Hi has anyone had any connection with [wholesalesmyelectronics@gmail.com]
he lists his items on ioffer.com under the seller name rasellery06 i bought a ipad off him on 20th october for $650.00 and he said he would send after 10days as his checkout system wich is www.ebaybanking.com/checkout paid via a visa debit card said it would aviod fraud and i have heard nothing since
he has good feedback really so i did not see a fraud coming.I have tried reverse email lookup but when you look it up on a map it goes to a parking space near a airfield which it seems is something to do with every gmail email sender
just wondered if any of you guys knew of a way i could find a address or phone number for him every site i try always want money and one i did pay that said they information did not have anything on him.He says on ioffer he comes from texas so I am located in the UK in Wales,so here hoping some one brighter than me can get me some where.

Hi purravida31

and :welcome: to AFI.

Thank you for your post and questions.

There are some reports in search engines (e.g., Google) that this may be a rip-off or scam. The "EBAYBANKING.COM" site is registered through "GoDaddy" to a private individual, not a bank or similar company, with an address at a PO Box in "Texas City", Texas, USA and it was created on August 7th 2010, with a registration for 1 year. All of these points are indicators that questions should be asked.

Our US Financial experts will need to check the company and its registration to see if it is legitimate.

If you have any emails, preferably with full headers, and could post them here it would help us to investigate further. Please check out the threads at How to find email headers and Basic email header analysis tools - a short tutorial for how to do this.

this is the email ralph larson sent me

Hi ****,
Sorry I missed your email, it got stuck in the spam box by mistake, I have strong anti spam filters.
Please go back to www.ebaybanking.com/checkout
I have standardized my prices everything will be on the site. My current and lowest prices will be on the site.
Thank you for your business,
Sincerely,
-Ralph Larson

Humm including postage huh..
That's a little hard to do but if you pay within 12 hours I will allow this.
Go here: www.ebaybanking.com/checkout
coupon code: 150
The coupon code will reduce your price to 500
I will try to check back, I am sorry to put the time limit on you, but at the price you offered, I really hope you don't check your emails often. ;)
Thank you for your business,
Sincerely,
-Ralph Larson

Hi Ralph I am sorry to keep emailing you about the ipad i have bought off you but i checked my bank acccount this morning
and the $650.00 has been paid out but the transaction name on the statment is LIGHTNGO.COM is this right?.I followed the link you gave me and it said it was rasellery06 store.Could you also confirm that you have had the email about being charged $650.00 instead of $500.00.The order number is 23 paid on the 20th of Oct.I dont mind if you keep the $150.00 as i want to buy a iphone off you in a months time perhaps you could hold it as a credit for me or do a partial refund whatever works best for you.But please can you email me a answer.

sorry this is the email querying the reciptent of money i sent him

Subject: Re: ipad credit card information

The cheapest an iphone sells for is $600 but then of course there is shipping (if your international) so then the price came out about right.
Ipads are as low as $500
Lightngo handles my merchant payments so that is correct don't worry.
Thank you for your patience, I get hundreds of emails and I realized your emails were getting tossed in the spam box so now I am getting back to you.
Also please note:
Your order has been confirmed and your payment has been received.
As stated in the listing, shipping will take place 10 days off from the date of purchase.
A 10 day hold is initiated by my merchant processor as a fraud deterrent and it's out of my hands. At that time, I will send you an email containing your tracking number. Also if you are located overseas please allow a maximum or 10 days to receive the item, depending on where you are located. Usually shipping is not a slow process and you should receive the product in your hands within 2 weeks but please be prepared for the maximum wait times.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me and kindly allow up to 24 hours for a reply as sometimes I get very very busy.
Thank you for your business, it is appreciated and have a wonderful day!
Sincerely,
-Ralph Larson

@ purravida31

thank you for the headers. As the email has come from a "Gmail" account, there is nothing we can do to get any more information about the location of the criminal running this scam, as that is what it is.

Here is the header thanks for your help
