This is the guys feedback break down for today, yes, 9 negative feedbacks in one day....

The purchase i made was a xbox 360 for 200 pounds, i paid over HSBC bank transfer after commiting to buy over Ebay.

Its only been a day i know, but as soon as i paid he stopped mailing back, its been well over 28 hours now.

Now i'm really committed for a 360 right now(one game coming tomorrow), and theres a thread in MM for the same price, i really want to go for it, but i dont know whether i should wait or not.

Can you guys help out? i know its a very lame subject :(

Thank you

There was no way i could have known this guy was a scammer....

Looks like someone he's had past dealings with has won all his auctions in an attempt to blast his feedback with negatives. Obvious, but meh.

Wouldn't be concerned with the feedback, although with the non-replying to e-mails after payment I would be.

have you seen the amount of completed listings he has?

I'm afraid to say you've been screwed, but he's doing this on a massive scale so go to your local police station and find out information about his Bank account. Hopefully they'll catch him with other peoples help too.

his address, I always ask for postal addresses to post money even though i dont pay by post.. Hopefully if i report this to police...

EDIT, so will it be a good idea to get on the phone with Cambridge constabulary and report the address?

That was strange. Only showed 'Where are my straighteners' then postives when I first checked. My bad.

Definitely get onto HSBC as soon as possible.

you'll have a very hard time getting your money back from the transfer. Best you'll get is probably going to be cost-£25 from ebay insurance
