this woman brought my phone off ebay, as everyone else said, brought from LA, wanted sending to Nigeria, said she was new, not used ebay before. Told her was UK only sale but would post it (after I went to post office to find out cost of postage to LA did she email me about nigeria, =second trip to post office)
Found out prices, airmail, sea mail, insurance. Translated into dollars. Insists on using bid pay, I allowed it. Nothing more heard. Then I check today and see this. Have emailed and told her the transaction is cancelled, she is no longer a registered user so I can't even have a bloody rant on there about her!!!
Hiya, thats happened to us to. But it was when the lad hijacked the auction, stuck on a stupid high price for a mountain bike.
Email ebay and state its been unpaid because the person is unregistered and resell it.
Be careful if you recieve an email of the buyer out of ebay, my hubby recieved one from that prospticive buyer, stating that they would send a large check to us, we send the remaining amount back to the buyer. Dodgy money we think!!!
nah jofeb- this was a scam- you send the difference to them and they then get their cheque reversed- don't know how it works but tis a fraud scam. also be careful that their credit card isn't stolen when they pay by pay pal- dh has had this 4 times now- has 'lost' nearly a grand- paypal will reverse a transaction and take the money back off you. this could be done if card is stolen or even some dodgy bas@@rds say that their son/wife etc has used the card without their authorisation- it's a minefield
No, nothing like that, pf - I had last used it on Jan 13th to pay for something on ebay, and then out of the blue on Jan 31st I got 2 Paypal "Receipt for your payment to..." emails, a minute apart.
I notified that they were unauthorised and Paypal say they have been "put on hold" although the debit has already appeared on my credit card. They put the account on limited access until I changed all the security details but it's normal again now. I'm just really boggled that someone has got into it - I've had to change a credit card recently too - how do these people do this????
Ah, we have just got paranoid in the last week or so about spyware and adware, mostly because they've been making everything run slow. We downloaded Windows XP Service Pack 2 this week which has made a big difference; AOL has a spybot thing that runs regularly and DH is going to install Adaware or something when he has time. We have Norton anti-virus and firewall.
The AOL one never picks up anything serious though. Dunno if we need a commercial one? DH is off tomorrow so is going to sort it out (I hope!)
DS1 is always downloading off Kazaa and I keep on at DH to uninstall it but he uses it too...will have to speak severely I think! Any recommendations?
god knows jan. Dh speaks to them regularly and they always get his goat- they charge really high fees but won't help if there's a fraud commited against dh- he lost £600 a few months ago- £140 yesterday- it really pees me off cos he works so bloody hard and then some git frauds him
