Possible account fraud linked to the username skittles. He/she bought a protein skimmer off of me in the hardware classifieds. Everythingn was done through paypal... my due dilligence was done and saved me from losing money, provided tracking number and delivery to the correct address, etc. But the buyer is claiming unauthorized purchase....who knows? Probably a hijacked account, so please be weary of this person until everything gets sorted out.

Like I said BEWARE of skittles

That's pretty lame. Seems like there have been a couple people that have gotten burnt lately. Is there a blacklist or something people can check before buying/selling?

We need a blacklist for this very reason (to support our honest members). That is what my intentions are with this post. Hopefully the moderators will create one to make it easier to weed out the deadbeats.

+1 on the black list. That is, so long as there is some sort of verification method.
So now (03/31/12), I have an imitation Cadlight Artisan 50 cube, a 90 g 30" tall show tank, and a 100 g. Slowly downsizing so I can fit a couch back into my small apartment. 07/19/12 Said ba bie to all three tanks, now have a 80 tall for sale, and a 90 LeeMar fully stocked skimming in the DT. AND still no sofa.

skittles is still lurking on the forum, and has not responded to my PM's calling him out. Kind of fishy! Please beware of this person and do not do business with him. He will retract his paypal purchase and say that it was an unauthorized purchase.

MAKE SURE YOU REQUIRE A SIGNATURE FOR ANYTHING 250.00 AND OVER WITH PAYPAL

You just know the person in question is guilty as hell if they do not respond to the thread about him.
