    Vancouver. Buyer Beware. 604-445-5935

    Bought some ram from a CL ad. Was only 512mb sticks advertised as 2gb sticks. Made many attempts to resolve.
    The ad is deleted so no use replying via email (which I did). Sent txt messages and called. No answer obviously.
    Said his name was Blair. Heavy set fellow with glasses.

    Moved thread from BST Others to Fraud section.

    Buyer is also responsible to double check the good you buying before finalize the transaction, but I guess you learn your lesson.

    Just out of curiousity, are you the one that put up the ad about the fraud on CL 21 days ago? If not, then you're not alone regarding this guy.

    However, how did you pay him? Should be able to get your money back unless you made a manual cash transaction.

    You should have also tried to notify the police.
