WARNING - DEADBEAT EBAY SELLER "andrewtmajor"

This is my RICHLUBE MOTOR OIL sign. Ebay item 120939539113. I had it listed on eBay about 1 1/2 years ago. Seller "andrewtmajor" not only stole my photos but also my description.

I emailed "andrewtmajor" and offered $10,000 to end the auction. Hope my offer is accepted because I can't wait to get an address smile smile smile

call Ebay 866-540-3229

and tell them!

if you've got your old listing number that would really help them....but they should be able to pull up your past history.

that does no good!

and you have to wade thru a thousand options and none of them are the reason that this needs to be reported.

calling them is the only way to get anything done on this!!!!!!

"andrewtmajor" response: Hello, $10,000 would be fine. You got the deal! My PayPal email is xxxxxxxx@aol.com. Please respond via eBay messages after the payment is done so I will cancel the auction. Thanks!

As much as I wanted leave their email address for everyone to see. I'm not going to play at that low level.

My response: I'm on vacation in Florida this week. I can pay cash and take the sign with me. What is your address? I can meet you anytime after 5:00 PM. I have plans with the family until that time.

Waiting for the hook to catch...

I doubt that he will give you an address to pick up the sign since he doesn't have it. What a jerk. I hope he gets caught.

He is running now, the meet won't happen the address info won't happen. But it will be interesting to here the excuses why this can't happen.
I heard some good ones,when I 1st figured out how to cruise ebay,I was shoping for 4wheeler. If it was to good to be true it wasn't. And boy did I hear some good ones,as I only made contact with those that was suppose to be in the area where I could go touch and feel,and hand them cash.

I Think it would have been better if you stated you would immediately overnight him a Money Order as you didn't have enough in your Paypal account...You can always fall back to this if he starts to shy away.

You can never make everyone happy...
BTY- I work for a living and don't spend every minute on the computer.

I took the time to post while at work to protect Old Gas members, and also contacted eBay about the situation. The time is takes eBay to respond to an issue is out of my control.

I did save an Old Gas member a mistake as he sent me a PM to thank me! Apparently, some people do appreciate important collector information before it costs them $$!

If everyone on Oldgas clicks on the "Report Item" maybe we can get them to end the listing. It's worth a try.

Click "Report Item"
Click on "Listing Practices"
Click on "Fraudulent listing activities"
Click on "You suspect a listing is fraudulent"

Click on "Continue"
Click on "Submit"

Quess I wasn't clear, he might not contact you back, or he might make one more stab at explaining why what you want to do will not work. Thats where the wild stories come in .
No he is not running,bad use of words. He might shy away.

speaking from experience here....

when you call them you get results usually...

reporting an item rarely does anything...

I work for a living to btw....and don't spend all my time on computer....

I was just trying to be helpful.....FORGIVE ME...
