Haribo10 - Never recieved item - Vusys 20'' monitor

Hi,

I paid via BT on the 28th July 2008 for a monitor Haribo10 was selling.
http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/219359/fs-vusys-20-monitor-hardly-used/showthread.php?t=219359

Up till today I still have yet to recieve it. I notice the user has been offline since the 4th August. I've left it a while before posting as he mentioned in posts I he was going on holiday. Being the nice person I am i thought I'd give him the benefit of the doubt.

Im appealing for any relevant information anyone has on the user (contact details etc). He was selling a lot of items recently so hopefully someone has information that I can pass onto the police, which I'm in the process of doing.

Thanks guys!

Did you not get his details before trading?

The only details I have is his name.


Well hopefully someone else that dealt with him followed the forum rules.

This is a really good site and I would trust a lot of people, but you need to make sure you give and receive all details.

Hope you get it sorted :thumbsup:

This is why you should NEVER pay by BT under any circumstances, you literally have no comeback other than a long process involving a small claims court. The police wont give a toss about this.

Hopefully your seller will be back from holiday in a few days but once again DO NOT pay for items by Bank Transfer.

I notice hes on facebook if you do a search. I wonder if he's put his contact details on his profile. Anyone registered under the Manchester network to take a peek?

Hi Lewman, I hope you get your monitor and that Haribo10 is just a slow responder. I was in the process of purchasing an item from him in the past but he only supplied me with an email address to pay (which had a name) and nothing else . I decided to check his previous transactions on here which showed that quite a few people who had purchased off him didn't receive their items. After questioning Haribo10 about the items, he was way too vague. On top of that, he wasn't responding to emails and didn't supply me with any more contact details.

I decided not to trust. See the thread here:-

ok so why is this guy still trading despite all these problems?

this place is getting more bonkers by the day...

To be honest, if users have been problematic in the past then they should not still be allowed to sell here. Looks to me like this person Haribo 10 has made quite a few fraudulent sales and the moderation team here should have acted to prevent him from selling more non existent items.

So if your looking for someone to blame for this OP, blame firstly yourself for paying by BT (something which NO-ONE here should be doing) and I think you could legitimatley blame the site moderators for not protecting people from this persons susequent fraudulent sales..

So this guy has had lots of problem transaction, and hasn't once received negative feedback in the for sale forum?
#12
But not everyone uses the feedback do they? I dd not even know about it untill someone pointed out that I hadnt left any feedback for them.

You should have read the FS FT rules before buying or selling anything on here;

HUKD TRADING FEEDBACK

Please make sure you leave trading feedback for any trade you are involved in. This helps good traders build a reputation and warn others about bad ones. Please read details posted here: HUKD FS/FT feedback


(1) Check the traders HUKD trading feedback. Please read details posted here: HUKD FS/FT feedback

But the point is, not everyone uses feedback. It should be made mandatory, or at least you should get a reminder of some kind. That way people like this Haribo charachter wouldnt be running around ripping people off.
[mod]#16
The biggest problem with the feedback is you can only leave 1 per thread and it's very unusual for someone to just be selling 1 item.......which in those cases renders the feedback system useless.

Thanks for the rules update, I love being out-pedanted ;)

People should have exercised extra caution when dealing with someone who has only 1 feedback on their profile.

You would never catch me making a assumption that a buyer is genuine because he has completed one transaction on here.

I think it comes down to a case of "buyer beware" not anything to do with the mods, after all they can't be expected to act if no one has left him negative feedback. The buyer did have the option to read back through Haribo10's threads and see which items he has sold before and see if the came to a satisfactory conclusion.
