I must have been the other buyer or at least one of them. I had pretty much the same experience except I have yet to receive my money back.Well I'll first start off with saying communication was somewhat poor. He said it was available so I issued a money order then he said it was sold. A week later he says the seller backed out and the intake was available. I get the money order reissued and send it the next business day. On both occasions I say I would like to purchase it. A week and a half latter he tells me it was sold to someone else. He says he sent my money order back. Although he did not steal from me I feel as though I cannot trust him and would not recommend doing business with him.
We agreed on $120usd shipped for his BSR intake. He said he didn't have Paypal (which maybe should have been a red flag) and asked for a draft. Bit of a PIA but fine. He said he had positive feedback from other members plus it was only $120 so I agreed and sent the draft on the 12th of Feb and messaged him a photo of the draft.
He message me on the 20th saying he hadn't received it yet. I asked him to give it a few more days as it was coming from Vancouver, Canada.
On the 27th he messaged me saying the currency exchange couldn't verify the draft and he didn't have a bank account so he would be sending the draft back, thanking me for my interest in his intake... I responded letting him know I work for the issuing bank and included a phone number to the branch that could be called to verify the draft.
March 2nd he responded asking for my Paypal so he could issue a refund via his dad's Paypal account.......... Why could I not have just sent the money there in the first place??? I said I'd rather he just mail me back the draft. I did not receive a reply.
I sent two follow up emails since on the 16th and 27th and never heard anything back.
I had the bank to a trace on the draft today and they found it was negotiated and cleared on the 3rd of March. This SOB just blatantly ripped me off.
A peek at his profile today shows he was on the site 19 hours ago which rules out the possibility of him not having been on the site for some time and missing my messages. He would have got them.
Being fairly new to this forum, I don't know how these types of situations are handled however I would expect a member ripping off another would be grounds for banning if nothing else.....
Buyers beware! :nono;
***Edit*** Just saw the other thread about others he's ripped off. Damn, now I'm really pissed.
