Watch Out for this guy on Ebay if selling Memory

This guy makes a living out scamming people on Ebay. If you send anything without tracking he'll pocket the product and then file claim. Here's the address to be be aware of : 70 McCullough Dr New Castle Delaware. Wing Biu Lau is an alias he uses especially when attempting to file a claim. # X7270 is the primary mailbox but others exists.

This address shows up as a freight forwarder. See: https://www.usa2georgia.com/suppo...address-be

I used to have issues with freight forwarding. You send a package, a 3rd party US intermediary handles it, then sends it overseas.
What's to stop the 3rd party from meddling with the package? (which is exactly what this guy is doing)
Sometimes he's the 3rd party buying on behalf, sends the item (along with others to ship freight) to the final/original buyer, but then 'double-dips' by claiming INR.
Other times, the overseas buyer is 'legit'. You can tell by their "special" secondary number (such as this guy's W4342 to avoid, but others use something else like U####).

However, eBay/PayPal changed their Seller Protection policies so that there are much less repercussions for selling to freight forwarders now.
Basically, they added this (from this page - http://pages.ebay.com/help/polici...tee.html):

* Not Covered: Items shipped to another address after original delivery.

Just have to prove you shipped to the "buyer's" US address (the freight forwarder), and then you can use this line above in a dispute which should close it relatively quickly Big Grin

I won the case based on the history of fraud from the person and location. Apparently he's gotten plenty of people in NY,CA & DE over the years.
The guys a master at getting 100% positive feedback via shill auctions and other people in on the scam and particularly from here for over 5 years. He looks for anything with free shipping and small items.

I've done this for a long time bought and received items with/without tracking insurance. Either way this guy wins. He'll pocket the item and then file a claim for the payment. I called Paypal out for even accepting accounts from this location for over 5 years.
Others got hammered a lot harder then me and I consider myself lucky to win.

I just sold a cpu to a company using that address - they have 285 positive transactions and 0 negative. carsman89645 is the eBay name but shipping address is to a company called AXLAO - it still says my finances see pending but will be available on the 9th, i won't be touching that money for a while

as long as it's not the same scammer's "unique" identifier for that address (think like a PO Box) you should be fine. thats scammer's identifier is W4342, so just avoid that for now.

His account carsman89645 was shut-down today thanks to my pursuit of him. That is the guy who nailed me. Did you use tracking? I will be working with the Newark DE police as well to really put the squeeze on him. My bet is your auction was cancelled as I know mine was but I got his money and he got my product and I surely won't be giving it back.

The ignorance and disregard of both Paypal and Ebay is shocking I'm thinking it's so bad the dollar amount over the years my be quite high and grounds for a lawsuit. They have known of him and this location for over 5 years and shocking they continued to allow the address be registered. May be enough people didn't stand-up.

If you PM the name in Paypal I will confirm but I'm pretty certain that's him. He messed with the wrong guy.

Nice job. Ive been on eBay since 1997 and went after a few total scam job people like this in the time since. Its a lot of phone calls and headaches for you and emails but you did a solid here. Good work. Its funny because 99 out of 100 transactions go easy, and then there's a scammer, targeting you because you're shipping 1st class or media mail or parcel select. Everything I do is USPS these days or UPS. I don't sell anything under $10 anymore, its my rule. I swear almost every transaction that has ever bitten me was for items less than $10 where I end up going after scammers.

They know if they scam on $5 products all day, a few hundred times over, they make out well. And almost every guy says - oh well it was a $5 memory stick. Whatever.

Nice job
