    I agreed to buy a gtx 295 from this person. He agreed to ship first as long as I paid him $20 for shipping.


    he was stalling me a few days that he would get it out and it will be shipped. then in my paypal once I opened dispute I got this message:
    "

    The person who dealt with me before sending this payment wanted to buy an internet service. Not an physical item to be shipped. if you did not chat with me concerning this then this is probably a guy who defrauded both of us... I'll just refund this payment. Please let me know. when I opened dispute in my pp.



    He is nothing but a scammer. Probably scammed more people in sending him $20 dollars to pay for his hosting service. I encourage anyone who did business with him to open dispute.

    heres the PP he wanted payment sent to : goldsteinmail@gmail.com which is veridianhosting.

    Sounds like a troll, just by his name since it looks like he just typed a bunch of random crap.
    At least its only 20 bucks, but thanks for letting us know about him.

    Btw: he logged in today

    Yep, googling his name raised red flags already.

    Did he respond to your WTB via PM or something?

    He's only got 7 posts, so it's not as if he's got access anymore to post an FS/T thread.

    yes he responded via PM. Even offered to ship first without asking as long as the $20 shipping was paid.

    I think it's clear at this point what's going on but when I was looking to buy a GTX280, xila5hxlfx118o6x responded in the exact same way.

    I was contacted by PM and he wanted to sell me one for $160 as long as I could provide $20 up front. I was hesitant and asking a lot of questions, eventually he stopped responding.

    He said the money was for his car and he had no extra money to pay for shipping up front. He also could not provide any pictures or proof he had the card.
