Is HUKD just a replacement for ebay scammers?

I paid for some bratz items on 23rd November to a well known community member. I even paid £2 extra for the items to be sent recorded delivery. I paid with paypal gift (yes stupid i know) but because HUKD stated under their curvy name that this person is "a name known to all) i thought it would be okay and they could be trusted. After repeated emails i am now being ignored and still have not been supplied the tracking number. I feel i have been fair and waited long enough for a response before now doing this.
My question is to the general users of this site and the moderators HOW can this be allowed to happen? Why should people who deliberately take other peoples money be allowed to just carry on scamming others and why can't the innocent people do anything about it? It all sounds just like Ebay to me.

even doing that you still get scammed - I should know :whistling:

i have that under my name and i think it's just for the amount of posts you have made. It doesn't mean they are a reliable seller, did you get anymore details such as a landline no or ebay feedback? Hopefully you haven't been scammed and they have a broken pc or something innocent ....good luck

if you have their home number why dont you ring the seller and find out whats happening ?:)

If it is not a genuine mistake, which can happen, then yes they should be named and shamed and stopped from submitting further posts. This is unfair and takes advantage of the site. Not impressed.

NO, i have no personal details, i am in touch with someone who does but what good will that do seeing as this person lives miles away from me? I am not traversing the country for £20! Not that it isn't a lot of money to me but the item was supposed to be a gift for my 6 year old. So cheers curvy_chicka thanks for that.

always follow the rules of enagement before trading as stated at the top of the forum

Has the member been on this site lately?
They could have had a crisis and then HUKD last thing on their mind?

Or they could be a baddie!

here we go again , no personal details , why are we not reading the for sale rules posted by the site mods, I just have a feeling some people are hoping that the deal is too sweet to bother about land line numbers and votes checks etc.. why oh why oh why

first thing the mods will do is state the same as we have

read the rules etc


come on common sense will prevail when trading with people on the internet who you do not know

what do you expect the mods to do, except ban the person and then as you got no personal details you have no way to contact them.

The only thing i think mods could check for you is if the person has a multi id which is against the rules but lots get away with it.

Sorry you been scammed but may be xmas post ive heard of a letter taking 14 days , so parcel could be expected too as well.

HMV emailed me sunday my game was on its way im still waiting, things just taking forever with some things and not others As ordered off another company last week and got it next day

I guess the message about the rules might have got through by now.

the seller has also not sent another item as somebody left them a negative feedback yesterday.

you need to contact 1 of the other people in their feedback and ask them for any personal details they may have like phone number etc as they have dealt with a few other people on here

scammers are everywhere these days and you need to be careful especially when there are no safeguards in place on public forums

post as many of their personal details here for all to see you may find some one who lives round the corner from them and then take it from there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There should be a sticky for bad sellers....

so you ignore all the fs/ft rules and even paid with paypal gift and then think HUKD trading has flaws. Follow the rules.

they are there for a good reason as you have discovered :thumbsup:
