Help Been Scammed

[ Edited ]

Hi Folks,


Here's the story, I bought two 64g playbooks off ebay, I used one and put the other away in a draw for 2 months. I them bought an ipad, so sold one of the playbooks on ebay. The buyer contacted me and said it was not a 64g but a 16g. I'm pretty sure it's 64 as I checked it when it arrived.


He has sent pics showing its a 16g, the buyer I got it off say it was 100% a 64g.


I did install some apps, but then wiped it before I sold it. So.... is it possible to see what apps went on which device, and then get the buyer to send me the device number.


One of the two guys is lying and I suspect its the the buyer but I need a way to prove or I will have to take it back.

Hope that makes sense.

Re: Help Been Scammed

No, I totally forgot, I did email him and said that I had made a note of the mac address to avoid any parts swap outs.


Might just have to take the hit, my mate wa scammed for 4k last month on ebay so I guess I got off lighty.
