Exclamation Bradley0 potential scam on Etek 5

To me, this seller felt like he was trying to pull a fast one. I made a deal to buy this Etek 5 and asked for his name, address, and phone, plus a pic of the case & accessories. He did not provide that but rather asked me to: "Please send to cash app: [Name]"; and then when I said I'll only use PayPal he said "It needs to be sent as friends/family....I don't want you to do a chargeback."

I have the saved PM's if a mod needs it.

***ADVISE TO POTENTIAL BUYERS***
DO NOT SEND MONEY FRIENDS/FAMILY-- EVER -- when buying items (unless it's actually a gift to someone you know). You do not have protection from PayPal!!!

This user, Bradley0, left me False Negative Feedback after I posted that it felt suspicious. Mods, I have reported the False Feedback. A transaction was never completed.

I made an offer and he accepted but I did not send him a payment. Again, he did not send me his contact information and the way he was asking for money was a huge red flag.

The PM chain where he wanted me to pay with non-protected methods.

Here is from his sales thread where people spotted the same marker pic on eBay from another person.
