Scam Seller Alert


Hello,
WARNING! A seller using the addresses “[email protected]” and “[email protected]” got wind of my efforts to buy an Artizan plane on rcgroups, offered me one with pictures, and then never sent it and cut contact.
BEWARE!

I just sold a $500 radio on another forum. I listed the price + shipping and said I only take Paypal, they paid F&F. Some people never learn

Might have been unintentional.

I and others have pointed out that F&F sometimes comes up as the default and you have to specifically choose the “buyer protection” option. I’ve noticed this twice.

But you never know.

No it wasn't, I sent them a message, "Just wanted to save you from getting dinged on the Paypal" was the response. They got lucky really another seller might not be as trustworthy. The forum has the same stickey warnings about paypal. You can only be a nice guy to a point and then you're just being clueless .
