Another big clue this scammer is also lazy. If you click on the link for spare parts, it will take to another seller (original?) from which the scammer ripped the ad from.

Paypal Payment canceled!

I refreshed my Ebay summary page, and I noticed that now there is a note next to the auction I bid on it for the Falcon, it says, "THIS USER IS NO LONGER REGISTERED on EBAY"



I Immediately, CANCELED my PayPal payment. I would suggest everyone that ordered this thing, do the same immediately!

See the pic I posted. I just sent an email to the vendor through Ebay, notifying him what is happening with his listing and my payment. I also asked him to respond immediately with proof and assurance that his auction was for a legitimate item, and that I would be receiving what I paid for. Because, I can still "cancel' the PayPal payment while the payment remains as "Unclaimed" status. I told him I would do this unless he responds to immediately and assure me I will getting my heli.


Look at the transaction, if your payment is "unclaimed', there is "Cancel" button.next to the payment details.




I'm going to give him 24 hours to respond, If I don't hear from him, I will try to cancel at that point, Otherwise I will call PayPal.
Regarding to your screenshot:

It showed 199 sold...so 199*20 = 3980 USD!!!
And he had two listings.. so this bucks may be doubled...

I don't think he made off with anything because the PayPal payments were "unclaimed". It was easy to cancel payments made to him.

Looks to be the version that's missing the two trim knobs on the tx anyway.

Apparently this item was pulled too. What a shame that some people think they can get away with scamming like that.

Well it appears with the new year some people wanna make a fast buck by trying to rip us off, so I am going to implement a new rule in the thread.

All deals/posts from eBay must have AT LEAST 10 POSITIVE FEEDBACKS FROM MULTIPLE BUYERS, before you can list them in the thread.

If you want to buy an item with less than that 10 positive feedbacks, then its on you to take that risk, but please dont list it here.

Thank goodness ebay seems to be on top of it, and did a great job dealing with this.

Yep, I know some people don't like Ebay/PayPal, but they have a well developed infrastructure that provides redundant safety measures to protect buyers.

My payment went through on the 30th. I'll let you guy's know how cool it is when I get it. Sent a email to the seller and asked for a tracking number when they ship.

bulesz, last count I had was 207 between the 2 auctions. At $25.99AU each that's $5,379AU or $5,472US.

Yea, I noticed all the listings were removed - I sent a fraud alert to ebay earlier. I have no idea if it was related but the postings were pulled within a few hours.

Yea, there was no record of the auction anywhere in my-ebay after they removed the auctions so I logged into paypal and I have a transaction id # with payment on 12/30. I have the name of the person that the money was paid to also.
