This statement is to warn you who use ebay to sell or buy. There may be a possible scam going on between 2 members of ebay. The members to watch out for go by the handles makegreen2011 and austinpeterbilt6526. They kept bidding up an auction between each other and makegreen2011 won the bid. He has 1 feedback and it is a warning that he is a non payer. Ebay has a shipping address for him in VA. If you send a invoice it says to ship Item to ID. I was investigated that both parties had bid on another auction and refused to pay. The member austinpeterbilt6526 has the same zip in ID. as the mailing address for makegreen2011. Also austinpeterbilt6526 has his feedback set as private so no one can see his feedback profile. Ebay has been informed of this and they also confirmed that both of the members know each other. The scam is to bid up an auction 1 will pay and have the item shipped to the other then the one who paid will file a non receiving complaint against the seller and request a refund so the seller will be out the money and the item. This has been reported to ebay and they confirm it. Then when emailed both parties seem to vanish returning no answers or payments. I talked to the other seller of an auction he had and the winner was makegreen2011 and his mailing address was the same as I have. Ebay confirmed that the address for makegreen2011 is in VA. and that austinpeterbilt6526 is in ID. Ebay has confirmed that both parties know each other. So if you are bidding on any auctions watch so the bids do not get upped by m***2 (makegreen2011) or i***e (austinpeterbilt6526) they seem to work together and try to scam people. I know this for the simple reason it has happened to me on one of my auctions and I have not heard from either person when emailed. I still have the kit so no loss there but it is a shame that people have to be this evil.
