    BUYER BEWARE : j0hnnyringo, blackberry torch, iphone4 iphone 4

    Tried to buy phone off him. He keeps wanting payment through paypal "GIFT", not a purchase.
    He states "GIFT" avoids fee's, but I'm pretty sure I lose all protection through paypal (maybe can get back from CreditCard eventually).

    He claims he is from Vancouver, but when I said I have friends there that can meet him, he says he is working in PEI for a few months.
    I say I have friends there that can meet him, he goes back to wanting paypal.
    I even say i can pay more if he meets in person, so I can check out the phone, but he refuses.

    I've reported to mods, but I just want to help anyone else who might be talking to him.

    NOTE: he just created a new user account jhumin‎

    Oh, and I paid him 400 with a paypal "purchase" first (not a "GIFT").
    And he only refunded 399, stating that paypal took some refund fee.

    What kind of ******** is that?

    Blackberry torch and Iphone 4 are just keywords when people search for phones

    I don't find jhumin‎ neither.

    I banned j0hnnyringo and your title is kinda confusing.
