Txhailstorm Might Be Scamming Me. Please Help.

Edit:

I am now claiming that TXHAILSTORM IS indeed a scammer. I gave him another day to send the money and he has not. According to his pm back to me(refer to bottom of thread) I am supposed to have the money in my account and i do not. I am now filing a paypal claim and going to the local police department in Ben Bolt, Texas.

I am an understanding guy though, if he decides to send me the money he owes me, i will change the bad feedback and put all this behind.




I repeat that i am not accusing txhailstorm, I am only posting because he MIGHT be, not saying he is

So let's start from the beginning. I bought a Magna from TXHAISLTORM and he claimed that it was supposed to come with RF kit. I waited a few days for him to ship out, and when It finally arrived there was only a Magna hopper without the rf kit. I pmed him to ask how he wanted to resolve this and he stated that he meant that the rf chip in the magna was included. So i kindly asked for a refund and offered to pay for shipping back to him. He said once he received the Magna he would refund me through Paypal because I paid him through paypal. For some odd reason, First Class USPS took about 5 days to get there, but when he received it I did not receive my refund and he is no longer reading my PM's. He was on today at 9:30 something AM and did not read the 3 pm's that i sent him. I was wondering what I should do to resolve this. I am already going to file a Paypal claim. Here is proof with our PM's.

I shipped USPS Priority and here is the tracking number confirming he recieved it.
0308 0070 0000 5120 9870





Just in case its hard to read...

I paid the 3% and shipping.so i spent 10 out of my own pocket.

Can i please get a refund? ill even pay for shipping it back to you. I jus thought the rf in the gun was with it. send money to ______@gmail.com please, thanks

sure send the the hopper 1st and ill refund your money.
sorry about the mix up

Originally Posted by kjacinto
its alright, let me jus get ur shipping address again

Edit:

He just replied to one of my many PM's so hopefully this time he actually follow through.

I'm sorry someone took advantage of you. Have you filed a police report or contacted the authorities at all?

You should definitely start by reading the threads stickied in the Theft Forum. There's some good advice in there and different advice on what to do now.

If you want us to help you here, you need to give us as much proof as possible. That includes pictures or scans of tracking numbers, screenshots of paypal payments, a picture of the money order, screenshots of the PMs between you and the scammer or anything else you have that collaborates your story.

If you don't know what a screenshot is, just click the link and it will tell you how to include them.

After a little research, no they don't have a paint equivalent, you gotta download an app.
