Beware 'snowisfalling' is a Scammer....

Ok. I am new to HUKD and have been scammed already!! Despite buying 3 items adding up to over £1500 I have bought some real bargins.

Recently I placed a wanted ad for some PS3 games, accessories etc.. I received a PM from 'snowisfalling' offering me a selection of games. He offered me about 5 games for £45. I completed the payment via paypal immediately, and about 3 days later was given a tracking number, which did not seem to work on the royal mail website (I'm pretty sure snowisfalling has made the tracking number up!!)...Since then I have not heard or received anything . Its been almost weeks since that happend, during this time I have sent many messages to 'snowisfalling' whilst appearing online, and have had no reply.

Could someone please help me, and guide me what to do.. I ideally want my money back...

Sorry, can't help you but last thing we need on here is scammers. Mods. Please ask this guy to respond to the accusation. Buyer, do you have proof as in an e-mail that you paid for things.

If seller does not respond ban him or her, but with ever changing Ip addy's on dynamic BB links, it is going to be hard to ban for long as the person will just rejoin as another username.

Post his/her postcode so others know not to deal, but not his/her real address.

Yes, It was a Paypal gift... :(

I dont have his number, all I have is his e-maill add used for paypal.

I listed a new add under the wanted section, snowisfalling PM me about what he was selling. I did not intentionally deal through PM.

Am I banned?

Do you know his real name?

being banned is a mods choice, but the major issue here is that people dont read the for sale instruction and stick to it, the scammers hope by pming people they can get round the system, and some fall for it.

Well said, makes me wonder why the lad asked for help.....
Wish you well, and hope you get something out of it matey.
#21
it will be hard to get your money back

best thing you can do is to open dispute to paypal... even that would unlikely give your money back... but at least you can attempt to freeze his/her paypal account and help make difficult for him/her scamming other members

sorry to hear this and good luck

This is their life, they love this sort of post even if they say they don't!
#26
i agree with 90% of the posters above, no remorse ........... read the blooming rules or lose out...... simple

you read the ebay rules? scammers on ebay ? they are here too ......... looking for gullible sods ...... you have lost out thru your own fault.... tough luck etc

best thing you can do is forget about it and move on ......unless you really want the money then do some digging for information about the person

they would have done it b4 so google their usrname, or email address or even there name .......
#27
there's a few smug gits on this thread, hope some of u never get turned over!! As for the op, i hope u manage to get some recourse bud hopefully through paypal or if ure paypal account is linked to a credit card then try the cc company to see if they can't help.

All the best

i dont think folk are being smug. I think that a lot of the for sale side of things is self policing as there are many "Hawks" who spot the double dealing or potential scams.
Its important to have reminder of the pitfalls of not reading and I am sure one or two are sick of reading the "I am been ripped off" threads, but if we dont keep an eye and speak out this place would be riddled with scammers, some sympathy for the Op but its like life, you will learn from the mistakes and not let it happen again .

I don't believe that members are being smug but there have been so many I've been scammed threads of late that you'd think other members would take note.

The rules are there for everyone to read and take less time to digest then the rigmarole of now having to dispute with a potential scammer and the stress the OP is obviously facing.
