    Did I get ripped off?

    Does anyone know wy3134?

    I bought this computer and it doesn't work. I found that the cd drive and hard drive doesn't work so far. The computer was shipped with wires and mouse on top of the mother board with a sheet of bubble wrap placed on top.
    He was in good communication with me until the package was sold then no response to emails and pms. If anyone knows how I can get in touch with the seller please inform me. Thanks.

    yeah, thats the guy that was going off the other day making about 5 posts trying to see $75 worth of iTunes music store cards for full price.

    every single post he has made on these forums are either in the Classifieds section or the Off Topic section. Over 90% in the classifieds. He doesn't contribute anything to the car computer forums. He's just on here trying to peddle his goods.

    I did use paypal. I haven't report to though. I'm trying not to jump the gun and give this guy the benefit of the doubt. I'm not getting anyone standing up for him though.

    Find out his last post, was it after you sent the pm? Then he's ignoring you. Contact PP.
    Besides, contacting PP doesn't mean they'll agree with you, they'll contact him first, which will of course bring immediate response
    Good luck , let us know the outcome.

    Paypal won't do **** unless you bought it off off ebay. The only thing they will do is (maybe) refund your money if you haven't gotten the item. Otherwise, its not their problem.

    i was going to buy a few things off that guy (the subs and amp) but i didn't liek th price...thank god i didn't. I'm sorry man. Right now i have an issue that's my fault with the post office that i now have to make good on, thank god it won't cost metoo much, but its annoying when bad thigns happen. Sometimes, somethings are just too good to be true. Other times, things happen. If this guy uses the forums for sales and generally sells shoddy goods, then we got ourselves a problem.

    When ebay bought paypal, things became :P. Best hting to do is is repeat emails until they get sick of you and then request paypal freezes his account for inspection. Any and ALL cash in that account is untouchable for a whole half year, whihc is paypal policy and why i keep that account virutally empty. That should teach him a lesson or two if he has substantial funds in the account.

    He set up the sub/amp for sale thread after and added to a radar detector thread. He is ignoring me. I already filed through paypal. Hopefully he'll respond. As of now, I'm out of luck. Sucks.
