I need your help for a money scam I was involved with

Long story short... kinda.

I sent a guy $80 for shocks F&F on paypal for my old tacoma through a well known tacoma website, which he is now a part of the scammer list.

Yes I know I'm technically fvcked, but I have done this tons of times and never got burned.... Well I got burned.

Guy sent me a couple e-mails and such, saying "oh ya i forgot to send it" then cut communication all together.

Well I found him on FB and sent him a couple messages and finally today after 3 months of messaging him, he blocked me on FB.

Anyone feel like blowing him up? I don't even want my money back, at this point I just wanna flood his FB and troll...

He is in the infantry and currently in training at Ft Irwin in CA. I'm not sure what army bases are located near Conway/Myrtle beach, SC (where is lives), so he may be a reservist. I work on a joint base so I will see if I can find out about him from some Army friends, I'm sure they have a similar system that we have for locating members and their commands. Do you know how many others he has ripped off or the total money he has taken?

Thanks, and no I don't, but it really seemed out of character for him because he had done business on that tacoma forum before. He has canceled numerous refund requests I've made on PayPal, and always decline my friend requests on FB, and he knew my full name, so he knows why I was contacting him. What a doucher.

So the Tacoma forum is contacting him and they actually have his cell number. I guess this particular forum cracks down on scammers pretty hard. I know his phone is on him, he posts videos and pics daily.

If you use Paypal, just file a dispute and get your money back. Although it sounds like you've waited over 3 months so I don't think Paypal will cover you anymore.

You missed the F&F part.

I've dealt with F&F payments MANY times and you can usually tell who's trustworthy or not. I had constant communication with this guy and saw he was active on the tacoma site, FB, and emails, usually a good sign of someone that doesn't want to deal with the heat of being banned from sites and tracked down... After about 250 Paypal deals, I finally got a sour deal, not a bad record lol.

Ya so we know he is able to get the PAYPAL app, and probably already has it... All he needs to do is hit REFUND when I send him the request, which I do DAILY.

He's gonna parachute over your house and poop through a crack on your roof and it's gonna land right on your lap as you're sitting on the toilet.

My bad, I didn't connect that F&F = the no fee gift option.

I never use this option when buying from someone I don't personally know.

That is why you never use the paypal as a gift option. For one it is stealing from Paypal who is providing a service you wish to utilize. For two, it makes it impossible to have an recourse. You got what you deserved. Next time pay the 3%.
