Bad Buyer: china-gate <>

Buyer's name:Yan Wen Shen

This criminal buys items on Ebay. He pays for tracked surface shipment from a far away Country (Canada in my case). Surface mail from Canada to China takes 8-12 weeks. After about 4-5 weeks, he files a fraudulent complaint with Ebay claiming the item has not been received - even though it is on route, and delivery would not be expected for another 4-8 weeks. Ebay then refunds the buyer the full payment (including mail). The buyer then gets his payment back, and when the item is delivered on schedule, he gets the item too. In this way he uses Theft By Ebay to steal valuable antiques from overseas.

I have just had a case found against me and googled his name and this is the same buyer.I would be interested in discussing the matter with the other seller if possible.

Luck has nothing to do with it.

True, all you can do is file a complaint with Ebay, and join the list. If you have sent an item to this chinese buyer by untracked mail, then most likely, you have just been robbed, by what is called Theft by Paypal. Thieves like this use Paypal as their weapon to get money from their victims, in the same way a bank robber uses a gun to get money from a bank.

No, u call up paypal and explain it to them. Ebay cust svc blows. Call paypal. They will refund u ur money. Trust me, i had to do thos with several fraud people. You will have to wait on hold for 45mins or so but dependn on how much it was for, u can get refunded. Paypal bases their seller protection on tracking, if u have tracking, and it shows its delivered, its a slam dunk case in your favor.
