I posted the following advert in the Buy Sell & Trade section of the forum: - WTB: BlackBerry Tour 9630
A seller by the name of Crystal Baker emailed me to say she had one available for sale and she would send me one all in for $400, to which i agreed after emailing her SEVERAL times to ensure it was actually there and in her possession.
I paid via PayPal and a week later the money left my account. Since then there has been no communications and no word from her. I have already escalated this to PayPal however i just have this small niggle that i might be $400 out of pocket.
First of all can the mods keep the above topic in the forum for the time being? Also can the mods check to see if a user with the email address of
is registered on this site? And lastly can we ensure that the Buy, Sell & Trade sections of the forum have access only to those who are either members or even introduce a paid subscription service enabling only those who are paid members access to this.
I never though i would see the day where i was scammed however it does seem as though i wasn't cautious enough.
Any advice would be great
