Default Watch out for this guy. Barry Foster

I figure I would inform others that there is a scam artist selling stuff on RC tech. His name is Barry Foster. He sells stuff in this site then mysteriously doesn't have the product then when you try to get your money back from paypal there is nothing in the account. Beware this guy is low.

NEVER SEND MONEY AS A GIFT THROUGH PAYPAL, FEES SHOULD ALWAYS BE INCLUDED IN PURCHASE PRICE.....

as stated above, never, never send PayPal as a "gift".
You loose all protection if the deal goes bad.
If you file a claim with PP, they will not help you.

I sold some items on Ebay to a guy in Germany.
The package never made it- I believe him as the tracking stop in Chicago. Does not show it leaving the USPS Sort facility.

PP took $80 and left me with a negative ballance as soon as he filed a complaint of not receiving the package.
They side heavily on the buyer although the seller pays all the fees

Please post this guy's screen names to help others avoid him.

Default paypal as a gift.

If you or anyone sends money for an item through paypal, and you send it as a gift, you deserve to get scammed. when this happens, people always start a thread about it. they start crying about getting ripped off. I LMAO at those people. Why because they are scammers too. They are scamming paypal of fees. You see, you are not paying paypal for services rendered. Also, if you were to actually read the rules of this site and send payment as a gift, then you are breaking the rules here.
you break the rules and do not pay the correct fees but want "us" to feel bad for you.......not me!!! No way!!!! As far as I'm concerned you should be banned from doing business here.
