Im in the UK and have a Tech2 wheel for sale.

I recieved a message from a guy called Rodney, asking about postage costs, user name on Ebay and here ,

I gave him a figure , {postage in UK is not cheap} and he proceeded to bid, winning the auction.
After the auction ended he asked AGAIN about postage costs and then started to complain about it being expensive?
He was already aware of the price because I quoted him the same price 4 DAYS EARLIER. He has not replied to any of my messages including the offer to Cancel Transaction , so I dont incur Ebay costs and he can walk away without paying me and NO bad feedback?
I would advise that Rodney....rlddlr53 is a time waster and not decent enough to face up to his responsibilities.

Avoid dealing with him .

I just got a message with this pattern. User name locored (with zero posts) sends me: "Please contact Peter on peterrum8@gmail.com regarding your request. He is located in Kansas,USA and can arrange shipping. I ordered items from him and they arrived in TOP condition."

I contact Peter and he says he won't use PayPal only Western Union or Money Gram. I ask for a pic of the seats. And, he sends me pic from a for sale ad from 2008.

Always look at the person's profile and see if they have buyer/seller feed back. If they dont have a feed back thread look and see if they have a history on the forum and what kind of threads they start. That is usually a good way to start.

IMHO anyone selling should have to 100 posts before being able to sell. This might deter someone.

Years ago when I was complete idiot I sent a guy on one the forums a $300 wire transfer for a used transfer case. Spoke with this fellow about dozen times afterwards and long story short, the transfer case never showed. I then noticed that I had responded to his one and only post. Now that I'm only half an idiot I try to only communicate with known posters with a good reputation when trying to buy something. Trust but verify my friends.

Perhaps offer to buy 'COD', but NEVER send $ by moneygram, Western Union, etc. That is a guaranteed loss at least 99.44% of the time.

And how do you guys find an old picture on the forum in a new scam? I know how to search on words, but not pictures.

Is it a manual search for pics after searching on the item name?

Send a message via MSN to woc
Type on google bar, then press images.^
Looks like we were able to locate the IP address, and we're going to pay this guy a visit.
