    He lives in NYC. I'm sure you could find some NY members to go rough him up for you.

    Times are tough. A lot of those in the financial services sector are looking for additional work.

    Who is ready to be the SF enforcer?

    Leave this post up, and reply to all of his posts with link to this thread.

    I had this exact same experience with another seller...a "Senior Member" with about 300 posts.

    I kept on giving him more and more time...when we got past the PayPal dispute period, he vanished from the forum.

    I didn't make this public...just sent J a note saying he should be alert to other complaints.

    The experience cost me about $250 if I remember correctly. I just chalk it up to a world where you interact with people you never meet.

    This sounds very disappointing.

    that suuuuuucks. I think something like this would seriously damage my faith in the B&S forum.

    It's one that is built on 'community' and a fair amount of trust...once that's broken, there's no going back.

    To the OP, good luck with your dispute.

    On the one hand this makes me count my blessing with experiences on B&S, on the other hand someone might want to bump this later tonight since the guy tends to post more later in the PM.

    Yeah, but if you look at his profile, he was on the forum this morning 3-4 hours after all this started. So, he certainly knows it's here... (it's even on the "Recent purchases" thread, where he has been most active).

    Somebody should start a bad buyers/bad sellers thread to be pinned.

    Doesn't ghulkhan mean King of Ghosts? Sort of fitting that he has disappeared into the ecto-ether...

    Is it some sort of acronym?

    I second this idea.

    ghul = ghost khan = king.

    Based upon his contribution to the recent purchases thread alone, I would say something is fishy.

    When I checked his profile, he was actually reading this thread. He's probably preparing a killer point-by-point response to all the snark that has been posted here!

    Is it Urdu or Arabic? I think ghulthief was of Pakistani origin.

    ghul is demon in arabic. It could be used in Urdu as well as other languages but I am not certain.
