    A person answered my ad for desoildering gun. I paid him $65.00 for the item. As soon as PayPal funds cleared he put a hold on shipping (a company called fasttrackexpress) he answered 1 email saying the reason for the hold was company had technical issue, said I would get it next day that was 2 days ago. SO BEWARE OF A HAM GOING BY AC0SA

    A better way to phrase the subject line is "Beware anyone who asks you for Friends & Family on Paypal"

    If you say "yes" to that request, your money is gone.

    Appears to be, at least in part, a self-inflicted problem. If there is any good news it was $65.00 and not $650.00.

    As far as I can tell the real AC0SA has never posted here and likely knows nothing of this transaction.
