    just to end this agonizing discourse:

    Yes, you were right.

    Gee, I wish I were as smart as you.

    Now you can toss in the final cut and we can get back on topic.

    Now now...just because he was right does not give you the right to say so!

    Sheesh...you're going to give him get a bigger head than he aready has -- and from what I've heard, he already has a hard time walking through a standard doorway because of it.

    apparently we were going to continue to subject unsuspecting passers-by to the continued analysis of a single question that had little to do with the topic.

    if you're stuck in the cage with the animal, sometimes the only hope is to toss a little raw meat in the other corner to distract them.

    Feel free to keep posting your opinions...or if you are aware of similar scams. I'd love to read them.
    What kind of feedback does he have on eBay? That might help me to decide. If the rest of his transactions appear to have gone smoothly, I could see giving him the benefit of the doubt.

    Also, other than saying he was uncooperative, you never said what, if any, excuse he offered you for reporting it stolen. Or, does he deny it?

    Finally, for 7 months worth of grief, during which he was no help, you should feel entitled to some relief. Over the course of those seven months, during which you had no use of the phone, how much would the price have dropped? I would take that into consideration. It's only fair. Even if he was clean in all this, you lost seven months; he should be willing to compromi$e, too.

    Wow, what a thread. The moral of the story, folks, is that people on the internet can be real jerks sometimes.





    Now let's get back on track and talk about the eBay scammer.

    It is an interesting story, kind of reminds me of that stolen sidekick website..

    Personally I would not give the guy any money, he tried to scam you and it backfired.. hopefully he learnt his lesson..

    Did you use a CC on the original purchase ? I know PP says you can't do it, but why not just report to the cc company and reverse the charge (if it is a scam) ?

    Thanks for quoting me when issuing a spanking, but my post was actually in response to taking off-topic shots from a third party, when posting on topic. I agree with staying on topic, but please do not point to me when referencing the issue. If someone takes a shot, I will gladly return the favor. Close the thread if you have an issue, not sure what the or what is...

    ON-Topic:

    I don't see how you have reason to consider sending it back. While I think the best idea I've heard is to check the guy/gals feedback to see if he's got primarily positive feedback, all that would do for me (if I were in your shoes) is make me feel slightly guilty for not returning it. 7 months of your time and the confication of your funds for that amount of time suggests to me that you were "out" something in the process. This guy obviously screwed up some how and for him not to have to pay for his mistakes doesn't seem right.

    Off-topic:

    As far as I read it, you're the one with the attitude problem. I think ToolkiT chose the right quote of yours to indicate as much. Whining to the mods to "Close the thread if you have an issue" is childish. And believe me...I'm an expert in being childish.

    Wow, some people always have to have the last word...
