    Maybe so... but they will have to go to another COUNTRY to apprehend him.

    I'll bet you didn't check my QRZ page to find the message that someone is scamming using my name and call. I'm sorry you got burned, but please understand that as soon as I found about this I updated my profile. I do hope that you successfully prosecute him. Good luck.

    There was no disclaimer/email address at the time this scam was first reported.

    Agreed. I'm sorry, but I'm still licking my wounds, too.

    This is just crazy when I hear that someone was scammed by someone and they used Friends and Family. This is harsh but when someone uses F/F to scam Paypal I don't feel very sorry for them. If you read Paypal's TOS you are not allowed to use F/F to even sell an item to your mother. It is only to send money to a friend or family and NOT to buy any goods from a friend or family. It says that as plane as day in the TOS of Paypal.

    Sorry but that is just how it is. Read it for yourself.
    This is what the TOS says.
    "You must not use the “send money to a friend or family member” feature in your PayPal account when you are paying for goods or services."
    I hope this helps to understand what F/F is for.
