    Bought an Amz account from him and he disappeared immediately after PP transfer.

    Evidence of Skype chat logs?
    Any evidence at all?

    Right now you're just making an accusation. Back it up with some proof.

    Can anyone find his profile?
    I know he existed he made posts yesterday
    which I cannot now find.
    It appears his posts have been deleted.
    Take this thread,
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/ebay/414290-paypal-21-day-hold-anyway-around.html
    He has been quoted but the posts no longer exist.

    Looks like you're out of luck mate.
    Was this done via pm? If so, pretty much serves you right.

    I have been a member since 2008. If you look at my posts, you will see that I don't complain, bash, or criticize anyone. My years here vs a practically brand new user should give me the benefit of the doubt. I posted this as a warning for the benefit of other forum members.

    Regardless, here is one of the messages that moderators of the forum can certainly confirm are in my private messages:

    I would be happy to provide the Paypal trans ID to the moderators of this forum.

    I did notice something strange that I have already contacted the forum about. His private messages are missing from my inbox, although my sent messages are still there. I did take screenshots of a few of the messages in my sent box just in case. In addition, when I search for his posts, I cannot find any. There were definitely posts before this happened on 3/5.

    there is nothing more anyone can do.

    Serves me right? That's really an ignorant thing to say without you knowing the details. I knew the guy had virtually no history, but I didn't send him cash in a bag. I paid through PP and it was disputed immediately. For the price being paid, it was worth the risk of having to go through the dispute process if something like this happened.

    It's not a big deal. Just wanted to warn others in case he was trying to scam anyone else. That's all. I will get the money back from PP. Not a big deal.

    What Oxon is saying is that you did not do your Due Diligence. Buying online or anywhere else you do that... if you are buying a TV, you read reviews online... if you are trying a new restaurant you read reviews online... if you are considering an institution of higher learning you read about that as well before committing.

    This is no different.

    I did my due diligence, but I wasn't able to find anything. I made a business decision. It took my 2 minutes to dispute the item and the small amount of money is not being missed.

    I made a business decision and would make the same decision again. My post wasn't my crying to the forum because I got screwed. I was just trying to help my fellow members.

    I MADE A BUSINESS DECISION.

    I was just explaining why Ox said what he said.

    Due diligence is important when making a business decision and I thought I would share that to help the fellow members as well.

    He tried to scam me and I reported him to a mod a few days ago. I got the reply from the mod that he was removed from the site...

    Looks like he's gone now so nothing we can do, I'm afraid. Hopefully you'll win the dispute.

    In future, stick to buying from approved BSTs/JVs. We can't/don't deal with disputes from transactions outside of those.

    Will close this thread to prevent further discussion. Thanks.

    Before you close the thread I didn't mean to come across offensive.
    when i enter into something against all advice and it fails I tell myself
    it serves me right.
    Anyone who knows me knows I'm forthright in my speech and say it as it is.
