Hey folks, it's a sad day for me. I have a thread "WTB: catless downpipes for x-drive" this person reached out to me (bnweurotuning) pm'ed me and told me he/she has a set of downpipes. I was super excited as I just bought my car. The scammer sent me a picture of the downpipes, I liked them, so on, so forth. We agreed that I will give half the payment right away and then I will send the rest when the scammer ships it. I sent $115 USD through PayPal about 24 hrs ago I was told they were going to be shipped the following morning. so now it's been a day I have not received any response from the seller.

I am a 19 yr old student and I can't afford to loose $115. I'm really upset I struggle to pay for my university and this happens, it really hurts I don't make much, but whatever I make I love to spend on my n54.

I really hope no one else goes through this
AGAIN THE USER IS:
bmweurotuning
stay away from this account

ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HELP I WOULD APPRECIATE. THANKS

Did you use goods and services on PayPal? Because if you did you can contact PayPal and start a claim against the user

Hey Daniel, I did but it's a hassle. I will definitely try but it hurts after all the excitement I had for these DPs. I know there just downpipes but now I'm scared to trust and buy anything on thread. I really liked e90post buy and selling thread, but now it's different

The important thing is to get your money back .lf you sent the money the right way you should be able to get your money back that's what PayPal is for.

Maybe he is busy or something. I would give it more then a day to think you got scammed. Based on your time stamps on your texts you don’t seem very patient. Some people
Have stuff come up etc. just a thought.

I get it man some people are shit heads but don't get distrusted in the whole forum because of one person, I've been buying and selling on these forums and it's been great for me but best way is to go through PayPal, I also read on another sub section that the same person scammed someone else as well so you're not the only victim unfortunately

Any updates? I personally would have given him a bit more time to respond then 1 day before calling him out as a scammer on the forum. So did he respond to you? Or hear anything from PayPal?
