DID I GET SCAMMED? NEED fast help!!!

Ok so exactly a month ago I bought a shocker with freak kit from pure h8
He is located in canada and I live in the US. I payed him $290 shipped. Then he requested for another $9 for paypal fees, so I paid him. It's been almost 30 days since he shipped it and I still have not got it. Everytime i try to talk to him he says expect it anyday now. Does shipping really take that long from canada??

please help what should i do?? keep waiting or what? any1 ever dealt with

pure h8?

It might be stuck in customs, or he shipped it to the wrong place.

Is he still replying to your messages? If so it's highly unlikely that he is scamming you. Ask him for the tracking number, if he doesn't have one, wait a little while longer. If it hasn't arrived in a maximum of two weeks, I would suggest calling customs and filing a "Lost" report with them.

I would file a Paypal claim on both payments you made to him. Sounds like he is trying to stall and blame it on customs.

You have most likely been scammed by him.
There's no way it takes 30 days.
File a paypal dispute asap.

Well if he is still in contact then he probably isn't scamming. Why would he keep talking to someone he wants to stay away from.

To let the time pass until its to late to file a Paypal claim. It does not take 30 days to recieve a package. He has not provided a tracking number to prove any type of shipment has occcured.

You can always drop the claim if you recieve the item. But if you wait to long to open it then your only other choice will be with law enforcement depts. in two different countries. I would file a claim with Paypal ASAP(today) and take my chances there. I found out when I used to do a lot of buying on the Nation that if a seller could not provide me with a tracking number or picture of a USPS reciept showing my zip code that they probally had not shipped the item. When the items would arrive the postmark date would always tell the correct tale. Also the fact that he is talking to you has nothing to do with the fact that he is being truthful with you.

Where is that tracking number or proof of any type of shipment? How was it shipped? Was it insured? What was the date it was shipped? "for one the gun is sent awile ago " does not mean a thing without some details. He could also work on his spelling and well as his selling.

when I asked him for a tracking number, he said the cashier did not give it to him and only gave him the receipt. I told him to scan/email me the receipt, what he did was he took a picture of it with his webcam, but everything was way too blurry and could not see anything other than a white piece of paper.

Tell him to go to the post office and have him give them the receipt. They can find it for him
