Nah, send him a box with water bottles. Make sure to provide a tracking number so he can be amped about getting something. Then provide that tracking # to Paypal and see who can win the dispute. I think its worth the shipping fee to mess with someone who thinks it's okay to scam people.

what are you shipping to his grandson?

You could just keep whatever that is and say you never got it right/?

EDIT

nm I re read the OP.  Dont bother with it.  Cuz if you get screwed what are you gonna say "I got scammed trying to scam this guy"  ?

it looks like he's going to say that he never got the item and paypal is going to take the money out of your account for the refund. don't go through with this.

 The money you potentially save on fees isn't worth the risk.

What he is going to do:

He is going to send you a FAKE paypal email that says he sent the money....You'll think "oh cool he really did it". Then you will go to paypal.com and check your balance and it won't be there. So you'll ask "why hasn't the payment went through"? and he will say "it will go through as soon as you provide tracking/it ships". Trust me, all those clowns on ebay have tried that bs with me numerous times. Scammers send fake paypal invoices all the time. It should always say something like "You've got money!" or "_____has sent you money"

Even if he sends it as a gift he can file a charge back or an unauthorized payment so he'll most likely get his money back

Yup.

No threadjack, but something similar happened to me. Dude sent me a $2,500 check to act as a driver for some "woman."

I received the check and it's clearly bogus. I just emailed him telling him to send me cash instead.

Seriously?


I always try and think of ways I can scam the scammer every time I get some kind of scam request. Like how can I trick this dude and get him to give me money while I promise him something?

I never do it though cause I'm too lazy and I feel like it would be a waste of time.
