Hi all,

I sent AU $3000 via Western Union to a person going by the name of ANTHON KRIEGSMAN for the purchase of a VX2100 video camera on July 29 2004. I found the camera on ebay and made him an offer by email. He cancelled the ebay advert and agreed to my offer saying he would send the camera express from his address below. After confirming reciept of $3000, he said he would send the package. I heard from him a couple of days later by email saying his nephew was unwell and the package would be delayed a couple of days. I never heard from him again nor did I received the package.

As usual, he seemed like an honest and friendly person from his email exchanges.
This is another obvious warning of the reality of ripoff "business" men on the internet. So just thought I would let you know of my sobering experience.
It was VERY STUPID of me to send this money knowing that it can be stolen in this way.

His full details are below that he gave me (cut and paste from his email):

ANTHON KRIEGSMAN
258 GREEN LANE
ZIP : IG1 1YF
ILFORD , ESSEX, UK.

email address:
Ebay identity: wiek146

Also, does anyone know of any web sites which publish details of people who are fraudelent in their business dealings. It would be good to put the word out there.

Thanks

Rob

While your post is OT, I reply in order to propagate the headers so that people know that you are part of the problem. What you participated in was against the ebay rules, therefore you aren’t going to get any help from them, so you come whining to us. TOO BAD! Now go away.

Good point – I missed it upon first reading.
Maybe the guy has ripped off the OP, but the OP has ripped off Ebay. By moving outside Ebay the OP also loses any protection and/or backup that Ebay may offer. Hard luck matey, do it properly next time.
