Recommended Posts

Minnken

I sold a book to a customer. Waited for payment. Eventually emailed her only to learn that a "charl yates" sent her an email thanking her for purchasing the book off bidorbuy giving her his banking details and asking her for her address!!!! She deposited the monies. How is this possible? Has anyone else experienced this????? Worried minnken

No I don't sell books Minnken. His name sounds very familiar to me, so I Google and came upon this.

seems to me she probably placed two orders on BoB at around the same time, one from you & one from the other seller & got confused between the payments.

Agree it sounds more likely the buyer just muddled her orders & sellers up. If you are still concerned / unsure, contact BOB, perhaps they can look at her account to see what she has pending ?

But this guy charl yates does not even have a sight on bidorbuy, he communicated with the customer purely be email, not through bidorbuy, she sent me the emails from him. Miemsjewel says she looked it up on google and I did aswell he has a completely different site, his own I would say and has nothing as far as I can see, to do with bidorbuy?

Sorry don't know what to suggest. Sounds odd and "disturbing", perhaps suggest that to your buyer email Charl directly ? I understand you feel you need to find out but I think it is really for your buyer to now sort out. Hopefully there is a straighforward answer / explanation !

He is a seller on BoB - unfortunately it is not for me to tell you his BoB username but I have dealt with him a few times & I can assure you, there is nothing dodge about him.

Miems tracked down his address and email from a google search. Why not just drop him an email asking what is going on? Or look him up in the phone book and give him a call?

if he is a bidorbuy member why did he not use the regular format for completing a purchase and why did he have to give her his banking detail and ask her for her address, no bob username mentioned or seen on emails???? I don't want to contact this person was just wondering if others had the same experience and whether he had been able to hack onto our customers. have reported it to bidorbuy will await their reply.

If you're talking about esteaduvenage, she has a rating from another seller (Waveren) for the same book she bought from you. She is also a very new user, who has only bought two items - the same book - from two different sellers. I'd put money on it that she has simply made a mistake, and that there is nothing sinister going on at all.

 

Occam's razor says that "simpler explanations are, other things being equal, generally better than more complex ones".

Thank you checked it out, seems plausible. Filed an SNC to get commission back. What a runaround. Why charl yates was involved is a mystery???? THANK YOU FOR ALL THE COMMENTS VERY HELPFUL

I could make an educated guess, but then perhaps I should stop while I'm ahead :-)
