Got scammed on Ebay - Page 2

post #16 of 30
By "buying" something else they're selling and scamming them! It wasn't really a serious suggestion.

I was also scammed 2000 $ from a DBX 160 SL compressor from a black guy in Canada that fooled me.
Paypal didn´t do anything.

I called via embassy a canadian lawyer and he wanted to charge me 400 $ per hour!

How does getting out-smarted by a black man make you feel?

I've gotten scammed selling stuff a few times. \t

Seems that with each step I take to prevent it, they find a way around it and I need to take yet another precaution in my future sales.

As I learned in a 1968 episode of "Dragnet", people get scammed because they think they're getting a deal or getting over in some fashion. You will never, ever get over. Even the "thrill" of getting over is dead in me.

I found what I consider good deals on ebay quite a few times. I mean it's hard to argue against the Lobb bespoke pair I got for under $200...

If the chargeback goes through, won't PayPal be on the hook for the money? That would seem like a good enough incentive for them to get their asses in gear. Maybe your friend needs to let PayPal know exactly what's going on.
