I've never had a bad transaction on this forum. It is really unfortunate that a handful of people have to ruin it. How the op can recover some of his money.

Yeah don't gift money through Paypal for goods. Like you said, you now have no recourse through your intermediary.

PayPal shut my account down for a couple weeks for gifting rather than paying the 4%. If a person asks me to gift payment, I'll just add 4% and pay the normal way. CYA.

They shut your account down? That's news to me.

I know this doesn't help but I don't buy anything from anyone on here that has less then a few hundred posts. People with just a few posts are probably on here just looking to dump or scam on the classifieds.

yea i know i dont do it either but i gave this guy the benefit of the doubt. sucks for anyone else who got duped too i feel for ya guys. at least it wasnt a more expensive piece like forks or exhaust. ive learned two lessons from this; 1. always notice the red flags like post count and how many places the guy said he was living in, 2. from now on pay the 4% fee on paypal.

It would be to their advantage to do it too, because they lose out on the transaction cost AND they had to pay (pay pal did) for my return shipping. Oh well >_>
he used a different paypal account email. i just hope this doesnt happened to anyone else on here. he seems to come back with a new username every few months looking for ppl who WTB stuff. He ships from a PO box in rohnert park CA and says he lives in one place, moves to another, then ships from this PO box. trust me guys, its worth it to pay the 4% fee.

Well if he comes back every few months he's always going to be a newbie. I don't even look at an ad if the member has less then 200 posts no matter how cheap it is. Large items require a much higher post count or serious forum interaction so I know who they are.

Ah yes the Rohnert Park PO box. I enjoyed being on the phone with that post office for a week or so, I think I talked to every employee in that place. He waited till the very last day to pick up the forks before they were return shipped to me. I wanted to light this guy on fire, no joke. We need the 675 crew to wait outside that PO for him lol. Am I bitter? Yeah a bit, but people like him piss me off and ruin the buying experience for everyone here. This is by far one of the best communities out there as far as a collective knowledge, trust, and respect for each other. I like for us to maintain this kind of integrity, but little shits like that tend to ruin it for both new and old members. *rant off*
