Silverwolf.....yes his negative comment feedbacks are getting buried as the crook is on a buying binge. I did just post a "Scammer alert" feedback today so it's back in view. I also have a second coin that he nailed me on but I have another week before my month is up. Rest assured that there'll be another "Scammer Alert" feedback for it as well so it should be in plain view for a little while. Hopefully this crook gets booted off ebay by then so let's all keep the pressure on!

Hey all, as we deal with mgreen3481, I just wanted to share details of another potential scam happening to me now. Ebayer canadian-bullion just claimed he hasn't received an item shipped on Oct. 26th, a $47.50 coin sent without tracking. I went to check his feedback but couldn't as he had chosen to keep it "private". Only buyers can designate as such & I didn't even know you could do that at all. It means you can't view any of that buyer's past feedbacks!! Going forward as I check feedbacks for all new buyers/bidders, I won't be shipping to folks who's feedbacks are designated "private".
Incidentally, this fellow didn't open a case but contacted me directly. That's appreciated in most circumstances but just adds to the doubt in this one. Ebay would have no clue how many "lost in mail" cases he actually has. His tracks are covered.
Last, not saying this buyer is dishonest. I'm only pointing out a possible scam & a methodology that a seller may not consider.
I've blocked him as canadian-bullion but his user i.d. when bidding comes up as 6476048cc & it can't be blocked for some reason. Not sure why ebay gives a double identity to anyone. Maybe because of private feedback but yet another reason why in future I won't be selling to folks with private feedback designations.

Here's a brief update for y'all ... The fraudster is still at it, although many of his recent victims are being notified before they ship, cancelling transactions and blocking him. Many defrauded sellers have stepped and supplied D/C Kwok with useful evidence and the D/C has gathered good data from eBay whose policy is to cooperate freely with law enforcement. Apparently, the folks at the men's shelter have also been helpful, so mgreen3481's days are numbered. Keep your "cards and letters' going to D/C Kwok ... 'tis the season for sharing after all! Be safe everyone.

Ask mods to change title to "arrested" or something different if and when this scum gets what he deserves.
There is no shortage of amazing lowlife in this world anymore.

Hey 1858myfav, thanks for the update on the mgreen3481 fraudster.
For any seller reading this, after you've blocked mgreen3481 please also block buyer canadian-bullion. I described him in an earlier note as having "private" feedback so you can't read anything about him.
He has just sent me a threatening note & I replied by advising him to open an ebay case against me. At least there can be some paper trail of this scammer for future victim sellers.
The m.o. is simple.....
1) "private" feedback so no visibility
2) Won't open an ebay case but threatens to leave nasty feedback if you don't refund him
Thanks to all for continuing to fight the good fight!!

That comes under feedback extortion rules I think and ebay is pretty strict on that one. Pick up the phone and have eBay read your messages on their end.

Thank you TNG for that info. I will follow-up. I did dialogue with ebay earlier but did not mention their extortion rules. Didn't know about them nor did they mention it when I advised that I had been threatened by the buyer to provide a refund without a case being opened.
Best they offered was to "open a file" on the buyer. Perhaps that's the max extent of things anyways.
I will follow-up & thanks again.

Just finished with ebay, they'll be doing a "direct escalation" with the buyer (canadian-bullion) due to his comments made to me. I won't be advised of what actions they'll take but if I get negative feedback they'll remove it.
Thanks again TNG!

Just a question ....If you get a Canada Post "solutions for small business account" you get tracking included in the parcel post rate (free) ......just gives you basic tracking but would that help ?

cdngmt....that does help but parcel rates are still well over $10 dollars. Hard to justify that expense when shp'g under $50 dollar items.
I use Chit Chat's for anything over about $40 dollars going to the USA. They provide tracking for about $5-6 dollars. If Canada Post had that type of rate for domestic tracking then it would sure simplify things.

Dear all, thanks for the topic and all of the efforts to restore the justice.
Today while trying to update my blocked bidders list with extremely annoying guy who keeps bombing me with ridiculous
offers I got an error message "The following user(s) were not valid and therefore were not added to your list. See all" and Mgreen3481
was removed from my list cause "Mgreen3481: Invalid User or User not found".
Does that mean that eBay has blocked or removed the user? It also may be caused by Mgreen3481 himself.
Anyway looks like blocking that exact user name doesn't work any more.

He'll be back shortly as Mgreen3482 with a new credit card number and a fresh start at ripping people off.

Try using lower case m....mgreen3481 rather than Mgreen3481.
I already had him blocked but when I re-blocked him just now it didn't say that he was invalid.
