I just spoke with a coin dealer who is also a personal friend, he warned me of selling to this person -

He has ripped off at least 7 people since last month, including my dealer friend. All cheap items that wouldn't be sent with a tracking number. He buys from someone a couple of times to establish trust. Then he leaves positive feedback and then claims the other parcels never showed up. His name is Francis Larochelle

If anyone here has experienced this, it is important to follow up on your original feedback...

He got me...

I dont know if NorDev or Cameron93 are on here but thanks for the, sadly now late, warnings.

Anyone have a Canada Post Tracking number with his address I could use?

Or to Victoriaville, QC?

Johnny... make sure you follow up with your original eBay feedback... makes the argument easier with eBay admin if it can be demonstrated there is a pattern with this user...

I have not done eBay in years so maybe I am out of the loop: Why are all these people posting Positive reviews with negative comments? Do negative comments not show up anymore?

I've looked threw the feedbacks and noticed this guy screwed 4-5 dealers that I've recently bought from. Such a shame!

I rarely sell on eBay (normally buy) so I'm a little foggy on what a seller can do to prevent this from happening. Once this guy wins a bidding, or picks a BIN item, and makes payment, is it possible to NOT deliver to him and just send his cash back? Or, are you automatically locked by eBay to mail out the item?

I think you can block bidders from participating?

If you sent his money back, you'd have to do it registered/certified or else he'll claim he never got it.

Someone should send him a can of butt whoop.

Sellers haven't been able to leave Negative feedback for many years, only Positive. Hence the negative positives.

also I would bet, if someone took the time, to contact the the other sellers involved, that this goes a lot deeper.

Going to Canada Post with a claim of mail fraud might be an option...

Does eBay still host forums where you can discuss problem buyers/seller?

I think they did once upon a time?
