ls this ebay seller to be trusted???

ls this seller to be trusted. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....50&rd=1 There is no feedback. Should l send a cheque through the mail?

RLPL shoes from Beijing. And for a low price. No matter, the seller ended the auction early so that the current high bidder won...not exactly kosher behavior. I think someone got ripped off.

Hmmm. Anyone else. Something else strange as well, the shoes are supposed to come from Beverley Hills boutiques etc so why are the shoes in China. l must admit, l had a sinking feeling when l knew l was dealing with a Chinese business women. My experience tells me not to trust this persons business practises yet l am so tempted to send the small amount of money ($117). Should l or shouldn't l. P.S: the people who say l shouldn't send the money better not be a size 7.5.

Don't worry, I'm an 11 Medium. You know what they say about us right? Exactly, it's harder to find good shoes. So that was you who "won" the auction? I'd be real suspicious of some cat who stops the auction as soon as someone bids on their merchandise, particularly when its a very high end product that would fetch a far higher price. I mean, come one, who sells brand new RLPL shoes for $117? Why did you bid on it if all of these things bothered you?

Hmmmmm. Conventional reasoning says: you bid, you won, you pay. But this person's feedback greatly distresses me. Almost all of it is from users who have <10 fb and/or are NARU. And if you check their fb, you keep seeing the same names. There's a clear pattern of NARU'd users and auctions that get ended early among all these IDs. To top it off, your seller wants $40 S&H, and demands a wire transfer, cashier's check, or Western Union (all non-recoverable). What all this says to me is that someone is running a scam with multiple IDs supported by bogus feedback. If you send this person money, I'm dead certain you'll never see it or the shoes. You should never have bid on this auction...but if it were me, I think I'd default and take the neg. Do some research next time.

Ha ha, I just noticed the feedback. All similar and in many cases each seller had a bunch of feedbacks received within minutes of each other. They could have made it less obvious.

How can we report suspicious behaviour to ebay?

I would've gotten suspicious at the Happy Mother's Day

I would've gotten suspicious at the Happy Mother's Day banner a)in December and b)for a pair of men's shoes. Haha.....won't my mom be happy at the gift of a pair of shoes that fit me, but not her. BTW, those exact same shoes (same pics anyway) are on sale elsewhere on ebay. I think this seller just cut and paste the pic to scam. Don't pay, and complain to ebay.

l agree. The mothers day banners are just too much + the shoes are everywhere on ebay - too many high end shoes for my liking and too cheap. And yes, the pictures look cut and pasted several times - well that is my gut instinct anyway. l'm not one for cliche' sayings but, "if it's too good to be true then it probably is". The seller (female) asked me to print out my own receipt and post it with a cheque. [Very suspicious behaviour]. ls this usual ebay practice? Any other comments gents or ladies.

Are you the winning bidder? Marc, definitely do not send any money. This is without a doubt a scam. They have been stealing all of the photos and descriptions and just relisting. You send them money, they send you nothing. Do not bid on scams.

l'm convinced now. Thanks everyone.

I think ebay has shot down a few of their ID's already and they just keep setting up new ones. Persistent buggers, but definitely a scam.

Thanks A Harris, l were hoping you would weigh in here. l notice that the ebay seller grapevinehill is now selling the same RLPL shoes that the [scam] seller ashuaim852 does. grapevinehill has been with ebay for quite a few years and ashuaim852 has been registered only 2 days. Whilst it is obvious that ashuaim is a scammer, could it be possible that grapevinehill is a scammer as well? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....33&rd=1
