Hi all,
I hope you guys can help me how to do. I posted thread wanted to buy Deltec 400i skimmer a few weeks ago. One new member "1 charlie" pm me his friend got one and asked me to contact "[email protected]". I reached Matt to discuss about the skimmer.He is very fast to reply me whenever i send email to him.
After discussed the price, he preferred Zelle or Paypal "[email protected]" Friend and Family F&F methods of payment.
I trusted and paid him by Paypal. You guys know what's going on the next. o_O

There are some stickied threads at the top of the selling forum that contain very important info and warnings against this very thing happening.

This ATTEMPT happened to me 3 times with a Trident unit and I did NOT fall for it . ONLY purchase paypal goods and Services. With friends option, you have no protection and am truly sorry you got scammed as you likely did.
I will reach out for you to our staff but not much they can likely do.
