A buyer messages me about a shirt. The username has "dmontez" in it. His tone is a red flag. He submits low ball offers and I decline them. He runs out of offers. I block his username. A couple hours later I get an offer on the same shirt from a different user. I decline the offer and assume it's the same guy trying to bid from a different account, but I can't block this second username because I'm driving. Both usernames have hardly any feedback. Before I can get home he submits an offer on the shirt that is automatically accepted by the auction. I know I'm going to cancel the order as soon as I get home, and when I start the process my suspicions are confirmed when I see the shipping address is Desi Montez.
He sends me a message asking why his order was canceled and I tell him that I canceled it because he tried to buy the shirt from multiple accounts. It's nothing personal, I tell him, I'm just protecting myself as a seller and both myself and eBay believe this behavior is a red flag (I had already called eBay).
He responds by saying "You must have me confused with someone else, this is the first time I've messaged you." I point out that both of his accounts are connected via the one username being dmontez and the shipping address on the other account being Desi Montez. I also told him that his dishonesty on the matter reinforces why I canceled the order. He responds:
Obviously your decision to make, but the guy's actually pretty active over on AAAC. He's a good guy from my experiences with him, and I'm surprised y'all got off on the wrong foot like this. I've bought from and sold to him through the thrift thread over there and never had any issues.
