Default Paypal trouble. Being threatened! Should I take this seriously?

Hi everyone.

I've had major trouble with a recent transaction on ebay.

It was for a digital camera that I sold.

I dispatched it, but I never sent it with a tracking number. I should've done this I know, I'm stupid.

Anyway, the recipient never got his camera. Or so he says! I really don't know if he is lying or what.

After major arguments with him back and fourth, I didn't hear from him for a long time. I assumed he had gone away or that he had given up.

But then the other day he sent me some "threats". I don't know if he is just trying to scare me. Well it seems to have worked cos I am quite scared.

He seems to have got the police involved. He gave me a list of the things he had done:

Quote:
* crime reference No; C*/*****/08-3
* you are looking at a case of fraud/ deception
* Paypal have deided in my favor
* e-bay have been updated and in communication
* the police are in the process of attaining your details from paypal & e-bay, they have also advised that numerous advances have been made in this field and the electronical trail is very good
* from the encryption data they can also attain the address from where the mail has been sent, be that work or home.
* all my communication has been passed on to the police
* my credit card company are also looking to bring a case against you for fraud

Is this all true? Or is he just trying to scare me?

BTW, all my ebay and paypal account details are ⊗⊗⊗⊗.

Mind-reading skills are rusty today.
But going by what you have said I think you might be in what is called deep do-do.
What was the actual problem about refunding? Worry about lost profit and now
you have this grief?:( Yes, worry and try to rectify this, imo.

btw,Go to your User CP and add your location under your profile:laws in the UK
and USA are different.

i doubt anyone would go through that much trouble over a camera. and even if he did get the police involved, i doubt they would even waste their time coming to talk to you b/c they already know what your going to say.

Ok thanks, I'm in the UK. Just added it to my profile.

The camera cost 310. It was completely stupid of me to send it un-recorded I know. But I had so much on that particular week that I thought that it would be fine because I've never had anything lost in the post.

I am convinced he is lying, but then again I don't know. I don't even use that paypal account anymore. So i don't care about it going into minus.

If he has gone to the police, will they bother doing anything? My details are all ⊗⊗⊗⊗. But should I still be worried?

How serious/possible do you think this stuff is:

He's talking crap right? Even if this is possible, do ebay/paypal go to such lengths?
