    This person was asking to purchase my prototype of the Altair Belt I did. I currently have done 4 all together. One for Darkesword, and two more for 2 others, then theres my prototype.
    This person sent the funds yesterday. So i shipped it today. When I got home the funds in paypal have been taken back. I did talk to paypal but they said that it will be awhile before I get my funds back but I should being that i have proof with tracking. But still...pay me one day and take back the next after you knew i was going to ship it the next day?
    And now you don't answer any of my emails?
    The persons name is
    Malinda Johnston
    south windsor, CT
    Anyone ever heard of this person?

    Although this is the persons name on paypal the buyers name on
    the emails is a guys name..

    Ooh! Sorry to hear that bro.
    I never heard about taking money back from there own PayPal account
    but I guess it is possible. It does get pretty fishie when they use someone elses account name or email to retrieve money. Something we all have to be careful about. Wish I could help and I wish you luck finding that predator.

    If you tried to rip the man off you should not be allowed on hear. It makes it hard for others to do legit business. YOU NEED TO PAY UP OR RETURN !

    This happens to a lot of people. I have been burnt a few times with paypal. The only reason I continue to deal with them, is because its the preferred method for most people. If paypal is being nice and helping you out, consider yourself lucky.

    Normally when I receive the money, I transfer it to my bank account immediately so it can't be taken back as easily. That's the only advice I can give.
