Beware of Ebay Scammers Sending A Ruse-Package with Altered Shipping Label & Borrowed Tracking Number.
Warning,,, When you buy from Ebay be very careful so you don;t end up with a Seller who does not send the item purchased.. No item received by buyer.. Tracking information reveals that the seller, "Busniess-Deal00", shipped something via First Class Mail using a tracking number provided to the buyer...
Max weight of First Class Mail is 13 oz. and First class packages can be up to 75 lbs+/- ,,,
The post office informed me that the weight declared for THIS PACKAGE on shipping label is 1 oz.
See example of package shipping label weight in next post.
I purchased a generator which weights in at 45 lbs..
The Post Office told me the package was NOT addressed to me at my ebay-profile address,, but something different used by the scammer on ebay,, even though Ebay said that they provided a shipping label with the correct buyer information..
So here is a question,, how did the post office end up scanning and shipping label with a tracking number addressed to a different recipient than the address of the buyer who was given the tracking number.. Shipping labels look so easy to alter... Where is the cross checking of recipient details in the tracking information provided by USPS.. They have made scamming easy by the way they present tracking information,,, by zip code only,,, they do not include recipient information in the tracking information.. That info also left out by UPS who has been used by scammers to send diversion-packages,, which make a transaction look like it is progressing normally...
Here is a corrected image, for the previous post, clarifying the First Class package weight detail..
Mail packages can be up to 13 oz.
Packages up to 75 lbs.
Post office informed me that the package sent by "Busniess-Deal00" only weights 1 oz..
See image for location of that detail on an example-pouch which weighted 4 oz.
Follow along and share this widely to stop the scammers...
Audio file from conversation with USPS Inspector Services
Tracking information reveals that the Ebay seller shipped something via First Class packageservice using a tracking number provided to the buyer... (9400 1092 0609 4956 8371 01)
Info from post master and phone agent tells me the package weight is only one (1) oz. (ounce)
I purchased (via Ebay/Paypal) a generator which weights in at 45 lbs.. (Actual shipping weight would be 54 lbs.)
The Post Office told me the package was NOT addressed to me at the ebay-profile address that i provided them.. And they said spedifically that some other address was used by the scammer on ebay...
Ebay said that they provided a shipping label with the correct buyer information..
At the very least a package was mistakenlyaddressed to the wrong shipping address and i was provided with that tracking number by the seller,, who spoke of problems getting a "legit tracking number several days after having claimed that the item was shipped...
Additional audio files from this and other calls to the Post Office are available and they further identify details of the package and tracking number...
