    I fell for his or the groups scam. Used PayPal today and I'm working on canceling it. I couldn't get a phone call through for some mystery reason they said. I got a different contact email or phone number to use Venmo and PayPal and then for a PayPal screenshot. They couldn't send a request to me, I had to make a payment to them which I did as a purchase to get the buyer protection. They asked for a screenshot of the PayPal transaction that they should have received. I'm more concerned with identity theft now than a few hundred dollars with the little bit of contact info they got. The good thing is PayPal is holding the payment until I receive the item and approved the purchase. 100% scammer and a fraudulent person or group for sure. Kind of stupid too if you search under that name you will find many other forums with the same problem. Of course I'm stupider than them for falling for their scam!

    It's easily done, I was really close to paying but when they asked for a Friends and Family PayPal transaction (that doesn't have buyer protection) under a completely different name, I looked at their account and did some searching which is how I found the road glide thread posted above.

    How do you report users to get them banned?

    Re: scammer,not sure but probably

    Maybe I'm only as stupid as them.

    Using Paypal is a good thing if you use it right. Them not wanting to send me a request for funds let me write up the purchase the way I wanted to with a very accurate description and returns if the item didn't meet them. Also very important to make it a purchase, not a friends and family thing. I contacted PayPal before sending any money and they assured me I would not be liable or any type of scam or fraud because I had the buyer protection. I still worried about the hassle of making a claim and them trying to get my money back if it didn't work out.

    I contacted PayPal this morning and after explaining my concerns they decided to start a dispute. This is actually a perfect way to proceed. I want the part and there might be a 1% (or less) chance I'll get it, but PayPal is now looking at this very closely. They told the seller or whoever owns the PayPal account that a dispute has been started and that they have a narrow window to ship the item to me. If I ever get it I must approve the payment only if it meets the description.

    I feel pretty good that other than wasting a few hours I should be covered and with another not too painful lesson learned.
