I dont think many of us here actually believe he resold the item without bothering to inspect the card. The card was sold thru the forums here anyways and then later resold on ebay. I have sold a few items here very quickly using paypall and never have any issues yet. (but i only deal with people with 10+ year [H] accounts)Buyer from cali seems to be the scammer imo. But first buyer shouldve opened to verify. Sucks all around OP. Thats why I hate ebay and PP so much.
Do you still need help with this? I loaded up the Ant Video Downloader plug-in on Firefox and nabbed it, then reuploaded it to my Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1c8RmLi1GYGvh8L5ubWVrP0GW-lvRorTIAnyone know how to download the hippovideo?

Yup. Remember folks, on ebay, the buyer is always right, even if he's a scamming pos.The post over @ TPU was closed- mods said nothing that they can really do as it happend outside of the TPU Forums.
I think most of the people that chimed in also agree that the TPU member and buyer of this card got scammed on eBay.....
Looks like eBay has ruled in favor of the scammer on eBay- he is sending the box with the hard drives back and then the buyer has to refund within 5 business days.

at least you got the product back. I fear the buyer is getting two hard drives backI won a case recently as a seller. Had to fight hard but in the end, they removed the serial number from the unit so I had no way of telling if it was mine or not when I go the broken card back.
Please do! If an account is under 1 year and noobie type status, I move on just to avoid the stupid. Further, if selling to inexperienced traders, I will always record pics/video/SN of the items. Twice I have been burned by bad buyers on this forum(Only forum I really do FS/T on). It would also be nice to limit a thread's age. Some of these threads are years old, you sold the orig item, make a new thread for the new item and close old thread. If someone lives in the FS/T forum like this then argue they should perhaps leverage a market place vs. a forum post to sling their never ending stuff.Banned. Marked bad trader.
Been here 6 months, less than 100 posts.
Maybe we should make FSFT 500 posts +?

I was unable to leave negative feedback. Don't bother with this buyer
In colorado, there are many mine shafts capped natually and by man. The ones capped by men should be easy to open with a bolt cutter or a cordless grinder w/ cutoff wheel.I got a broken one back in place of the working one he stole from me
I differ on this, but I'm waiting to see the thread about this to discuss it more fully.How about we mandate at least 1 year being active? FS/T is a privileged all day long and to me should be earned. 1000 meaningful posts and at least 1 year in. Make the [H] FS/T unobtanium and hard to get like a good private tracker invite to ensure those who are participating are in it for reals.
that and the fact the weasel was claiming the op was paid but then disputed? (Not sure how it would show a negative balance otherwise) How the guy (who claims to be an adult) thought it was legit to drag the OP thru a separate ebay transaction is beyond me, but your right a good bit of people suck.A weasel going through all this work to make a few hundred bucks and then getting ebay scammed is so perfect. Didn't even open your box, lol.
People suck, sorry you had to go through this OP.
Glad to hear that- so sounds like he realized whats going on and the comments on both forums which are pointing that he got scammed on eBay and dropped the paypal case he opened against you? If that is the case Kudos to him!
^^ This. I have my account 2FA protected. I think when dealing with selling things it's a good idea.probably require 2FA enabled to be able to post is FS/FT is a good idea
Well, that's good news. I guess he realized what actually happened and is finally taking responsibility? Sucks you had to go through, but he could have done nothing and left you with the negative balance.
If they use the good and services option, yes. They can dispute it.Just a follow up question really...I have sold a few item here very quickly in the past and usually once i see the person has paid me the agreed paypall amount i go ahead and ship that day. My question is do these people have the option of disputing the money already paid to us sellers here? How was the OP's money disputed to begin with? I dont sell a lot and was just wondering.
gotcha...so you guys who do this often transfer to your bank account ASAP? In case of stuff like this thread is aboutIf they use the good and services option, yes. They can dispute it.
If they use the friends and family gift option, then they can't dispute it through Paypal. However, if they used funded the transaction with a credit card, then they can do a chargeback. Paypal will remove the charged back funds from to your account.
In either case, if you already removed the funds, your account will go negative.
He still has an account here. IIRC, he got a bit pissed at me when I would not integrate Heatware API on our site for them to use. Has not logged on for a couple years.Heat23 (owner/operator of Heatware used to be a member here, IIRC. But it looks like that account doesn't exist anymore. I was part of the testing of the site redesign and can say that he was pretty responsive, at least at that time.
Really glad this all worked out for you, OP. That guy in Cali can eat a dick. Sucks that beheo tried to involve you with his reselling problem, but glad he came around in the end.
I don't know whats more infuriating, the obviously fake video or the fact that he uses a red plastic knife to cut the tape...Do you still need help with this?

In an age where most every website is ate up with dozens of analytics sites and every social media widget known to man, it's good that [H] is still mostly cancer free.He still has an account here.
