some shady stuff is going down and i need advice.

okay guys ill try and keep this simple. a few months ago i made a for sale thread to try and clean out a whole bunch of stuff i have lying around and i got rid of a few things but at one point i sold my factory headlights and went through a bunch of crap with shipping mix ups and after i got the lights back and finally got them shipped to the right place and according to the tracking number they were delivered to the right place. however the buyer said they didnt have them. crap. whatever screw it i dont care anymore i just want to be done with this whole thing so i refund the buyer completely including shipping. i dont care if i got ripped off im done trying to sell stuff online. if you cant come to my house or meet me close and pick it up yourself and put cash in my hand then im not interested in putting up with the shenanigans. i basically let the thread die after that.

today however im poking around the BST maybe looking to splurge a little bit this week and i see my old thread so obviously im going to check it. some dude from the UK that i vaguely remember speaking with a few months ago is claiming to have paid me for my tail lights? i still have the tail lights and i checked my paypal and i have not received payment from this person. after reviewing my thread i seem to remember him being all gung-ho about getting the tail lights until i gave him a shipping quote and then i stopped hearing from him and never received payment. at around the same time i started having issues with the headlights so i just completely gave up on the FS thread. what do i need to do in this situation? i mean this guy is basically claiming that i stole money from him when im sure i have not. where do i go from here? i mean if im in the wrong then i will obviously make good on it but i cannot find any evidence on my paypal of receiving payment from this guy and im pretty sure that all the payments i have are accounted for.
the really bad thing is that i have completely cleaned out my pm's since then and i couldnt tell what was or was not said between us for 100% sure if my life depended on it.
this is a link to the thread
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=229491

i guess ill start out with a simple PM and see where that takes me.

Tell him to show you where he made payment to you. Say it in a very nice way, that you don't show a payment from him and need him to prove that he paid you. He may have sent the money to the wrong person.

well, if you don't honestly think he paid you, then if its not in paypal, it wasn't done. you CANT delete paypal history, so ask him for the email address he sent it from, then check and see. if in doubt, call paypal. Usually, paypal is the only method i take, but if someone makes a payment via money order, i keep the stub, and/or make a copy of the money order or check. but chances are, he thought he paid you, but he didn't just call paypal and ask them to help you out. you pay a paypal fee for a reason, put em to work. if you have NO record of recieving payment and you should be able to check ur bank too if it was a money order/check cause they keep records too. and definitely go through paypal, if he didn't pay, he may be trying to con you. who knows. not saying he is and i'm not taking sides. but if you're saying he used paypal, then ur covered. just go through paypal and find out. no payment? no product easy as that. and obviously if you did recieve payment, just appologize like 10x and ship the product. show hiim this thread, and he/she should understand. GL

mystery solved. now not only am i an ass but im an idiot too. i gave him an old paypal account to send the money to that i have not used in a very very long time for anything but ebay and buying random things like computer components, batteries, car chargers, christmas presents, plutonium, etc. i made another paypal account about a year ago that i didnt link to my checking account with the intention of saving money. if i found something new for my car i wanted to buy i had to sell some stuff first. if i got my paypal balance high enough from selling my old stuff then i could buy the new stuff. great way to keep from emptying that checking account every week but that idea has since gone down in flames. anyhow for some odd reason i gave him my old account instead of the new one. i just put all this together about 20 minutes ago and a full refund has been issued along with a very thorough apology. yet another reason for me to be done with this crap. if im selling anything, show up with cash in hand and pick it up in person, im not doing the paypal and ship across the world thing anymore. sorry for any drama guys

at least you went through the effort to find out where the problem was, most people probably would have said screw it and left it at that.

i still cant believe that happened. im just glad that it all got sorted out. if our positions had been reversed i would have been loosing my mind. i guess this thread can be locked or whatever it is that happens to these threads when they have run their course.
