Advice needed on someone trying to rip me off on ebay.

Some guy bought my phone off ebay and paid striaght away, i sent via special delivery and he got it next day. Then he left me postive feedback striaght away.

Then i see he has unregistered off ebay and starts a dispute over not recieving the item for no reason at all! A few weeks later

It this a common scam? and why me?

Report him to ebay and tell them what you have told us.

Good Luck.

have us till got the special delivery number?

if you still have a tracking reference you dont have nothing worry about AND he left you positive feedback, so would have thought he hasnt got a chance.

Quite possibily he raised a dispute over the wrong item??

inform paypal about him leaving +ve feedback. give them the tracking number so you have proof of postage.

has he got an unconfirmed paypal?
wat address did u sent it to?
his name?

im thinking, that he is going to make up an elaborate story because why go through all that bother when i have adding the tracking number to the transaction already and it tracks as delivered on royal mail.

What is his name, exact thing happened to me a couple of months ago, he claimed he didnt receive the phone, I ended up claiming the money back through Royal Mail.

some people are just opportunists and think that they can get away with it....

all is needed to crash his theory is the tracking number unless Royal Mail delievered to a neighbour or left it with someone else (flat sharing??) so it has a different signature and he now claims that he hasnt signed for it?
On Royal Mail website you should be able to see the signature if you go into detail...have you checked if it reads anything like his name?

In that case anyway I think it would be a claim against Royal Mail

also if you are claiming against royal mail, you have to send all original documents so if it gets lost you are only left with photocopys.

Still waiting(about 3 months), on my claim, due to having a phone charger damaged on transit.

so hopefully won't come to that

If he left positive feedback on the item that's all the positive proof you should need.
Nobody leaves positive feedback if they haven't received the item !

Even though he has unregistered the feedback should still show in your feedback listing.

maybe there is no pic because too long time has elapsed or they dont have the signature or they lost the signature paperwork (if signed on the old fashioned piece of paper) phone Royal Mail tomorrow, dont forget to get the number from saynoto0870...

dont know what documents you are referring too but I am sure photocopies would do?can youreprint your invoice on Ebay?

Still I was about to forget that he left positive feedback :oops:, I am sure that will have huge implication with Paypal in your favour

Good luck!

This is what I do on Ebay:-

Send everything tracked by Royal Mail, then ebay message a despatch note with the tracking number on it. For good buyers it offers them the opportunity to trace the items progress, for potential bad buyers it lets them know your covered and will prevent any funny buisiness.

Your tracking number is proof enough for paypal make sure you reply to the claim with all the details and when paypal check the tracking they will find in your favour.

What did the email say, was it definately an INR dispute?

Ignore all the people saying positive feedback will mean you get your money back, paypal ignore feedback in disputes

What does the online tracking say. If it says delivered (forget about the POD for now) then if its an INR paypal should find in your favour.

It can take up to 3 days or more for the signature to appear on Royal Mail tracking, but there will be one.
