Default Duped by seller

Well after 15 years of buying 1000's of items from special interests websites, I was stupid and sent a PayPal friends and family payment to a seller on this site. I have done this before and never a problem. I have sent hundreds of dollars to people I didn't know and never a problem. After a 5 year layoff in RC due to a fire destroying all my rc stuff, I recently decided to get back into it and the first thing I wanted to replace was my radio. Hungryman had a dx8 advertised and went for it when he accepted my offer. I see he has been banned from the site (after payment was made) and now out $130. Should have been more careful but I let my good faith in people cloud my judgement. I will have to wait awhile till I can afford another radio to enjoy flying again. It's a shame that there are people that do this kind of thing. Anyway, just wanted you all to know to avoid this seller.

That guy has been floating around, creating fake accounts and scamming our users and friends.

If a deal looks too good to be true it probably is, keep that in mind as well as friends/family is for friends and family, if someone you don't know or trust wants that, walk away.

If you see something weird, you can also always report the user so a moderator can take a look at what they're up to.

For what its worth, PayPal will usually help you out on a F/F transfer 1 time so it would be worth your time to get in touch and see what they can do for you.
