Well...It looks as though 3 people, including myself got scammed by this piece of **** Canuck. Here is the thread.

http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=330100

Guy goes by the name of mrkasaku on here and his PP name is Steve Kasper. NOT likely his real name, because if you do Google search you'll find that Steve Kasper used to be a pro hockey player and coach, so it's probably fake.

This guy allegedly had 2 Orion 2500ds for $250 each. Yes...we all know that is too great of a deal and we let our temptations take us over the edge. He has not responded to any of us and no tracking numbers have been sent since we each made the deal. I knew I shouldn't have done it but...that's all said and NOT done.

I personally sent half of the amount to him, $125, and the others (who will chime into this thread) sent different amounts.

We have all filed PP Claims, but if he doesn't have the $$ in his PP account we are basically fvcked. Unless we file a police report, his true whereabouts are unknown. If a police report is filed, detectives will then contact PP and find out where/how the money was withdrawn from. His account is Verified .

This is where we are. Hoping to get some aid.

I (we) should have known not to do it because of the low price. Hell we figured we would get flamed. I think the only thing we can do is file a police report and have them contact PP if we want to go any further.

Dang that *****! I never did update my thread from when i got $1.93 back from my claim i filed with PayPal. A few days ago i got a email stating they recovered the rest of my money for me which was about $129. I think they keep hitting the account holders bank account attached to the PayPal account. Good luck Colby and the other people involved. ***** to hear another story like this... I guess being a verified Paypal member dont mean sheit!

PP should refund your money if he sends nothing......now if he sends a brick then you get nothing back

PP claims they can't if he has nothing in in his PP account. I always thought that since a Verified memeber has confirmed with PP their bank account or credit card, the money would come from there and not necessarily just the PP balance.

I thought wrong.

yeah but the problem is 9my personal in this case) i paid partially through CC.
PP was telling me even if he hasnt money they will repot him to Collection Agencies and we will get our money eventually. lol

well hopefully law enforcement works with paypal. Anybody reading this always paypal with a credit card. Paypal is alot more apt to chase somebody down if you do a chargeback against them via your credit card company.

i always do chargeback. just this time i had money left in PP so paid through it but still used CC partially so we'll be good but it will take some time.
Any info on the scammer is appreciated.

So i got transfered a few times and got to a very helpful person in their resolutions department... and basically the rep told me if you buy thru ebay which I did in my case they have their buyer protection plan which guarantees reinbursement from up to $2000. I asked her in a scenario like this what they guarantee and she said PP does not guarantee a reinbursement for non reciept. She did say they try to recovery the funds anyway they can by taking it from the sellers PP balance or detaching it from the linked banking account... but it doesn't help if the seller has a bank account with a balance that cant cover the money needed :( Sorry guys...

yeah but if CC/PP will contact Collection Agencies they should be able to get his full info including his address and social etc.. what do u guys think?

ssackett
07-25-2008, 12:45 PM
If they get his info, what good is that to you guys though?? If he doesnt have the money your still out the cash?? I hate scammers!! Maybe the POLICE can recover your 2500d's!! Sick!! :veryhapp:

PP can go **** my di ck thats why i never keep any money on there. Gl to you guys but when its the usual to good to be true..It usually is

Same thing I was told.....let me see if I can't do something. I may have to go to my people in charge, but I'm not going to rush and get on the horn right away. You know what I mean...

Hopefully they'll get something eventually like what happend to ssackett.
