Known eBay scammers as of October 2015: 1) scorp_technology Sells opened and used Mac Pro (supposedly 2012, but likely 2010 or before) claiming to be brand new. After paying for item, seller purposefully ships back to his own city so eBay says "Delivered". Refuses refund or any cooperation, knwoing full well he never shipped to buyer, hoping they will not open a case against him so he keeps the money. Then relists same item as BIN only @ 25% or more markup than what previous buyer (who won't receive item) paid. As of October 2 2015 the duplicate auction is still up. Nearly unresponsive most times except to give one or two excuses. Questionable other items for sale. 2) maccompusave Claims to have new 2010 Mac Pro Server units, in addition he has overpriced custom/opened 2012 units. Upon attempting to complete purchase and checkout, seller wants you to call him up via phone and hand over your credit card details because he "doesn't like Paypal". He claims his unknown warranty is good enough excuse for buyers to go with that shady deal. Hostile and unprofessional in messages when questioned. More details in the thread. Feel free to add any other scam sellers so we can warn others. I found out the hard way that finding a sealed cMP in 2015 is pretty much virtually impossible. Original Post: Someone is going around on Ebay with what he claims to be a brand new, never used 2012 Mac Pro 5,1. I won the auction against a lot of bidding competition last month for just about $2000 US. I paid in full via Paypal shortly after winning the item. After days of waiting and asking the seller what is going on with shipping, he claims to have shipped it via USPS. All looked well, despite free shipping probably making shipping weeks and weeks slower than normal. 2 weeks later, the tracking information says it has been Delivered. But it was delivered to the same city it was originally shipped from! So the seller seems to have purposefully shipped it back to himself or somewhere he could pick it up. Days later he relisted the EXACT SAME item on Ebay (same description and everything) except it was not Auction, but Buy It Now for $2600 US, 600 more than what I paid. Red flags: After looking through his feedback, which was almost completely positive, I found Negative feedback "more than a year ago" (1? 2? 3?) from someone else who bought this exact item from him with exact title information saying it was obviously not new and been opened. Not sure if the buyer actually received it or he left that after winning and canceling. The item is claimed to be brand new yet has screenshots of Yosemite being displayed (this never shipped with that obviously) and specs that are not Apple stock or even Apple-upgradable (there was no 3.33 GHz option for 2012 models, only 2010). Main picture is messed up condition of only side of the box. Other items for sale are some used tuxedo tops and jewelry, don't know about anyone else but this screams stolen high-price items and trouble. Seller replied to claim with "Hi, I am sorry for this issue. I sent the item out a few weeks ago via USPS. I do ship to Paypal's confirmed address." but that is obviously BS, my address is not in California (his state). I need your advice on how to get a refund. I filed an "item not received" request but I don't even want the item anymore. This may be a hijacked account and want nothing to do with this seller. Please tell me if I should edit in the auction links, or if I should only give them out via Private Messaging.
