I paid for an item on here 3 weeks ago. It was a wireless keyboard and mouse, I paid £11 for it. http://www.hotukdeals.com/for-sale-trade/fs-labtech-ultra-flat-wireless-keyboard-mouse/859246
The guy in question had 69 Positive feedback, and 1 Negative. I got the guys number and address.
ASB banned him, Why ASB couldn't wait until he had resolved all trades before banning him I don't know. He could have just placed a full trading restriction on him to stop him ripping anyone else off and then banned him when I had my item or a refund.
Anyway I have tried phoning this guy on several occasions and he doesn't answer. He did reply to my txts though and even asked for my BT details so he could refund me... Never got that.
I was surprised because during his time on here he made some high value trades. I'm guessing he thought that because he was banned he Might as well keep my 11 quid. Which just makes him a real lowlife scumbag.
So how do you know when paying Several hundreds to someone such as this guy that they won't just do a runner?
ASB doesn't seem to bothered, but then I think thats him all over TBH.
