    Well done mate!

    hotukdeals.com/for…862

    Just got conned out of 75 quid for an xbox I never got!!
    Thought i'd wait a week before I opened a thread.
    I've rang him a few times he answered it twice saying it's sent and he'll pm me the tracking number when he comes on because it's not near him and he was at home.
    Guess what been a week and no PM!
    Contacted through email nothing.
    And another thing he occasionally goes on xbox live on I think the xbox 360 which was supposed to be mine!

    So well done mate! Hope your happy with yourself.

    I know especially with someone with low feedback.
    It's because I was told that they could just clear their account and run away.

    Or you could contact paypal, see what they can do, if anything, might be worth a shot, feign ignorance at them
    Send him a recorded letter in the mail also, telling him that you are going to start small claims proceedings, it can be for as little as £50 I think to take someone to small claims court.

    Nothing wrong with it unless you don't get the item! Then you're screwed.
    Obviously if you are a known reliable trader than different rules apply.

    Thats where trust comes in. I personally wouldn't pay for an item first on lower feedback people, been whinned at before by people on here about it, but thats my choice. It's unfortunate whats happened but according to rules you have done everything correct. Small claims court there you go :x

    Really sorry to hear this mate. I've just been through the same and still have not received the item or the money, I paid by BT so I think either way we are stuck.

    My bank said that not much they can do.

    Let's see what happens, I already reported mine to the mods and the user has been banned.

    I think HUKD grow too much and we have to be even more careful now, it''s a shame because this site it's brilliant and only because a few are doing things like this, they could spoil it for everyone.

    Trust schmust. Not when money is involved, you shouldn't trust anyone.

    In any case, sorry to the OP and hope you get it resolved.

    glad to see you have updated the thread and left feedback, may e wise to also use the report button in thread to ask tell a mod what is happening, i know they cant get your money back but maybe they have a list we dont see of people that have taken peoples money and not sent goods, who knows

    Bad news and sorry to hear it.

    If it's true he has scammed you (he might be sick or something, altho doubt it), then andimccann seemed to have a pretty good feel for the guy.

    It's worth looking though someone's previous posts and doing a bit of detective work if in any doubt. And I am always suspicious of people who promise photos and then don't put them up.

    Anyway, let's hope some pressure can be put on the guy to do the right thing eventually.

    Why not send a text giving him 7 days to refund in full or else you report it to the police?

    Send a new text every day to remind him and show you are serious.

    And do report it - whether or not it will lead to anything.

    Too harsh? Compared to what he's done to me.
    And I don't think there's a point won't solve much. But i'll consider it ;-)

    Well me and andimccann were doing some detective work and I asked him about all of it and he seemed to of explained it pretty well I also sent a pm to allstar2 asking how his deal went with him and he seemed genuine.

    Yeh that's what I'm trying to do.

    Yeh i'll try that now thanks mate :thumbsup:.
    Is there a chance they'll do much?

    Check if he's on Facebook etc and leave comments about him.
