    Internet Detective Required to catch UK Parts Scammer

    I buy loads of eBay and in the past 10 years haven't had a single issue. That was until recently when I purchased various bits and bobs from a breaker. Unfortunately for me the seller [Chris] encouraged me to send the money via PayPal outside of eBay in the form of a friends and family transaction. You can guess that the seller hasn’t sent me the parts, nor is he replying to my messages or emails.

    EBay and PayPal are advising they can't help as I did the deal outside of eBay and PayPal won't cover me as I sent it via F&F. Citizens advice have suggested I raise a Small Claims court action which I'm fine with but the issue is I don’t have an address to serve the documents to.

    So, do we have anyone out there who is rather handy on the internet and can find the address details for:

    ebay seller: 77jwautos

    Jwautos77@hotmail.com

    Kimberley Davison – [PAYPAL ACCOUNT NAME]

    Location Cleveland

    Paypal Mobile: 07*****4288 (i got this from paypal but dont have the full number)

    Thanks for this. How did you tie the address to the details provided above?

    Im guessing the seller uses his partners paypal account hence its a female.

    That comes up as a fairly respectable looking detached house if you put the address into Google maps and look at street view

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.5...4!1sWA88hK-PZR53cOiAf6V5XA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

    Satellite view shows nothing untoward out the back , so either the wrong address , or they have other premises

    Thought of that, but figured he wouldn'tshate his addrwss with me as i only have one ebay accunt. I also thought about buying an item then asking to return it - in order to get the address.

    I also note you said the seller's name was given as Chris in your first post ???

    Could be worth ringing that Fiat place and asking for Chris or Joh(n) ... just to see if anyone answers .

    Yes, thats a good shout. I had several messages from the seller who at first was very helpful and closed his coms with Chris.

    I wounder if the fiat place have another ebay account in parallel to the one i interacted with. Wpuld be good to find a joh(n) wilkie registered to the fiat place or even better a kimberley davison.

    Looking at their previous ebay name of johwilke and the use of 77 in email addresses, you can deduce that you are looking for John Wilke (or wilkes or Wilkeson more likely) born in 1977

    I started with a view to investigating the company and people via Companies House and Directors' lists. Sadly no joy, but the only J Wilke I could find seemed not to be connected at all.

    Thanks for that. The question is now who do i serve the court documents too:

    A) kimberley Davison - who i paid tbe funds too according to paypal.
    B) owner of the fiat business

    .... and do i send the documents to KD at the fiat address?

    Ultimately do i have enough to associate the business to the ebayer. Im worried i dont have a definitive link yet.
