High ... Uhhh I mean hi. I used to be known as cyclinseth. You can read my post in the OLD Good/bad trader forum. Here's the rest (start at the bottom and take note of his email address as you read!):


<b>THE END</B>
I am letting you know that I have just contacted
paypal.com to report our transactions. The information
I recieved from the paypal.com agent leads me to
believe that you are conducting a scam. I will under
NO CIRCUMSTANCES release the imac to you.

In any case you have exceeded the 48-hour payment
schedule.

Good day!!!

**** THIS IS WHEN I CONTACTED PAYPAL CUSTOMER SERVICE****
The woman told me that if someone comes to pick up my item I have NO RECORD that the item was shipped and recieved!!! Then she told me that the buyer can tell his credit card company that the charge was unauthorized and they will retract the payment. I'd be scewed!!!

I gave you all the information you need to pay for
and pick up the imac. You are not a registered user of
ebay as of the close of my auction, you have zero
feedback, and you do not identify yourself in your
email address. I am growing extremely impatient and
my warning lights are flashing. If I do not hear from
you by 1:30pm eastern standard time, today (friday,
2/6/04) you do not get the item. PERIOD.

I remember you had inquired about picking up
this item in person. If you would like to do that, it's fine.
However, I can ship the computer out as soon
as I get payment via paypal. I had decided to waive
all shipping charges, and that includes expedited
shipping. But since your email states that you're
in Princeton, NJ it would probably only take a
day or two going UPS ground

The scumbags just don't quit

Hi ... I used to be known as Jive_Turkey, but have changed my handle to Speed_Metal.

So I re-posted my computer with the warning that I will cancel all bids from bidders with zero feedback or are not registered users and I get this email the same day:

> Thank you!
> --------------------

my email response:

How stupid do you think I am? Should I explain your
own scam to you? Here goes:

1. Your friend sends me a paypal payment with a credit
card for $5000.00.

2. I forward you the amount via western union

3. You may or may not pay me the $100.00

4. Your friend calls his credit card company and tells
them he never authorized the original transaction to
my paypal account.

End result: I'm out $5000.00 you pocket $5000.00

I'd sincerely like to know if this scam ever works for
you?

Don't even think about bidding on my computer!
