    Hey guys I was scammed. I bidded and won a hondata s100 w/. p28 and obd2a-1 harness for $350. During the auction I asked the seller tons of questions and she answered all of them within an hour or so. I have every email. I have adress, home phone number, cell phone and aim name. Since I paid for the auction with a money order I have not heard from her (almost 2 months) I have not received items and she does not answer my calls, or messages. Does anyone know anything I can do? I spoke to a lawyer and she said to file a small courts claim I would have to file it in Florida. Let me know what you guys think. Here is the link to the ebay posting. This is a heads up for people buying from

    Tabitha Atwell
    Hallandale FL
    AIM name: seemonkeydance

    I will also be reporting her to 4 different fraud agencies.

    inter-state relations = mail fraud.

    call up your local post office and see what they can tell you about pressing charges.

    Go after EBAY. They should go after the person for you.

    Ebay only guarentees up to $200-$25, so I only get back $175

    I feel your pain I got scammed by a race shop for $575 for my Hondata S200, new ECU, and jumper cable. I have done everything I can think of and no one wants to help me and guess what the worst part is I was smart enough to pay CASH.

    Uhm... FCC doesn't have any handle on the internet to my knowledge, which is why www.knac.com the online radio station that I listen to, can say fuck shit, piss, whore, motherfucker, and whatever else they want and not get shut down by the FCC...

    dude she has NO feedback, that should have raised the flag right there....

    I feel your pain man. I too was a victim of Ebay fraud, except mine was a hellava lot more money then $350. It happens to all of us sooner or later. Live and you learn.

    You can file an on-line mail fraud complaint on their site: www.usps.com and it's free. eBay won't do shit to get your money back, only cancel the seller's account.

    I have used ebay for over 5 years and have great feeback. I have never been scammed. I have over 100 transactions. I also talked to her and got contact info and she responded, that is why I bidded even though she had 0 feedback. Now I will only use paypal CC. I really don't want to let her get away with it though, you know.

    Any other FL peeps want to help me get money/stuff?
