satosamoto. I paid him via Paypal, he stopped responding. We agreed to do 2 BTC at $140 each. He had me send payment to his boyfriend's address. It said the payment wasn't going to clear for 21 days or something, so he refunded it, and I tried a different funding method from paypal, since I didn't actually have cash in my Paypal account.

After I paid a second time, he said it still wasn't going to clear for 21 days, and that he could get cash in 10 using some other service. He refunded the payment.

I called a business partner of mine to see if he had any money already in his Paypal account, and would send payment if I just gave him cash. He only had enough to purchase 1 BTC, so I contacted Satosamoto again and offered to purchase just 1 bitcoin using his account. He said he would sell me the original two if I just sent payment from my account again [Edit: Forgot to add the detail that this time I was going to just send it to HIS personal address]. I sent it again, this time as a gift to see if it would hold the funds for 21 days.

Of course it went through. I sent him a PM saying payment was there, asking him to confirm. He responded a few minutes later apologizing saying he had stepped away for a few minutes. Then immediately stopped responding altogether.

I sent several more messages over the next few hours asking for a response, telling him I was on a deadline and needed to hear back. Nothing.

Sent another PM this morning, after waiting to hear back for over 12 hours, and nothing. Sent an email to all 3 emails I had for him: jdmerritt33@gmail.com, misterkidder@live.com, and osmosisnl@gmail.com, with the same message I'd sent to his PM, and a warning that I would report him on the forum, and contact paypal about the charges (I can't dispute it with Paypal directly, because it was a "gift") heard nothing. Googled two of his email addresses, osmosisnl@gmail.com, and misterkidder@live.com, and found one site with each of those emails where somebody reported him for scamming.

Couldn't find anything for jdmerritt33@gmail.com.

I'm going to reverse the payment with my credit card company. I suggest everybody here stay well clear of this guy.

I suggest you don't send Paypal as a gift.   Undecided

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Escrow. .... once again this is all something simple to solve.  PayPal is safe if you escrow.  Atleast as a buyer it is. . A legitimate buyer furthernore . Other then that i'd say no to any type of PayPal transactions
