    scammed

    by nightriderelectronics.com
    read ebay feedback from him and he seemed legit with good feedback ratings. ordered a car computer for 330 bucks on june 20th never got it. kept emailing him and he emailed me back periodically giving me new ship dates. filed a complaint with paypal (that's how i paid) and they ruled in my favor, but he has no funds in his account to reimburst me, so i don't think they can do anything unless he adds more money. from the email:
    "After careful review, we have concluded our investigation of the Buyer
    Complaint described below.

    We have decided in your favor, however, we were unable to recover any funds
    from the seller's account. As stated in the PayPal User Agreement, recovery
    of funds associated with a Buyer Complaint cannot be guaranteed.

    We will make our best effort to recover the funds in question if they
    become available in the seller's account in the future. Please be assured
    that we will also take appropriate action against the seller's account,
    which may include limitation of the seller's account privileges."

    Damn that sucks, something similar is happening to me atm, I bought 240$ of musical instrument stuff from music123.com , they havent shipped my order yet and wont reply to my 3 emails (they have a 48 hour email responding policy) I dont want to call them since its long distance.... And shipping was freaking expensive , 9$ for some picks(pick cost 2.44$) , more than 20$ for a stompbox.... And they say they dont bill till they ship. Did billed my credit card two days after I made my order...
    Edit: Btw I made my order more than 2 weeks ago. (for a company its not normal to not respond to emails). Before I placed my orders I asked them lots of questions by email(4 emails maybe) they answered within hours....

    Btw : I feel your anger. You should contact someone you know that is good in the law (since you have is information) like a lawyer.

    i bought from him before. he took 2 weeks to ship it cuz he had to get the parts to put in it. anyway i spent near 400 bucks with him and i got it. you should have just built a custom one yourself anyway. i ended up selling the damn pos hp. lol. i lost money on it but im much happier with my new setup.

    DId you use a real credit card? If so, just do a chargeback. If not, lesson learned, allows use a real credit card with eBay.

    i used a check card as a credit card, so im not exactly sure that is the same thing. i have to look into a lot of things.

    i just went to his website, and it looks like it has been suspended for whatever reason. seems like he didn't pay the bills. appreciate the feedback and welcome more ideas.

    If it has a visa or mc logo on it, same rules apply. Try contacting the card services peeps...
    Good luck, hope you get the sonuva*****.
