Got a tracking number still pending drop-off... I guess I'm not getting my $250 bag of half eaten Cheetos

He was also trolling WTB threads under at least (2) other different user names other than 'Windwhisper' & 'Gonewiththewind' - PM me about a WTB Diff tool post 2X - one sending me to some 'friend' he knew that had one, & under the other username he would never supply pics (guess he wasn't able to use Google well enough to find someone else's pics of the tool)

So I was told you can go to ic3.gov and file a report for internet crimes. If we all file a report they may investigate

I was also a victim of this scammer but PayPal was able to process my return quickly (within a week) after I submitted a claim. I am glad I did not send money using friends and family.

I feel for you all... this is a lesson - don't buy from someone without taking a cursory look at their posts and history. He was first called out as a scammer on Dec 31 here: https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1681539

that's why when i do pay via paypal, i always use my credit card so i can do a charge back if paypal fails me.

that said, not going to lie. i sell stuff here all the time and ask for friends/family but offer the option to pay as goods/service if buyer pays the fee. that plus itrader feedback is key...

Plus paying the fees is only a few dollars.

Keep in mind that this real estate agent might be a victim of identity theft. The forum scammer may have chosen a random phone number that just happens to belong to this guy.

If you decide to tip off Compass Real Estate, I would encourage you NOT to directly accuse him of being a crook. Instead, you should say that it looks like he might be the guy who ripped you off.

You could also contact the California Department of Real Estate.
