Arrow Scammed by Edsen1

Wanted to let PBN know about a scammer here, Edsen1.

His real name (as far as I know) is Edsen Edward.

I purchased a Dye I4 mask in Blue Cloth from Edsen1 for 60$ on August 28, 2012 at 8:42 PM via PayPal. This is the thread for the puchase.







Based on his nearly 3 year old account with seven positive feedback ratings vs. zero neutral/negative, I paid and expected a smooth transaction.

He had agreed to ship on Saturday, September 1, 2012 after he was off work.



I agreed to this as long as he could provide me a tracking number that night.



Two days later (Monday, September 3, 2012) I requested the tracking number as it had not yet been provided and was told when he returned home.



I never received it so on September 4, 2012 I sent a message requesting the ID or I would escalate on my end. I received a totally dumb reply that made no sense.



At this point, I gave him a few more days, understanding people can be busy. Never heard back so decided to call his bluff. He replied to this with the claim of a tracking number.



After yesterday (September 7, 2012) requesting one more time for a tracking number and being told tomorrow (now today, September 8, 2012)



Finally I decided enough was enough so gave him a deadline of tonight (September 8, 2012)



I hit my limit, told him a theft report was going to be filed and this is the reply as insane as it sounds.....



This was his reply to the notice.



I'm willing to work it out for either a refund of my 60 or the mask.

He has been informed of the theft report as of 8:45PM Saturday September 8, 2012.

His reply to the theft report:

It would be ideal for you to help out the mods by posting his personal information so they could see if he has aliases

What other information can I give?

Sadly I didn't get as much information as I usually get which was a mistake on my end.

If the mods want additional information, they will ask for it.
Until then, don't post personal information.

I would start a paypal claim now and escalate it as soon as you can.
The constant stalling and delays are typical scammer tactics.
PAypal allows you to buy postage through them so $ shouldn't have been an issue (let's ignore for a moment that if you can't complete a deal as agreed you shouldn't start it) but $4? you can't come up with $4? I turned in all my change last week $26. I turned in all my soda cans $24. Just sayin'

You've gotten the run around for a while, I would suggest you leave a negative feedback to help other potential buyers avoid this person (the negative he will give you can removed as retaliatory by the mods.)

Start a paypal claim. You can always cancel it if the mask shows up.

Gotta agree here, I would have opened the paypal claim the same day I made this thread. Any additional time just gives him time to try and take the money and close the accounts.

Paypal will contact him and demand a tracking number - when he doesn't give one you should get your money back.

Sorry for not updating.

I have been in communication.

I sent Edsen a box yesterday.

I shouldn't have but I paid postage and a box and he is hopefully sending me the Blue I4s this coming week.

There is tracking on the box I sent to him, all he has to do is put the mask in, tape it shut, and put it into the mail.

He is still slacking on shipping, expecting word today.

Preparing to contact his local authorities if he hasn't shipped by tonight.

I think you've given this guy more then enough time, just save yourself the trouble, and let the professionals deal with this. He's had more then enough time to hold up his end of the deal.

Ok, so wanted to update

I got the mask in today, over a month from the day I ordered it.

Excuse after excuse. I sent a box and he finally sent it back.

NO WAY ever that I will remove the negative feedback.

Had I gotten it in a week or so after promised it would have gone neutral.





The mask had paint in a lot of the smaller spots and the foam is falling off in one spot.

Soft ears were okay but pretty dirty.

Lens wasn't terrible but put in my own.




Claim resolved but still recommend people avoid Edsen.
