Its my own fault I'm just to nice. I sold a phone to a guy in Estonia for £200 as he only paid £8 for postage I didn't get the item tracked, he seemed genuine enough.
He is now saying 'where is the phone'. He deals with phones all day long I have checked his feedback. I would honestly believe the guy if I didn't read his feedback. He trys this scam once a month gets full refund and leaves negative feedback, fantastic.
I am now -£200 in my PayPal account.
I need to make this guy suffer 2 wrongs in this situation make a right.
This is my Karma I'm a genuine guy but I will not be ripped off.
Same thing happened to me I sold a bike power commander for £150, bloke said he hadn't received it, didn't give it a second chance just wanted his money back, paypal didn't argue and I ended up losing £150. only consolation I managed to claim £40 off royal mail. I now send everything recorded.
