Wow......this is why I absolutely refuse to trade unless its in person. You have no protection in a case like this. Onky way to do it with some kind of insurance is pay for his through paypal, have him pay for yours through paypal and offset the money and at least then theyll have to provide proof you received it.

Ouch. Good luck.

I once bought a Vario heli off Ebay from Puerto Rico. Made it through customs in about a week. Made it within a hundred miles of Kansas City, Then UPS shipped it back to Florida to go through customs again. Took almost a month to get that heli, but I did finally get it.

Why did you (supposedly) ship a heli to PR?


Hope you get your heli back! Pretty crazy to straight up trade with a new member with pretty much no feedback.

Pro tip: Never sell, trade, or buy any big-dollar item from anyone online that doesn't have an extensive post history or extensive feedback. Ever.

Odd that you say his name is Luis and there was some sort of strange PR connection with the shipping, as I seem to remember a guy by the same first name on RC groups a few years ago that claimed to be from PR that was constantly scamming people under different user names.

You won't like what I have to say, but it's the same thing that's been said time and time again in here. The classifieds are here as a convenience and HF bears no responsibility towards transactions between private parties.

We try to hold off on banning these types until the issue is resolved so multiple avenues of communication remain available to the "victim".

Some interesting info you all might find "curious". I poked around in the user manager to find Gambe's e-mail address. Didn't ring a bell but then I used it in a Google search and found these little nuggets right here on HF:

https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=729855
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=723616
https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=724877

Seems "Gambe" is really tedyporano as the email address in that thread is the very same one being used for the Gambe account.

tedyporano's location is listed as "Florida" and Gambe's as "hartford". Additionally, the Gambe account lists a real name as "brendalis negron"

I did a search for that name and found a FB account for a woman named "Brendali Negron" who is from Puerto Rico. Not sure if that means anything but it sure raised my eyebrows a bit.

Tim W, does the phone number you have match the one in the 1st post of the 2nd (or 3rd) thread I posted the link to? How about email address(es)?

Is this the G700 you traded him? https://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=780514

Anyone recognize the email address xrayrevo1 "at" gmail.com?

[edit]

A little more "curious" info:

Gambe's join date: 8-16-2016

tedyporano's last activity date: 08-17-2016 06:18 PM
