I boughht a phone on here two weeks ago from tinkerbellxx
After two weeks of her getting suspended and making excuses for not posting the phone out she sent me a message on Friday with the tracking number. Then I found out she also sent the same tracking number to someone else who she sold another phone to.

After messaging people I got her real address as she had been giving different ones out.

Now she is more than £90 up and ignoring my messages.
Shame it didn't happen this time last month as my OH was working away about 10 minutes from where she lives.

Anyway...could/would the police do anything?

Thanks in advance for genuine non time wasting answers

and yet said member still has no negative feedback

I paid via bank transfer. No-one has received any phones (she was selling 2)
I don't know her real name, she has given a few different names.

I'm waiting just incase she is going to send it out. Then doesn't send it out because of it.
#7
have u called her - or is her number false too?

I know people need to start somewhere in the FS section but I would never buy anything from a new member with no feedback - unless they posted first

notice she was online a couple of hours ago

yes but she only joined this month - next time u deal with a new member get them to post first. A lot of them dont mind at all and it helps build up their own feedback/trust with members

I really hope u get it sorted - I would hate to be in the position

£25. You obviously get that back if you win the case.
#29
You can contact police as it is obtaining money be deception as she has obviously not sent the phone if she has provided the same tracking number to 2 people

I'm sure she means the name she has been given as opposed to her username.

If they know where they live then a Google search or 192, HMLR, tracing agent , ER and 118 would make it very easy.

I'm surprised no one hasnt told you to dial 999 yet :)

Unless LL'sM is a mad stalker( a possibility) then I don't think she can be confident that the name she has given is correct.

The police were very helpful when I and others got ripped off on ebay.
