Sus to say the least. Is there a way to be sure though?

How did you search it? I used google lens on a few of the pics but nothing came up.

I did the same thing, just went thru the pics and one hit. Scammers read this forum, don’t want to give to much away.

Got scammed by Kolko22, he was labeled as a verified scammer shortly after I sent him money. He gave some typical scammer type responses to my questions. He then posted a tracking number on my PayPal dispute, he had it seem like it was coming to me but wasn’t in my name or to my address.
Even the package dims and weight didn’t jive. I don’t have any experience with disputing things on PayPal, seems is trying to stretch this out.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Screen capture all correspondence and transactions, keep all emails and texts, only go through PayPal goods and services. And you always be covered in the end. May take a bit of time but they’ll cover it if you have all documentation.

Did that, nice to know.

Thanks

Had my case closed twice awarding the scammer, opened the case for a third time. All they have to do is call FedEx to verify the reported tracking number was not to me. This is not the support from PayPal that I thought I would get.
Pretty frustrating.

Completed purchase through PayPal. He mailed me a jar of jelly and some rags, presumably to appear to weigh a similar amount.

Opened a claim with PayPal. Looks like this listing has been up for a while, so I assume he’s gotten several other people.

Bought a stem off this guy, paid with Venmo to his girlfriend and he never sent it. Paid April 4th. He communicated well said he received payment But wont reply now.

Did you try sending text or call to the number listed on the ad? Might help. Venmo also has purchase protection like PayPal if you used goods and services.

Sadly the reality for me is I only do in-person deals or order from reputable sites like Amazon, and Worldwide Cyclery.. I do not do ebay or others I do not trust venmo, PayPal, etc.

Paid for his 40's over a week ago, tracking attached to PayPal goods and services payment shows a package coming from the Netherlands, and being signed for by 'a neighbor' and my address doesn't work. Package size nowhere near 40 size and weight, no response on pb messenger for a week or so now. PayPal dispute raised.
