Thank you for the info. Hope everything goes well
If I remember correctly, if your Paypal account is not fully verified, you can't have more than a certain amount of sales per year... I know this because I sold a lot this past summer and one day, Paypal restricted my account with payments and withdraws I might did, until I sent them some ID and address proof (ID card, utility bill, etc)... It's explained here:Yes, ARKADY is the person I spoke to via email so that is how I got his email. At first, he told me to send the money to his PayPal account so I sent him the $2,100. I also sent him about $400 for other items that I wanted to buy from him which were stickers, sticker sheets, and some packets. But the next day after I paid him, he refunded me all of the money because he said he was having problems with his PayPal account. He said that PayPal had placed a hold on the money that I sent him due to the amount so he refunded me and told me to send the money to a list of emails that he gave me (I sent you a list of the emails, let me know if you got them).
Anyway, Roberto... That's a very important tip to anyone when analyzing an ebay feedback as a buyer: look first for the "feedback as a seller" tab and if he hasn't any, then you can also check the feedback he left to sellers, to see if he's some guy who gives more "bad" feedbacks than usual.Hello,
Yes you are completely right. The guy seemed nice from the beginning and he seemed like an honest trader so I fell for it.
In regards to his feedback, yes I see what you mean. Everything is from purchases that he made. None of them were from sales.
i am just glad that I was able to stop him in time and I got my money back. I still lost all the items that I sent him but now I have learned my lesson. So I will not let this happen again. Thank you for your support and for taking the time to explain everything. All of the members in this forum are very nice and I appreciate all of the advice. Please make sure that you block both of his eBay accounts. Another victim of this scam messaged me yesterday and told me that this guy has 2 eBay accounts, which I have updated on my eBay listing. They are “070911gleb” and "borodkin1981".
I am a passionate collector just like everyone that enjoys this page. Today I would like to discuss a very important topic with everyone. This is regarding thief and fraudulent sellers on eBay and any other websites. Today I had a horrible experience after I purchased a Panini 1970 Mexico Complete Album from a seller on eBay.
About 7 weeks ago, a seller with the eBay user name of “070911gleb” contacted me though eBay and told me that he was interested in making a trade for several panini items. We talked for a little bit on eBay and then he suggested that we talk through email so he sent me his email. After talking for a few days, we agreed on a list of items that we would exchange with each other. We also agreed on some items that I wanted to buy from him and one of them was the original Panini 1970 Mexico Complete Album. The seller offered to sell me the album for $2,100.
During the transaction, I seller asked me to send him the $2,100 in various payments to different PayPal accounts. He sent me a list of 5 PayPal accounts and he told me to send different amounts to each account so that the total would add up to $2,100. After I sent the payments, I continued to speak with him through email and he sent me the tracking number for the album. I continued to check the tracking number every day and everything seemed fine because it was on its way to my location. However, on the day of delivery, the package got sent back to the seller in Ukraine because there was a problem with the address. So I had to wait 2 more weeks until the item got returned to Ukraine and then the seller resent me album once again. Today, I got a notice from USPS saying that the album could not be delivered because there was a problem with the address. I immediately went to the post office and I was able to get the package there. When I looked at the package, I noticed that my address was written incorrectly (this was not an accident). As soon as I looked at the package, I could tell that I was being robbed because the person sent me a small envelope and when I opened it, it had a small piece of cardboard inside.
After everything that had happened, I was able to figure out everything that the seller did to rob me and other people as well. Since I was buying the album from this thief, he used my money to rob other people and then sent me a piece of cardboard in order to buy time so that I would not open a case on all of the payments that I sent him.
He told me to send money to different accounts and at the same time, he was using that money to buy panini items from other sellers on eBay. When the people received my payments (which were supposed to be the payments for my album), the thief told these people to ship other panini items to his address in Ukraine instead of the address that was on my PayPal account. During this time, the thief wrote my address incorrectly on the package so that it could not be delivered and this would buy him more time.
Today, I opened a case on PayPal to have my money returned and unfortunately the money that is being returned to me is from other people’s accounts that had nothing to do with this. This thief tricked all of us, and now a lot of people lost a lot of money and panini items. Along with the money that I paid this person, I also sent him several panini items that we were supposed to trade so I also lost a lot of items from my collection.
Below is all of the information that I have about this thief:

This is his email firstname.lastname@example.org
This is eBay user name is: 070911gleb
I have also attached a picture of this person on this message. I found this picture on his profile from the website below. There are 2 people on the photo so I am not which one he is but he is one of the person's on this picture.
This is his website showing pictures of his collection and all of the items that he wanted to “trade” with me and he contacted me:
This person has a 100% positive feedback on eBay but do not be fooled by this. He is a complete liar and thief and he stole thousands of dollars worth of items from me and many other people that were involved in this scam. Do not do any business with him at all, whether he is buying, selling or trading with you. If anyone knows this person or knows any more information about this person please let me know because PayPal is investigating this case and I want to provide them with as much information as possible.
Please be very careful when you buy items online and follow the guides provided by Pavle on this website on how to buy items safely online. If you have any questions or comments about this person please let me know.
