I'm being scammed by "New World Archive" on Amazon. Sure enough, there are plenty of blogs discussing the same exact incident as mine. Here's a link to one:

http://www.pazzobook...chive-unveiled/

New World Archive tends to ask for a lot of refunds and often claims they never received an item. They asked me for a refund and then sent back a different book then the one I sent them. It's the same title, but it's not the same book. I sent them a new book and they sent me back a severely damaged book. The only reason I know it's not mine is the sticker residue that was never on my book.

Apparently, they buy lots of books from half.com and amazon.com and resell them on Amazon Canada. Sure enough, the book they bought off me for $40, they are selling on Amazon Canada for $200 under the alias "Vanderbilt_ca" mentioned in the blog link I posted.

It's a pretty interesting business they've made. They've taken the idea of "flipping" and applied it to a large scale business generating thousands of dollars a day. I just don't like how they are pretty much committing return fraud on me, a grad student selling his old college books so that I can buy new ones.

They actually bought a book off of me a couple of years ago and I never heard a complaint from them. I guess they decided not to commit return fraud that time.

If anyone has any advice for me, I'd greatly appreciate it.

An individual from New Canaan, Connecticut is probably going to try this stunt with me on the Amazon marketplace. They ordered a GameCube title that was brand new, y-folded perfectly and thoroughly described. I get a 4/5 feedback with all these lies it was unsealed and the disc was in a paper sleeve. I always shake the heck out of sealed stuff and nothing was loose like a sleeved disc. The sleeve is most suspect, especially since a USPS inspection would just mess it and eliminates that possibility.

They also admitted they've been scrounging GameStop for the game and have gone through multiple defective copies. Make the connection? They're probably gonna send me a used,defective unit from GS and retain the sealed copy I sent for a full refund. I just have to wait for the charge-back in about a month. I'll edit this post with their info if it comes to fruition.

Good luck, everybody.

Well, less than a month later and I have a new potential scammer. I'm still waiting for the charge-back on the previous one and this malarkey rolls in.

I get a message reading the the buyer "received 1 cd from this series that is damaged."

Well, there are twenty DVDs in the TV series boxset I sent, genius. Thanks for being so descriptive. The item was brand new, sealed, and I actually had to take it out of its manufacturer's cardboard shipment box. It had no floaters, and I've handled three other copies and personally own one without any incidents.

I know boxsets occasionally get botched, but the thing that gets me is Amazon sent me the message, like the person tried to file a claim less than a week after making the order without ever contacting me. They got the item in three days FYI. It sounds like a fledgling shyster. I think they bought some individual discs from a season boxset at a closing BlockBuster; they were thinking they could somehow gyp the series boxset for free, as strange as that sounds, or fill out their collection and send the remnants back. I will update when I hear more, and post their info if they gyp me. They haven't responded to how and which disc was damaged. The item was insured if it turns out it was damaged in transit.


Edit: Yup, I was right. Told them I would refund them totally and pay for the return shipping and the box after they destroyed the parcel box it was shipped in. Had an A-Z claim waiting for me tonight. I let loose in the representation message and called it fraud, because they want to keep the boxset and get a full refund. I don't know if the buyer sees it, but I hope they enjoy. Their name will be posted once I lose the case or get back the box with whatever dud she shoves in. It's annoying Amazon will let this slide through.

A-Z claim message: customer wants to return this but she does not have box it was shipped in and this item is damaged and wants a refund, customer has tried to tell to seller that this series the first four disk skips and she even tried a different dvd player and same issues

It appears the rep who filed the claim was not proficient in English. Ridiculous beyond words. She has been cajoling the reps to refund her, with simple misspelled messages when she is quite articulate it appears. She never actually identified the discs that were broken/defective in any form and the rep assumed. I've e-mailed her six times, and was nice until the claim. I made sure to orchestrate the return, which she is playing dumb to wait out the claim and keep the item.

Edit 2: Well, the buyer agreed to send back the item and I paid return shipping plus handling since the last edit. I never got directly vicious beyond the A-Z defense and they dropped the claim when they were promised a complete refund again. I want to try to keep my feedback positive, even though it's gonna be a $22 direct hit on shipping alone with the broken unit returned. A restocking fee would just be asking for trouble knowing how this person is playing me.

I got the discs back already, and highly suspect it was a switcheroo to complete a defective set. They could only identify one disc that was messing up after everything. And it was troublesome during my playback inspection, with pure filth on the bottom of it. It was brand new when it was sent. Now, 19/20 Discs now have signs of being mishandled, with thick grease, prints, hairs, light scratches and dust upon them now. There are so many signs pointing the buyer was manipulating Amazon and knew the system. They knew I would bend under pressure. For instance, they acknowledged the A-Z claim would screw the seller metrics up and be a strike for me, something I never mentioned.

I will post the name soon, but I have a feeling it was a one-time swindle to get watchable discs for free. Also, they may have copied the discs, explaining all of the fingerprinting. There are dozens of possibilities, and the most innocent explanation appears to be the most distant.

