For what it's worth, I checked the address on MapQuest, which at least in my neighborhood, has proven more accurate than Google. Can't speak for the accuracy elsewhere. Mapquest shows a different location along the road.

There is a good chance it is the large house and property on the "north" side of the street. Looks like the marke (red star) is in the middle of the property line facing the street. That would be my guess.

I was thinking it was one of the houses in that group. It probably has a couple of common mailboxes on the street itself. There are a number of places like that near where I live.

Just googled mine to see where the star shows up. Right in middle of front lot line on street. So my guess is the large parcel - though it could be the house to the right of that small dead - end street

All very dubious if anyone actually is living at the address given anyway, I should think.

The Google map link I posted does have a satellite view as well as the normal map view.

The point marked 'A' does show as the correct address number on that street, but thats not to say the map is wrongly numbered though as it does suggest an empty plot. (Heaven forbid that this schmuk made up an address...)  :roll:

Most likely the case. He can simply use an alternate address on paypal to recieve goods. They let you create as many as you want.

On the basis that they are likely to have used legitimate details the first time round, what are the odds that Robert and Lisa Ann Callahan, Wytheville, Virginia, are persistent thieves and fraudster. I wonder if anyone else in their neighbourhood knows about their activities?

Incidentally, Lisa's phone number is listed in Google's directory also...
google.co.uk/search?q=Lisa+Callahan,+Wy ... d=0CAcQ_wI
...and so is Corvin...
google.co.uk/search?q=James+Corvin+Jr,+ ... d=0CAcQ_wI

Now, James H Corvin Jr. is dead.
66.102.9.132/search?q=cache:-bwOyM0grBY ... &gl=uk

So maybe someone is doing very basic phonebook stuff here, and Robert Callahan is the Doctor witth the practice in Virginia Beach, and it's all pulled straight from local phone records. I'd also assume that US privicy laws are there to protect the criminals and prevent the victims of crime finding the perps, and that your law enforcement do sweet FA.

"Lisa" has offered a partial refund of $11 on a $41 item.  I have denied the partial refund.  Should be interesting how Paypal rules with the meltdown now so public.

I never received the item from "Lisa", never received any responses from her/him/it in the last month  and a half since I paid for it, and she never responded to the dispute I opened with Paypal/Ebay. So I got my full refund back, but it was only $10 on a complete 2nd Edition Maztica boxed set, which isnt rare or anything but a decent price.

I hope the item shows up at my door cause I wont pay it back !!  (just kidding bclarkie)  :D

Look at the star ratings.

People are giving this seller brutal neg after brutal neg, yet the seller's star rating is better than some honest sellers I know of.

As you likely know, you were being conned again.

Offer a partial refund....end the dispute....never send the refund.

I noticed that, too. You would think the quantity has reached a high enough level that the DSR would be tanking, too. You get a few bad DSR ratings 1 or 2 and it freaking drops like a stone. Very odd.

"Tracking # on the WAY! PLEASE call me COLLECT if you need to!! My Phone Number.."

What is interesting to me is how little this seller seems to have understood about PayPal.  Almost all power is in the hands of the buyer.

The offer to "resolve" the issue with an $11 refund on a $40+ sale shows that this thief is catching on.

The $11 offer was made to buy time, I think.  Though what he will gain by getting more time before the Paypal decision, I do not know.

Well at least carrejo got a full refund from Paypal, so you should too.

Does it matter if the timescale (40odd days isn't it) for a dispute has passed? I had a case with a US seller where the item didn't arrive, said he was sending another and then stalled me.

By the time I put in the dispute, the time had gone and I'd lost out, albeit only $7.

I guess providing the dispute is started you'll be ok, regardless of how long it takes.

But go back a long way in this thread and all this was predicted I see....  :evil:
