    A word of warning

    Post  Kevin D on Mon Dec 22, 2014 5:13 pm

    Just a word of warning.

    If you are a visitor to our Facebook site you may recall seeing an advert for a Darnell T Class and a Vanguard being offered for sale by a James W O'Hara. I actually paid for the T Class on the 27th November but it never arrived so I am now £120 pounds out of pocket, I'm hoping no one else was caught out by this. I was given excuse after excuse as to why I hadn't received it and then this morning all contact was broken as the guys Facebook page was taken down. I have reported this fraud to the police but don't hold out any hope of getting my money or the sub. So please if this guy or anyone else for that matter offers anything for sale in the future and asks for payment to be made by bank transfer don't fall for it, I've learnt the hard way.

    Thats rather bad!

    In my experience Ebay are good at sorting out problems - any joy?

    Would your advice now be to distrust payments by any other means than credit card, Paypal or cash "on the nail?

    Hope it gets sorted out for you.

    Unfortunately this wasn't through ebay it was just an advert placed on the AMS and Dive in Facebook pages.

    Definitely only make payment by the means you suggest and not a money transfer.

    I don't hold out much hope of the Police doing too much about this even though I was able to provide quite comprehensive details about the fraudster.

    So I now have wait and build up my model money pot again so I can try and buy another submarine.
