The guy has already given negative ratings by some DT last month yet you still buy from him ignoring those ratings? now you're crying because you have been scammed. How rude Undecided

Next time don't deal with someone who's not trusted, always use an escrow for your safety or be scammed and cried later.

This is a known scam that's been around for ages. Basically it's always someone that has a self moderated thread, sometimes locked as well to avoid any backlash on thread that would deter people from buying from them, selling from an autobuy link.

Autobuy links do not provide any sort of tangible security, it doesn't act as escrow for your transaction. There is pretty much no way of getting back your money, otherwise the scammer would not accept this as their payment method.

It's a lesson learned for you. Dealing with gift cards is already risky enough, at those kind of discounts you're unlikely to see any legitimately obtained GCs. There's a reason why DT users have already given negative trust to him ages ago.

Another manifestation that some users are not making a thorough research before dealing online. You note that you would like it to be resolved, how? If you're thinking that anyone here could help you get your money back, that will not happen. Only possible action is to tag the user (well, he currently has 3 negative ratings from DTs).

Just move on and be extra careful next time.
