That’s pretty cold.there is a sucker born every minute. all it takes is to offer a good deal.
never give or send money to someone you dont know. or at least have spoken to and verify they are real and have a proper phone number and address.
and never send money you cant stop payment on.
and sending friends and family for items is basically cheating paypal out of their fee. so you really deserve to get taken as you were part of a scam which was working both ways.
