Christ, what a scammer! The scary thing is the guy has a 387 rating and if you didnt look at the profile you'd assume he had 387 good cases and no ripoffs.

eBay responds to alleged fraud complaints

COLLIER COUNTY— For the first time, the online auction site eBay has publicly responded to complaints of fraudulent auctions by user Alisher71, possibly a Naples resident. In the last 30 days, Alisher Mardonov and Shahnoza Khakimova allegedly listed over 1000 items on eBay, accepted payment, but never delivered the merchandise.

The auctions began in mid November listing everything from iPods to laptop computers. For many winning bidders, the items never came.

It wasn't until December 19th, following numerous complaints, that eBay finally shut down the seller Alisher71.

With his account frozen, blogs and petitions are popping up with people from across the nation venting their holiday frustration.

The Collier County Sheriff's Office wants to speak to Alisher Mardonov and Shahnoza Khakimova regarding the auctions.

http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifhttp://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifNeighbors say they last saw the couple two weeks ago.

Many of the buyers who lost money are blaming eBay for allowing this to happen.

In response, eBay spokesperson Chris Donnelly said they only "provide the space. How people come together and trade on the space is really up to those individuals."

Even so, eBay does rank sellers by feedback. Alisher71 had a positive record for the last two years.

Donnelly says feedback is "not the only thing they ask people to look at because no one parameter is going to capture everything. Some of the other things we recommend you look for in sellers is what kind of return policy they have, what kind of payment do they accept."

The first words on all of Alisher's auctions are, "No PayPal or online payments." Your first line of protection is completely gone.

Oddly, further down in all his listings is this statement: "Signs of fraudulent buyers and sellers are very important to know, they try every method to lie and cheat you out of your hard earned money."

Those looking for their money back, in some cases as much as $900, will likely receive only a fraction of that. Donnelly says the buyer protection program will reimburse people up to $175.

The Collier County Sheriff's Economic Crimes Unit may put out more information on Mardonov on Wednesday.

If you are a victim of the fraud or have any information regarding the subjects or the incident, call Collier County Sheriff’s Office Detective Kotokis at (239) 774-8033 or email at pkotokis@sao.cjis20.org with your information.

The thing is it looks like that wouldn't have helped. It appears he would have had a high 90's rating before he went bad. All his negative feedback occured in just the last month at about the same time.

EDIT: I mean the feedback wouldn't have helped if you were one of the first to be ripped off.

Dude, what a career move.

I mean, I do feel bad for these people, but it is EBAY. EBAY is a **** site that would never lift a finger to help a consumer. It's easy to get away with this crap. The guy must of made a small fortune. Probably chilling in some island.

ebay is a joke. I bought a jacket a few weeks ago that turned out to be fake. I got my money back through paypal but I lost the shipping cost to send back the jacket. Also the guy, onlyjerseyz or something, left me negative feedback and the only way to remove it was to mutually remove. He has some kind of scam going on where the same people leave many, many positive feedbacks to overweigh his mass amount of negative ones. Someone needs to do something about that site.

The worst thing about it is there are some good, legit sellers out there, but their reputation gets trampled by scum.

TimeToPay




You can add $195 for what he stole from me. I am in Chicago and will contact our local media. I definitely think Ebay needs to pay, and a class action lawsuit should be filed if they refuse to do so. If they can allow sellers to list, then steal your money, they should be prepared to pay. Honestly, this whole thing could take Ebay down. Unfortunately, we will never get our money back from Alisher, the best we can hope is that he is arrested and spends time in jail. I seriously doubt when they do find him, that he'll have over 100K to pay everyone back. Good luck everyone. My heart goes out to those of you who spent all your Xmas money on this one particular gift.
