    idk, he uses different names, i was replying to an advert on a job centre website, for an ebay administrator. i was supposed to be selling an expensive watch, but when the buyer received a jigsaw puzzle, and this individual can't be traced.

    I have reported him to the police but i'm not holding my breath. Plus Barclays contacted me today and said the money is gone and they can't help me any further. I have even given them the action fraud crime reference number, but then they stopped contacting me too.

    I have decided not to continue in education, but to try and get my employment support allowance reinstated. Education is just a game any way, and an expensive one at that!

    true, and it's not the first time it's happened. I thought that i would be able to do a bankers chargeback, but apparently not!

    nevermind huh.
