So take this for what it's worth. I don't know if it'll make you freak out more or the knot in your stomachs will go away.

sorry photobucket didn't upload these in order

Ajax1723 12-17-2012 11:41 AM

Well this would create a nice end to the whole thing if true. Already escalated my one claim and escalating the other tonight. Afraid PayPal won't see it my why though. If he can get to his account why can't he just do the refunds himself?

calculusdork 12-17-2012 11:43 AM

Ho. Lee. Crap.

So ... exactly why did PayPal place a hold on his funds?

ManInTheMirror 12-17-2012 11:44 AM

May I ask something though? Why the different phone numbers, the recently changed to private photobucket account, (the going to another country for a few months...)

Or even just what is his last name?

Because of all the disputes he recieved.

piner 12-17-2012 11:46 AM

I know he accepted gift payment...a friend of mine just realized he accidentally sent as gift. Thankfully it was for one of the smaller lots.

I know his last name, as he told me, but not sure if it truly is his last name. He liked to keep most of his life a mystery.

I guess the order of events is what I don't get:

- Haiku decides he doesn't want to ship out the cards.
- People file disputes.
- PayPal places holds on his account.

If he decided he didn't want to ship out the cards, why not refund the money? Why have people file claims?

Still doesn't add up, sorry.

This is awesome! Glad I am on vacation and have two sick kids upstairs watching tv. This is better than anything else right now. An yes I have a small dog in this fight so I can talk :)

allday_vikes 12-17-2012 11:49 AM

I'm hoping someone didn't send him 5k on a blind lot! If it's true, even if this person isn't scam today, he/she will be tomorrow.

wheeler281 12-17-2012 11:49 AM

even if paypal put a hold you can still manually hit the refund button. Especially if he did not spend "one dime" ..There is no waiting for process to play out.

yup and yup

mcgahee21nfl 12-17-2012 11:52 AM

I don't buy the story.

Also the fact that he says he hasn't taken the money and left it all in the account ???? All I see is that PAYPAL placed temporary holds on all of the transactions... So he wasn't allowed to cash it out. Also I don't see a balance, or enough evidence to show that he didn't withdraw any possible transactions.

Going away for 2 months seems ridiculous.

I will leave about a 30% chance that this wasn't a deliberate scam and he just got in over his head and now is making up excuses.

I'd leave a 1% chance that he isn't making up excuses and this is just all one sad story.

This is not true. If his account is negative he cannot refund money. He cannot manually refund payments.

Can't believe nobody has asked why he didn't take a screen shot of the current balance and standing of his account.

bradical 12-17-2012 11:55 AM

Step 1. Build elaborate back story on finances and James Bond lifestyle
Step 2. Offer lots of free stuff, build up your reputation on Internet Forums
Step 3. After reputation is at all time high, offer exclusive-high end merchandise at bargain basement prices
Step 4. Collect loot.
Step 5. Change phone numbers.
Step 6. Purchase one-way ticket to another country.
Step 7. Adios!

Soooo why is his account negative?? He claims there are no "money issues" present here.
