  • Find a person who does not exist????

    I was recently scamed by someone on eBay with a 30+ Positive Feedback! Why
    else would I send a Cashiers Check? I had a P.I. friend check on him and
    found out that there is no such person. All I have is an e-mail and a P.O.
    Box to go on. How do I use the START - RUN - "whois" or how do I find the
    out of state P.O. Box person?? Any help appreciated!!!

    Nelson,

    If this person had a P. O. Box then the Post office will have his name
    and address on file. No guarantee that this info is not fake though. The
    bank where the check was deposited should have info as well.

      Does the person reply to your emails? Why do you say you were scammed?
      Did he/she fail to send you anything or was it not what you expected?

        Help yourself first, lazy-***.


        How much money were scammed for and what was the item? I have the feeling
        you're not telling us the whole story.

        a.. eBay members can't misrepresent their identities.
        a.. eBay members must always provide valid and complete contact information.
        a.. For everyone's safety, members are never permitted to publish the
        contact information of other members in an online public area.
        a.. Every eBay membership must always have a valid email address.
        a.. eBay buyers and sellers must be over the age of 18.
        a.. You can provide your buyers and sellers with additional reassurance by
        registering with our ID Verify program.
        a.. eBay has certain policies regarding choosing your User ID.

        Did you ever think to request to request the seller's registration info?
        Once you have establ;ished a sale between the person of interest you can
        immediately get ebay to email the info to you. If any part of it is
        questionable ebay will cancel his account. Had you done your research you
        would already know that, or is it that you're too **** lazy to do it for
        yourself.

        I'll make it real easy for you...what is the seller's ebay ID?

            Send a request of information to the postmaster care of the zip code.
            USPS has a form you can fill out requesting box holders ID.
            You can also contact the bank at which the check was cashed and file federal
            fraud charges against that person.
            Even if they are not the person whom you did business with.
            Your PI didn't do much work for the money. I wouldn't do any more business
            with him.

            You might also be able to file charges against ebay but that's a royal long
            shot last resort.

            This is not legal advice. If you need legal advice, obtain it by hiring an
            attorney.

                I have done all that I know how to do. I have notified eBay Fraud. He does
                not want to do SquareTade arbitration. The Police referred me to the State
                Attorney General. I filed the Internet Fraud form of the FBI. In a few
                weeks/months all of these people will help me, long after he has skipped the
                country with 10s of thousands of dollars. I posted here looking for help as
                to what I could do and I appreciate what help has been given. I don't feel
                that I am lazy as Patty thinks, she knows me so well. Maybe all of my
                houses walked up to me and asked me to buy them. I am a newbie, not lazy,
                just needed some direction. Thanks to anyone who gave me some ideas and no
                thanks to Patty for being so judgmental, I wonder how many houses she owns!!

                  Find a person who does not exist????

                  Well, that may be hard to do in terms of finding the guy...I had something
                  similar happen to me where a person was able to get into a database where I
                  had bought products from and use my info to buy stuff...he spent about a
                  grand on stuff and thankfully discover card waived all the transactions
                  without any fuss (I'm a long time user of the card though) (if you pay with
                  check, do it through bid pay with a credit card to cover your butt)
                  However, finding the guy was a pain...he made a yahoo wallet account to buy
                  the stuff, and I had to go through hoops to get a supeona even though I
                  have connections in the local PDs...if the crime doesn't occur in the
                  town/city( at least in Chicago), then you have to find where the crime
                  occurred and file a report with that pd and file the subpeona through them
                  before the info on the person will be released...it's a mess,this happened
                  in april 02, and nothing has happened. It's really not a top priority in my
                  pd which is completely understandable to me since it was under a grand and I
                  got my money back...but I wonder how many people he's been able to pull this
                  off on??? This privacy act stinks when you're a victim of fraud.... best
                  of luck! Oh and always look at the positive feedback in terms of seller
                  response, and not overall...you may have better luck that way.

                    I heard that it was illegal for the post office to give out residental
                    address's of people who have a P.O Box. What I would do is call/mail
                    the post office and make it sound like the guy sold you something(well
                    he did actually) and you never recieved the item so you needed his
                    home address to get ahold of him. You see the post office can't give
                    out residential address's UNLESS they are using the P.O box for
                    business purposes. So the name of the game here is pretext, make it
                    sound like that is what he is doing and they *should* give you the
                    "goods".

                    Maybe theres a way of getting ahold of him by telling the bank that
                    the check might go bad, or was written for the wrong amount. Again use
                    the pretext of a bad check or what ever else might work.

                      That's interesting, but I wonder if a phone call saying that the guy
                      is doing mail-order business would be enough to get a home address. I
                      used to work for a notoriously abusive collection agency, and they
                      used to tell me stories from back in the old days before the Fair Debt
                      Collections Practices Act (or whatever it's called), and one of their
                      favorite tricks was to call a post office and rattle something that
                      sounds like a rattlesnake over the phone while explaining that they
                      need the home address of the boxholder so that they won't have to ship
                      live rattlesnakes through the post office. Who knows? it might still
                      work.

                      If you have an bank account number, you might be able to call the bank
                      and say that you're in business and that one of the checks you
                      received as a payment accidentally got put through the wash in one or
                      your shirt pockets and was almost completely destroyed except for the
                      account number, but you don't know who the check was from since it was
                      posted to your books as received and you don't know which account, and
                      so you need a name so you can contact the customer and ask for a new
                      check.

                      I strongly advise against trying any of these things without advice
                      from an attorney.
