    If you paid him with a credit card or PayPal you may have ground to file a dispute and get the funds frozen until resolution.

    He tried to scam me too but I reported him and cer0 deleted his thread but didn't ban him even though I told him everything.
    He wouldn't leave me alone either, that's why I posted that thread "how to avoid scams 2010 edition" in the selling forum. All those hints came from wissman

    Be careful because this guy is smarter than u think, he planned it all out so I would assume that he knew that people would file disputes. He might have a work-around. Just show paypal the tracking which clearly shows that it was delivered in cyprus not puerto Rico.

    Also, first he said he's selling to buy a MacBook, then he said he's selling because his dad has a retail store, and finally he said he's selling because he has a company. That's what got me suspicious to start with.

    We were reviewing the situation. The sales that the OP mentions happened before your report. Hence the matter last night discussed in a PM with you too.

    Um you didn't win anything. If he doesn't have the money in his account, Paypal can't do much but suspend his account. I have a strong feeling you won't be seeing your money.

    they already reverse the money to my account. I have to wait a few days to see them on my bank

    you have nothing to worry about,

    i just got off the phone with paypal and they informed me that even do this guy does not have any funds in his account.

    paypal will refund the entire amount then paypal will persue the seller so you are gaurenteed to get all your money back.
