Default Anyone knows this HP member?

Recently I was looking for AF tobacco, and I saw a guy selling it in the trade section, his name was x 0hookah0 x. I asked him about the AF, he was quite friendly and awnsered my questions within ours.
Anyway, I bought some AF tobacco from him.
I paid the money on May 27th. That was a thursday. It would take him 2-3 days to withdraw the cash from paypal, and that monday was a banking day in the UK, so he would ship it on June 2nd.

After 9 days, I still got nothing, so I messaged him about it. He would send me a message if he shipped out the tobacco, but he didn't. No awnsers from him. I checked his HP page. Last login day was May 28th, one day after I paid the cash.
In other words.. just a scam. I know trading is at own risk..

My question: did anyone trade with this guy, x 0hookah0 x, before? Or anyone knows him? He lives in London..

Nah, Didn't know him. At least it sounds like you didn't dump a bunch of money on him. Just one order of AF right? Could of been worse.

at least you used paypal also.. file a dispute then raise it to a claim after a few days.. if the seller does not respond, paypal will issue your money back.

hope that helps.

Does that count, even if I sent is as a gift?

edit: I tried to claim the cash back, but I sent is as a gift, so that option don't work..

I hate the fact that I can't trust people anywhere... I even have to watch out on one of the most friendly forum I've ever been on, HookahPro...

Start a trade review thread for him. Give him feedback accordingly.

I sent out a dispute as 'unauthorized transaction', as normal doesn't work because it's a gift. Hopefully that doesn't matter.

I sent him messages via HookahPro private messages. I e-mailed him, messaged him via facebook (got his profile with the e-mail he gave me) but no awnsers..

In the words of the best belcher this world has known, "I say we blow their fuckin houses up."

In all seriousness, maybe give paypal a call and explain whats the deal, trying not to use the word tobacco. Ask why it was denied and go from thier.

If you use paypal gift it's not to be used for online trades/sales transactions. Paypal typically won't help you with gifted money hence the term "Gift". Also paypal charges no fees for gifted funds. They probably won't help. Good luck though.

If you have his FB profile link it here to name and shame him, also go to the police and report it they can catch him easily, make sure you have the email convo and paypal recipte, open p a claim people like this shouldnt be allowed to trade online and steal peoples money, if his done it to you he will do ti again

Wow really?
Give him some time. He might be in the hospital, at a funeral, or something.
He's been around for a while and I don't think he would scam you on such a small scale.
Also, he has sold plenty of other things successfully (Looking at his old trade threads).

Be cool guys.

Scarcity:

- His last login day was May 28th, I made my payment on May 27th. So one day after my payment he goes offline for 2+ weeks without giving me one awnser.
- He doesn't awnser e-mails, HP messages.
- I got his facebook account via his e-mail adress. I made a fake account to message him, but he added that account to his blocked members list.

So I'm 100% sure it's just scam.. or he should have some really good reasons for not awnsering me for more than 2 weeks but block me on FB meanwhile.
I mailed Tunisiano, he met him in person once and told me he lives in West London. When I am at home again I'll post his FB, and I'll try to get friends with him with a fake account so I can maybe get his adress or more information.
