Scammer Alert Dr. Edf


First off let me say that I do not like bashing anyone character on this forum
I buy several items here consistently over the years time. Therefore I feel that
those of us in this hobby thing of ours can as well as should be trusted.

Secondly, I extended this trust to Dr. Edf whom i bought several items from
some was listed on this forum and others was not such as his 90mm Euro-fighter as well as the Sr71 ,& F-14 these two items I sent money using Greendot money paks because paypal shut down my account claiming I was a risk for making to many purchases (see my thread paypal does it again).

Thirdly, I did recieve all items except the Sr71 & F-14 and the two 90mm
combo set ups its been nearly a month since I made these purchases
and to no avail has he contacted me on the whereabouts of my product. Also I didn't mention
I provided Dr.Edf with return shippg labels to send items back to me. both labels show items has not been shipped. Dr. Edf excuse was his grandmother suddenly passed away. But he has no concern for my $500 I sent him.

Lastly, Beware of this guy he started out doing the right thing but finished
as a scammer I have all tracking numbers as well as Greendot moneypaks i sent to him. I only use greendots because I know longer have paypal. And as much as I like buying here on this forum this has left a sour taste in my mouth about buying here ever again.

In conclsion, Dr. Edf did contact me accusing me of trying to pull a fast one on him when he forgets i sent him shipping labels as my proof items wasn;t shipped. do not trust this guy he is a scammer.

This is just a weird thread to begin with. I'll begin by saying paypal work's like the well oiled machine it was designed to be if you follow their rule's.

I think most of your problem stem's from the use of green dots as payment and now the seller may see a way to use that to his advantage.

The seller is a new member with 0 trader rating which tends to make me want to watch him a little closer than other's.

From his profile you can see that he spends most of his time on your paypal post. That's kinda creepy.

I'd like to hear him chime in on this to see what he has to say.

Court will now adjourn for recess

So,, you sent him the green dots directly,, or this was part of when your acct. was frozen? or a combo of both? I'm a little confused.

Yes I bought Greendots then pm'd Dr. Edf the activation numbers to load on his prepaid card. Only because my paypal acct was frozen although we both talked on the phone several times I didn't see this coming at all.

That's weird.... Why would he send you some of the items.... Most scams I've seen they won't send anything.. 1) they have to take a loss 2) you now have they're adress... I'd use the adress to contact the proper authorities.

For future purchase's I would recommend starting a new PayPal account and link a bank account to it that always has plenty of money in it. I've never had a problem with PayPal and I've ran close to $8000.00 thru my PayPal in the last 90 day's or so it say's on my account summary.

I ran over $4000 in two weeks in my paypal acct, therefore using paypal will not help me due to my RC Disease

That puzzles me as well that he gave me his home address, or maybe its an address to an abandon house.

Either way, if you never see anything else, I'd contact his local authorities with it.
