    I contacted GTISH99 via skype when he posted about iPhone Lifeproof cases on this forum.

    After talking to him for a bit and having him send pictures with the cases and a sheet of paper with my name and date/time to ensure he had the cases I decided to buy 50 of them. He assured me he would be sending them out and not drop shipping them.
    [3/7/2013 5:43 PM] Douglife: you drop shipping these to me?
    [3/7/2013 5:37:12 PM] Mr. Knuckles: Nope
    [3/7/2013 5:37:17 PM] Mr. Knuckles: i have them

    I started questioning things a day later when he sent me the following messages:
    [3/8/2013 8:04:29 AM] Mr. Knuckles: You're good with the cases. I should get the tracking by tomorrow.
    [3/8/2013 8:04:32 AM] Mr. Knuckles: keeping you informed
    [3/8/2013 8:04:41 AM] Mr. Knuckles: or by sunday latest
    [3/8/2013 8:04:47 AM] Mr. Knuckles: so in a week you should have it

    This immediately threw up a flag that he wasn't actually shipping them out himself but instead that they were going to be drop shipped supposedly. This set of messages confirms this.
    [3/9/2013 11:48:52 AM] Mr. Knuckles: Whats up man
    [3/9/2013 11:49:14 AM] Mr. Knuckles: Sorry about the hold up. Was informed tracking will be available tomorrow.
    [3/9/2013 11:49:32 AM] Douglife: alright sounds good, so it is being drop shipped then?
    [3/9/2013 11:49:41 AM] Mr. Knuckles: Not per say
    [3/9/2013 11:49:52 AM] Mr. Knuckles: It is my warehouse

    Finally he says it was shipped but did not have a tracking number even though this is "his warehouse"
    [3/11/2013 4:20:10 PM] Mr. Knuckles: Hey Doug
    [3/11/2013 4:20:44 PM] Mr. Knuckles: Its been shipped. Im waiting for tracking but you can rest assured it's on the way :)
    [3/11/2013 4:09 PM] Douglife: Alright when will ya have the tracking number?
    [3/11/2013 4:10 PM] Mr. Knuckles: I should have it by tonight or early tomorrow.

    Since that message I have not heard from him nor seen him on skype. I've been trying to follow his posts around various forums trying to prevent this from happening again. I have already filed the dispute with paypal since he billed it to me including a description of what the purchase was. My guess though is that this isn't even his skype nor is it his paypal but instead a purchased one and he was just stalling to get the money out of the paypal.

    If anyone has any further information of what should be done please let me know. I have gathered as much info as I can for the time being on this supposed user name/email address.

    Mods I'll leave it up to your judgement whether or not to delete this. After posting this info seller got in touch with me and did issue a refund.

    All is settled between me and seller though. If mods would like screenshots to verify refunds and skype chat I will be glad to pm them a link to view.

    Well I think you need to shit or get off the pot. He's either a reputable seller and you've made disparaging comments about him and offered no apology or explanation, or he's a scammer that has only refunded your money so that he can scam someone else.

    I tried to deal with him. But I did not knew he's a scammer. I asked him to send me 5 pieces of the product. If it sells well, I will order another lot of 100. But this guy is very strict with his rules and he's unproffessional too. I have his email id though. his name is bob dillon and email id is iaccessories502 at gmail dot com
