    Even though it's not a pleasure to post something here but I think I have to do something about this before anyone else got scammed again.

    I posted on the Want To Buy section that I wanted an aged Amazon Associates account. Member Xdurance pm me that he had one and he want to talk more via Skype. We had some talk about the account, he sent me some screenshots like I demanded and I agreed to buy it. He wanted 145$ or 100.

    Firstly he wanted me to buy 2 steam codes for the payment. But I just couldn't buy it so he finally gave me his Paypal account. I sent him 100 and for some reason Paypal put that money on hold for investigation. He said that Paypal do this randomly, no need to worry and I should pay him in another way.

    So we come back to the old way of buying steam codes. But this time I want it to be secured so I wanted to send him a 100$ steam code first, then he give me the Amazon with Gmail account. And after he refund my 100 in the beginning, I will send him the 50$ to finish the payment. He agreed on that. But after I sent him the first 100$ code, he said that he misread it and he thought I would send him a 100 one, not a 100$ one. I was really angry at that moment but he said he had filled a refund request and called Paypal as well, they should refund my money in no time. So I trust him and send him the 50$ code. But after that, he gone. He deleted my Skype from his Skype.

    Below is the full chat log without personal information (I want to edit out the gibberish part but I just couldn't do it so I guess I will post the full chat log):

    [4/25/2016 6:39:09 PM] Grant: do you want the account by the way
    [4/25/2016 6:39:18 PM] Grant: or do you want to talk all day
    [4/25/2016 6:39:50 PM] Thanh: I won't waste your time anymore, I think I have enough information
    [4/25/2016 6:40:09 PM] Thanh: even we only had a little chat but you looks like a guy I can trust
    [4/25/2016 6:40:26 PM] Thanh: it's the internet after all, have to be extra careful
    [4/25/2016 6:40:43 PM] Thanh: you still have 100$ in your account right?
    [4/25/2016 6:41:10 PM] Grant: yeah so I want like 245
    [4/25/2016 6:41:24 PM] Grant: i can withdraw just have to add another withdrawel method
    [4/25/2016 6:41:32 PM] Grant: shall i withdraw it
    [4/25/2016 6:41:46 PM] Grant: or do u want to keep it on until you have more?
    [4/25/2016 6:42:00 PM] Thanh: yes, go ahead. I'd be more comfortable with an empty account
    [4/25/2016 6:42:37 PM] Grant: ok i think 145 is a fair price
    [4/25/2016 6:43:22 PM] Thanh: 145$ is still a little much though, I bought an account from a guy a few days earlier that still have 90$ in his account with the price of 170$
    [4/25/2016 6:43:31 PM] Thanh: can you reduce it?
    [4/25/2016 6:43:49 PM] Grant: no i will just sell on seo clerks or something

    [4/25/2016 6:47:02 PM] Thanh: what is your paypal account?
    [4/25/2016 6:47:28 PM] Grant: $145 is 100 gbp
    [4/25/2016 6:47:40 PM] Thanh: so you only accept gbp?
    [4/25/2016 6:47:51 PM] Grant: no i want you to buy something
    [4/25/2016 6:47:55 PM] Grant: in gbp
    [4/25/2016 6:48:08 PM] Thanh: I thought you can accept it in Paypal

    [4/25/2016 6:49:28 PM] Thanh: ok then, but paying in sum is too risky for me as well
    [4/25/2016 6:49:33 PM] Thanh: can we split it?
    [4/25/2016 6:49:44 PM] Grant: paying in sum?
    [4/25/2016 6:49:52 PM] Thanh: some money when you send me the account and the rest when everything is done

