your house like this buyer did they aint got much decency about them

OP, never grass !

try and pass some of the notes off in smaller shops :thumbsup:
