    Exclamation Possible Scam! Be careful !

    Hi, all,

    Please be careful when you deal with new ID in this forum. I just bought two FAKE rackets from a new ID in this forum. The new ID asked me to pay through paypal. I checked the paypal account, it belongs to an old ID with good reputation in this forum. Therefore, I paid without any doubt.

    The new ID totally disappeared after sending me the tracking number. The old ID admitted to be the new ID's friend in our email communications and guranteed the reliable source of those rackets. The old ID allowed the new ID to withdraw my payment from his account by giving the new ID his paypal user name and password.

    After I received the rackets and found they are fake, I contact the old ID because I don't have email of the new ID and the new ID's private message box is full. Now the old ID asked me to directly contact the new ID by giving me email and cell number of the new ID. Unfortunately, the cell number is not in service and I haven't got any response from the email.

    I am trying to solve this problem now. I would rather believe this is an misunderstanding and the new ID didn't know the rackets are fake. However, it seems that there is slim chance I can get my money back.

    I will update later if there is new informations. PLEASE BE CAREFUL !!!

    Hi, bro, thanks for your care,

    I have figured out what happened and prefer to solve this in private first. I am waiting for response ...
    I still would rather believe this is a misunderstanding.

    Hi deltad:

    Be sure to put in a paypal dispute if they aren't responding to you. Paypal recommends you put in the paypal dispute as you are working things out and than cancel the dispute once resolved.

    Oh I forgot to mention deltad that you have 45 days to open the dispute from the date of purchase. I recently had to put one in as a I bought a defective item that the vendor said was going to replace for me but they dragged it over the 45 day mark. I kept all my e-mails and paypal made an exception for me and let me open a case but told me to next time open the case first.

    Hope things work out for you.
