Ted 'thalatch' Halatchev is an eBay scammer and a thief. I can print this without fear of libel because I have documented proof (see below). Of course, he does sell items legitimately on eBay, if he didn't he would not be allowed to continue his scamming practices.
Here's how it works. You purchase an item and he delivers it. So far so good. The scam arises if for any reason you have to return the item. Now he has your money AND the product back (do you see where this is going?).
THE SCAM: You see after 60 days you can no longer post feedback, if you believe his emails where he says he will replace the item or issue you a refund and the 60 days runs out, at that point he will simply refuse to acknowledge your existence. He will not return your emails will not answer his phone.
He did this to me (see emails below), attempted to do it to others (see eBay negative feedback below) and I'm pretty sure he has done this to many others WHO DON'T HAVE A VOICE. I called the Bellevue Police Department (sorry this is a civil matter). Since when is internet and mail fraud a civil matter? I emailed my complaint to eBay, their response (you're going to love this one):

How many others were scammed like myself and did not post their complaints in time? Now I'm going to show you how after the 60 day period was up his communication (or should I say LIES) simply stopped. He had my money... I had no recourse... where was his incentive to continue the correspondence?

I have not heard from you regarding the status of the Sharp power board I returned to you.
Your item was delivered at 2:59 PM on April 7, 2010 in BELLEVUE, WA 98008.
Am I missing something?

We tested the board and it OK. We do have another one I can send you. What do you wish us to do in this case?

You wrote me on the 22nd asking if I wanted you to send the other board and I responded that I did but I think you must have forgotten to send it because it has not arrived yet.

I responded to that by saying:
Go ahead and send it... if it does not fix my TV I will just resell it myself on ebay.

On May 1st you said you would send me a replacement board ASAP... still no board. Why don't you just issue me a refund. I am just going to go out and buy a new TV... I am tiered of trying/waiting to fix the old one.
I just want this resolved.

This has been going on since March. I am out $133. I have no board, no refund and of course no TV. I need to go out an buy a TV. Please issue a refund for this purchase. You can issue it paypal to email@example.com
Thanks in advance.
But, alas, I never heard from thalatch again He has my money, he has his product back to re-sell. He never returned my money or the product and can therefore have no documentation that he did so. He does not claim to have done so... in fact he does not claim anything... he is mute!
Please help spread the word about this no good rotten thief and do not buy anything from him... or do so at your own risk.
