I disagree. I would never scam someone online or in real life. My word is stronger than steel when I give it.

For the sake of his own good I really hope the stuff is coming this week...

Give him a call with the following message

 

'I know who you are. I know what you want. If you are looking to pull a fast one on me, I can tell you I don't have any. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you return my item(s) now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will -insert text- you.'

 

Here's hoping that everyone's items came back safely!

So far everyone else was TAKEN.

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky?

I'll be happy just to get my earphones and not ever have to deal with this person ever again.

 

You know its kind of pathetic, but now I'll go looking through the classified ads here, and see someone selling something who has no feedback, or a low post count. . .and each time I see that, I can't help but wonder if its him again, using a different ID.

 

It's sad. Who can you trust anymore?


Sad. I have no reputation in this forum and trying to buy something is quite hard too~

(I think my post count is low too, as I kinda lurk around and check for information rather that contribute as my knowledge is still limited about IEM stuff)

Yes, this is going to be something of an issue with the trading system on Head-Fi for at least awhile, I suppose. It's a bummer for traders with low post counts like myself; we're going to have to work doubly hard to prove that we're not out to scam people. But of course, I can't blame anyone for feeling that way - after all, the trust system was broken once, and it could be broken again.

 

Hope you guys get all your items back, safe & sound.

Third Party holding of items to be traded.

Hi all just want to say its disgusting the way this has gone down and i feel truly sorry for the victims of this ******.

I used to be a member on Replica watch forums and these guys (including the mods) played hard and fast with people like this.  There is a thread there if you can find it where something very similar happened and the basically gang smashed the guy.  They full on exposed everything they could about him and from what it seems straight up destroyed his life using just their keyboards.  A good read if you can find it although i dont advocate anyone doing anything that will get themselves into trouble. So a word of warning to the scammer to just man up get the stuff back and move on,

I have given quite a few new members or no feedback members a chance and never encountered any problems. I always trade the way I described above in that case though: bank transfer only. And I make sure to give them feedback so their count goes up.

 

I also received many questions, usually for the more expensive items from completely new members who just joined in the last few days. Quite often as soon as I tell them it's bank transfer only I don't hear back from them anymore. Maybe that's a good way to filter?

Was that the one where they locked themselves up in a supermarket? I've been trying to find that one back for ages.
