So bought a set of forks from Pinkbike and paid 'good' and swallowed the fees, bloody glad I did, the guy can't even write hos name in the ground with a stick so what are the chances he's sent them to the right address ?

Hi, of you're willing to ship to France I'll take the forks.

Ok I'll not mess you around, I'm bidding on the pair of the same forks, if they go for less than 200 notes I'll get those if they go for more I'll take yours. As soon as the bidding ends I'll let you know one way or the other. If you get any other interest don't wait for me.

Cheers

Ok I'll take the forks for 220 posted, just a couple of questions, do they still have the compression adjust knob on the bottom left leg ? And do you fancy chucking the stem in ? What's your Paypal address and when you send them I'll need the tracking number

Cheers

More than fair, I appreciate times are tight but alarm bells start ringing for me as soon as a seller says they won't send the item until they've got your money out of PayPal into their bank account. In my opinion you shouldn't list something for sale via postage unless you can fund that postage immediately upon receipt of the paypal payment. Clearly avoiding/ignoring requests for a tracking number simply isn't on and only adds weight to my suspicions. I wouldn't bother waiting any longer mate, if it looks and smells like a turd it's almost always a turd!

Withdrawals to a bank account from paypal are now free and take half an hour.

Yep, definitely fair, I won't use Paypal gift anymore, not worth the risk when you get cretins like this.

Did you manage to get your money back?

I've paid for a frame on pinkbike and been waiting nearly two weeks now. Paid as goods.
the guys been messing me around and says that it was sent by a mate that he can't get hold of
to get the tracking number.

Quick google of his email address
belem241@googlemail.com
and found this thread!!

It was a lot of money too!

Open a paypal dispute Salter. You only have a limited time to do this. If you paid goods you should get your money back.

Ive just done it now. Paypal says he has to the end of may to sort it out. I've got a load of screen grabs too of his old accounts (found two other accounts belem149 and belem241 both banned for scams), the ad, this forum and our PM's.

Wish I had done my research first, but I've always been a person who likes to give people benefit of the doubt.

You're already giving people the benefit of the doubt by sending off your hard earned into web world. Might as well take precautions...
