Oh ... my ... f*ck!n ...

This is the pr!ck that done me £160 for an iPhone ... I dont understand though??? PayPal returned the cash back to me after 30 days of a filed case and his messages all looked genuine aswell ... he's obviously still managing to pocket the money some how, I bet he's got a duff account set up so he gets the cash and paypal chase him instead of us !!! Im curious to know how he's working his little scam ...

If your ever going to buy from someone on here i think you should at least check out their profile before.

He registered on the 13th February 2010 and didn't make a post till the 4th of March and since then has only got 10 posts? how convenient!

Once again ... no ones taking to note the 'art' of this scam.

He's targeting people that require certain items ASAP. Like me for example, I had my iphone stolen that weekend at a party so put up a message on here saying id part with £150 if any one had one for sale ... toomany then conveniantly messaged me saying he'd had one on Orange but its unlocked etc but he wants £200 .... I haggled him down to £160 and to my luck he said "do you know what, because yours got stolen, go on i'll let you have mine if you pay cash and pick it up" and boom ... I got scammed!! simple as that really, he tricked me well, and I never fall for scams. He acted like a legit seller offering pick up and the works ... he obviously knew I wouldnt go for the option of picking up and id send funds via paypal as im 200 miles away ...

He is cleverly stooopid. I have bought a fair few parts on trust but only if they have been on the site a fair amount of time. Failing that I always collect with cash.
