Does anyone know Terrance Lowe from Glasgow?

I think I have been scammed by this guy after I sent Wanted section on Retards Club about any brown colour interior parts for my LHD mk1 more door and he said he got set of tan colour door cards for 4 door model at £80.00

Obviously I had a check on his profile and seem genuine guy with passion for OSF cars so paid via bank transfer to his Halifax account.

As soon as he got money, he blocked his Retards Club account!
 

arse!.....😡🤬

Expensive lesson learnt (again!)

Sorry to hear that youve been scammed.

Could have been worse. Easy for me to say i know.

Theres some filter on here so when you type fbook to a post it comes up as Retards Club.

I see your ad on there but no replies to it. Did he message you directly or have the replies been deleted?

Unfortunately, buyer beware. Never send money to strangers unprotected. I can't even find him now to kick him out the group.

He replied on one of groups’ post and I sent PM’d after checking his profile, all good and he sent pics of his LHD more door mk1 Escort he is breaking, once I have paid him £80.00 via bank transfer as he haven’t got PayPal account, then remove his comment on my post and deactivated his account!

😩

You should still be able to find him 

through ip address etc unless it was a scam from the start 

I had an issue a few years ago but found them eventually and rang them at work which they weren’t happy about 

I’m no techie expert but how do I track his IP address? Most of time I use my iPhone for car websites/eBay or F/book - never use laptop....😒

Unfortunately not! He gave me his Halifax bank sort code & account number, paid him online banking transfer 🥺

May need the help of a moderator 

Need his IP address for that to work and as the transaction didn't happen on here (which we woukd be able to help with) but instead on Facebook, which the guy has now deleted himself from apparently, I'm not sure there's any way of getting that?

Report to Halifax fraudulent use of a bank account.

That’s the only way to find out who he is with his Halifax bank details and hopefully bank can investigate and maybe report to police on fraud as I have no mean of search him out using IP address as he deactivated his fake profile on F/book?

UPDATE: I spoke to my bank’s Fraudulent Department about what’s happening and gave them this guy’s name and his bank account details, they will raise this issue with other bank (Halifax) and give me Case Ref number.

They will contact me within 20 days after my complaint to give feedback about this matter and hopefully Halifax bank can block scammer’s bank account just in time before he withdraw money and close it so they can refund money to me but I doubt it.

Thanks for supports and advice, very much appreciated 👍

UPDATE - got letter from my bank, basically they said my fault and they “wash their hands of this matter.....” 🤨

So I have no choice and consider this case closed with the loss of £80.00 of my money!

They're right in what they're saying, however much it stings, but what did you actually ask them for? If it was for them to refund your money (which would be at their cost) then I'm not surprised they've responded as they have. Did you try explaining that you were not holding them accountable and were asking them for assistance with recovery of the money from the recipient's bank account? Your next step is to contact the police but as you've no idea who this guy is nor where he lives, I don't fancy your chances. No doubt they have a means of tracking him down via his bank, but whether they will or not for the sake of £80?

I have asked my bank to inform scammer’s own Halifax bank account he was using to scam money out of people like me and to stop him from continuing using his account. I already told them I did not expect any money back.
