Default Anyone know “bradlebrow99” on eBay?

I know this is not related to here but maybe it is. This douche bag keeps bidding up my rc auctions, wins, and then cancels the sale with eBay. This has happened to me twice before I blocked him but I think it’s someone driving up bids to scare others away. Anyway, let me know. Thanks

how can you tell the exact name of bidder .dint that stop or get morphed(actual name of opposing bidder) by ebay years ago.I think it did. after awhile ebay will block that user from bidding.

Once they win the auction you as the seller can definitely see who the bidder is.

He didn't say it was an rctech issue. He asked if anybody knew the guy.

Mostly just honest. And people don't like that.

Having read your unedited post. Call it what you want but as far as the original question by the OP. This thread will simply die, here in the chat lounge.

Assume I actually know the guy in question. If he's my buddy, am I in any way going to help you, not a chance. If he's bought from me without issue, why would I help you? Even if I do help you, what are you going to gain, the OP already blocked him on ebay. The OP gives no reason for asking if anyone knows him. Should I have gone phishing and said, yes I know him? Then what?

Too many people get the answers they do because of the questions they ask.. but then complain about the answers they get.

So a user comes and asked questions on how to tune suspension and gets a "use the search feature retard" response. Then another user starts a thread about some other random subject and gets either tons of responses about how that doesn't belong on a site for RC enthusiast or berated for just asking a question. This guy has 47 posts since joining in 2013, can't imagine he'll see any use in trying to get help from a community he apparently involves himself in. Would he get a different response if someone with over 10,000 posts asked the same question?


For the record, coming here to solve an issue already addressed by eBay seems a bit pointless for any other reason than just trying to figure out who it is. There is nothing stopping the accused of creating additional eBay accounts and doing the same thing either. Communities are supposed to help members, not shun them for simply reaching out. This could have been addressed better or differently.
