Been Scammed On HUKD For The First Time. :(

105 replies
Found 7th Oct 2009
Didn't follow the FS/FT rules to the letter, so it serves me right in all honesty.

Do I need to report this to a Mod, even though the rules were not followed?

how what happend?

What happened? and let us know who it was

A few more details would help unless you want it kept private of course.

I bought an Xbox 360 with the cables on a thread. Went back later and the thread was closed, as one item was still on an existing thread.. I didn't get the guys address or telephone number, and paid via Paypal Gift. He's promised to post several times but due to personal problems says he doesn't have time. Offered me a refund at first, but I agreed to give him more time to post. Now ignoring my e-mails/PM's for a refund, even though I can see he has been online.

Yeah, of course you should report.... and before you started this thread in misc about it really :whistling:

Anything to do with this??

Yes, and I've clicked the magical "Contact Us" button about an hour ago. :thumbsup:

I paid the guy on 26th September, so I think I've given him enough time now.

Is it a lot of money,you can opt to file for small claims online ?

i cannot find a thread where you bought an xbox,Did you deal by PM ?.

Not being funny but if a new user had posted this question they would get hammered about sticking to the rules and getting what they deserve.

Same applies to everyone IMO.

i hate to say it and you know obviously but why did you not follow the rules? they are there for a reason.

+ 1. Trying can't find you posting an agreement anywhere.

Post the link please.

Hi
Sorry to hear this. Being a bit of an expert on paypal you can put in a claim with paypal saying that the goods have not been received. You should be protected. They will investigate this. They will ask the salesman to put in details of how/when they sent the item. If this is not done your money will be refunded back to you.

Not moaning about it, I know it's my own fault. Just wondered if it still needed reporting to a Mod even though the rules were not followed.

Not if it was paid via Paypal gift you can't.

you need to hit the report button in the thread you dealt in, and pass all info on to mods, there is nothing they can do, but it is written down for future recall, not sure about reopening the thread if it was locked for breach of ules, but normally this would be unlocked for a dispute

Username, your doing nothing wrong by giving us the username.

The mods will re-open if spammed. Which i'm inclined to agree with Sassie on expires.

Want to see who his past users were.

it would help as it warns others to be aware of him/her

Likewise. Appreciate the help guys.

Be clear though, I'm not moaning about what's transpired, I'm in the wrong for not following the rules. Just want to make sure it doesn't happen to anyone else.

'view options' under the 'discussed' tab or show tools to the right at the top.

debs when not in a thread, at top right under username, show tools, then to the left aboit, it should say exclude expired if you have included expired on, if it says include expired then you havent got them on, if that makes sense, default is supposed to be include, but if you search in vouchers it then defaults to ecluded, hence why so many poeple keep reporting stuff as stuff isnt seen, it has been mentioned a zillion times but to no avail

Active?

Ah, I see now.

IMO I don't personally think the seller should be identified, this should be taken away from here as we are only hearing one side of the story.

Many Thanks.

Have reported now, cheers for all the help people.

Off to work now, hopefully it doesn't happen to anyone else now!

In threads he said he's moving though so nobody might have any current contact details.

why didn't you accept the refund when it was offered to you?

Yeh qouted wrong one.

Reported also.

You should have a response as soon as ASBO is online.

I'm guessing the guys going through some sort of problems, as he quite clearly has satisfied the mods request, and has refunded several members for refunds on there games.

Thanks greg,sassie,sussed it out now!!
