Another example of more money than sense.
I'd love to see the Paypal dispute should this guy be dissatisfied.

I'd have humored him for a while, claimed the item was dispatched when in reality, it's a box of fresh, steaming dog poop and a note with a screenshot of his failed attempt and a message reading: "Have fun!"
Seriously. I'd have so done that - the postage would've been worth it.
I don't trust Paypal for a second though. I'd sooner deal with scammers myself then think about reporting them, especially if they're local. Also, should i be scammed by a buyer, i'd close my ebay and paypal account so fast they wouldn't see it coming - anything that means they don't get their money back. (I withdraw money as soon as i get paid).
If paypal has a problem with that, they can kiss my backside. I've been scammed too many times by buyers and sellers to tolerate it anymore (in more elaborate ways than what you share, thats for sure)Edited by Thingamajig - 8/14/12 at 11:49am
