Default Need potential Scammer help: does anyone live in or near Alvarado Texas?

Ive made a few deals with a guy who lives there (approximately $5000 worth) and I have yet to receive anything and have good reason to believe that he's trying to scam me. Wanted to find someone or multiple people from this area to see if anyone else knows this guy so to know whether I should pursue legal action yet. Any help is greatly appreciated

no I sent $5000 worth of paypal payments but one payment was mistakenly sent as a gift for $1100 because of the way the request was unknowingly sent to me (one of my red flags in this situation) so that's the main one im worried about because I cant dispute it

If you really push for it I think you can get it all back. Make sure you get someone on the phone and show them all the payments and show how they were all involved in one deal and you simply accidentally sent the one payment as gift and thoroughly explain what happened on that particular payment.

I'm hoping the best for you.

Good luck, OP! The good thing is that there are A LOT of card collectors that live in Texas, so you shouldn't have a problem getting your money back if you pursue it correctly

Hey scruff! It's your favorite dj collector lol.. This the deal you was telling me about? Wow, hate that! Hope your package deal shows up! But i agree, depending on how you pursue action, you should be able to get your money.

Hey thanks everybody, paypal is telling me theres nothing they can do with that payment because it was sent as a gift payment but I need to get someone higher up at paypal to talk to and hopefully they will refund me everything but who knows. doesn't look good right now and yeah I need to find somebody in the same area that maybe at least knows of him and can tell me something

It was clearly stated that it was mistake that caused 1100 to be sent gift. Mistakes do happen.

If it's just South of Fort Worth, then it's a 5 and a half hour drive for me, lol. But what's funny is that I'm gonna drive through there on Saturday to go on vacation. Maybe I'll pay a "visit"
