please keep us posted!

ETA do not close the claim and be very very specific when dealing with paypal!
This is what I'm thinking. Seems to convenient that you got the "wrong payment address" and then it just magically goes to someone who is also on DS and who is owed money by the same mama. Yeah right! I think this needs to be brought to the attention of someone high up here with the original screenname and the Paypal email address of the person that is holding the money. Something is fishy...

ETA: Keep your dispute open! Do NOT close it. No matter what she tells you. Paypal will automatically close it after you get your money back.

Re: Please give me input!

SO let me see if I have this right...
you bought dipes from Mama A
Mama A owed money to Mama B so gave you Mama B's PP addy to pay her
Mama A then disapeared without sending you what you bought
Mama B has your money that Mama A owed to her
Mama B will not refund your money because it was owed to her by Mama A

is this accurate?
As I see it you should have paid Mama A and had Mama A pay Mama B... but you had no idea you were not paying Mama A correct?

I would keep the claim in PayPal and try and get your money back... this is between Mama A and Mama B and you should not be stuck in the middle without $35 and without what you paid for! I feel sorry for all the mamas involved in this mess

I'd be fumin'. You know what, if you ever try to sell or buy something on here and she did leave you neg feedback. Just explain why you have it, maybe send a link to this thread. I am so sorry. Hope this gets resolved soon. She is not right, and I hate that this mama did that to you, or should I say both mama's.

Re: Please give me input!

that sounds like one person pretending to be two people. What kind of feedback does she have?
Don't worry about unwarranted feedback, the mods are great about removing retaliatory feedback.

Re: Please give me input!

ohhhh ok, so the second mama doesn't want to return the money because she was owed the money, even though it's not her money to keep because it came from the OP.
So both of them got scammed. That SUCKS.
I would still file with paypal, and encourage the other mama to do the same if she wants her money, so she can get refunded from the proper person.

Hmm... I read akrab's post, and I get that... but I still think that Mama B is lying and is really also Mama A.

Ok, this isn't going to make much sense... but I played around on this game site when I was a teenager where people would constantly try to scam you just like this. (But for game points and items, not real money!).

I honestly don't think this is two people. *IF* you can find out the IP addresses of each Mama through DS and PP, you could find out if its the same person.

I just can't believe this is even happening though. What a thief.

Mods HAVE checked it out - it IS two entirely different people
