I kind of hope you get an "intangible" solution to your problem.

Good on you. This is making me nervous, I have some higher end stuff to move on ebay.

I recently sold a very special mini cooper (classic) engine on ebay, $9K. I was petrified of chargebacks. So much so that I closed my checking account and opened and linked a new one with a net-bank.

As much as I rag on the kid, he doesn't deserve to get scammed.

Forgot to mention, just bringing out more guilt. I got my mother's account closed because it was linked to me. Had 105 feedback.

Do they teach irony in that college of yours?

I like your "I want to invent .... " threads a whole lot more....

.... and selling the "intangible" items that got him banned wasn't scamming?

At the least he deserves a good spanking ! Something still smells fishy.......

He deserves to be punished for his transgressions, not to be scammed by someone else.

Without seeing the ad, we don't know... so I haven't (and won't) accuse you of scamming. However, breaking the rules at eBay is usually not evidence of innocence.

This I also agree with. No one deserves to be scammed. However, I am finding it hard to work up much sympathy either. If Squilly was scammed, and without seeing all the correspondence I am reserving my judgement on that too, but if he was I would help him resolve the issue.

We're all victims of Squilly's threads; just like a train wreck I got to look . All kidding aside, whatever he's selling I'm not buying.

I would never buy anything that kid sells. He's got quite the brand name going for him!

I'm not a scammer, I wouldn't scam anyone.

We have a difference of opinion regarding the sale of 'intangibles' it seems....

And Squilly.... I'm not trying to give you hard time (not too hard a time). I am enjoying bantering with you. If I actually had a problem with this I would not be participating in this thread at all. For me, this is just banter.... We were all young once, and we have all tried to scam someone or some company. I got a free phone once - though at that time the only choices were wired kind. At the time I though I had "won"...now I realize it was just a scam. Oh well... live and learn.
