Subject: Re: e-bay oil pump dispute
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
I got scrammed out of $78.00 back in July for a CD Burner that I bought
on *-bay. I found and organized about 18 of his other victims and we got
organized. Some were taken for as much as $1500.00 so it was worth our
efforts. We contacted *-bay and they monitored his actions, reported them
to the police in his home city, they kicked him off the same day the
police arrested him on about 12 cases of fraud. *-bay was instrumental in
getting this guy busted. The thief went to jail and I've had reports from
the Da's office about the progress of the case, He's definitely going to
do jail time and must make restitution.
*-Bay is a dangerous place for thieves.
Its a really great place to sell cheap Chinese crap at full retail prices
and that's completely legal.
