Most of these scams come from Nigeria, or another country without an extradition treaty with the US. Even if they were found, there is no way to legally bring them to justice. Delta Force would be an answer, though...

I got a phone call from the cops last month...

I got a phone call from a small police department in New Hampshire back in February.
He had said that my address was used in an Ebay buying scam. The guy would use false names with real addresses of homes that no one is at home during the day. He would use stolen credit card information to pay for the stuff. When it was dropped off at the unsuspecting address he would have someone locally pick it up from the front porch. The detective I talked with says it is a very common thing.
The scams work both ways. Buyers, as well as sellers, can run their own form of scams. Both buyers and sellers must be vigilant.

Most likely a fair number will happen. I mean these folks have been shot down pretty quick ever since we all have been reporting them, yet they still keep it up.

This guy didn't steal an ID, he just opened a new account. It's located in Greece. I have notified ebay.
