It seems clearly obvious to me that the seller in this case has ran and hid in the darkness and does not seem to be willing to take responsibility, at least that is how it appears at this point.

I certainly hope that the seller comes clean and pays up. There is NO realistic or acceptable argument, insurance or not. NO ONE in their right mind would ever ship a valuable item that clearly said " I AM A $500.00 GFX card, STEAL ME" I have doubts the card was ever in the package, or that the tracking bill is actually real. Hmmm I can mail a brick to a false address with a postal code and get a receipt for it.

This entire situation really stinks and has certainly taught me a lesson.

I will never buy online from a newbie to the fourm. When something sounds to good to be true...

Well there is also no evidence that the second card has ever been sold. No one coming to her defence saying their deal went well.... Perhaps she can just give the other card to him as a replacement? Well? Huh?

His credit card company should not have to foot the bill on this one. If you do be sure to give your credit company every detail about who this individual is, they may very well go after her/affect her credit. That is of course they even provided you with real information.

There is something not right with the seller of these alleged "3870 x2s".

I think a mod or admin should just take this thread down...


My personal experience with this person by PM is that they avoided
anyway possible to be present with the buyer (meet the buyer).

This was evident when the seller stated that they will be "coming down
to Toronto on the week of the thread" and I asked them, if a pick up
was possible; she/he replied "they had a sudden change in schedule".

I'm sure some others would have even asked about local pickup...

That's my $0.02

I asked for her to ship first, but she said that she couldn't trust me, even if I have 100% ebay, itrader and Heatware feedback.

So far, she looks like a scammer.

I have read this thread and my conclusion is the same as others. Things just don't seem right.

If there are any updates regarding this situation then I would invite any of the people DIRECTLY involved to PM me so I can update the thread accordingly. The user responsible for creating this situation will NOT be banned so he / she is free to message members who were involved.

Hopefully you will all see why the rules MUST be respected.
