Piers44 scemmed me, I paid for the Mavic crossmax wheels via paypal which he did not send and now is not opening private messages.

Can you PM me with details (screen cap of convo etc). Have you launched a dispute with paypal yet?

Yes i can send over the convo via PM. Yes I left it over a week so he had time to respond but then opened a dispute with paypal. over 2 weeks passed since I paid still no response via pinkbike or paypal

Can you send me some evidence and I'll look into it. Have you reported it to the police?

The StumpJumper Evo ad does look like the one posted by Vanduro in the stolen bikes forum minus the parts that are in Vanduro's photos. It's a carbon frame too and the ad has no mention of Carbon.

I dont see how you guys are connecting the imaginary dots here. Aside from it being the same model of frame, there are no similarities here that would scream stolen merch.

Two brand new accounts call out a guy who has been a member for 6 years with a long standing buy/sell history for being a scam? I call shenanigans.

Agreed...personally, I only use PayPal but people do have the right to ask for payment in any form they wish, it's up to the buyer to use their discretion. I would recommend people only pay using PayPal goods and services to protect themselves, but if you come across someone with long standing buy/sell history on PB and they only take e-transfer, and you're not comfortable with that, move on...

As for the mod asking the seller to not use buy/sell if he's not willing to use PayPal, I think that's a bit overboard, many legitimate transactions take place with e-transfer or other methods, it's a risk and I don't recommend it, but it doesn't automatically make someone a scammer.
