I myself would find it more satisfying to go Ghandi 2 on the guy. For the vast majority that don't know what that means, watch UHF, Weird Al's movie. :)

I don`t want to rain on anyones parade, Gentlemen, but.....
The only thing these people understand is the threat of physical violence!
I work in the building trade, and come across this type of person all of the time, they fob you off with excuse after excuse until they get pissed off with your persistence.
Then they don`t even bother to reply to phone calls, e-mails etc.
I think you can kiss your money goodbye, I`m sorry to sound so negative, but this is my gut feeling about this.
Although this is only my two pence worth!

Cheers

As somebody already mentioned, Germany is not a banana republic - you can't just phone the police and tell them: "hey this guy sucks, go beat him up".

Bernd Binder has not committed a federal crime (in this case, the German authorities would have to investigate on their own), so you'll have to file an official complaint (I don't know the correct english term, 'to denounce' maybe?) - this usually involves filling out lots of papers and proving your own identity with a passport. I doubt that 'filing a complaint' is possible by simply sending a letter...

The only option I can see (I'm far from being an expert in this regard) would be to hire a (German) lawyer.

He probably would send a few letters to the address mentioned in this thread and then (asssuming the recipient won't answer) he could contact the authorities on your behalf.

The problem is that the amount of money involved is not exactly huge (compared to a lawyer's salary...)...

WOW! This thread's going on forever! I haven't followed it, so I don't know where it went, but it seems to be a hot topic of discussion. :-)

@all:

Any news? :-)

I've checked the status of the eBay username "kralle900" and he is no longer a registered user.


I see a new user called "binder900" on eBay selling Amiga stuff.  Coincidence?
Time to move on.  Bye Amiga.org.  :(

Ghandi 2 rocks... Maybe you should go at him Conan the librarian style? :)

Anyway, to contribute to the thread, I have been scammed aswell. Not on e-bay, but a local guy here in Sweden. He cheated me out of ~700 €. He went to court and my claim, together with 52 or so others, got him convicted to pay everyone their money back. Since I didn´t get it from him, I filed a report with "Repo" ( Not sure what the english word is, but the guys that go after you if you owe a lot of money to someone. Not bikers, but the legal institution ) and they said that he didn´t have anything of value.

He has scammed hundreds of people on more than 40.000€ alltogether, but the PTB can´t touch him... All the money is probably on an account that isn´t in his name. He has a car, but they can´t touch it, since its registered to his mom, or whatever... Hate that guy... He makes a fortune on some poor {bleep}s, but he never has to pay anything back...

Hey, guys!
Why don't you all just call the Angel's German subsidary, and ask them to handle this matter for you? :-)

I bet it probably is.  Perhaps someone should make a "purchase" and make sure his address is the same?

I've had enough too.  It's about time the German police did something.  Did we ever get any aknowledgement from them at all?  Also, does anyone still have Mr Binders phone number?

I've always had the theory that there are two people on the end of this: the REAL Bernd Binder who is innocent and resides at the given address, and the scammer- who has posed as Bernd to gain "credibility".
How did most of you end up paying him in the end? Paypal? BACS?
He wouldn't need to have a matching address to collect his money via those methods.
I remember CU telling me that he sent his money via post to him as cash. Well, for this- the REAL Bernd recieves CU's letter with cash, and takes the money.

Did anyone sent him a cheque through through the mail? Then we can check whether they are one and the same (Address will match Bank Account)

This looks like the same person. kralle900 was selling car and Amiga parts, as well.

What you can see on the picture is a temporary licence plate. It`s a bad photo but as far as I can see it expires on 21.08.04
Not really interesting, but it`s there.

Someone buy a cheap item from him and then give out his email address so we can all give him a piece of our minds. I don't see why someone living in Germany can't visit this fraudster and question him, maybe even hold a Gandhi style protest.

Hello Guys.

I have only just stumbled across this thread.

If anyone has any details of this person they would like to send to me I can add him to the ban file for AmiBench, Oddly no-one contacted me about this Seller so the first I heard about it was when I read this thread today.

Obviously I'm not very happy that you guys have been ripped off and I will do what ever I can do to help you sort this out.

if you wish to email me, with regards to this then please do.

@all concerned

You can contact Binder via his eBay ID (binder900) using eBay's Member Contacting system.

I suggest everyone sends an eBay message to him asking where the Hell is your card? I did so earlier.

Let's make it quite clear to the creep that this ain't over yet.

Cheers,
