they aren't going to send a police force to track down each person selling fakes. Even Ebay doesn't even respond when I contact about seeing fakes listed. I have seen numerous fake Zeiss and Fujinon binoculars.
Wow! ... you're actually wearing clothes in this video. Lends credibility. There's a reason they call them "wife-beaters". LMAO ... Also, you're not criminals, but you have a stolen street sign hanging behind you. LMAO!
He won a gift card in a raffle? You seem fairly intelligent. And why is it the cops couldn't track down the phone number he was texting you from? Or the IP address for the ad? Too much of the story left out for me to get.
So some dude says he "won" a random $2000 raffle chooses to by 7 pairs of headphones and then wants to sell $2000 of merchandise fro $500 and you didnt have any suspicion? LOL!!! You are either completely naive and have no street smarts or you knew in your mind they were most likely stolen. Come on Dude... Please...
What happens if you go to a Garage sale and the person says he bought all the items from a storage unit. Do you still take the forms around to places like these? The guy had tons of star wars and real expensive rocks. foot ball cards and other misc things. I asked him about the things, he told me he had no clue what he had or how much any thing was. It's kind of scary when stuff like that happens.
I dont now why police officers have to do that intimidation thing before they even know. Know this video is older but dont think he had the right to look at your phone. Of course you did the right thing by allowing him 2.
Reading the replies makes me wonder what is wrong with people. Everyone is an expert and has a lot of criticism for someone trying to do a good job on his channel. If you dislike it so much don’t watch.
Red Flag is his reason for having them. He paid $2,000 for them with a gift card and was willing to take $500? That's too good of a deal. Sucks that people steal and are generally dishonest. Glad you got it cleared up though!
That's terrifying!! Where did you print that out? Or did you just make it up? Also curious about your reseller ad...do you just put out there that you resell stuff, or do you make a list of what you mainly look for?
Good info on purchase receipt, glad things worked out. I've had a variety of odd encounters from mistaken as person that robbed liquor store, swarmed by cops pointing guns, to detectives wanting my house video feed for neighboring store homicides & break-ins. I prefer not to have run-ins, I'm moving to the country now.
I guess they wrote down the info on your phone. I might have thought they would take it as evidence, maybe try to use it to trace or trick the guy. Anyway, you guys are great & love your videos. See ya later
alright so this story is saying that you are on Youtube to tell (675,172 People) that you are a (RAT) you gave up the guy so I gotcha that is the Meaning to why this guy went on Youtube another RAT makes a TAPE (Trump don't RAT) (Manafort don't Rat) & your a RAT :)
I bought a set of Bose Shelf speakers at the pawn shop one time. Literally the next day, State police was at my door. The speakers had apparently been reported stolen around the same time I bought them . I turned them over to the state police and the Pawn shop made it up to me.
Apparently there was a tv in that same lot of stuff that was brought in with the speakers that someone else had purchased. The police ended up having to get a search warrant because the tv buyer didn’t cooperate. Needless to say they tore their house apart.
I'm only a minute or so in and I can already tell that you messed up when you went forward with the purchase after hearing this dudes story about winning a gift card Anybody who has ever worked retail knows that large ticket giftcard purchases are 95% of the time fraud cases.
i have gone to jail to this same exact kind of transaction. Unfortunately they literally took me to jail even i was keep saying that i have just bought over online. You must have been lucky to have decent officer that listen to you. Officer i had deal with was ruthless and not willing to listen anything i said. You had advantage of being white boy and i had no such privilege. I was end up spending 10,000 dollars on lawyers and top of that my background got messed up. I had no record before but now i do.
"Hey i sold alot of the stolen goods do u want the money back?" "No go ahead and keep it" so fucking fake. The cops would take the money for evidence. The store isnt gunna be like "o he bought the stolen good but already sold it? Its fine we didnt want the headphones or money anyway" smh
I would have been a little nervous about buying the beats, especially if they were buying 7 of them because unless you are some big record label company and you miscounted the amount you would need for your staff, the average person would not buy 7 of them brand new just to sell them immediately for a far lower price.
Why would the cops just assume they are stolen - right off the bat??? And I would have told those cops to kiss my ass. "You guys are in big trouble." No I'm not, I bought these and now I'm selling them. I at no time ever suspected they were stolen, nor is that me in the video of the Big black guy smashing and grabbing. So unless you have serial number's that match up, have a nice day. They have NO CASE and couldnt' have arrested you then and there. NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE - just a purple Beats headphone doesnt cut it. A purple Beats headphone with serial # 12345678 is a different story. But you had proof you bought it from someone else and you were just making deals. NOTHING WRONG with doing what you did.
ya they are just interested in making convictions even if you are innocent to pay for their police toys that they get every 3 years & their paychecks - remember they are A corporation and they must find ways to arrest you to get court fees from you
*I had a similar experience...* I took the Snap-On auto analysis tool in for upgrades, they confiscated and called police, who called me, I went to "the dungeon" for questioning, I showed them my hand-written bill of sale signed by the seller, with his CA DL number and verified address, he went (back) to jail, I lost $1500 and an hour in court to ID the seller.
I'd be careful with this video. If this is still an on going investigation giving details away publicly can be considered obstruction of justice. If the criminal sees this and recognizes you and you are telling him the cops are after him he may very well skip town to try and avoid the police.
I have a friend who sold an item on craigslist and was jumped by two !!undercover detectives!!. They insisted the property was stolen and they were recovering it, a set of custom made harley handlebars.... that my friend made a living of making were somehow stolen property....he laughed at them, told them to get fucked and walked away, they restrained him, placed him in cuffs and threatened him with jailtime. He laughed again and said "lock me up then..." interestingly enough they released him and said maybe they had made a mistake....
Something in my gut tells me that one of those cops wanted a set of bars for his hog but didn't have the money and they likely have made a career of getting ill gotten goods from innocent people with fear tactics.
even the cops cannot be trusted.... When they took those headphones I would have insisted on getting a property tag for them and a case number....because if they never caught the thief they have ZERO way of proving that those were the exact pair that were stolen....
