:angry:

Alex Hymer in Flint?
Purchased from him 10 days ago on Gumtree.
Sent payment via PayPal. Had no response to several messages and no Subbuteo.

Anyone know this guy?

Just opened a case against.

I also purchased a joblot from him10 days ago on Gumtree. I get the feeling now it was the same lot as you and we've been scammed.

Like you paid through paypal but had no items or responses to my messages. He wanted to be paid via the 'friends and family ' option on paypal. I assumed to save the fees which i didnt have a problem with so i obliged.

I am relatively new to Gumtree so I dont know what protection buyers have compared to ebay for example. How have you opened a case Ramfan?

Cheers Gary.

See if anyone else has come across him. Might be worth involving the police if he's doing this regularly.

Sounds weird, but do you have the picture he used for these job lots and how much he was asking? Just in case he uses a different name we know what to look out for.

Had some bloke tried to sell me an old Munich set but I goggled the set and "his" exact picture came up on a foreign eBay site. Cut him off straight away!

If you sent money through friends and family option, i assume you get no protection. Is this the case? As friends and family is saying you know the person and i guess sending money as a gift, rather than making a purchase from a stranger, which paypal charge fees on, and probably set aside a certain % of these fees to pay out on disputes.

Hi James,

Absolutely correct. Paid friends and family in good faith...
It’s a chance I won’t be taking again.
Both paypal and Gumtree are sympathetic but unwilling to compensate. They have assured me however that Alex will be shut down but guess he will just reappear in the future under a different guise?
I do have the option of reporting this to the fraud department......
