        Galoob/engstrom

        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.

            Very nice unit , almost mint.

            https://www.ebay.com/itm/23281885390...84.m1558.l2649

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

                They ALWAYS will. To protect the guilty scumbag who doesn't have the balls to come on here and try and explain his BS.

                  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.

                        He is still active as of this weekend, I have his other user names blocked but he sneaked in with this ID which only has 45 items on the feedback. This is a new ID of his and not his most recently used one "engstrom-military".

                        engstrom-militaria

                        On this eBay user ID he has made his feedback private.

                        As with the "engstrom-military" he is using the "Steve Bakke" of Anniston, AL shipping address.

                            Below is the most current information I can put together on him. Posting this as this guy has cost honest collectors and dealers tens of thousands of dollars with his activities over the course of years now.

                            Known names he has used for opening eBay accounts and linked to PayPal accounts-

                            Vegard Larsen
                            Vivian Larsen

                            Location he has used for eBay and PayPal accounts-

                            Drammen, Norway

                            Known suspended eBay user names of his-

                            Val-84
                            Macv-musuem
                            Galoobfreak

                            Known active eBay user names of his-

                            engstrom-militaria
                            https://www.ebay.com/usr/engstrom-militaria

                            engstrom-military
                            https://www.ebay.com/usr/engstrom-military

                            US shipping address he has used before and currently-

                            Steve Bakke
                            Anniston, AL

                            He may have possibly surfaced on a Vietnam Collectors Facebook page lately, but not confirmed.

                              Thank you for the additional info. The fact his feedback is now private says a lot about his shadiness.

                                eBay

                                If it wasn't for the occasional sweet deal on something the seller misidentifies I would give up on eBay as they refuse to allow a negative feedback regardless of how raw of a deal you get. I bought an item for $85 on a "Buy It Now" then after two weeks I messaged the seller to say the expected delivery date had passed, he messaged back that he would ship it soon, then I saw he had relisted the item for more money, I filed a complaint with Paypal and eventually got my money back but eBay wouldn't allow me to post negative feedback.
                                I did get a nearly pristine 44 dated German mess kit recently for $16 that was listed as a "Vintage Dinner Bucket" which is why I still monitor eBay.
