This guy has just changed his username from 123-captainkirk to dirtysocks88.
He duped me out of £300 for a fake bayswater. He also duped others who I have been in contact with and they all got their money back through paypal too.
It baffles me as to why Ebay has not suspended this seller...they have removed many of his listings while he used the username '123-captainkirk' for 'breaching their policies'...i.e., selling counterfeit handbags.
Anyway, I keep an eye out for 123-captainkirk on Ebay now and I am doing my best to get this fraudulent seller suspended after what he did to me and others.
I have just noticed that he has changed his username TODAY to dirtysocks88, which makes me think that he is about to sell some more bags this weekend.
So keep an eye out for dirtysocks88 and if he's selling anything fraudulent, PLEASE report him to Ebay.
I'm sure the ladies on the AT thread will help identify if items are fake.

Thanks.

How typical of Ebay to allow this sort of thing - you'd think they could somehow 'track' them re having same personal info etc (though tbh, I can't remember how much info you have to give Ebay when you set up an account - perhaps there lies the problem....)

Thanks for the warning! I just don't understand why Ebay doesn't block sellers like these??

Hi ladies,
yes have posted this on the ebay forum too.
he seems to sell only fake Mulberry.
And yes, thankfully I got my money back.
Just watch out for him! He's a real scammer!

Huge thanks for this Blondie lady. So glad you got your money back....must cost EBay billions in refunding people so why not do a bit more to prevent it in the first place? Most odd.
