Have you tried to contact him outside of POTN?

I would start the process with PayPal.

File with PayPal, try to pm a mod to see if he was banned for scamming.

Good luck, i hope you did not use gift payment.

Could be banned for any number of reasons.
In the listing it says the seller says needing money for hospital bills (or similar) - could be that he/she is back in hospital. Regardless - if item is overdue and seller says shipped then I would not waste any time getting in touch with Paypal and/or credit card Company.

Yeah, that's the reason I didn't put his name in the thread. I paid with regular paypal...so hopefully paypal will take care this.

On one hand, you hope he is not back in the hospital, and on the other that may be the best reason why he could not respond to e-mail. If he is indeed a scammer, then you might not be the only one as he sold a few lens fairly quickly..though no feedback at all. Very glad to know you have paid via Pypal regular in this case.

Must be the same fellow that I bought a lens from :(
Still waiting...he's been banned, can't email or PM him.
Happened about two weeks ago.....get the picture .
I already called pp, and calling Visa in the morning.

Just file for claim dude. Two weeks is a bit long. I understand he may be dealing with health issues, and god bless him/her but you need to look after yourself. Hope you get this issue resolved.

yep, I was little wary opening this thread because he might be dealing with health issues...but as he has sold 5 or 6 lenses, want to find out if anyone really got it.
Just filed a PP claim.

gandroid, was it for a 50 1.4? If yes, then it's from the same guy that scammed me and ateet. He tried to sell us the same item, took our money then disappeared. I filed a complaint to Paypal. I hope you paid him thru regular paypal.

Apparently you did not follow the rules Here, especially:

This is your transaction. It is in your best interests to use traceable lines of communication such as e-mail or the telephone to conduct your business.

If you must use PM then feel free to do so but doing so you must understand that in case of trouble POTN will not give you any PM logs or user trace info because we are not part of the deal in any way. We do not guarantee that PM's reach their targets, either. When using your own email you have your own logs and also possibly your own ISP there to help you in trace.


It is up to you to verify buyer's/seller's integrity and it is up to you to manage transaction safely.


TO GET TO KNOW SELLER, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT SELLERS PRIOR POSTS AND DISCUSSIONS AT POTN. YOU CAN DO IT BY CLICKING USER NAME ON THE LEFT SIDE AREA AND SELECTING "VIEW MORE POSTS BY....".

You are on your own. I would suggest that you file a complaint with PayPal immediately.


Bless the recently fallen and their family and friends.
I have a Cannon with me at all times. You can't take the shot if you don't have something with which to shoot. :rolleyes:
That which does not kill me ~~ Should Run.

No more PayPal gift payment requests.

so...it sounds like you've been scammed...definitely start contacting paypal....

but in the meantime...i did a simple search for the name he was using, and was able to come up with a few things...

his/her photobucket profile: http://s1170.photobuck​et.com/profile/SnapItQ​uick (external link)
a craigslist ad with phone #: http://wichita.craigsl​ist.org/crs/2902010368​.html (external link)

you can see that the images he posted here are the same as the person in the craigslist ad...also one of the posts here mentions going from la to kansas...the craigslist ad is in whichita....

if i were out the money, i'd give him/her a call, i think people are a lot more willing to answer phone calls than emails...especially if they know that you know a lot more about them then they think...,but do what you want...good luck
