I've just had an interesting response from a seller on eBay, selling an Emu Vintage Keys Plus. When I asked them if they had any pics, they replied "don't have pics...sorry". They're selling a SH!T load of music stuff, worth 10,000's. I was a bit caught off guard, I have to admit... so won't be making a bid on that item.

Follow up: I replied saying:

"OK, thanks for your reply. If you can be bothered to take some and upload them I might consider bidding. Thanks, P."

Their reply was... wait for it...

"I am not bothered"

My hunch would be they're dodgy so will share their eBay name in case anyone else is looking at any of their items: carmen7221

It seems this seller is far too good for us mere peasants, check their latest reply out:

"for a stingy 150 quid you want pictures...don't you want a HD movie with this rack? It is in very good condition and by the way...after playing it again...I think for this sort of change is not worth selling is it? So, it is not for sale anymore."

two words, arrogant c**t

If you check out his auctions, in some of them he states he's leaving the UK for good in 5 days....

Well, I just had this come through regarding an ad for an MS6:

> My name is Peter Chamberlain from Sweden...I am contacting you regarding your advert you place on website that you are looking for the above subject...I have it in very good condition and if still interested,Let me know and i will forward you details of the item and i will also need your shipping address and telephone number to calculate the shipping cost to your destination.My mode of payment is Via Paypal,Western union,MoneyGram..Bank wire transfer..Let me know which method you prefer and i ship the next day after payment has been receive..My phone number is +46704029617..Feel free to call me anytime for further discussion or email me back thanks and hope to hear from you soon >

These tossers must think we were born yesterday. I think it's always worth getting them to send pics with copies of your email or the advert next to the item.

Germany, Sweden... Mr Chamberlain gets around a bit.

Was going to post an ad warning people to beware of him, but if he's so dim as to continue using the same name, maybe we'd be better off not letting him know he's been rumbled? What do the SOS people think?

On second thoughts, he probably only reads the wanted ads so I will post to warn others

Thank you for this post. He just replied to my wanted add for a GR33. After reading through the thread, I have not tipped him off and just replied that I had already purchased it.

The text in the post is exactly the same as posted by Monotron.

Thanks for this post about Peter Chamberlain. He has responded to my request for an SM81 mike with the same generic wording as your responses. There again if he is genuinely selling a lot, he may have a template - he included specs and photos on request

My only concern was his gmail address ( I tend to be itchy about gmailers) but when I requested photos he has sent them straight away and they're obviously taken with a mobile. The price is right and he checked post and shipping costs against my address.

I was about to pay via Paypal as the safest means but they didn't recognise his email address - not sure what to do now if he sorts out things with Paypal.

My advice is walk away. He is a scam. I have put a couple of Wanted Ads on the SOS site. On two occasions I received a reply from this guy. Neither of the things I was looking for were run-of-the-mill stuff. But low and behold, Mr Chamberlain had both of them!!

It is a scam. Do not give your hard earned away. I have been scammed out of £300 once. Never again. And believe me, when you have been scammed you feel sick and bloody angry!!

Don't do it.

He offered me a TR-808 for £600 (about 2/3 - 1/2 the going rate), with photos, but he referred to it as a TR-606. He also replied to my ad for an S1000.

If there's just one scintilla of doubt about an online transaction, it's better to leave it be: there's plenty of genuine sellers around and nothing's that rare that you should feel you must proceed (I've been trying to buy an 808 for 6 months now) - be patient. My 2p worth is that he'll get back to you saying there's a temporary problem with his Paypal account and can you pay by bank transfer or Western Union. My understanding is that Paypal's not that safe: you pay, the seller swiftly whips the money out of their account - Paypal can only refund you if the money's still in the seller's account (if someone can clarify this, I'd be grateful)...

If someone wanted to take the trouble to empty his account and run every time a transaction was disputed, he could get away with ONE scam. Or there's the Chinese method of flooding eBay for a few weeks with suspiciously cheap memory sticks etc., taking as many orders as they can, sending out fake items and then disappearing. eBay's system might be able to get your money back, but really you have to admit you gambled, and you lost.

Fortunately you can get your money back from Paypal after a fraudulent transaction, as a while ago somebody got hold of my credit card details and used it through Paypal, but I got the money back.

What's so dodgy about having a g-mail account? I would of thought the email of choice for scammers would be something like hotmail

Any way I always wanted to see a kind of star rating system similar to ebay on SOS reader ads, I have been buying and selling on SOS since 2003 and it would be nice if any one who never brought anything of me before would know I have sold and brought a few things and have many happy people who haven't screwed over or received dodgy goods...when ever I buy things I always have in the back of my head...what if? Although most of the time the genuine people you can spot a mile off well most any way

That said.......

I started a thread here relating to small Firewire soundcards. I received a PM from someone on this forum saying they has a Motu Ultralite I could have for free!! He was getting rid of loads of gear because he was moving abroad. He didn't want any money for it just asked me to give a bit of money to charity to 'keep the karma flowing'. I didn't even have to pay for postage.

** ALARM BELLS **

Too good to be true = usually is

I gave the guy my work address as I was weary of giving my home address away under the cicumstances.

Low and behold, a few days later I received a fully working Motu Ultralite.

