MICHAEL MCLAUGHLIN KB1LMI BEWARE - AGAIN ON EBAY

Post by w4nj » Thu Aug 19, 2004 10:14 pm

Michael McLaughlin is now selling AGAIN on eBay after having been shut down three times in the past month using three phony user IDs and just last this week, a stolen credit card to create a phony eBay used ID from a poor guy in Kenosha, WI. His new eBay user ID is 217stufforsale using his girlfriends name and credit card info to create the account. eBay will eventually shut it down but its him using the same old MO. Build up a good feedback rating to lull everyone into a false sense of security and BAM!! scam as many as he can till eBay shuts him down and he disappears. Dont be taken in guys!! BEWARE guys!!

Email I received regarding Michael McLaughlin

Post by w4nj » Sat Aug 21, 2004 8:40 pm

Subj: I suggest you contact authorities about Michael McLaughlin
Date: 8/21/2004 4:33:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
From: pmwalli(Phyllis Wallin)


Hello W4NJ,
I was ripped off by Michael McLaughlin in March 2004 for 1350.00 for a boat part he never sent to me from ebay transaction. After several months and every authority in state of Connecticut after him, his attorney sent me the $ 1350.

I hope he is not back trying to break the law again through the internet because I'm
sure the Branford Connecticut Police would like to know this. Detective Dan Travisano worked on our case. If you suspect Michael McLaughlin, 24 Bayberry Lane, Branford CT of attempting to rip people off I suggest you contact authorities in CT. The best source of help has been Inspector Fitzgerald of the state's Attorney General's office. His phone # is 203 503-6823. His fax # is 203 789-6400. He is very much aware of Michael McLaughlin.

I can confirm that the phone # 203 996-0969 belongs to Michael McLaughlin. This is his cell phone #. When I clicked the email link it had Michael in the screenname so I believe it is him.

Brad

217stufforsale strikes again!

Post by kc0kki » Tue Sep 06, 2005 4:46 pm

They are still at it. In May I bought a power supply from this seller on ebay. It arrived without the cord...3 weeks after they said they would send the cord it still was not here. I got another cord and checked it out....BROKEN! They said they would file a claim...took 10-15 days between email replies...Now that it has been over 90 days I have zero replies to emails. The contact info from Ebay is a cell phone that never gets answered. Today I contacted Guilford Connecticut Police about fraud. At least it is only about $90.00. I should have checked feedback here as well as ebays....Could have saved myself the headache...Roger kc0kki

Can you be more specific? Did you get the radio and it wasn't up to your expectations? Or you didn't get a radio at all? Or????????????

I received the TS940sat promptly. This is what He stated in His ad.
"Up for consideration is one of the very last ever produced Kenwood Ts-940 SAT transceiver's .I bought the last two left in stock a AES . The ser # is 205000xx This radio has seldom been used spending most of the time in the original double boxes . The radio shows as new (no marks blems etc) .Radio has never been worked on or modified in any way . Radio is totaly free from issue works %100 . Has the optional antenna tuner . Auction is to also include original manual ,double boxes ,foam inserts for both boxes ,protective plastic etc. This is a very special opportunity to purchase a very special radio .If you ever wanted a magnificent very late model 940 this is the one you will be proud to own Check out my other items! "


The radio has scratches and noticible wear ...In no way did this radio spend most of the time in the orginal boxes. The owners manual show's the radio's serial # and date purchased and shows that it was purchased from Texas Towers in Plano,tx ...not AES as stated. He also used several different names during the transaction so I have learned a lesson here the hard way and hope others dont fall into His trap.

He keep getting his account closed and it get reopened again a few months later. he is ripping people off left and right. i see his account is closed again, but for how long. prob a month then ebay will open it back up and he will be back to ripping people off. sorry about my rant about ebay on here.

Huh?

Post by K4ICL » Mon Aug 27, 2007 3:02 pm

we wont mention any call signs.
Why not? One of the purposes of the Feedback Forum is to alert honest hams about the dishonest behavior other hams.

If what you say is true, tell it all--including the person's callsign.

If you are not sure if it is true, why post any of it.?

NOW FOR THE REAL STORY

Post by kb11lMI » Tue Dec 18, 2007 4:20 am

What really happened was WY8D Made me an offer on the late model 940 that was exactly as described (Compare my feedback to his) I accept and ship . A few weeks go by and WY8D emails me asking for some money back as he felt he had offered to much .Then another email that he is not happy with the rig and he had a buyer for it but for only $900 ? My reaction was if you want to sell it for less that is your issue . That is when he claimed the radio was not as described as there was a scratch on the back of it ? So I asked for some photos after 3 days I received a blurry pic of something. I could not even tell if it was a radio ! So I asked for a clear pic . Despite odd time line and odd claims .I was still willing to hear him out . No more pics were ever sent .A few more days pass another email sent by WY8D claiming the manual had writing on it stating radio was purchased from TEXAS TOWERS Total nonsense there was never any writing on the manual ever ,but there probably is n ow ! Then I receive a notice from paypal that WY8D had filled a complaint they immediately found in my favor ! Then I received a call from the police .They had informed me of his complaint .The officer and I had a few laughs and it was a dead issue .Few more days pass officer calls again informing me that WY8D is getting the FBI involved, Few more laughs ensue . Finally WY8D Files a charge back with his credit card company taking back his $1225 so he now has the radio and my money ! So This makes him a thief as well as a liar And given the amount this makes him a petty thief Just more nonsense like the above BS posts Some just never become men :idea:

You have failed to address the allegations against you regarding a stolen credit card, cancelled ebay accounts and other issues that may be tarnishing your word.

Yes, he is back on Ebay...Jaguar Dog (Ebay Handle). I have seen some of his stuff for sale, a good lot of it, doesn't work, no way to test it, etc. So beware.
