Beware of User hjohn - user now banned

Post by miles » Fri Apr 20, 2018 6:22 am

Please be aware of User hjohn on here.

memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=42690

It was a risk dealing with a user with only a few posts, but I wanted those Enders Pans for my Westy.

Payment sent last Friday, and no communication from hjohn at all for the last week.

Paypal case created just now.

Let's see what happens.

I will keep this updated.

Thanks

Miles.

Update, this looks like it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Let's see how this unfolds. Popcorn anyone?

I've been into VWs for twenty plus years, and i've been scammed on a Westfalia roofrack which was sold to half a dozen people. That's it.

I hope this is a erm mis-communication, but it's more to let you all know that all is not quite right.

Can his posts not be removed from the for sale section?

We don't want scammers on here!

Communication has been received from hjohn. Regrettably the four messages are not very helpful.

I have asked for a tracking number.

I have screen-grabbed all four, so you can all see who we are dealing with.

I will leave this here, so you can all arrive at a conclusion.

After receiving threatening and abusive PMs from hjohn, this user has been banned.

Banning him will hopefully shut up his shorty mounth.

Do you think you'll be able to claw back the money from pay pal?

Italian scum Emeliano Columbo again in all his guises..

We have been here many times with this guy..

Sad we do not have a limit of X posts before you can buy and Y purchases before you can sell.

I tried to buy something from him but smelled a rat when he could not remember where he said he was or where the item was..
His command of English is poor but he claimed he lived in London but could not tell me the post code to tie up with his claimed address.

He is at least consistent in both his buying and selling tactics..
A weasel and a scammer..

So the first hint that he has been sussed.. he says his items are sold or deleted..

Sad for you miles..
pursue him with all the listed ways he sells

Scamming for over 9 years..

I actually visited Mir in Milan, or how he calls himself now.
It seemed a nice guy, but when I was home I figured out the item I bought (Dormobile roof) wasn't complete as he promised.
I do have pictures of him and of his sister(?). ;-)
