Bad eBay buyer: cdkarl2005 , beware


Recommended Posts

This guy is some serious quack!

He never contacted me, nor paid, so after 3 weeks or so I started the FVF refund process. ON the 27th day, in the very last minute of the grace period erBay gives for responding to the FVF, this twat paid me via unconfirmed PayPal account, and on top on that requested his CDs to be shipped to a different mailing address. Yet he DID NOT respond to the FVF

 

Accepting such unconfirmed LATE payment with instructions to send to outside mailing address rang a huge warning bell for me, so I said "no thanks, your CDs are no longer available" (which is true btw as they went to other interested buyers already), and immediately refunded his payment.

Then on the next morning I accomplished the FVF (he failed to respond within the 8 days required period, so I was able to complete the process and receive the refunds).

 

Now, as you can imagine this sent him straight into the sky, and now he pestering eBay AND threathening to give me negative if I dont removie his non-paying bidder strike immediately... I usually would laugh at such phony threats, but given what horror stories I've read here recently one starts to wonder if eBay could somehow screw me in this twat's fawor... <_<

 

So beware

Since you refunded his payment and Ebay granted you the FVF, there is not anything he can do. He did not respond within the alotted days so that is his problem. I always avoid buyers who want something sent to a "different" address unless i know them. I would just forward all the info over to Ebay's Safe Harbor with his threats etc. And that will cover you all the way around....

I thought I was the only one who was going to have a problem with this guy.....I bought "CANNON--THUNDER AND LIGHTNING" from him, and I sent his payment a couple of days after the auction's end. Wouldnt you know, he emailed through ebay three times about the payment not getting there. And I tried to explain the first go round about how long it takes for a payment to get from here to whereever the hell he was at. He started asking me how come I didnt use Western Union. To my knowlege, WU is expensive, and should not be used on ebay unless you know the seller. And besides I never used WU before. Money Gram either. I can understand his concern for getting his payment. Good seller, but a little nerveracking. Eventually he got the payment.....and then left good feedback for me hoping I buy from him again soon....I don't know if I should or not. If I do, I probably will get another dose of the same medicine.

Anyone whose has been on ebay for awhile can pretty much see the signs and should do what they need to protect themselves. I would have done the same thing and at this point I wouldnt worry to much whether he leaves negative or not. Ebay or Paypal are going to do what they want either way so I would do what you think is best for you.

My listings as you have probably already seen are pretty basic. Either contact me within 3 days or I expect payment in 7. After 7 I file the NPA and 7 days later the FV. I definetly would not remove the bidders strike under any circumstance. If payment cant be made in 14 days I figure they desrve it.

Yep, i'll wait to see if eBay will take his moans seriously and contact me before forwarding his e-mails to the safe harbour. eBay is a mess and I prefer to stay away unless it is absolutely necessary to get involved.

I agree with you, and my policies are very open. In general I wait 3 weeks to receive a payment and then file for NPA/FVF. If a buyer contacts me and ask for extra time, I always agree and try to be helpful (well, in case he is not james arWhine of course).

 

But if I havent received the payment within 3 weeks NOR havent heard form the buyer, then the deal is off and I may not accept late payments if I dont feel I like to, that simple. If they dont like it, too bad, try Amazon instead. :)

This guy wants his money right away, yet he never pays or takes his sweet time. I had to threaten him with negative feedback if payment wasn't sent, finally paid after over a month. Piss me off, I forgot to block the bidder, still has to pay for another item he just won. Look at his feedback now. Not the most trustworthy is an understatement.

Here is an update on my lastest transaction with cdkarl2005, like he did zacharyamelie, he took over 3 weeks to pay me, then paid me with paypal on the 24th, but yesterday I got a notice that paypal was holding his payment.....so I called paypal and they told me, "they couldn't tell me what was wrong with his account" but they did say it was probably he paid me with a bank account that had insuffient funds....he was supposed to clear this up by calling them..I got the austrian/german number for paypal and put him onto it.....but paypal still has my funds in hold....shitty thing is I sent the cd's the day before but I have not told him that, if he knows he is getting the cd's without paying I might be screwed....I will let everyone know what happens, but he is now blocked from my auctions, 3 weeks to pay then his payment turns out lame, I have had enough!!! :angry:

I told you guys he is a quack. Did he speaks to you in gibbersh like Tarzan from the jungle when you ask him something inconvenient, and then suddenly would get his English miraculously sorted out when something doesnt go his way?

 

Way uncool guy, I'm sure I'd have gotten the same paypal treatment if I havent rejected his payment...

This guy is a little "James Arvine" from Ausria.

Big buyer, but unfortunately an absolute "slow payer" with a few blackouts > "I have forgotten to pay the Cds "<. :anon: blablabla.

He also had already a few ebay usernames and I'm sure he will end his current very soon.

Poor boy!!! :blink:

cdkarl2005 is Thomas Reisinger of Austria.....many of you are familiar with him. In my last auction, I had to file a non paying bidder alert on him, after which he did respond and make payment with paypal. I was lucky this time around........

 

I've had transactions with him previously, but I've got to try an avoid him in the future. A close friend of mine "smiley1969" just got hit with a Paypal notice similiar to Mike Butt stating the payment of $57 was being held and investigated by paypal. Trouble is, the payment arrived Nov 24 and my friend sent the CDs the very next day. Then, Nov 28 Paypal decides to have an investigation and freeze the funds.......

 

I'm not sure what is going on, but this is another fellow you want to be wary of.....he is also a SELLER who offers some super rare titles !!!!

 

So even if you aren't a seller, if you buy on E Bay, beware of this guy!

This may be a stupid question, but why would anyone keep their feedback 'private'? Unless you have something to hide, that is. I don't understand why eBay would even give you the option of doing it? People are automatically going to mis-trust anyone that isn't open about it, I assume...

Kinda late to decide to keep your feedback private. Do it from the start, not all of a sudden after accumulating 11 negative feedbacks in a month.

 

Too bad there's no smilies of Forman's dad from that 70's Show, saying ''Dumbass''.

Here is another one of his e bay ID's ...... redkatalin2005

 

You want to block this one because it is still active. His cdkarl2005 has been yanked.... 14 negative feedbacks already this month!!!!

 

If you look at the feedback on his redkatalin2005 ID, you'll notice that he gave himself feedback using cdkarl2005 when he first signed up......isn't that something?

 

What I can't understand is, with all the technology at hand, why can't E Bay and PayPAL cross reference these people who continually sign up using new ID's after being suspended for ripping people off. All they need do is properly verify their Credit Cards, names, addresses and bank accounts.......

 

They need to verify that people are who they say they are and can provide adequate identification before allowing them to participate.......

Its called shillbidding and is forbidden by ebay rules. But then ebay had proved they tend to close thir eyes for some bad stuff, and yet overjumped the gun for something absolutely pointless. Thus scumbags like James arWHINE will always be permitted to make new accounts using the very same name adn address and credit card. It is just good for ebay business I guess

 

thanks for the heads up on redkatalin2005. I'm about ready to post some cool AOR/Melodic stuff on ebay and people like karl or jamez would be the first to come and screw. Now at least I can block karl temporarily

    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
