Bad Buyer: fwc_30 <>


Purchase date:April 2018
Buyer's name:CongYan Ni | Rong Shengxia
Buyer's username:fwc_30
Buyer's address1140 River Road Apt 6973466, New Castle, DE 19720
eBay item #:253531413671
Buyer's country:Hong Kong
Payment method:PayPal
Category:Computers & Networking

Scammer purchased product from my eBay store. Same day the package was delivered, scammer opened "defective product" return request. I accepted return and provided free return label from Delaware to NY. Buyer used his own label and shipped return back from Hong Kong.

Buyer provided fake tracking number so that the package could not be tracked until after delivery. Buyer called eBay and provided correct tracking number showing delivery of package to my address. But I didn't received anything. Buyer was refunded automatically by eBay once the the package showed delivery to my zip code.

What buyer performed was the "Same Zip Code" scam. I Contacted USPS and was able to found out the package was addressed and delivered to a Pizza store 26 streets away from my address with same zip code.

Upon obtaining proof from the USPS, package showed 0 weight. Hence, this was a empty envelop. Currently, the buyer eBay account had been banned. To resolve this issue, it took hours and days and many many calls along with trips to police station to get a refund from eBay. But scammer got to keep the product for free.

This input is to document this scammer so that if he commits another scam, there will be a record for other sellers to see and avoid the horrible experience I experienced.

Thanks for your posting. I was contacted by someone using the same address which is actually a large warehouse occupied by a Chinese logistics company.

I had a buyer named (Peng Dong) from the same address try and buy a $150 computer part almost went through with the sale thank God this post was made. His E-bay account was at the time (pd373307665) and they are all using slightly different apt numbers to the same address. When I went to refund the money was the only time I could see his email address and it was something ridiculous like ( which I looked up and once again it was something related to China and the business in Delaware happens to be some sort of Chinese Logistics Center Company. With the purchase right away I noticed something fishy due to him adding a purchase message that stated and I quote (Note to seller: The mouse is not open。)
If you experience the same issue I would consider making a quick call to E-bay as I did in this situation and they told me to cancel the order immediately and they would investigate the buyer and take care of any negative feedback or any issues that would possibly occur.

Same issue here, so glad this comment was up. The address was too fishy, looks residential until you google it and see that its a warehouse (no way for an apartment to be there)!

Thank you so much for this. I thought that address was fishy as hell so I did some Googling and got to here. Canceled the transaction. What a completely waste of time.

Thanks a lot for this post. This buyer under a different username (lakimchi_0) with the same address bought my item for $955. I did a simple google map search on the address and I didn't find anything so I'm glad I found this post. You saved me a lot of trouble and heartbreak. Thanks again!

Just dealt with this fiasco. Nightmare. eBay pulled the money from my account this morning to refund the guy. Same address. Same scam. Working with them to get refunded.

I am a user from China, this address is a warehouse of SF Express, a Chinese express shipping company, which help transfer goods from US to China. That company uses different Apt codes to identify different clients. Although some users may commit scam, please keep in mind that not all users use this address are suspicious, thanks (because I sometimes use this address as my shipping address as well:) ).

I work in this warehouse. Yes, it is SF Express and sends goods to China. Most people working here are scammers because that's what we Chinese people are. Though feeling shamed, we do it anyway because we can get away from it most of the time.

Exactly the same thing happened to me here. I only wish I'd seen this website earlier. :)

Same address: 1140 River Road in Newcastle, Delaware 19720, with a fake Apt number --all in keeping with the previous pattern. My buyer, voq.kug.hdrgugk, walked away with an Intel i7 7700K and the $350 that eBay automatically refunded him after he opened a defective product return request. Precisely the same MO--to the letter--as the OP. The only difference is that the USPS refused to give me the address the processor was "delivered" to, citing privacy laws.

Finally, eBay refused to refund my money, saying they have already closed the case and with tracking showing it was "delivered" somewhere in my zip code area, there is "nothing they can do but side in favor with the buyer."

Thanks for the post! Buyer with Chinese name, no last name, listed this warehouse with a fake apt number. All together it seemed a little fishy, so I googled the address, found this post, and was able to cancel the order before payment was received. Thank god.

I am currently being scammed out of a $330 factory sealed Intel BX80684I78700K 8th Gen i7-8700K Coffee Lake 3.7 GHz LGA 1151 Processor by a buyer, qi.jpsh.qihboa, with the address

QinGeng his
1140 RIVER' RD, .

The same exact thing happened to me as in the OP to the letter. Claimed product was defective, initially uploaded a fake tracking number, uploaded the real one 3 days after the item actually arrived, and I never received anything in the mail. eBay can't help me since the tracking shows "Delivered." Now I'm out $330. Beware!

I am selling some MacBook pros for my company. This buy bought all of them (23 MacBook pros!!!) and left this fishy apartment number, Apt 6367238. Seriously? After a simple username search online I found this site. Apparently, he would claim the items are defected after he receives the package. Then he would send empty boxes back. Smart, you Chinese scammers.
