    Username(s) of the accused:
    drog23
    When did the issue occur?:
    1/09
    Link to transaction thread:
    https://ectunnel.com/community/threads/wts-krono-9-50-min-5-in-stock-all-servers.64654/#post-367872
    Value of property in dispute:
    $95

    User drog23 bought 10kr from me on Dec 9th 2018. This user did a charge back on their credit card as a "Unauthorized transaction" . I was notified today that paypal has opened a dispute because of the charge back.

    I contacted other sellers whom the user bought from around the same time. At least one has contacted me alerting me they did a charge back with them as well. I will let them reply to this thread as well.

    If you all could also contact Paypal and explain the situation then that will be more ammunition against him

    Just called paypal and was told the charge back was from his bank/or CC and would
    normally take 60-90 days to resolve. Thanks to this scammer, my paypal account now
    has a negative balance and was told I can't use paypal anymore until I add funds to get it to zero balance (lol).
    I have been a verified paypal member since 2000 and now I find the company pretty pathetic...
    Their international wire transfer service, Xoom, is even worse...

    He charged back $180 on me for 20 krono as well. The krono was delivered to a character named Performer on Coirnav.

    Correction, character was on Coirnav not Agnarr.

    So this guy made at least 6 charge backs recently stating unauthorized charges all from PayPal each with different dates and he thinks his cc won’t question him?

    It's a bold strategy, Cotton, let's see if it pays off for him.

    (Dodgeball quote! I'm pissed at this dude FWIW...)

    This topic of charging back a paypal friends and family payment made through a credit card was discussed not too long ago.
    It could be a long wait, but at least now we will see how this issue will be resolved.

    I live near the scammer, and have all of his information. I went ahead and contacted a police officer earlier about proceeding with filing criminal charges against him. I will know more tomorrow. I will ask him if we are able to combine all of the incidents for a more severe charge.

    The lesson here is to transfer your PayPal balance back to your bank often to avoid situations like this. If the chargeback was in the thousands, then this would become a real pain in the ass to have the money tied up unless you have no PayPal balance.

    actually the lesson here is don't scam people smarter than you. I filed a police report today, I need everyone that was scammed by this nerd to send me a copy of their paypal transaction. Also, pm me for a link to the case number to attach in your paypal dispute.

    @klesko , @NWTrader630 , @egal33 , @ahhz316 .
    Please PM me with an Email address to supply some documents to you to retrieve your money.
    I've been working with Paypal the last 2 days and resolved my case with it being in my favor and let them know that there's other people he scammed. In fact his accounts being sent to the fraud prevention team due to the proof I provided them - that Im also going to provide to you.

    Anyone getting a similar message from Paypal? Total BS.

    "Thank you for contacting PayPal.

    We have received your documentation and will keep it on file.

    Please note that we have disputed the chargeback with the buyer's credit card issuer. Depending on the credit card issuer involved, the chargeback dispute process may take up to 75 calendar days. The chargeback case will reflect as closed within the Resolution Center of your PayPal account while we await the credit card issuer's response. Once the card issuer has responded to PayPal with their decision, we will send an email to your primary email address with the final outcome of the case. Keep in mind that the outcome of a disputed chargeback is ultimately made by the credit card issuer and PayPal cannot appeal or control the decision. If the chargeback is decided in your favor, the funds will be credited back to your PayPal account balance.

    Thank you for choosing PayPal.

    Sincerely,
    Sabrina
    PayPal Chargeback Division
    PayPal"

    Seems like theyre only doing support for the ones that werent sent as friends and family and was sent as a service or item. =/
    But we will be persuing him on the CC end so that it all resolves. We have ample proof he made the purchases.

    The actual amounts were $54 (on 12/10/18) and $120 (on 11/26/18) (just confirmed with Paypal that both were by F & F) but the chargeback amounts show $55.87 and $123.78 (which includes a small fee).

    Besides the chargebacks, the scammer's CC also slapped on an additional $40 chargeback fee ($20 for each chargeback).

    Paypal can do nothing now. Just have to wait it out.

    Thanks for everyone's help with this.

    Confirmed that the bastard is one of the two listed owners of the below property.

    134 N Fairbanks Ave
    Sanger, CA 93657

    Purchased in June 2017 for $248K. While it’s not a mansion, he is still a property owner at 29 years old. Not sure why he is scamming people.

    Good to hear. The negative balance is preventing me from using PayPal from purchasing anything else, unless I pay the negative balance first.

    I refuse to do that out of principal. . Thanks to the staff here for all your assistance.

    "I talked to David he will be returning all the money."

    Thank you xoxo for going out of your way to help everyone with this. Did he give an excuse as to why he did all
    the chargebacks? and did he apologize?

    Any chance David said when he would actually repay?

    He probably also owes us all $20 charge back fees levied by PayPal, too.

    For each transaction...

    After waiting for 75 days, Paypal finally refunded most of us (if not all). I assume that
    the scammer failed to provide anything to his credit card company to support his claim
    that the transactions were fraudulent.

    Omg is anyone still here? This guy just got me on a completely different game (Game of Thrones Conquest.) Sold him my keep (worth 450 USD) for only 300 AND allowed him to only pay 200 upfront. Sure enough I get a charge back email stating that he has stated that this is unauthorized. He says his bank did it automatically and that he will be canceling right away. Shortly a charge back for the second payment comes through. He States he will handle it. All of this is documented on discord. I am thoroughly disgusted and of anyone has updated information on him, I'm definitely interested in pursuing legal action. @xoxo
