Non-payment and non-delivery fraud in Online Purchasing

Non-delivery of product like clothes or failure to ship merchandise is a common type of online fraud. There are many sellers, they collect the funds once the item is purchased but seller does not send the item to buyer. At times, such type of fraud is done as part of a larger phishing scam it is set up solely for the purposes of obtaining credit card information or other details from a buyer. In other cases, however, the goal is simply to take buyer funds without properly following through on the transaction. Same is the case with March Vachon who runs Marc Vachon Clothing he is popularly known as Chords Los Angeles. One can find many complaints against him as he doesn’t deliver products his customers though they visit him personally and many times he just takes payment and forgot to deliver the product. Let us go through one sample complaint though there are many, but we will share one.
There was a customer who ordered a leather jacket custom made from Marc Vachon and paid him in full,but he never received it.Customer did wait for 9 months but there was no response from him.Then customer ordered a custom leather purple reign jacket in February 2019 from Marc Vachon on his eBay store and paid him $750 plus $30 shipping and he was told that he will get it in a month. all customer got from him are excuses like it will be shipped out soon. customer had saved all the text messages from him and all messages are different excuses, customer tried to reach him several time in December 2019 and he now refuses to respond back. Payment was made through PayPal and a complaint was filed at PayPal by customer. Customer was told that they could not do anything for me because 6 months went by and they are no longer responsible for any transactions.
In most situations, a buyer will simply make a claim with PayPal or eBay and the money will be taken from the seller’s account and returned to the buyer. However, things become more complicated if other payment methods were used, if the seller is an international seller and PayPal protections do not apply, or if a seller was involved in a large-scale fraud scam to defraud many buyers of their funds.
Therefore, always be alert while ordering products from person like Marc Vachon.
