Windows 7: Purchase advice from eBay

I also heard this message on the radio last Sunday.

My understanding for this is because their are way to many stolen credit cards being use.


Seller (A) receives payment with a stolen credit card and ships the merchandise through a bunch of 2nd and 3rd party shippers to Jumbo Mombo land.

The true owner of the credit card lives in New York and has their bank stop payment.

The seller (A) now not only doesn't get paid they also can't track their merchandise to retrieve the merchandise from the scum bag thief.
Thanks a lot, LayBackBear, since I've still been facing the same problem with shipping to my own country, Yemen', I wish to use another 3rd shipping address.
So, could you please reply to me below:

I agree with you to a certain degree, however, there are some other points I disagree with:

1- even if a credit card was stolen, then how would a thief have used it(how to authenticate the validity of the user) as long as he didn't have CVV(this is a 3-digit code that may be required by some internet sites to authenticate the validity of the user), card's Expiry Date, and the cardholder name.

I only had experience using WebSurfer MasterCard card, which is a Prepaid Internet Card. To pay with it, I must have :CVV, card's Expiry Date, and the cardholder name. When I purchased my WebSurfer MasterCard, my account number, CVV, card's Expiry Date, and Password to log into my account were sent via my email. This information is not typed on the cover of my WebSurfer MasterCard card. Only MasterCard number is typed on the cover of my MasterCard.

So, if a thief had stolen my WebSurfer MasterCard card, then he would never have been able to pay with it(i.e. how to type in CVV, and Expiry Date, even cardholder name.

2- at eBay community, when I asked them can my shipping address be different from my billing address, some members told me 'Yes. One can have several whipping addresses, I do, you just have to make sure the correct one is chosen is checkout.'

3- I would have had to use a 3rd party shipping address since nothing can be shipped to Yemen right now in reliable way. Even in the fine conditions in Yemen, the items shipped to Yemen usually get stolen or lost before delivering to a buyer.

Obviously the crooks know ways of using stolen credit cards better than I do.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are stolen using stolen credit cards every year.
Companies are using new safe guards and will probably will try even newer safe guards.

I really don't know how to solve your problem in your country of stolen merchandise in transit.
I was really just trying to help you understand that their are new rules for different parts of the world using credit cards. I surly can't solve the problem from behind my keyboard.
I don't even have a credit card and haven't had one for over 10 years. I stopped all credit/debt cards and I'm glade I did.

Order the products you want through a local store and pay cash. Let them worry about the shipping.
That is what I do.

Thank you so much,
Your're right if I found some local store in Yemen willing to request these parts for me. However, no one agreed at all, in particular in these months due to political issues.
I have been looking for these parts below for about a year, and I didn't find any local could request for me. I am in a very urgent need for 'fan/heatsink assembly since I had a problem with the existing fan. I tried doing many things to solve the problem, but it is still. The local merchant in Yemen sells a single fan for $50, however, the entire fan/heatsink assembly at eBay, and Amazon is sold for about $26.

Battery (Replace with HP Spare 593554-001, CT: 6BUDL07BBDD3E9)
Cooling Fan/CPU fan/heatsink (For use only with computer models equipped with a graphics subsystem with 1024-MB discrete memory 641477-001)
