G’day Jenny  ;D

Surprised they sent an “engine”, when my brother got scammed by a Lego facebook purchase, they just sent him a picture of the Legos.

You have a Blue Heeler!  They are popular here with the Equestrian fanatics, see them and Corgis in stables.

What's really awesome is you made a video of everything Tuesday night of what happened today on Wednesday!

Problem with the Paypal scammers is they change their names over and over too.  I was scammed via China by a company that used a tracking number that was delivered to my city, they used that as proof it was delivered and can because the tracking only is granular to the zip code, no address. I was given a different tracking number initially from company, and that number was coming up as "waiting for package".  I show this to paypal, and they reply the different tracking number that was shown delivered was the only one they had on file, so didn't accept the one I showed them.  During the process, maybe 12-14 weeks, I'd notice on my paypal account the name of the merchant would change like every week.. no idea what was going on.

Yes, we have. He's not real good around strangers though, we always have to be careful especially if someone goes to shake my hand.

Took awhile for PayPal to come through for the second engine bought 5 minutes after the first.

They refunded the first within 24 hours. The second one took phone calls, a video, emails and four weeks to the day, but happy to report -

Someone else that got scammed, it stinks that PayPal allows them to continue to use PayPal when PayPal are totally aware that they are scammers -
