Re: Ebay scammer selling Olympus lenses

Thanks for listing the seller's eBay name and paypal account name. That's useful for those of us wanting to avoid this kind of seller.

If all of his feedback is negative, why would you want to bid on his stuff or send him money? People who are dishonest about one thing, especially in negotiating a sale, are generally dishonest about other things that matter. And you bid multiple times on his stuff? Perhaps you bid over a short period of time before you knew what he was like.

You're in Georgia too. Try to get his name. Then do a search for him/her and go pay him a visit. It may be that what he's doing is illegal too. Once you know where he lives you could turn him in. I would withdraw the payment funds. Then offer to go pay in person for getting the lens in hand at a mutually agreeable, safe location.
