    Beware of user c2future

    Beware of user c2future. The guy is a total fraud and crook. He sold me a camera and never sent it. He is:

    Name: An Van Le or Le Van An
    ID: 012620769
    Address: VT19 BT6, Xa La, Ha Dong, Hanoi
    Emails: an.le2804@gmail.com, an.lv2804@gmail.com, taurus2328@gmail.com
    Tel: +84 90 6280486

    Users like him soil the experience of useful forums like these.

    Can I take it that this was a sale on APUG? If so he must be a subscriber. Any details on the sale i.e. when made, what responses to your enquiries about where the camera was etc?

    I wonder how long a history on APUG he has and how many posts etc

    With hindsight was there a suspicious pattern?

    I think that other APUGers would appreciate some more details to help them.

    He was active as recently as 14th Sept this year but no posts or threads. I wonder what active means? I thought you had to be a subscriber to sell items and if you sell an item on APUG then doesn't this count as a post?

    Initial contact was made on APUG but eventual sale was made through eBay. To cut a long story short there was a lengthy discussion via email, SMS, watsapp including pics of the camera etc. but after payment was made, there was nothing but silence. I can see that my emails and messages are being read but no response.

    Just be careful if you post a WTBuy and get a response. My senses were lulled by too many successful purchases from honest people.

    Are there any APUG members who live in Hanoi who could pay him a visit?

    Initial attempts were through Paypal but that did not work so we dealt outside Paypal. His Paypal account(s) have now been frozen/shut down. He's been silent for weeks. He's been ignoring messages and emails. The past week I've tired direct phone calls but after a few days of trying it now seems his line has been disconnected. The signs are pretty clear.

    In the rare times "issues" occurred with PayPal I have stopped and cancelled the transaction right there. Serious red flag time.

    Did you also eventually work outside of eBay too?
