refresco & hashtagtrends are scammers.

I am 100% positive this guy is a total scammer. He is using a photobucket account from the name carbon4exotics@yahoo.com. when i google this name it comes up as a scammer (its the photobucket account hes using right now) also went by the name c4e on other forums. I have sniffed out multiple scammers on other forums. Not to mention he only accepts bank transfers LOL

I would not be making this thread if i could pm a mod, i tried and couldnt. I fully expect his photobucket acct to be privatized after this thread or deleted, but i will post links. He has pics of items in there he has scammed people with as well. Hope i salvaged some people money.

Edit*
Here is some of the evidence I have accumulated...

http://forums.watchuseek.com/f63/bew...r-1495426.html Here he is being reported as a scammer. At least the name of this person is the same name his photobucket account is tied to. He just happens to be from Poland too, and as hashtagtrends does he just happens to be selling watches, and exotic car parts. m.

Heres a thread of someone saying they were scammed http://newscentral.exsees.com/item/6...ea2fe50f9796cb
He just happens to have the exact watch in the photobucket account that was used to scam this guy. http://s1379.photobucket.com/user/ca...ml?sort=3&o=95

I can get more too, he has scammed people of auto parts over and over. I've seen this many times. Also, just because you MIGHT get something you ordered doesn't mean he's not a scammer. I've seen these Ponzi scheme type who send a couple people what they ordered, get their rep up, and then rip off 10 people all at once.

I thought the same thing after exchanging a few emails with him.

Then I thought he may be legit cause he has tons of FS listings and I figured someone must of bought something from him and would of mentioned if he was scamming.

I just don't know anymore.

Those tracking numbers are good, and I would have no reason to think the seller is a scammer. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in regards to our transaction. Also sent a photo of my trim off the car and on his countertop being packaged for shipment. Although I have not received it yet, its an international delivery and I also requested he look for an additional item, so I expected a delay. I suggest we give him the benefit of the doubt, and allow the buyers to chime in before jumping to conclusions. As one of those purchasers, I will update this thread accordingly.

Thanks for the update Maciej (hashtagtrends)

I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt. Hopefully all is good cause he/you seems to find lots of gems and I will definitely purchase some in the future once he/you becomes a reputable seller.
