[font=Arial, sans-serif]about a year and a half ago I got scammed on ISS for a deal that would get me the "then new" white 32gb Iphone3GS (yes there were tagged pics). the guy had pretty decent feedback, an 89 as I remember, to my none. so of course I end up shipping first and what do I get in return? an Iphone box filled with PENNIES. 
 I immediately try to contact dude but to no avail, he's deleted his account by now and has been ignoring phone calls etc. here's what he gained from me that day. -1000XP on my behalf.

the worst part is I had never even gotten the chance to un-DS those Carmines. 


post your L's taken, scams you were involved in, or FAILS in general.

yeah, I snapped that pic before shipping.
afterwards I'd found out that the address he gave me was his P.O. box, so there was no making a sketchy trip to his location to get my stuff back, lesson definitely learned.

Kid got me for two pairs of kicks in a trade, met up with his mom the first time and I ended up setting up a meeting with him again and got my shoes back and sold em for $170

I've never heard of the "Paypal charge back scam" up until I read a few of those instances here on NT. Paypal is ******ed as hell... probably going with the "customer is always right" policy. I read a few sellers even had the tracking receipt along with proof that the shoes were delivered and Paypal STILL refunded money to the buyers after they claimed chargeback.

I have like 10 pairs of kicks or so I want to sell on here but I'm hesitant because of this scam... what would y'all recommend?

Scammers are such scumbags.
