I have actually been on the other end of this. I was selling a card and while waiting on funds to transfer, made a deal with another member. The first deal fell thru, which left me about $20 short on funds and caused the 2nd deal to also fail. I should have waited to make deal until paypal had completed. No negative feedback was left by either party, just chalked it up as a blown deal.

Whenever I end up in the hospital, the first thing I do is to contact those from whom I've bought items in order to let them know that I'm going to be unable to pay for them.

This story sounds completely legit.

The correlation between card collecting an hospital admissions is amazing. I need to quit this hobby for the sake of my health

This hobby is quite dangerous, especially when shipping. Always watching out for flying packages.

On the real though, quite possible it is true. Sad though that we have to questions these things.

It's like the boy who cried wolf...

Out of every 10 of these claims, one or two will be true.
