I use couriers on a regular basis for sending out ferret boxes and exercise wheels, the tracking number is given when you book the couriers Not when they pick it up

Still no tracking number and unable to get hold of him since this morning, what I I don't understand is that if he is indeed a con artist then why bother returning my calls and messages after he had the the money yesterday? I am really confused.

My wife made a payment via bank transfer for a mobile phone from ebay before...

 

She never did get her cash back, but the shit head who ripped her off did get sent down :thumbs:

 

Good luck

I was conned out of a pistol by a bloke on here, he was a paid up member too!

 

I sent a cheque as payment then nothing- no reply to messages or texts for six weeks so I named and shamed him on here, he then got all stroppy saying it was a simple case of his phone deleting my address automatically!

 

I then got verbal shite off someone on here for naming him! the gobshite could have been his next victim too!!!

 

The bloke did the dirty on me, I thought everyone should know so that no one else was ripped off by him!

 

He was banned eventually..

 

 

Good luck getting your money back or the gun that you paid for  :thumbs:

 

 

 

John  :bye:

It does sound a bit fishy ! If you have an address for the seller, I'm sure some genuine member of the hunting life forum will live nearby , the seller may require a visit, then the genuine member could always collect the gun in person & send it on to you, I have bought rifles in the past & sent them on to other members of this forum in the past , there must be others on here that would do the same for a fellow member

I still had no response from him since yesterday morning, but I am ready grateful for all the support from you guys.
My wife kindly offered to give me 250 pound to cheer me up :). It was was really silly of me to believe in this guy, well lesson learned

Since it was Friday when you struck a deal , & our ''royal post'' is not what it was (by far) ..He maybe thinking he don't want the rifle sat about in some damp unloved room until monday deliveries start ;) Ask for the tracking Number..as it will have to be parcel force or a courier for the size  ;) then you can over see the delivery.

 

 

Be patient, ''paypal ''is the biggest scam..Bank transfer you have options.

 

with paypal payments can be reversed , (not saying you would) but some do ! & then once item is received the seller had the reverse situation.....so ALL beware..ebay/paypal is a SCAM

He said the rifle has been collected by currier yesterday, I will post his address if the rifle does not turn up by Thursdays next week. Like the other members correctly pointed out he has not committed a crime yet, but is highly suspicious
