Default Warning -> Miner4life

1/7/2017 - Paid for a radio, $125 in this post:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...d-new-box.html

Was to send out the next day. No communication since. Shows as hasn't been logged in since 1/13/2017.

Paypal sent to: [email protected] (not as gift)

And of course now I google that email address, quickly finding this thread:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/buyer-se...s-nitrogo.html


Appears to be the same guy, back to pull of his "big heist".

I'll be working with Paypal to see what I can do, but putting this up here now after I've continued to get no response from the guy either here or from Paypal.

Why not just start a claim? I don't wait around for people.

Claim has been started, but putting this out there so maybe the next person might not have to. I think that makes sense, right?

That log-in was 1/13/17, not '16. But still...make sure claim has been filed.

My bad, I'm still doing the "2016" thing. Fixed.

That PP email is a notorious scammer account. I've seen it so many time's I don't even need to look it up on here. I'm shocked that people haven't complained to PP and had it shut down by now!

Start a thread with scammer e-mail addresses?

Requiring people to post pics with a user name would eliminate most of these issues.

No pic with user name? Delete the thread...
