Title: Scamed 140 by Yelpdood on forum
Post by: sale666 on December 19, 2017, 11:01:46 AM
Just to let you know do not trade with this user.. i paid him with paypal he already made a deal with another user and gave me his PAYPAL account!
username on forum is Yelpdood...
We agreed on 140 BTC he sent me the paypal address of another guy i sent the payment and the guy sent him doge coin... be aware to check if email, paypal adress is the same as the users...

Im not mad at all 140 is nothing to me and its ok.. i hope he needs the money but theres karma what goes around comes around so i wish the scammer all the best..
Cheers

Always check and double check by sending an email to the address linked to the PayPal address the scammer claims to be his.

This is a classic MITM scam. This scammer convinces someone else to pay for the coins under false pretences. It was a heavily used scam tactic back in the early days of bitcoin but I see it still works. Some people still haven't learned how to avoid this trap.

When escrow is refused, being suspicious is a natural and healthy reaction. As soon as escrow is declined, treat everything and every word with suspicion. Verify, verify and verify again.

You should have emailed the PayPal email given to you and asked in that email if the payment was meant for this user name and which address the coins were being sent to. This would have killed the scam.
