    This individual posted some knives and two lenslight flashlights recently. I 'purchased' the lenslight mini and upon receipt of payment promised to send tracking info "within 48 hrs." Guess what? Haven't heard from him since, despite 3 attempts at contact. Don't worry though, I bitch slapped him by having paypal put a hold on funds. I have also contacted the other members who thought they were dealing with an honest member.

    Does this mean all y'all filed disputes/refunds on this deal? I hope so, and it comes out good for you.
    This kind of shit makes it all the harder for new guys to sell here...; fucker!
    FWIW he hasn't been on since 8/22; maybe he got hit by a train on the way to the P.O.

    If this guy didn't get hit by a train he is a real dick. Actually he's a dick, even if he did get hit by a train.

    Hey brother, make sure it's Devill with a capital "D"... but ya, I just thought I had to share that other info with you earlier... the M/O is he acquires funds from fake sales to buy high-end stuff...

    didnt see this until now so i figured i would respond

    the night before i was going to ship all the items, i received an email from paypal saying my account had been restricted and i needed to provide invoices for the items sold, as I was a new member and had racked up a considerable amount of money from selling what I had in that thread. I had cleared all the packages as 'shipped' on paypal, but had not shipped them yet, as it was well past the time the PO was open.

    I called paypal, and they requested a ridiculous amount of information, and since the cash I made from the transactions in the thread was locked and could not be used, I attempted to issue refunds to every buyer, but IT WILL NOT LET ME. I have to provide my drivers license, social security, invoices of items - all after having a cc and confirmed bank account. I did all this, and they still kept my account locked and are asking for utility bills, w2 forms - way too much information for make using paypal worthwhile. I have responded to their 'requests for more information' and I still cannot issue refunds. The only thing I can do is let each claim made run its course and let the buyer get their money back through paypal, which is exactly whats happening. I havent done anything but follow their instructions and they're still holding my account ransom.

    Sorry for the super shitty transaction, but i had NO intention of ripping anyone off. I just have no way to issue a refund because these jackasses wont let me do anything but give them more information. I dont plan on selling anything on this forum anymore, to save myself and others the hassle.

    Hope this explanation is satisfactory and I'll keep calling them and asking them to directly refund each person who paid me, but until that happens - I'm just letting them return the buyers money as they should - and have based on what i saw.

    @Devill/A5AP-001,
    Doesn't look like you've been on here for quite some time...BUT we know that you've been on BF over the past few days making your deals over there.

    So, you gave your excuses about PayPal - what about those who were awaiting their knives and gear? And what do you have to say about your e-mail? Did that suddenly not work either? Or don't you know how to respond?

    WTF?

    Why didn't you tell everyone waiting on their knives about your paypal issue? You just figured fuck them, while you get hassled?

    Your lack of communication with buyers does nothing to engender trust, then or now.
