Post Victim of a scam as a buyer? Start here....
Ring your local Police station and make an appointment to see a CID officer - don’t frustrate yourself by arguing your case with a desk clerk in reception - they are instructed to dismiss cases of 'fraudulent payment' as civil matters. (Fewer 'open' cases look better to the bureaucrats.) From the circumstances as outlined it's a clear case of Fraud by false representation which is a criminal offense under Section 2 of the Fraud Act 2006.

The Police Officer that you speak to will hopefully be aware of eBay - almost every UK Police Station now has at least one specialist Officer knowledgeable about online fraud and e-crime - however it is possible that they won't be available. (They tend to get overworked at certain times of the year, so bear this in mind.)

Just in case the detective you speak to isn't up to speed with eBay, bring these contact details with you - they will need them to contact eBay UK.

Email: law-enforcement@ebay.com
Fax: 0207 6812389
http://pages.ebay.co.uk/safetycentre/la ... ement.html

Bring hard copies of any emails you have received in relation to the auction, if possible make sure these emails display the all the headers. If you don’t know how - ask. Email headers contain vital clues in tracking down online criminals.

Printed copy of eBay auction(s)
Printed copy of payment details and payment reversal notice
Printed copies of posting and/or delivery details
Printed copies of all email between you and the buyer or other victims of buyer
Printed copies of notes of any telephone conversations you have had with buyer, PayPal or eBay.

All this should be logged as evidence so you'll be able to refer to it in any subsequent court proceedings.

You should also make sure that you can supply the Police with the user names of other victims, together with the item numbers of all the sales. Remember, you are building a case that can’t be dismissed as a civil matter - bear in mind that third party emails won’t be accepted. Emails forwarded to one member from another victim cannot be considered as part of your complaint so don’t waste time gathering them. Rather coordinate with other victims and get them to supply printed copies to their local CID once you get a crime number.

Once you have received a crime number be prepared to relay it to any of the other victims you are able to contact. They can add that information to the details they supply to the Officer who takes their report.

You may not get restitution, but the seller's details will be recorded and may permit a prosecution (and compensation) at a later date.
