Default Let me go on a rant here.......

I'm gonna call out a EBAY bidder that is notorious for not paying or having to be chased by EBAY/PayPal. He is also a member on this site.

A few weeks ago I bid on a couple of items and lost both to the same bidder, not a big deal, happens to all of us ALL the time. I do a little searching and I find out who the bidder is and I wasn't really surprised. Fair play to him.

Last night I'm on EBAY around 3:am doing my usual searches and guess what? The same 2 items I was SECOND highest bidder on are relisted. Knowing the bidders past, I contact the seller and say "Let me guess, bidder didn't pay?" I also mention to the seller I was second highest bidder. The seller replies that I am correct, the bidder didn't pay, he also says the bidder has been blocked from his auctions. There was a 3rd item that bidder won from the same seller that was also relisted.

Now I'm pissed!!! Had "galoobfreak" NOT bid on the items I would have been the happy owner of both. This clown from NORWAY has been playing the non-paying or has to be chased to pay crap for years. This in COMMON knowledge in this small community. He has other aliases that he has done the same thing with. How this a-hole hasn't been banished by Ebay I don't understand.

Everyone knows who "galoobfreak is, he's a member on this very site. So let me ask you Mr. NORWAY, what's the deal? Or, which one of your "partners" messed up? WHY the F%&K bid on something and not pay for it or make the seller chase you to get you to pay up??? I'm calling you out, Mr. NORWAY/galoobfreak because your game playing bull$h1te affected ME. I would have won BOTH items, payed as soon as I got the invoice and would have had the items already.

So WHY bid if you aren't gonna pay? Do you get some kinda enjoyment out of your little game? You obviously have money judging by the amount of items you have won so what it the story?

Now I don't expect this clown to respond. He will run to the moderators crying about this post. Let him, it's typical of him. And if anyone needs proof of what I'm saying, I can provide it. Just remember Mr. NORWAY, those who are deep in the community know ALL about your BS games and I can speak for EVEYone we are tired of it. And I have a personal problem with it because I lost out on 2 auctions that I would have won because of you.

Be a MAN, if you bid, PAY UP!! Stop wasting everybody's time. Grow the F#@K up!!!!

This Norway guy bought a NPFF shirt ($400+) from me on Ebay in 2013 and asked me to ship it using USPS flat rate envelop which only provide tracking in USA at that time. Several days later he open a case claiming he didn't receive it and then got his money back! I shipped a lot items to different countries and this is the only one "lost"!

I sold an NPFF jacket to him as well last spring. He claimed he never got it even though it was marked as delivered and got his money back, so I'm out $450. He then bought a $400 tiger stripe shirt from me on eBay and I told him I wouldn't ship it unless he paid me for the NPFF jacket. He replied with he wasn't going to pay for both unless I shipped the tiger stripe shirt to him first. So I did the sensible thing and sold it to someone else the next day. Anyways, this guy is one of the many reasons why I refuse to do anymore international sales.

He asked me twice to sell him stuff outside ebay, having forgotten to bid. No problem to report (except for lengthy pointless emails), but outside ebay I guess he could not use the buyer's protection program to his advantage.

You mean I am not the only seller he screws around with and doesn't pay until you file a non-paying bidder alert on?

I realize this is an old thread but I thought you all would like to know that engstrom miltaria / vigard wasted about 10 days of my time on eBay recently.
Dead beat bidder. What a colossal waste of energy........

What did he bid on?

Thanks for the additional info. I have heard other complaints about this idiot on other forums.

It's UNBELIEVABLE that this clown Vegard is STILL playing his deadbeat games.

He is a complete idiot.
When I called him by name he had the guts to tell me I was incorrect.
Tool.

Galoob/engstrom
Are we sure they are the same guy?
I've had both bid on my items. Galoob is all that that has been said! The other guy is a slack bidder but not certain he The same guy. He takes forever but has followed through.

It's the same person, plus a few other names.

Sometimes he will pay instantly, sometimes he doesn't pay until you file with Ebay, sometimes he doesn't pay at all.

He has tried to threaten us on USMF with lawsuits, because we won't delete Spike's postings over there.

He's a piece of work who has figured out how to play the system and that's how he gets his rocks off.

Grrrr, good to know. Can the other names be posted?
Yes, there are some pretty easy tricks that folks have learned.
Dealers ALWAYS ship to the address on the credit card or paypal account unless you know the buyer!
