Someone ripped me off for 70-300 cx Lens on this forum...

I've been lucky with online buying/selling with honest folks on many forum on sports and camera forums for many years.

I wanted 70-300 CX lens and posted on wanted forum of this Dpreview before Christmas. This guy sent me a PM (a registered poster on this forum) and said he has one for sale. We negotiated then he sent me PayPal invoice, which I duly paid.

After 3 weeks, nearly $700  later...no lens...no communications..... I've sent polite emails and messages for info/tracking number. No reply.

Now going through new experience of trying to claim money back from PayPal but I'am not sure how successful the outcome will be.

Not good start to 2018! Buyers beware.
