Well I did open an investigation with paypal about this matter. So I will wait and see what happens. And I didn;t start this thread so people could say how stupid pp gift users are..I can almost bet....99.9% of buyers and sellers have used it at least once.....but with using it comes risks....and I took another risk and got burned.....so I'll post what happens with paypal...they have 10 days to complete their investigation.
gusnjax and I got burnt by the same seller. He got me for $180 for an extender. (guess I'll put another ad in the "WTB" section!) Yes, I paid with "gift" my mistake, last time I will use gift option. Expensive lesson for us both. Sad that our world has scammers like this we honest members have to deal with. Thank you to all the honest members I have dealt with!
