Who to avoid buying from

I am always looking at boats and am after a second hand RIB. I see on here people keep mentioning by inference a seller to avoid. I have no idea who this is or might be can someone please enlighten me. If not by posting perhaps by PM

Thanks

Dennis

Scary really, how do these scumbags get away with it. Checked on his eBay shop and has 99.4% positive feedback (3900 odd sales) - so no alarm bells for the unsuspecting buyer.

In fairness I purchased a regulator from him, was badly stuck and in a hurry for it, it arrived the next day, all was good with it.
Don't know the guy and it was my first dealing with him, maybe I was just lucky

On a slight tangent it's worth looking out for multiple rib ebay listings from a single (private) seller. I've reported around ten of these scams to ebay, over the past year, and they are pretty quick to pull the ads.
