On November 18, 2006 I received an email from Andrew Jordan a supposed ebay member and owner of a 1965 Mustang that he was selling on ebay. I had inquired about the car after I had seen the listing had been closed and the car NOT sold. He informed me that he had done that because of a large number of inquiries about the car and he could not respond to them all. He claimed to be in Budapest, Hungary for job purposes and needed to sell the car as it did not meet European requirements and that the car was indeed in the states.. California to be exact, which is where I reside. He told me that he would complete the transaction should I want to buy the car using the ebay vehicle Purchase Protection Program. He said DAS Auto Shippers would be used and he had used both ebay and this shipper successfully before. The information came across on ebay letterhead and email address after the transaction was started, so it appeared to be legitimate. I was even sent an VPP number and an email from [email protected] stating that Andrew Jordan was a verified memeber in good standing. The transaction was done by bank wire transfer and we were told on November 29, 2006 that payment had been confirmed and that the car would be shipping the next day. That is the last we have heard from this seller and needless to say we have NEVER to this day received the car. I have contacted the local police department and they did not file a report or even take a report from me , but they gave me an online web address and told me to report it to the internet crime police, which I did on December 16, 2006. I have heard nothing from this to this day. I contacted our bank and tried to stop the funds on December 11, 2006 to begin a recall and to stop the funds from being released. I was told a few days later the money had been released and that they could give me no information on the persons name, address, bank account information or anything and that they could not help me. I contacted local FBI and was told this was not their jurisdiction. I have contacted the local District Attorneys office and told the same thing. It is very frustrating to say the least. And while $7000.00 may not seem like alot to some people it was for us. No one seems to care of will take any responsibility to help us get the monies back. Oh yeah, I had contacted ebay and tried to get some help from them only to be told that this person had supposedly reported their ebay account to have been hijacked. YEAH right, what a coincidence. They had no warning about this and they did not contact us after to tell us this. It would have been an easy thing for them to do as they could see the email addys of all who bid on or responded to this item for sale on their website. If you can do anything, anything at all to help us it would be greatly appreciated. We need to have this resolved, our money back and the person responsible for this crime is prosecuted.
