Default Contact Info For BAB!!

Well lads, does anyone have any contact infor for the user "BAB"? the gearbox i bought from him was fu*ked, it cost me £140 delivered from him but i agreed with him that i would accept £80 refund, (which i thought was more than fair seeing as i had to pay for fitting and removing 2 boxes and buying another box as my car was undrivable), if i didnt bother sending the box back as the price of postage would cancel out the extra for the full refund. First he said he would send me another box but as this didnt happen and i had to have the box he sent removed and another bought and fitted i just asked for the refund instead, i opened a dispute with paypal but he assured me if i dropped this he would be able to send me the money so i stupidly dropped it and since i did he hasnt replied to any of my messages and doesnt seem to have been online either and he was on it every day up to then....

well i didnt drop it intentionally, its just that paypal said to return the box and give them the tracking number, but i mailed them and told them that the seller agreed to send £80 and i keep the box and the said not to drop the case until he payed so i didnt, but because i didnt put in the tracking number on the case it closed automatically!!

And yep i have his exact address that paypal mailed me..

This is why I will never buy from any one with less than 1k posts or if they have ever been in the scammer's section.

Send him a nicely worded letter by recorded post explaining you know where he lives the amount owed and if not you will get the police involved.

i wouldnt be surprised if hes re registered here under a different name as his own profile hasnt been signed in 2 weeks and he used be on the whole time!! has anyone else bought anything from him as he had a good few things for sale on the thread??

I actually though since he was a member on the site he would be ok.. ive bought hundreds of things now between sites and ebay and this is the only time ive had trouble!

In all fairness i think he genuine, you should have asked for a full refund and not dropped the case. He provides lots of pictures to prove what hes selling. Lots of feedback on eBay (464) 97% positive.

well i didnt want to say he was a scammer or anything because he assured me he would refund me and i was giving him the benefit of the doubt, i thought i was being more than fair telling him he could just refund me £80 instead of the full £140 but like its near 2 months now since he said hed refund me and still nothing, when i was buying the box i sent him payment straight away! As i say, ive bought hundreds of items from sites and ebay and this is the very first problem ive encountered

I'm going to move this into the suspected scammer section so it's more prominent. It is worth emailing him, and maybe dropping him a text message, telling him about this thread.
