    An Ebayer to watch

    The following Ebay seller is someone to watch. I bought five lens boards for my camera and sent payment via Postal Money Order. The lens boards were not shipped and when I questioned him he responded with the vilest most vulgar email that I have ever received.

    Oaklanlenscom.

    The sellers
    <name removed by jd callow> located in Auburn Hills Mi. 48336.

    Deal with this person only at your own peril.

    I just received a 77mm filter from him, after a bit of emailing and a month of waiting.

    Hmmm.... Postal Money Order. That makes it a postal offense - big problem for him. Time to get the Postmaster involved.

    That's a worry, I'm waiting for a yellow Aero-Ektar filter from him. It was only $15, but I want the filter! As it is coming via regular mail I've got no real recourse if it doesn't show.

    Paul,

    If you paid by credit card then try contacting your provider. I'm doing this with Mastercard over a "goods not turning up" situation with another vendor; early days, but they're assuring me I'll get my money back.

    (Hope your filter turns up, though!)

    Best regards,

    Frank

    hey, we have quite a few members in the Detroit area, maybe they can form a posse and go give that guy an attitude adjustment for Donald!

    Donald, Robert is correct. Since you used a postal money order, it has become a federal issue. Contact your local postal inspector and start the ball rolling. It might take a while, but the feds are always slow and thorough. If it is a simple case of fraud, you can have a large piece of his a$$ for fun and he will wish he had never been rude or greedy. Sorry to hear about the problem. Chin up buddy. tim

    There are some creeps selling on ebay who try to get away with not sending stuff in the hope that the buyer will do nothing. However there are some things you can do to make life difficult for him.
    I had a situation once where a guy in America wouldn't send something to me in Australia. I found that ebay isn't really set up to protect the buyer & they don't make it easy, I had to search around a lot, but finally I discovered some form they have where you can report someone as a "non conforming seller". After I did this a few days later he suddenly decided to send me the 45 after all.
    So I suggest you do this as well as the postal thing.
