Unhappy Beware of an ebay bidder who bids and does not pay

[SIZE="5"] Beware of an ebay bidder who bids and does not pay
I have my 1/400 collection for sale, part of it on ebay and there is an ebay bidder trey12345-12 who bids and does not answer when you email or communicate, I have to wait until ebay can investigate so I am letting other users know of this person to watch out for.
He is a 0 bidder new and just bids but does not pay or communicate. It would not be so bad if he at least answered an email but nothing just wasted time. He is from Georgia, in the US.[/SIZE]

Thanks miowname. I have added that ebay person to my blocked bidder list. There seems to be a lot of this going on at ebay these days.

Noticed it myself as I had to place claims for unpaid buyers which I never really had to do before.

If he fails to pay after about a week, open a non-payment case in the E.Bay resolution centre. That way E.Bay will be aware there is an issue and he is has to respond or it goes on his record and they will ban him if there is a pattern of this.

Seems to be a pattern lately. I have had probably at least 15 non paying cases lately. It getting old and there is hardly a recourse. They have to do it at least 3 times or more before ebay actually does anything about it.

Also beware of scammers who take possession of models for 44 days, then file a dispute with Paypal saying that their credit card was misused. Funny thing, the buyer's address on file here is the same address that Paypal has on file, so why didnt he just refuse the package? Because he is a SCAMMER!

It would be helpful if there is a thread in which list/update all bad ebayers (don't pay, open dispute as scammers...), then the members here who use eBay just copy and past it into blocking list.

Like this:

------------------

aala3970, clearsky4, trey12345_2012, maximinise, minimaxise, miniminise, (will be updated) .....

------------------

And I think that eBay should only allow the buyers give feedback to the sellers once they paid full for the items, to avoid many stupid stuffs happen: don't pay and then leave negative feedback to sellers (like a bad bidder from Singapore recently). Don't know if anyone will share this thinking.

If anybody has less then 20 feedback on my auctions i just cancel them, i dont take the risk, i know everybody needs to start somewhere, my wife just recently created her own ebay after using mine for years but when i first used ebay i had to build up feedback with cheaper items,

I have myself a nice list of blocked bidders as well but not necessarily from plane sales. just deadbeat in general.
