    if you scroll down youll see in a pic hes trying to sell a supreme hat with his forum name wrongwroks on a thai forum. It should be an open and shut case of bank/credit card fraud. Anyone have a direct contact to law enforcement that could arrest this prick

    i tried something like this yesterday this is his response

    "I saw your message, but as I told you, I could not access that account. I am telling you that I NEVER have an intention to scam, and I don't have anything to do with this transaction. Also, I don't know who give you the address & phone number, but I just want to remind you that those information is confidential. Since you stated that you have a cousin at the Bureau, I've been advised by my lawyer not to make any further contact. "

    You sent that through the US Postal Service, Insured, to a PO Box? Open a damned complaint with the US Postal Inspectors Office. They will be able to determine exactly who got that item. More than $200 and insured? It was signed for by someone! They will know who signed for it. If it was him or someone who knows him you have got him, or better, the Postal Inspectors have got him. File the complaint! This is a slam dunk.

    Wow, I didnt realize paypal pretty much F'ed sellers like that...no more shipping to PO Boxes for me. Might have to start requiring signature on receipts too...

    I might be done selling on ebay. There are too many kids buying my shit and then not paying, usually with latino or asian names...not sure if they are exchange students, illegal aliens, or what but there is a pattern. I guess that is better than this situation, but it is frustrating as hell and there seems to be no recourse via ebay.

    I've dealt with a lot of issues on ebay/paypal, and I'm sure you have dealt with more, but I'm missing what happened and why there is an issu.

    • He paid via paypal... did he use reg paypal (fee) with a shipping address you have to ship to, or paypal money owed (no fee, no address)?

    • You shipped him a box via USPS with tracking, signature confirmation and insurance to his PO BOX

    • USPS Website says the box was delivered (and I assumed signed for due to insured over $xxx value)

    • Buyer opens a paypal dispute that he did not receive it?

    I'm confused where the issue is or why paypal would side with him? You shipped to the PO Box, with tracking and insurance and USPS says it was delivered. End of story unless I'm missing something here.


    EDIT - OK, I get it now. The PO Box received it, but hes saying the payment was never authorized you sent it to the unauthorized persons PO Box? Was it shipped to a confirmed paypal address?

    Even then you are probably screwed by paypal as the buyer could just claim you sent a pack of peanuts. Really no way to prove that you sent him the actual item in question.

    Hopefully some pressure from a postal inspector can stop this little punk.

    Nah, the guy is saying someone else fraudulently purchased the item with his money.

    If i read correctly the buyer is claiming an unauthorized charge, meaning it wasn't him(someone hacked his account or something used his paypal account unknowlngly and on top of that sent it to a PO Box that does not belong to him)

    It sounds like the guy is claiming someone hacked into his account and paid for an item that he did not buy, had it shipped to a PO Box that is not his? The Postal Inspectors will be able to determine who owns the box and who receives packages at that box. They will be able to determine who signed for and received the item. Whoever got the item would have had to have gone to the USPS window services area with a slip from the box and they would have retrieved it for that person. They would have only given it to the person if they were authorized to get it. This has a paper trail a mile long so I am confused why a complaint with the Postal Inspectors Office has not already been filed against this piece of garbage!

    Any parcel insured for more than $200 (this was a $2300 purchase, no?) automatically gets signed for. No signature confirmation is needed. The USPS does not want to pay out on a $2300 claim so they absolutely require a signature at the time of delivery, if insured for more than $200. The USPS has records showing who owns that PO Box. This does not seem very complicated to me.

    OK OK, sorry for my stupid post above, now it makes sense what happened.

    1st thing(s) I would do personally (not advise), as said is call paypal, explain the situation and ask them to note your account that you will be doing the following. Contact the post office it was shipped to and open up a fraud report, if it just happened most of them know the people who come in a lot and even might remember putting this box inside the PO Box or who signed for it being insured. Also call the local police department of the city it was shipped to and file a fraud/thrift claim. If he wants to really provide it, grab his lawyers info (I doubt he will provide it) and CC his lawyer on everything, every phone call, every email, etc etc.

    As you said, contact Admins of the forum for IP info if they will provide it (may not be able to legally until you have a police report). I'm sure some of the lawyers here might be able to lend a hand via PM.....

    Please keep us up to date.
