Default Need help sportsfan78

Last monday night, i bought a 2011 Bowman Chrome Paul Goldschmidt Auto from sportsfan78 for $16. Its been a week and still dont have it. I looked on paypal, and it said it was shipped. It has a tracking number USPS and it only says that on October 30 it says electronic tracking info received. I went to message the guy and he is banned. This was one of my first deals so I really don't know what to do. Could someone help me?

This is in the wrong section.

You need to file a claim through paypal. The guy was most likely running a scam:

Based on this thread. he was banned.

I would file a claim with paypal instantly. IF he has the funds this will automatically freeze them in his account.

Not to be Captain Obvious but when a card can be had for 70 - 80% below its current Ebay prices that is what we call a clue. I hope you get your money back but just keep this in mind next time. For the record, I've fallen for it too although not quite as obvious. We all need to protect each other from these dirt bags.

Honestly, what really stops someone from "selling" a bunch of phantom cards and then cleaning out and closing their paypal account?

Guy was too new with too good of prices to believe. And he wasn't even handing out pixi sticks.

I was new to forums at time, and all prices were way lower then what i was used to on Ebay so I thought it was real...... Sadly I learned my lesson.

You will find lower than Ebay prices here from time to time but rarely if ever much more than 10% lower. Anything more than that is a huge red flag. Always pay via Paypal GOODS and you will be fine. I've been scammed twice since a member here and got my money back both times. One of the times I should have known better as the prices were around 25% below Ebay and the member was new. I got greedy and got burned. The other was a member with a lot of feedback and all 100%. For whatever reason they just twisted and burned a few of us. It happens, protect yourself.

and had no members fronting for him that he bought a 3000 dollar Lesean Mccoy when he didn't and carrying it ver for a month in 3 separate threads. Just that price should have been a red flag back then too for guys
