    Nice collection here but the guy doesnt even appear to have it anymore

    MASSIVE TRANSFORMERS GENERATION ONE COLLECTION MUST SEE on eBay (end time 23-Mar-10 07:58:44 GMT)

    We bought the same collection in December and paid straight away

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120509481427

    3 weeks pass and I check up on things and get this reply

    ''Good afternoon Andy,

    Please accept my most sincere apologies for not getting back to you sooner but I have had a major issue occur in my life.

    I am unfortunately no longer able to complete our transaction as the Transformers collection (along with pretty much everything else I own) was destroyed in a house fire.

    I will as such be sending you a full refudn along with an additional £100 to show how sorry I am and also as a small compensation.

    Once again please accept my apologies but I hope and trust that you can understand and appreciate my circumstances.

    Regards

    Darren

    p.s. Would like to think that once you have received your refudn we will be able to leave positive feedback for one another on E-Bay to show that there are no hard feelings? ''


    I think blimey that sucks, then I get wise and chase the guys details via the internet, find out he's not even living at his registered ebay address anymore and speak to his mother - I ask her if the house has burned down and low and behold nope it hasnt.

    Long story short he panics then states he's already spent our money and 2 months of utter stress follow trying to get it back, he only relented when the details were passed to a debt collection agency.

    Avoid this guy I wouldnt want anyone else to go through the nonsense we went througy.

    I really couldnt tell, he only ever uses the same 4 pics aswell as the couple on his profile pic and wouldnt ever send anymore.

    This is the 3rd time its been advertised and he bumps his feedback by selling old CD singles for 0.015p a time, really shadey and I hope no one gets burned by this guy like we did :)

    Wouldn't there be some way of having Ebay remove him? Isn't he violating the terms of service?

    Indeed. If memory serves it was quite a pile of cash.

    But in seriousness: what a cockend.

    I am sometimes amazed people are able to get away with things like this.

    I'm glad you got your money back Andy, and I hope nobody else falls for this.

    the gfuy sounds like an idiot. ebay feedback is a bit broken i think, if someones a powerseller they can do quite alot of bad things before its reflected in their feedback.
