    Been away from IM for a while and slowly getting back into it.

    Saw this guy selling his Twitter account with 94k followers so I low balled him an offer $20 and he accepted.

    Of course he wanted it sent as a gift so he wouldn't get dinged the fees.

    The asshat ignored me after he got paid, so I used another account to contact him and he tried to sell it again for $50!

    https://twitter.com/Cutecat4you

    His email is [email protected]

    Just noticed he changed his email address account name to Akram khan ? Sound familiar to anyone here?

    And he changed his display name and now is begging for money!

    You should've sensed that something was fishy when he accepted to sell it for 20$... I mean.. who tf will sell 94k followers account for 20$? You didn't low ball him, you got played.

    You low balled him, but as you'd saved money by doing so you should have paid the PP fees yourself as a legit purchase and covered your ass.

    Irrespective of what you paid him, the seller should have delivered.

    Well I hope my $20 might save somebody here much much more.

    Yeah my gut feeling it was too good to be true, but hey I like to gamble sometimes.

    Actually they do sometimes. If the seller never delivered and you have proof, then you can get a refund possibly.

    Well, I've learned you can still charge back via bank, so yes, payer can always get a refund, it just will take some time.

    I have little sympathy... $20? You try to tell noobs about these blatant scams here, and you just get gang raped by about 20 noobs who are thick as pig shit.

    As he has sent by gift which don't have buyer seller protection, it is difficult unless he paid by CC if so he can rise charge back through CC provider.

    You can dispute intangible goods through paypal as well.

    We’re extending our purchase protection to cover intangibles (services, digital goods, travel, event tickets and other intangible items). Beginning with transactions that take place on July 1, 2015 and after, we’ll review buyer disputes regarding intangible items where the customer claims they have not received the item or service, or if the service or goods are not as described.
