Goldintl Is The Worst Kind Of Seller

Either a scammer or a liar or both. Definitely avoid!

You probably should add some content to your post. Without any proof, no one will care....
Also I searched the name as you typed it, and no one by that name comes up for me.

He listed a Hulk over the weekend, took PayPal payment and then just vanished despite all assurances. The post has now been removed and the poster banned. I'm nearly certain he got other TRFers to send him money on the same watch.

Looks like he hijacked the PayPal account of a Peter Neelands in Toronto in order to pull this off.

I am in the dispute process with PayPal and AMEX currently. He was this member:

I also posted on this in the "watch out" section.

His profile page is a red flag. I hope your dispute works out. Using PP and Amex I would think so.

So far, so good; AMEX was excellent in dealing with it quickly and it's taking its normal course on PP.

Agreed re: red flag but his preference for being paid via PayPal was just enough to make me move on it. Whoops.

I'll update here when I have more.

I outed 2 scammers this weekend. If it smells funny it probably is. I insist on FaceTime/WhatsApp video and ask for i.d. on the call.
