    I had a made a deal with the user battlebeasts for a vsx giftset and had sent him the money on feb 2nd, he then told me he would have it out on the 5th and pm me with tracking its now the 9th and he has stopped awnsering my messages and hasent been online since yesterday. I have now opened a claim against him with paypal. Has anyone here delt with him or know of any issues with him?

    Did he happen to be a Beastformers member? Just a hunch, what with that name.

    Otherwise, can't say I'm familiar with the guy. Hopefully this isn't yet another ripoff, there have been enough of those kinds of threads to last a lifetime (and then I noticed the latest feedback for thor20 - it'd be funny if it wasn't so sad).

    cz u shouldnt be posting his info
    u should talk to mods to help resolve and
    hopefully you paid with paypal credit card and
    if not , you may be in for a ride and not see any funds back
    if he cleared the paypal account already

    buyers beware and read forum rules
    when buing IMO items of a large amout ie $100+
    it is best to use paypal credit card
    or see if covered under paypal icon
    shows when paying through paypal

    money oders are good but put traking or sig requiered
    to avoid the i sent ,where is it , i never got it... problem

    my 2 cents

    zap

    paypal with

    yeah what they do is open accounts unverified
    will sell stuff but then buy stuff real quick
    since the people who sold stuff to them have been paid
    they ship out the items none the wiser from thier end
    while the people who bought from him end up on the short end

    from what i read they transfer funds to other accounts
    as soon as funds are recieved , and once funds are gone
    that account to the 3 account ,there is no way to reverse funds

    No, it's just an unrelated bad deal, nothing to do with this guy.

    Already checked the memberlist at LRG and didn't notice a guy by that name, so unless it's an alias, don't think he's a member.

    at this point all you can do is wait
    to see if paypal recovers anything

    bank will not reverse
    only if it had been unathoriezed

    Stuff like this pisses me off. It's a shame but this stuff happens. Zap Dragon has some good advice. Beware folks when you deal with a newbie here. Get feedback.

    I contacted Joe Moore about getting his IP and contacting his ISP since they can get in touch with him for internet fraud, Paypal wont do shit and the bank said I am f*&^%d.

    i understand jumping on a sweet deal, but torere is the risk with a new person
    2 years ago i was offered a mib complete fort max and turned it down sounded to good , told tom and he bought it and got it ,great for him

    but like the saying goes, if it sounds to good?

    and it always helps to get more info on the person it it is a huge/large
    trade or buy

    my 2 cents

    What really pisses me off is that paypal is so lame on helping out in these situations. I mean, we pay so much for these stupid fees, where's the service for all these fees.

    If only there was an alternative to paypal.

    Agreed. While I have had nothing but pos. experiences with Paypal, I hear too many bad things about them to not want a competitor. There even used to be a site devoted to destroying Paypal (verbally), but I'm not sure if it still exists. I seem to recall it even had all pertinent their phone numbers, which used to be impossible to find.
