Screwed twice- once by scammer and once by Paypal

Post by k4mt » Fri Sep 07, 2018 4:03 pm

Sold a radio to a guy and received paypal payment. He received radio and sent me a message telling me how well it worked. He then went to Paypal and claimed someone hacked his account and someone else sent me the money and not him. Without even an email from Paypal to say there was a problem they refunded his money and when I called them they said it was an unauthorized payment. Now no answer on his phone or replies to emails. Paypal says there is nothing I can do.

No more Paypal for me

This guy was good. I talked to USPS delivery lady. Address he had on Paypal went to an abandoned house. She remembered him because he was waiting on the front porch for the package and thought he was a new owner of a house that had been empty for some time.. I had sent it signature required.

He obviously watched tracking and decided to sit at that house and wait.

Still fighting this battle.

Great scam and easy to pull off.
