how do you know he had 3000+ ebay feedback? He could tell you any id on ebay and say its his... did you verify? Also all a mod can do is ban him, this is a sad sorry bro...!!

No I didn't verify it. I didn't know you could put a random ebay ID up. I'm so upset about this. I sent out two of my favorite cards(2003 Hanley Ramirez Bowman Chrome Auto and 2010 Topps Platinum Dez Bryant Auto) out and I'm now getting nothing for them. I really hope I could somehow get something back for them somehow. I'm literally about to go to the address I shipped them to and confront this guy about it. This makes me never want to make a deal on here again. I really can't explain how upset I am about this situation. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!!!

Just to look at the situation as "glass half full", are you sure he did NOT ship your cards? How long ago was this? Have you checked other sites for the same user id?

Yeah it hasn't really been that long. Only like 3 or 4 days. It just worries me that he hasn't responded to me at all and I can't really do anything about it. This just sucks :/ I wish I didn't trust people so much. I feel so dumb

How did you ship the cards? Any way to have the post office intercept them?

I checked my tracking today. They were already delivered. I guess I'm just screwed now. Thanks for the suggestion though! I really hope this somehow kind of works out for me

People People People. I keep trying to tell people this.

I NEVER trust ebay feedback period. If you are a new trader with less than 20 TRADES or 50 TOTAL feedback than if doing business with me you are sending first.

No one here should be trusting ebay links and such. I dont care if he has 50k feedback on ebay because even though he may be a great seller, he may not be a great trader. Trading is just different.

Sorry this happened to you brother it sucks. I would find out who the local police are there and see if you can have them knock on his door, or see if you can file for mail fraud.

Also when contacting a mod usually they have an email address that you can send him an email to so you can nail his A$$ if you do your homework.

Hope you find a way to work it out.

Thanks a lot for the advice. Hopefully if I do what you said, I could get my cards back!

You HAVE to verify - you can pick any random eBay ID and put it in your profile here.

If you ever trade with someone that has a lot of "eBay feedback" you should ALWAYS send them a message through the eBay system confirming they are who they say they are.

I was on SCF and had a guy offer me a nice AP SPA that he said he had "listed" on eBay but would pull down if we agreed to a trade - so I play along and agree to a trade - and then immediately email the eBay seller through eBay. He had no idea what I was talking about.

You have to confirm. Doesn't mean eBay feedback can't still rip you off - but at least you know it's the same person.

File theft charges with your local police. Give them all messages that were sent between the two of you, and show them the deliver confirmation info showing he recieved.

Yeah I really hate how there are people out there like this. At least you had Paypal to back you, I didn't send anything via Paypal so I'm not sure if I'm going to get anything back :/

I'm out a $10 money order if he falls through...knew it was foolish and a risk from trading for years elsewhere...but alas... found him on facebook and got in touch there...

heard back from him...intends to get the card out to me, so will give it a few days and see what is up. if he comes through I'll let people know...if not its off to plan B and filing annoying mail fraud charges.

we'll see!

I made a trade with him for one of my 1k cards for about 1k of his cards. We exchanged addresses and he claimed he sent the cards, but I have not received them. Atleast I was waiting for his cards before I sent mine

He is on Pat Neshek's forum under the same name (amazingmets). You could try to contact him on there, as he is on pretty regularly.
