    Default purplehaze50o is a Scammer.... Stay away!

    This is guy running scams in the marketplace. Stay away from. I purchased a Nexus 5 from him but instead got a Droid Maxx Otterbox. Luckily, I'm smarter than him. Unfortunately, looks like he has 2 scam listings up. People like this should die slowly.

    Yup, Dom and I talked about this guy. Something just didn't add up. Glad you got it worked out. Thanks for posting this so at least he can be banned and others won't fall for his crap.

    Thank you for posting this. It's extremely helpful. I personally don't want this marketplace going south and being locked up. Like the xda marketplace.

    If he is being banned, why are his ads still up? He contradicts himself in the different ads. One he claims to work for Verizon. The next he claims he is trying to leave Verizon but the rep told him blah blah blah...

    I just said hopefully he could be banned. Without any sort of notice from the OP, no one would know. I guess the mods are still looking into it. I dunno. He's a liar and a scam artist. Karma is a b****...

    I reported this thread to the AC mods that's all we can do. Keep in mind we don't really police the market place. It's buyer buyer beware. And we have to protect ourselves and each other. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is and if someone is asking you to do something you feel uncomfortable doing like shipping first, or paying as a gift without them having an established background, then don't do it!

    I am somewhat new to the marketplace and have done some deals on here and another forum. It's sad that people try to screw you over. Especially over a phone I don't understand what people get out of being dishonest. Karma will rear her ugly head that's for sure.

    You stated you got your money back? Did you get it back from your credit card company or from the guy selling the product? Did he give you a reason as to why the wrong product was sent and/or reply or stay in contact with you in any way?
    (just trying to understand the backstory as you didn't post very many details, other than you got the wrong product but got your money back)
    Thanks

    Got the money back from my bank. As far as the seller he seemed cool up until the a day before the package was to arrive then he fell off the face of the earth. And of course there hasn't been any type of response since I got the package.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that Google conducted their investigation and refunded my purchase. So I'm going to let my bank know so they can take the money out of my account. But in case anyone else runs into this issue, you can get it resolved.
