    Your PMs are full again so I'll have to put this here.

    I bought the PS2 off you a month ago today and it still hasn't arrived. Have you spoken to Royal Mail? If not please can I have all the details such as when you posted it, what service you used, etc? I'm getting very concerned.

    Thanks.

    Have you had any contact from Him/Her at all since you bought the PS2?

    Original Poster

    Yes I have had some contact. She was very efficient at first but recently has been taking ages to reply or not replying at all. I have her name and address and paid by bank transfer. She seemed very genuine and I had no suspicions when entering into the transaction. I'm assuming (hoping) it's just Royal Mail being ****. Whenever I enter the tracking code on Royal Mail's site it just says it hasn't been delivered, which I'm well aware of! To contact them I need to know the date it was posted and the service used, til I get that info they can't help :-(

    Yes, if it was sent by recorded or special delivery, then enough time has passed for her to put in a lost parcel clain with Royal Mail.

    Unfortunately as her PMs are full that isn't an immediate option. Is there any way a mod can increase her inbox size temporarily?

    Yes, why dont you contact one of the mods, I have noticed that he/she has been on here recently.
    Should be able to get a refund, I am sure its all above board as they say:thumbsup:

    I've just got her address. I could write a letter but that'll obviously take time to get there (or get lost) and is easy to ignore.

    Did you not get her phone number as suggested in the FS/T rules?

    Maybe try posting on any other threads that she has recently contributed to..?

    Thanks I'll try that. No, I hate using phones. Bit of a phobia I guess, I would never call someone I didn't know.

    Not too sure, contact the mods first and explain the details to them. I hope it works out for you, probably an oversight. I am sure the mods have dealt with this before, they seem reasonable people.:thumbsup:

    Thanks. I've contacted the other lady who bought stuff off her to see if she's got anywhere.

    Did you get her email..

    Original Poster

    Someone else has contacted me to say they haven't received stuff off her so it appears she's a scammer. Does the site have any way of putting out an alert? Shall I post her name and address in case she signs up under a different username?

    Original Poster

    Is there a "contact a mod" button anywhere btw? I can't see how to get in touch with them. Turns out another guy bought a DS that never turned up. That's 4 people at least.

    Mods won't get involved. Its your problem if you didn't get the details.

    So she starts a thread with all the details on :giggle: (Bank numbers too)

    Original Poster

    I know her bank details and name are correct else the payment would not have gone through. The site NEEDS to publish that information, otherwise she can sign up under a different username and scam more people.

    her details should have been given to mods, thats what stops the same one joining, if people dont follow the guidelines then that is really their fault, we cant have members willie nilly posting members names, addresses, bank details etc,etc

    Why not ring her?

    Anyone can sign up again and again because the site doesn't require all that info when you sign up.

    The bank details do not need the correct name to go through.
    Have you checked the sort code of the branch of the bank to see if it corresponds with the address.

    Not perfect, as they may live in a different city, but it's a start.

    Also you say that you couldn't phone someone you don't know, so PM me the phone number and i'll do it for you.:thumbsup:

    Mods can't really do anything, best you can do is leave appropriate feedback to warn other users then pursue other methods yourself to reclaim your money/goods, by either filing a paypal claim, contacting police in the case of fraud and of course taking them to court to reclaim funds. Of course all these will usually require you have the correct name/address...

    sorry, didn't copy it right:oops:

    This thread makes very interesting reading. You might also notice that sassie spotted something... hotukdeals.com/ite…e=7

    another point, if you keep your eyes and ears open on this site and have a look at the comments made by people you can get a pretty good idea of their character. I remember morganpink08's very first (?) post. It was one of those racist posts that I always take exception to. She said some outrageous things and the thread was pulled pretty quickly. It taught me something about her then and there. I think sassie might have noticed the same thing..?
