Paypal found in my favour with the dispute but Dannyboy had emptied the sweety jar. Paypal will not refund if there is nothing in his paypal account/s with which to make the refund.

A decent fellow at "outboardspares unlimited" pointed me in the direction of this forum.

There is also a new ebay shop called outboardmotorunits, ebay item 180331717463 could Dannyboy be back?
I'm up in Scotland and the small claims is awkward with Scots Vs English law. Anyone know of an easy way around this? I'd love to go visit him but I'd spend 220 on fuel far less my time although I'm sure it would be VERY satisfying.
Perhaps you will have to put it down to experience, i am surprised he is still out there getting away with it, one day he will rip off the wrong person and his luck will run out.

you can't use the online claims service (moneyclaims.gov.uk) unless you have an address in England or Wales where the court can serve documents. But I thought you could take small claims action in Scotland even against an english defendant. Enforcing it may be more complex though? Taking action also assumes he has enough money to repay.

see here: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/sheriff...1April2008.pdf

It is possible, in certain circumstances, to raise a small claim in cases even where the defender does not live in Scotland, or when you do not know where he or she is.
give your local court a ring and see if they can confirm.

Scots Vs English Law

I'm no expert but as I understand it.
I need to appoint an English lawyer to represent me and I can't see that being a cheap option.
I could possibly find myself having won my case but deaply out of pocket.
Although a call to the courts will be an option to explore.
Thanks for taking the time and interest to respond.

I'm no expert either, but that sounds like how a Scot would raise an action in an English court rather than in a Scottish Court.

Dannyboy has been found ---outboardmotorunits

I've had a response from Mr D. Cooper. (see below)
In terms of court action, because the goods were effectively purchased in England then the small claims action needs to be done in England rather than Scotland. The issue is that although I will almost certainly win my case and regain my 220 the legal bill will be lots more. I will certainly also win my expenses BUT will Mr Cooper have the finances to pay it all?

Mr Cooper, you clearly read this forum. A bit of advice : Return my money, return payments or send good to the remainder of the long list of unhappy customers you clearly have and finally you tell us that you are selling up. Well that appears to be a good idea but do us all a favour. Stick it all on one pallet and sell it cash on collection. Do not contiue to sell on ebay, boatsandoutboards etc. You are eventually going to end up in Jail otherwise, what you are doing is simply theft.

THE RESPONSE
Having spent a lot of time reading all about DannyBoy's activities I feel like a total fanny to have
fallen for this. I parted company with 220 for a mariner 60hp gearbox and prop. No gearbox arrived
and after admitting he still had the box 2 weeks later (the couriers apparently decided to bring it
back to Danny) no refund either!
***** I
CANCELLED THE DELIVERY AS MY PAYPAL WAS LIMITED ******** Paypal found in my favour
with the dispute but Dannyboy had emptied the sweety jar. Paypal will not refund if there is nothing
in his paypal account/s with which to make the refund.
**** THERES 103 IN MY ACC IT WONT LET ME MAKE A PARTIUAL
REFUND SO CANNOT REFUND UNTIL THE OTHER 117 IS IN THERE FROM PAYPAL
****

A decent fellow at "outboardspares unlimited" pointed me in the direction of this forum. *** HES A
COMPLETE NOB END WITH VERY ULIMITED SPARES! ***

There is also a new ebay shop called outboardmotorunits,
ebay item 180331717463 could Dannyboy be back?
I'm up in Scotland and the
small claims is awkward with Scots Vs English law. Anyone know of an easy way around this? I'd
love to go visit him but I'd spend 220 on fuel far less my time although I'm sure it would be VERY
satisfying.

**** YOU
REALLLY F****D UP COS AFTER I GOT YOUR LETTER I THOUGHT AS A GESTURE OF
GOODWILL ILL SEND YOU THE GEARS FOR YOUR BIGFOOT AND REFUND YOU BY PAYPAL
****

STILL ILL LEAVE MY TWO 60HP GEARBOXES AND NUMEROUS GEARSETS SITTING THERE
GATHERING DUST WHILST YOU SEARCH ON, GOOD LUCK! I DONT CARE WHAT SHIT YOU
WANNA CAUSE AS (A) I AM AWAITING THE FUNDS IN PAYPAL TO REFUND YOU ANYWAY,
(B) YOUR THE LOSER AND COULD OF BEEN BACK ON WATER (C) IM SELLING UP AT

There will be an address for him on Paypal. Look in the details of his transaction with you.
Careful what you say and DON'T mean in public lads. If said Nob winds up broken and the wrong colour it wont look good.
