Be carefull with this guy from Finland.
I have bought a APM lens from him. Paid through bank transfer and 2 days later he stopped responding to my messages.
This is his email tauno.ihalainen2@luukku.com 

I`ll be glad if someone advices how to proceed in cases like this.

Hello,

I must say that I also was cheated by this Tauno.

I saw an add for an APM lens 152 F/8, and contacted him, as I was interested in purchasing it.
Unfortunately, I did the money transfer, but got nothing in return..

I expect that the Admins on astromart.com could obtain this guy's IP address, ban him for any future attempts, and maybe also provide us this IP Address as this could be used to file a complaint on the Police department in his location (don't know if Finland is really the real location, as proxies could have been used..).

So my kind request to the Admin team on Astromart is to help us solve this problem.

Bogdan.
