his birthday is in 91 so hes probably 18 now.

he denied me again on facebook.. adding him was only a test to see what hed do.  so i sent him a message.. if i dont hear back from him, im going to talk to the staff and maybe resort to contacting some of his friends if i can somehow figure out which ones are his personal friends through facebook.

its not really about the pants at this point.. theyre just pants and im not going to die without them.. its just the principal.  im not down with letting someone get away with scamming one more time, cause thats just lame.

man this threads depressing.
i once sold a pair of rare artist series nike SB's from brazil on ebay for less than i gottem.
when he got them, he requested a return so i sent him the money back through paypal.
then he leaves me feedback that said "fake item" but the idiot left it positive. (shoes were legit btw)
then he never sends me the shoes back.
shoes go for over 300.
i wanted to hunt him down.
but i ddnt do sht...

he actually answered me on facebook.  all i got was "ive told you more than once, i sent you your pants."

problem is, when i asked him what address he sent them to, it was one digit less than my PO box, which is his fault.

i hope no one does business with him in the future.  even if hes not scamming people, he sure as hell cant seem to get anything right.

thats the problem with doin business online.
if done in person, people could read the person that theyre dealing with.
ive bailed on sketchy cats that ive met through craigslist just cuz of gut feelings.
online = a shot in the dark.
and idk if im making any sense right now. but whatever, im hella drunks right about now. thank you, goodbye

Sorry to hijack this thread for a minute but i didnt want to clog up the boards with a similar one.

Im new to paypal and Ebay purchases, whats stopping somebody from just not sending me my item once i pay them. I found a guy with a solid seller rating but it feels weird sending a complete stranger $400!

Do paypal or ebay gaurantee purchases or anything?

Paypal guarantees your money..... if you dont receive it you will get your money back. (eventually, sometimes it takes awhile)
