didnt you exchange phone numbers and addresses when trading?
#2
Yeah he's gave me a phone number i texted it but no reply again. :x
banned#3
if you mean he hasnt answered your pms then he hasnt been on since the 18th nov, do you have any contact details for him? also it would be good to bump said thread to see if others havent received :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:


sorry about the use of smilies, but apparently not using them shows me as uncaring

I don't know how to check if he's been on, I would just like to know if i've been "had" so i can buy dvd elsewhere, and learn a valuable lesson.
banned#5
by clicking on their user name and clicking view profile, have you tried ringing the phone rather than texting?

Give them a quick call and ask them?

If you dont want to do that then click on his avatar in the sale thread and view his public profile, this will tell you when the seller was last online on HUKD.

You could always report it to the mods to notify them that a user is trading and possibly defrauding people via their forum. Maybe they will attempt to contact the user also for you. This isnt guaranteed though but you could ask them nicely to help.

Other than that, if you still get no joy then bump the thread and name and shame the seller to let other users know that they havent posted the item to you that you've paid for.

Also, leave seller negative feedback, this may prompt them to contact you to resolve. :thumbsup:

Just did that, and he only joined on the 2nd and hasn't been active since then, he pm'd me and i said could only do sale through forum but he said he had a problem posting on forum and admin was dealing with it.

Did all trade through pm

I know it's only a tenner, but why can't people be honest

A tenner is your tenner until the goods come thru...contact admin and make sure that this is the case.:thumbsup:

sorry you have had a bad experience, luckily it was only £10 and could have been more, please always follow the guideline put in place to help protect you, and never deal off the boards here, that is the 1st sign you wont ever see your stuff

If not you could always try and open a dispute via paylpal although I doubt they'd get any cash back but worth a try.

if you paid by paypal that's a different matter, take this up with them, start a dispute and if he doesn't respond within' a number of days they may refund you. paypal (imho) are very good at resolving complaints, and it doesn't have to be just e-bay.
#17
Paid by paypal gift, so no comeback there, as far as i believe.
#18
incidentally contact a mod and let them know who you dealt with. Might be wise to also name them here just to see if anyone else got conned or alert others not to deal with them either on the fs/ft board or certainly not via pm until the mods can ban or suspend him.
#19
What DVD are you looking for anyway?

Whats the user name of the user so other people know until/if you get it sorted out.

I assumed not, scammers usually ask for paypal gift so no comeback, although i could be wrong

Done up like a kipper :-(

Never use PayPal gift unless you have actually established some level of trust, i.e. user has plenty of positive feedback from HUKD. Or if in doubt ask someone, mods, users on here that do have a lot of positive feedback...etc....

and never trade via PM, if anyone cant post on here there is a good reason for it.....sorry you had to lose money to learn that way.

yeah even with normal paypal theres little chance you'd get your cash back as they'd just empty their account as soon as the money went in and all paypal would do is send the standard we find in your favour but couldn't recover any funds email aa well.

Many people on here pay via PayPal gift, not always scammers either. If there is a level of established trust then its to avoid fees and keep costs to a minimum, so I wouldnt class all sellers using paypal gift as scammers. Fortunately most of these sales are done honestly, its a minority of those sales that give the remainder a bad name.

Quite an inflamatory statement to make unless you have firm evidence to support that anyone accepting paypal gift is a scammer.

When someone who doesnt post, pms you to buy their stuff they are scammers, and this is what i was referring to, not every other tom dock and harry that trades on here, but feel free to tell me what other payment methods scammers on hukd use

sassie was stating that more or less all scammers ask for paypal gift, not all people that ask for paypal gift are scammers. :)

Ouch known scammer as sassie says.

Makes you wonder how many people they actually ripped off. I'm guessing that there'll be a fair few that will just chalk it up or be too embarrassed etc to come forward.

You can't leave neg feedback, as you didn't trade in the For Sale/Trade forum.

I knew about her/him after another member PM'd me asking if it was kosher in this thread(going by another username).

I am HUKD's resident troll slayer and multiple ID finder, so anytime you need help, or are unsure hit me up with a PM.
