1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    yep, i am the one who posted that message.

    I personally have mixed feelings about this.

    Here is why... I have traded with him back in late sept-mid october. I slightly recall a chat with him about his paypal. Don't quote me on this, but he said it was his FATHER'S.

    Ways i know this is not a habitual scammer:
    Definitely not an alt: got games and time
    +rep from many people


    I posted the comment out of precaution. Let's see how the dust settles after he logs back on.

    Hey I'm the other guy he scammed. For me it was only 15 bucks so I "refunded" the money because I didn't want my PayPal account frozen. I just want this guy marked as a scammer and hopefully more bad things will happen to him.

    Now that i am thinking about it, how is he able to chargeback on a gift? I thought it cannot be charged back.

    If he paid with a credit card then he can tell the company the charge was fraudulent and they will reverse it. Paypal, in turn, will reverse the payment he made so they don't lose money. Same thing with a bank transfer I believe

    His (or his dad's) facebook I found by searching for the paypal email https://www.facebook.com/mike.woloszyk Please message him if you got scammed and maybe try to report to authorities if anyone's from the US.

    I just saw my e-mail from PayPal and I'm trying to fight this to get my $32 back as well. Hopefully PayPal will see that all the chargebacks are a bit suspicious and refund money to everyone else who traded with this guy :V
