Default Was I scammed? Was anyone else scammed?

So does anyone remember this thread from a few weeks ago?

http://www.blowoutcards.com/forums/f...uick-sale.html

I purchased a Jordy Nelson rookie shoe card from him for $7 and then sent him some extra PP just to help with his situation.

It has been about 19 days now since I bought the card from him and I haven't received it. He hasn't been on since February 21st and I sent him a message on the 26th and he hasn't gotten on and responded. I posted in the thread asking if anyone else had not received their cards and I got a PM from one member saying they haven't received a lot they purchased from him.

I hate to suggest it, but considering I'm not the only one that hasn't received my card(s) and he already has one neg I can't help but think this was a big last hoorah scam for him to pick up some PP and then disappear...

I hope I am wrong in which I will apologize appropriately. What do you guys think? I don't really know how I would go about getting my money back if I was in fact scammed.

It seems like bbcardsaregreat knows him in some fashion. If anyone can contact him, I just want to know if something happened that he can't send at the moment or something.

He's having personal problems right now. Just contact him and ask for a refund if you don't want to wait any longer.

Wow that sucks. Hope seller gets everyone their stuff. Although I do find it confusing how $50 of sales is going to make any kind of dent in medical bills.

Did anyone ever receive any proof of his "situation?" Or did they just take him at his word?

No offense to him or anyone else, but having a situation doesn't make it okay for someone to take your money for the card and good will and then disappear for 19 days without even an explanation.

This is a valid point.

I have heard of his situation, and believe that everyone is taking him at his word on it. If that's the case, that's a little iffy. If his son is having those medical problems, I feel bad for him, no doubt. But, if you do have time to come on here and do quicksales to raise a little money, you could at least get on here and give people a heads up for peace of mind. He was posting everything from his cell, so he should be able to log on via his cell and give an update.

People need to quit coughing up money to everyone that comes along with a sob story and no proof. I am not calling this guy a liar, but without proof I wouldn't have given him any free money. Thebrokepoet's son Connor is having medical issues, Ive given money there, but its because there is a lot of evidence out there that its more than legit.

That's a great point.

This situation isn't acceptable IMO. I don't care what was going on, I would never leave people hanging for that long. It's not right.

Although some situations are real, I have just seen too many fake situations for me to take people at their word anymore. Sad, but true. Too many people play with people's emotions.

I'm 95% sure they just took his word for it.

Plus the one month mark is coming up so they wouldn't be able to file a paypal claim after that (am I correct?)

Everytime I see a "help me" thread I don't even bother clicking on it, not worth the risk or waste of time IMHO

Pretty much what happened yeah. I have to say that situation rubbed me the wrong way from the start. I really can't believe after the Haiku situation that people continue to so easily trust people on here. It was like that never happened.

Hopefully he sees this and sends the cards...I can see a large junk coming out of his bank account in the upcoming weeks based on the number of people saying they bought lots from him.

I also purchased a lot from him and have not had a response to numerous PMs. I mean there is proof that his son is very ill, but at the same time leaving people hanging on for weeks on end with no answer is unacceptable. I hope for the best for him, his son and his family, but he needs to follow through on his word
