Default I need help! Please read! Thank you!

Hi there everyone! I am new to this forum but have been reading a lot and this is a great site! I have a problem and i hope anyone who has any information to help me or had the same experience let me know what i should do... I was selling on ebay about 4 months ago and my account got suspended by vero..
I was selling video games, game systems, clothes, cell phone etc... So after i got suspended i thought that was the end of it but today i receive a letter from some random person who claims that i sold her a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacoste shirt in the past.. And this person said that she also works with paypal to buy counterfit items to report them.. Then in the letter she said she got an attorney from this law firm.. Greenberg Traurig - Home Page - Greenberg Traurig, LLP and she is going to sue me for 1 million dollars and i have to give up my ebay account and paypal account and forfit any items that i have to her.. But then on the bottom of the letter she stated if i am willing to pay her 7,500 dollars right now she will drop the lawsuit against me..
So as of right now i do not know what to do.. I did not even know i sold her a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacoste shirt.. I was selling lacoste shirts but i only sold like 7 and i bought them threw power seller threw ebay.. So i am very scared right now and do not know what to do.. This whole thing sounds so crazy to me.. I did not know someone can do this to someone esle.. Any help is very much appreciated.. Thank you!

It would take me 5 days before I stopped laughing if I received a letter like that! LOL

Come-On...You can't believe you're not being scammed.

She is trying to scam you out of $7,500.. Tell her that you will be happy to show the Judge her letter...Million bucks? Don't be scared.. She could have pulled any Law Firm over Internet. I'd ignore it.

I really think its a scam too but i am just worried anyways because i have never ever been in this situation befor... I was thinking it is really fishy because how can she sue me for 1 million dollars for a shirt she only paid 25 dollars for.. And she also claims that she works with paypal and has an attorney already and will prosucute me for a million dollars unless i pay her the 7500 dollars right now and she will drop everything.. So are you guys saying i have nothing to worry about and this is only a scam? I was not a power seller or anthing also. I only had about 41 feedback in a 6 month period and was 100 percent positive..

Wow these scammers are going out of there way then huh? The letter she sent me looks really legit though! its has a telephone number address and everything... Well thank you everyone for the quick response! I was really worried that they were really going to take me to court to try and sue me for a million dollars.. Theres no way in hell that i have that kind of money.. During the 6 months with that account i made like only 400 dollars a month thats all..

That made me laugh so hard. Anyone can just make a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ phone number and address. I can make a toll free number online.

You will also get emails telling you the following:
You have won the UK Lottery
If I send you a $100,000 check will you deposit it for me.
I am suing you for 1 million dollars for selling VERO items on eBay


DO NOT fall for the above scams.

This is just my opinion, but if someone is that serious about a law suit, I would think you would receive a phone call at least.

"sue me for 1 million dollars" ... "forfit any items that i have to her"... "pay her 7,500 dollars right now she will drop the lawsuit against me"

lol, sounds like a scam. If she did have a lawyer and u did sell her a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ shirt, all she would get back is the $25.

It's obviously not a real threat to you.

I'd forward it on to eBay/PayPal. They don't like people pretending to be their employees.

Anyone can file a lawsuit, but it'd be thrown out for being frivolous.

Thank you everyone! I feel a lot better now... I never ever received a letter like this before in my life.. I was really scared that someone was really serious about sueing me for a million dollars for a shirt they paid 25 dollars for only.. Thanks everyone! I will just ignore this person from now on then since everyone here says its no threat to me..

Why would you even communicate with her. Once you do that they know you are an easy mark. Cease all communication, don't sign or refuse to sign for any registered letters or UPS or Fedex envelops. They they will have to serve with paper for a court date. They are not going to put you in jail for a $25 dollar shirt and they are not going to fly someone to your jurisdiction on the off chance you show up, the win a civil settlement they have to enforce. If it gets that far then, just make sure you have no assets in your name and your house is homesteaded.

So what did you talk about when you called her? Did you ask her if she would be happy with $7500 in hundred dollars bills in cash right away, or if she would prefer bank certified check in her name? Just tell her that your "Nigerian" friends will cover the rest up to the million....Seriously, this is a joke!

I would never trust her. Do not call her or email her at all. Just forget her. Even if she sues you, they will just make you pay $25. Also they will go after the company that sells the ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacosta shirt, not you. If you pay 1 million dollars that would not solve the case of ⊗⊗⊗⊗ shirts since they are still being reproduced.

When i called her she just asked if i was selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacoste shirts and i said i do not know what you are talking about and i do not even sell on ebay as of this moment.. And when i did it was mostly eclectronics which was are authentic.. And then she said selling ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacoste shirts i can be fined up to 1 million dollars but i said again i did not sell any so she said she will go ahead and contact ebay to let them know i was not selling any ⊗⊗⊗⊗ lacoste shirts and she will give me an email once ebay replys.. But i will take everyones advice and i will just leave it alone from now on and ignore everything.. I am just really worried but if everyone says that i have nothing to worry about then i won't.. Thank you everyone for your advices!
