Guy begged me to sell him an item on eBay (lives ib Brazil) and guess what?
Yup---dirtbag says he never received it even though the Post Office says they attempted delivery.
Avoid the inevitable headache and block him now!

My PO also says 'attempted delivery' which means they are supposed to leave you a pick up card. They screw that up all the time. Not saying that's what happened; but if it doesn't say delivered its not delivered. It sucks.
A real problem I have noticed a lot on here(just in the forums here) is that a lot of bad bidders are outside the United States. Stop bidding with people outside the United States. It really seems like they are shysters. I'm sure some are from the United States but I have seen multiple on here from outside the United States.
italian ebayer. He pays then claim to Paypal and he send back worst similar items.
i sold him lot of cobra officers, he claimed telling Paypal figs were discolored and with some broken parts. Its of course complety wrong! But he send me BACK discolored and broken crotch figures!! And kept the good ones!
i have alerted Paypal and eBay customers services yesterday.
but one advise : block him and told your friends to block him too.
will post to hiss tank too.
Block this ebayer dario.papetti
Long time lurker, I just signed up in the forum a week ago. Anyone had a bid canceled on an item they have up for auction? Just had that happened and while the email claims I can see the reason if I go to the item, I don't see the reason. Maybe this person was a deadbeat. I sadly don't recall his profile name.
To see it, you have to go to the bids link. Scroll down past any existing bids and it should be there at the bottom.
I had another weird one from Brazil a couple of years ago, the user ID is sideswipe-viper. He put a US address so that I invoiced him for domestic, then changed the sales record to show his international address. I called ebay and they said he can't change it after the auction and I asked if they could see previous addresses. They said yes, and I asked if they saw the New Hampshire one, which they could. I pointed out that there's no way I would know his previous address was in New Hampshire unless he changed it after the invoice was sent. He then tried to tell me he didn't owe me any more money and I offered to cancel the transaction, and he paid. Then their crap post office didn't show any scans once it arrived in country so he filed a claim and got all of his money back anyway.
Anybody wanna take a trip to Brazil?
Well after just having an "experience" with a questionable ebayer, which I regard as me dodging a bullet and then some, I thought it was worth giving people here a heads up.
Today I bit the bullet and decided to list my MOTUC stuff on ebay to get rid of it, when I received the following message from bunman2005 regarding the sealed MOTUC Fisto and sealed MOTUC Kobra Kahn I listed:
To which I responded with:id give ya 200 cash for fisto kobra khan and if you have triklops and whiplash and ram man another 300
let me know
What I got back was the following response:Sorry but $200 for Fisto and Kobra Kahn is a bit on the lowball side of things.
A quick check showed those claims were false, so I responded with the following:not really a kobra khan sold for 75 and fisto is 125 to 150
and I was paying cash
hav you got other figs I asked for
and whats your best price then
In case anyone is wondering here are a few completed listings for Fisto - including the auction which went for $253, as well as that auction for Kobra Kahn.Actually the low end of completed listing prices for sealed Fistos on ebay $165 and up (the average falls around the $190 mark). In fact one went on auction for $253 (179 euros) only 4 days ago- so nice try.
As for Kobra Kahn, you need to check the listings again. There's currently an auction with 21 hours to go which is already at over $80 (the only other sealed Classics Kobra Kahn on ebay I'll add). Considering that most auctions take off during the last half hour, I wouldn't be surprised if it sells for over the $100 mark. Furthermore if you were to win that auction, you'd be looking at $40 in shipping fees- a good $10 more than the combined total of what I have on the listing amount.
Under the circumstances and considering that ebay wants a 10% cut of the final amount, I'd consider maybe taking $5-$10 off each. Let me know if you're ok with that, however I suspect we're too far apart on this one.
As for the other figures you asked about, I don't have them.
At this point, I was getting a gut feeling that the guy could be trouble, so I checked his feedback - specifically the "feedback left for others" section, which revealed a couple of troubling transactions:
Horrible Dishonest Seller ,Accepted offer ,then backed out of sale ,Dont trust! Seller:

