    A frame showed back up for sale I sold in Okt 19.
    The seller is claiming he bought it from Pista Mercato (@Kobe). That’s who I sold it to. Problem is he claimed the frame never arrived and tracking was unclear. He got his money back via PayPal and I had to fight half a year for my money until I got papers from DHL , which confirm that the frame was delivered to Pista Mercato. Ebay listing is claiming he bought it in January/February but I was able to get my money back in March, while Pista Mercato was still claiming he never got the frame. This was a really frustrating attempt to scam me and even with PayPal I had to struggle hardly.

  • Hello Oliver?

    First i wanted to say that i am just as surprised as your are.
    I have made a attempt to buy the Faggin pursuit frame from in dec 2019.
    You made shipment with DHL and after a week i send you a message to ask about the tracking info.
    This didnt went well
    and the parcel never got deliverd .
    We agreed on a research by DHL and i had all the patience.

    After almost 2 months i opened a claim with paypal and afterwards this turned out in my favour.
    And immediatly i said if the frame gets deliverd i will send you back your 282,- Euro.

    Now we are almost a year further and the frame showed up on ebay
    and as i said before i am also very suprised..
    I cannot sell a frame i never had in my hands.

    I am sorry if DHL tells you it got deliverd when it was not deliverd.
    And it would also not make any sense to scam any person for any amount of money with the reputation i build up.

    Its also very sad to see that this "new Owner" uses my name to sell your frame
    But i guess the bigger the three the more wind it cathches.

    I dont know how you adressed the box to me
    The only thing i can think of is that you wrote PistaMercato on the box and my adress ?
    Anyway it doesnt matter now

    Now i understand you made this post
    And i contacted the person who has the frame on ebay
    I bought the frame .
    And i will send it back to you

    But i rather come to Germany and bring you the frame by hand ( if corona Covid will alow to travel abroad )

    I am very sorry for this situation
    And i as said late december 2019 , if the frame showes up at my place i will send it back to you.

    And after you get the frame back you can decide yoursellf what you want to do with that.

    I will start a investigation on my side afterwards to try and understand what happend with the parcel.
    But atm i find it very important that you get your frame back Oliver.

    I just want to make clear that i never had the frame nor did sold it to somebody else

    I will send you a message to ask your info and phone number so we finish this.

    Sincerely Kobe

  • And i contacted the person who has the frame on ebay

    Well thats a suprisngly nice turn of events, hopefully it turns out to be true

  • Hey Kobe,

    You bought the frame on 30th September 2019 and paypal send you your money back on 2nd December 2019. I got papers from DHL in March, which say the frame was delivired on 22th October 2019. A year later the frame shows up and it can't be an coincedence he was naming you in his listing. And now you're buying the frame, without even considering asking, where he got the frame from ? Sorry mate, but this is rather weird and it is hard to believe at this point.

    But I'm happy for you, you finally got your hands on the frame and feel free to do , whatever you want to do with it. Im happy with the money I got for it, half a year later :)

    Btw the Parcel was adressed with PistaMercato / Ken B*******, as given on paypal.

  • If the frame was never delivered, and the seller got their money back via PayPal - eventually, why would the buyer who supposedly never received the frame, contact someone they don't know where the frame has mysteriously appeared for sale, then buy it back and return to the original seller.

    If they never received it, it's fuck all to do with them surely.

    Either the eBay account is a shill account, or he sold it to the person 'off grid' and they've latterly dropped him bang in it by stating where they sourced it.

    If giving this chump any benefit of doubt, its likely there was a mix up on the tracking and they saw a chance to get the frame for free, expecting that the seller would get a refund too - i.e. committing fraud.

    This person is a fraudster, has been caught and needs banning from the forum.