Edit 3: The buyer's story did not check out, so I am posting the info below. The final verdict: at best, they overstated the problem to gain sympathy from Amazon to screw me on a refund. I could have sent a replacement disc from my personal copy (not brand new like the one sent, so, a moot point) for the one that was broken, but since they kept upping the story, it was ridiculous to even consider. They included a handwritten note that the first two discs were bad and they stopped using the DVDs, and they play quite fine of course. Though, 19/20 discs show signs of considerable use and wear.

Hypotheticals: The buyer either bought defective discs from somewhere else, broke their old copies, or intentionally defiled the one disc or some combination thereof. When they could not keep it, they copied the discs onto a computer or laptop, explaining the wear. They then may have replaced the discs from their duds and put them into the cases of my unit and returned it. I realize this explanation is beyond convoluted, but it is a very sophisticated deception.

W. Bennett (PM me for the first full name; I don't feel like having it come up in a search engine)
PO Box 638
Micanopy, FL 32667

The whole situation was ridiculous and could have been innocent to a point, but the multiple circumventions, the A-Z claim, the hesitance to return the item for free, and the peculiar condition of the discs returned speaks volumes.

For the record, the discs were not accidentally smudged like during a cleaning wipe-down, which can sometimes exacerbate the appearance of grease and would have been understandable, but not in this case; just the plain, uniform and leisurely mishandling of fifteen extra discs made very evident during inspection. I hit the hair and grease jackpot!

I'd call an Amazon rep for something like that; pretty much if you offer to take the return and pay for return shipping, the buyer has no grounds for an A to Z. Write on the claim that you're sending a return shipping box, that you offered a refund...so why is the buyer not cooperating by starting a premature A - Z? Sometimes with the right wording their claim will be denied...another trick is if you receive the returned item you can partial refund them and charge a 15-20% restocking fee.

Man, I'm reading through this thread and now realize I was the victim of 1 of these scams. For me it was a half.com book I sent to Hawaii. The buyer filed a complaint saying it was damaged (Dented). I was so pissed I added a comment to all my remaining books saying "No Dealers". If a dealer / drop shipper orders my book, I suddenly find myself unable to find the item. I have had 1 ass wipe leave negative feedback, and what sucks is you can't dispute the feedback on these transactions. I went so far as to add a block list to my half account. Another jackass claimed his book never arrived via Amazon, but I used the amazon shipping service which includes the tracking device, and that guy had his claim rejected.

I probably should return to trading and selling here, but, truthfully, a seller runs the risk of issues no matter the place.

Still feeling annoyed about the little switcheroo. It placed my account in a negative balance and Amazon would not take the money back until the scheduled date and it turned out I had an old card from 2011 in place for such debits and I have to wait until Halloween for them to deduct the money now. It's my fault for that obviously, but it's strange they would not let me give them the money ASAP.

Looking at the broken item annoys me to no end. Not counting the disc in question, the other eighteen discs would make me shudder if I considered them in 'good' condition by Amazon's criteria. Turned a hundred buck set into a paperweight.

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.

this I just got scooped....buyer bought Mass Effect 2 for PS3 back in March, and on Monday, May 31st, I was notified that the buyer filed for a chargeback.

I responded immediately to Half.com and asked them to look into my 100% positive satisfactory rating before making the decision, yet they decided to credit the buyer back, for $30 more than the price the seller paid for the item, is this even possible?

Is there any legal actions or complaints I can file?

The buyer's user name is darkhaloman89

and the address I shipped the item to was

Crystal Dawes
1231 evergreen drive
Nashville, NC 27856
USA

Thanks!

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 ...

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.

Like I said I will try and edit this and add more a little at a time, and post new ones as they come in. I verify by contacting other sellers that they have purchased from, the brando1943 is a bad one as 11 out of the 15 sellers that responded to me all said he tried to extort Partial Refunds out of them.

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?

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"

SPLASH!

Oh boy here we go I have about 12 more to add but don't feel like getting depressed going through all the hits I have taken lately.

These are Item Not Received As Described full refund without returning item, demand partial refund, or demand compensation above and beyond return shipping to return item for refund:

Prodigy_Networks (Amazon seller, they buy games on eBay complain for refund and then resell them on Amazon)

Prodigy Networks
12625 Frederick St
# 263 Ste I5
Moreno Valley CA 92553-5235
United States

brando1943

Paul Pecikonis
6100 Burk Ave
Ventnor City NJ 08406-1107
United States

These are purchase item and return different:

hunderkar1 (new username, known scammer)

thameena sarvath
2704 Erlene Dr
Apt 132
cincinnati OH 45238-2814
United States





Like I said I will try and edit this and add more a little at a time, and post new ones as they come in. I verify by contacting other sellers that they have purchased from, the brando1943 is a bad one as 11 out of the 15 sellers that responded to me all said he tried to extort Partial Refunds out of them.


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.

I know this topic is super old but...

How did that end up on here? I've sold tons of games to her in the past through eBay and Amazon without an issue. She would buy hard to find OOP stuff from me at a fair price and turn around and put them on Amazon for an outrageous price.

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.
