John Gibson [email protected] - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports
PayPal/Craigs List Scam

This is a Complaint / Review about John Gibson [email protected]

So I'm Selling a PS3 (For $175) via Craigslist and this guy ( John Gibson [email protected] ) contacts me about purchasing. He tells me he want s to buy it for his son in college and wants to pay via PayPal and have me ship it out to his out to his son (I know already fishy) but i decided to see if he will do it. Next he said he will pay for shipping and is willing to pay $210 for it to cover cost. So i give him my paypal address to send the payment through.

The next day he contacts me and tells me the payment is sent, and states he added an ectra $100 because he cannot ship it through his company (WOW a whole extra $100 for little ole me) I check my paypal balance & payment nor a Paypal "Youv'e got Money" e-mail. I tell him i need the transaction detail link, he sends me some bull e-mail from ([email protected]) which is supposed to be the comfirmation code/e-mail. I look at it and its obviously fraudulent.

So now at this point I know its a scam and I proceed to entertain the idea & mess with this guy. In the e-mail the instructions the e-mail states to "Ship the package and forward the tracking code to the buyer and the funds will be credited to your account" hahah yeah right.

So i ask him again, i need the transaction detail link or i will not ship anything. By this time, he's fustrated and sending me all sorts of e-mails with PayPals seal on it and random codes, but NO OFFICIAL PAYPAL Link.

In the end i told him i will not ship anything and if the funds was deducted from his account as he said then file a dispute. Needless to say i never recieved any funds or a dispute against the fake transaction ID he sent.
