Item(s) for Sale:


Just a heads up people. i just got smoked for $520 on ebay from a seller named BUMPINPLEX.. I should really attach his last e-mail to this thread.. STRAIGHT UP SCUMBAG., he sells amps on ebay, and if he gets your money you can't say you weren't warned. I figured I'd post this in the amp classifieds so people looking to buy one know about this douche.

Did he have high feedback? Did you file a paypal dispute/claim? Try to use escrow services on purchases 500 or greater. I bought 5,000 dollar wheels and the transaction went smooth.

Paypal DOES NOT have you covered. If they cant recover funds you dont get money back. This is why i use a credit card on my paypal. You get screwed? File a claim with the CC company.

paypal doesnt have your back? I got my money back from paypal. I had bought spent $650 on a radio and he took 2 weeks to respond, so I put in a complaint. They took it back out of his account and put it in mine. After they proved he sent no tracking number and showed no proof he sent it.

They took it back out of his account and put it in mine.

That only happens if the scamming party hasn't taken the money out of their paypal account!!! Once they transfer it out or withdraw it from paypal that's that...you'd have to wait until they put some money back into their paypal account and if they've scammed someone then the chances of that happening is slim to none....

Why would someone come to the classifieds on this website to buy something from eBay? The Amplifier forum would have been a much better place to post this.

Regardless, thanks for the warning.

Wrong, but nice try.

They actually withdrew it straight from his bank account which was linked to guess what? his paypal account. He had no funds in his paypal account because he tried to close it.

Maybe its different now, but the last time i had an issue with a paypal sale, when i filed the claim, paypal went back and forth for a while before stating that paypal ruled in my favor but unfortunately my funds were "uncollectable". Nothing was every shipped to me and there were no shipping numbers ever entered to prove otherwise.

Yea it's fairly new and has a lot of sellers upset cause it gives a buyer three days to "test" and or break a item before you get your money and it ***** bad for sellers that's why I stopped selling big ticket items on eBay just small stuff for now on

Then they've changed their policy cause that's the exact way I got screwed on a transaction....they said that there was nothing they could do because he didn't have any money in his paypal account...


Not true If this is a eBay transaction PayPal now holds your money in PayPal till the item has been shipped and you can't take the money out until 3days after that! so if somebody flats out doesn't ship a item you file a dispute with PayPal the seller gets one week to respond if he doesn't you get the money back,I just sold a deck on eBay it was del yesterday but I can't pull the money out till Saturday

See above statement.....if this is the way they are now doing things then it is def an improvement in their business practices.....

When I got a claim filed against me I had 0 funds in my paypal but they took it out anyway. Just kicks your account into a negative balance and you can't purchase anything until you add funds to bring the balance above 0.

Wrong section. Why would you post a warning in the classifieds? how does that make sense? Why wouldn't you post it in the Buyer Feedback Forum?

Alright.. I already said I had posted it in the wrong section so you and the other librarian should settle down. People do purchase items from the classifieds, CORRECT?Is it unreasonable to think they may not shop exclusively in these classifieds, and might look at a site like ebay as well since this forum has them listed in the top 10 sellers!? It made sense to me at the time. So sorry if this upset youre delicate sensibilities.

It's not new. I did this over 4 years ago. LOL
I have a business account, its how the people involved verbally go after paypal / ebay. You keep all email communications in your mail ( also of seller ) and then forward everything ( even the case ) back and forth to ebay / paypal. You call every single day, twice a day till you get your money. Its not complicated, people are just push overs.

Also, you could go to the bank and claim a "wrongful" withdraw. You might have a fee ( in my case I did not ) but hey, losing $30 is nothing compared to the hundreds or thousands you lost.

Helps knowing a bank employee ( my case manager ) ...

Your money is ALWAYS traceable via paypal. Especially if the guy who stiffed you has "reputation". Unless you wait months to go after him.
