    I have been scammed big time from this site by a new user

    Good morning guys, well... I was taken advantage of by what I thought was an actual technician from this site. I received this message from this guy, thinking it was safe to send him money and I was wrong!! Here is the message he sent me.
    Hello mate, John as Zebra ZT610 label printer, available for sale, pm the g mail below to contact him.
    Helppeoplefriends@gmail.com
    Cheers.

    I sent him $350.00 for a printhead through PayPal and after I sent the money, the next morning he sent a message saying he was off on the shipping and fees, and he wanted another $100.00 to cover his costs... I said no way and it went down hill from there. I am so pissed off, I am usually the guy who is skeptical of things like this, but he got me. He used the name Joshua Guillory... He then sent another request for me to send money to this email address Bharding4242@yahoo.com. Using the name Brad Harding. He sent me a private message on here. This is his user name.. lajigvdjj

    His email address he used was helppeoplefriends@gmail.com

    Maybe you guys can blow up his emails telling him to refund my money.

      That is exactly what I did, I used friends and family, so he didn't get charged any fees, he is a piece of sh-+

        Sorry to hear that you have been scammed.
        Personally I wouldn't hesitate to stop any conversation with people with such an emails. It shouts scam. Loudly. When you think about it.
        A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.
        Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

            This site is completely out of control. Admin should be embarrassed.

              Still common sense isn't canceled.
