Internet Detective Required to catch UK Parts Scammer jwautos77@hotmail.com

Internet Detective Required to catch UK Parts Scammer

I buy loads of eBay and in the past 10 years haven't had a single issue. That was until recently when I purchased various bits and bobs from a breaker. Unfortunately for me the seller [Chris] encouraged me to send the money via PayPal outside of eBay in the form of a friends and family transaction. You can guess that the seller hasnít sent me the parts, nor is he replying to my messages or emails.

EBay and PayPal are advising they can't help as I did the deal outside of eBay and PayPal won't cover me as I sent it via F&F. Citizens advice have suggested I raise a Small Claims court action which I'm fine with but the issue is I donít have an address to serve the documents to.

So, do we have anyone out there who is rather handy on the internet and can find the address details for:

ebay seller: 77jwautos

Jwautos77@hotmail.com

Kimberley Davison Ė [PAYPAL ACCOUNT NAME]

Location Cleveland

Paypal Mobile: 07*****4288 (i got this from paypal but dont have the full number)

Thanks for this. How did you tie the address to the details provided above?

Im guessing the seller uses his partners paypal account hence its a female.

That comes up as a fairly respectable looking detached house if you put the address into Google maps and look at street view

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.52...7i13312!8i6656

Satellite view shows nothing untoward out the back , so either the wrong address , or they have other premises

Perhaps you could enquire re collection, and if he says yes, buy a low cost item e.g.:

FIAT PUNTO MK2 MK2B REAR SPOILER 99-05 BLACK | eBay

Then ask for collection address......?

It is this place as my best guess:

Thought of that, but figured he wouldn'tshate his addrwss with me as i only have one ebay accunt. I also thought about buying an item then asking to return it - in order to get the address.
