I am writing this with the means of showing it to the local authorities in attempt to retrieve my personal belongings that were stolen via mail fraud by the person with the name Addison Haney. I have documented all communication with this person and I have proof that he has scammed me as well as another member on this online board. The item stolen is pictured below.
On April 22, 2012, Addison Haney contacted my via private message regarding a paintball marker for sale thread that I had listed on www.pbnation.com
. We agreed that I would trade my marker for his, and I would add $50.00 in cash via PayPal. Here are screen shots of the communication between him and myself.
As you can see by the images, I shipped the marker out with a tracking number. I have proof of delivery in the following screenshot.
After I mailed the package and received the delivery confirmation, I sent $50.00 via PayPal to the email address provided. The money was returned because the PayPal address was rejected/unregistered. His claim was that he did not receive the goods or the payment. The email address given was firstname.lastname@example.org
As you can see in the following image, the PayPal transaction was not followed through with. At this point, I simply said "send me my marker back", to which he did not do.
At this point, I had pretty much written this down as a loss. Yesterday afternoon, June 14, 2012, I received word from someone that the stolen marker was being offered in a trade to another PBNation member.
I have been in contact with the fellow user, who has also had a marker stolen, and I have received proof of transaction via a text message which is listed below.
Name of scammer:
Address of scammer:
225 reedwood drive
joliet, illinois 60436
And again in his message,
Please let me know what needs to be done to retrieve my stolen objects.
