    That time i got scammed on facebook.

    Long story short, braught a nightforce off a guy on face book, seemed legit even had it up on tardme. He pulled the auction when i agreed to buy it. put the funds through havnt heard form him since and it seems his profile was a fake.
    Cops arent to interested and said good luck basicly, if i want to take it further I have to wait a week without recieving goods.
    If your buying anything off face book get an address or drivers lisence ect ect,

    Read reply #17 and contact the firm. I sent a friend his way regarding a gym membership and they got what they wanted.

    Just caught up with @Cartman at midday today and he told me the story and its actually worse than he has described! He justified the nightforce by selling the Kimber to me so he's lost out x2. His bank had the gall to say they couldn't identify the bank that he (also them) transferred the money to!

    We got stung on FB with a guy selling sporting goods...quite a few people (dozen plus) so I packaged everyone's details up and liaised with the Police after making a formal complaint - he is now serving time (was a proper ratbag with us tip of the icerberg).

    Can you find their Trademe account? Trademe will have their postal address if so.
