His username is "ORhvac". I bought a shock from him, and it is totally blown, and destroyed. Even though he stated in the add that it was "brand new"

Can you mark someone as a potential scammer for me?
Who? What? Mods can help and watch the thread to the extent they can, but info needs to be provided... e.g. user "x" sold bike "y" to me for "z" amount in "such and such" condition, but the frame was cracked.
*Edit* Nvm your second post is better Smile

Thank you for that. And hi mtbikeaddict. I just talked to you. I am the one with the purple intense tracer that i am selling

The one that is blown is the one that is on the tracer I am selling. I took it to fluid focus, and they made it brand new like it was meant to be. It looked brand new when I received it, but it was blown, and the rebound was broken.

Oh thanks! I actually found an Enduro I've got my eye on right now, so fingers crossed, but at this point I'll honestly take pretty much anything. But, thanks! Anyways, back to topic. Redface

Ok, ya. What am I supposed to do about it?

I want him to be punished in some way, as the amount if money I spent total is enough to buy me a brand new one

Short answer yes it is possible, longer answer it actually happening depends... It's up to the mods... sometimes they'll try to contact the the guy first... if you've got pics, texts, pm's or other such evidence usually he'll be flagged pretty quickly.

Possibly. I really don't know. I'm assuming you've already to work it out with him first? I checked his profile and he doesn't seem to have any buy/sell records so that won't help. If you've already reached a dead end with him then yeah just document everything you can here: correspondence with him, purchase price and condition, received condition, repairs etc.

First off, how long ago did you buy this shock.? and, did you via paypal for services/goods. If you did buy within the last 3 months via paypal, then you can file a claim. IF you paid via paypal friends or family, you pretty much out of luck. What you will need to file a claim is documentation of what the seller stated the condition was, pic's always are a good thing. Next I would take the shock to a good bike shop, and have them verify the shock is damaged, ask them to write a repair order if you can. Then present the repair order to paypal. Keep in mind, you want to ask for a Full Refund, due the item was Not as described.. Good luck.
