Don't Know If I Am Being Scammed

Post by jchinsky » Tue Dec 31, 2013 1:28 am

Hello, I just sent a 3 Stormravens to a user called jpgr222, and I don't know if he is legit. I have been emailing him throughout the day, but as soon as I send him the tracking number he goes silent, and his history of posts disappeared. I can still stop the shipping, as I just did it a couple hours ago. What should I do, and does anybody know personally if he is legit?
Thank You,
jchinsky

I wouldn't send anything first to a low ref trader without getting complete home and work contact details.

I should have done that sooner, but its a little late now. I have his address and his work email, because it is from University of Kentucky. Should I stop the shipping, or is it possible he went to bed?
Thank You,

Also, were you talking about me or jpgr222 when you said "a low ref trader"? Because he was the one to ask for a trade, I just put up an ad.
Thank You,

Never mind, it's all good. He just wasn't on his computer all day. Sorry for the false alarm.
Thank You,

You might want to take this opportunity to get all of that missing contact info.

You should also edit your posts to remove the guy's User ID. It's kind of like calling him out for having done something wrong, when he really didn't.