Buyer wanted a better price by offer to buy large quanity and ended up buy one.
A few minutes ago, I got the following response which simply confirmed I'd made the right decision:Actually, after giving it some thought, I've decided to go with my gut and block you from buying. Your hardball/lowball approach was giving me a gut feeling that you could be trouble to deal with, and after looking at the feedback you left for others and a couple of responses from sellers - which seem to indicate similar patterns to what I've encountered with you - I've come to the conclusion that I probably should listen to my gut on this one. I realise that this will disappoint you, but as I'm just a collector trying to refocus their collection and not a business, I can't afford to take the risk I'm sorry. I wish you all the best in finding the figures elsewhere.
I posted the following response, thinking it would be the end of things.What are you a spy How dare you insult me you don t know me from a bar of soap
I would nt buy off you at that price anyway I v e been collecting for too long to overpay on items from rip offs like yourself . I was straight up with the price I wanted too pay ...and I told you what it was
What I ve discovered motuc sellers are dreamers ..its a toy man... wake up ...a toy
I buy marvel statues for under $200 .... I would nt pay $200 for a crappy motuc toy
Don't ever email someone and talk like your something
selling motuc toys grow up
and send you the link on what I told you sales were big mouth
I was wrong:Thankyou for just confirming the decision to block you from buying was the right one. Your abusive response here has simply confirmed that you would be nothing but trouble to deal with. It's highly telling that you tell me to "grow up" and accuse me of being a "rip-off" in an act which amounts to a childish tantrum because I refuse to rip myself off by letting you low-ball me. Please don't ever contact me again.
I've just sent the following reply and if they continue their harassing messages, I'll be reporting them as I threatened:Ebay filling up with cocky heros
egg on your face .....ha my prices were spot on I was nt lowballing anyone ..fair and reasonable is how I work
Also you don't have to block me I would nt buy off you in a million years dreamer
And let me remind you rudey Don't you ever contact someone accusing off something when you don't know the half
the bad feedback left for triklops cos seller backed out of sale read my comment ..I wanted him it a good price
I will ring up and have them comments removed
and the other seller offered free shipping and went back on there word so I left the appropriate feedback
look at all my other feedback I m a top end buyer ...rare collectibles I pay inastant I have money
not crappy little motuc toys dodgy sellers asking big bucks
these motuc worth 25 bucks and to me that's all there still worth
Their badgering continues:At this point, all you're doing is proving yourself to be a pushy and abusive buyer and confirming my decision even more. Furthermore, the fact that you're accusing me of lying about prices when the Kobra Kahn auction I referred to can currently be found on ebay.com and the Fisto prices can be found on ebay.com.au completed listings, is simply reassuring me further about just how much I dodged a bullet by blocking you.
At this point I am regarding your communication with me as harassment. If you contact me again, I will be reporting you to ebay for harrassment.
And:sellers like you who think there too smart over inflating prices

At this point, I was left with no alternative but to respond with the following:fisto completed listing ... theres been a few at 125 not saying they don't go at 150 either
I don't like getting ripped off so I wait for the right price

so what you saying
watch your mouth next time hero ..I emailed you for business ..to give you a sale
dont reply to me saying I m bad when I m 100% feedback buyer
I only leave bad feedback when shonkys like you try to be shifty
I'll leave it up to members here as to what they do with this, but I thought it was worth giving people a heads up.You have politely been told I do not wish to deal with you and after being asked multiple times to desist from contacting me, you still continue to harrass me. I am reporting all your messages to me to ebay as what they are - which is blatant harrassment. I would also remind you that such an act is in breach of code 474.17 of federal law - "Using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence" which carries a maximum imprisonment period of 3 years. At this point, either you respect my wishes and desist with your harrassment or I look at bringing the police into this. The choice is yours.
