Just letting everyone out there know to keep from trades with Paw. Was supposed to buy a life gryffe from her but after sending money by paypal she disappeared in game and has not responded to any forms of communication.

Well, I don't know anything about this situation, since you haven't provided any proof of the 'scam', but I -JUST- did an absolutely perfect trade with her. /: And, not only that, I had to put her to wait for some time due to paypal problems on MY part, but it ended out all smooth.

From what I see, I see no proof. No logs or screen shots, since the one you provided barely says anything about the situation, moreso simply saying you have no GFL, whispered Paw, and need to download the little update for the desctag. n_n

You are not a gryffe. Please visit http://www.furcadia.com/digomarket/ for information about how to order one.

Sorry, you may not look at that player right now.

Need anything else from the log of this transaction? I have no problems giving you pm's or even paypal info to prove that money was sent and that I still don't have said life gryffe.

By the way the little box with the X in it is for voting Ninja for Pirates Vs Ninja. Good try on the little update thing though.

Yeah I'm sure. Sent multiple messages during the time of the transaction over  a pm here, whispers that day of and today as well as sending messages to the aim name associated with the account here. No responses at all after money was sent. I'm pretty sure it wasn't the problem of freezing.

I didn't want to have to take this route and post something like this here but after 2 days of no communication whatsoever I felt like I had to do something. No one enjoys losing money. If there was a problem with the transaction or Paw freezing / disconnecting then I'm sure she would have told me through pm or aim, but as I stated no communication has been made back to me either day that I have tried.

You should get in touch with Paypal and see if you can get the money back. Time may be of essence here, (Provided she did scam you, which I have no way of verifying.) I guess I can also look into this if there is no progress, but I cannot get anyone's Paypal money back. (Good example why you should buy digos from us -- may cost a bit more, but it is perfectly safe.)

Already a step ahead of you with Paypal looking into it. I try to cover myself on both ends when doing any kind of deal over the net.

I just want to know why she won't respond in any way, even to this topic. You'd think if she wasn't scamming then she'd at least say something in here. I just want what I paid for and all this will disappear.

No updates as of yet on this topic. Paw still dodges any form of communication that I try to have with her and Paypal is still looking into the dispute/claim.

Everyone still be careful when dealing with Paw until this can all be cleared. Don't need anyone else being scammed by her.

I saw Paw online last night being completely responsive and talkative in FurN.

I was reading through the forum before and saw someone do this...

Couldn't you get on an alt that Paw wouldn't recongnize and whisper them and see if they responds? If they do then maybe they are dodging your other whispers. =/

You can even inquire about the lifer for sale again I guess to see if they're still trying to sell it.

I'm only suggesting this because I saw someone else on FAM do it and thought it might be a good idea in this case. ^^;

Yeeah already tried that. I told a friend about what happened a day or two after it did. She whispered Paw and acted like she saw posts on here from her about wanting to sell the lifer. She also didn't get any responses back from her. My guess is she'll dodge the subject about the Life Gryffe all together if someone whispers her about it.

Would be nice if Paypal gets me my money back and she loses the lifer over all of this, buut now its just a waiting game I guess while all ends check into this (Paypal, Guardians, etc.).

Ran into Paw since I was told she was in FurN the other night being all talkative. Guess what happened a few minutes after I sat next to her? That's right she vanished once again.

Buut as all can see there's the lifer tag in her desc.

I sent her an email and asked for a statement on the matter. She does have a few days to respond back to us. Also refer to the email I sent you earlier today.

Not to mention the starting post on there was last updated a day AFTER this thread started, with the life gryffe tag still in it, saying she's selling. :/

Exactly. What a shame too. It would have been neat to have the AIM SN Sabbath.

To all just catching up and skipping the first page: The warning is to avoid trading with Paw because Zero Kinree paid Paw $85 paypal for a life gryffe, was never given the gryffe and has been avoided.

The matter is being investigated.

Thanks for catching up.

Emily (Paw) is known for this kind of behavior; on going since Where banned FAM kids go.
She emailed DJ to retrieve the username "sabbath" after I bought it.

hmmm. just adding my two cents. i purchased a dragon from paw about a month ago and had no problem at all getting the dragon. i paid for the dragon with scales and was given the dragon immediately after i sent payment. reason why i find this whole issue really bizarre to begin with.

If you buy with scales, the dragon is part of a secure trade so no duh they weren't able to log off on you.

it doesn't stop people from trying. there are people just dumb enough to do crap like that hugo. remember, this is furcadia and it's inhabited by idiots as much as it's inhabited by rational people.

Thanks to everyone who has provided information on this subject and thanks to those who are looking into it. I really appreciate it.  There's no new news on my end. Paypal is still looking into it all.
