Some guy on ebay is trying to scam me. I sold him an LG Incite, right and so now he's trying to get his money back by claiming it freezes every time he does something. The phone, no doubt wasn't very fast, but I loaded wm 6.5 on it which was way faster than 6.1. He says it's gonna cost him "$30 to fix it". Ridiculous, and is going to ebay if I dont comply with refunding. I sent the phone stock 6.5 with all fixes and patches to help ease the many problems it had, so I know he's lying.

Either way if you listed all the issues or the condition of the phone there shouldn't be an issue with him going to ebay.

i know a thing or two about ebay disputes , and heres what i can tell ya , dont comply , if he opens an ebay dispute , act really helpful and link stuff in that should fix it and act like you'd do anything to help him and link and link and link even more stuff , be sure to make a tut on how to go back to original rom ! if he says it doesnt help , link him another one ! and tell him to compare the performance to a youtube vid , and tell him to upload a youtube vid of his performance with the same rom and link it there in the dispute !! never reply to his insults ! and let him do all the complaining and b1tching ... when ebay reads the dispute , they will see hes a total pr1ck and hand you the dispute ...

Okay, UPDATE! So, I did way troll said and all. Linked, yadada, ask for a youtube video and when I asked he opens a case. SAYING....

"the phone has multiple scratches on it and it keeps locking up all im asking for it a partial refund back to my card i took it to the att store and its gonna cost me 30 dollars to get it fixed"

I respond with:
"Hello. First off, it will not cost you $30 to fix anything because the phone isn't broken. I disclosed in the listing that the item was used and had scratching near the bottom. I took very good care of the phone and it was in 100% working condition when I sold it. As said in the listing, perfectly functional. I have given the buyer links to get rid of the custom firmware and restore it with stock at this link: http://www.lg-phones.org/lg-incite-rom-update.html. He said "it doesn't work" even though I have followed this tutorial myself and succeeded. I also asked him to show video proof of the performance so I could help him fix his "problem". He refused. If the buyer is willing, he can ship me the phone and I will flash the phone back to stock for him and re-send."


Yea, it's gonna cost him "$30 for the AT&T store" to "fix" his phone.

looks like your dealing with the species named >13-17 year old retarded american schoolboy(plague of the modern internets)<

"all im asking for"
haha , talking like a beggar ...

from that four words , you can see hes lazy and just in need of a quick buck .. ask him stuff you know hes not gonna be willing to do for the trouble , like ask for a paper with the required repairs names written on by at&t and the amount it would cost(signed and stamped , ofc)

stuff like that .. he'll give up/snap soon enuff


also , your kicking his ass (so far)... when he starts calling names(he will) , just keep it cool and professional

He's 22. I looked him up on FB :D Oh the joys of people putting there info out there like that.

Paypal has already "held" the funds. Just checked. Do they do this for all of these cases?

So true. Thanks, that's FANTASTIC advice! Will do. He only replies to things at like, 11-12:00 AM so, we'll see what he says then. I'm just worried Paypal/eBay might hand the dispute to him after reading so many horror stories from here, and online.
