I've posted this in the official Electrum thread, but I haven't gotten a response there. I'm posting it here in hopes that I can help the guy I did this sale with.

I purchased a gift card from kevwang95 for BTC1.5 to this payment address: http://blockchain.info/address/1LHmGT39uLJYSfeKVbgUP5vAgrhf1GaqMK

I sent the payment at 9:09PM EST. My wallet shows the transaction as completely confirmed. The blockchain currently has 15 confirmations for the payment. However, kevwang95 says that Electrum is not showing that the transaction has been received: his history has no transactions and his wallet balance is 0.

He sent me this screenshot of Electrum at about 11:30PM showing that the payment still hadn't shown up after nearly 2 1/2 hours. It looks to me like he sent me the right address, and it's the same address I linked above and sent payment to.

I'm thinking there is some sort of glitch in Electrum that's not showing his correct balance, but I don't have much experience with Electrum. He's new to BitCoin and I want to make sure he gets the payment for the sale. I would really appreciate it if someone could give him a hand in solving the issue by either posting here or PMing him directly. The payment is there in the address; he just can't access it.

Thanks to any help we can get with this!

EDIT: The issue has been solved. Thanks for the help!

He said he just switched from SSL to HTTP and hasn't seen a change yet.

If you've tried another version, multiple servers, you don't have connectivity problems and still can't see your balance

electrum addresses -ak

And import your private key in blockchain.info for example.

In any case, is he who has to find the solution and of course fulfill with you, otherwise it is a scammer.

Business with newbies is an unnecessary risk.

. . . I purchased a gift card from kevwang95 for BTC1.5 to this payment address: http://blockchain.info/address/1LHmGT39uLJYSfeKVbgUP5vAgrhf1GaqMK . . .
It looks like someone has already received that payment and transferred it to 14cfxNfCY2en26sexGxeaJCPwBd2bDkjYs

I confirm that there was a bug with my electrum server, that caused this transaction to be hidden for some time.
so, this user is definitely not a scammer, he was probably using my faulty server.

it is very likely a cache bug, because it disappeared when I restarted the server yesterday.
I am investigating this bug right now.

Not a scam!

Bolded that so people won't have negative thoughts about the seller. He messaged me this morning and said the funds were received. I didn't think he was a scammer since he sent me the gift card I was purchasing before I sent the payment. I felt bad since I wanted his first transaction to go well.

Anyways, the problem has been solved. Thanks to everyone who helped us out! Smiley
