p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Possibly defrauded??


Hi guys,

I might have been defrauded my a certain JacksonPix for $1600. I paid him as family or relative. I paid him August 2 and last time I heard from him is last friday morning.


He was online today so decided to Pm him here but no dice. I've been emailing him since then because he promised to send it yesterday(Saturday) but I did not recieve any tracking of the shipment.

I emailed him saturday night, sunday morning and sunday noon and afternoon but I got no response. I doubt if he's that busy without any access to is email based on the back and forth emails and PM we had for several days prior to payment.

I did lodge a dispute on Paypal. I hope I get my $1600 back even if I send it as a payment to a family/relative.

His name is Carter Campbell Tan on his paypal account and he is from Tampa, Florida. He uses a Jackson Photography email address. I'mI so stressed right now because of this f***ing guy.

Poker face,

I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but if you pay with PayPal gift you're probably not getting your money back. There are a million posts here that all say the same thing:

Never ever ever pay with PayPal gift.

If this guy is actually from the USA, I recommend you file a police report. Good luck.

Is paying as a family and gift the same? My Canadian Paypal acct has separate category for send money to a realtive and another for send as a gift.

I hope I still can get it back.

Family and gift are exactly the same. PayPal offers family and gift because you might have need to give money to someone you know. By using that, you essentially agree that you're giving away the money and not buying goods or services.

I recommend you file a police report, $1600.00 usd isn't exactly chump change, they may be interested in investigating this.

I still recommend you file a police report. The United States and Canada have a pretty good relationship. If you speak to the right person on your end you may be able to get an investigation started.

Yes. If you don't get shipping confirmation by tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, send a PM (personal message) to advise Fred about this, using the "Moderated by: Fred Miranda" link at the top of most forum pages. As Victor said, you're totally out of luck if the seller doesn't actually ship, but a bit of pressure from Fred might resolve the situation, or get the seller banned from FM, at the very least.

Can you post a link to the sale listing in question, and even the profile of the user who you transacted with?

Depending on your email provider, the header info is embedded in the email. Look for "view message source" or something similar.
