Your making me laugh with your post. I think its about his Direst TV for NFL games was cancelled because of the kneel downs - and he lost 275 dollars over it. I am messing because I have no idea either. He is over in Europe

Yes.

OP had a parts wanted thread for bolsters.

This dave guy contacts him thru PM that he has a set. $850 shipped.

Dave's friend send the OP pics.

Supposedly other member;s here where also interested in them.

Dave does not accept Paypal. OP sends him $275.00 deposit.

Nothing happens from here,

OP discover's the pics that where sent to him, where from a thread in 2012.

Sorry for the OP, I think he's lost his money cold. Unless OSO can trace daveshore's I.P. address (or something like that?) and are legally allowed to hand it over, there's not much anyone can do.

Thanks Goran for putting it out here, note to self, always visit the members profile before committing anything and (personally) don't trust new members or zero posters. Daveshore has now had more visitors to his profile in a couple of hours than most people get in a year!

Hopefully maybe someone could look into this Dave person. Sorry about your bad dealing here. Is the selling ad still up ? Prob all done on his cell phone for posting the sign up and posting the PM - anyway to look into the PM and Dave's sign up to OSO. Can any of that be tracked or traced backed to an IP address ?
