Herbsnverbs was going to buy my Wii $400 in Cash. So he said sinc ei had no TR i had to go first so i sent the Wii he got it yesterday. I sent him about 2 PM's yesterday and before he even recive the wii he told me he would send the cash Tuesday or Wednesday Mourning. so then after he recived the wii i gave him a day to respond to my pms he never responded he logged in today and he still never PMed me back. So im guessing hes a scammer. So what should i do because he wont respond to my PM's?

It sounds like he may be ducking you, but I think its too early to be calling him a scammer.

How many feedbacks did he have?

He only has 3 iTrader. Also the thing is he said he would ship when he received tracking number and the information was confirmed and he never sent it out he made up excuses.

Give em a few more days...sometimes things do come up, if he had 3 itraders and it was 100%, id bet something came up and hes not scamming ya.

If it goes for more than a week, id say then something is seriously up.

Canquain, I understand your panic but you should releax just a bit, at least for another day or two. Worst case scenario is that he is scamming you. But you have his name, address, and a written agreement between the two of you. I'm sure it will be no problem filing a dispute and getting whats rightfully yours.

give him a couple of days, even though he logged in he could be busy and intend to respond back to you later. If he still doesn't, notify a moderator.

In the future, when you're selling something expensive like a console you should probably ask for payment first. Cheaper stuff like games isn't too bad to send first.

Honestly, the majority of online traders and sellers use paypal. I know some honest people that don't, but when it comes to something as expensive as a console and they refuse to send payment first, thats a big red flag.

It might loose you a couple of great opportunities but I would restrict my selling to just paypal, the most reliable way of receiving payment.

I wish I could help you out somehow. I really hope that he just signed on for a minute to check things then had to sign off. I know I sign on sometimes from work or class to bump my thread but don't have time to respond to people. Just give him another day or so. If he lives in North FL or South GA I may can help.

To you all saying sit a wait,you will change your tune when you get had,wait my ass....



Get the mod involved now and start calling this tool,also contact trollhunters.com they are the best and if they can help they will.



I cannot belive this place does not have a SAFETRADE set up for situations just like this,TGN has one setup,all it takes is a memeber / mod with perfect 100+ feedback to act as a middleman and hold the payment till the goods have arrived and cleared,simple.



Good luck man,hope it works out but gun to my head,you have been ripped hard by this troll.

Not to jump to conclusions here, but canquain you have a single trade, and this other guy has a total of 3: What the hell are you guys doing trying to complete a transaction like this with that much feedback? Not to mention that, even if he seemed honest, a feedback of '3' does not warrant you sending first...

That is what I thought. He should have paid first since the feedback was only 2 difference, and both very low. Someone asking for money first, and it isn't though paypal is a bad sign to me unless they just had a load of feedback. I hate to judge the guy,but the name he used really stuck out to me for some reason.

I do agree...like said, systems and things that are 100, 200 + and 400 even moreso, you no matter what hold your ground to get the payment first.

Even if you went and did a few small transactions with people and built your FB up to 5 or 10...and then you can at least have a stepping stone to work with someone that will pay up first.
