    *****she emailed me saying she sent it, and she gave me the tracking number as well!*********



    Okay so I found a Blackberry Storm for $200 on Kijiji, but from another city and asked if she'd be able to ship it to where I live through paypal.

    She said:
    "Ya send it to [email protected] if its a scam dont bother"
    I then told her it wasn't, I was just desperate for a Blackberry Storm and that my phone's been broken for 2 weeks.

    We then discussed shipping and everything, and I paid her 5 days later. So I then replied saying I paid and she replied saying she'd send it tomorrow. I then replied to email me the tracking number.

    The next day I emailed her asking if she sent it and she said she was at school, later she said she had to wait for my payment to get through since it was apparently at "high risk" but then it was cleared 3 hours later.

    I didn't hear from her for about 3 days, when she said:

    "Oh sorry, I haven't been on, I'll send it tmw."
    So I got excited and such. To find out she doesn't reply for another 3 days. So I get frustrated and email her saying I want my money back if she isn't going to send it.

    She then replies the same day saying:

    "my mom just got ran over by a car.. this isn't my main focus right now"

    That was 2 days ago.. should I trust this or jump on PayPal dispute quickly?

    Tell her that her mom should of looked both ways before crossing the street.

    Then tell her its been more than 7 business days and your time is money. If she doesn't send it immediately you call up PayPal and tell them to deliver a TRAIN next time to her moms doorstep.

    However, this is just me.

    Dispute it. If someone has taken your money, then I wouldn't trust it. The longer you wait the harder it will be to dispute it.

    Paypal dispute. It's totally a scam. Plus the dispute process is slow enough, don't waste any more time.

    If you even have to question this, you deserve to lose your money. File it NOW!

    My dad emailed her saying he's going to call the Ontario Police department if she doesn't send the phone or money in the next 24 hours.

    Filed dispute, it escalated to a claim from PayPal though, is that a good thing?

    Who are you...Homer Simpson? File a dispute. Even if she were telling the truth, I'd find a Storm from somebody who better understands a business transaction. I read a few days ago about Best Buy selling new ones for $49.

    Yeah I wouldn't trust her after she has jerked your chain so much already. Force the return of the money and tell her to play on the highway.

    File the claim with PayPal. I am a Sheriff's Sergeant (In the city right next to Ontario) and the faster you file the claim the better. If you get your money back the police report is a waste of time because the D.A. wont file. If you don't get your money, go ahead and file a police report.

    If you have any legal questions feel free to PM me.
