A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.

-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top

    POTENTIAL SCAMMER: NiceGuyEddie

    So this guy buys a differential off of me, sends the funds over via PayPal and the differential is packed and sent. After delivery shows successful, a week or so passes and he claims he didn't receive it. I check the tracking and it is sitting at a FedEx station in IL, and he messages me saying he NEVER received the package. I tell him initially to contact FedEx in attempts to locate the package since he claims FedEx has no knowledge about the whereabouts of the package. He says he has a claim number, and I receive no updates after this. He then opens a claim with PayPal, saying he never got the package and want's his money back as well as demanding the money back from me on here as he claims it never showed up. I let him know to let FedEx locate the package and I may not be able to immediately accept it due to possible tampering and it can EASILY be found by FedEx since it is in their possession and returned to him. He says he wants his refund and I tell him I cannot do so until the differential is back in my hands, at that point, he stops responding. I call FedEx and they confirmed it was definitely delivered to the correct address (July 25th) and the day after it was delivered, (July 26th) was returned to a local FedEx as a "Refused Package". I let him know this and I give him my phone number to contact me, and of course, he doesn't call me but instead, escalates the claim on PayPal. I am continuing to message him with no response nor call.

    I search up his screen name and it shows up on bimmerforums as a Florida Resident whom has posted pretty recently, but I had shipped the differential to a Missouri address under the name "BEN BAILEY" email " benwadebailey@gmail.com ". Has anyone dealt with this character?

    I'm happy to jump in here, folks.

    Here is our correspondence thus far.

    I've gave it time between claiming delivery and reaching out to him incase Fedex mis-marked it.

    Scott asked me to follow up with fedex; they said they ran a "trace claim" on it, but after 10 days it was closed and the package was deemed lost. They said the shipper needed to request a refund via his own complaint using the insurence he paid for. Below is our conversation.

    I have no history on this board.
    On bimmerforums:
    RSkid

    Nasioc: vr-4Ben

    Ebay: Blackvert90

    ETC.

    See the highlighted areas for his contradictions.
    • My diff has never been delivered. I gave it a week incase it ended up at a neighbors or something innocent.

      How do you want to handle this?
    • ScottSneed 08-01-2019, 10:02 AM
    • It has definitely been delivered. Call FedEx and let them know you didn't receive it, they will backtrack and locate it.

      Scott, it definitely WASN'T delivered, had it been, I would not have reached out... I feel like that's obvious. There is someone home full time at that address and there was no package or slip left. I opened a claim with fedex 12 days ago with zero luck. I'll be opening one with paypal next. To be perfectly honest, I'd much much rather have the diff than be dealing with this or getting my money back, only to need to source another diff.

      Just keeping you updated.

      NiceGuyEddie 08-13-2019, 11:40 AM
      Scott, I just got off the phone with Fedex and they are stating you need to file a lost package claim. Please do so and keep me updated.
      My trace claim number: 0801938139

      ScottSneed 08-14-2019, 11:08 AM
      The package was rejected by where it was dropped off by FedEx. I triple checked your address and it was correct. I will not and cannot accept the package due to possible tampering with. I will contact fedex and have them redirect it back to you, if it has been tampered with or lost, we will follow up with a claim. Thank you.

      I'm sorry, what are you saying? Was it sent back to you? It was never taken to the address... there is someone there full time and it was never seen, nor was it stated as rejected... it was stated as delivered. This makes zero sense. Can you please refund my money?

    • NiceGuyEddie
      NiceGuyEddie Today, 10:02 AM
      Scott, I apologize but I don't understand what you're saying. You stated you cannot accept the item back, which is not what I was asking for you to do. I never received the item and it was never actually attempted to be delivered. There are no slips, nor packages at 310 Palisades Ridge Ct, Eureka Mo 63025. I paid $570 for an item that I have not received in over a month. Wanting a refund is 100% reasonable in this situation.

      Why would you have refused it? Why would you have stated you didn't get the LSD back, when you clearly did but refused it?

      Please, give me a call..there has been a mixup with FedEx, thanks
    • ScottSneed
      ScottSneed Today, 10:05 AM
      I called them and they said that is the address for sure and it has DEFINITELY been delivered. I am curious as to what they have told you. I understand you want a refund, but I shipped to the correct address, and I don't have my differential back so that makes ZERO sense to give you the money back until I receive the differential back. The differential is not far from you and will get to you within a day or two. Please call me asap. thanks.

      Scott, I'm not calling you because I want this increasingly devolving interaction to be documented.

      I do not have the LSD or my $560.

      I'm not trying to scam you at all. I'm the one out the $560 with nothing to show for it. I also have a child and am in the middle of a divorce, we all have our shit.

      Let me ask you a question: How can it have been delivered (left at front door) on 7/25; but then also be rejected? But then also on it's way back to me per your comment earlier? It's non-sense and doesn't add up.
      If you'll give me an email address, I'll be happy to show you the claims conversations I've had with them. Can you show me the same?
    This is where it's ends... for now.

      I did lag on response between 8/14 and today but I've been responding today as quickly as possible. if you look at the time stamp, I did not stop responding... I'm simply at work.

        This whole interaction is why I won't do business with members who have less than a certain length of membership or a certain number of posts. Good luck Scott.

          tracking says it was delivered. either fedex or eddie is a liar it seems. maybe eddie changed his mind on the diff and doesn't want it anymore

            Iíd like the diff. Iíve been buying and selling parts for 18 years without an issue. I didnít start an account here in 2014 to scam a guy 5 years later.

            Scott told me it was simultaneously delivered, returned to california and refused. Please explain this.

                I have now left a voicemail for scott.

                fedex told me to have him open a claim, and he has not provided a claim number. Iíve also offered to share my conversations with fedex with him and he has not sent me the email address heíd like it sent to

                      although it says signature was required but also that it was delivered sig not required so maybe fedex is the liar and made a mistake because that doesn't make sense

                          I tried to figure out what was exactly going on, you never updated me after you said you opened a claim for it. Instead of letting me figure it out, you escalated the PayPal claim immediately, even after I let you know it can be found and routed to you. After I called FedEx to follow up on the claim, only then did I noticed it showed delivered, and FedEx said the day after, it was dropped off at a local fedex to be returned to the shipper.

                            Just got off the phone with the buyer, a very nice guy. Agreed to close the claim with note for now to allow FedEx to attempt to redeliver the package.

                              Hmmmmmm could it be that it was delivered to the wrong address, discovered and returned to the shipper? In which case, the seller should wait until he has the diff back before refunding any money. Both parties are pointing the finger but perhaps it was FedEx's mistake.
