This (wo)man might be a passive scammer (as one could base on their earlier 'trade issues').
Generally, passive scammers instead of actively scamming people, just start sob stories to try and get their money back without returning the 'faulty' product.
If (s)he is, this particular case would be a change of profile.. reversed the roles, but gain the profit.

If (s)he has been scammed before (the other option one can consider based on their earlier reports), it is possible (s)he changed their mind to "everybody does it, so why not me"?

Or beli could be scamming us instead. :P




Never forget. Everybody lies. Once it appears to you like there isn't a lie at work, someone has been fooled.




Regardless. Don't call. Don't have someone else call. For FF/Koji reasons.

Hahaha, no no no ... though .. I'll have the beer :P

I meant the program where an english cop trades places with a california cop.
The english guys learn the 'zero tolerance' approach from the us folks.
And vice versa, they us folks learn the english approach of being rough without a firearm.


Also, beli, that guy on the website has a good trade score and well over 2000 posts there ...
I cant realy imagine a scammer obtaining that. If it is a scammer, the site should have previous complaints about the trader in question.

Scammer needs to start somewhere. Remember SGC_Replicators. Everyone thought he was clean, boom! proven wrong.
Or myself, for example. Used to be a fairly well-loved forum member. Nothing but good grades and all. Lots of posts. Boom! Blown up.

(What I'm saying is, good histories count for nothing.)
