And don't be so sure this isn't a life-threatening situation.

My guess is that Mechy has not told his girlfriend yet........

Remember that time she whacked him in the head and he broke his jaw?

And that was just for eating toast in bed (if I recall correctly).

... you can't ban out every risk in life! At least we're talking small financial risks here, nothing really serious  :cheers:

Of course not, but for a couple of extra quid (€, $, whatever) you don't need to take any risks at all.  Someone is making money from scamming other people, and it's easy to stop.

Seems you made the right decision to not use F&F so you should be covered.  All I can add is relax and see what happens.  No need to get worked up just yet.  If no SAK is delivered then you can go from there.  Don't get too far ahead especially at this point.  Nice SAK btw and yes I hope it all works out.   :salute:

I'll just try to let this go for now, so shortly before my vacation.
Will see how it evolves later on.
Will try to contact the seller again soon for pics.
Paypal gives me untill jan. 2019 to make a claim so we'll just keep up the hope they will do what's right if this goes left...

Seller just popped up above water level again.
He said he sold it at a flea market for a higher price (he was at work a few hours ago? He already sold it to me?)
Probably noticed his scam isn't going to work...
So he'd like to cancel the transaction.
I'm just playing along and told him it's ok as long as he'll refund me.

Refund refused by Paypal so the seller asked me to open a case.
Which I did.
I can upgrade it to a claim starting the 6th.

That stinks. I was hoping it would somehow work out  :-[

At least you'll get your money back.  :tu:

Definitely sounds like a failed attempt at a scam to me.  Reinforces the need to only use F&F payments for people you can be certain you can trust.

The good news is that you will probably get your money back after a bit of to&fro with PP.

Bummer.  Is it too early to call this person out as a scammer publicly?  Just so others dont deal with him.

I'm marking him as a scammer as soon as I got my cash back.
Don't want to startle him now.

He’s trying to sell something else now...


The story of deleting the post due to no price is crap. I have a screenshot of the post and the price is clearly there.

I say one of the Admins grabbed the tool out from under you and deleted the post.

He didn't have a price pictured before so I'm unsure as to what happened.

It's now a claim at Paypal so I'm hoping this gets sorted within a few hours...

If anyone was wondering, Paypal refunded me about 2 weeks ago.
All in all I'm glad this is over with, and have learned some new valuable lessons that I'll take along through the rest of my life.

This is great news.  You've just become a more savvy buyer all said and done.  Scammers and cheats are in every aspect of our lives.  Its just a sad state of affairs but part of life so we learn and are more cautious in our dealings.