You see, there are some very genuine people about. Unfortunately, there are more scumbags so spotting a good one is getting harder.

Possible scammer advertising on SOS:

I replied to an ad for a Pioneer EFX 1000 for sale via SOS: got a reasonable reply:

Hiya..Cheers for mailing about my EFX1000 unit. Still have it for sale if you are interested.
I have attached a few pics to this mail. Paypal is also fine
Thanks
Alan

The pics weren't great and alarm bells started ringing when I replied to an ad a day or two later for a very cheap pair of NS10s and found it was from the same seller (just registered on SOS)... He didn't reply this time and now has two further ads for a PCM80 and a TLM103 (both cheap).

Looks suspicious: have informed Ian Gilby.

If I'm wrong, no doubt he'll get back to me and I'll remove this post: in the meantime, beware!

Have a wanted ad up for an 01v96 at the moment.

Just got approached by a Polish fella trying to sell me one. Shame he used photos I recognised from a recent ebay auction. Beware the Polish contacting you at the moment!

You'll probably get something generic like I did:

"From: marcinmazur@polandmail.com

Hello Friend,

Hope you are doing fine..My name is Mazur from Poland..How you still interested in your posted advert..Let me know thanks"



The eBay auction that finished recently that he got the photos from...



Watch out!

Hello everybody!
Sorry for my not too good english. I'm unfortunately victim of scammer. I wanted to buy blu-ray OPPO 83SE and gave adv. in polish hi-fi forum. He sent me response that he had one but his name was Peter Chamberlain.

"My name is Peter Chamberlain from London...I am contacting you regarding your advert you place on website that you are looking for the above subject...I have it in very good condition and if still interested,Let me know and i will forward you details of the item and i will also need your shipping address and telephone number to calculate the shipping cost to your destination.My mode of payment is Via Paypal,Western union,MoneyGram..Bank wire transfer..Let me know which method you prefer and i ship the next day after payment has been receive..My phone number is +447024029617..Feel free to call me anytime for further discussion or email me back thanks and hope to hear from you soon"


I was stupid and I believed him. I payed money by PayPal. It was about 18 July. There was no such an informations in net about him, probably it was beginning. Of course I didn't get item and money back. He all the time was promissing that he was honest.
Now I'm angry more beacause he uses my personal name. My name is Marcin Mazur. I live in Poland. Mr. Chamberlain ( surely it is also not his name) USES MY NAME to find next naive people. He even created new e-mail address using my name. He only left his own phone number +447024029617. I know that I was stupid and naive and I lost my money but it is terrible when You see your own name using by scammer. I don't know what to do now...

I take it that you have looked into Paypal recovery procedures? Paypal is not like Western Union. I believe there are certain steps that can be taken in such circumstances.

Unfortunately it is rather too late. It is 45 days in PayPal for these procedures. I didn't find any info in net about Mr. Chamberlain when I was paying my money. He gave his word of honour that he was honest. Then he promissed to give my money back. I found different posts of him about one week ago. When I wrote to him about this he stopped contact with me.

Beware EBay Trader: stageandsounduk. Real name: Roger Fauske. Location: Stroud, Glos. Also works as a music manager/agent and radio presenter in Stroud.

Getting a reputation for selling things, taking the money and then not dispatching the item and ignoring all communication. I'm currently going through EBay resolution with this person and hoping I'll get my (paypal) money back.

These past few months the only responses I've had to my SOS Ads are via scammers... they're so blatantly obvious too, I just don't get how they think they can trick us into dealing with them!!! Has anyone else seen this trend or is it just me!?!?!

Cheers,

Beware EBay Trader: stageandsounduk. Real name: Roger Fauske. Location: Stroud, Glos. Also works as a music manager/agent and radio presenter in Stroud.

Getting a reputation for selling things, taking the money and then not dispatching the item and ignoring all communication. I'm currently going through EBay resolution with this person and hoping I'll get my (paypal) money back.




wow.

I never read this post before. I just had a problem with the very same guy. I bought a 15m snake from him. didn't turn up. 3 emails. no reply. I managed to track him down on Facebook. contacted him there. He said DHL had posted it to the wrong address, and he would send another one he happened to have.

I got it 3 weeks later. Was very close to contacting Ebay to get my money back.

Some forums have a sub title you can select from a drop down box when you post with a more specific topic.

If you had one of those on the forums i.e.

mics
guitar
mastering
etc. etc.

All posts could reside in 1 forum then the webmaster could add a "show only title : mastering" button for example, is it possible?

cheers

... probably a "shutting the stable-door" job here, but anyway...

EBay Trader SHAHHEN ABDULLAH worked a clever scam with hookey audio software, but managed to issue registration codes that were valid for about six months... Box, CD, printing etc all looked absolutely OK. Also got 100% positive feedback!!

Then when the software stops working EBay and PayPal don't want to know as it's outside their 45-day cut-off. That also means, that they won't be after him for the money. Of course, he's "No longer a Registered Trader" and absolutely no trace through Google.

Apparently well-known to Acoustica, who have had numerous contacts (included mine) of the "Why is my software asking for registration codes?" variety.

Ah well... my first 'fingers burnt'/lost money in about 350 EBay transactions. The very few other 'iffy' ones have all been sorted through EBay/PayPal
