To Be Clear, I took ownership for utilizing an inappropriate process for paying this scam artist. This was not the main topic of this post. I was mostly warning people on the scam and detailed my mistakes so that maybe someone else won't do it. I can only assume that the people that are intent on making sure I understand that I "Defrauded" PayPal have some stock in the company and are butt hurt that I did so because beating this dead horse is just not worth anyone's time. Beyond that I already gave my happy ending. Hopefully someone finds this thread helpful and if not it will disappear into the spiderwebs of time. But to those that want to make sure that I am fully aware of my shortcomings I assure you that I am and hope you too have a wonderful and prosperous life!
