Ebanned sellers and Dommes beware of a bidder hypnotoy797.
He had won one of my auctions that recently closed for the sum of $200. Sent a charming email mentioning that he is a fan of my clips yadda yadda. Insists on paying via ppal. I checked his feedback and spotted good feedback from a few familiar seller names and, despite the hesitation and gut-feeling something would go awry, I chanced it.
I did mention in the listing that I do not accept pooh-pal as a payment method, after the fact, he tells me that is the only way he can pay for it. My gut feelings confirmed, do not trust hypnotoy797, but tell myself ‘ think positive’.
One word. Shady.
The fun begins. He sends the payment — wait for it —
and the next day does a charge back, slamming my poop-pal acct into an investigation.
Naturally, he blames it on them , and says ” they are stupid” .
However, here’s the issue I have with ebanned – I had the instinct that he was shady from the start, despite the feedback but couldn’t cancel his bids.
To add insult , I now am stuck paying a charge back penalty. Not worth the hassle. Lesson learned – take my advice and block hypnotoy797, he’s scammer.
