Scammed by Manifest113 [Resolved -no theft occurred. Shipped slow]

His original thread:
http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=3831054

I texted him and agreed to pay his asking price of $40 for his N64 bundle. Everything seemed to be going fine. I did not gift payment. The tracking he gave me led to a different address. It has been days and I have not heard anything about what's happening, so I filed a dispute.









I have not given him negative feedback yet because I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt...and I don't want to have to deal with retaliatory negative feedback.
Maybe hes having legitimate family issues. Until I get an update, buyer beware.

So far, it does not seem to be a scam. He responded to your text messages including one this very morning (Not sure if you guys are in the same time zone, or if you guys are in the same time zone as I am in). Feel free to bug him about shipping, like what method, tracking, and so on.

I should have wrote potential scam in the title, my mistake. It was a couple days before I got any sort of word on what the packages status was; anyone would be skeptical at that point. I filed the dispute as a precaution.

don't close the dispute until you have the package and have checked it.

the "Wrong address" thing is a tactic scammers have used before to buy more time. The seller could be legit, but once the dispute is cancelled/closed it cannot be reopened.

Delay tactics is a signature of scammers. The seller seemed to be responsive, which is a good sign. But keep the claim/dispute open until you receive the item.

As I said, it didn't seem to be a scam. But until the OP posts that everything is good, the thread stays open. Sorry Manifest.
