"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
Phone : (((REDACTED)))

MCKINNEY, TX 75071-5948
Phone : (((REDACTED)))

Not the REAL Ryan Fontaine !

AUTHOR: Ryan - ()


First off I am sorry that anyone ripped you off. That is not acceptable. However, it was NOT the REAL Ryan Fontaine in McKinney, Texas. Because that person is ME and I never have ordered from Ebay... I literally do NOT have an acocunt with Ebay.

I am however someone who's identity apparently has been stolen and used several times. I have contacted McKinney police and they are assisting in the matter. Do you have tracking numbers for these packages? Do you have any information regarding their return to you (the box of rocks these diiots mailed back to you). I will forward any information to McKinney police or feel free to contact them yourself as my police report should be in their system today (Jan 9, 2018) or shortly there after.

I am happy to assist you in any way I can. Please either contact me directly, the McKinney Police directly, or add a comment to this report so we can catch the jacka**es that have stolen my idendity and apprently ripped off people with it !

Also, I do NOT have any brother in laws named Codie (which is actually a girls spelling of that name) and I also have NO FAMILY in Rhode Island.

If you are another eBay seller and reading this od NOT SHIP YOUR PRODUCTS !!! The REAL Ryan Fontaine DOES NOT ORDER FROM EBAY !
