Default sony22 - Suspected Scamming

Guys - big heads on up on this. Looks like we've had multiple guys potentially having issues with sony22. As far as I can tell most everything was done via PM's. If you had any dealings with this user please let me know.

Please send me the details of the deal, if anything had been shipped, paid, recieved, etc. I'm also looking for addresses (email and mailing). DO NOT post any of the users contact info on the forums (blowout doesnt want this).

Thanks

Yep, I'm one of those unfortunately. I was looking to buy a Clay Matthews comtenders auto. He posts on the thread that he is sending a pm about it. He provides a scan of the image roughly 10 minutes into our conversation. I paid PayPal goods and thought all was good.

However, the image he sends me has a special characteristic. The edge of the toploader just slighty goes over the edge of the scan. Well, what do you know...I find the same image on eBay from a different seller...with the same funny characteristic. Can't believe I fell for this one...won't make the same mistake twice.

He offered me a deal that was too good to be true so I passed. It was done via pm as well.

Please be aware I do buy to resell so I cannot pay retail. I can make it easy, quick, and painless to get you PayPal tho without the headaches.

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

Crap, I bought a Profar from him for 55 on Monday. Told me on Wed. that he had shipped it but didn't provide a DC. Should I wait a couple of days or just file a claim with PP?

Sucks, I tried to give the benefit of the doubt since he had no feedback and we all started like that but I should of known it was too good to be true.

Do what I did...file a claim and call PayPal directly. They will escalate the claim for you immediately. All of the money in his account is on hold, so we can get our money back...but you need to call!!!

Did exactly what you did, talked to them and was told that my claim was escalated. Sucks though that it had to come to this and people are out scamming people from their hard earned money.
