Alright, I've been getting a bunch of PM's asking what happened with my Shocker, so I'm gonna tell all of you, weither you cared or not.

I was bidding on a Shocker on ebay, and lost. The next day the seller emailed me saying he'd sell it to me because the winning bidder didn't have the money to pay for it. So I emailed the winning bidder, he said he told the seller he didn't have enough for a few days, and hadn't heard from the seller since, and wasn't surprised he offered to sell it to me. So I went ahead and sent the guy $665 via Western Union like he wanted, and paid a $59 Western Union fee, putting my total up to $724. He picked up the money, emailed me saying he sent it and it'd be to me last tuesday, and I havn't heard from him since. Tuesday came and went, and I emailed him several times, getting no answer. Now I checked on ebay, and he got feedback from the high bidder saying he got the gun. I talked to the high bidder and sure enough, he has it. So I'm out $724. I'm trying to find a way to get his adress, that way I can take him to small claims court. But untill I can find that, I'm screwed. And I sold my A-5 to afford this gun, so now with the exception of my pump, I'm gunless. It really sucks....

Also, sounds like the winning bidder is in on it. Check to see if his feedback is low and its a fake account. Good luck getting your money back.

you can not enform ebay because your biggest mistake was doing that you should of told him to re list it with a buy it now so it could be saw that you acually won it. but sence you did it out of ebay, ebay has nothing to do with it so sorry to break the news becuase ebay cant do nothing about.

 but trust me i believe you

I emailed ebay about it, hopefully they can help me, but they probably won't. I also emailed the guy that won it, asking him to send me the guys info. If I can get that, he's gonna find himself getting slapped with a lawsuit. I really hope the winner will cooperate.....

It seems you are up crap creek without a paddle. If you told ebay that he scammed you, they MIGHT contact the proper authorities and give you a break, but I doubt it. But this could be bad publicity for ebay. Oh, and what are the seller/buyer names.

You win the super special prize.

If we can get the user names, we can find out who did business with them... Which means we can probibly get addresses...

Most importantly - People suck.