    [4/25/2016 10:21:30 PM] Thanh: well, you have to wait then....
    [4/25/2016 10:21:41 PM] Thanh: what bad luck
    [4/25/2016 10:21:53 PM] Grant: u cant get a 50 dollar code
    [4/25/2016 10:21:58 PM] Grant: and call it 5 dollars compensation
    [4/25/2016 10:22:02 PM] Grant: for taking my paypal from me
    [4/25/2016 10:22:08 PM] Grant: i would be a lot happier :)
    [4/25/2016 10:22:39 PM] Thanh: well, I thought it's been like that since the beginning: 100 pounds or 100$+50$
    [4/25/2016 10:23:13 PM] Grant: yeah i thought last card u were getting was gbp....
    [4/25/2016 10:23:30 PM] Grant: 145 US Dollar equals
    100.00 British Pound
    [4/25/2016 10:24:02 PM] Thanh: well, there is no 100gbp card anyway, 50 is max
    [4/25/2016 10:24:22 PM] Thanh: and just for safety, I have to do it like this
    [4/25/2016 10:24:41 PM] Thanh: it's really unfortunate for both of us
    [4/25/2016 10:24:48 PM] Thanh: but we have to do it this way
    [4/25/2016 10:25:49 PM] Grant: i said i wanted 145 man
    [4/25/2016 10:26:22 PM] Thanh: yes, I know, but we have to do it like this because my 100 pounds fate is on your hand
    [4/25/2016 10:26:30 PM] Thanh: just like I said earlier
    [4/25/2016 10:26:33 PM] Grant: no its not
    [4/25/2016 10:26:37 PM] Grant: its in paypals
    [4/25/2016 10:26:43 PM] Grant: my account could be lost yet
    [4/25/2016 10:26:45 PM] Grant: i don't know
    [4/25/2016 10:27:07 PM] Thanh: based on everything I read till now
    [4/25/2016 10:27:19 PM] Thanh: paypal do this to protect the seller, not the buyer
    [4/25/2016 10:27:49 PM] Thanh: even if they do it randomly, it's for the seller
    [4/25/2016 10:28:00 PM] Thanh: I don't think your account will be lost
    [4/25/2016 10:28:43 PM] Grant: i just want my knife
    [4/25/2016 10:28:51 PM] Grant: then u can have the acount
    [4/25/2016 10:28:57 PM] Grant: that is all that i want.......

    [4/25/2016 10:29:29 PM] Thanh: I just can't put all the risk in my part

    [4/25/2016 10:29:32 PM] Grant: one minute i get 100
    [4/25/2016 10:29:35 PM] Grant: then its held
    [4/25/2016 10:29:43 PM] Grant: then we talk for like 5 hours
    [4/25/2016 10:29:46 PM] Grant: i almost get fired
    [4/25/2016 10:29:50 PM] Grant: i still got no knife
    [4/25/2016 10:29:53 PM] Grant: no paypal
    [4/25/2016 10:29:58 PM] Grant: u want my shoes 2?
    [4/25/2016 10:30:01 PM] Grant: ;)
    [4/25/2016 10:30:42 PM] Thanh: just leave the knife out of the picture man
    [4/25/2016 10:31:05 PM] Thanh: it's business, and I can't put all risk in my part without anything
    [4/25/2016 10:31:18 PM] Thanh: you got no knife
    [4/25/2016 10:31:32 PM] Thanh: and now I don't even know the fate of my 100$ and 100 pounds at the moment
    [4/25/2016 10:32:21 PM] Thanh: it's nearly 250$
    [4/25/2016 10:32:27 PM] Thanh: without anything to protect me
    [4/25/2016 10:32:51 PM] Grant: u know im not even using the damn account
    [4/25/2016 10:32:54 PM] Grant: its principle
    [4/25/2016 10:33:02 PM] Grant: i have money in the bank.

    [4/25/2016 10:33:13 PM] Grant: i got 100 and no paypal.
    [4/25/2016 10:33:43 PM] Thanh: why are you making this so hard?
    [4/25/2016 10:33:48 PM] Thanh: we're both at risk here
    [4/25/2016 10:34:09 PM] Thanh: i'm not a scammer, you're not then your account will be fine
    [4/25/2016 10:34:24 PM] Thanh: if you have money in the bank you can always use your card
    [4/25/2016 10:34:44 PM] Thanh: and why did you said it works for you in the first place
    [4/25/2016 10:34:53 PM] Thanh: then now you want everything
    [4/25/2016 10:35:03 PM] Grant: i said it works for me i misread it as 100 not $100
    [4/25/2016 10:35:24 PM] Thanh: how did you misread it when I said clearly in the sentence
    [4/25/2016 10:35:32 PM] Thanh: I said a 100$ and a 50$ later
    [4/25/2016 10:35:40 PM] Thanh: and I even use the $ symbol
    [4/25/2016 10:35:45 PM] Thanh: how did you misread that
    [4/25/2016 10:35:55 PM] Grant: i don't know

    [4/25/2016 10:36:29 PM] Thanh: if you want someone to put your anger at, put at Paypal
    [4/25/2016 10:36:34 PM] Thanh: I sent you the money
    [4/25/2016 10:36:38 PM] Thanh: Paypal decided to hold it

    [4/25/2016 10:37:49 PM] Thanh: I did sent you 100 pounds
    [4/25/2016 10:37:55 PM] Thanh: now I gave you a 100$ card
    [4/25/2016 10:37:56 PM] Grant: that got held

    [4/25/2016 10:57:22 PM] Thanh: you mean in my payment to you?
    [4/25/2016 10:57:44 PM] Thanh: because we don't use postal address here, I just fill the zip code as <> because it's my city zip code

