Default Ebay buyer warning..sellers beware of a scammer

If you are a seller on ebay make note of buyer:


Moats-58 is his username

Jim Harrigan
3566 W 147th St
Cleveland, OH 44111
United States
also goes by the name Don Harrigan and now Kevin Hoffman

He has fraudulently purchased models from myself and other retailers on ebay.

He will purchase a model, and prior to shipping when the money is due he cancels and asks to back out of the sale. He will then contact the seller a week later and say he made a big mistake and for his error will pay 50% more and paypal the money immediately as acting in good faith. Once the model is sent he will cancel the sale dispute the charge, get the money back and keep the model. Please add him to your blocked bidder list.

he has just done the same with me on the new york air dc9 post below this

which i wont be doing instead ive added a tracking number and marked it as sent
hopefully paypal wont let him cancel

oddly enough he sent the payment by another name

Hi crownvic,

Thanks for posting this user's updated info.

Is he using an account which is registered in Germany now?

Username: moats-58

Member since: Aug-28-20 in Germany

https://www.ebay.com/fdbk/feedback_p...ts-58?limit=25

This is certainly a person that you don't want to deal with.

Odd, I cannot add him to my blocked list, either. But his member name is certainly valid. But he must've changed his location because it now states "Member since: Aug-28-20 in United States."

This same person almost tricked me again today!

But, I was able to ascertain exactly who is was, after messaging with his several times.

He has a yet another new eBay user name (registered in Germany, Since May 15, 2021) that I just now today discovered:

ny_532687

Please take necessary steps to avoid dealing with this person.

Hope that this info helps.
