Is it possible for someone to have 50 good transactions then decide to scam the next guy? Yeah, but is it likely? Nope
    nope, always watch out for the charming one's, haven't you ever bought a car at a used car lot. lol

    there are no concrete rules to buying and selling over the internet. just be carefull.
    i was going to type out a nice long post, but my brain is just not working atm, i spent too many hours selling extra services today at the oil change shop i run loz

    what ever happened to personal integrity? i have so little in this world, the only thing i have of value is my word.

    Hey guys, I'm the other guy that Florida boy scammed, and yes I'm pretty sure we were both scammed. I learned a lesson on here, hope it don't happen again. I got my money back from paypal today. I never received any kind of tracking # from this guy and he hasn't logged back in on this forum since the 26th of January.

    Speed and Marco if you paid via PP then have no worries. They will contact him asking for tracking numbers for the items if he cannot provide them you will be reimbursed even if he does not have money in his account. I had to deal with a POS scammer all this week and it has now been taken care of. Just keep on PP's *** call daily if need be.

    Also, if either of you paid with your CC via PP call your CC company and do a charge back. This will forsure get you your money back. Might cost a few bucks in fees and whatnot but you will get the bulk of your money back.

    In which case no one will buy from you...

    I don't think it's as easy as considering posts and feedback. I personally try to get a feel of their posts in the forum in order to judge their integrity to an extent.

    Sadly lil to nothing will happen to the scammer and he will be back doing it again. But the way I look at it is that Karma is a MF and just like God it will return sooner or later and with a vengeance..

    My new buying and selling policy has now changed. If your not close enough for me to be able to drive to your house and back within a day then I will just have to pass. Suzks but this is the world we live in sadly. But that don't apply to you Bassin LOL so what ya got for sale??

    im sorry, but its kinda your fault. you should have checked if he had any ref. he only has 48 posts.

    stay away from people like this unless they ship first.
