Bad EBay Buyer Beware of this guy! UPDATE!!!

His name on Ebay is AllnBob, his name is Robert Allen from Centralia, MO I sold him a pair of straps and he sent a check so I being the trusting one (which is what eBay needs a good dose of) sent the straps out and his check was bum and bounced 3 times. My bank sent it back to me and he said he would "Make it right"...that was a month ago, I have given this joker ampile chance to "Make it right" So lQQk out for this character, and refuse to sell to him unless its a money order or paypal. If anyone doubts my claims I will send you the picture of the back of the check I can substanticate this claim. Yes I filled out a NPB report with eBay, and gave the guy the full ten days plus 2 extra to make it right. Now I shall "kick it up a notch", can you say states attorney general office?

Across state lines, good luck with the state AG. However, if he sent you the check though US mail, that is probably mail fraud which is a federal offence.

Re: Bad EBay Buyer Beware of this guy!

How much was the transaction for?

If it was for less than 50 bucks, I'd say you have you have reached the point of diminishing returns -- unless you have ample time on your hands. He's going to have enough trouble using eBay from this point on...

my $.02 worth...

Thanks for the warning on this weasel, though! Hope I don't run into him on either the trail or eBay!

Re: Bad EBay Buyer Beware of this guy!

Ack, you probably are correct. Yanno if this guy would have wrote me and said hey I lost my job or I don't have the cash right now but I will make it up to you, then I would have been like fine. But to be ignored ticks me off, Heck even tell me off I don't care just don't ignore me.. maybe I need to see someone about that...huh?

Re: Bad EBay Buyer Beware of this guy!

I don't know what's up with eBay lately! I've had a couple of Bozos in the last month or so. It seems that a good 20% of my auctions have been non paying bidders one of which is on this board. I don't know what's up with him. He's bought lots of Suzuki stuff from me and then on this last auction he just stiffed me and has been ignoring my emails. All I can say is, "Good luck on any of my other stuff buddy....you've been blocked!"

It's ashame that people have to abuse something good like eBay...

Thanks for the tips guys, I've been thinking about using ebay but was a little wary of it. I'll have to make sure that I'm careful in the future.

Baker68:

Don't get too freaked about eBay...

I think that out of 76 auctions, I have been stiffed just once. It would have been twice, but the winner of the last auction finally coughed up the cash.

It does require patience and a rigid adherance to rules. The Captn and Rob would agree that when a auction winner has turned out to be a no-pay after plenty of attempts at communications YOU CUT THEM OFF AT THE KNEES and show them NO MERCY!
