This is what has happened to me and a few other traders.

slashmaniac will post in your thread something along the lines of "Send me your paypal and it is mine" and when you send him a PM with your paypal he never pays, just keeps stringing you along and then finally just goes silent. In my particular case he told me via PM and posting in my thread on a Friday he wanted my items and to send him my paypal. I did and we went back an forth a few times. Then he sends the "Getting ready to leave" can you hold this for me message. I told him I could not hold them because of too many flakey buyers, but if they were still here they were his. I PM'd him Saturday to make sure he still wanted them and he said yes, send me your paypal again, as I had another buyer wanting them. I sent him my paypal again and nothing.

LOL I was thinking Photo collector, since about the only response most people get from him is to send or post pics

LET me ask you something?

did you receive anything before paying?
did you have something shipped to you in a trade?

if NO to all your not a scammer. sounds as you did not have the funds to buy it after all. it happens to everyone.

Well said. There was no scamming here, I just believe the OP was making others aware of problems with this trader, and of the problems other have had. We all run into issues but communication is key to any trade, drop me a PM saying you changed your mind, no big deal, but don't keep saying you will buy it the disappear. I sell to fund other purchases in this hobby since my RC budget has been greatly reduced (downsizing sucks) and if I pass up other buyers because buyer 1 has said they will take it, and then just vanishes, it sucks.

I think most sellers do get a little ticked off (present company included) when you are told that they are buying your item, you pass up other buyers based on what buyer # 1 said and then buyer #1 disappears.

No one is ganging up one you, on the other hand, the OP should have posted more information about what happened.

I remember the days of trying to buy something then my parents would say no and I would have to explain to the seller what happened. Good times... not. lol

Dont sweat it slashmaniac.
