Bad You guys ever deal with a situation like this?

    While the bad PP address could be corrected by calling PP, that isn't the way the OP chose to handle it. Once that decision was made it is not unreasonable and possibly necessary to wait for the refund. All offers after that were just that offers and it is at the OP's discretion to accept or reject. Without other knowledge, I will give John the benefit of the doubt that this was not a scam, just a deal that didn't come together and best for both parties to move on.

    Hey Peter, hope all is well and you are healthy. :)

    If it was you, would you have given John the benefit of the doubt and sent more money to the right address?
    Or just giving him the benefit of the doubt after the fact?

    1st decision would be how much I wanted the item and how much effort I was willing to put into it
    If I really wanted it I would call PP and explain the address error and hopefully it would get resolved there.
    I would not send out more money, without being credited for the 1st-so it would be the original payment getting to John or wait on a refund and go from there.

    Totally understandable. I assumed something different when I first read your post...and we all know what “assuming” can turn into. Better to ask for clarification. :)
    Thank you for the polite response.

    This is a prime example of GB&U working at peak efficiency, thanks @Kinniku

    It looks like @Kinniku and @Barrettboy both dodged bullets dealing with this guy. And many ignore lists got one more addition.

    @Kinniku
    I would put this guy’s user name in the title so that others can beware of dealing with him and safe themselves the headache of his arrogant entitlement that comes with dealing with @John A Agatucci.

    Wow! I would have already been on alert with no feedback. At the slightest sign of danger I would have bailed too.

    And now @John A Agatucci has limited who can view his profile. That is an automatic "do not deal with" of people I don't know on the exchange. If his behavior as displayed and outlined in this thread has not excluded him from all future deals, that last action has.

    I think he had that locked from the word go. Couldn't even go find the sales post when this started.

    Hmm. I thought I had went and looked at his profile when this started. Kind of odd to have your profile locked and be active on the exchange. A user trying to hide their information and trying to engage in transactions is a huge red flag.

    Either way, oh well. I doubt anyone who reads this will want to deal with him and I hope no one who tries to look at his profile, finds it blocked, still thinks it is a good idea to conduct business with him.

    No kidding. That's about the first thing I do when I see an interesting ad is see what other posts the person has.

    Wow. I've never had anyone I transacted with act like a crazy ex girlfriend. This guy has way too much time on his hands to overthink things. Thanks for the warning, John's being added to ignore.

    As soon as I read the first posts in this thread I thought:

    “I bet the seller will claim he has lots of “vouches””.

    that always makes me laugh. Hahaha.
