Long story short I just got beat on $3200.00. I sold him a 0 mile vr built for boost. The little a**hole said he was from this area. I had over $6000 in this motor. He used a stolen credit card and bought somebody else's paypal account????? I don't really ever use paypal and now I never will again. Since I didn't ship the motor and had him pick it up they won't help me because there is no way to track it http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif . If anybody happens to hear of somebody putting a fresh vr in please let me know.

Ouch man. That's why I won't sell anything without the cold, hard cash in front of me to be counted....
Good luck. This kind of crap really sucks.

I usually only do cash but in this economy its hard for people to come up $3500 in cash. I will never use paypal again, they won't help at all. http://****************.com/smile/emthdown.gif

Word of the wise: Never EVER EVER EVER paypal for something that you are selling or buying and are going to pick up. With no tracking information paypal with reverse the funds.

yup, I had someone try to screw me on a deal like that...tried to be a nice guy and take the paypal because "he needed to go to the ATM", and then he tried to take the money back.
I should have known better when someone shows up to buy something, and 'forgets" to go to the ATM.

Trust me it's cash or nothing from now on. I'm actually canceling my account when I get home.

Got any surveillance cameras around in the area you met the guy at? Maybe you can see a plate number or something? Just a thought...
