So, most people missed this story because it happened on a tuesday night back in the beginning of september. And once the deed was done, the thread quickly disappeared, and the topic was only to be spoken of in guised language for the next day or two following.

Here is the story.

So back in september someone who I know, who also has 26XX posts, lives in MT and has a polar bear vomiting rainbows as an avatar and happens to be the OP of this thread, sold a very expensive camera lens on Ebay.

That was too confusing.

My lens sold on egay monday night, and I received payment. The buyer messages me asking if I could ship the lens overnight, that he was out of town for work and needed the lens. I figured I would help the guy out and get the lens out ASAP. He sent me a prepaid shipping label, I figured it was cool, slapped it on the box, out it went.

That evening I get a paypal message informing me of fraudulent payment, and to NOT SHIP THE ITEM.

Fuck.

Its a school night, I have a math test later that week that I wanted to be studying for, but instead I start making some phone calls. After a chat with UPS, whose help number is incredibly hard to find, my case is deemed non-valid. I didn't actually pay for the shipment, I am not their customer. The package is not being shipped in my name, and I have no right to cancel the transaction.

Well the next stop is paypal. So I call them up.

Did you ship to a verified address?
Well, no, the buyer said he was out of town and gave me a different addy.
Well, if you didn't ship to a verified address, we won't be held liable.

Daang. What next? Local PD?

So I call up the police of the town (greater PDX area) to which the lens is being shipped. The detective will be in in the morning, I will forward this message to him. The lens is scheduled for an early AM drop. Expected before 8AM.

Sounds promising...

I am SOL. I have been had. I got screwed over falling for this guys scheme and have noone to blame but myself. I was just trying to help him out.

I realize that if I start driving right then, I will not make it to Oregon before 8am.

So I posted on TGR...


This story will be told in installments. I gotta get to class.

single
10-27-2010, 11:45 AM
I started a thread on TGR looking for help from PDX area mags. I didnt feel like I had any other options at this point, and was going to try to get someone to intercept the package. I had the tracking number, the expected drop time, etc. I looked up the neighborhood/house on google maps and saw that it was actually a pretty decent area.

People are kinda speculating on the idea, saying stuff like "I hope it works out" or "yer fukt".

I get a PM from Ape_Natural PM'ed saying he was going to be in the area that next morning, and would be willing to head over to the house and try to intercept. I believe he offered to go out of his way to help me in exchange for some $$ for T-bell. Deal.

At this point, I really didnt want him to get into a situation where he could get hurt. But if he could avoid altercation, that would be rad to get the lens back. So he informs me that he is going to try to bring one of his bigger friends who was something like 6'5 and "has the ability to be pretty mean."

Sounds like TGR.

So that next morning I get a call from a detective at the local police department who was also trying to catch this guy at the drop, because apparently this was not the first scam to use this address. The cop tells me he just missed the package, and that noone was at the residence.

Oh shit. Wheres ape?

A little while later, I get a call from Ape that he also missed the drop. He said that there was noone at the house, and no package on the door. Luckily, there was no interaction between Ape and the Cop, as that might have been awkward. I was impressed that the detective had gotten there that quickly.

So ape calls me, tells me he doesnt know what else to do. He took some photos and was heading out. The detective didnt really have anything too positive to say either.

At this point, I was out a lens. All was lost, and it was just going to be life experience. Really really shitty life experience.

So I skipped my morning class, was moping around the house, pretty damn bummed.

Out of left field I get a call from Ape informing me he got the lens!

Wha?? FKNA!!!!!!

I quickly verify the serial# and find out that we have a winner.

Then he tells me how he got it. Ape, correct me if any of these details are wrong.

They decided that because they had already gone all the way out to the house, they may as well snoop around a bit to find some more evidence, or a way to get the lens back. They ended up walking around the property pretending to look for their cat, and wander into the backyard, saying something like "here buttermilk, where are you?".

Through the sliding glass door, they see a package sitting on a table that matches my description. They also see a little kid on a couch watching TV.

They walk up to the door, open it, sneak behind the kid and grab the lens. Then run out to the car, drive away, and proceed to call me.

FKNA!

Yet another reason I stay around here. This place continues to come through for everyone.

So Ape now has a brand new pair of Moment Night Trains coming to his door, the prize for kicking ass.


And the best part? Ape was on crutches.



Some of apes corrections...


And to clarify a couple of things:

1) The cats name was biscuit (not a big deal but whatever)

2) The "kid in question was around 3 years old, sitting at the same kitchen table that the lens was on. He was watching the whole thing go down, but for some crazy ass reason he kept his mouth shut. My friend just walked in and was like, "hey man, what's up" and the kid just sat there and watched the whole thing go down while eating his cereal. The parents were in the house, but I think they were in the shower or something. Needless to say we just hauled ass out of there... And when I say haul ass I'm pretty sure I set some kind of world record for crutch galloping top speed.


