    Hey guys, just a warning: this seller scammed me. I paid $430 to him, it never shipped and he never refunded my money. PayPal could get me nothing. He contacted me via email a few times saying he didnt have any money but would get it to me somehow. Well, a few months later, nothing. 100% scam.

    Sorry this happend to you.
    But thank you for bringing this out in the open so others won't be scammed as well. Please also leave him negative Heat so users on other forums will know as well. Hope you get your money back now that he's been exposed. You could also contact trollhunters.com

    I was able to talk to him on the phone once before. I guess his internet has been down for awhile and cant get on the net to email me updates. but is been around 3 months now I think. He just called me back, nice person to talk to. He says he dosent have the money to pay me back but it looks like he is working on it. We will see what happens. I called USPS and they say the package was never recieved but the paypal electronic info was recieved. Thanks everyone for the helpful response!

    I guess I can take back my claim of a complete scam so far. Still, it has been a very long time, all with $0 refunded to me.

    Doesn't matter how nice someone is, fact of the matter is. He has your money! And his excuse that he doesn't have the money right now doesn't ignore the fact that he ripped you off. Sorry but if I were you I wouldn't be so willing to wait.

    I could show you proof he's been online with no significant break the entire time you've been waiting....

    Seems he's just buying more time with more lies.... fairly common behavior for a troll

    Okay, before the lunch mob gets out of hand...

    It's been just over two months, not three, if you scroll down a few posts you'll see when dibs was called.

    I agree it is unacceptable but sometimes s&%# does happen. I bought a GPS from ProphetX and got it promptly, I believe other people here have also dealt with him. While that doesn't mean you should have to wait for your money it seems less likely he is a scammer, I'd have thought scammers scam then vanish.

    As I told you in my PM I IM'd him and he then called you, that doesn't resolve things but is at least promising. I think you, Viper, are going about this with a level head and hoping for the best, good for you. I'm not so sure about everyone else, it seems like a bit of a mob mentality, the uninformed yet opinionated looking for a fight to join in.

    Let's say for sake of argument that he was selling his XBox because he needed cash. He got the cash, shipped the box and used the money for whatever the pressing need was. If the carrier then lost it we start on a whole painful claim process that could easily take months.

    It's not great, it doesn't happen often but it does happen.

    So, over 2 months.

    Yes, your right, he's not your one time scammer that quickly disappears. Many people have had good dealings with him. But Viper has not. That is what's important here.

    I'm assuming I'm at least included in that statement, if not the sole person it's intended for. So I must ask you then, do you have inside knowledge of the details of this trade? I'm going to assume you don't. So, you're uninformed, and just shared your opinion. Looks like you just joined in too.

    Sure, that could have happened. But then why lie about not being able to get online?

    Prophet has a good track record. So its great to hope that this is just a misunderstanding that will get cleared up. But don't close your eyes and hope for the best. Right now is the time to trust your gut feeling and call it like you see it! If it was your money, how would you feel?
