This message in no way reflects badly on gossamer.... great company, great products



Lieutenant Chuck Thomas, Huntington Beach Police Department,

Dear Lt. Thomas,

I recently was defrauded by someone living in Huntington Beach. The transaction occurred over the internet, I paid through the Paypal service. I paid a Paypal member living in your jurisdiction $50 US to perform an installation of some software on an Internet connected web server for me. The software product is called Links 2.0. I contacted this person through a list of available freelance installers that was provided by the software company, Gossamer-Threads of Vancouver, British Columbia. I paid him through Paypal and never received the service as promised.

I have several emails that were sent back and fourth before the transaction took place as well as an email from Paypal.

Paypal said .......

------------------------

PayPal has concluded the investigation of your buyer complaint.

As our policy states, we conducted this investigation on a best

effort basis and made no guarantee of funds recovery.

Case ID: 269464

Transaction Date: 11/29/01

Transaction Amount: $50.00

Seller's Email: billing@innovationstudios.com

Seller's Name: Ryan Sheehan

Sheehan, Ryan (RSC156) ryan@INNOVATIONSTUDIOS.COM

Our investigation has revealed that the seller is at fault; as

a result you are due a refund. However, we regret to inform

you that we were unable to recover funds from the sellers account,

as the seller's account balance is $0.

-----------------------

So basically, I want to know if I can get any help from your department regarding this matter. I know the amount of money is small but I wonder how many victims he has done this to. If you can help me I can fax or email all the paperwork I have. Perhaps a visit by an officer would persuade Mr. Sheehan to contact me and clear this matter up.

As mentioned I spoke to him at length by email, prior to the transaction, and as soon as I paid the money he disappeared.

I am cc'ing this to the email address I have for the suspect in the hopes that he is interested in making restitution.
