Using bitcoins for transactions with newbies would also be a good way to protect yourself from idiot scammers like this. Gift payments may not work either - they can claim their account was hacked and paypal will still reverse the charge. Buyer always seems to win with paypal.

Bitcoin transactions are not reversible.
Not much good if you're the one being scammed?

LOL, he's threatening to sue you cos he got trolled on an online forum? Please, if this guy does take legal action, film it so I can upload it to YouTube and make millions off his stupidity :D

I think I may need some compensation for laughing my ass off too hard.

Things.exe has encountered serious lolz and needs to close

The guy is a jack ass and obviously has a small d*ck syndrome. All he has done so far is gloat over his PP win and now he's looking for more, a typical pathetic scam artist...

Be sure to keep all correspondence PM's and even info from these threads saved. One that springs to mind is his image with him holding a gun and threatening us. I just checked and he has already deleted it, so I hope someone actually saved it?

I hope you get the PP decision reversed, it really bugs me when people get away with crap like this. Good luck :beer:

Edit: If it makes you feel any better you said you were out $360 plus $225 to build the laser. If he paid you $360 and you now have to return $360 that only leaves you the cost of building the laser...So even though it is a lot of money, its not as much as you thought! ;)

that is so wrong on PayPal I was told if it shows delivered you there ok or is that just with ebay? Paypay got me on some drivers from China was told to send back registered mail and I would be ok, I did and he would not sign for them, so I am out $200 see video paypal I am out $200 sent back registered Mail - YouTube make a video put it on youtube and let people know . I told paypal I can not make some one in china sign for package
Yeah tell me about it. I have been fighting them for about 3 months over it. Then they just closed my account(and the second one i made after they did that) and said there is nothing i can do. So basically i can never have a paypal account in my name ever again! All because of some ****WIT that stole over $3700 off me!!! Also, paypal stole the couple of hundred dollars i already had in my PP account when the dispute was opened.

And bitcoin is fantastic, for seller's.. If a buyer can trust the seller 100%, that's great.. But then if something does legitimately go wrong then they have zero recourse..
I use bitcoin all the time.. I really do think it will be the future currency online..

Nope, but that's why it would work well for small trusted communities like LPF. We know we can trust most of the people here and the sellers can be protected from the noobs (which is where nearly all the scams seem to come from)

You know, he did post a pic of himself right here on these forums essentially implying a death threat. Tell his lawyers to shove that in their pipe and smoke it.

How about we start a anti scammer fund? I have sold things on PP. To XDA forum members mind you and I am glad that i haven't had any disputes. Never really thought about it till I started reading about it and finding about how much BS it is. I might even start doing what the OP has decided to do. It might be way better and safer.

I still can't believe they have done what has happened.. -.-' I feel for you and would donate a couple bucks to a relief fund.

Let the community know that I do not blame Wolfman or his driver for this debacle. The blame relies on myself for selling to him in the way I did, and on mattdy58 for his criminal behavior.

I am running the same driver in my 3W Kryton, and I am getting very nice duty cycles out of it. I am presuming it was a battery issue, but I never had the chance to find out.

If someone here was contacted to repair his laser for him, please let me know about it. I need ample evidence to protect myself in this situation.

That is a very kind offer. One I'd normally refuse. But, as I am in the hole so deeply now, it's hard to do so. PM me if you want my PP email.
