Default User kibee is a scam beware

ATTENTION ANYONE READING THIS POST!!

I texted the above user and we agreed on a price for an 80W Tiagra to be payed on PayPal. Everything was good until I sent the money Goods/Services and I even added an extra 6% to cover the PayPal fee (plus some extra). All the sudden he has issues with PayPal is telling me to request a refund and now wants me to pay with Cashapp. This is clearly a scam and I see all of his posts have been on classified section stuff, and he is a brand new member. STEER CLEAR OF THIS USER!

Now I have to wait up to 3 weeks to get my refund from PayPal... Going to call them later today. Thankfully I paid goods/services.

This is the second post I've seen this week about this user. Clearly a scam artist, and apparently not a very good one.

Mod 11 is on it.

What a dick lol.

I should have stopped when I knew the deal was pretty much too good to be true, and he kept using the word "kindly" like it was a IO generated response, but I figured what's the harm if I use PayPal's buyer protection. Well the harm is it takes FOREVER to get your money back!

Precisely why you NEVER use friends and family. No exceptions

He PM'd me re-my WTB SP Rod post... I dug around & saw he was new & his only 2 posts were responses to people's WTB posts...
I PM'd the THT Mods & they said they deleted his Acct...
I even PM'd someone he responded to & warned them, b/c I was ~99% sure he was a Scammer...

That sucks when people pull this stupid sh**. Maybe the MODS need to mandate a minimum amount of post before a user can post stuff up for sale? I don't see a problem with a minimum of 20 posts at least.

Actually he wasn't even posting stuff for sale... Kibeee was responding to WTB threads &/or sending PMs to people posting WTB threads & somehow he magically had exactly what they wanted at 'Crazy Low Prices' lol

I understand why some people feel way, but w/a little 'due diligence' (& maybe some luck) I've been involved in dozens (maybe hundreds) of PP/FF Deals (Buyer & Seller) & I don't think I've ever been 'screwed'... but there's always a 1st time...
