    Cathy,

    You certainly are having a run of bad luck with some of these scammers (I've been respondng to your posts about Weber). I've been dealing with the same on a much smaller level - cc chargeback and pp reversals from overseas ebay purchasers. It used to be one every couple of months. Lately its about once per week. It's starting to feel like no one is legitimate anymore. Not to mention the 15-20 solicitations for my ebay and paypal info I get daily from people fishing. Or fake "where is my purchase" requests (click here to respond -> takes you to a scam ebay loin screen), or fake "you've just paid for your rolex watch" (click here to cancel -> takes you to a scam pp login screen). You really have to be on your toes nowadays.

    Hi Steve :)

    Yeah! I've been getting ALL of those exact same emails!! My eBay account was even compromised and someone listed a bunch of Nokia phones & changed my address to a U.K. address!

    Just recently, I've started searching for authentic name brand dealers so I think that's why I'm coming across so many scammers all of sudden. But, it isn't making for a very good start for me. Right now, I've tossed almost $2000 in to scammers' hands (which is about $2000 more than this stay at home mom can afford!) :(

    Good luck!

    Hi Cathy,

    My wife quit her job to take over the business I started 3 years ago. We too do not have the luxury of being able to throw money away. Even $1-2K hurts! I can't imagine losing tens of thousands ... oh, wait, yes I can ... I did it in the tech stock crash a few years back! Now I remember ... it really sucks!!

    Anyhow, I'd recommend running the supplier names through this forum and 411, then running a whois on their company and even pay the nominal fee to whois the person themselves (background check) before going forward with anyon new. I also find the trader ratings on ioffer to be useful.

    Steve
