skanner786... I think I've been conned...

He said he would ship frdiay, meaning it should technically come Saturday which was yesterday. He hasn't been online since Thursday and I've just noticed he's got an unverified PayPal.... dam!...... (I hate paypal - it should tell you about the seller)

Paypal won't let me dispute because I sent it as a gift payment... shall I contact paypal directly?

Give the seller a call ?

It's not very nice to jump to conclusions so soon.

EDIT - plus what is the correct username?
#2
How??? .... I've emailed and Pm'd him..... I'l wait until tuesday for it to come (That'd mean if he has sent it 2nd or Standard Parcels its the time it ought to have came)
#3
maybe something came up, it is a bank holiday weekend after all I'd wait until Tues or Wed they may have posted on Saturday.

What do you mean, "how"? Don't you have his personal details as per the for sale forum guidelines?
#6
Good point..... hmmm....

The way I see it is;

New member no feedback
Unverified paypal address
disposable e-mail address
Dealt by PM
Hasn't been oline since you paid

is what RedIron pointed out..

I know lol

I take it you e-mailed his paypal e-mail address?
#11
scanner? more like scammer
#12
yes...... ebay........ ebay..... ebay....... contactius may be a good idea to see if it is linked with that paypal account, although then again if he is unveriffied then his address has not been given right?

I checked, no E-bay account registered under his e-mail address
#14
although then again, ebay can store your address as thats probably why anytime I use my Paypal on my parents ebay account it isn't addressed to me...

hmmm..
#15
how do you know his email address, direct me to the page showing how to find via email.
[mod]#16
To be fair...........Royal Mail don't always hit the 1 day delivery. A lot of my post seems to take 2 days for 1st class as it has to go through 2 local sorting offices.

Go to E-Bay
advanced search next to the search box at the top
on the left is a link called "find a member" click that
Put in his e-mail and the verification code and hit search

It could be him, but the e-mail he used to sell to you doesn't have an attatched e-mail address so that user could be anyone
#24
what mozilla is tht it looks kwl?
banned#25
So you don't know how he sent it and you are calling him a scammer already?
If he sent it standard parcels i wouldn't expect to see it for at least 3-4 working days (so wed/thurs), same with second class.
#26
It is the Abstract Zune theme.
#27
cool..
#28
He says his e-bay username is scanner786 in one of those threads

Surely someone with over 100 feedback would have a verified paypal account?

It looks to me as if he has picked a random user from e-bay set up a disposable e-mail using that user name, registered a paypal account with it and then conned you. Of course I could be wrong though
#29
I just found it randomly yesterday, was getting tired of the normal firefox theme.

You've raised a good point here as lots of sellers are asking people to send Paypal as a 'gift' payment to save on fees. However, if this stops you from disputing the payment at a later date should this be pointed out in the FS/FT Guidelines so people are aware they have limited options if anything goes wrong?
#31
have you tryed looking on myspace or face book for his email address? It might bring up a user name and some details you could begin there

I'm starting to think the same thing.

Very good point, you should start your own thread on that :thumbsup:

Pretty much as Colin says, RM describe standard parcel delivery time as "within three to five working days of posting" so even posted on friday (if it was) then this could mean friday next week or if the don't count Bank Holiday monday, then monday of the following.....

(And even that had "we AIM to deliver your parcel within 3-5 working days")
#35
Personally, I'd give it a few more days. The post round here is absolutely shocking, I don't think I ever get anything the day after it was posted.

Still do your fishing around in the background, just incase, so that if nothing turns up by say next Friday, then you know what your first step is. I hope it turns up though :thumbsup:
#36
I'll just hope it comes then... he said he'd send it 1st Class Recorded is what I am pointing out...

The way I see it is if he is legit and he has sent it but it's been delayed he will fully understand Tim's actions, even if a paypal dispute was started I would personally understand why

Everytime I sell something I always send the buyer a few messages to make sure they got the item, scanner hasn't even been back online and the signs do look dodgy

I just did, mate. Although I think the buyer here should give it a bit longer as Royal Mail can be very unreliable, but it might help someone else from losing out in the future. :thumbsup:

Thank you RedIron..

I'll give him a couple of days but....
