eBay scammer scams buyer then demands items back (LoL)

YouTube recommended this video for me and it’s quite a good one. Basically eBay buyer, buys a phone in this case a Samsung Galaxy of some sort, never gets the phone, never gets the refund either, eBay & PayPal say “sorry so what” leaving him high and dry, the seller meanwhile closes up shop/jumps eBay accounts/changes user names etc. some time passes and oddly 2 boxes of phones & assorted phone accessories arrive at the scammed buyers house, now here it gets interesting because the scammer has the nerve to ask the buyer to send back the box’s at his cost. Watch the video it’s worth it :p

PayPal iPhone scam via CraigsList

Here’s quite a long text conversation taken during a PayPal scam on the 2nd hand item site CraigsList (like Gumtree), the scammer tries to get the sellers name, most likely to make there scammy PayPal look a like mail look a bit more legitimate, anyhow in this case sadly for the scammer they fail, but theirs a bit of comedy at the end which the scammer does not seem to understand.
