    I don't see what he's doing wrong. I must have missed something.

    I think what he's doing is listing multiple GM's for sale and once the buyer pays for it, he then refunds their money on a later date... Sorta like getting a short-term loan or cash advance.

    Basically, he's selling something that he does not intend to sell... I personally know this because I won the auction for this GM a few months back and when I asked for pics after he accepted my offer he just flipped out saying that I should have asked prior to sending my offer and that he couldn't take pics for me because it was all packed up ready for shipping... But at the same time I discovered he listed it again minutes after he accepted my offer.

    Yeah, it really sucks that this guy continues to do this.

    I reported all his listings to eBay... Hopefully, they do something about it and stop this douche from doing it again.

    Wow, gerrutcamaro bought his stuffs! :lol 

    What's a couple of tens when the dude's got hundreds, maybe even thousands, since he's playing the relisting game & rounding up every other unsuspecting Buyer(s?) :drunk

    I got scammed by this guy last year, he did pay us back but over the course of 3 months via cheques, 2 of which bounced. He is doing it to get short term loans using one to pay off another, he needs a fucking good kicking if you ask me.

    Man, he gives a bad name to the other Top Rated Sellers. I can't believe he's a Top Rated Seller like me. What a joke.
