I'm begining to think I've been had. I purchased a rebuilt spit
engine from John Nichols, AKA NOBINGNOBOB on Ebay, about four months
ago. He seem like an honest guy but just has not been able to get
around to sending the engine up to Alaska. I paid with paypal as
soon as the auction ended. $950... Originaly I was going to have a
friend bring it up when he moved here but John cound not find the
time to bring it to him. He was only 2 hrs away and I offered to
have it shipped to him. But John said he would get it there. I have
sence asked him to atleast package it up and let me know where it is
so I can have it picked up and shipped. I have been way too easy
going with this guy and I'm thinking there may have never been an
engine to begin with. His ebay user name is no longer active so Ebay
is no help and paypal has a 30 day time frame to register a
complant. I'm at the end of my rope.

Is there any one in the Torrance CA area with mob ties? :) Just
kidding... I think...

Guess I just needed to vent a bit...

Hi Craig

I am a long time IAOC member going back many, many years. I read and save
every e-mail from this group and probably could be called a "lurker".

I am also a Private Detective and have access to many databases, and like
my twin brother Frank cptcrnch56@aol.com, detest a rip off / con artist. I
would
be happy to assist you in getting your engine or pound of flesh.

Please send me all the info you have on this "stiff" and I will see what I
can do.

Regards

Hi Craig,

Sorry to hear about your experience on eBay of Thieves.

I have been there myself. Based on my experience I can tell you that ebay will
provide no help at all and will simply absolve themselves of any responsibility.

If you did use a credit card via ebay then contact your card provider asap.
File a police report with you local pd which will not help much but at leat
covers you. Finally, contact directly the PD where the thief is located. In my
case it was the last step that led to an arrest, jail time, and finally full
restitution.

A good con man will always come across as a nice, honest person. You are
probably one of many of this guys victims. If using ebay these days I always
look for a long history of positive feedback and will file a claim asap if
prompt delivery in a timely manner.

Good luck. Keep us posted.

Mike I

Craig,
You should also file a complaint with the IFCC (Internet Fraud Complaint
Center). It's a division of the FBIs' white collar crime division. Check out
their site at (www.ifccfbi.gov). Also, if the guy is in CA., file a claim
with the Ca. state attorney generals office. They will hassle the shit out
of the guy. If all else fails, hire a goon squad for some street justice.
(just kidding) (no I'm not) Good luck from someone who's been there.
Bobby
