This buyer emailed me asking for 600 DPI scans of a typed/signed letter from a Hollywood Executive, which is a VERY huge scan, by the way. Ridiculously huge.
This buyer then won the item, and did not pay for over a week, despite multiple invoices sent as a reminder. He did not pay until I opened an "item not paid" dispute in eBay. Filmpast then promptly paid for the item, within minutes of the dispute being opened.
I shipped promptly, and then the buyer receives the item, claiming that he is an "expert" on this particular executive's signatures, and that the item was "highly suspect". If this user was such an "expert", he would have known from the HUGE scan that I sent that something wasn't right. He knew what he was getting prior to bidding.
A full refund was offered upon return of the original item.
The buyer did not contact me again, nor did he return the item. Once the 45 day limit was expired for opening a dispute through eBay/PayPal's buyer protection programs, this buyer did a chargeback through his credit card company, which resulted in PayPal reversing the transaction, which of course came out of my PayPal account, including chargeback fees of $20.
This buyer is particularly devious, because he conveniently ignored the eBay/PayPal buyer protection programs, which would have REQUIRED him to return the item for a refund. So now, this buyer has the item AND the money.
The name on this buyer's account is NEIL LIPES. I also received emails from this buyer under the name of JEROME CARRECHIA.
This buyer also has two different email addresses, one on his PayPal account, another that he contacted me with through eBay:
firstname.lastname@example.org (PayPal account)
