    No problem man. I'm almost sure its the guy I'm thinking of. He commented on my post with almost the same username and then the next week starts talking to me at the field. After he talked to me I had several players come tell me hes a problem child. That he would try to snatch up stuff on the field and then people would find their missing pistol on airsoft squared the next day

    Ahhh... That's nasty. Well, I'm glad I can press charges for fraud if I don't get my money back, but thankfully I did it through Paypal, it shouldn't be an issue.

    Sorry to hear that. PayPal is pretty strict about the no refunds when payment is gifted because a lot of people try to use that to avoid paying paypal fees, and paypal doesn't like being cut out apparently.

    Maybe pm the guy that brought it to our attention that this was a scam, or pm the mods to see if they have any helpful info.

    All the more reason to push it through to people, Do not Gift on Paypal. Suck it up, pay the extra couple dollars, it's worth the insurance and peace of mind.

    I was new to the PayPal thing and unaware of how the "gift" thing worked so it was also my fault, but I'm still going to be pissed that it happened
