What happened: I purchased an amazon $100 in giftcard for $55 I wanted to do a complete order of $500 total he said he had to get off after that and we can resume the next day. He said he could do a $300 giftcard before he went to bed for $165 (The amount I was scammed for) and so I sent him the funds and he took off. The giftcards he sent me were recalled almost instantly before I could put a purchase in. http://prntscr.com/a1blbx

$500 $165 with a newbie and you're not using escrow? are escrows useless for giftcards deals or what? serious question.

sorry for your loss btw.

Yep totally my fault, pure example of why escrow is required for deals on here. Most of the giftcard sellers ive done business with before don't like using escrow not sure why that is but they usually came through for me. This guy saw the money and it was worth more to him than future business because he is fully capable of getting these giftcards.

Isn't an Amazon gift card sold at 50% face value almost inevitably some sort of a scam? Carded/hacked or just plain "take BTC and run"...

Yeah well he can get the giftcards but they get placed on hold for fraud. I called in to amazon to see why they were placed on hold, gave them all the guys info I had they are going to contact me if they end up taking action on him.
