Paintball Community and Theft

This is probably in the wrong section but I don't know where to put this...

It's sad that we the paintball community are willing to scam one another, not only are we a small group of people that are trying to make a name for this sport (let alone the "bad" press we get), we will go out and scam people here on Pbnation (which is a great website for us to all come together and communicate, not saying PBnation is the issue, people that use it are) I have a friend today who is quitting our local team and paintball in general because he got scammed on gear and/or money when trying to buy/sell gear. He doesn't have money to buy new gear and is so frustrated and pissed at the fact that the paintball world would do this to one of their own.

Why do this to our own people?

Just a sad story..

It's not paintball, it's people. Solve that problem and paintball will be dandy.

...and yes, this is the wrong place.

while it may be sad.....there are just some people out there that have no concern for others...hell just tonight a kid came to me with a trade so highly in my favor i had to tell him i couldn't just rip him off like that...its not paintball or pbnation its just people in general thats like asking why do people steal murder lie cheat ect.... its just human error ...some do it some dont thats just the way the world works and it all depends on our personal morality and how we justify our actions imm kinda drunk so if i miss spelled anything sorry..but post this in the theft report or something im sure they can help him there ive seen many cases get solved after all most of us are here to help one another even though there are a few bad seeds...

no offense to your friend but that person even outside of the paintball world would screw people its not the sport hell there are plenty of scams out there whether it be identity theft or robbery it happens in that more then paintball scams....your friend should know better then that....maybe let him barrow gear till he can afford to buy his own..or even help raise money for him to afford new gear like talk to your local field and maybe they can host an event or something

Even drunk you had some good advice, I forgot that PB nation had a dedicated "Theft" thread, he said he is giving all the info he has to local PD tomorrow that have to forward it to the scammer's local PD and go from there, idk if it's promising or not.

thanks to both of you

Sorry to hear that for your buddy. Have you contacted Mods and Admin and exhausted every resource to get your buddy taken care of or at least expose the guy who messed him over? Mods should be able to pull up the guys location. I would contact local police and see if the Cyber Crimes unit can help you.

Good luck and hopefully your buddy can come back to the sport.

This is a community. So why are you keeping the scammer's information secret from the people in the community who might be able to help him?

Tell your friend to make a thread with all the screenshots etc...

Once we have the details, the people who frequent this forum can offer some pretty good advice. Until we know exactly what happened, it's just guessing.

I think there are 95% good buyers/Sellers on here/in general.

Some people are thieves and have a drug habit, have to sell broke items that they know are broke but lie, and them there are those that steal just to steal.

My advice is to use Paypal and never a send a payment as a gift.
