cargoflipper has been posting lots for sale in Flipside and other groups on FB, always posts then deletes, reposts for cheaper, probably makes a sale then deletes.

I took the bait and bought a print I wanted. was prob too good to be true but I paid goods/service (duh). seller notified me it would take him a few weeks to ship the product. I have found out he told the same story to many people and had no intentions of ever shipping the items. he has ignored messages and emails regarding it and when he was tagged and PM today by a handful of people, he deactivated his Facebook profile where most were communicating. he has scammed others out of posters and I assume has numerous claims filed against him through PayPal.

he’s a long time member of the community... so I had some reservations about posting this. but when it walks and talks like a pig, it’s a drymounting pig.

if ya bought anything from him, file your claims accordingly.

if you paid friends/family, then idk go have a drink or two.

No bueno. At least you paid G/S so you will get your money back.

As an aside...I suggest editing out his name.

Dang, this sucks. Bought a print from him back in May over Facebook and didn't have any issues, although he did the same "I'm going to delete the post now so I don't get any more PM's" thing which I thought was odd (instead of just updating the post to read SOLD) and potentially a red flag at the time. Hope he clears this up with everyone he's made a deal with recently.

Just opened a Paypal case against him this morning . Bought a print from Facebook , I paid goods and services
He says he shipped, and I see he paid for a label ,, but not in usps system after 2 weeks , so filed my case
On the other hand, I bought 2 prints from him 3 mo ago, and they arrived fine.

Maybe cargoflipper is chasing the dragon and now needs funds for the chase

HA! That was a good guess JJ ! , here is what cargoflipper wrote me about 10 days ago.....

"Hey Arterre
" I’m currently on vacation ( hence the sale, to get more money for the wife) I will be back on Tuesday! Ill send over tracking once shipped."

so there you have it , Its the expense of taking the Dragon on a vacation

I have never ever liked this posterkiller. He's always been a little bitch. Hope everyone who got played gets sorted out by PP.


PS buying a frozen poster huh?
