Subject: [CR]Re: A scammer on eBay

Any CR members have any dealings with a character on eBay calling himself "collabol", AKA "Peter Schotting", and "my Belgian garage"? I used the buy-it-now option to purchase 2 Campy hub shells BACK IN JUNE and have gone through the whole process including using Square Trade conflict resolution, but NO satisfaction! He took my money (unfortunately a Postal MO) and all I got was one lousy email reply. This was after sending him 4 or 5 emails over a 3 month period met only with silence, and finally he responded with vague explanations/excuses only when Square Trade got involved. Now 4 months later I see he's garnered a cluster of negative feedback and is no longer a "registered user", does that mean he's been drummed out of the eBay community? Any chance anyone in the CR group brushed up against this unsavory cheat, and can anyone with more eBay experience lend us a tip as to how to avoid meeting up with him in some other guise? Thanks for letting me vent, his sort just befouls our hobby. (Has the Baron ever heard of him? His mailing address was Kempenbos, Westelbeersdijk 6-70, Diessen, OT, 5087 TK in the Netherlands) Thanks again all, Alan Goldsworthy San Francisco, CA
