Tried to avoid delivery

I did eventually get everything within 26 hours but read on! Ordered 20, 000 gold from these people and was immediately told about the 12-24 hour delivery during the phone call! No one answers the phone. When questioned on the chat, they said they were from Houston but became confused when asked what state that was. When I called them on that confusion, the chat person said his boss told him to lie and say he was from the US. After that chat they would never chat again. (They track IPs and the site activity changes depending on the IP).

As with everyone else, they had excuse after excuse about how they were working to get me my gold... blah, blah.

When I realized I got hooked in a scam I did the following;

1 - I informed them that failure to deliver in exactly 24 hours would result in a claim with Paypal. I added that I would not drop the claim to get the item. I would only drop the claim when I received the item. I started sending this reminder every hour as a count down.

2 - At the 24 hour mark I called Paypal to register the claim (I had no account with them). The claim was filed immediately.

3 - Within 30 minutes Oofay called to ask me to drop the claim so they could deliver. They were reminded that the claim would be dropped when the items were received.

4 - 30 minutes after that they asked me to get online to receive delivery. When we acknowledged we were getting online, they said I had to remove the claim to get delivery.. we (Wife and I) reminded them again that receipt of the item was required and they went away again. ("Oh, ok.." click).

5 - 15 minutes later while I was online they sent me a PM informing me they wanted to deliver part of the gold (9100). I said that would be fine but the claim wouldn't be dropped until ALL the gold was delivered. ("OH..." and they logged off).

GOOD ONE HERE!

6 - 5 minutes later they offered to trade 19, 000 and refund cash for the other 1000. I agreed although I suspected I might not see the refund. They opened trade with me, placed a food item called "Tough Jerky" in the trade and typed in the amount 19, 000 but wouldn't submit the trade to me. They told me I needed to remove the PayPal claim now. I reminded that I would have to receive the item to close the claim, GOT UP AND WALKED AWAY from them in the game.

7 - 1 minute later they sent an ingame PM stating that they trusted me, opened the trade and gave me 19100 gold. Once I canceled the claim, they gave me another 900 gold to make a total of 20, 000 gold. They had it the whole time!

They will play you until they get the PayPal email. Then they will try to make you close the Paypal claim without delivering anything because (for those who don't know) you cannot reopen a PayPal claim or create a second claim on the same transaction. Once you close it, thats it! Do NOT CLOSE THE CLAIM UNTIL YOU HAVE DELIVERY! no matter what!

We were stunned at the number of attempts they made to avoid delivery and the variety of methods they tried.

Anyway, I hope that helps someone.
