View Full Version : J&M Paradox / Joe Leeper ripped me off ?!?

I "bought" a set of the three Argentinian versions of Storm Shadow from this guy almost a month ago, and still have not received them - he made excuses for a while, and finally stopped returning my e-mails completely. I guess he took my $140 as a gift or something. Exercise EXTREME caution when dealing with Joe, my experience was not a good one.

Crap! I was in contact with this guy regarding the same Argentinian figures, and terminated the deal when he would only accept Paypal and would not give me a physical address...he then finally gave me a PO Box #...something smelled really fishy. I am so sorry I didn't post anything here. I didn't actually have a transaction with him, and I didn't feel it was appropriate to jump to conclusions. I do have some info on him, email me privately and lets see what we can do.

Sorry that you lost that much money. I guess, though, it could have been a lot more. I don't mean to downplay your loss, but I mean that the set of 3 ninjas are worth much more than that, right? I hope you get it back.

UPDATE: I never got Joe to relpy to my e-mails, so I turned him in to Paypal. After waiting two months with no progress from Paypal, I turned it over to Discover's fraud department. I guess the complaint process is a joke over there. Discover credited my account immediately and went after Joe and Paypal both. I guess the moral here is that if something looks too good to be true, it probably is.
