Unhappy Please help, I was scammed...

Bought 2 outdrives on ebay under my dad's e-bay account,
Were bought and paid for Immediately through Paypal
Am currently trying to investigate through ebay, paypal, and the credit card company. I never got them and the seller will not return my e-mails. Please if anyone knows where these really were or if anyone knows the seller or has any more info, I really would appreciate it immensely, Thanks, BBB

E-Bay and PayPal will conduct an investigation. If they find that it is a scam you should get your money back. I think you have to wait something like a month before either of them will take action. Read their rules.
I purchased an item on E-Bay and the guy never sent it. I filed a complaint and about 2-3 months later my money was refunded.

Be patient.

I hate to tell you but this is a scam. I sold these drives on OSO about 2 months ago. The pics were taken in my garage and the description is the one that I used here. If I can help, let me know.

I would think contacting the person that bought them from you to see if he still has them might be helpful.

I did a quick search for Dan W. Train.
On www.melissadata.com click on "Lookups", then under "Business and Professional" click on "People Finder".
I entered Dan Tain and search came back with Dan W. Train, age 59. There's one in Alton, KS and another in Athol, KS. For a fee you can get his address.
I tried Shanna Scone, none in Kansas. But there is one in Florida and another in Pennsylvania.

Hope this helps.

Please pass the word and make sure no one deals with these people ever again. It will cost Mr Train, way more than he scammed me for ! Thanks, BBB

thats not always true, they found in my favor on a dispute but the other party had already withdrawn all the funds out of their account so i got nothing back... paypal said if they used their account again they would freeze it, no luck in almost 2 years....
