i think from here on out i'm going to start including a couple extra bucks with every paypal transaction I do to pay for the fees. I'd rather pay a little bit extra to prevent getting burned for a lot.

To Lody: jaybeane pretty much said it all....i sent it as a gift because I've sent it as a gift to so many Tankers I've done business here with that I just started sending funds as a gift automatically. When I look back at it, the dude included the Paypal fees in the $140 that I sent him as a gift when I should've sent it as "Goods" or "Payment Owed." I put too much trust in a dude I've never done business with even though dude got 2 positive feedback in previous deals. I'll know now to ask a seller if he wants it sent as a gift; if anything I'll just pay a couple extra bucks to cover the fees so that I don't get screwed again.
To jaybeane: you hit the nail right on the head....damn I screwed myself over....

If the tanker has a VERY good feedback, it's probably safe to send as a gift. Otherwise I would beware sending a gift payment.

I agree CG76, I got burned for $500 last year around this time with a dude trying to sell some MOC vintage stuff on the tank. I paid the dude as a gift and never saw my goods or money again. It was a lesson learned the hard the way...I filed an internet crime complaint but never got contacted requesting any further info. Be very careful when doing business as a gift transaction for sure.
Last year I got burned by the following people:
Spirit-Iron_Lun - sent him over $200.00 in stuff on trade and never received my end. Sadly, we had done about 3 or 4 deals before he decided to screw me over.
baroness2009 - sent him $500.00 on paypal (used the gift option) and never received my ARAH MOC vintage items.

Agreed to sell me two items and asked for $10. He acknowledged that he recieved payment and claimed that shipping (from Canada to Missouri) could take 3-6 weeks. I never recieved the items (sent payment on 09/13/10).
This guy is a classic thief. Has not respond to MANY emails/pm's in over a month. Buyers and Traders BEWARE!

Reasons though...he has excellent feedback here on Tank. When it comes to trading and buying/selling on toy sites, I guess I'm a bit more trusting of people, believing there is more of a bond between members than there are with people on eBay.
I've come to the realization that my toys are gone, and I won't get my money. It's the first time I've been burned on any site.
Yup, it's me.

Found Wheeljaxx on Ebay! He's "Wheeljaxxprime" I wrote him and told him whats up about scamming and he's claims he knows nothing about our transaction or Hisstank! What a joke! The guys a total fruad and scammer! Well on here at least. His ebay has good feedback but now that i put that at risk he's responding. He would be better just to send me my stuff. This is just the first step i have in store for him. Oh and now i cant send him any PM's anymore on here. Can anyone else?

I sent out 140 buck to this guy DAHUNTER aka Manny and he stopped responding to all my Pm's right after he received my money. Little does he no i started an Fraud claim against him. Be careful Fellow tankers. He may have done one or two good deals but has no intentions of following through anymore.

we made a deal NOV 27th. we were supposed to ship together and he forgot, then forgot again, then said he slipped $10 in the package and shipped. and now is just ignoring my PMs. even using his last alleged shipment date the item is late.
TAKE CARE WHEN DEALING WITH B AND H COMICS.
Update Jan 15th
the items arrived today with the $10. interestingly the items were postmarked Jan 13th.
and to top it off the night creeper he sent me was completely missing his silver face application, ya know, the visor. its just black. : (
