Talked with paypal good news, they opened a case he has 10 days to respond if he doesn't i get $700 back, and if he responds than we go from there they asked him for the tracking and they said if he gives us one we will track it and go from there..

but my question is what if he gives them a fake tracking number? or he just ships so crap noting and gives them tracking.??

Your concern is legitimate. Years back he sold a forum member a dura blue axle. When the guy received it he noticed the durablue sticker peeled right off and it was copvering a spot where the chrome was missing. It was not a dura blue axle. That guys ended up getting his money back but I think it was because he was supposedly a state trooper. Wish I could remember his forum name.

Its not always a scam when they ask as gift but this one was very fishy i don't know why i bought it just because it was a good deal and i wanted to get it because his like there are many people that want it so i wanted to buy it so bad and i got them but got screwed..

When i sell items on the forums i always offer them send as gift or cover the paypal fees.. and i have purchased from honest sellers before of the org for a big amount and send it as gift and had good luck but i am not doing it again..
All it takes is a large amount stolen to learn from...

The paypal fees includes the buyer protection/insurance for the transaction.. that's why it's a scam when they ask for it as a gift...

He'll have to send something in providing a tracking #, Paypal will know if the tracking # provide is correct and not false...

The only thing to worry about is what is sent...could be a box full of rocks..!

Before he gets someone else, somebody might want to post something up on TRX450hq if anyone here is a member.

He will get his ass beaten one day so bad... Once i was selling an ipad on craigslist and some guy calls me gets my address comes at 10pm parked his car a block down (he came with someone) Well he came to my door knocked i opened and was showing him the ipad and than his looking at it and holding it and just says "thanks bro" and starts to run i am like "hell no" barefoot and start chasing him, he stops turns around and i stop than he starts running again i continue chasing him and he gets in the car but the driver was slow and i had time to take a pic of the license plate so his like okay heres the ipad i am like i am not walking to the car put it on the grass so he does i get it and walk home. Later at 2am someone is knocking on the door i almost crapped my pants i look outside its the police, i went i with my sisters opened the door his like i got a call that something was going on here i told him the story and his info, The police man told me that the driver that came with the guy is with him, he said that the guy had a gun and told him to drive to my place and do what he says... Later in couple months he went to court and was arrested..

WTF! PayPal already closed the cases this is what they said.

Unfortunately, we are denying your claim because your purchase was for a
virtual, digital, or intangible item, which is not covered under PayPal
Purchase Protection. We only cover claims involving physical items that
can be shipped and tracked.

regardless of what he sends you (box of rocks or the actual item) verify the crap out of it to ensure its the item. if its not continue the PayPal case until you are satisfied. if the crap is still false or fake items, return that crap and get your money back. don't talk to him, any inquiries made must be made through PayPal. saves your hinny!!!

sorry you had to deal with this crap. hopefully everyone sees this and warns everyone.

we need a seller/buyer feed back system.

That guys address and info is on this forum, maybe even this thread. Why not do some research and see if he still lives there then call the local authorities and tell them what has happened. Its not like we don't have evidence.

I just dont know what to do $700 dollars in the trash... You know i could have done so much with that much, I just cant believe my eyes.
Never send it as a gift, request a invoice stating the items sold and have the seller pay the Paypal fees that is the buyer protection insurance...that's why Paypal closed the case no fees were paid...!

damn if you sent that piece of $**+ $ it's gone! god Almighty I wish I would have driven up there when I was freshly ****ED out of prm skid plates. PayPal protects the buyer and seller but not if its a gift! hell he had several alter egos on here for awhile. you could trust everybody on this site untill he single handily ruined it for everybody
