Bought a gun online... scammed by Snake_ESS

got scammed $320 on forums buying an AEG. paypal can't do anything since its not an Ebay transaction.... seller hasn't replied to anything after payment went through. (friend referred him to me on ASC and i am awaiting verification from a local verifier)

his username on ASC is Snake_ESS. I actually tried filing a dispute on paypal heres what they sent me.His name is Mathieu Bigras and he is located in Quebec. My plan is to contact the RCMP next and get to the very bottom of this.

------------

Dear Timothy Chan,

After careful review, we have concluded our investigation of the Buyer
Complaint described below.

We have decided in your favor, however, we were unable to recover any funds
from the seller's account. As stated in the PayPal User Agreement, recovery
of funds associated with a Buyer Complaint cannot be guaranteed.

Please know that we will make our best effort to recover the funds in
question if they become available in the seller's account in the future and
will take appropriate action against the seller. Such action may include
issuing a warning, a temporary restriction, or terminating the account.
Keep in mind that PayPal uses a number of factors to determine when to take
action, including member complaints. Due to privacy laws, we cannot discuss
the details of any action taken. We hope you understand our policy and that
it assures you that you are safe using PayPal.

Transaction Details
-----------------------------------

Seller's name: Mathieu Bigras
Seller's email: jenelesaispas@msn.com

Transaction date: Feb 3, 2009
Transaction amount: -$320.00 CAD

What to Do Next

This case is now closed. No further action is required by you at this time.

Other Details

im now just waiting on VISA to sort things out. hopefully i can get a chargeback. Since this is not an EBAY transaction, PAYPAL refused to do anything... I talked to 4 guys over the phone and they gave me the same answers.(had to be on hold for like 30 minutes)

If anybody can get a hold of him please tell him to either refund the money or i will take legal action against this. It is definitely Fraud since he ran off with my money without shipping the item or replying to any messages/emails.

First of all his AV should be revoked by admins for selling to a non-AV'd member, and if you paid by VISA you'll get your money back.

Wow that sucks!

Somebody around here must know the guy! Guys in Quebec who know him should talk to an admin as soon as possible.

I never saw the guy at any game as far as I remember... Someone surely did.

Let me know if you get anything sorted out by the end of the week.

If not, I'll revoke Snake_ESS' age verification status.

Unfortunately, beyond that, there is very little that can be done by us. Your next step would be contacting police.

Otherwise yes there is about 4-5 of them in Quebec city.

Upon close look at his posts, I think he is located in Valleyfield...

http://www.canada411.ca/search/si/1/...leyfield%2C+QC

But he plays with Montreal players, and you may have better luck contacting them...

paypal didn't refuse to do anything, they are unable to do anything. there's a difference. the guy has already taken the money. If the money becomes available in the future you will get it, which means his account is marked.
