    Default Buyer beware!!!!!
    Well....Here it is.....theofficial16 offerd to sell me an 8GB at a decent price in one of my threads below, claimed we was P.P. Verified etc
    .....So I paypal him the amount requested, He emails me his number says he will mail out the phone that afternoon. Later that evening I email and ask himto give me a tracking number. He informs me that he didnt have a chance, he will do it first thing in th am. Ok....Im thinking shi^ happens. So this afternoon I call, voicemail, immediatly I get an email stating
    ...."sorry for the delay i have many orders to fill, but if i dont send the shipping information within 10 business, my paypal is automatically going to send out a refund. most likely i will have it by the end of the week but i have 17 other orders that came before yours. if u are still intersested let me know, if not i will issue a refund."
    This is the exact email....I ask for my money back
    ....."it wont let me send the money because i am not verified i think u have to file a dispute so i can refund".
    ....But you told me you were "Verified" I email back, I had called PayPal and asked if this shmuck was verified and they told me " Yes" he was
    ....."listen im not even about to scoop to your level, any my paypal is not verifed it says i need a credit card, look a the pic, the date is today and u can see where it says not verifeid. paypal lied to you."

    His name is John Hodges... email is [email protected] Oddly enough his posts in mine and another member he tried to sell are no longer there. Nothing, nada
    .....Anyway, maybe this can be a thread about others experience with members here? I am part of another forum that does something like that....

    well maybe this should become the feedback thread....

    who You dealt with,
    good or bad experience

    This way new members or even longtime memebers can evaluate the situation.

    There is alwys gong to be that risk of getting ripped, but I like tothink that there are more good people than bad out there. I certainly try.... I guess the kick in the teeth is the phone I broke that I was trying to replace, I sold for 200 today.

    He got banned this morning. All threads, posts, and PMs were deleted.

    Did you file a dispute?

    Of course, and called my CC company. The same way that people get defrauded with their disputing things with their CC after they receive it, I did that. The money is back thankfully.
    What bugs me the most is he lied about being Verified, when I called paypal to verify his verification, they confirmed this, when I called to dispute, they told me they couldn't tell me and I had to wire this guy .01$ to get to a confirmation page to verify his verification! He was not verified.

    glad to hear you got your money back... to bad we didn't have an MMI verified! that would be sweet, I would pay for that!
