    This chap "stefone" bought a storm case sniper case here:

    hotukdeals.com/for…17/

    Paying half up front due to low feedback of seller, as of yet.. Still hasn't paid the other half…

    Then here:

    avforums.com/for…tml

    Also has outstanding dispute on avforums..

    Not to mention, bought the case here for £60, yet is attempting to resell for £90 almost instantly after purchase.

    Also due to sheer volume of stuff and fact he's given out a computer shop number has his contact details, is no doubt a professional trader..

    Doesn't half ruin it for the rest of us when some slimy little sod like that is kicking about

    Man that's a lot of stuff for sale

    and gave a false home phone number according to feedback so maybe this was the plan from the start

    op get the attention of a mod

    profiteering on hukd goes against fs rules


    they will ban him


    get the scum kicked out of this nice forum

    I wish I got there first! (not srs)

    Seriously though he might need extra money so this was a good opportunity for him. You could have easily asked to get more.

    However, I do think it sucks how he has only paid half.

    reported issue to a mod. What a scumbag buyer!

    The member was instructed to cease trading in all pc related areas during August 2010. Being deemed trader like status does not alter the fact that trading rules and advice need to be followed by all involved in the trade.

    Interesting thread. The Seller is now also banned from all further FS/FT activity. These incidents always read something like Miss Marple. lol

    O/T...kinda....anyone ever see the outcome of the iphone/box of rocks episode on AVF? (unrelated to this person I should say!)

    why is the seller banned from selling?

    For the same reason they have been banned under at least 4 separate accounts in the past. No traders permitted.

    so they've had 4 separate accounts and still allowed on hukd to post?

    Take a wild stab at this and say they didn't give the mods any information to catch them on until ASB did a bit more digging, I don't think scammers and banned members come on and declare there details so they can get banned again.

    That’s fantastic...

    So a banned trader (who is using another account), has another trader who has tried to capitalize on the low price in order to sell elsewhere.. At the same time, does not fully pay for the item.

    And that member can also expect to be banned should they not update the thread to our satisfaction. The trading restriction and penalties for ignoring our previous instruction have still to be applied to Stefone.

    Just blows my mind that somebody thinks it's ok to leave somebody hanging for £30, i'd never do that.

    Even when i sold my Acer Revo to indianbelters, he was having problems (as it was configured sound wise for my av receiver - he was going direct into the tv). I noticed the PM while i was shopping with the wife, so gave him a call.. Wondering round Morrisons on the phone helping him through the settings to get the sound working.. Then again, i'd expect somebody to do that for me aswell if i had a similar issue.

    I swear some people are just out to rape people out of as much money as possible, once the deal is done they couldn't give a toss.

    He bought that case to make what? a £20-£30 profit? Such a small amount to put ya reputation as a seller in the toilet.
