Hello, as some of you might know, I posted a bst topic about me wanting to buy a peak. The member “yoswag” pm’ed me I have a levi painted Peak. I was interested so the deal kept on going. Now he insisted I ship first since I have no feedback, which is true, but I have been a member of the forum for much longer. His feedback was questionable, with only having two. He insisted I ship first, saying he has more feedback.
I shipped out the day after. By luck and very rare chance, customs sent my cheif back. Keep in mind that it is mint, and a birthday gift by a close friend. So I messaged him, letting him know what happened. He said Okay, ship it again with less packaging, etc. I kept it back for a few days because of the long weekend. On the other forum, I was searching through old peak thread for about the 50th or 60th time. I found a link to a blog by a member. He owned the exact peak that “yoswag” sent me pictures of. I contacted him, he has very good trustworthy feedback, and he said that the peak pictures were absolutely his. At this point, I got very angry and upset knowing I was in for a scam, but not that upset because it never happened. I contacted him with warning, and he responded back saying “He doesn’t have a camera, it is not a scam”. Now I tried contacting him and “yoswag” cannot be found.
Moral of the story here is proceed with caution if you happen to trade or buy from him. I can provide a name and address, because I am sure he will make a new account and try to scam someone else again. Now you might say, no harm no foul right? Well no because he can easily make a new account and scam someone else.