    [4/25/2016 11:04:03 PM] Grant: is there anything under your action required?
    [4/25/2016 11:04:11 PM] Thanh: the status changed from "waiting for seller's respond" to "being reviewed by Paypal"
    [4/25/2016 11:04:18 PM] Grant: yeah...
    [4/25/2016 11:04:25 PM] Thanh: so I guess they demand the seller to contact them directly
    [4/25/2016 11:04:28 PM] Thanh: fuck that bullshit
    [4/25/2016 11:04:32 PM] Grant: i did im on phone lol

    [4/25/2016 11:07:59 PM] Grant: lol
    [4/25/2016 11:08:06 PM] Thanh: 50$ incoming
    [4/25/2016 11:08:11 PM] Grant: paypal decided to hold $148
    [4/25/2016 11:08:18 PM] Grant: because paypal are greeeeedy fucks
    [4/25/2016 11:08:23 PM] Thanh: I wasted 8$ with the Paypal fee
    [4/25/2016 11:08:32 PM] Grant: that will get returned
    [4/25/2016 11:08:35 PM] Grant: u know what fuck them
    [4/25/2016 11:08:39 PM] Grant: im going to call again!
    [4/25/2016 11:08:46 PM] Grant: i got nothing but time paypal!

    [4/25/2016 11:09:08 PM] Thanh: thanks man, you made me feel a lot better
    [4/25/2016 11:09:16 PM] Thanh: fuck this mess
    [4/25/2016 11:13:10 PM] Thanh: the 50$ card is on top
    [4/25/2016 11:13:26 PM] Grant: Whats the code
    [4/25/2016 11:13:51 PM] Thanh: <Steam code information>
    [4/25/2016 11:14:45 PM] Grant: k hold on
    [4/25/2016 11:15:07 PM] Thanh: if this is not a nightmare, I don't know what is

    And he gone after that. My only hope right now is the 100 GBP that Paypal is still holding right now. I've filed an unauthorized payment but I don't know if it would help much. So at this point I just assumed that I was scammed for 300$.

    Xdurance has been notified he has 48 hours to respond.

    I am approving this SL even though you have not notified him of a possible SL and given 72 hours afterwards - and the reason is that he blocked you on skype, showing intent.

    Now I'm sorry, but I have to ask - ARE YOU SERIOUS?? He joined 20 DAYS AGO... he has 25 spammed messages, short messages 1-3 mins apart (which I removed so he can't PM until this is is settled). If you're going to donate your money, at least send it to a legit charity.

    All that being said, I hope he surprises me and either refunds you or provides the account.

    PS. Reminder to all who have current issues, keep it PROFESSIONAL. No name calling or other insults.

    Reminder to everyone else:
    Shit list rule #4:
    If you are not directly related to the situation, or are not offering information directly related to the situation: do not post in the thread.

    Thank you so much OldSalt for the fast approval, I appreciated it.

    And you don't have to say sorry to ask that question, I was naive and made a mistake. I was being really cautious in the beginning, I checked his profile here as well but I just thought that maybe he just knew about this forum, not likely but possible.

    Well, I will take your word for it, next time I will choose a legit charity to donate to.

    In the mean time, I've contacted Paypal for the money that they're still put on hold if I can somehow take that back. I'm not sure if I can get that back but have to do what I can.

    I was looking for a coder and literally 3 of the 5 people that messaged me got banned. Xdurance was also messaging me. I learned to never trust a noob account ever.

    Just a quick question.

    The case is now closed but should I post the skype id that he used to scammed me here so everyone know about it?

    And I want to give a quick shoutout to hotdew. I can't reply to your PM but I want to say thank you for your message, I appreciated it very much.

    Thanks OldSalt,

    His Skype address is grant2fair

    And please tell me if this is not allowed here OldSalt but I saw an account here potentially was created by him because of the similarity between his Skype name atm and his account and his posting pattern. But because starting a witch-hunt with just that information is not a good idea so no name is given.

    Damn!! how you can sent him another $50 card? just how?

    that's really sucks.. i am trying my best to reporting new SCAMMERS on this forums.. lot of my clients on Skype from BHW ask me before they do deal with any new person on BHW if the seller comes with 20 to 80+ posts or newbie status.

    Hey Asif, where did that screenshot come from?

    It's been a while since I came back here. Yes, at that moment I already sensed something was not right, but I was naive and think that after I sent him the other 50$, everything would be good. Well, that was not the case. Thank you for stopping by.

    You should google search every bit of information someone gives you. You cab google search their Skype, paypal address if thats how you're paying.

    It won't work for everyone you deal with, but if you know their location you can likely find a seller on facebook. Will work well if they are a real person and not using a fake name.
