    EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME!

    I posted a thread wanting to exchange PayPal for Paxum and he contacted me via PM. He showed me via Skype video chat that he has the funds in Paxum and then asked I used the "friends and family" feature so he didnt have to pay any fees. Once the funds were sent, he confirmed receipt and said I had to wait until he was able to withdraw it or I could get an immediate refund (He didnt say I would have to wait upfront, I thought it was going to be a quick transaction) so I asked for a refund, he said "One minute please" then blocked me from Skype and off he went.

    Sadly it appears he was using a new BHW account, new PayPal and new Skype so likely he is reading this from his new ID laughing at us. I have a fraud dispute open with PayPal but Im 95% positive he is churning and burning those accounts too.

    I also got scammed by trending
    I asked for an ebay account (didnt notice it was not allowed in here) after doing so he contacted me on a pm saying I should skype him
    we talked and I tried paypaling him he said he cant put it in his bank so I stupidly agreed - He scammed me for 800$ - after that he took me out of his friends list
    1. I hope you can delete him from this forum and pernamently ban him and his IP so it wont happen to others
    2. I hope he use this money for medicines

    I'm pretty sure this scammer is already under a new forum username, new skype and new IP already working on building up his post count to 15 so that he can PM members and scam others. Lesson learned, don't do business with newbies.

    I knew this guy was a scammer. I spoke to him a few times about buying some paypal accounts. He told me the same thing that once I paid him, he would have to transfer the funds and then provide me the account details. That's when I stopped talking to him.
