Default BEWARE! User Cobra11 is scamming!

Was dealing with this user, Cobra11 who then requested we email, then requested texts. After money was sent for item to paypal address giving, the Paypal user sent me an email asking if I was buying something compleatly different. Started checking out my paypal account and found an added email adress and phone number! BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE!!!!

First off, always deal thru this site, RC Tech. Going thru e-mail/texts, there is no paper trail for Mods on here to do anything when things go wrong. Don't understand how someone else can put an address/phone number on YOUR account.

Maybe he was asking if you paid for something else because you did. Letís just say you typed the PayPal address wrong & the owner of the address just wanted to make sure you were paying for the correct item. You may even had mentioned what you were paying for in the comments section.
OR
The guy deliberately gave you a wrong PayPal address so that you were paying for something they wanted, only to have it shipped to their address that they added later. Think Iíve seen on here where that happened to another member. Dude bought something in here only to find out he was actually paying for shoes on eBay, when the guy had wanted the item shipped to a different address.

It's so not worth buying / selling stuff on here anymore. Way too many sketchy transactions taking place now with people that have figured out how to double dip the PayPal dispute system. Plus, there's enough low-ballers on here to make me contemplate setting my stuff on fire before listing it and dealing with the riffraff.

Just my $0.02.

Buying from someone whose been a member for less than 2 weeks and has zero posts isn't usually very wise...IMO
