maybe you can help me on this scam.

Hi.

this isn't PB related, but it's in a legal place i think.

i bought a Radio from eBay, near october 30th, 2008, paid 60 bucks for it thru money order.

the guy who sold it to me didn't told me when he had shipped it to miami (everything that i order goes to miami, since i have someone that delivers it to me here in colombia) and i have no way of knowing when the package arrived.

after a week, my brother asks me to ask a tracking number for the package, but the guy tells me that he didn't have a tracking# since he shipped through USPS.

after a month of ordering, i ask again to the guy for a shipping comfirmation. he sends me this file

which basically tells me nothing. i ask my friend in miami if he has received something, he checks, but there is nothing (works in a shipping company).

i wrote to the guy this week, but he didn't answer, weird thing because he usually responded within 2 days max.

what can i do? should i report to ebay? should i call this guy? or what?

thanks, and please reply, most of my threads remain only with my post

It may or may not be a scam, might just be carelessness or perhaps ignorance (no offense) on both your and the seller's part.

Never buy anything off ebay without a tracking number, especially if you're using an overseas currier like mailboxes etc to get your stuff shipped elsewhere.

I'm inclined to say it's your currier, given the amount of issues i've had with curriers in the past. Check with them locally about the situation in miami. They'll likely ask for a tracking number but you must insist they check for your name on lost packages.

As it often happens, curriers lose packages because the package landed behind a shelf or something. Also, buyers or shippers often forget crucial details in the address like the recipient's currier ID number (i.e. you give a base address in miami but the currier knows which country and city it's going to because of a special number).

basically this is a very different courier. it only ships to colombia, and when a package for me or my mother arrives, he calls us and verifies that we indeed ordered the package, and notifies us when he sent the package. it's very cool actually, i'm expecting my marker to arrive this week, even though i ordered it through amazon.com dec 25, arrived jan 2nd, and my friend was in vacations, so he just got informed that a pacakge had arrived "for him" (i have to send the packages on his behalf, so they know for who it is, and he then sends it) something like this had never happened. but i'm also inclined to think that it got returned because the package wasn't sent to my friend, but to my brother who doesn't work in that company, and they may have thought that it was an incorrect package, but my friend already knew that the package was not on his name.

sorry for not using paragraphs

Well if you trust the currier and the seller claims the package was received by them, then it basically comes down to the currier either has it or it doesn't.

I'd wait until the end of the month, insist on the currier to look for it and if nothing turn up then yeah, report them to ebay and paypal because that sheet they sent you proves nothing without a signature, given it was an insured package.

Saludos.

I think you should just ask for your $$$$ back and if he doesnt respod or refuses to give your $$$$ back leave a report him then leave him a negative review.

hope this helps

btw when ordering off ebay always check the sellers rating. if its 96 or lower dont order of them

that will scare him leave him a bad report how about prosecute him for mail fraud and also if you don't deal with pay pal or some other way besides money order then you will more likely lose your money

it should scare him because a bad report can hurt his rep and make him lose potential buyers.
really think things over before you say them
