Has anyone ever dealt with this guy before?
« on: April 22, 2019, 07:00:59 AM »

He is on Kijiji from Ottawa goes by He-man but his reply to me came back as Dudeman Guy,
He has put the same lot of figures up twice now but used different photographs.
I responded to his ad about a month ago and asked if he used Paypal but then said he doesn't use paypal.
This led me to believe he takes E-transfer but without paypal there is no guarantee.
Then the ad disappeared a few days later.
Now it's back up there a few weeks later!

He has so many figures I need but, i just can't risk it.

Anyone have any feedback at all on this guy?

It's possible he wants to use etransfer to protect himself against getting defrauded e.g. if someone paid him using paypal, he sent out the items, then that person could claim they never received the goods and get a refund, while paypal then takes the cash out of his paypal account to pay the refund.

Ask him if he's on any of the collector forums and if he has positive feedback on there. Then join that forum, and send him a message to make sure that it's actually the same person. Otherwise, I'd be very reluctant to etransfer any money to someone on kijiji.

I'm wondering if this is the guy I messaged in the summer.
I went to Dunrobin for a week (Near Ottawa), and worked out a deal with a guy for all his stuff. He said I could do e-transfer... When I said I'd be picking it up in person in 3 days, since I was coming up there for a week, he replied the next day saying it was sold to someone local.

Two weeks later - the EXACT ad showed up there again.
clearly a scam.

Yes, I'm sure it's the same guy with the same lot of figures, really nice set includes final 17 as well.
I even book marked the old link and the new one.
If it's too good to be true then it is.

Post the photo in here. It'll be a good heads up for others online.

Just checked, it's gone again, I'm pretty relentless when it comes to looking for Vintage and Vintage Collection figures on Kijiji so if I ever see it again I will do just that.
