Ryan Hagen selling on ebay as home and pro studio sold a mac pro at what seemed a very good price. One configured like the one advertised would go for $600.00 more due to the computer having at least $500.00 worth of memory installed. I had to know it was too good to be true. He was paid using paypal and then I didnt hear from him for the next 3 days. A tracking number was issued but never scanned or shipped.
Once I told him I may be in the area he called me back in minutes on the defensive claiming he sold my unit to someone else. I did some checking in Ill an found out he has a regular pattern on one foot on solid ground the other on scam land by robbing peter to pay paul and guess what I was Peter. He uses the last money he got to buy the next computer and swap parts. He gets lots of returns due to the difference between the ebay listing and what customers really get.
Oh and guess what& you pay shipping both ways plus a 15% restocking charge so he makes money 3 times even if he sends you a brick in a box. He tried to stall me into waiting until the return time had expired by asking me to wait and wait and as the work weeks and eventually a month go by Time was on his side as far as making it right after he runs out of excuses that is. You will be forced to file a claim with paypal. And do it before your window of opportunity is gone and then you will never get your money back Yes this is always a pattern with him. Buyer Beware when buying Mac equipment online they are known to be scammer bait.
