fraud?

so i bought an 04 speed that won't turn on, he says the board is fried. It was only 250, but i offered 227 and he took the offer immediatly. I sent tthe money through pay pal on thurs, and he said he would send it the next day. There was a mix up where he sent me money back, but it was someone elses, so i got kinda iffy. he still has not sent the gun (unless he sent it tonight) and i am have been waiting for a while. he said he would send it friday, then he said saturday, then he said today. now i am still waiting...
his feedback seemed fine. I also did the transaction through pay pal, so i can get my money back, but i am still worried

anyone think it is a fraud? or any one have a suggestion?

you lost me, first you say the gun won't turn on then you go on to tell us that he hasen't sent the gun yet? as far as the money sending back and forth i can kinda see that being an honest mistake, if he is doing alot of online business it would be very easy to make a mistake like that, wait till tomarrow and see what happens.
abr5

he says taht it won't turn on, and he hasn't sent it, but it has been a long time. this guy seems kinda shady

oh i see you bought it with a fried board.......now i understand
RoboCop

Just wait a day and try to contact him. See if you can get the shipping code if he used one (once he ships it).
Roll Tide

Yeah, give it a little time. If he has PayPal you could always go after him that way if it does turn out to be a fraud.

May I ask why you bought a gun with a fried board?
abr5

an 04 speed for 227? how could i pass that up. i am jsut gunna get a uni chip board for 50 and the uni chip for another 25, and i am set
HS

Except the Gun isn't milled for eyes (presumably) , so you aren't set.
abr5

i am gunna take e2 eye covers and use them (for eyes covers of course) and i am going to have my friend drill it for eyes.

the onll problem i am seeing is that i don't have exact dimensions on where to drill

Well, as of right now that isn't the only problem, seeing how you might've gotten ripped off. Wink

Roll Tide

Nah, I could really care less about paintball at this point.

But yes, Dead=Awesome.
abr5

RoboCop

what is he saying because now it has just gotten rediculous.
Roll Tide

Try and contact him warning of getting the authorities involved. Wait 24 hours and do what you have to do. I hope it all turns out well.
abr5

I got his mom's email, so I emailed her but still no response. He said he sent it a while ago, but it has been 7 days in shipping... and it is coming from Virginia, which usually takes 4 days UPS
abr5

ok, it still never came, a week and 3 days later, so i filed a claim with pay pal. if he doesn't respond in 10 days (its already been like 4) then i win the claim.
Does anyone know what happens if i win the claim? i assume i get my money back, but how would they do this if he had no money in his account or anything?

They will kill his credit.
You Wont See Me

Maybe he died.
abr5

his credit? as in like just give me the money, he owes em

i hope that scamming SOB died... jpjp
You Wont See Me

I think he meant his credit as in his credit report.

It'll screw up his life.
abr5

ha, but i still have no money!
i think i win the claims and get something back i hope

Update?

I did indeed.

I feel for you man... I got a brand new Shocker stolen out of the box during transit and both UPS and Bradys Paintball thought I was lying. Took weeks to get it all sorted out; hope it works out well for you too.
abr5

still not here, finally contacted the guy and here is how it went down

He sent the package when he said he did. The package got weighed wrong, and it ended up with heavier packages. The package got partially crushed, so they send it back (i guess they do that, called damage return). He got it, repacked it, and sent it out. It has been around a week since he resent it. He called UPS last night and they told him that it could take longer becuase they are checking to see if the insurance is right or something like that (didn't really understand it, it had to do with it geting killed once, so the insurance checking was scewy)

This is his story.
I should get my gun tomorrow he says, thought he was supposed to give me a tracking # today, but he wasn't on. He also said that his internet died, and that is why he wasn't on for so long.
You Wont See Me

Sounds believable to me.
Roll Tide

Really unfortunate, yet believable.
abr5

now it seems as thought he blocked me. i tried on my other accounts and he wouldn't respond. then his away message said that he was invisible, and also has a virus that blocks people that have Im'd him in the last few days... sure...
You Wont See Me

Haha, he gets that fixed, let me know how the hell he did it.

I had the same problem a long time ago. It was this really really hot girl and all of a sudden it was as though I was blocked. She didnt block me, and I didnt block her, but for some reason her name will not sign in on my buddy list even though shes online.
