Default Watch out for cardseller019!!

So a dude asks me to ship my manning 1/1 to him while his echeck is pending... I told him I would overnight it to him when it clears... He tells me his money is good... I said if its good than pay with a credit card... He says I'm unreasonable and I should take the card off eBay cause I won't sell it!!! Then blocks me!!

Wow...I'm pretty confused here. You say his e-check is pending but then he blocks you?

Makes no sense...

It does make sense.

A *potential* buyer wants to buy the Manning 1/1 greenjdo is currently selling. Potential buyer messages the seller asking him to accept an eCheck and ship the card before the eCheck clears. Seller refuses and buyer is pissed and blocks the seller from buying from them in the future.

I would have done the exact same thing greenjdo. No reasonable buyer would insist that a seller ship a 3K item before a check clears. Your offer to overnight it once the eCheck clears is the best you should offer.

I would be interested in knowing the eBay ID of this potential buyer.
EDIT: I see the ID is in the thread title, nevermind, thanks

It's in the title Alex! But it didn't make sense to me at all, so I engaged in a back and for over 13 hours... I was rounding and in between patients I would re-engage!! I told him I would eat all the fees if he paid by credit card! Infact, if he paid the full price I would have flown him the card personally!!

Transaction didn't happen, he asked if I would ship while the echeck was pending... I told him no

I entertained shipping him a bubble mailer with tracking just to see what would happen!

Looking more closely at this eBayID, this is a scamming account, pure and simple. Check the feedback for cardseller019, both received and left. This is probably just one of several accounts owned by some scammer who uses an account to bully sellers into scams, and once the account is banned the scammer moves onto another account.

Be glad that you avoided the scam, block that account, and move on. You did absolutely the right thing. Good job!

I would not recommend doing anything like that. Playing games with scammers will only put your account at risk. If you knowingly ship an empty package, that is mail fraud and you could get yourself into serious trouble, simply because you are trying to "best" a scammer. The best thing to do with scammers is ignore them, post their ID here, and move on to honest buyers. That's just my opinion. Good luck whatever you do.

I'm in total agreement! That's why I didn't!! His feedback is from the same people, except of course the negative!!