Other than that the details are pretty much right on... I just wish I could've been there to see the confusion when they tried to figure out what the fuck happened to there lens... "I could've sworn I left it right on the kitchen table..." Bitches. :FIREdevil

In case you haven't figured it out, ebay is not gear swap. While I wouldn't hesitate to do what you did with a known maggot, ebay is a different kettle of fish. There are some pretty talented scam artists working ebay.

I hope it all turns out well, but I am not holding my breath...good luck.

Wow, I had been wondering what happened with this. Thought something other than a front porch grab must've gone down when you couldn't give us details.

Nice work Ape, who IIRC is a JONG minus the JOG and add a hefty does of FKNA.


So any word on who was actually behind this? Theory time:

Theory A:

House is typically unoccupied around the time UPS comes, somebody sketchy (neighbor possibly) knows this

Perps know UPS route and have package delivered to that house, which they quickly/stealthily retrieve under normal circumstances

Kid was home sick that day

UPS knocked on door, kid grabbed package, perps abort mission

Kid's parents now think kid is on crack because he keeps talking about their package that went missing

Theory B:

Kid has a sketchy babysitter that thinks they can get away with it since it's not their address

Kid gets beat by babysitter, plus parents think he's on crack

Theory C:

Sketchy UPS driver scams people on e-bay

Sketchy UPS driver falsifies delivery records to this (and possibly other) adresses

Sketchy UPS driver gets sick/has emergency, other driver takes that route

Package gets delivered

Kids parents think he is on crack when he mentions missing package

Theory D:

Kid's parents are sketchy and dumb, using their own adress for these scams

Theory E:

Kid has a nasty Lucky Charms habit to support, scams people on e-bay to support it

Insert the word "crack" for lucky charms if this kid is over age 12

Theory F: The house is the shipping address for this stuff, parents or someone in the house think they are really helping out legitimate transactions by forwarding the said shipped merchandise to some other address- maybe even a foreign address, Nigeria or where-ever. Dateline or one of the TV type shows like that tracked packages that were sent to US addresses- someone looking for a work from home type of job, and the person gets the stuff and turns it around shipping it to a foreign addressee. If I remember correctly, the TV show tracked one big screen TV all through customs to some little village somewhere in Nigeria, Africa.

Assuming the parents were the scammers and beat the 3 year old into confessing what happened, they now know some big motherfucker walked right into their home, talked to their child, knew exactly what to take, and left completely undetected.

There has been some police interaction with the occupants of the residency since the event. I would advise against any further action against the home. Whats done is done, everything has been resolved.

Plus the occupants were not the scammers. It was just a drop point. But they were not necessarily good people either. But they have nothing to hide from the cops anymore, and that might mean they could take said hatemail directly to the police.

I would urge anyone to not send feces infused packaging to the house, but that is apes call, as he would be the only one giving out the address. He is also the one who "trespassed" into the house, and would likely be held liable if anything were to happen.

Sure, the people in the house ARE bad people, but everything turned out well in the end. I say leave well enough alone, but I guess it's not my call.

So -- single -- have you sent the buyer a message through ebay, asking him how he's enjoying the lens so far?

The most amazing part of this story is that it was the non-mag friend who did the most. Knowing nothing more about the guy I am pretty sure I'd enjoy hanging out with him.

"You want to stop at this random house and steal back something that was originally stolen from some random person you don't even know on the internet? And since you are on crutches I am going to have to walk right in to the house and take the shit while the people are still home? I'm Down."

he was using someone elses ebay account.

I have thought about mailing him a picture of his house, with a note written on it in sharpie that says "Cute kid, hope you enjoy the lens", but whatever. I got the lens back, ape got skis, all is well in the universe.

And Rob (lobstah), you da meng! Thanks for hookin him up!

And thanks to everyone else who is willing to help out Ape because of this situation, in this thread and the old one. He is a standup dude.

The visual of Ape galloping away on crutches is just too funny.

FIFY....

And as for the dogshit thing, while it is tempting and would be fun, I am going to agree with Single on this one. Let's just leave it be. Actually, if you PM me a really really good idea to use the photos of the house/backyard for I will send them to you, but it has to be really good.

I think this would be the call. Use block lettering cut from a magazine (old school). Finish up with, "you fucked with the wrong guy."

awesome. the only thing better would have been if Ape had swapped it with a similar box with a giant turd and a change for a nickel sticker on it. all done while wearing a POV.
