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
Address: VT19 BT6, Xa La, Ha Dong, Hanoi
Emails: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.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?
Was it through paypal? Can you file a dispute?
How long has he been silent for? days, weeks, months?
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.
What does eBay say about the matter ?.
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?
