Exclamation How to block a scammer " shootstar_007" on ebay

I have just posted this in the 1:200 for sale section, however it is necessary that I post it here as well

Firstly you all need to be warned of this scammer who bids on your item, wins the item, then sends you a fake Paypal screen shot saying payment has been made then emails you saying it's ok to ship. Yes that's right from him not Paypal. That should be your first warning. I did not ship until notified from Paypal that it was ok to ship, but that was four days after he withdrew funds for the purchase, after he sent the Paypal money sent screen shot. By that time Paypal deducted funds from his bank and money for the transaction did finally land in my account. Then he also claimed the he paid priority paid on the shipping which was also a lie, on the very next ebay message. That was also to get the model shipped without paying for it. He choose & paid for standard shipping. Despite my many concerns that I notified ebay supervisors of his fraudulent activities on his daily email messages, so there was notes and problem log numbers on file as I new he was going to leave negative feed back anyway.

If you are an ebay seller this is what you need to do. If this ebayer ever list to sell do not even consider it.

To block a buyer like shootstar_007 from bidding on your listings you need to click on your account tab on the left hand side. Then you need to scroll down to Site preferences, then you need to find "Buyers requirements" Then look for "Block buyers" and hit the "show" link on the right hand side. Then you can add this mug shootstar_007 to your list. If you haven't got any blocked buyers yet, this ebayer should be your first. Try to follow my steps. If not use the ebay help section.

I also followed his request to tick as a gift and have a value of $10.00 dollars to avoid him paying tax, and I have had that request before over the years and done so for ebay buyers. That is the last time I will be doing that. In future I will be putting the full purchase price on the shipping declarations. If there would be any future fraudsters I will know they paid their correct tax and received the goods in good order because they paid the tax. They would refuse to pay it if the box was crushed beyond recognition right! (another lesson I recently learned)

Also you might like to know that this former DAC member Karun83 and his other six profiles (yes that's right 7 profiles in total) AKA shootstar_007 have been deleted and he has been banned for life from the DAC forum.

Good luck and thanks for reading

Sad that we have such people in the world.

Just one correction: You said "shipping decorations." I assume that should have read "shipping declarations?

Terrible. What's wrong with people? I bought a very desired model on ebay a few weeks ago and now the seller has canceled the order out of the blue. No reason, no communication, I just got a notice from eBay saying its been canceled. I think the seller got sellers remorse or didn't get as much money as he thought and now he's screwing me. I'll lodge a complaint with eBay. Seller is in Canada.

I forgot to thank the administrator Lou for his time and efforts, who investigated my request to check out this individual for this matter and found all the profiles and of this former DAC member and deleted them all and bared this individual for breach of forum rules for life. I had a gut feeling after what happened to me. This will not stop him for searching the 1:200 for sale section, so you should be aware but if you follow my lead above on how to block this ebayer that will help you save a whole lot of grief.

Thanks

Can you post a link to the sale?
There might be someone on here who can help out.

As fellow collectors we shoudl stand together to stamp out these types of practices.

1) If you bid on a mondel, you pay for it as soon as you win it.
2) If you sell a model and start at a low bid price, then you conclude the transaction, it is the way it works. Otherwise put the starting price you really want.
3) Don't screw fellow collectors like shootstar_007 tried to do.

That is what a community like this should be for. To help fellow collectors to avoid shysters like these.

Here is the link to the ebay transaction. As requested






1:200 ANA BOEING 777-300 STAR WARS BB-8 JA789A



I already listed it for $200.00 less than the official ANA model purchase price I paid for it when, I learned diecast versions where becoming available. To top off my loss which I already accepted, I get someone like this purchases my model. For Pete's sake. This is the feedback left by this ebayer member


Extremely bad packaging. Received model box fully crushed. BAD!!Buyer: Member id shootstar_007 ( Feedback Score Of 130)
During past month

  • Reply by qf747sp (15-Apr-17 23:08):

    Not only are you a scammer, you are also a liar. All sellers need to block you.

1:200 ANA BOEING 777-300 STAR WARS BB-8 JA789A (#262901318350)AU $139.00

Thanks for the heads up, not that I'm likely to ever sell any of my models (except for maybe one) or buy through the likes of ebay etc. Gee... some people out there!!!

won't get much joy I am afraid!! had the same thing happen to me when I won an auction fair and square. it was a rare 1/72 executive models BOAC COMET 1. a holy grail. only 50 made and came with numbered plaque. 38 out of 50. it was £155 + £10 post, and paid straight away. next thing I knew he re-listed same model. I was like wtf?? so I contacted him and he said it did not sell for enough?? said it was worth more and listing should have had a reserve on it. but it didn't. he then refunded my money. so I rang ebay and complained, but they said there is nothing they can do. they cannot physically go round his house and make him send it!!! yet if you win a model you are legally bound to pay for it!

a while later I had a message from seller that he had it 'professionally ' valued. and it was £600. and it had no box!!

the following year at the Gatwick show where I shared a table with another member as I had a few models to sell. whilst setting up I spotted ANOTHER one on someone else's table. so I went over and managed to get it for £150!! before show opened! (a lot of inter trading goes on before these shows open!!). so I managed to get one in the end in mint condition and save £15!

It's terrible to learn that. As far as I can remember Karun83 was one of active members in this forum in the past and I ever had some private communication with him about model trading before. He owns lots of rare models and didn't hesitate to acquire what he likes. Thanks for heads-up and I'm sorry for your bad experience Steve.

It is very strange for someone who registered in April 2017 to get involved so deeply in one specific transaction.

Strangely, for someone in the Tech Sector they don't appear to have a LinkedIn account.
Anaya Daisy from UK (Bristol)?

No Facebook Profile?

Forgive us for being skeptical about your credentials.
I'm sure an enquiry to PayPal will clear this whole matter up easily.

You going to create any more prfiles Mr s*hitstar? This only proves more about you don't worry all your IP address are being monitored and more resources are coming online for administrators.

If only you could hear the flush of a toilet and you going down it on this forum. Bye Bye

Well you know your all your IP address right s*hitstar_007 bye bye super fraud star I am sure everything about you endorses why people need to block you, That includes ebay shops you purchased and from all of them like Waffles Collectables and we are warning them all. Let the battle begin. Even when you create new ones they will be closed down as you are banned permanently.

What we call learn of this folks is: Take good pictures of the packaging you send the models in as well. It would then have been very easy to dismiss the claims made by Karun83 (via anaya2014 who in all likelyhood might have been a clone).

Oh. And don't get involved in a mud slinging match. Both parties kinda gets dirty in the process. Stick to the facts and it might be advisable to ignore personal insults and just report the member.

I want to make sure I understand this. Karun asked Brad to make him that lovely Indian Dornier (I clearly remember the photos) and then stiffed him with it? That's a 10 on straying over the line meter.
