Anyone advise on how best to deal with this?

122 replies
Found 18th Jul 2009
Basically Ive sent a hundred pounds to a member on here & they agreed to send the item special delivery but after four days I haven't received anything so a messaged the contact number they gave me & when I called they kept hanging up the phone!
I rang the S*** out of the number & eventually got through to someone who called me a F****** P****.
I have all there details including bank details, address, & ebay user names, whats the best way to deal with this if they rob me?
I'm not giving any names or anything as there may just be a problem or something so will give them a few days before chasing this up as I have no intention of taking this on the chin.
Rep for any help.

Do you think I should give them a while as they said they were going on holiday so may just deal with it when they get back.
The thing that worries me is the aggression & language of the person I spoke to on the phone.

Looking at his feedback........you are the 3rd person he has scammed.

I'd go for the police as well, I don't see any point waiting because if they won't even answer the phone it doesn't sound like they have any intention of shipping the items to you. Of course I may well be wrong but it seems very suspicious, they've also not been on the forum for the last few days. Also, if you look at their feedback it looks like they've scammed someone else on a mobile phone recently unless it's been resolved since then. It's probably worth getting in touch with that member and getting them to go to the police as well as it will carry more weight if the person has been scamming multiple people.

Have you tried any searches online using the person's details, if this member has been doing this on other forums you may find other people who have been scammed.

I would not hang around, why wait for him to give in and send you the item out of necessity?

It is clear from the communication you have received that he has no intention of being polite, or dealing with you as most members on here would.

Go straight to the Police tomorrow, forget about the holiday, no decent person would make a trade right before a holiday without being able to send the item, and I agree this is probably false and a delaying tactic.

Police immediately.

Just got a message from the member who bought the phone & he said it didn't turn up & now he's ignoring him!
I tried to message him all the details I have & to advise him to go to the police but his inbox is full, not looking good now

To be honest. reading the initial thread, this guy was dodgy from the outset. leave the Bs here and just go to the police, or you dont really care about losing your cash.

Not your place to disclose his personal information either to other members so please ignore relevant posts asking his position or you may find yourself at the brunt of a suspension.

Thanx for the heads up, he seemed genuine so I believed him & thought I had enough details.

Isnt that shocking!!

Its people like that that make everyone else wary on FS/FT,

hope it gets resolved for you soon.

TBH, i would be straight down at the police station too. £100 is way too much of your money to be lining someone else's pocket! xx

Fair enough if this is genuine but if you'd answered your phone and explained this to the buyer rather than ignoring the calls then the issue wouldn't have arisen in the first place.

2nd that & I was kidding & telling people not to jump to conclusions if you read the thread properly, I also didn't mention who it was until someone else posted the link!
Also it takes one day for special delivery & you've ignored my texts, messages & you still haven't responded to a single email for five days so who wouldn't think the same as me?
Why not just answer the phone & apologise for the delay?

I spoke to someone once who said its been posted special delivery & then I was called a F***** P**** because I texted that I would go to the police if you rob me.
When someone has a hundred pounds of your money & then just ignores you who wouldn't think the same as me?
I think if anything Ive been more patient than most people would be, as you've seen most people in here would have been to the police already!

Also my postman's been every day so far with all my other post? Fair enough it could be delayed somewhere else so why not just send me the tracking number, why are you still ignoring me as well??

As Soon As I Am Back I Will Show You Proof Of Posting And Tracking

I hope you mention to the police the abuse I got down the phone as well as I'm sure they can check that as well & I was nothing but polite.
After being called a f****** p*** by someone who's ignored you & has your money they'll understand, I haven't threatened you personally & I haven't called you any names either so knock yourself out.
I think most people on here are just having a laugh & aren't serious & think also you've brought this on yourself.

Ok, This is getting out of hand.

celticfc, let me know when you sent the item and when you will be in a position to inform the OP of the tracking number.

It's your responsibility to ensure goods get to the buyer. Calling a concerned buyer a muppet is not doing you any favours at all.

1 - St George has made no threats........that was other users.

2 - Special Delivery was unnafected by the strike

3 - Whose broke in and answering your phone?

I think maybe Her boyfriend answered the phone & she's on holiday which is why theres been a delay, I apologise if Ive done anything to upset you but try & look at it from my point of view for a second.

Since you haven't replied to any emails or made any contact at all apart from this thread maybe you could tell me when your back from holiday & when this is going to be sorted?
