Buyers Beware of ss_camaro_10 (Connor Wallace)

Long story short, I made a thread stating that I was wanting to buy a GoPro Hero 3. I was quickly messaged by ss_camaro_10, stating that he had one with many extra accessories that he was willing to sell. He was very responsive to all of my questions and we settled on a price.


After I sent the payment, he became very hard to get in touch with. I have repeatedly asked for a tracking number, but was told he didn't get one because he was in a hurry. Which then I asked him to check the receipt, but then was told that there wasn't one on it.


I have also asked numerous time for a receipt number, because you can use it to track packages sent through USPS. But was told there was not a receipt number on the receipt .


So my last option was to ask for a pic of the receipt, but have not been provided with that either. The only message I have received from him in the last two days was him stating he didn't screw me and promises he didn't, but still no proof.


I have saved all pms and emails between the seller and I. I am trying to be patient, reasonable, and have given him many chances to provide some kind of proof, but he just keeps beating around the bush. I have had nothing but great luck buying from members on this site, but I guess that isn't the case this time. I really hope he didn't screw me, but with the lack of proof and cooperation on his part leaves me no other option. I am really hoping this issue gets resolved!

And I completely agree about things coming up and people not having time, but in my opinion some sort of proof should have been sent. As I stated I have asked for things, and the responses I do get just dodge what I am asking for. Kind of frustrating especially since money has been sent and I haven't received anything in return. I want to trust his word, but with every passing day it gets a lot harder. I hope I am wrong about this whole situation, and if I am I expect to apologize for this thread.

Hope it comes around for you. I almost bought a set of rims on here a while back, but chickened out. I didn't feel safe putting out all that money.

I guess I have gotten comfortable buying from members here, but everyone I have dealt with has been a pleasure. I send the money, they mail the item and send me a tracking number simple as that. But I can definitely understand now about being apprehensive about putting out money like that.

yes with paypal.


I agree, like I said I even asked for a receipt number but was told that there wasn't a receipt number on the receipt. Confused the hell out of me. Then he asked if I wanted the confirmation number that was on the receipt, and I said yes. Why even ask if I want it, just send it. But as you can guess it was never sent.

Well unfortunately I made the decision to send the money as a gift. I wanted to be nice and make it so the seller wouldn't have any fees. Bad move on my part for being to trusting.

I plan on calling tomorrow if it doesn't show. Which I look forward to calling because I really don't think it's gonna show up.

Sorry to hear this buddy. Maybe you need to send a pic of yourself to him, I bet he will think twice about who he is messing with.

Sad we live in a world where you can't trust people anymore.

Hope this works out for you bro.

I received a pm a few mins ago from another member saying this same seller is trying to sell him something for a good price. So hopefully I have at least saved someone from a potential headache and screwing.

Let's hope he is indeed trustworthy. Fingers crossed, and if I'm wrong I will apologize and have this thread deleted. Until then without proof or a package I am left to believe otherwise.
