    Does anyone recognize this suit/pics? SCAM?

    I think I'm being scammed... Does anybody recognize this suit/pics as belonging to anyone but a member named Butters. Any help is much appreciated.


    Thanks,

    Shawn

    Re: Does anyone recognize this suit/pics? SCAM?

    Yeah... Its weird as hell... I'm waiting until Paypal decides on the claim, and if I don't get my 100% of my cash back, I'm filing criminal charges against the owner of the Paypal account. One way or another, I'm getting my money, or goods, or getting someone a felony conviction. He/they decided to rip off the wrong person.

    Yeah, I saw the thread about that new guy, and I was sorta iffy on em, especially the way the guys face is blacked out on that one pic.

    I hope everything goes alright Devilstar, good luck with your refund!

    Re: Does anyone recognize this suit/pics? SCAM?

    Well, i would think the blacking out of the face is very similar to anyone else here not wanting their face shown with their armour.

    Now, a smart person just crops the pic, and doesnt black it out. Much simpler.

    Heres the best thing you can do in the future. Dont send money from your BANK ACCOUNT, send it from your CREDIT CARD. With the bank account your at pay-pals mercy, and if he has removed the funds, your out of luck.

    Its a lot easier to dispute a credit card claim. And the credit card company will do the dirty work of filing a fraud claim usually.

    It was a cc... Waiting to see what happens with Paypal first. Plus, I don't think it qualifies as fraud to the cc company, because the cc pays Paypal, then Paypal pays him.

    Not true...you can still do a chargeback on your CC. I've done it before. Usually the CC company will want details on the fraud and then they will rule in your favor and you'll get your money back. Paypal HATES it when you do it though, so use that method of recovering your money VERY sparingly.

    I just called Mastercard... They need me to fill out a form and fax it in. :sigh:

    What I really want to happen is for the stuff to show up on my door step, and then I can look like a jerk... A jerk that got a good deal on some stuff... lol... Such a pain dealing with this ****. I knew it stunk when I bought it, but it was a great 'deal', and the guys story kind of checked out. I mean, theres no way that he'd get away with it if I pressed criminal or civil charges, so I don't understand whats going on in his head. Seriously, it'd be two felony counts. Lets hope for his sake that I recover every dime; otherwise, I will press charges.

    Thieves suck.

    Re: Does anyone recognize this suit/pics? SCAM?

    Basically, I paid on the 31st... He said he would ship the next day, and send me a tracking number. Then I never heard from him again. Even after repeated posts, and PM's. I also stalked him through user profiles, both here and on the RPF. He has been online at both sites, with PM's and posts, and he hasn't responded AT ALL.

    I've been over every scenario in my head... and can't think of a single excuse for him. All I can come up with is that he needed money so badly that he just doesn't care if he gets caught or not. And he will get caught - I paid to a verified Paypal account.

    I know that it hasn't been that long... But the lack of communication and shady nature of the deal is enough for me to bag it before too much time passes. I paid him $560, and he can't even respond with a tracking number? Thats enough in my book to say that something is up.



    EDIT-

    Oh... and he had originally tried to get me to send a money order. This is the first and LAST time that I will buy anything from unestablished member... Unless they send the goods first.

    I got a basic understandning of what happened - I just wanted the full story - he must of posted about it before, but I missed it.

    Devilstar - that really sucks. I hope you get either your items or you money.

    Re: Does anyone recognize this suit/pics? SCAM?

    Theres your proof that he needed money then. If he has a verified paypal account and told you to send him cash, then..whoa just lost my thought. oh yeah. if he said send him cash even tho he has paypal, he was trying to just get the money, and spend it on whatever it is he was trying to get and then there would be almost nothing for you to do about it.

    this is why ebay sucks. any jack-... that wants to rip people off can and will do so by hijacking photo's for a false sale just to take your hard earned bills.

    good luck getting your money back. make sure this loser learns his lesson
