    I was reviewing a pm convo I had last week with a member and another members name now appears as the OP. Checked another pm and its the same thing. Some PMs hijacked, others not.

    I would like to talk to a mod about this because I am concerned that the member is bot or something because some of my pms have been hijacked.

    The hijacker is fckaugust or something like that.

    It hijacked messages from one member and the automatic notifications for feedback

    There may be more, I'm still looking through my PMs

    Hey guys, I want to assure you that no one has been hijacked. It's IP related, at this time, I can't give you further details, because this is all I know.

    Please know, it's being looked into, so thanks for your patience!

    No he did not hijack anything, it was my error of trying to merge a member with two accounts and with the bot picking up the same IP. Those accounts have been deleted now. So everything should be just fine.

    Thanks - from a using perspective it was a little unnerving - so the feedback-bot will always be @fckaugust8th now?

    That's hilarious

    I think she means Market Bot used to be the name of the notifier when someone left you feedback from the Trading Post area. It now says "fckaugust8th" instead.

    No, Market Bot isn't exactly a "member", per se, more like an automated notifier.

    If I leave feedback for a member from a trade or sale in the Trading Post, they get a PM in their alerts, not from me, but from Market Bot, letting them know they've received feedback in their Trading Stats. I think what she's saying is, that any PM's she had in her Conversations now say they're from "fckaugust8th", instead of from Market Bot.

    This used to say Market Bot.

    We're in the process of getting everything fixed, but I hope you got tracking info, and didn't pay with F&F.

    I traded him for a copper limitless mod with 2 sleeves....."I was a little disappointed because he sent no packaging as picture showed and he only sent me one sleeve and the one that came with it was a little scratched up....he printed me a tracking number right away but I noticed it was not picked up and actually tracking until the day he received my stuff, "so that was aggravating, "I thought he just had trust issues :) Anyhow, I did not say much, I just chalked it up as that's the risk you take when trading with strangers, guess he was padding his trade stats, dunno what his scam was, he for sure received the better deal, I sent him brand new mod and addy, oh well, what can you do, no money was exchanged

    He hasn't posted more of his crap on ECF classies since Tuesday.

    The thing to do is to get the person to say in writing exactly what they are sending you.

    I used to mod on a different kind of hobby site and have seen it all on what some idiots will do to try to increase/up prices on their wares.

    If a person is an honest trader/seller there is no need to schill or pad anything

    You were right to call him out on the photo thing.

    I know someone else here on VU who was very upset with a trade: they got their original item back.

    Yup exactly, that is why all of floridagolferbois posts now say fckaugust. Same IP same photos, same person. After i bought the Sig. I ws about to buy that lavabox, until you commented that it was your photo, you saved my bacon.

    Yeah, that one way clinched it for me too.

    I could chalk up the sour trade I already knew about to caveat emptor/differing opinions on what constitutes perfect condition, etc.

    But most people who trade and/or sell a lot of shit usually concentrate on high-end stuff or specialize, like only DNA mods or squonkers, rare attys, that kind of thing.

    His shit was all over the place

    Well, keep everyone appraised.

    He may have been schilling someone else's stuff who lives somewhere else and never had the shit in his hand in the first place.

    I've seen that before also

    He was way off on description on that reo, granted I know 100% that the 1-10 scale is totally subjective but in general a crushed corner doesn't make anything a 9/10. So can be said for the 510 issues it had.

    I'd suggest if anyone has his phone number maybe try and reach out to him, contact and see if anything is happening.

    Not a name change, same person 2 different accounts. Both were posting at the same times. Than when he started to get questioned, he tried to hide his tracks with a VPN service, the VU system than merged the accounts because it sees the same IP. When I look at my PM from fckaugust it now says unknown member, messages from floridagolfer say fckaugust.

    Neither, it's under his name. A quick search for "limitless mod" found it.

    Now you moderators have some real shit to deal with...but yeah, let's remind the members to alert everyone.

    That guy had a scratched up piece of shit Petri V1.5 he was trying to peddle, I called bs in pm's with him, and suddenly on the thread it was sold.

    OK... wait. We don't know for a fact that anyone was the same person as anyone else. We do know that there were several of the same IP addys, they were merged, including the Market Bot, which is now fixed. As for the members involved, they need to get new accts. Anyone that was using a VPN could possibly have ended up with the same IP.

    Sure, it's possible that they are the same person, but to my knowledge, it's not fact that they are. There were some sketchy pics being posted by fckaugust8th last night that got removed by that same person.

    Mind sending me the return address he sent you on the label? I have a done a couple of deals with him and am willing to compare with the addresses I have which I know for a fact are his actual address.
