Seller is rking666, buyer is ka1istae. If it comes down to it, I may have to win whatever the next thing he sells is, that way I can get his info...

Ok, I'm revoking that other Super Special prize I gave out earlier....

Follow their sales, and wait until they sell something you want, or something cheap... (but be aware of the statute of limitations) Win it, and try to get their info...

You're brilliant...

Im no lawyer but I believe anything over $500 in stolen goods constitutes a felony. I would talk to your local police dept and see what they advise, I thinkthis is a god case of fraud. You do still have proof of payment(right?), and SAVE all of your e-mails!!!!   I think E-mailing e-bay wll be a long process, and probably useless.   Good luck and PLEASE keep us all informed

You do still have proof of payment(right?), and SAVE all of your e-mails!!!!   Not only that, but save the emails to a floppy disk, also... and photo copy any documentation or proof of payment you may have... just incase...

I think E-mailing e-bay wll be a long process, and probably useless.   (I wouldn't be suprised) You win.

If thats really where the guy lives Hades could pay him a visit because thats about 20 miles from San Diego.

Not trying to be an ass or anything, but this is God's way of telling you that you don't need a stinking Smart Parts gun

On another note, I hope you get your money back, even though the situation doesn't look good because you essentially made the purchase outside of ebay.

Yikes! That's one of the risks of eBay, can't tell if the person is honest.

Ebay usually helps me out when I sell/buy stuff and hit snags, last time I did it I got a response in about an hour.

Good luck, and I'm betting you'll get the money back somehow.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

If this is a felony, Ebay will be REQUIRED to give out either the IP address(es) of the people involved, or any other contact info they have (which is street address, city, state, zip, etc).

So yeah... this guy is screwed...

 

Do you live in the same state as this moron? Beacuse if you live in different states, isn't it out of the jurisdiction of one state or the other? Wouldn't that mean that the feds would have to get involved?

^^^I don't think it really is, he had me send him the money to a western union agent in Cambridge, MA. I already told rednekk98 to hunt him down for me.

I think that the buyer and seller are the same person. If you look under the buyers feedback he never got any from the seller but the buyer gave some the the seller. Another way of ripping people off.

It wont let me get his info either cuz he hasnt been involved in any recent transactions. I think it means recent recent. Like yesterday recent.
