  • This Weeks Discogs Problem - impulse1972

    On the 13th I bought a mint copy of Alan Hawkshaw & Brian Bennett's Synthesizer And Percussion on Themes International for the good price of £60.

    I received this email yesterday saying:

    I tried to send you a refund but paypal blocked me i don't know why...So please put a reclamation via paypal and you will get your money.Don't worry i'm not a thief just a new no lucky seller !!!
    Sorry again for this message
    i hope you will understand my mind
    Hope you will buy others records from me in the future
    cheers robert
    To be honest I thought he'd received a better price from someone else after I bought it but after looking at his recent feedback it seems he's done this to others:

    I've put in a PayPal dispute to hopefully sort it out but I thought I best let others know.

    Anybody else had problems like this before?

    Does make me wonder why he doesn't just got into Nigerian Prince scam-spam emailing? The market for Alan Hawkshaw collectors to rip off must be pretty small.

    Hope you get your money back.

        Ha agreed, I did wonder why they chose that record for it. I mean if I was doing a scam I'd go for something like Big Beat or Feelings etc. I did have a quick search online and apparently impulse1972 also has a Plenty of Fish dating profile in Frankfurt.

        It seems I'm being scammed by a cougar.

        Very true, I was a bit too eager.

          Perhaps you could arrange some kind of cougar dating scenario in lieu of a refund? Think of the possibilities!

            The thought has crossed my mind, though that could be a scam as well and I'd be in Frankfurt on a date with a man called Robert.

              Here's my favourite buyer's feedback again. Commitment to bad buying.

                Synthesizer And Percussion has got Oddball on it, right? Great stuff.

                  Yep that's the one! Usually I'd check the feedback but I bought it whilst on the way to work so didn't pay as much attention as I should have.

                  Just received an email from Discogs:

                  I'll just have to wait and see what PayPal say.

                      You know, I've wondered about this before. Plenty of people go to ChequeCashbackGlorifiedPawnshop type places and get short term loans with high interest. What's to stop people "selling" expensive records on Discogs or eBay, letting a few weeks go by, saying the record is missing/broken whatever and then refunding the money, once their wages have come in?

                      Maybe I have a criminal mindset, but with a firm moral code in place...

                        Sometimes you just need to send the boys 'round!

                        That keeps you from being a part of it all
                        Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                        You've just got to be close to it all

                          Excellent news, PayPal have found in my favour and have reclaimed my money. I just need to pay a bit more attention in future.
