DownloadDir is a (pretty dumb) scammer.

Sold BTC for paypal to myself and at least 2 others in this thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=156924.0

BTC never arrived at 1st he claimed it was because he/she/it sent them from Silkroad (and provided these screenshots http://gyazo.com/c158d3965b94b26e6adbf3a3f6f1fe51 & http://gyazo.com/d8928a8b54873a42aa020f83c853817c ) and it takes longer. He then vanished from communication. Its now over twelve hours since he claims to have sent.

Paypal won't help you.  They might actually freeze your account since Bitcoin is against their TOS.

I wrote that I bought a software from him, he said it was bitcions. I'm a verified account, he's not, I hope PP will believe me, what the chances of that happening?

It happened before with verified vs. unverified accounts.

FYI this screenshot is 100% fake. http://gyazo.com/d8928a8b54873a42aa020f83c853817c . Notice how the balance on the withdrawal line says 7.23 btc, but the account balance at the top says 0.03? He probably couldn't figure out the font used to overwrite that in phoitoshop.

Sorry to see you guys get burned, but do some due diligence next time, or ask around in #bitcoin-otc, and we will put you on the right path.

I've actually won paypal disputes where the buyer claimed unauthorized payment. Just had to call paypal and provide communication logs.
