Codie Ryan Fontaine Fraudster shipped back ebay return with rocks instead of laptop Providence Rhode Island

"Codie" ordered three high-end laptops in 2 different orders from our eBay store. Everything looked legit and he had a decent feeback score, so we shipped the laptops. The only red flag was that he wanted to ship 2 of the laptops to his brother-in-law "Ryan Fontaine" in Mckinney Texas, but the addresses on each order were accurate and we shipped to the address given to us by PayPal. They received the laptops with signature confirmation via UPS on September 28th, 2017. On September 29th, "Codie" opened a complaint with eBay stating that he had received the wrong items. We immediately messaged him to ask what he received and he claimed to received a "box of rocks". We sent him a return label and sure enough, he shipped us our packaging with rocks in it. I packaged the laptops myself and even opened an investigation with UPS, which showed that the package was not intercepted or tampered with during transit. In the end, eBay/PayPal refunded Codie in full and refused to acknowledge that were being scammed. Not only did Codie (and Ryan Fontaine?) steal from us, but eBay/PayPal enabled them. We're not a large company and the $7300 we lost was significant for us. All I can do at this point is try to help others and warn them about Codie and/or Ryan Fontaine. Here are the addresses we shipped to:

PROVIDENCE, RI 02907-1357

MCKINNEY, TX 75071-5948
