    thats what i thought

    You are NOTcovered by ebay. However, If you can prove a deception, the police will deal with it. I deal with them quite often. Please keep the bank paying in receipt. These people are very easy to locate despite what they think. The last scally I dealt with got a £500 fine in the court, for a rip off of £100 on a psp, so the courts treat it quite seriously at least by where I live
    A deception is defined as
    Dishonestly obtains property belonging to another with the intention of permanently depriving another of it
    There is a timescale here for the scally that thinks you will just go away if he doesnt respond. The caveat to this is if they live abroad, you can pretty much say bye to your cash
    good luck with it

    Why do people always pay 1st then put up a thread after. :thinking:

    Your money is as safe as giving it to a stranger on the street.

    Looks like an honest but lazy ebayer to me. Odds on you will get your item.. eventually.

    The police have been in touch with me tonight.

    The lady who ripped me off £225 by bank transfer 6 week's ago was arrested today.

    She must pay the money back in the next few week's.

    nice one, it does take time though, usually in tracing them if they move.
    However, the expression "thick as thieves" refers to them not being thick as in close knit, but thick as in stupid. At least that is what I tell all of my probationers

    She has done it before and I'm about to contact one of her other victims.

    Once they get in touch with the police, I think she will be dragged through the courts.

    I am almost certain ive seen that ebayers name before as someones feedback credentials on here

    I reckon she has had a conditional caution. She can only have one of these if she has admitted the offence. The condition of her getting a caution is that she repays the cash she did you for. Also it will probably be her first offence. She can only have one of these and the next time she is indeed off to court. She now has a criminal record thanks to you though and from all of us honest ebayers, cheers.

    She has been up to it before but got off with it because she said that she had posted it!!!

    The police have told me that she is poor, aren't we all, no excuse to go stealing though.

    I'm getting in touch with the other lady, she has stolen £100 off tomorrow morning, then she will be getting her a**e severely kicked.:thumbsup:

    Yonks ago I paid for something on usenet paying by BT. It was only a fiver - but a lesson well learnt! You are not covered and the banks will not assist in any shape or form. Given the fact they are basically the law now when it comes to banking fraud etc, they are pretty much aiding and abetting the crime! Nothing new there I guess!!!

    I agree with jtx's comment strobez. looking at what they have sold already and the feedback I think you'll be ok. Any money you pay into another account isn't covered even if you accidentally put in the wrong account number, then you are really scuppered. A lot of sellers are preferring bank transfers now instead of paypal because of fees and lack of paypal support. I think the banks ned to come up with some kind of safeguard or a means to recovering the monies in cases of fraud. In general based on feedback you should be able to determine the honest sellers but you still need to be wary.
