Mayhemmer's PLEASE BEWARE OF FRAUD
« on: October 02, 2015, 07:57:01 AM »

Hi All

As some of you may be aware, there has been a lot of skulduggery going on behind the scenes, where 2 Members of this Forum (me included) have paid for items via PayPal and not received the goods.   The goods were advertised by a member of this forum and still not supplied even though he accepted the transaction and took our money.                     

He didn't respond to requests or personal messages other than say he had no money to feed the dogs!!!!!!!!!! 

We have now found that the items he sold to us are up for sale on EBAY - I have Martin Mayhem's permission to name and shame the member and also the other party involved, who will no doubt post on here as well ONORA YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!   

I don't really need to disclose too much about the deal as I think the Police and Fraud squad are involved looking into the issue further.

I will say this categorically we understand the rules of the sales board on Mayhem and abide by them and WE DO NOT hold any responsibility towards Mayhem.

aye
John

Thanks for the heads up John it is very unfortunate that there are people like that in this
World running all types of scams to gain from genuine people.
Hopefully he will get what he deserves

IF THIS IS SO THEN IT IS DISGUSTING THAT HE FLIES THE FLAG OF THE RNLI AS AN AVATAR

this person should be banned from any trading and also reported to ebay for his fraudulent listing

John if you and Charlie have paid on credit/debit card via pay pal you'll get your money back . Yes it may take some time and I would certainly be peeved  >>:-( . I see he was on the forum last night , it's not like the guys a new member and quite bizarrely onora is Gaelic for honour  {-)  ! Perhaps there is a genuine reason for the faux pah, obviously you two know all the details and we don't . Good luck in getting it sorted out

 <*< So sad to hear this,I have dealt with Mayhemers overs the years and and had nothing but a good relationship with the guys on here both selling and buying, so it must very rare for  this to happen to us,I know it goes on a lot on the other site and you hear horror stories all the time,the person involved should be removed from Mayhem but only after he has time to explain himself,if this is not forthcoming then straight away,as I said so so sad........Ray. <*< <*<

I was very tempted by the Decaperms. Fortunately, I don't have a Paypal account and so didn't bother trying. Phew !
 
Scammers ? NO !  THEY ARE THIEVES, (of a very low order).  >:-o >>:-(
 
Thank you for the heads up Gentlemen.  :-))

Hi one and all, just to let you all know that I have just checked my PayPal and money has now been refunded in total.    Thank you all for your support.

I am still cautious of this guy though, as why did he not come forward straight away to ask for help to sort out his problems with PayPal etc.   There are a lot of experienced people on this Forum who would have been so willing (even discreetly) with any problem.

Thank you once again.

Hey I am off to put a bid in on that switcher on Ebay...NOT ....  <*< <*< <*< %% %% {-) {-) {-) {-)

(one of the Mayhem MORONS) :-)   if you wonder what this means have a look on Ebay :-)

This guy piped up when I posted on my interest in the Director class tug. He was offering a hull and plans. But, for something he'd had kicking around for a long time he seemed to be rather impatient for responses to his sending of images. It was smaller than I'd like but his manner made me cautious enough to not go any further.
Looking at the images they were taken at the right time to show they were probably showing things he had for sale, but something put me off for sure.
