bollux

want a quick job?

i think we need a proper thread for this rather than just sticky so we can head each topic with the scammer name maybe?

would be alot easier for everyone to spot the blaggers so they dont get burnt

this seller seems to have made amends and refund THREE people who had fake unpainted knee fetts - and said he bought them like it and never noticed...

Wonder if Edd saw this ?

Good work on the bumping of old threads Gustie, although nothing concrete on the mogwai-zero baggies yet apart from the blue snag that was fake (he said he bought it that way..)

Great idea pete and WSD it would be grat to have an ebayer scammer sticky as well the genuine forum buyer / seller list that im putting together it could stop a lot of new peeps getting burned.

Scammers on Ebay Info

Postby Darth Wensleydale » Tue Nov 25, 2008 3:58 pm

Well it seems to me that we need a place to identify known scammers. Its becoming a serious threat to the hobby and as there are a lot of new guys around this might just save them a few quid.

I'm not talking about sellers who you may have had a single bad transaction with as such, but rather proven repeat offenders. Some of the scammers are also obviously joining the forums and may try and sell through them so lets keep em peeled.

Away you go people, I will try and moderate this thread closely so the information is easily seen.
