Hi folks, i recently used localbitcoins.com at night, unfortunately i paid twice for the trade via bank transfer.

I have sent a message to LondonLink who i bought from, but he either hasn't picked up my message or is ignoring it.

Does anyone know him here, thoughts about what to do next?

interesting. i dont know the username on here but he probably has a different username. id suggest waiting a day before worrying to much. did you get the bitcoins you sent the first payment for? if it works like it should then you should get 2 sets of bitcoins

I did get £100 of bitcoins as my second payment went through immediately, but my first payment of £100 didn't go through until the next morning, after the trade was complete, leaving me £100 short.

Don't worry. If LondonLink refuses to return the extra money, certainly it is a crime, just call police. You have the bank account info of him, so easy to catch him.

Well, i thought i would update this thread with latest news....

1. localbitcoins.com have not been very helpful, they are replying to my tickets, but asking me to be patient etc. etc.

2. londonlink is ignoring my messages even when he is clearly online.
