    Vicious part of me says: David has friends in many places, I'm sure if he doxxed the shipping addresses visits could be arranged. Fatalistic part of me heavy sighs and says this is why we can't have nice things.
    Alright, we'll call it a draw.

    I guess that it's a lot easier to David to ship before payment, when dealing with dozens / hundreds of sells at a time, but it creates situation like this.
    I would really encourage David not to send before having the money. And I think that this is absolutely fair. Most people do that, and there is no reason to get upset at that
    I agree. As a consumer, I am always willing to pay in order to have the goods sent to me. It seems to be the natural order of a purchase. Most do it that way here via PayPal F/F.

    Itís crazy how some folks are wired. I would never even think to have David ship without payment and then not pay. I havenít been lucky enough (or fast enough) to get something from these consignments, but if it suddenly showed up my first thought would be ďoh, I didnít even pay yet, where do I send paymentĒ. It may be a pain for him, but he needs to get money up front before sending product. That will keep these idiots from doing it again hopefully.

    Agreed. I have never had him ship me a thing without his cash first. AND I make sure I pay him so Horst get charged fees. Damm near 3% or more on all platforms AND this guy operates at a 15% margin. Plus his storage, packing materials and time. Losing this money hurts when your margins are that low.

    Occasionally Iíve shipped to other collectors that I donít know really well as an act of faith while waiting for payment. I havenít been burned and it really angers me that our brother David has. So save me a seat on the road trip, boys!

    You really have to be some sort of sociopath do that to someone. If karma exists, let it find them.

    But more so to a kind man. That's what pisses me off. Scam me. Cool, I get it. Don't scam him.

    Add davidmcdphotos on ebay to the list.

    On Aug 4th I won an auction for a 1/150 Colorado Kid and an ARC for it. The seller was from Canada but it indicated international shipping.

    Within a minute of winning the auction I went to pay for it and got an error that seller won't ship to Texas. The message indicated I could either change the address, or request a total from the seller. I tried to request the total but ebay said it could not send the message.

    So I used the contact seller button and told him that I got the error message, and he replied back that he was "absolutely prepared to ship to Texas" and asked that I contact CS. He also suggested that I pay directly to his paypal account, but I felt nervous about that. I then contacted CS. They said there was an error on his end, that he forgot to check some box (I don't know the details, since I have never sold on ebay). They told me to ask him to cancel the order and set up a buy it now action for me, but since I got it for a good price I was affaid he might try to just start another auction.

    I emailed him and suggested that I pay the paypal, but I still needed to know the shipping cost. He came back with a very hostile message. He claimed he called CS and they told him the error was on my end that I didn't set up my payment properly (It never got to payment, was still stuck on shipping address). He called me a deadbeat and a fraud and was going to video tape the packing so I couldn't claim it came damaged and . At this time the auction had ended only 9hrs earlier.

    I contacted CS again (this time via chat so I could have a log of the conversation). The said that all he needed to do was send me a "manual invoice". I replied back and asked why he was being so hostile and gave him the info from CS and included screenshots of the error messages and the CS chat log.

    He replied back the next night and apologized explaining he had been out of work for a year and others had scammed him. He said he would try to send the invoice in the morning (that would have been Aug 7). That is the last I heard of him. Sent a reminder about 3 days ago. Contacted CS again, and they just said I should cancel the item and look for another one.

    I even tried to do him a favor. Although I won two books, I was only interested in one, and only bid what I was willing to pay for that one book, so I told him he could keep the ARC since I don't collect them.

    So do you think I should cancel it, or just let it ride in case he finally responds?

    Not sure if you are using a mobile device, I have learned that some things can't be done unless you are in the full site and not the mobile version. Had the same issue trying to do some things on PayPal. Certain things were only avaliable on the full site

    After reading some FAQ's, sounds like only way is to contact seller and ask them to cancel. Seems stupid.

    I won an auction for the orange and yellow ďleather boundĒ version of The Stand, sold by keifo_65, on 9/22. I remembered seeing that if I bid on the item, shipping would be delayed, so I wasnít too concerned that it was taking awhile to ship. Two and a half weeks later, on 10/9, I was sent a refund.

    Since the seller had never contacted me once, I was irritated and sent a snarky comment about how Iíd at least be inclined to offer an explanation if I had to issue a buyer a refund. I got a reply that said, ďWell you got your money back. Piss off.Ē

    Now, sure, I probably opened myself up for that one...however, Iíd be more inclined - as a seller - to be a bit more professional. For a $21 purchase (that I DID get back), I wasnít screwed over or anything, but I thought Iíd throw the name out there so that everyoneís warned before dealing with this person. Personally, I prefer to treat buyers the way Iíd want to be treated.
