Default SCREWED ON RCTECH BY INTUNE72

He advertised the 415 as 100% flawless and mint and he sent me pictures of the car with a new r9 body,but when the package finally arrived the r9 body was junk and the box had shock oil all over it because the rf arm,knuckle and shock were broke.He told me he would send some money to me for repairs but now will not accept my PM's or phone calls.Beware of this seller.

You should post this info on any other threads he is selling stuff in. Make it worth it to him to resolve the problem rather than ignore it. T

As long as you paid with a credit card your golden. I got screwed on a deal not too long ago and paypal didnt want to do anything about it. I went thru my CC company instead and got the money back in 2 weeks. Just make sure you always use a credit card even if using paypal.

It really is NOT. I am an e-merchant with many years experience with Paypal, both eBay sales and non-eBay sales. If you file a dispute (as a buyer), Paypal will put a hold on the funds in the sellers account only if the funds are available. If there account balance is at zero, Paypal will not have any funds to hold. Therfore you are out your money. This even holds tru to "Verified Sellers"

If the seller, has a business account as I do, Paypal CAN cancel any recent money withdrawls the seller has made (as long as that transaction has not cleared the bank). This can free up the money to place a hold on during the dispute process. I am guessing the guy that screwed you doesn't have a business account.

I had this happen, when a customer claimed their CC was stolen and used to purchase from my store.


Paypal, and their "protection" is quite misunderstood, and IMO mis-represented. I have been screwed by paypal, many more times than they have protected me.

I use PP as a credit card processer as well. I had a customer use their CC on my website, they provided all of the matching billing information on the card as well as the matching CVC (code on the back). The customer received their $150 sunglasses, then filed a dispute with their CC company stating they card was stolen. I even have a UPS delivery conformation with a matching signature! Paypal, still allowed the CC company to reclaim the funds from my account. (This is because I maintain a balance at all times).

I have many more similar stories. So you ask, Why do I continue to use PP? Because I would loose sales if I didn't offer PP on my site as most buyes think Paypal is Great. So unfortunatly for me I consider it my "Paypal Tax".

PAYPAL IS EVIL

Paypal protects the buyer, period. I got sent to collections because I sold a motor to a dumb kid, he burnt it and his ESC, and filled a claim saying that I sold him a bum motor. Look at my feedback, I dont sell junk. So I responded to all the claims on his disput and even though my account was 0 I am now in collections for it. How? Hell if I know
