Default WATCHOUT for HeliHigh

Hey fellow Freaks, Im putting out this alert in case somebody comes across this fella HeliHigh, I purchased a 450x from him back on the 8th of this month, once I made payment he went quiet and wont respond to my PM's or emails. I havnt heard a peep from him, if you look at his profile you would think him a good fella, I thought something may have happened but I noticed today that he has been back on Helifreak on the 21st of this month, so I know he has received my PM's, I have a paypal claim against him,, I dont usually bash anyone and most times just take the bruises and just go on, but I dont want any of you to possibly get scammed by this fella. I will also post appropriate FB for him as well

heres the heli i purchased

This is crazy, one of the members on HF just sent me this link, this is the heli I purchased on Helifreak, and here it is on craigslist, the reason i know it is the same one is because it has the same phone number that heliHi gave me

I hate when people do this on here. I love to buy and sell used, it is a part of the hobby i enjoy. Why do this?

And you know the heli karma gets them.

Man, that sucks bad. What a jerk. If you look on his profile, he has one friend. Maybe PM that guy and see if he knows him personally. Maybe the friend can convince him to do the right thing.

Hopefully you didn't gift him the money. If you marked it in Paypal as payment for an item, then you'll be covered by buyer's protection (hopefully).

I've PM'd the "friend" on his profile. Looks local to him, hopefully he can help you resolve this.

Too bad for sure. Having no feedback would've given me reason for concern and maybe shop elsewhere though.

That's nice of you to do that but be very very careful... If you search through my post history you can see I went and recovered a T-Rex 700 nitro for a gentleman on here that was ripped off by someone that lives 45 mins from me.

This person that had the helicopter was a "convicted" rapist.... Not smart on my part but I did take the chance, and friends of mine knew where I was going just incase I didn't come back. Fortunately the guy actually seemed pretty nice, just misguided and lazy to pack the helicopter and ship it back to the original owner.

He handed it over to me no questions asked and had a brief conversation about the hobby. He was new and nervous about what to do next.

Be careful if you go anywhere!

Ive contacted Kyle through facebook which is the only way I have to get a hold of him and he told me that the money for this has been refunded. I sent him the link to this thread and told him to get on here and show the paypal documentation about the refund.
His side of it was that the refund was asked for before he even had a chance to ship it so he refunded the money. That's all I know about it.

Edit:
He responded to my facebook msg from this morning and insists that the seller was refunded his money by paypal.

GCchoppers, Do you have anything showing that the money has not been refunded?

This is the screenshot he sent me. Looks to me like a refund was issued.

Actually, the screenshot looks like a dispute was opened and they found in favor of the buyer (GCchoppers).

It doesn't look like Kyle was straight with you, as the refund was forced by Paypal, and wasn't a choice of Kyle.

Likely the screenshot is legitimate, but the question is why did Kyle not follow through with the shipment, or issue a refund on his own if he couldn't? Why did it have to escalate into a dispute?
