James Arwine Ripoff artist


Recommended Posts

Hey folks

 

Everyone here knows all about James Arwine being the biggest jackass ripoff artist on ebay in a very long time.....His list of names/alias's are as long as stretch of Highway between Vegas and LA......I received word from someone who shall remain nameless right now, who was recently ripped off by MR. Arwine under yet another name, but the address went right back to Red Lion, Pa..........There are more and more things coming to light about this guy, so everyone be on the lookout when looking at stuff on Ebay (as most of us are anyway) because i would hate to see any of my fellow traders/friends scammed by this jackass.........Like it was stated in a different post, we really need a spot here at HH to place "Shady Sellers" where everyone can read it and be up to date on sellers.......

 

I know at least one more member here on the HH boards heard from the same person on Ebay......When i get more info i will pass it on to everyone.......

 

Take care

The day someone finds James' carcass in a shallow ditch wont come soon enough :2up:

 

I really wish eBay will make it so the seller can see the bidder's info once a bid is placed. It will save A LOT of trouble for everyone if we can see this BEFORE the auction's end!

Oh yeah it is definately him...........From the info on ebay his newest ID was just made May-15-05 and he already has 2 negatives, and like ypsmusic said, he tells the sellers he can not pay for a month.....Then why bid........It makes no sense.....

 

But apparently he is not only scamming people on Ebay, he has defrauded some other people for $1000's of dollars for others things too.......This dude needs to be locked away for a long time.......I will give more details about him very soon.....

James Arwine has more emergencies than anyone on the planet! He always has an excuse why he can't pay, and it is always a month delay, I have some folks who need a week, and that is fine, but a month is crazy. He probably doesn't make enough money to support his habit of buying cd's, but can't stop himself from bidding. crazy dude!

I've been down this route with him many times... needles to say he never lives up to his word, so save yourself the hassle, go ahead and request FVF (if eBay had fixed the annoying bug with the pulldown menues from yesterday :)

I don't see why eBay just can't take legal action against him so by law, he cannot register another name. He's already proven time and again that all he'll do is commit fraud. :2up:

Just to update, I emailed a couple of the sellers that he was bidding on, and he has bids were canceled and he was blocked from bidding on anymore of their auctions, he was also reported to Ebay, don't know what good it is going to do, but at least we saved some folks from the hassle of dealing with this 2-finger jackoff.........

This may be a stupid question but what clues do you look for to know that this guy is James Arwine?

Thanks, I couldn't find what city he was registered in. All I could find was "Location: United States".

I can't figure out why the guy keeps getting away with what he is doing. You would think eBay would do something like having the town name flagged and when a new member used it they would check it to make sure it's not a rip off artist. But I guess that would make too much sense.

Well...he didn't list his home town on this new username, but most of the other "Symptoms" are there <_<

I got hit by the guy as well.I just now realized it as I was reading this thread.He got the highest bid on my Hurricane Over The Edge CD last week($26.00)and he emailed a few days after the auction and said almost the same thing someone else posted about having car trouble,can't pay until around the middle of July,etc.What kind of kick does this guy get off of bidding on stuff then not paying for it?

If he's been NLARU'd, then notify eBay and get your listing fee back and relist it. He can't do anything since he's been booted under this name. Don't even bother waiting if this is the fucktard who "won" your auction. Was he using this name or did he have another? If so, list it here for us so we can keep track of him. Thanks :drink:

Unfortunately, Mr. Arwine isn't the only person who employees the technique of bidding on everything in site, and then selectively paying for his purchases...he just happens to be very BAD at it, and very easy to spot. There are at least one or two other people that I know of who do the exact same thing, but are actually fairly crafty at it.

Here's how the process works:

 

1. Sign up for a squeeky clean new eBay ID

2. Bid on every rare CD in freaking site!

3. Actually pay for the CDs you win from several well known sellers such as

www-kissmydisc-com, metalmayhemmusic, surrf, etc... to establish some feedback and keep the big sellers happy so that they don't turn against you

4. Start requesting that your bids be cancelled on some of the other high dollar CDs that you're winning

5. Start sending excuses as to why you can't pay for your winnings to the other schmoes you've decided to screw

6. Get yet another squeeky clean new eBay ID

7. Go and un-register the current ID being used when all the negative feedbacks start rolling in...

8. Go back to step 2 and work through the process again...

 

It's sad that eBay can be manipulated in this way, but it happens more than even most of us here realize.

Something else that is happening more and more is "Paypal Fraud"......What i mean is, people paying via Paypal, then once they receive the item filing a claim saying they never received it........Delivery Confirmation is one way to keep that from happening, but on an International Shipment there is nothing to keep you from getting burnt........Even if you ship it "Registered", you can still be burnt.......I had it happen to me a few short months ago.........I had(or thought i had) all my ducks in a row so to speak, even where the guy in the UK signed for it....Still with Paypal it was a no go, they still refunded the money even with proof it was delivered and HE SIGNED for it.............I look forward to the new "Google Payment System" which is suppose to start up soon, and i hope it is not another Paypal fiasco........

You and me both. I've started using a "No PayPal from non-U.S. buyers" policy.

 

Yeah, yeah, I know... I'm a "bad American" who is prejudiced against non-Americans, blah, blah, blah. Well, until PayPal actually steps up and protects U.S. sellers on international transactions, it's cash, USPS money order, or BidPay.

 

No likee? Too bad.

It has been NLARU'd,it was musicfan045.You know I got to thinking after my last post about someone that bought a couple of CD's off me a month and half or so ago,he emailed me and said he was strapped for cash but he really wanted the CD's and he would pay me at the end of the month if I could hold them,me being the nice guy I am I said yes I would,thinking I wouldn't get paid,but sure enough he paid me at the end of the month through Paypal.Anyways I went back and checked my records and it was the same guy!His ID at the time was hrdrckrma.Good thing I use Delivery Confirmation or he would have filed for a refund with PP and got his money and the CD's.

    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
