so I just had a buyer buy an xbox from me and ask me to ship it to an address that wasnt her paypal, as she did not know it was still under her old address. Issued a refund and they said they would change their paypal info and just pay again. Will this work? Does this sound like an honest mistake, or a scam?

Im a top-rated seller so I would think scammers would tend to avoid me, but I dont know, maybe its the other way around.

Should work as all you need is to send to the confirmed address (2nd payment)
The fact that you are a top seller might just make you more prone to attempted scams as they might think you will just let it go ...

Please watch out for Kyle Corey. He filed a dispute with me on eBay for not receiving the code and he had made numerous excuses that the codes that he entered 5 times were invalid. I tried verifying it again and it said redeem and now he's changing his story. He demanded another code, so I sent him another one and he said he hasn't receive it.

Here are yet more scammers with hijacked ebay/Half.com accounts. (Don't be a victim like myself!) Avoid mailing anything you value to :

ASHLEY MCGIRT
5048 Needham Road
Bailey, NC 27807

Just sent a game to this "person" right here. Ebay emailed me right after I got home from the post office. Printed the label through Half.com and used DC, so here's hoping. At least it's only $20, still sucks ass but it could be much worse. Guess I'll Google everyone's names and addresses from now on.

Son of a bitch. :bomb:

Finally some good news for sellers that use paypal. Don't know if it was posted yet but paypal recently upgraded its seller protection policy and will refund sellers against chargebacks as long as you have a tracking number and ship to the confirmed address. In late September I've had two unauthorized purchases/credit card company charge back claims refunded to me because I uploaded tracking info. It only covers physical items and anything over $250 needs signature confirmation. You can check out the full breakdown here.

https://www.paypal.c...tion-learn-more

Replying to an old post, but no protection if the buyer claims you sent something not as described.
I'm confused though- what's going on? Are the addresses all fake? Or are they the real addresses and the scammers are just doing chargebacks?

Anyone been seeing a lot of activity from new half.com/ebay accounts (0 feedback) lately? I've had several come in recently with the telltale signs of BS orders, but I wanted to see if anyone else has as well?

One account that is just screaming chargeback is some bitch that changes the delivery name and user name with each new account, but is using the same address:

Would recommend listing both the 5 digit zip code as well as the 5+4 full zip, as searching for just the 5 digit will not return posts with the 5+4 i.e. searching for "12345" will not return any post that has "12345-6789"

That Prodigy Network is a UPS Store, I don't know if you can complain to them about there activity. If you need any help I live a little bit west from there to file a formal complaint.

It hasn't happened to me, but it seems that many others have had her file chargebacks/claims against them saying she never received the games, but then she went on to list the games for sale.

Now I will not be shipping to any third party "forwarders".
Recipient is actually in Costa Rica and after I issued a 100% refund (dumb on my part) I found out the addy was for a company after issuing the refund...

Originally I tried to track it throught USPS Delivery Confimration which showed shipment 4/1 received in Miami 4/3 but not "delivered"... after 4 days, USPS was unable to confirm delivery, so I refunded (recipient had filed by 2nd ever A-Z... first one was a definitve scammer and I won)

The forwarding company investigated and the game was received 4/24...

Can anyone help me out with an issue I'm having with an Amazon buyer? I recently picked up a Red/Black DS Lite on craigslist. The system was in excellent condition with some wear on the top cover being the only blemish worth noting.

I sold it on Amazon and just received a complaint alleging that the system does not hold a charge, the L & R buttons are not working, and the serial number is missing from the back.

I played on this DS Lite shortly before sending it out. I confirmed that it does indeed hold a charge (played Phantom Hourglass for a bit and Pokemon), the serial number was on the back when I was cleaning the system, and the L & R buttons were working when I played Link to the Past.

The real kicker is that the craigslist seller e-mailed me pictures of the system. One of these pictures shows the serial number on the back (albeit with a thin black censor bar obscuring the actual numbers). Either way, it shows that there was indeed a serial number sticker when I sent it out.

I get the feeling that this person is trying to commit return fraud at my expense. I will attempt to get the unaltered picture of the serial number from the craigslist seller.

I just wanted to know if I should ask the customer to send it back first or dispute this issue with Amazon directly and bring it to their attention that this customer is trying to commit return fraud. I know the system is biased towards the buyer, but I caught her in a lie and I think I can BBQ this asshole's story with proof.

Thanks for any and all help. I will also post the offender's name and mailing address should it indeed be a case of return fraud.

^ You should always take your own pictures of stuff like that.

I haven't had many issues lately but then again I'm not selling that much any more. But I did have something a few weeks back that I thought for sure I'd have to count as a loss: a chargeback from a buyer in Mexico that just paid for cheap first-class shipping (so no tracking once it went past LA). Much to my surprise, PayPal covered the chargeback. So, yeah, that was a pleasant surprise. Apparently the first-class tracking number (which is just the Customs number, really) is sufficient now. That didn't used to be the case as I lost out on a few International shipments in the past because they weren't Priority Mail (with full tracking showing delivery).

The chargeback was for "unauthorized" purchase and I never heard a word from the buyer via email or eBay.

I usually do, but the DS Lite wasn't all that expensive of an item ($50+). I've sold items well above that so I didn't really give it a second thought. I'm going to hold onto the serial number picture until I absolutely have to. I'm probably going to ask her to return it first (the broken DS Lite) so she can't possibly switch the serial number sticker or anything.

The bitch that was trying to scam me for a DS Lite appears to have dropped her case. The return I initiated is still open, but she has not contacted me in over 2 weeks. I'm hoping the return is dropped completely. I'm just surprised people try this shit, and Amazon allows it.
