beware of sellers section!!!

ive recently been a victim of a fraudulent seller on ebay. i bought a suspension for my r33 gts off ebay for 235 quid. gues what, 3 months later still aint got it. looks like ive been done good and proper, first time ive had a bad experience with ebay aswell. ebay will only pay 130 max and they take 20 of that for 'admin' fees.

if we could have a section with a list of the accused and their trading names etc it may help others who may fall victim to fraudulent sellers.

We can't do this mate because if it IS a genuine reason, they may suffer as a result.

have you got any information on the seller? I have been scammed on ebay before and with a few tricks of mine was able to track them down to there house and go get my money back

I would recommend only sellers that have good iTrader feedback and also use an escrow service so they don't get their money until you are happy with the goods.

yeah got had for a tubby from a guy in ireland. got his name and address/ email but he wont respond . may have to ask an irish local to pay a visit to see if he is willing to pay up.
why do these people just delight in taking your money then refusing to be of any help. jeez all you want to do is break some heads when this happens.
anyway will try to get this sorted soon
