shaddy, i made a deal w/ him for a good price on a box outside of ebay to help him out on the tax & bring the price for me down... BIG MISTAKE. its been over two months & i havent received my box. he said UPS sent his shipments to the wrong people & that some guy that received my box would ship it to me. now ive just told him to credit my payment back to my paypal account & he hasnt responded to me in two weeks. sorry if any of you know him... but hes shaddy. not to mention his 50 bid auctions.

should i just file a "did not recieve my item" claim through paypal? maybe some of you have already gone through this. any help would be appreciated. i just really wish i would have done the tranaction through ebay so i could at least write bad feedback... so instead i come to Boomboxery :-D

File with paypal ASAP! They might not help you though. If he had an ebay auction # for this exact boombox even though you delt with him on the side, use that auction # in your claim. It might help.

Dude, I hate that for you. I guess you missed this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9358

He's also a member here and uses the same name. See if you can get him by PM before his account disappears.

i saw that thread about him but that thread was started in march & i bought the box from him in early Feb & the price on biding wasnt an issue. it was a real nice fully functional panasonic rx-5600 for $100. is this guy that hurt that he cant credit me back a benji? seems to be making plenty off his 40 bid auctions. he wont respond for two weeks & then he will he will write back every now & then "oh weird i wasnt getting your messages, anyways im waiting for a tracking number from the guy who accidently received your box."

when i file a dispute paypal states this "We're sorry, but this transaction cannot be disputed because it is not a purchase of goods or services. Please contact the recipient directly" huh??

should i just file a "unathorized transaction" on my paypal... or is that shaddy on my part?

how about he keeps my $100 & and all of you on here never support his ebay business? even trade, karma is a bitch :lol:

Exactly! And you know there is absolute NO WAY he can prove he sent it to someone else. I guarantee you this POS doesn't have a UPS / USPS / FedEx tracking number for it.

Paypal will not cover person to person transactions. They will lock your claim and tell you to deal with the person directly.


Example I had:

Craigslist seller was selling NEW take-off rims and tires. One picture of one wheel. Looked great.

We couldn't figure out a time/day that we could meet up.

A buddy of his had the wheels at his shop. I said I will be around the area and if he wants to leave them outside I will pay via paypal and just pick up the wheels when I drive through.

Paid $1,000 via paypal

I show up at this shop late and the wheels are outside luckily. Tires are 1/2 tread and the wheels are nicked up and a little curbed/scratched. Not even close to "NEW take-offs".

Well, I have to take them with me because there is no one around and the guy has my money in his paypal.

I told him to refund the money and I would take the wheels back to that shop.

Guy won't respond to emails anymore, phone disconnected, and he moved seriously in like 2 days after I got these.

Paypal said to me exactly what they said to you..... :-/


Still have the wheels/tires on my truck:

When you pay via paypal, you have the option of selecting goods, services, gift, money owed -- etc.

Goods is the only method where they can help you. But if you select one of the other choices, then you are in trouble -- doesn't matter if it's for goods or not, if you select any other option, then that becomes a problem. Now, if he sent you a bill / invoice, then you might lose the ability to choose.

My recommendation: If you paid via credit card -- go contact them and file a claim that way. Paypal has a 45 day limit to file a claim. I'm sorry to say but if you've eclipsed 45 days, your window for claims is gone ane paypal will not help you. But your credit card vendor will.

There is another way of getting back at him but I don't think that appropriate to discuss on a public forum ;-)

Well, just understand that it seems his JVC has sold 4 or 5 times already. Each time, the description becomes more and more vague so if you need to resort to feedback, it might be due to real reasons for the current transaction.

Makes me think people are bidding to themselves, with fake accounts, so that they can raise their feedback and prove that they have sold high-dollar items.

As for Bentleys, no thanks.......Those cars are too big & heavy, and their image has been ruined by their customer base.

superduper, i cant post feedback on his ebay account because we made the transaction outside of ebay, thats the frustrating part. & now of course after i sent him a nasty email through ebay he finally responds, saying that hes responded to all my messages & that i must not check my spam folder... i dont know how other people ebay accounts are, but mine doesnt have a spam folder. now he's telling me to leave him alone because he believes the box was delivered to me but cant provide a tracking number or any type of shipping information.

what a headache :annoyed:

Makes me want to punch him right in the DICK!


I will email him through his auctions about your boombox. What did you buy from him, was it a panasonic rx-5600?


PS, I just emailed him:
When are you going to send my friend his panasonic rx-5600 he paid you for? If you aren't going to ship it then refund his money. I would suggest taking care of this issue quickly. Thanks.

You bought 3 boombox straps from me, and you paid like you said you would. The thing that bothers me is your auctions and now where your money has been coming from. It seems that you rip other people off on items by not sending them anything they paid for or you have some crazy amount of high bids on your auctions FROM THE SAME PERSON!

When are you going to send my friend his panasonic rx-5600 he paid you for? If you aren't going to ship it then refund his money. I would suggest taking care of this issue quickly. Thanks.

Well, I always thought that it was merely a matter of time before somebody gets ripped off by him. Like I said, when someone conducts their life in an unscruplous manner, that behaviour often carries over into other areas too so it's no suprise that this has happened. Either a person is trustworthy or not, and there is usually no in-between.

It really sickens me to hear stories like this. Money is hard enough to come by then you have to deal with blatant rip-off artists like this Bentley guy...I really hope you have a positive outcome on this one...good luck.

my last message to him i asked for the shipping info(tracking #) & this is his response...

"Your item was shipped by 71spud. If you have any issues with your item contact J*** M***** at J*****@charter.net . He says his wife shipped it out!!! There was no problem refunding you if item had not been reshipped by them."

my response:
"So its my responsiblity to track down some random person to get my box?... Isnt that your responsibility? You're the seller/sender, im the buyer/reciever."

I got my reply too via PM here on Boomboxery!:


"SMALL WORLD!!!!! Thanks for contacting me about those JVC straps you sold me. Im actually glad you took time to contact me!! You see those straps you sell. Well you used the template for them from another friend of yours.... Joel Mxxxx!!! Ring a bell???? How funny it is that he is the one who received your other friends Panasonic by mistake and says his wife sent it off!!! Now your friend that paid for it is saying he never received it!!! So you three know each other!!! Doesn't take a rocket scientist. By the way those straps are not strong enough for JVC boomboxes. They will break. Make them with stronger materials. TOO THIN!!! And all three of you live in Wisconsin. I have brothers and cousins there. How nice!!!!"



So he is saying he mailed it to Spud instead of Swanson who actually paid for it! He thinks we are all in on this deal and he is getting the shaft :lol: . He is funny.



PS - my straps are all heavyweight poly, it doesn't get stronger than that! Prove that they will break then. I have a M70 that I did personal strength tests with on these straps. What a dill hole.

What a idiot.

Regardless of where he thinks he sent an item, have any of you sent someone elses ebay item to a different customer of yours?

Sheesh, I hope I don't mail Spuds 30 boombox straps to skippy by accident :dunce: .


Is he banned from the site yet?
