FYI this guy is back on the prowl again, this time under a brand new user profile with the name “rollingpapers” . Same exact approach when he was scamming via “phreshies” looking for a quick pay on high-value prints to the same exact “phreshprints@hotmail.com” PayPal account. Going to see how long I can string him along this time around.

Just got this message from him after faking a friends/family PayPal to him for $900:

“Could you instead send it to me through cash app. My phone number is 9192929733”

Decided to send some middle finger emojis to the phone number instead, would be a shame if he received more from other EB’ers...

Dude’s too lazy to change his PayPal address... doubt he’s sophisticated enough to juggle a burner!

I dont know if it is a scam or not yet but for the first time since ive been using this site i had to file a claim or make a report with paypal for a transaction from this site.

The user "phoreverdead" and i messaged back and forth about me buying a print from him. I eventually sent a payment using paypals goods and services. He messaged me back that he received the payment and would be shipping the item. Then no contact for 2 weeks and stopped responding to messages on herr. I tried sending an email to the address he gave me for his paypal and still no reply.

Hopefully it will all work out and part of me feels bad going through paypal but i didnt know how long was appropriate to wait while not getting any reply at all.
