I purchased (or so I thought) a Burgos - Pulp Fiction print from a member on here who is pretty active. Now he hasn’t returned my messages. He has been on the site multiple times...other than trying to get my money back through PayPal do people call out thieves? Do people get banned for stealing? I paid Feb 14th, and haven’t heard anything since.

Is this common on EB? I’ve bought and sold a fair amount but guess I’ve been lucky with good hard working honest folks.

if you paid through paypal goods and services, can't you easily get your money back?

While 2.14 isn’t “that” long ago, I filed with PayPal a a few days ago, but it will probably take a month to actually get my money back vs him just sending it back.. I am not super active on EB but it shows when people visit the site and that’s when I realized he has been active on EB almost daily and simply not responding to me. I don’t want the poster anymore from him. Just my money back.

could be one we all know- but there will be increased interest if that person is posting daily

safest thing you can do is name the person - EB nick please

And put his name in the title!

Then the rest of us can start gathering torches.....

Unless the culprit me, then another simple PM will do. I'm just lazy and hard of hearing.

So if you don't want the print still, mind if I buy it from them?
