This info from "Gabe":

Getting trolled is one of the most annoying parts of buying and selling on the internet, here are some helpful tips to keep you on top of the game:

Have good communication with the buyer/seller, make sure you know his address and phone number before you complete anything, and verify his address/phone number (try reverse look up on [url]www.infospace.com[/url])

If possible, attempt to pay via Escrow or Paypal, they offer buyer protection services that you do not have with a check or money order, plus a lot of times it is more convenient. Never pay with cash.

Always ship with delivery confirmation or some form of tracking, insurance is also recommended and it does not cost much. Be wary of shipping to P.O. Boxes.

Check the person's rating with eBay, Paypal, Heatware ([url]www.heatware.com[/url]) or Tech Monkeys ([url]www.tech-monkeys.com/[/url]) If the person does not have any prior transactions, attempt to have the person ship first or have extensive information to ensure you are not trolled.

Already trolled?
File a complaint online with the FBI: [url]http://www1.ifccfbi.gov/index.asp[/url]
and if you shipped with the USPS: [url]http://www.usps.com/[/url]

Most Attorney Generals' websites have similar tools to file complaints, as well as other shipping companies.

Hope this helps you guys out.[/quote]

The guy's info:
(snipped, it's above), this is about designatedd/dustin leavy
BTW, i didn't provide the number for you to prank call it, but rather to know if you are in a deal with him.

The story:

First: I didn't lose any money to the guy, but he lied to me for two weeks about the status of the transaction. He's certainly not someone I would trust with my money before I got goods.

On June 21, this person contacted me via AIM in response to a WTB thread I posted on for a iPod. This was a 10GB, 2nd generation iPod. He originally wanted $200 but went as low as $140 since he wanted the money for a camera. I agreed to paypal upon reciept of the iPod and gave him my UPS account number to ship it, he promised to ship on Monday (7/23). On Monday he said he was unable to ship it and that he would ship tommorrow. He indicated that Fedex may be more convienient so I gave him my Fedex account number as well. On Tueday, June 24, I unsuccessfully attempted to contact him via AIM. He "signed off" after some of my IMs but appeared to be online when I used a different screen name.

On June 25 I called and spoke to his mom who agreed to ship the iPod via USPS at work the next day. I heard nothing further until yesterday (Tuesday, July 2) when he sent the following email:

"sry man, but at the last second i found someone whgo
was willing to pay
180 for it."

My response to that email was as follows. I phoned him today and he hung up.

"Actually, you lied to me. I bought $100+ of accessories (case, power adaptor, FM transmitter, software, etc) for this iPod. I need it for a trip for which I am leaving Thursday. Furthermore, your mom confirmed that she would be shipping it when I called Wednesday. Now I am out $100 in accessories which are absolutely useless considering I am leaving for a long trip soon and needed the iPod for that- and you didn't even have the courtesy to notify me ahead of time so I could find another iPod. I intend on calling tommorrow and explaining this situation to your mom since she agreed to send it to me."

I just wanted to add that anything for less than $500 does not require a written contract. I think you can, if you want, take him to court for it. Basically, the case would be, he offered and you accepted his offer. You giving him the Fedex/UPS account number and him agreeing to ship it might constitute considerations (I'm pretty bad at consideration since I'm not really a lawyer. I'm taking a law class right now and we went over contract laws) Just a head up that you might have a case.

Also a warning to those who's thinking about trolling....

actually, correct may if I'M wrong, but i think you might be

isn't it everything over FIVE dollars does need a contract, and that contract being the receipt you receive after you make the purchase ?

It could vary from state to state. So this could just be for CT where my school is.

I was trolled by a user in this forum. He still post here, Name was Mr. Havok or something. Watch out for this prick. Granted it wasnt a lot of money, or i will have his head, but its not the money that counts, its the priciple of the deal.
