Default Ebay Scum = trading-cards-gallery

Back in December I preordered a case of 2013 Bowman Jumbo. Most of you here know how the rest of the story goes. For months we remained in contact. Come Monday, he's gone. Phone goes from no answer to constantly off, no response to my ebay messages and definitely no case in hand. Ebay is looking into it and I should find out what the resolution is on Monday. I'll be sure to keep you all posted on the saga.

Here's a link to his ebay page... eBay My World - trading-cards-gallery.

Feel free check out his page and ask 5 questions each about an item.

You can be sure I won't stop at just getting my money back. Lou's going down.

Also, his phone number is 203-391-8256. Feel free to call him and let him know what you think about folks like him.

Sorry to hear about your situation and hope you get reimbursed somehow.
If you paid by credit card you might be able to get some help from them.

That said, and without any judgement, this situation is why one should never pre order that far in advance if just doing a direct paypal payment.

Genuinely hope things work out for you and thanks for the heads up about the seller.

Yes echo that.
Kind of hoping that there is a good reason for your sake and probably others.

There are definitely others. He had at least 10 jumbo cases up for presale that I know sold and he had a bunch up with bids for 2013 Bowman Chrome jumbos. I told ebay that getting my money back is my number one priority, but 1b is to make sure this a hole doesn't get away with any of what he's doing.

The other lesson to be learned here is to always trust your instinct. The moment this guy told me to look at his feedback I knew something just wasn't right.

First thing you need to do is call his local police department and maybe his local FBI field office.

Those still exist? Haven't seen one in years. Heck, go to the local pd and borrow their phone. When he calls it back he will be crapping himself for weeks.

Great idea and I am sure the local PD wouldn't mind helping out.Complete skum and anybody that messes with somebodies Money or there family needs to be taught a lesson .

Owe BTW if you looking to find a pay phone check your local Mcdonalds .

I also Pre-Ordered a Bowman Jumbo Case from him back in December. I talked to him and he seemed legit to me, that little ******.

I'm stopping my credit cards. I think you should do the same....

Why stop the CCs? Did you give him your card number? Keep me posted on where you get with this. I have his address and I'd like to try to get law enforcement over his way

He's saying to do a chargeback on your credit card.

First thing you should do is file a report with your police department. I know it sounds stupid, but Ebay(recommends this) and other agencies look at that as a good first step. Very few people will put their word to making a false report knowing there is serious repercussions for a false report.

Also, I would take the phone number down from here because if he gets too many calls and changes his number, you have one less way to contact him. If you don't know his address, you used to be able to request that through ebay.

I had a seller scam me and quit ebay..took a lot of persistence (2 years) to track him and other family down through online resources. I finally got an uncle to give me his phone number. Through his myspace page (yea, it was a while ago) I learned he had graduated the State Police academy. A message on his machine that they might not like to hire someone who commits fraud resulted in a return call and a refund the next day.

Unfortunately for me I didn't use a credit card on this purchase, so I cant dispute the item with my bank. I used paypal funds like a dumb***. Anyway, Ebay cant do nothing but file a police report with usacops.com because it is past 45 days.

@ rutgersjpm

Check your pm.

Who doesn't have caller id these days?

Op i am sorry this happened but with all of the Mamabear and all the others prepaying that far in advance is just too risky.
