File claim against him through paypal.

If you paid by friends and family you are screwed.

I have similar situation but I had the guy invoice me.

Good luck.

What does the seller invoicing you do that is different in a claim situation?

only thing you can do is do a claim with paypal , any deals on rctech you do at your own risk.

No moderator or Admin can and will not get involved in any deals to help with refunds,

but what you can do is to post a link to the deal and or post the screen name of the individual.

if you posted your cell phone asking for pics and continued to do the deal off rctech via text, well like Clint Eastwood says in Dirty Harry " Your [email protected]@@ out of Luck"

Doesn't have to be a invoice just pay "for goods and services"



Remember karma has a way of coming back around on these guys.

As mentioned, file a claim with paypal, I've always had them take care of me. Also, if you used a credit card through paypal, contact the credit card company. You should be able to dispute a charge through them as well. Never been stranded either way. That's why I normally use paypal and a credit card, that way you have two means of protection (even though I've never had to exhaust more than one option).
