"SYSPEC" Takes Your Money, the Nothing Received

Post by K9JP » Sun Jan 01, 2006 4:33 pm

I purchase via PayPal for a cost of $54.95 on Dec. 6, 2005 the oscilloscope training course manual and VHS tape advertised by SYSPEC on this website banners. I never received a reply or shipment of anything from SYSPEC. I tried to contact SYSPEC many times via the email address given on their PayPal account. No replies at all. Today, I have received from PayPal the following:

We will make our best effort to recover the funds in question if they

which may include limitation of the seller's account privileges.

You should contact your bank and let them know you have been the victim of fraud, if you used a credit card request a chargeback. Paypal tried that same thing on me, I got a chargeback from my bank and they (Paypal) were left holding the bag (the cost of having the service).

I hope this helps.
